What's Up Wednesday

Today I'm linking up with these lovely ladies for What's Up Wednesday

1. What We're Eating this Week
We're going on vacation in a few weeks and when we get back we're jumping into a major kitchen renovation/repair project so all our meals are themed around cleaning out our pantry and freezer. Beyond staple items, no new food is coming into our house until after vacation & project!

2. What I'm reminiscing about
My google account on my phone popped up reminding me of what I was doing this week 2 and three years ago.

Last year on Memorial Day weekend with Ada in the pool

and two years ago
look how tiny Cora was! She still loves cuddling with Daddy to sleep.

3. What I'm loving
In January I was stocking up on lotions and such from Bath and Body Works during their simi-annual sale and I picked this one up.

I liked it, figured it would be a gift for someone but I recently pulled it out and I looove it! It just makes me so happy to put on lotion each day (which I'm not generally great at moisturizing).

4. What we've been up to
Packing, packing and packing! We're also doing some big cleaning and house purging since we're basically moving out to do our repair projects.

The other day I posted this pic on instagram. It was storming and I couldn't sleep so I gathered several things into the suit case. In the following days, Cora (or Ada, I'm honestly not sure it wasn't her...) got my phone and sent the picture to so many people in my facebook messenger. So many people were confused and I keep finding new people the picture went to! Thanks kids...

5. What I'm dreading
I really don't have anything coming up that I'm not pretty pleased about. I even flipped through the calendar to find something to dread... I guess this is a good thing!

6. What I'm working on
Schedules. We're going to work on our routines for the fall when we officially start home school for Cora over the summer to hopefully find something that works for us.

7. What I'm excited about
Our vacation!! I can't wait! We will be visiting upstate New York and then joining my family in Washington D.C.

8. What I'm watching/reading
I just finished reading (well, it was on Audible) Crazy Rich Asians and loved it! The sequel, China Rich Girlfriend is on the top of my to-read list for vacation! I can't wait to get back from vacation and review the books I have been reading!

I have a new Audible credit, any recommendations? I will likely listen to it on vacation while the kids are screaming in the back seat...

9. What I'm listening to
I've recently been bitten by the podcast bug! My favorites right now are Sorta Awesome and The Happy Hour! Earlier this month I also binge listened to S-Town. It was amazing! (strong language and intense themes heads up). I have found a few new podcasts that I'll listen to this summer - I'm always open to recommendations!

10. What I'm wearing
I've been doing some shopping in preparation for vacation & have so many new fun outfits!

My favorite new shirt is from my Nadine West Shipment

11. What I'm doing this weekend
John will be umpiring a big baseball tournament in town so I will be solo-parenting. On Friday I'm going to Plano to see their new birth center! Saturday I'm co-hosting a sweet friends baby shower, I can't wait to help bless her and their bundle of joy! Sunday we don't have anything scheduled but church, but I will hopefully be a house cleaning machine.

12. What I'm looking forward to next month
Next month is going to be *very* busy for me work wise. Honestly, I'm going to get back from vacation, buckle down and get through the month. We have some fun things planned with the girls for my days off and I'm looking forward to finding a new routine and normal for us as we enter the fall!

13. What else is new
Not much! We're just working to maintain the status quo around here and that's a-okay in my book!
