What's Up Wednesday {3.29.17}

I can't believe it's already Wednesday! This week is flying and it's probably because I've packed our days to the max with stuff. I swear come Friday I am going to collapse, but hey, it's all worth it :)

Today I'm linking up with MelShay & Shaeffer for What's Up Wednedsay

What we're eating this week:

I made these shrimp fajitas last night and they were AMAZING!! Definitely adding them to our rotation! Plus it was all cooked on a sheet pan so cleaning was a cinch!

Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas:

What I'm reminiscing about:

Like always just how fast my kids are growing. This picture popped up on my Facebook memory the the other day and I almost cried. Brayden wasn't even 1 here and he's going to be 7 this year. 7! I just can't.

Image may contain: 2 people, indoor

What I'm loving:

Spring Break and having all my kids together to do fun stuff with - even if they are driving me completely insane along the way :)

What we've been up to:

I feel like we've been going non stop! We've gone to the library, the nature center, the farm, out to lunch and on Monday night I took the bigs to Medieval Times after winning 2 free tickets. My Mom came with too and the kids had a blast but it was a really late night. And we're only half way through our Spring Break week!

What I'm dreading:

Nothing at the moment, thank goodness!!

What I'm working on:

I started a Facebook group called We Heart Deals where I share tons of awesome deals, so I've been working on trying to grow the group. If you want to join, you can here :)

What I'm excited about:

Having more fun with my kiddos the rest of the week and going to brunch with my friends Saturday. I haven't seen them in forever!

What I'm watching/reading:

Watching Dancing with the Stars, The Americans and still trying to finish season 1 of Schitts Creek on Netflix. Oh and all the Datelines which give me so many nightmares #whenwillilearn

What I'm listening to:

Right now the TV is on in the background but at home the kids are loving putting on the songs from Trolls & Moana on youtube

What I'm wearing:

A whole lot of casual clothes - I'm so happy to be fitting into my jeans again after my surgery!!

You can find similar colors of this hoodie here - it's so soft and cozy and so cheap!!

What I'm doing this weekend:

Friday night I'm looking forward to going to bed early and getting to sleep in (hopefully) Saturday is Ella's dance class then brunch with my friends and Sunday is open right now. I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend!

What I'm looking forward to next month:

April is filling up so quickly! We have Easter, baseball games, birthday parties, a communion, Ella's dance recital and more! It's going to be a fun month but I know it's going to fly by because of how much we have going on.

What else is new:

Nothing really - I'm finally able to start running again after surgery. I'm still on a no lifting restriction for a couple more weeks and I'm really trying to be good and follow that but it's getting pretty hard with a tornado toddler around :)  

Also new is my Facebook group that I mentioned above - be sure and join here, I would love to have you!!

Happy Wednesday!!

  1. Oh man I am so happy to hear that your spring break is going so well! Glad to hear that you can run again too. Keeping those restrictions becomes SO hard when you start to feel normal. Happy Wednesday!

  2. We are so ready for spring break over here!!
    I'm loving the We Heart Deals group!! This mama loves a good deal!

  3. Those Facebook memories get me every day right in the feelings. Why do kids insist on growing up so fast?!

  4. Love your WUW!! Brayden's little face is so precious in that picture. You have been one busy mama but so much fun!!

  5. Ahh facebook memories are seriously tugging at the heartstrings with me lately too girl! Those shrimp fajitas sound ah-mazing! Yum!

  6. How are you liking DWTS this season so far? I love it!

  7. OMG teeny Brayden!!! So, so cute!! I love that mint hoodie. Girl, between your fun finds on here and your deals page, you are killing my bank account, lol.

  8. The fajitas look so delicious, and how wonderful to only use one pan. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  9. Yum can't wait to try those shrimp fajitas!!

  10. I am working on Schitts Creek as well. Almost done with Season 1. We are loving the Americans as well. I want to make those shrimp fajitas. And that picture is adorable. Brayden was so tiny there!

  11. That picture of little Brayden!!!! Oh goodness, where does the time go? It really is crazy that he's going to be seven. I'm in denial over Jacob graduating Kindergarten in just a couple of months. I'm going to bawl my eyeballs out.

  12. How fun that you went to Medieval Times. I haven't been there forever and I bet my boys would enjoy it!

  13. I am eagerly awaiting warmer days so we can have grilled shrimp. It's the only way I like it.

  14. I love any and all sheet pan dinners!!! <3 I'm also loving your Facebook deals page, thanks for sharing!

    1. Seriously me too!! They make clean up so easy! And thanks for following along on my page!! xo

  15. I am so glad you are doing better after surgery! Yay for jeans again and I love that mint sweatshirt...have we already claimed our allegiance to all things blush and mint ;)! Your pictures of your baby boy makes me think of how fast time goes....I always refer back to the phrase, "The days may be long but they years go by so fast." I love these posts and getting to peak into everyone's lives! xoxo ERIN
