What’s Up Wednesday-4.29.20

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

What We’re Eating This Week…
I’m trying my best this week to not make it to the grocery store.  Which basically means we’ll be eating a big random assortment of things that don’t really go together.

For instance, on Monday we had salmon burgers, sweet potato gnocchi, and Mexican-style roasted corn.  See?  I wouldn’t have necessarily put those things together during a typical week but these aren’t typical days.

I grocery pick-up’d and didn’t realize the meat {other than our salmon burgers} was all out of stock until I was back home unpacking.  I have some frozen shrimp, scallops, and turkey burgers we’ll be eating this week instead.

What I’m Loving…
Just yesterday, I shared what I’ve been loving lately from Trader Joe’s.  We also just got a few new games and the first one we’ve played is Exploding Kittensit’s a new love around here.

What We’ve Been Up To…
 Lots of movie nights, game nights, family nights, 

Lots of playing outside, lots of walks, and lots of bike rides,

Lots of book reading, lots of Bible study time, and lots of time remembering all we have to be thankful for.

What I’m Dreading…
I’m not sure “dreading” is the right word for this, but I met some new neighbors just yesterday and we didn’t shake hands or anything like that but we said that whole, “We would shake your hand, BUT…” thing to each other.  I know things have to change for a while in order for us all to be safe but I dread the idea of a world that’s still afraid to shake a new neighbors’ hand or hug someone years later.

What I’m Working On…
Our school was officially closed until next year so I’m constantly working on ways to keep the fun and excitement of another day at home fresh.  You know working on something engaging for the kids to do other than watch tv all day?  #thestruggleisrealsomedays

What I’m Excited About…
Guess who made it to iTunes?  Shay and I got lots of comments and questions about if The Bestie Breakdown will be on iTunes and YES!  We finally made it!  You can search, “The Bestie Breakdown”, find us there, and subscribe so you’ll be notified when a new episode is up!  WAHOO!

What I’m Watching/Reading…
After our podcast last week, I got lots of thriller/scary book recommendations and am just beginning The Sun Down Motel.  {Thank you to everyone who sent me those recs!}

I’m also reading Crazy Love.  Am I the only person who didn’t read this years ago?  Now the book has been revised and updated, but I’m reading the first edition and loving it!  If you’re like me and haven’t read it, I HIGHLY recommend it!

Tab and I are watching Season 2 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.  {She’s a comedian so the language is RR.}

What I’m Listening To…
Lots of kids talking ALL THE TIME.  🙂

What I’m Wearing…
Did you see my post sharing all kinds of cute and cozy things from Wal-Mart?  If not, you should check it out!

These shorts are cute, comfy, and elastic waist {hello quarantine life}!  They’ll be my to go shorts all summer!  I have my normal size, but I probably should have sized up.  And my sandals are here for $7!

What I’m Doing This Weekend…
The same thing I’m doing today and probably again tomorrow.  🙂

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month…
It’s gonna be MAY, friends!  I AM READY!

Thanks for reading today!
