Linking up with Shay at Mix and Match Mama for her “What’s Up Wednesdays” monthly post.
What We’re Eating This Week:
I don’t know…I guess just random stuff we have in the fridge and pantry. I didn’t do a good job of meal planning this week.
What I’m Reminiscing About:
This is the time of year that I start reminiscing about having Emmalyn. Her birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks and I just cannot believe it’s been almost 7 years since she made me a mom.
What I’m Loving:
One of Ulta’s daily deal specials they had back in January was Clinique Cleansing Balm. I love it! My face feels better and cleaner when I use it. It’s become part of my nightly routine that I enjoy very much!
What We’ve Been Up To:
Stuck inside for a week during the snowstorm! It was crazy weather here last week! Almost negative 20 degree temperatures…ice and snow. Then today it was gorgeous with a high of about 72 degrees. That is Arkansas weather for you!
What I’m Dreading:
Nothing at the moment.
What I’m Excited About:
What I’m Watching/Reading:
Watching: A fun thing we have been doing before the girls’ bedtime is we all sit down and watch about 20 minutes of Fixer Upper together. Emmalyn lays her head on my lap and Claire sits next to me and is the remote control holder. It has started to be one of my favorite things I look forward to doing each day.
Since Lent started I have started to watch @katecbowler on Instagram. She does daily little Lent talks and she has such a sweet spirit about her and I have enjoyed her peaceful little chats.
I am slowly but surely working my way through The Crown. I have also started Firefly Lane (I think I’ve only made it through the 1st episode). I really enjoyed the book so I have high hopes for the show.
Come back in a few days and check out the books I read in February. You can check out the books I read in January here.
What I’m Listening To:
Nothing much. A few of my favorite podcasts here and there and occasionally some music from Spotify, but I’ve been enjoying having a little more silence in my life.
What I’m Wearing:
Well, last week I was wearing two layers of pants and multiple sweatshirts/coats to just be able to take Tucker outside and then yesterday and today I’m wearing short sleeve shirts and jeans. Crazy weather!
What I’m Doing This Weekend:
Nothing much. I have a lot of “I want to do” projects on my list, but I rarely have the motivation on the weekends to start them. I really just like spending time with my girls and trying to fit in some reading on the weekends.
What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month:
Emmalyn’s 7th birthday. Spring. My sister’s birthday.
What Else Is New:
Nothing really. Just getting back to the routine of things after a very busy January with work and the snowstorm last week.
Until next time…keep it simple!
