What's Up Wednesday?!

Wednesday, May 27, 2015

Good morning! Today I am linking up with one of my favorite bloggers, Shay, for What's up Wednesday. Time to find out what is going on with our family this month and next! There is no shortage of exciting things happening for us this time of year! Let's get started! 

What we are eating this week...

I had this cheeseburger salad instead of a burger on a bun last night for dinner and it was delicious! 

I made these 1 point mini cupcakes for dessert and they were perfect! Recipe up tomorrow! 

What I am reminiscing about...

My wedding day! Tomorrow will be our 10 year wedding anniversary! I can not believe that we have been married for 10 years. Honestly, where does the time go? 10 years, 2 houses and 2 kids later and we are still working hard every day on this marriage and our life. It isn't always easy, some days it is downright hard, but I tell you, I still couldn't imagine living this life with anyone but him. Happy Anniversary Mike! 

What I'm loving...

This guy...

And the beautiful life we have created! 

What we've been up to...

We have been doing a whole lot of watching t-ball and I just love it! Watching the young kids playing ball for the first time and just trying to figure it all out, is adorable and hysterical and just so much fun! Owen has really improved in the few weeks that he has been playing now, he runs when he hits the ball...the correct way, he touches the bases when he runs, and he no longer tries to catch the ball when he is running the bases only when he plays the field! Everyone just thinks he is the cutest thing when he is out there playing and I have to agree! 

Practicing snapping his fingers in the field! 

What I am dreading...

Honestly, right now, nothing! We have so many great things going on that I can't wait for and nothing that I am dreading right now! 

What I'm working on...

I have a really sweet book from when Olivia graduated from pre-school and I am working on creating this book for the kids in Owen's graduating class. It is something that I will cherish forever and I am so glad that I will have one for both kiddos. It is also an excuse to get together with a friend I haven't seen in a long time while we work on them! Gotta love that! 

What I'm excited about...

Olivia's dance recital! She has worked so hard this year and I can't wait to see her dances come together on stage! Not only can I not wait to see the performance, but it also marks the end of dance for the summer and that means less running around. The first week in June is the last dance class, dress rehearsal and the performance. Owen also graduates from pre-school. So we are marking things off the list and my schedule is slowly opening up, that is something to be excited about!! 

A little bit of an exaggerated pose, but a
sneak peak at her Acro costume! 

What I'm Watching...

After finishing Friday Night Lights, I haven't picked up a new series yet. I have watched a few shows but nothing has sucked me in. Shows that I love...Parenthood, Blacklist, Scandal, Downton Abbey and Gilmore Girls. Have any other suggestions for what I should watch next?? I would love to hear them! 

What I'm Reading...

Last week I read, The Girl on the Train and oh my goodness, I couldn't put it down! It was such a great book and not at all what I was expecting! I have read some really good books in the last few months and I can't wait to tell you all about them in my next book review! 

Want to see everything I have been reading? You can follow me on Goodreads

What I'm Listening to...

A fan! It is actually hot today and the kids needed a fan to sleep....summer is coming! 

What I'm wearing...

Finally some spring clothes! We are finally having some pretty consistent warmer temperatures around here and I am loving my capris and skirts. I have really loved the maxi skirt and jean jacket combo this spring and will transition this in the fall as well! So comfortable and stylish! Today I went with the short maxi, t-shirt and my new wedges! Sorry for the blurry pic, but you get the idea!  

What I'm doing this weekend...

We have a pretty exciting weekend coming up. A very special boy in our life is being baptized and Mike and I are the godparents. We couldn't be more honored and we will be going to Rhode Island this weekend for the celebration. I can not wait. While we are down there we will be attending the Air Show and spending one night with my cousin and her family. It is going to be the best weekend! 

What I'm looking forward to next month....

Summer Vacation! It is almost here! I can not wait to spend my days with the kiddos, lots of beach days and just no more running around. It always gets so busy at the end of the year that I just can't wait to relax during the summer. By mid August, I will be ready to get back to our routine, but right now I can't wait to throw it out the window! 

What else is new???

Not much! 

Hope you all have a great Wednesday!

  4. Congrats on 10 years and Happy Anniversary! We just finished our T-ball season as well and my lil guy was doing the same thing and trying to catch his ball after he hit it! It was so funny! But now he is running the bases and has come a long way! Glad you lil guy is showing improvement too!

  6. What a nice post! I love Friday Night Lights and I also wish I could find another show on netflix to get sucked into... I love parenthood as well. I have yet to get into Scandal so maybe I should give it a try. I am also going to add you on goodreads as I have become a big reader lately!

    1. Let me know if you find anything to watch! Sounds like we have the same taste in tv shows!
