What’s Up Wednesday

 I’m joining MelShay, and Sheaffer for their What’s Up Wednesday link-up!

What we’re eating this week:

Monday-Nixon had a baseball game right in the middle of dinner time so we grabbed something after his game.

Tuesday-Baked fish and veggies for us.  Fish and macaroni and cheese for the kiddos.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Wednesday-Chicken Caesar Rice Bowls are one of our favorite weeknight meals.

Thursday-Steak and Wedge Burgers with sweet potato fries.

Friday-Bowen has a tee-ball game and then we’re dining out with one of our favorite couples.

What I’m Reminiscing About:

On May 9th, 2017, we boarded a flight headed to China to pick up our girl.  I cannot believe in just a few weeks we’ll be celebrating the one year anniversary of that special day.  It’s been quite a year and we’re still in awe of what a big God we serve.

If you missed any of my China recaps, you can see them here…

What I’m Loving:

This picture is all kinds of blurry, BUT I’m loving a date night snuck in between kids’ sports and activities.  Last Thursday our calendar was BLANK!  EEK!  So I grabbed a babysitter and Tab and I enjoyed a nice, kid-free dinner complete with DESSERT!

What We’ve Been Up To:

We took some new family pictures with Narci to use with my new blog design.  {Yes, it’s FINALLY happening!}

On Friday, these two enjoyed the best lazy morning with a movie in my bed.

We’ve been watching Bowen play tee-ball.

Ebby Lee and I snuck out of the house for a little Starbucks date.

And Britty and I have been loving on our friends and their new baby, Violet.  She is absolutely precious and I’m pretty sure Britt’s face sums up how we were both feeling when we met her.

What I’m Dreading:

I don’t think I’m dreading anything at the moment.  ๐Ÿ™‚

What I’m Working On:

All kinds of Disney Land and Sea Vacations for families like YOU!  If you’ve been thinking of taking a Disney World vacation or maybe a Disney Cruise or possibly even combining them, then please shoot us an e-mail.  We’d love to help!  
We’re also sending new clients to Mexico and cruises all over the world.

Shay and I have a big promotion going for anyone booking a trip during the month of May.  Everyone who books a trip during May will be entered to win a $500 Visa gift card!  Yes, we’ll throw all the names in a big bowl and draw out one lucky winner who will receive a $500 gift card!  Now is the time to book!

What I’m Excited About:


What I’m watching/reading:

Right now, this has totally captured my attention.  I’ll keep you posted on what I think about the ending.  ๐Ÿ™‚

What I’m Listening To:

Our love of The Greatest Showman soundtrack is still going strong.  Just yesterday on the drive back from Dallas, it appeared like Britt was fast asleep.  Then one of the songs on this soundtrack came on and she POPPED her head up like she’d been awake the whole time.  The music gets the Slaughters going.  ๐Ÿ™‚

What I’m Wearing:

I’ve been dressing up for church each week, but other than that…lately I’ve been in workout gear ALL THE TIME!  {My Easter dress is now 40% off!}  If you’re on the hunt for some new dresses, you can see my other dress recommendations in this post.

What I’m Doing This Weekend:

This weekend Bowen has a tee-ball game and Patrick {pictured above holding him} and Mackenzie {our oldest babysitter and part of the family} are coming to watch.  I might as well have invited Santa Claus himself to watch Bowen play.  He’s pretty pumped!  #andsoarewe

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month:

Our neighborhood is always a good time over Memorial Day weekend.  I’m looking forward to the outdoor parties, the fireworks, the pool time, and possibly this particular night out without a baby in tow.  ๐Ÿ™‚  ha!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  XO
