What’s Up Wednesday

It’s been quite a few months since I’ve linked up with these girls for What’s Up Wednesday, so it’s high time I jump in and share what’s going on with the Richardson’s here of late. Be sure to check and see what MelShay and Sheaffer are all up to this week too. I’m also linking up with Shelly for her Royally Waiting Wednesday link up. Here’s what you’ll find out.

What we’re eating this week…

Salmon and roasted carrots, red onion and asparagus.

Katie and I are still on our clean eating program which mean Kent is by default.

Spaghetti squash, roasted zucchini and yellow squash, shrimp and homemade marinara.

Baked cod, sauteed green beans and salad.

Buffalo chicken wraps and Cobb salad.

Fruit smoothie bowls

Coffee protein shakes

Trying to get in more water by adding citrus and mint to it…it’s not working. I’m just not a water drinker. I dare say I’m dehydrated most of the time since I gave up diet cokes ages ago and my beloved Crystal Light Peach Mango Green Tea when we started eating clean. That doesn’t leave me with many choices.

What I’m reminiscing about…

Being back at the beach. I see friends on vacations and want to go back to my happy place. 

What I’m loving…

Having this girlie at home and getting to do lots of hanging out with her.

And Rodan + Fields has an awesome deal right now.

Order any one of our 4 regimens and Lash Boost and you’ll receive 20% off BOTH. Order as a PC (Preferred Customer) and receive and additional 10% off plus FREE shipping.

Katie and I have both had AH-MAZING results with Lash Boost and I will never go without it.

Those are my baby blues right there and you can see what a huge difference it’s made for me and just how much lashes make your eyes POP!

Leave a comment or email me with any questions. Take this quick quiz and find which regimen is right for you. Email the results to yourself and I’ll get a copy too. If I get an email with your results, I’ll send you a mini-facial to try.

What we’ve been up to…

Working out and then working out some more.

 Playing with little friends.

What I’m dreading…

The end of summer and Katie going back to school which will actually be going to Florence, Italy for the semester. Exciting for her. Nerve wracking for the mama?.

What I’m working on…

No huge projects, but changing up things here and there around the house and adding a few festive 4th of July decorations.

What I’m excited about…

In a week and a half our friends we always stay with in Nashville will be here to visit and we can repay some of their never ending hospitality.

What I’m watching/reading…

Reruns! Is anyone else ready for the new seasons of TV to start? We are bored to death. We’ve watched everything we had recorded on the DVR and now we sit and wait.

I’ve come to the conclusion that all my past magazine reading has been replaced with blogs.

Some of my daily reads are:

A Gal Named Al

Living On Cloud Nine

The Queen In Between

and a bunch of others. Check out the sidebar to see a list of bloggers you might like to check out. These are the girls I’m in contact with most days through our blogs and it’s such a great community.

What I’m listening to…

We LOVE Alexa! I had no idea we’d use her so much, but you just come downstairs and say, “Alexa, play country music” and on it comes. Love it!!!

Get your own Alexa HERE

What I’m wearing…

 tee // jeans // wedges // purse

 swing dress / shoes necklace / earrings

 strappy tank / jeans / sandals

similar dress / sandals

What I’m doing this weekend…

We are going to have company for the next week. Well, really the next month cycling in and out.

What I’m looking forward to next month…

Making a trip to Oklahoma to see Kent’s parents and Benny is meeting us there.

What else is new…

I’m in week 5 of 6 of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss. I can see a difference in the way my clothes fit and I can tell I’m getting stronger. Is this something y’all are interested in learning more about? I thought I’d do a post on it once I’m done.

Hope you’re having a great week. I was MIA yesterday. Monday I woke up with a stomach bug and slept most of the day and never got around to blogging. Thankfully yesterday was I almost completely back to myself and today I’ll be 100%.

    A super duper WUW!! Yes to hosting great friends and to all your clean eating! Looks delish! I love your sweet 4th decor! So cool about Florence, Italy! It was our favorite city in Italy but I know how tough to have your baby girl even further. Enjoy these precious weeks sweet-n-pretty mama!

      I cannot wait til' we get to meet one of these days, Andrea!!! You are the best commenter EVER. No one wonder you are such an awesome blogger, you have such a gift with "the words".? Have a great day my pretty friend!!!

    Thanks for being a reader! 🙂 My magazine reading has fallen by the wayside too- I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings by skipping out on a day of their blog reading, and I feel like I can never keep up! Did you watch Big Little Lies on HBO? I finally binged it this past weekend, and while I could do without the nudity, Liane Moriarty definitely twisted the plot so many times that she kept me guessing until the very last 5 minutes! The acting was superb, too. If you still haven't given Last Man Standing a chance, for sure do it! There's also going to be a new real estate show in Cali on Bravo in a few weeks that I'm excited to watch. Have a great Wednesday!

      I know, it's hard to read them all!!! Maybe I can get Katie to give Big Little Lies a go with me while she's here. As for Last Man Standing…well, Kent keeps asking how many times can I keep watching it…I love that show and I'm just beyond sad they cancelled it. He told me this week he read Fox wasn't going to pick it up either. WHAAAAA!!!! XO

    You've been holding out! I haven't seen all these dishes posted on the healthy eating group. I'm dying over here at how delish they all look! How fun to be spending so much time with your girl and getting healthy and strong together. I have that black/tan dress too! And thanks so much sweet lady for the shoutout!

    • June 28, 2017 / 4:41 pm

      Hahaha! I think I have trouble posting in both groups…the FWTFL and the Challenge to Change. (since I'm paying for FTWFL…I'm def doing that?) Love your blog and hope we get to meet someday!

  4. June 28, 2017 / 6:02 pm

    Florence, Italy!! How exciting! Katie and Stephanie might become neighbors! Lol!!

    • June 29, 2017 / 2:42 pm

      Well that would be a HOOT!!!

  5. June 28, 2017 / 6:33 pm

    You have been eating some healthy things!! Looks so good! Im reminiscing about our beach trip too, I want to go back!

    Pumps and Push-Ups

    • June 29, 2017 / 2:46 pm

      Eating healthy really isn't so bad? but I miss my daily chocolate. Have a great day!

    Sorry to hear you had a stomach bug! All your food dishes look delicious and so does the pitcher of water. I am not a big water drinker either, but I'm working on it. We also love the Echo, and it is a constant companion in the kitchen. I'm so excited for your daughter to go to Florence for a semester. She will have a wonderful time! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

    • June 29, 2017 / 2:44 pm

      Thanks so much Tanya!!! Our Echo is in the kitchen too. 🙂 Hope you're having a wonderful week!

  7. July 3, 2017 / 6:52 pm

    Yes Lisa, my magazine reading is ZERO now that I read blogs. I have not renewed any magazine subscriptions in ages, they actually bore me now! I can totally see a difference in your body since you've been on the program – good for you, your hard work is paying off and you look FABULOUS!!!!!!

    • July 4, 2017 / 2:16 am

      Oh Kellyann! You are so sweet! Thanks for the kind words and encouragement. I hope I can stick with it for the most part after we finish this week! I'd hug you if I could! XOXO
