What’s Up Wednesday-2.24.21

I’m linking up today with Sheaffer and Shay for What’s Up Wednesday.  

What We’re Eating This Week…
Monday-We had chicken lettuce wraps with Trader Joe’s cauliflower fried rice for us and the real delicious fried rice for the kids.

The Rest of the Week-If you saw my post yesterday, I left for Walt Disney World so Shay and I will be dining on Disney World fare, but I left my people well taken care of with meatballs, salmon, and frozen pizzas.

What I’m Reminiscing About…

I’ve been thinking about our last trip to Walt Disney World when we took Bowen and Ashby 

What I’m Loving…
Super random thing to be loving but if you’re a broccoli fan and looking for a tasty breakfast, you should check these out.  They’re little broccoli cheese egg bites I found at my local grocery store.  Their house brand, Signature Select, makes them.  I tried them on a whim and found myself wishing I’d grab more boxes while were snowed in.  I added Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning and delish!

What We’ve Been Up To…
This week is looking a whole lot like this…

This…except minus the two kids.  😉


And probably some of this.  🙂

What I’m Dreading…
Nothing at the moment.

What I’m Working On…

Who says work shouldn’t be fun?  NOT ME!   Shay and I are traveling with a list of things we’re checking out specifically for clients.  You better believe we’ll be experiencing the Disney magic as well, but some work is happening too!  I promise!  Again if you’d like help planning your Walt Disney World vacation, please check out our website and e-mail us directly from our site to learn more!

What I’m Excited About…
Britt and I have been working through some new activities by recommendations from her speech therapist and after a few weeks I’m gonna share them all with you!  So far something SUPER simple has produced the biggest changes-looking forward to sharing all my thoughts!

What I’m Watching/Reading…
Many have suggested this show, Outlander, for Tab and I to watch.  We started last week during the snow and judging by your comments we should keep it up.  Definitely rated R!

I hadn’t read a fiction book in forever but before we left for WDW I charged up my Kindle for the flight and downloaded The Wife Upstairs.  Sounds thrilling-just like I like them!

What I’m Listening To…
This morning as everyone was coming downstairs, eating breakfast, getting ready I had Prince playing on the Alexa.  Some came down the stairs loving it and others were rolling their eyes.

What I’m Wearing…

After over a week of leggings and pajamas all day, I’m having to go back to pre-snow to find some pictures for you.  I’d been seeing buttoned-up cardigans worn as sweaters all over the place and decided to try for myself.  Love the way it turned out! My sweater is sold out but this is similar.  Bracelets are still in stock.  Everything else is old and sold out.

I’m a fan of the puffy sleeve trend that’s sweeping the nation right now.  Can I say sweeping the nation when referencing a puffy sleeve?  I’m not really sure, but I’m doing it. I’m a fan and can’t get enough-this top is Target {can’t find my exact top but Target has lots of options}-I really like how the bottom of the sleeve is super fitted to combat the big sleeve.  Once again-jeans and booties are old and sold out.

I thought this was a fun top that happens to be perfect for winter weather-or a Spring Break Ski Trip!

You can purchase a matching pair of joggers but I opted to wear it with jeans and my boots.

What I’m Doing This Weekend…
This kid has his first ever select baseball tournament.  He’s been talking about it for months and of course the one last weekend was cancelled due to the weather.  I have my fingers crossed the rain in the forecast goes away before Saturday arrives.

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month…
The Slaughters are headed out of town and back to the slopes.  This time we’re all getting to ski-look out Ski School-here come the Slaughters!  While skiing is not something I’m great at, I’m very much looking forward to getting away with my people for the week.

Thanks for reading today!  See you tomorrow!

    Feel free to message me if you are heading to Colorado and need suggestions. We are at our house in Crested Butte this weekend. Unfortunately for me having blown my ACL in Jackson Hole and surgery a month ago I get to grade papers and can’t ski:-(
