I answered several of the questions from the prompt below, (skipping anything that made me stare at the computer screen for too long trying to think of an answer...), so read on to see what's been going on around here this March.
Hard boiled eggs have been my breakfast of choice lately. I like that I can prepare a bunch in advance (I always follow this recipe) and they're ready to go in the morning with minimal prep work. Sometimes I keep them simple salt and Cayenne pepper, other times I douse them with Frank's Hot Sauce.
What I'm loving...
My nails-of-steel combo. I've been using these two top coats for the past couple of months and they have changed my life! That sounds really dramatic, but going from painting my nails 3-4 times per week to 1-2 times per week is a big deal for me! I usually paint my nails at night and apply Seche Vite to the wet nail polish. I try to be done with that about 30 minutes before bed time because even though Seche Vite helps them dry quickly, I still feel like they aren't completely "set" right away. Then in the morning after I wake, I usually have coffee and computer time before I work out. I'll apply the Gel Setter at that time, and it's fully dry in about 10 minutes. I am honestly so shocked at how long this combo helps my nail polish last. (I shared a few more of my manicure strategies in question two of this post if you missed it!)
What we've been up to...
If you follow on Snapchat you already saw that we decided to try an Easter Brunch Cruise instead of a traditional Easter Dinner this year. We have no family in the area so that can make some holidays feel lonely, and I wanted something fun to do that day. It ended up being so enjoyable for the whole family (even the kids who were not excited about it going into it) and hopefully it will be our new Easter tradition. We went on Flagship Cruises (not sponsored, not affiliate-linked) and I would gladly recommend the experience to locals or San Diego tourists. It would be great for a special occasion or just because you're visiting and want to enjoy a meal and see a big variety of city views by water.

What I'm working on...
I'll be traveling with my family for Spring Break in April so I'm trying to get a few blog posts prepared in advance so it's not complete radio silence here that week.
What I'm excited about...
Spring Break! We have a fun trip planned (more details to come in April) and it's always fun to explore a new place and make memories as a family.
What I'm watching...
Dancing with the Stars. This is the only TV show I watch any more, and the first episode was so fun. I'm so glad to have Edyta back as a pro dancer, but sadly she's paired with Geraldo Rivera (who dances as well as would be expected for a 72 year old) so I don't think she'll be around long. From week one I was most impressed with Peta + Nyle and Wanya + Lindsay and I can't wait to see how everyone progresses with the season.
What I'm reading...
The Nightingale. I've heard soooo many good things about this book from bloggers and Instagrammers I follow. I just started it on Sunday and I'm only Chapter Two so I don't have much else to say about it other than I'm excited to get back into reading again and I'm worried that my expectations are too high!
What I'm listening to:
Work work work work work. (You know, the Rihanna/Drake song.) Actually, I rarely get to listen to the whole song because my kids hate it ("Those are the most boring lyrics ever!") and they're in the car with me a lot. But somehow it's always stuck in my head and is the first song that came to mind for this question.
What I'm wearing:
I've done four outfit recaps since my last What's Up Wednesday post (One, Two, Three, Four), but just like last month, here are four more outfits that haven't made the blog yet:

Apparently another thing I'm loving lately would be these boots since I'm wearing them (in two colors) in three outfits! Carylee created a monster with these.
What I'm doing this weekend...
I have one friend coming in town this weekend (Spring brings a lot of visitors to San Diego!) and another local friend celebrating a birthday this weekend so while I don't what all the exact plans are just yet, it should be fun times with some of my favorite people.
What I'm looking forward to next month...
Did I mention I'm looking forward to Spring Break?

That wraps it up for today and I'll be back here on Friday with an outfit recap and update on the results of my Fitness Content Survey!
