What we’re eating this week:
Tab is out of town this week for half pleasure and the other half work, so my kitchen is pretty much CLOSED!
Monday: We ate at Marla’s house. She made a delicious chicken recipe complete with green beans and rolls.
Tuesday: Kids had chicken nuggets and I had a salad.
Wednesday: We’re going out with friends!! Mamas deserve a night out (even if it is with lots of kiddos, right).
Thursday: I do plan on making a slow cooker meal-it’s from a sweet reader when I asked for slow cooker ideas. It’s chicken breast, dry Italian packet, dry Ranch packet, cream of chicken soup-cook all day and then add a block of cream cheese. This reader also said that she adds Rotel to spice things up and then serves with rice.
Friday: We’re ordering pizza and watching Fuller House!
What I’m Reminiscing About:
Easter last year….every year around this time when the weather starts warming up (even though yesterday got COLD here!) I start thinking about Easter. Last year we went to church and then headed to brunch with family and friends.
What I’m Loving:
All the moments I get with my favorites. 🙂
What We’ve Been Up To:
Grocery shopping with all the people!
We had to knock a grocery store run out on Sunday or we would have had nothing to eat. I planned ahead and made everyone a little list to keep them occupied. For the most part, it worked out well. However, we’ve probably never had more junk food in our house! Peek at Nixon’s cart-chocolate donuts? Usually our elf brings those and that’s the only time we eat them. haha! By the time I got to the checkout I was so thankful we were finished I wasn’t even paying attention to what got slipped by me. #lessonlearned
What I’m Dreading:
With spring comes the dreaded task of CLEANING OUT CLOSETS AGAIN! Didn’t I just do this? Ugh!
What I’m Working On:
We’re finishing up the front room in our house with some last minute touches and then I’ll be ready to share. In the mean time, we’ve been working on our front door. Our door is partyin’ like it’s 1999, so we’re going to replace it with double iron doors. We’re working with the designers now to come up with the perfect set.
What I’m Excited About:
I have a really fun giveaway coming up next week!!! Can’t wait to share!
What I’m watching/reading:
No surprises over here! I’m watching The Bachelor and all the Real Housewives!! I’ve started reading Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham. I want to love it, but it’s taking me a while to get into it.
What I’m Listening To:
I’ve been watching Friends on Netflix while I work. It takes me back. Way back. 🙂
What I’m Wearing:
I shared, “What I’ve Been Wearing” yesterday. Check it out!
What I’m Doing This Weekend:
I’m watching THIS!!! Who’s with me??
What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month:
Hitting the open seas with this group! In just a couple weeks, our family is setting sail with the Shull family on a Disney cruise and we cannot wait! We’re counting down the days at our house until we’ve got our toes in the sand!
Favorite Easter Tradition:
To be honest, we don’t have any set Easter traditions. Sometimes it falls on the big kids’ birthday weekend and other times it doesn’t so we’re all over the board around Easter. Sometimes we have family in town, sometimes we don’t. One thing that we’ve enjoyed over the last few years is our church’s Easter Eggstravaganza. Our church has a big Easter celebration for the community. There are bounce houses, petting zoos, and a big Easter egg hunt. It’s just a fun time and we look forward to it every year!
Happy Wednesday, Ladies!! XOXO
