What's Up Wednesday

Linking up with The Larson Lingo, Pinterest Told Me To, and Mix and Match Family for What's Up Wednesdsay!

What we're eating this week:
This week's meals have so far included delicious hamburgers & hot dogs (Memorial Day cookout), this sweet garlic chicken, and tacos. I am planning to make a crockpot pasta dish tomorrow, and one of our family favorites - Shay's Sausage & Corn Chowder - on Friday night. Saturday we will be eating at some of our friends' house.

What I'm reminiscing about:
Being pregnant. Haha! We are not trying for another baby quite yet, but whenever I see a pregnant woman, I always wish I was pregnant too :) I had a very easy pregnancy (other than kidney stones!), which I am very thankful for, and I truly just LOVED being pregnant.

I do miss that bump!

What I'm loving:
That it's summer!!!!! ...well sort of. I have to finish out this week of Professional Development (at the beach tomorrow & Friday, so can't complain there), and then I am free!

What we've been up to:
We had a really busy weekend, with Eric's family in town Saturday and Sunday, and then we hosted a cookout on Memorial Day. Lots of fun, for sure. But I was happy to relax afterward :)

What I'm dreading:
More teething (for Wells, of course)! Wells has cut 8 teeth in like 6 weeks! Like. whoa. He has two molars left to go, and I know they'll be making their appearance soon. He really is a champ for having cut SO MANY teeth in such a short time, but it is obviously painful for him. No fun to see your baby not feeling well.

What I'm working on:
Still in major party planning mode. Wells' 1st Birthday Fiesta is 17 days away, people! I have so much left to do. So. Stinking. Much.

What I'm excited about:
Our summer vacation! We are going to the beach for a week with Eric's family in July. With this being Eric's first summer not being a teacher, he is obviously not off for the summer like we have grown accustomed to :( I am really looking forward to a whole week of spending some quality time with that handsome guy. Last year, Wells was only a month old when we went on the family beach, how time flies!

At the beach last year. Look at that tiny fella!

What I'm watching:
One of my favorite shows to watch lately (although, I watch it online, not on TV - I can't stay up that late anymore!) is The Tonight Show. I just love Jimmy Fallon.

What I'm listening to:
The last couple of days I have been listening to the Glee station on Pandora. Listen to it and try not to sing along. Spoiler alert: you can't do it.

What I'm wearing:
A little as I can legally get away with. Haha! Just kidding, but the Savannah heat (and humidity) is in full swing, folks!

What I'm doing this weekend:
I don't think we have plans Friday night, which I am soooo fine with! We have a birthday party on Saturday and are then eating with some friends that night. Sunday looks like the usual: church, lunch with my parents, relaxing at home, and then small group.

What I'm looking forward to next month:
While I am excited for Wells to hit the milestone of 1 year (and to celebrate with our favorite people), at the same time, I am sooooo sad! My sweet boy is not a little baby anymore :(

How will this little camera-snatcher be a whole year old next month?!

What else is new:
My job situation. I will be writing a post about it soon to give all the details. We had to make a major decision that was not an easy one, but I am overall really excited about it.



  1. We love Jimmy Fallon too! First bday parties can be a lot of work, but SO fun to celebrate that first year! Have fun prepping :)

    1. Thanks! It's definitely a labor of love :)

  2. Congrats on almost being out for summer! 2 more weeks for close!!!
    I also love Jimmy Fallon!
    Thanks for linking up with us:)

    1. I hope your two weeks fly by! I love What's Up Wednesday - such a fun link-up :)

  3. I love the name Wells! So precious! I can't wait until my husband and I start having kids.....I think pregnant women are so pretty!

    1. Thanks so much - I heard the name a few years back and it stuck with me :) Thanks for reading!


I'd love to hear from you!
