Happy Hump Day, y’all! May your toddler’s attitude be sweet, your baby’s teeth not hurt, and your coffee be strong! Today, I’m linking up with a few of my favorite blogs to share what we’re up to this week.
What We’re Eating This Week:
I’m trying to watch what I eat, so lots of soup & smoothies for me this week. Which… if you’re looking for a good soup recipe… here’s one for a delicious crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup. 😉
What I’m Reminiscing About This Week:
The sixth anniversary of when our courtship started was this week… so I’ve been thinking about when this cute boy asked me to be his girlfriend and I jumped up to hug him with a resounding “oh my goodness, YES!” and ended up spilling my entire vanilla latte in my lap. Really glad my pants dried quickly, since he had arranged to have a photographer waiting outside to document our special day. #SeriouslySpilledTheWholeThingInMyLap
What I’m Loving This Week:
“You weady, sissy? Don’t be ‘fraid… I’ll go with you. One, two, free!”
What We’ve Been Up To This Week:
A sweet playdate, some time at the park, lots of laundry, a little snow, plenty of snuggles, and countless Dr. Suess books (the latter is usually done in green pajamas and pink wellies… because, duh.)
What I’ve Been Dreading This Week:
Cleaning out our garage.
What I’m Working On This Week:
Cleaning out our garage and also deep-cleaning our closet. If y’all haven’t heard from me by Sunday, send in the calvary.
What I’m Excited About This Week:
THAT HUNKY BROTHER OF MINE PROPOSED AND I’M GAINING A SISTER! You guys… i was there. and it was the most beautiful moment i’ve ever witnessed outside of my own engagement/wedding and my children being born.
What I’m Watching/Reading This Week:
If y’all haven’t checked out Madame Secretary on Netflix… stop reading this post, and go do it now. My husband and I checked it out last week, and have been binge-watching it ever since. We are several episodes in, and so far, it has been refreshingly clean and actually, almost wholesome. Definitely a good show, if you like political thrillers.
As far as what I’m reading… “The Gettysburg Address & Other Writings of Abraham Lincoln”. It was an $8 find at Barnes & Noble a couple weeks ago (now it’s only $3 online!), and although the historical language requires my full attention, I’m really enjoying reading up on what Lincoln had to say. He was a powerful communicator.
What I’m Listening To This Week:
Same as always… a little Bethel Music, some Wheels On The Bus, a little Jesus Culture, and some John Jacob Jingleheimer Schimdt. #MomLife
What I’m Wearing This Week:
All day, every day. Sorry not sorry.
What I’m Doing This Weekend:
Normally, our weekends are pretty low-key and involve blueberry waffles and visiting some nearby family. However, this weekend we are meeting up with a group of friends that we haven’t seen in ages… several haven’t even met our children yet… excited to catch-up with everyone and i miiiiight even change out of my 3-day-old yoga pants for the occasion. Might.
What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month:
Hopefully, a little time with this stud all to myself. #ValentinesDay
Bonus Question – What Is My Favorite Valentine Treat:
I’m a sucker for baking, crafting, decorating for different holidays… Here’s a little Valentine’s Day craft/treat that my toddler and I made for her Daddy and grandparents a couple years ago. So easy, simple, and cheap!
