What's Up Wednesday!

Wednesday, March 30, 2016 is the last Wednesday of the month...which means it is time for another What's Up Wednesday Post! I am joining MelShay and Sheaffer for their super fun link up party!

What we're eating this week...I have been planning super simple meals lately.  Mama is VERY pregnant and pretty darn tired by the time dinner rolls around- so we have been grilling turkey burgers and hot dogs on the grill, enjoying our weekly pizza night, eating crunchy shell, ground beef tacos every Tuesday (my girls get such a kick out of "theme" nights like Taco Tuesday) and we have definitely had our share of "sandwich nights!" 

What I'm reminiscing about...Aaron and I just celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary yesterday- so I have been thinking a lot about our wedding day! If you want- I wrote a post about some things that have helped us in our marriage these past 8 years- you can check it out here!
What I am loving....
Last week I mentioned that per the recommendation of Meg, from Meg O. on the Go, I bought a new blush by Milani. It is their "baked blush" and I got it in the shade of "Luminoso." It is SO pretty!! And under $10!! I ended up ordered mine off of Amazon (gotta love Prime!!) but Meg actually emailed me and told me that CVS always has Milani cosmetics in stock- so you could also check there for it!
What we've been up to...
We haven't been up to much- but I feel like we are always doing SOMETHING! HA! Does that make sense?!? We had a great weekend celebrating Easter and next week my girls are on Spring Break. We aren't going anywhere- but I have an activity planned for us every day! They are very excited for our "stay-cation!"

What I'm dreading...Nothing really! 

What I am working on...these next few weeks are going to be spent getting ready for baby #5's arrival! :) My husband is amazing and has pretty much gotten the baby's room ready- including clearing out the closet, moving furniture around and painting furniture. We are going to get some pictures up on the walls in the next couple of weeks and I need to get some hangers to hang up baby clothes- and then we should be done! I also need to get our guest room cleaned up and organized for my parents- since they will be coming for a few days after the baby is born to help out. Right now- our guest room is covered in Easter decorations and winter coats that I just washed- that need to be put away! And finally- I am SO close to being done with my oldest daughter's yearly photo book- I want to finish it and get it ordered! I would also like to get a jump start on my youngest daughter's book since her birthday is coming up in May!

What I'm excited about...Well...I am VERY excited for my girls to have a week off of school next week! I am getting my hair cut and highlighted next Saturday and SO looking forward to that. My roots are real special right now and I feel like my hair has just gotten so long and out of control! 
And finally- I am also excited to be teaming up with Erica and Leigh for our monthly link up – Pinspiration Wednesday!  Our next link up is Wednesday, April 6- which is next week! The topic is: "Favorite Spring Look or Outfit" -So start pinning some fresh, fun "looks" for spring/summer and plan on sharing them with us on April 6! :)
What I am watching/reading...I am not currently reading any novels- but I have been working through Ann Voskamp's "One Thousand Gifts Devotional" and I LOVE it. She has an absolutely beautiful style of writing and every time I finish a devotion I am left with such a renewed perspective on things! 

What I am listening to...Shawn Mendes' song, "Stitches" and One Direction's, "Perfect" are pretty much on permanent repeat at our house right girls are OBSESSED. And I am not going to lie- I LOVE the beat of "Stitches!" HA!
What I'm wearing... Oh how I wish I had some cute outfits to how show off...BUT. I don't. HA! At 36 weeks pregnant, I am wearing the same 4 maternity tunics and 3 pairs of maternity leggings and 1 pair of maternity jeans on permanent repeat. I am definitely getting to "that stage" where I am feeling quite "meh" every morning when I get dressed- but I just keep telling myself..only one more month!!
What I'm doing this weekend...The girls and I are going to up the hospital where I will deliver the baby and we are going to get a tour. I really don't need a tour- considering I have already delivered at this hospital AND that this isn't my first rodeo- HA! But- I have to sign some pre-registration papers- so I thought the girls would get a kick out of coming with me. They are SO excited to see where the baby is going to be born!!

What I'm looking forward to next month...HAVING A BABY!!!! AHHHH!! We are all bursting at the seams to meet the newest member of our family!

What else is new...Nothing really! Just enjoying being where we are RIGHT NOW :)

BONUS QUESTION: What is My Best Spring Cleaning Tip?
I don't know if I have a "tip" to share...but I do LOVE getting some major cleaning and organizing done! I am on a pretty regular rotation of cleaning- we mop and vacuum weekly, bathrooms are cleaned weekly, sheets are washed weekly and I am ALWAYS doing laundry.
As far as spring cleaning goes- I make a list of the "big" jobs I would like to get done and I set aside a weekend to do it. So I don't get overwhelmed- my goal is to get 2-3 jobs done in the morning and 2-3 more tasks done in the evening. I am always exhausted by the time Sunday evening rolls around- but a clean, fresh house is totally worth it!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!! I hope you have the BEST day!!


  1. What a great wedding picture! You guys are darling! When is your due date? There is nothing more exciting than a new baby! :)

  4. I can't believe you are in the home stretch with this pregnancy!!! Soo exciting! I can't wait for you to have this baby!!! =)

  5. Z Code System Review

    Online sports betting is expanding everyday and it's not hard to understand why. It combines two all-time favorite past-times - sports and taking risks. We can't all play professional sports. Most people can't take weekly trips to Vegas. But thanks to online sports betting you can have the thrill of watching sports and winning money at the same time. All in the privacy of your own home! It doesn't get much better than that.

  6. You seriously always find the best products/books you name it!! And I cannot believe only one more month!! Though I am sure you can believe it!! I just cannot wait to meet this new baby!! And for you to not have to experience the "special pains" of pregnancy even though it's all worth it! How I love you!


I love hearing from you! Let's keep it nice though...ain't nobody got time for anything else!
