What's Up Wednesday: Week 4

Wednesday, February 25, 2015



Welcome to week 4 of What's Up Wednesday! This is a very special week. You want to know why? Well I'm going to tell you. Katie, Shannon and I have starting having guest hosts join us for What's Up Wednesday. This week we are featuring one of my newest blogging friends and fellow book lover, Chelsie from Life with Rosie. Be sure to hop on over to her little piece of interwebs and check her out! I'm sure you'll love her!

This week is also special because we've started something else new for What's Up Wednesday. We are going to include one bonus question each week. So if you have some suggestions for bonus questions please leave them below! I would love to know what questions you would like to answer!

What I loved about this past week//

I got the job I applied for. Remember last week I told y'all how I had applied for a job and to keep your fingers crossed?! Well, I got it. Thanks for all of your well wishes!

The job is in a cosmetic lab of  a pharmaceutical company just 15 minutes from my house. I'm so excited (and a little nervous) to start this job. But ultimately I can't wait. Once I get myself situated in the job I'll be sure to tell y'all everything about it!

Also, Christy actually let me take a few pictures of her. She is normally famous for moving her head at the last second so you end up with this blurry light brown blob in your picture.

  





What I'm looking forward to//

Not having snow on the ground, and as I'm typing this... it's snowing! Yeah, I don't see that happening any time soon though a lot of the snow did melt away this past week.



And as a second to not having snow on the ground, I'm looking forward to warmer weather. One day this past week it was -2 as I was driving into work. I don't remember a time ever in my life that it has been in the negatives in Virginia.




What I'm craving//

There is this local place called The Alamo, it's in the heart of (read: the not so good part of) Richmond and it has some of the best barbecue I've ever tasted. Now where I'm from you have "Carolina" style barbecue which has vinegar based sauce and then there is the other mustard based barbecue. Usually I tend to gravitate towards Carolina style with the vinegar, but this place in Richmond serves mustard based barbecue and it is to die for!

Like I said, it's in the not so good part of Richmond, so my friends and I will only go for lunch, but I've really been craving it. Maybe I can talk them into going up there for lunch this weekend?!



What I'm reading//

I just finished up an audiobook that I ended up loving! It is called Deadline by Sandra Brown. Awesome action/mystery book! So Monday night I started Cinder. There is no better way to start reading a book than a comfy seat on the couch and some hot chocolate. Let me tell you! So far I'm really enjoying the book!



I also pretty much have my reading list picked out for the month. So I'm pretty excited to read these new books and step out of my comfort zone with books a little!



So now it's your turn to link up! Grab a button and add your link!

  3. Now you've got me craving BBQ! Ahh! I'm from Kansas City, which is the BBQ capital of the world, and omg, it's sooooo good. I miss it terribly and eat as much as possible when I'm visiting home. It's tomato based sauces there for the most part and sooo yummy! :)

  9. Thanks Janelle! And I don't think I've ever had a tomato based sauce. I wonder if I would like it. Maybe I'll have to try some BBQ when I head out west and see if it compares to my beloved Carolina style. :)

  18. Oh I hear you! I was excited about our first snow because let's be real, it's Virginia and we're lucky if we get anything over a dusting! But I'm a little sick of it now!

  19. Thanks!! Christy has been loving the snow recently. If only I could share her enthusiasm.

  20. Thank you so much Elizabeth! Did you get any snow with the storm that moved though? My in-laws in Alabama got hit with over a foot of snow!

  21. Thank you Marissa! I'm very excited to start it, but also a little nervous!

  22. Thanks Shannon. She's my little love. And I'm going to try to get through them. Most of the time I can only read 2 books a month.

  23. The storm was a bit of a joke -- we got beautiful fluffy flakes, but nothing stuck. :( I would have liked a snow day!
