What's Up Wednesday {1.31.18}

Happy Last Day of the month friends! Although I'm typing this late Tuesday night after being sick to my stomach all day with the stomach bug. Really hoping by the time this is live I'm all good!

Anyway, the last Wednesday of the month means it's time for What's Up Wednesday and I'm linking up with Shay, Mel & Sheaffer!

What we're eating this week:

We had brats Monday night and last night I'm not even sure what Rick pulled together since I was just laying down trying to get better. The rest of the week is super easy meals like pasta/meatballs, chicken spaghetti and then Pizza Friday.

Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti.

What I'm reminiscing about:

Well thanks to Timehop, it keeps showing me my babies when they were babies!! This gem popped up this week and I swear my ovaries cried a little.

And then this one of the girls, this was 3 years ago!! My gosh time sure does fly

What I'm Loving:

My new glasses!! They're Warby Parkers and I love them! I don't need them all the time but they're so cute I may wear them more than usual

What We've Been Up To:

Gosh, we did ALOT last weekend, enough to keep me happy for another couple weekends at least! We saw Disney on Ice, saw Le Miserab, and went out to a girls birthday lunch.

We also did SO MUCH sledding this month and that was awesome because last year I'm not even sure we went once.

What I'm Dreading:

Nothing, that's a good thing, right?

What I'm Working On:

Planning Brayden's class Valentine's party! I live for this stuff, it's so much fun for me! I'm meeting with the other Moms Thursday to go over our plan but I saw this Cupid Arrow Game and doesn't it look like so fun?!

Cupid's arrow game. Need different colored qtips and straws (the fat, milkshake kind)

What I'm Excited About:

Super Bowl Sunday which is always a fun time just because I LOVE to eat all the food. I'm totally rooting for the Eagles because I'm sick of seeing the Patriots #yesisaidit #notsorry

Also super excited for Valentine's Day, class parties, date night and lots of birthday parties! It's going to be a fun February

What I'm Watching/Reading:

Watching: How to Get Away With Murder, Mom, The Bachelor and lots of crime shows on ID.

Who else loves Arie?! I know lots of people think he's fake but I truly do not. I love him and I'm not reading any spoilers and really hoping this works out for him

I FINALLY finished The Husband's Secret! It was really good but I'm still not sure how I feel about the end. Now I'm starting Winter Solstice

What I'm Listening to:

We have been jamming the songs from The Greatest Showman every morning at breakfast! The music is so so good!!


What I'm Wearing:

The temps are all over the place here, but right now it is FREEZING! Sticking with lots of layers.

This was a favorite outfit from the weekend - my new hoodie and my new shoes!

What I'm Doing This Weekend:

We are keeping it super low key - Saturday the girls have dance class, Brayden has a basketball game and Sunday is Super Bowl!

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:

Already mentioned all that above :)

What Else is New:

It's time to register Ella for Kindgarten for Fall and my Mama heart is not ready!! How are we already here?!

Bonus: Favorite Soup Recipe:

That's easy, my baked potato cauliflower soup!! I've been eating it non stop lately, it's just so good!!


Happy Wednesday!!

  1. I'm so sorry you were sick! I hope you're feeling better now!
    That soup recipe looks delicious. I could eat soup and salad for dinner every night, but my husband doesn't agree!
    I truly can't believe it's time for Kindergarten. It's looking like Liam will probably be going this year and repeat it if necessary. Still, though...I want to cry just thinking about my baby going to REAL school!

  2. I actually almost made your cauliflower soup this week, but I think I'll save it for next week! It looks delicious though! The new glasses look great on you!

  3. I hope you're feeling better! Another blogger I read finished / started the exact same books as you!

  4. Oh man, I hope you are feeling better friend. Life is just no fun when mom is sick and stomach bugs are just the worst. LOVE those new glasses. I really need to pick up something similar to those. Mine are REALLY outdated.

  5. Kindergarten? NO! Oh my goodness! I sure hope you feel better soon on he flu front, it's been a nasty winter for it all! xoxo ERIN

  6. Oh no! I hope you feel a million times better today! Our Reminiscing is pretty much the same! Timehop is so dang bittersweet. That picture…oh my word! So precious. You’re new glasses look great on you! Sounds like you guys have had loads of fun lately. That snow! I can’t even fathom having that here in Texas. Sometimes I wish we’d have a huge snowstorm, but then I am sure I would be over it pretty quick. I need that adorable hoodie.

  7. The Bachelor is my addiction - liking this season thus far but have no idea who I'm leaning towards! I hope you're totally over the bug - ugh no fun! Cheers to a better rest of the week!

  8. That Cauliflower Baked Potato Soup looks delicious!

  9. Oh no! I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. I hope it goes away soon and you are feeling better. That Valendtine's Day pic is sooo adorable! You are looking great in your glasses! Sierra~Beautifully Candid

  10. I hope you're feeling better soon! You'll love Winter Solstice...I thought it was such a good wrap-up to the series! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  11. Oh no, that sucks that you ended up getting the bug. I can't believe that you actually typed a blog post after that! I would have been skipping in favor of laying in the bed some more! haha. I HATE the stomach virus.

  12. Tried the soup this week and it is ON POINT! We will definitely make it again!
