What’s Up Wednesday

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

What we’re eating this week:

Last month when I did this link-up my kitchen was closed too!!  EEK!

Tab and I are in Park Cities, Utah, at the Montage, Deer Valley.  Girls, it’s SO nice!  I guarantee you I’m having delicious meals and the BEST creamy eggs.  I don’t even know how to describe them…it’s like angels scrambled them themselves.  🙂

Our flight leaves way early tomorrow morning and I MIGHT have asked Tab to change my flight so I could have the magical eggs just one more morning.  #hesaidno  #noharmintrying

What I’m Reminiscing About:

Our getaway last year!!  We had the best time!

What I’m Loving:

THIS WEATHER!!!  This past weekend Texas had some gorgeous spring days!  We enjoyed the backyard and these days have us ready for summer!

What We’ve Been Up To:

Grocery store runs, homework, baseball practice, and dance with a few grown up getaways thrown in the mix!  (Don’t judge the junk on top.  I promise there were fruits and veggies underneath.) 🙂

What I’m Dreading:

This was also on my list last month and it just didn’t happen.  The kiddos’ closets are getting out of control.  They have to be cleaned out soon or one day we might go in and never make it out.

What I’m Working On:

Today I’m spending all my energy on gracefully skiing down this mountain without breaking anything.  But…let’s take a second, GORGEOUS, huh?

What I’m Excited About:

 A NEW LINK-UP!!  Shay and I are hosting a new link-up every month and you should join us.  While on Disney’s private island, we started chatting about being stuck there.  What would be our must-haves.  And all those thoughts got us here…

We’d LOVE for you to join us!

What I’m watching/reading:

After all that Fuller House hype, a friend let me borrow this book!  Almost finished and wow…after Full House, she had some hard days.  If you’re a Full house fan, you should check it out.

I shared a few of the past books I’d read and the movies we’ve watched last week.  You guys even left some great suggestions.  You can see it here.

I can’t wait to watch the Real Housewives of Dallas starting next week!

What I’m Listening To:

My kids have been into Inspector Gadget on Netflix lately.  I can hear it playing in the background as I type.  🙂  Sometimes it’s a tough balance to find things that are appropriate and interesting to all ages and this show fits the bill.

What I’m Wearing:

All the spring colors!  Except on cool days.  Then I’m confused and show up in a puffer vest.  #truestory  
I kept it real and showed you the “at home” version.  If I’m at home, odds are there are slippers on my feet.  

Top:  Super similar in petite here.
White Jeans:  Exact here.  
(Many white jeans are see through and these are NOT!)
House Shoes:  Similar here.
Necklace:  Similar here.

What I’m Doing This Weekend:

I’m getting home, doing all the laundry, and re-packing for another trip!  These two trips just accidentally ended up back to back, but I’m soaking up family time this weekend.  And I’ll be headed to the airport bright and early on Monday for Mama Trip #2!

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month:

Celebrating these two!!  We have two with birthdays almost back-to-back.  We tend to have a “Birthday Week” at our house and we celebrate all week long.  We can’t wait!

Happy Wednesday, Ladies!!  XOXO
