What's Up Wednesday {4.25.18}

Happy Hump Day!! I was already on edge this week because there is a lot going on and to top it off me and the kids got in a car accident yesterday on the way to Brayden's religious class (about a minute away from our house) We were minding our own business at a red light and a huge truck smashed right into us. We are all ok but definitely shook up. I think that was God's way to say slooooooooow down, and if so, I got it, I'll take a few breaths and relax just please don't let that happen again!

Anyway, it's the last Wednesday of the month which means it's time to link up with  Shay, Mel & Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday!!


What we're eating this week:

We had the kids favorite - pasta & meatballs Monday, takeout last night since I was in no mood to cook after the accident and the rest of the week will be the yummy chicken enchilada bake that's always a hit and some other easy stuff - we have a busy week so we need quick, easy meals!

What I'm reminiscing about:

Like always, when one of my kids were small. This time it's been Brayden. Memories from 7+ years ago are popping up on FB and make feel all the feels! I can't believe he will be 8 this year and is making his 1st Communion Saturday!

What I'm loving:

These new sandals I got the girls! I know they're not twins but I can't help but always want them to match!

What we've been up to:

Baseball, baseball, baseball!!! And dance, and school, and religious classes, you know, just the norm!

What I'm Dreading:

Dealing with insurance for this car accident, it's already starting off a bit shaky and I know it's just going to be a process until it's done. 

What I'm Working On:

As always, my deals group and my fashionista group - I love these groups so much!! Currently there's a giveaway going on in my fashion group, be sure to enter!!

What I'm Excited About:

Brayden making his 1st Communion Saturday and the girls' dance recital on Sunday! So much fun happening this weekend!!

What I'm Watching/Reading:

Cannot get enough of the Greatest Showman as I've already shared, I think it's safe to say it's my new favorite movie. The story, the music, the message, all of it is just so darn good

Also still watching Rosanne and LOVING it! And Splitting Up Together is so good too!!

What I'm Listening To:

Silence at this moment, but I'm hoping to get The Greatest Showman CD for Mother's Day 

What I'm Wearing:

I've been sharing so many outfit inspiration in my new group but have yet to be able to wear most of it out because our weather has been so whack! It's finally getting nicer out and I'm loving it!!!

I've been living in my MMM double hoods, I wear them all week long with nicer weather - it's so nice to not have to wear a coat!!

What I'm Doing This Weekend:

Oh this weekend is a busy one!! Friday night Brayden has baseball pictures, followed by a game, Saturday morning I'm taking the girls to dance rehearsal and dance pictures while Rick & Brayden have practice, then it's home to get our handsome son ready for his 1st Communion, and then it's the after party, and Sunday we have another baseball game. Phew, I'm already exhausted LOL

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:

More baseball games, I love that I'm finally able to watch a little bit of Brayden's games, rather than chase the girls around the entire time. I still have to watch them but they play pretty well with the other siblings so I can actually watch some of the game. There's some family parties and birthdays which will all be fun too

What Else is New:

I went to Kindergarten orientation this week for Ella and I couldn't help but feel a little sad.  I know it's still far away but I'm going to miss that little girl so much when she is in school all day!!
