What's Up Wednesday {January}

I love this link up and am excited to participate today! The last one I did was before Thanksgiving!

1. What we're eating this week....
Monday night we had these ranch pork chops that were so good, I highly recommend! Tuesday we were going to have tacos but at 4:30 my MIL texted asking if we wanted to come over there for dinner..of course I happily said YES! My cleaning lady had just left so I was more than happy to have a clean kitchen one more day! Wednesday will be Tacos and from there it will be down hill! I saw this on Facebook the other day and it totally made me laugh because it describes me perfectly! 

2. What I'm reminiscing about....
How little the boys were! I have been selling a bunch of their old clothes and with each outfit I pull out I can remember them wearing it. Im also thinking about our trip we took last weekend! 

3. What I'm loving...
We have had some warmer temps and I have really enjoyed them. I still am not ready for winter to be over and I'd love one really good snow, but I will take the nice weather while I can!

 4. What we've been up to...
A lot of playing at the park! It has been really nice weather this week and we have been meeting friends to play after naps! Its great because our boys get to run and play and we get to chat and interact with someone other than a toddler! #winwin

5. What I'm dreading...
I can officially say that I am NOT dreading potty training anymore. There really isn't anything I am dreading right now. Hallelujah!

6. What I'm working on....
Organizing. I'm a broken record on this subject lately but I am trying to get things organized and cleaned out! I'm also working on trying to get Graham to walk! He will be 15 months on Saturday and is so close but still won't do it. He wants to and it will be so nice to be able to put him down in public places and let him walk, so come on buddy!

7. What I'm excited about...
I've got a fun girls weekend coming up and then in March I am taking Jack to Disney!! I've been busy planning that (thanks to Erika for all her help!!) and I just wrote out our itinerary! I can't wait to see how Jack likes it!

8. What I'm watching...
This Is Us! I am sure along with every other blogger out there, this show is amazing. I find myself laughing and crying all within the same episode. If you have not seen it yet, I highly recommend!

Quantico... another great show! Patrick and I both like this, and finding a show that we both like and watch together is pretty rare!

The Bachelor...What girl isn't watching this show right now? I really can't stand Nick and I think Corrine is a disaster but for some reason I just can't turn away!!

9. What I'm listening to...
We got an Alexa for Christmas and so anytime we are in the kitchen Jack loves to tell her to play "Old Mac Donald Had a Farm" so we've been listening to that pandora station! If we aren't listening to that then you can bet I hear Paw Patrol or Peppa Pig in the background. 

10. What I'm wearing...
I have been living in my Old Navy rockstar jeggings and the Target turtleneck tunic. I got the Lilly swing jacket and love it! It's so comfy and I will definitely be wearing it regularly between now and summer!

11.What I'm doing this weekend...
We don't have any plans. I am sure we will do something with friends and just hang around the house. After traveling last weekend I am up for a low key weekend.

12. What I'm looking forward to next month...
Valentines day! I know its a made up holiday but I really do love it. Its so fun to get extra mushy and I adore all the pink and red that comes around with this holiday!

13. Bonus Question...
This months bonus question is who was my favorite bachelor/bachelorette? I have to say I loved me some Sean Lowe. He was so genuine and I have loved following {stalking} he and Catherine on instagram since they got married! I also adored Ben. He was so cute and sweet!

and that's what's up with me! I would love to hear what you've been up to. Have a great day, Happy hump day friends!

  1. Yay for not being worried about potty training. It's all about your mindset. I think Emmy is about ready. Now I just have to get on board. Ha ha! It's always nice to have a relaxed weekend. I hope you get one. :)

  2. Your first graphic about cooking is so accurate for me some weeks! I'm on it the first part of the week and then I get tired of cooking so Dustin usually fends for himself haha! Love the Lilly top--it looks so comfy!

  3. I just went through some of my boys' clothes too for a friend. They were so tiny! Yay for Disney!! I missed this week's Quantico. The weird thing about watching that show is having no idea what's going on!

  4. Those ranch pork chops sound amazing! Definitely trying those. Love, love, love This Is Us! I haven't seen Quantico - may need to check that out!

  5. Oh I think we might try those ranch pork chops. I think my husband would love them. That meme is me too. I am great at meal prep in the beginning of the week and then I want pizza and take out. Such is the life. Ha. I love This Is Us though I haven't seen this weeks episode yet. We have been binging Parenthood and we LOVE it. And are totally late to the game on it. We don't have anything planned this weekend either.

  6. That eating meme - hilarious! And so true! My family knows that the kitchen is closed on Friday and Saturdays in our house. Haha. And yay for not having to dread potty training!! I can't believe you were that successful that fast! That is amazing!

  7. Crying laughing at that meme! So much yes. We were supposed to have tacos yesterday, too, but that will (hopefully) be tonight. Ha! And yes, we are loving "This is Us" and "The Bachelor!"

  8. LOVE that jacket. It looks so comfy!

  9. Those pork chops sounds delicious. And I can totally relate to that meme - sometimes all my meal planning done in vain!
