What's Up Wednesday: March 2017

Happy Wednesday, y'all! Today I'm linking up with Mel, Sheaffer and Shay for "What's Up Wednesday." 

To answer the following questions: 

{1} What We're Eating This Week 
Easy, peasy meals have been the name of my game recently: this oven-fried chicken; steaks with mashed white beans and asparagus; tilapia tacos; and grilled chicken with a side of Greek pasta salad. Yum! 

{2} What I'm Reminiscing About 
As we near Knox's first birthday {seriously, how?!} I'm just over here reminiscing about sweet newborn baby Knox. I can't believe he's going to be one in about two months. Oh, be still my heart!

{3} What I'm Loving 

This candle from Bath & Body Works. Y'all, it smells AMAZING. 

This one from Target -- also a favorite of mine! 

And this dress from Nordstrom -- I want it, I want it! 

Oh, and these sweet Salt Water Sandals I ordered from the boys FROM AMAZON!!! {If you're Southern and you know it clap your hands...} 

My friend Gentel told me about this disinfecting spray and I've been going all over my house disinfecting ALL THE THINGS. 

{4} What We've Been Up To
We have been enjoying the beautiful spring weather lately by spending as much time outdoors as humanly possible: walks, park dates, picnics -- you name it! Other than that, Walker has had school and soccer, we've had Bible Study, and I've just been doing my typical thing of errands, working out, making lunches, wiping bottoms and repeat! ;) I got to do something fun on Monday and do some voiceover work for a project my church is doing, so that was something fun and different. :)

{5} What I'm Dreading
Quite honestly, I don't think I'm dreading too much at the moment! This is my favorite time of the year and it's hard to find something to really "dread," for me anyway, right now! 

{6} What I'm Excited About 

My 30th birthday is next Friday, and we're heading to Charleston to celebrate! I'm so thrilled to see Charleston for the first time and spend some one-on-one time with Brandon. 

{7} What I'm Watching/Reading 
We're ending all of my favorite shows {I'm looking at you, "This is Us" and "The Bachelor!"}, but we're loving watching "Designated Survivor," "The Arrangement," our old people shows of "Dateline" and "48 Hours," and of course, "Real Housewives!" 

I recently renewed my library card and picked up this book; I love Lauren Weisberger! 

{8} What I'm Listening To 
I'm about to let y'all in on my dorkiness, but I'm loving the Margaritaville station on my Sirius XM radio! Ha! Anything and everything Jimmy Buffett-related I just love this time of the year when it's sunny and warm outside; it immediately transports me to the beach. 

{9} What I'm Wearing 
The weather here in North Texas has been downright gorgeous lately {if you haven't caught on with my 500 references in this post alone}! I wish it could stay like this year-round. That said, if I'm not in my typical mom uniform of yoga pants {these are my favorite} and workout tops {also my favorite}, then I'm rocking my J.Crew elastic waistband shorts. Yep, you heard me: elastic waistband. LOVE them! They're so versatile, comfortable and cute. 

{10} What I'm Doing This Weekend
We have a full weekend ahead! My parents are coming up to celebrate my birthday a week early; Walker has soccer; we're taking the boys to the local Thomas the Train event; and of course, the usual weekend plans: church, cleaning up around the house and errands.

{11} What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month 
Celebrating Easter {Knox's first!} and of course, celebrating my 30th birthday! Easter is one of my favorite holidays and I'm just so thankful to celebrate the true meaning of Easter. 

Just for grins, here are some photos from Easter past: 

2016 {and a very pregnant me!}: 



{12} What Else is New
Nothing much is new around here! We're chugging along with about two full months left of Walker's school and our Bible Study program before summer break, and we're most definitely looking forward to that!

  2. Love me some sun sans! I think we own every size in every color by now haha. Those jcrew shorts.. I'm now going to have to get some. But the 5" ones haha.
