What's Up Wednesday V5

Happy Hump Day, friends! How is it the end of March already? Has this month flown by for you, too? I can't believe in 2 short months school will be over and we will have days free to do whatever we want. For the first time in a long time I am eager for Summer to arrive. Let's catch up with this month's "What's Up Wednesday" post.


What we're eating this week...

Breakfast is on our weekly rotation because it's high in protein and low in WW points. I realize that James has to suffer some but as he said, he isn't going hungry. Not only does a plate of eggs, sausage and waffles fill me up but it is the easiest dinner to make. From start to finish it takes a total of 15 minutes.

What I'm reminiscing about... 

My new ShadowSense eye makeup. I've been a fan of LipSense for a while and just recently tired their ShadowSense and have been obsessed with doing my eye make-up ever since. The color stays in place and lasts all day long.

What I'm loving...

That our days are less and less chaotic lately. I don't know how it happened but we are spending more time at home during the week. I've been able to stay on top of housework, blogging and Connor and I have had more one and one. It's been a really good few weeks for him and I.

What we've been up to...

I feel like we haven't done a lot during the week, using our energy to make the most of our weekends as a trio. Connor and I have been hanging out at home more, where I've been on a cleaning spree. I am loving all the clean space in our home. Adios clutter! Tidy spaces give me joy.

What I'm dreading...

It's done nothing but rain, rain, rain so if this is what Spring is going to be like then can we just skip and go straight to Summer? You'll never hear me say that again but I feel like we are in a constant state of wet because we have been rained on day after day.

What I'm working on...

Keeping the house clean. Because we have been home more we tend to leave messes here and there and it really aggravates me so I tend to pick-up multiple times a day. I think better in a clean space and I love being able to look around and see everything in it's place. I cleaned out the entryway closet, adding a shelf for Connor's shoes long with a place for our library books.

What I'm excited about...

Going on vacation in May with just James. This will be the 2nd time we've left Connor at home (with a family member of course) and went on a trip. We visit Cabo in May 2015. I know leaving your child at home and going out of town isn't for everyone but man, I love the one on one time with my guy.

What I'm watching/reading...

I am halfway through The Hypnotist's Love Story by Liane Moriarty. It's an okay book. I don't know what's going to happen with the story but as of page 211 I am on the fence about finishing it. I'm not one to quit on a book so I know I'll work through the second half but something good better happen soon because I'm getting bored.

What I'm listening to...

The Trolls Soundtrack on repeat in the car, at home, while working out. I love the songs, I love the movie, I love that Connor sings along. Do yourself a favor and listen to it; you'll be thanking me. I also have been creating playlists in Spotify and I'm slightly addicted. I think I may have 8 so far and I just started last week.

What I'm wearing...

Lots of workout clothes even though I don't always get a workout in. If it's not workout clothes, it's leggings, a t-shirt and zip-up. They are just comfortable and easy to lounge in or run errands in. Yes I could wear something else, maybe "real" clothes but I have to admit, that's a lot of work for just running to the grocery and dropping/picking Connor up from school or hanging out at a play date.

What we're doing this weekend...

This weekend is the one weekend in April we don't have plans. I'm not sure what we will get into but I know Sunday will be church. If it's dry and warm enough we are going to go see Boss Baby at the drive-in, which opens for the season on Friday. Side note: we see far too many kid movies in the theaters these days.

What I'm looking forward to next month...

April can be pretty tricky here weather wise so I am looking forward to it being a bit warmer and maybe even dry so we can get outdoors more. Easter is right around the corner and that brings with it the chance to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Connor starts swim lesson again and I am eager to see what skills he retain and what others we will be working on.

What else is new...

James has to travel in April for the first time in nearly 2 months so solo parenting is back and well... may the best guy win and by guy I mean me! Connor is 6 weeks away from wrapping up 4YO Preschool and it's hard to believe we have one Summer left before pre-K. Cue the tears! And as for me I'm really focusing on Weight Watchers and hope to start really working out more to see even more of a change on the scale, with my body and in my clothes. I am looking forward to tackling our Spring bucket list now that it's finally Spring.
