What's Up Wednesday {2.22.17}

Happy Wednesday! Today our weather is going to be in the 70's! That is simply just insane but I will gladly take it!!

Today I'm linking up with Mel, Shay & Shaeffer for What's Up Wednedsay

What we're eating this week:

On Monday I made one of our favorites - one pan sausage & veggies

We had tacos for taco Tuesday last night per Brayden's request. The rest of the week will be easy stuff but will also include my shrimp & asparagus over quinoa

This Happy Life:

What I'm reminiscing about:

Our 2015 Disney trip has been on my mind lately since I'm now in full planning mode for our trip later this year. We had the absolute best time last time we went and I can only hope it will be the same if not better this year

What I'm loving:

My new hoodie! It's so gorgeous in person and so comfy! Best purchase I've made in a while

I am also loving these wedges - I have been eyeing them since last year and they are finally on sale! Even on sale, they are more than I usually spend on shoes, but I had a Nordstrom credit so I finally bit the bullet - I cannot wait to get them!

What we've been up to:

With this crazy gorgeous weather, we've been outside alot! Park time, walks, scooters, bikes, playing baseball, you name it we've been doing it

What I'm dreading:

Ughhh my umbilical hernia is next Thursday and to say I'm nervous would be an understatement! I have had 3 c-sections so you think I wouldn't be so anxious but I am. This will be my first time being completely put under and I think that has me the most nervous. I just want it to go smooth and be over with already

What I'm working on:

Actually quite a few projects! I've been so lucky with some amazing opportunities that have come my way - you'll be seeing everything on the blog in the next few weeks!

What I'm excited about:

Having my surgery be over and behind me is one. Meeting my new nephew in a few weeks is another! 

What I'm watching/reading:

Still watching the Bachelor but I gotta say I'm pretty much over this season already. I personally don't see Nick ending up with any of these girls.

How to Get Away with Murder is still on my watch list and this week is the season finale and I can't wait for everything to come together

What I'm listening to:

Still have that Kidz Bop cd in the car and every time the kids demand to listen to Sugar & Shut Up & Dance With Me

What I'm wearing:

I already mentioned my hoodie - I also can't get enough of my new jeans and thanks to this awesome weather I've been able to wear my converse daily

What I'm doing this weekend:

Saturday I'm hanging with my sister and nephew who I haven't seen in forever it seems - other than that we don't have any set plans. The weather is suppose to be crummy so I see lots of inside play happening. Oh, and the Oscars are on on Sunday so I will hopefully be able to watch the Red Carpet and some of them

What I'm looking forward to next month:

Well it will be our second month for our Girl Chat link up! Hopefully you all join in :)

What else is new:

I just had to register both girls for preschool in the fall and I really can't believe that Avery will be starting in the 3's program. She is going to be one of the young ones with her August birthday, so total other side of Ella who is September so she is the oldest. It's just weird to me they are only 1 grade apart in school!

Bonus Question: What is your “can’t live without” beauty product?

I've only been using this for a couple of months but I really love this face mask by Kiehl's

Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!

  1. Such a great what's up Wednesday! Isn't it so surreal when you register your kids for preschool! I love your new hoodie, so so cute and it looks so soft. I hope you have a wonderful day sweetie!

  2. Yay for Disney! You got to ride with Jasmine last time? How cool! I had a hernia surgery after 3 c-sections too. It wasn't just an umbilical hernia though, I also had separated muscles put back together. It was a hard recovery, but I think just the belly button shouldn't be as bad!

  3. Aw the Disney pics are so cute! I love that hoodie and those wedges as well! Super cute!

  4. I'm so excited for your Disney trip! I can't wait to hear about it! I'm definitely ordering that hoodie in the berry color - I just can't decide if I want striped or solid! Good luck with your surgery - I will be thinking of you! I've been getting lots of wear out of my Shorelines lately too!

  5. Disney is such a great time! I wish we were going again this year but I think we're going to wait until next. I hope everything goes smoothly for you next week, keep us posted. And yay for some fun blogging opportunities! Looking forward to our linkup again too :) Beautifully Candid

  6. Praying for you, Lizzie! Any time you have to be put under it's always scary. Hopefully it will be quick and successful and you'll recover quickly. How long did they say that the recovery period is?

  7. That hoodie is SO cute! I am swooning over it and it's stripey glory too :P. I'll be praying your surgery goes well friend.

  8. Oh my girl I will be lifting you up in prayer keep us posted!!!! So exciting on the blog developments - woot woot! Also that hoodie is SO cute! Xoxo Erin

  9. Girl, you got this surgery. If you need anything, let me know. Get the Egyptian Magic after it heals to reduce the scar. Take it easy. You may feel good after a few days, but you don't want to pull a stitch or prolong your surgery. I will be thinking of you!

  10. Isn't that face mask the best? It's my go-to!!! The shrimp and asparagus looks delicious and you have to report back on those wedges - I love them!
