What's Up Wednesday

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

I am super excited to be partying with Mix and Match Mama and Pinterest Told Me To, today! I just love these two blogs and have found lots of other bloggers that I follow from them! If you haven't checked them out, you totally should!

This is a new monthly link up where you talk about, What's up??!! So let's get started!

What We are Eating this Week:

I posted my meal plan on Weigh in Monday. Recipes for Cornflake Chicken and Cheeseburger salad will be up soon, with Weight Watchers points included, of course!

What I am Reminiscing About:

Swimming. Last week, we went to North Conway for a few days during April vacation and the kids and I had so much fun with friends. It was so relaxing to just hang out and swim all day!

What I'm Loving: 

Warmer weather! It is sloooooowly but surely getting nicer around here and I am loving all the outside time my kids are getting. Owen learned to ride his bike without training wheels and both kids got new bikes! They have loved riding them and the weather can only get better from here on out! 

So proud of himself! 

New Star Wars bike! Those training wheels came right off after the pic! 

Olivia's new bike!

What We've Been Up To:

Making healthier choices! I alone am doing Weight Watchers, but the whole family is working on making healthier choices for our body. Olivia is getting into it with me and learning to take care of her body on her own. Both on the inside and the outside. How do I have an almost 9 year old?

What I'm Dreading:

Cleaning the house today. I need to clean the bathroom and mop floors, two of my least favorite tasks! Since I don't generally take pictures of myself cleaning, here are a few funny ecards (if you are not new here, you know how much I love these!) to make you laugh!

What I'm Working On:

Consistent exercise! I started doing PiYo last night. A friend of mine on the west coast and I are challenging each other to stick to the 8 week PiYo workout schedule and I love a good challenge partner! Combined with my fitness challenge, I can not make excuses! I got Olivia in on it with me and we worked out together last night! She loved the workout too, so it will be great for both of us!


What I'm Excited About:

We are finally getting close to putting our upstairs on and I couldn't be more excited! We so badly need the space, and I can't wait to pull up to this beautiful house!

What I'm Watching/Reading:

I just finished two Emily Giffin books, that I received from my Books and Bloggers Swap. Book reviews to come!

As for watching, I am still binge watching Friday Night Lights. Every Night. Love it!

What I'm Listening To:

Nothing. It is quiet in the house right now. Gotta love a few minutes of quiet before the day starts! 

What I'm Wearing:

As I write, pajamas! Which reminds me I could use some new spring/summer pajamas, like these....

What I'm Doing this Weekend:

Opening day for Little League. Owen is playing tee ball for the first time and I can't wait to see it!

This was his first time playing soccer! 

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:

What am I not looking forward to??

May is busy, but all really great things! Baseball, dance and prep for recital, Kindergarten meeting and screening, end of the year party for Girl Scout Leaders and daughters, a very special boy in my life is being baptized, a trip to Rhode Island,  my one year blog anniversary and my 10 year wedding anniversary!! Talk about crazy and fun and exciting and special, this month has it all!

10 years!

What Else is New:

Well, I have a fabulous new pair of wedges, but you have to wait until Friday Favorites to see them! 

What Do I Want for Mother's Day:

Olivia has a secret up her sleeve for Mothers Day that she is so excited about and because of how much she is into it and can't wait for Mother's Day, I only want that! It makes my heart happy just to see her want to do something special for me. Most of the time Sometimes motherhood can be a thankless job, so to see her want to do something nice for me, is all I can ask for! Of course, I wouldn't turn any other goodies away, like flowers, chocolates, or some cute new pajamas (Mike see above)!!

That's all that UP, with me, What's up with you? 

Have a great Wednesday! 


  1. Ooh sounds like you had a busy month and have another coming up! Your posts are always so vibrant I'm sat here *in pjs* excited for you

  2. Glad you guys are getting some warmer weather. We've had some warmer days but we keep getting hit with rain and thunderstorms so its kind of difficult to enjoy it. I am with you, I HATE cleaning the bathrooms. I made a deal with my husband that if he cleaned our toilets, I would do ALL of the chores he hates doing. I can clean a sink full of disgusting dishes and fold mountains of laundry, no problem. But toilets? They kill me.. Haha!

  3. You are one busy momma!...A momma with a plan and I love it! congrats on trying to live a healthy lifestyle. I love your humor posts...that is sooooo me!


I would love to hear your comments and suggestions...
