Hi Loves! Last day of January! I’m super excited to join Shay and Sheaffer today for What’s up Wednesday.I actually had so much to share today, I had to cut some things out, LOL!

1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS MONTH: All the clean, healthy eating around here, but will be indulging this weekend. I shared with you on Monday HERE but I  also feel tastes of Spring when I make this high protein smoothie.

Making these for Mr. Nine and I: Air Fryer Sirloin Steak Strips!!

AND My Favorite Soup this month. The Pasta Fagioli from Skinny Taste where I leave out the pasta, lol and add Italian Turkey sausage: 

2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT: Today, my Identical Twin 2nd Cousins turn 32!!! Seems like yesterday mom and I were holding them in our arms. Little did we know more identical twins would grace us later in life. AND Look at that big hair!! 


3: WHAT IM LOVING: ANYTIME we can see the granddaughters! Not nearly enough. #loveourgranddaughters They turned 4 months old on Sunday. Growing onto their sweaters grammy got them.

And nature leaning towards Spring coming soon. I can't believe the swan is back this early and hanging our with the duck couple, lol.


4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO: Getting travel itineraries ready and outfits, lol Here is one cute lil Romper going with me. I'll wear with black hose and my INEZ Boots!

And trying a new skincare routine I LOVE!! Use code ANDREANINE20 to get 20% off everything on the site plus some of Oprah's favorite Things! LOVE all the products from Fount Society!

5: WHAT I’M DREADING: more of the sloppy gray part of the winter season. Icky! 


6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON: Planning a Bridal Shower for the Bride To Be in the family and trying to find dresses for all the events! The WEDDING, the shower, the rehearsal, the luncheon and a Party....lots of fun shopping to do. And a note of frustration, why are all mother's dresses so matronly, I'm not even looking under that category, I'll just browse party and cocktail dresses, lol. Here is a sneak peek of the shower invites. Going to have it at the Cake Bake Shop down by Indy. It'll be beautiful!

7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT: Leaving on a Jet Plane tomorrow! 




American Nightmare on Netflix was sooo good. Only 3 episodes and so bizarre.

And starting this tonight!

11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND: Stay Tuned, it won’t be in Indiana. Lol. 


12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH: Birthdays for a few ladies in the fam. Another trip, this time to Florida with my Mama! 

Here’s a photo of the last time we were in the sunshine state together. Her 70th birthday. 


13: FAVORITE AMAZON FIND: Rug Grippers! Mr. Nine found THESE. The thin rug gripper mats underneath was just not working. Especially when our little Stella slides into the front door whenever a delivery man comes, and the rug flails all over the place. These Grippers have literally saved our rug life, lol, no more sliding. I love them so much they are now under every single rug!

Oh, and this New Rug is not from Amazon, but I love it and it's a great price. This is a 2'x5' size and in the kitchen.


  1. Have a great time on your trip! Love the outfit pics and the throwback pics- your hair is on point! Also, the pics of the twins. Ok, I love everything basically- safe travels, pretty lady.

  2. I hope you blog your packing list! Love stuff like that! Have an amazing trip - you deserve it! I love, love, love the picture of you and mom holding the other set of twin girls! How cool!

  3. Where are you going? Lol! Enjoy your weekend my friend. I know you will look amazing in that fun romper. Love the throwback pic and I've been enjoying your healthy recipes. Keep em coming!


  4. Hope you have a great trip! I loved The Housemaid too. The rug grippers seem smart!
