What's Up Wednesday | 4/26/17

Today I'm linking up with MelShay and Sheaffer for their What's Up Wednesday series!

What we're eating this week:
I made tortellini with spinach in a creamy tomato sauce that was super easy and yummy last night.

Sushi tonight

Flat bread pizza tomorrow night.

What I'm reminiscing about:
This little cutie.

What I'm Loving:
This time of year when the weather starts to warm up I get so excited about food, in particular:
Pasta Salads
Hamburgers and Hot dogs on the grill
Pretty much anything that screams cookout and summer!

What we've been up to:
It's been raining for the past couple of days here so I've had to get creative with the indoor activities.

Indoor picnics
Hide and seek
Heading to the movies (we went to see Smurfs on Sunday afternoon, it was cute)

What I'm dreading:
I don't think I'm dreading anything right now.

What I'm working on:
I've been feeling overwhelmed by the amount of stuff we have so I'm working on going through everything and getting rid of all of the STUFF!!

I'm doing it a little at a time but I'm starting with my clothes and then moving on to closets.

What I'm excited about:
Going to Lowe's and getting some plants for the yard and around the house.
This time of year everyone's yard's look so nice and fresh and our yard does not because we've been busy and not able to get out and cut the grass.  So I'm excited about getting to clean everything up and have it looking nice and ready for summer!

What I'm watching/Reading:
Southern Charm
The Discovery on Netflix
Fortitude on Prime

Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult

What I'm listening to:
I listen to books during my commute so I'm currently listening to Fall of Giants by Ken Follett
At night we listen to trolls and sing soundtrack during bath time 😃

What I'm wearing:
I got this UGG robe and it's pretty amazing.

What I'm doing this weekend:
Yard work
Shopping for Teacher Appreciation Week next week

What I'm looking forward to next month:
The pollen going away so we can spend more time outside and gear up for Summer!

What else is new:
Not a whole lot.  Look for a book review roundup and some teacher appreciation inspiration next week on the blog!

Bonus question this month: What is your favorite spring/summer shoe?
I love my Tom Wedges, they're great for work and for the weekends!

Friday Favorites | Catch Up Post

Happy Friday, friends!

I'm linking up with these amazing bloggers for some Friday Favorites. Erika, Narci and Andrea.

It's been a while and that's because March and April are always crazy times in my house, we are in full on Birthday mode during these months and then throw in Easter and it's out of control.

I'll catch you up on what we've been up to (that just happen to be my favorites as well).
This guy had a birthday at the end of March and we celebrated with a delicious dinner and the yummiest Neiman Marcus bars!

Next we celebrated my sweet mamas birthday that fell in early April and my parents are adding on to their house so there were some diggers in the yard and Grandpa let little man in for a ride. #yearmade

 A little strawberry shortcake with store bought angel food cake.

 Blooming Rosemary, so pretty.

Then this one turned 4, I mean how is he 4 already?!?!?  
He was just born! #holdme
These past 4 years have been a blur and the best in my life.  
I just wish time would slow down so I can savor it more. 

So Mr. Man turned 4 and we celebrated with a dinosaur bowling party that was a hit!  

We had the party the day before his birthday so on his actual birthday we spent the day opening presents, jumping in his bouncy castle and just enjoying the beautiful day!

 4 year old on a mission!

 Birthday kisses from Daddy

 Birthday family selfie

Showing off some of his presents.

And then it was time for some Easter Egg hunts and Peter Cottontail coming to town.  I can't believe I didn't take a picture of his Easter basket but we were rushing around getting ready for Church and I completely forgot. Oh well.  

A non-party favorite is this book!  I'm going to do a proper book review next week of what I've been reading, but this book gets a favorite mention because it's definitely an amazing read!  It's a page turner ya'll and by far my favorite book of 2017!  

Ann-Taylor Loft is another recent favorite.  I haven't shopped there in years but they had a 40% off everything event right before Easter and I was in need a new Easter dress so stopped by there and found 2 gems that went home with me.  Love them both!

And that's it for now.  
Weekend plans are another birthday party and lots of running around to do.
Happy Weekend ya'lll!
