What's Up Wednesday {9.27.17}

Happy Wednesday friends! I can't believe we are in the last week of September, seriously, where the heck did the last month go!?

I'm linking up today with Shay, Mel & Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday!

What we're eating this week:

On the menu is one of our favorites - sheet pan shrimp fajitas! This the easiest recipe ever! I always make the kids cheese quesadillas when we have this though because they're just not down with shrimp yet

One Sheet Pan Shrimp Fajitas - tender juicy shrimp with roasted bell pepper and…

I have some butternut squash just sitting here and I need to put it to use - I'm going to try this recipe and I hope it's good!

Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

What I'm reminscing about:

Since our Disney trip is coming up very soon I keep thinking back to the last trip. It was the absolute best time and I can't help but wonder if this time will be the same or not? Avery was only 9 months last time and she pretty much slept the entire trip or just sat quietly in the stroller or the carrier - this trip will be a whole other story with her since she doesn't love to just sit anymore LOL

What I'm loving:

These coffee nut M & M's! Seriously, I ate the whole bag within days and I have plans to get more! so so good!!

What we've been up to:

School, school & more school! Since the girls are only 1 school grade apart, they are both in preschool right now and I chose to do separate days so that way I could get one on one time with each but really, it's crazy how much driving I'm doing everyday! I know this isn't even bad so I won't complain, but really that's what I've been up to - driving. LOL

What I'm dreading:

Flying! Ugh I'm the worst flyer and I clearly have to put on my big girl pants for the kids' sake but inside I'll be terrifying. It won't be wrong to start drinking on our 6am flight, right?! :)

What I'm working on:

Well I had a mishap happen to my FB group that has been a little setback - basically I became target to some trolling/spamming so right now I have some restrictions.  I can't even begin to tell you how irritating it has been. Thankfully my hubby has been helping me out but it's just not the same. I just hope once this mess is behind me, I can work on getting the group morale back! It's such a fun group and I have some awesome ladies in there, I don't want to lose that! If you aren't a troll/spammer, I'd love for you to join my group here!

What I'm excited about:

What I'm watching/reading:

Ahhh who else watched This is Us last night?!?! Looooooove that show!

Also watching Dancing with the Stars (I've been loyal for all 20 something seasons!) Me and the hubby just finished the mini series on Scott Peterson and it was an interesting watch

What I'm listening to:

Silence, ahhhhhh

What I'm wearing:

We just took our family pics and I was so excited to wear my MMM floral tee!!

I've been loving snuggling up on the couch with my new blardigan - this thing is like butter, seriously! So glad I scooped it up during the Anniversary sale!

What I'm doing this weekend:

We have dance lessons and a baseball game and I think that's pretty much it! Keeping it low key since last weekend was alot!

What I'm looking forward to next month:

Besides Disney, I'm super excited for all the fun things October will bring - the pumpkin patch, class parties, trick or treating, some fun events through our town - it's going to a great month!

What else is new:

The girls have started dance lessons and they are the cutest! They go Saturday morning to back to back classes so that's how I've been spending my Saturday mornings, meanwhile Rick & Brayden are always at a game - kind of stinks they are at the same time! Ella is also in gymnastics and next month Brayden will start basketball - we are in the busy season that's for sure :)


Duuuuuuh, This is Us!!


  1. SOOO exciting about Disney!!! I cannot wait until our next trip there =) Everytime we go when we get back I say "That was the best trip ever" and the next time we go I always say the same thing. So I think you guys will have an amazing time!!!

  2. Eek, Disney here you come! So exciting. I love that yellow floral tee and I have been a loyal fan of Dancing with the stars is well. I am loving this season and how good was this is us last night? The house oh my goodness house!

  3. I feel you on the driving...I am trying to savor this moment with only one kid in sports because next month both will have sports and that is always kind of crazy. I love that yellow tee. I also love that picture of you and your family. Disney is going to be a blast! Happy Wednesday!

  4. "If you aren't a troll/spammer, I'd love for you to join my group here!" - BAHAHAHA. You crack me up! That sucks that you've had such a rough setback. Why do bad people in the world always have to ruin good things for everybody else?!

    And girrrrl, I was BAWLING at the end of This is Us last night. Bawling.

  5. Last year with Vera in preschool and Solon in school and after school activities, I seriously felt like all I did was drive. It's when I got into podcasts since I was in my car so much! HA! I am so sad about the trolls that ruined your fb account, that's SO annoying :(! Why do they do that? I don't get it. EEKS Disney soon, can't wait to hear all about it! xoxo ERIN

  6. Yay for Disney and This Is Us! Sorry about the spammer on your fb group!

  7. I am so excited for you guys and your Disney trip! Haha drinking when flying no matter the time is always acceptable. I loved that This Is Us is back on and I was so shocked by the ending last night. I have to know what happened!! Beautifully Candid

  8. Internet trolls are the worst!! I'm so sorry you've been dealing with that. It gets stressful I know! I just joined your group though! And LOVE your family pics! We are taking ours Saturday and I'm doing a navy/yellow theme too so I'm using your pic for inspiration!
