What We’re Doing Wednesday

Just a little post on some recent thoughts and happenings. Excited to link up with some of my favorite blogs today!

What We Are Eating This Week: 

I had great plans to make a delicious-sounding Roasted Red Pepper, Mozzarella, & Basil Stuffed Chicken with Asparagus last night, but my tiniest Sugar Muffin had a reaction to some baby food, so we spent the evening cuddling her and ordering pizza. #RealLife However, you can see Monday’s Meal Planning post here with lots of yummy recipes (https://abbeydraa.wordpress.com/2015/07/27/meal-plan-day-3/). And here’s a super easy recipe for Nutella Popsicles too… you’re welcome.  (https://abbeydraa.wordpress.com/2015/06/25/nutella-popsicles/)

HATE when my kids don't feel well. :(

What I’m Reminiscing About:

This little Sweetheart turned 9 months old this week, and I’m feeling alllllll the feelings. Where does the time go???

I don't know how we lived life before she joined our little family.
She walked off with the rest of my heart.

What I’m Loving:

This stainless-steel little ring that I had engraved with all my favorite people’s letters. I found the boutique shop, My Little Origems, on Jane.com and they were selling stackable engraveable stainless steel rings for $10… I ordered a size big enough to wear as a thumb ring, and love having all my favorite people at my fingertips (although two of them are all the time anyway, haha).

What I’m Working On:

I have a few small, second-hand furniture pieces that I’ve collected over the last several months that are hanging out in the garage… They all need some DIY love, and my husband is wanting his garage back, haha. Also, I’m working with this little Darling on getting more comfortable with solid foods.

more peas, please!

What I’m Excited About:

Our two upcoming beach trips!!! We have a little beach trip planned with each side of our families… we missed going to the beach last year because I was 8 months pregnant, so I. Am. Pumped.

What I’m Watching/Reading:

Definitely on a Gilmore Girl kick (let’s be honest… I’m always on a Gilmore Girl kick), and I’m also 1.5 episodes behind on the Bachelorette… I knowwwww, I missed the finale! Hoping to get caught up by tomorrow. #SortaTeamShawn #ButNotReallyTeamAnybody

I love reading political thrillers when I have time to read. Love, love, love anything by Joel Rosenberg.

What I’m Listening To:

A CD that has worship music sung by Bob & Larry from Veggie Tales because I have two kids under 3, and then anything Jesus Culture/IHOP/Bethel when I have the chance. And, I’m from Georgia, so country music doesn’t make me mad either. 😉

What I’m Wearing:

A whole lot of this.

aaaaand, mix-matched socks for the win.

What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month:

Did I mention BEACH TRIP earlier?
