What's Up Wednesday: February 2018

Hi everyone!! Today I'm linking up with ShayMel,  and Sheaffer to blog What's Up Wednesday. Here's what questions we'll be answering today...

What we're eating this week
Here's my menu plan for this week: 
M: Turkey, Mashed Potatoes & Gravy, Green Bean Casserole
T: Chicken Tender Salads
W: Lasagna Soup
R: Take out
F: Shrimp tacos
S: We'll be eating at my grandparents' 60th anniversary party
S: Toasted Ravioli, Side Salad, Risotto 

This week, all 3 of us have come down with a slight cold. Nothing major, but enough to make me feel tired. Monday my hubby made the sides and heated up some smoked turkey we had from last weekend. It was delish, and I didn't have to lift a finger! Last night we didn't feel like cooking or cleaning, so we picked up some fried chicken on our way home, and ate it with our leftover sides from Monday. Tonight I'm planning to get back on track with our menu. Tomorrow Lee has a meeting after work, so I'll pick up something for myself on the way home, that way I can spend my evening with Liam and not have to worry about cooking. 

What I'm reminiscing about
I work at a university, and all the students are gearing up for spring break next week. This has me reminiscing about our last beach vacation! In 2016 we went to Hilton Head with my family, and it was a short trip, but so much fun. 2017 we didn't take any long vacations because we were preparing for baby Liam, but I'm hoping to do something fun this summer for the first time as a family of 3. 

Also, thanks to the pic below, I'm also reminiscing about how long my hair used to be!

What I'm loving
I'm loving the stage Liam is in right now. He's so fun to play with because he is grabbing this with his hands, laughing, and has even gotten a little ticklish, but he's not mobile yet so he still likes to snuggle too. I snapped this pic on Sunday of Lee and Liam playing in the living room. The lighting isn't great, but I still love the pic. 

What we've been up to
We've mostly been spending our free time playing with our little guy at home. We've also been doing a little car shopping, which has been fun. I'm excited to get that finished up and have a bigger car for our family road trips! 

What I'm dreading
I'm thankful to say, nothing! 

What I'm working on
Well, I started Liam's 4 month blog post and didn't finish it. Since he'll be 5 months next week, I'm working on one big post for months 4 & 5. 

What I'm excited about
Warm weather! It is rainy here today, but yesterday was beautiful out. I can't wait for some spring weekends to take Liam on walks in his stroller and to use our zoo pass we got for Christmas. 

What I'm watching/reading
I'm still watching Call the Midwives as I get time, and trying to keep up with Grey's and This Is Us. 

What I'm listening to
These past few days I've had Thomas Rhett on repeat! 

What I'm wearing
Since is unacceptable to wear sweat pants to work, I'm wearing the next best thing: Lularoe leggings. Also have been wearing these green pants on repeat, because they are stretchy and comfy, but can still be dressed up for work! 

What I'm doing this weekend
Well, we have a gross amount of laundry to catch up on, so that is a big priority this weekend. On Saturday, we'll take a little day trip to IL for my grandparents' 60th anniversary dinner. I'm excited to see my family and for everyone to see Liam. Other than that, I hope to have lots of playtime and cuddle time with my two favorite guys. 

What I'm looking forward to next month
Easter! I love getting together with both mine and Lee's families to celebrate Christ's resurrection. Family get togethers on both sides are always a good time, and I'm so thankful to have a baby to celebrate Easter with this year. I remember in 2015 when we were in the midst of our 6 failed IUIs, Easter was excruciating for me. It was such a difficult, sad time in our lives, and I'm so thankful that we now have our miracle boy to celebrate holidays with, and teach him all about Jesus.  

What else is new?
Not much else is new here. I'm not upset about that, though. I'm loving that we've gotten into a routine with me being back at work and Liam is sleeping great lately! I look forward to evenings and weekends at home with my little family. 

Bonus question this month:  What’s your family’s favorite spring break destination?

Growing up in IL, we didn't have a long spring break. Spring break consisted of a 4 day weekend over Easter. So my first real week long spring break didn't happen until college. Now that I work at the university, classes are not in session during spring break, but the offices are all still open, so we don't have a spring break from work. I hope someday we can take a spring break trip when Liam is in school, but for now, we don't have a favorite spring break destination. For funsies, here's a pic of Lee and I from spring break in college.
