What's Up Wednesday {January} & Work Wear Wednesday {Vol. 14}

Hey y'all,

I cannot believe we are already almost done with January! It has been a busy month at work between covering for a few people on vacation as well as getting all the required forms for employee taxes ready to go but we are heading into February on a calmer note.
, Foundation Review!
I am linking up with Sheaffer and Shay for What's Up Wednesday.

1. What I'm Eating This Week:

With my birthday this week, dinners are all over the place! I did make some sheet pan fried rice inspired by this recipe and Greek chicken bowls for lunches this week. Here are my dinners:

M- McAlister's Club with Mac & Cheese (birthday coupon)
T- Event at Church - CFA sandwhich, chips, cookie
W- Chic-fil-a nuggets (January app reward)
R-Leftover Greek chicken bowl
F- out with a friend
S- Chuy's for my birthday with friends
Sun - supper club - soups

2. What I'm Reminiscing About:

Past birthdays! Here's celebrating 25 at the Carolina Inn's tea service with friends.

3. What I'm Loving:

I went on Friday to the US Figure Skating Nationals Rhythm Dance Competition as part of an early birthday gift from my parents. It was a wonderful night watching some of my favorites skate.

4. What I've Been Up To:

In January, I have pet sat for two different friends, went to figure skating, deep cleaned my closet and sent more items to ThredUp, book club, and getting back into the routine after the holidays.

5. What I'm Dreading:

No dreadful thoughts over here this week.

6: What I'm Working On:

Getting back into a morning routine - over the holidays I threw off my sleep schedule and with pet sitting I have not found my groove again. I only have one weekend out of town in February so I hope I can get back to getting up, a 15 min exercise video, and my quiet time then not rushing to get ready.

7: What I'm Excited About

I ordered the Flawless in Five set from BeautyCounter (my sweet sorority sister McKenzie is my consultant, you can follow her and her sweet family here). I have had this on my list for awhile and transitioning to safer products is one of my personal goals in 2020. My set should arrive tomorrow.

8. What I'm Watching/Reading

US Figure Skating on NBC/NBCSN was the only thing on my DVR last weekend. I also have been loving Project Runway, Prodigal Son, and the Bold Type is back this month.
For reading, of the five books I have read, I only read two as physical books - My Friend Anna and The Bride Test. I will share my thoughts about them next week in my January reads.

9. What I'm Listening To:

I have been on a big audiobook kick and completed An American Marriage, The Hate You Give, and Everything, Everything.

I am currently listening to In The Woods on my commute and during work hours I have been listening to Anthony O'Neal on Annie F. Down's podcast, But Not All At Once podcast, and the Dateline podcast (episodes turned into podcasts).

10. What I'm Wearing:
