What's Up Wednesday- February

How is it the last Wednesday of the month? I haven't participated in a What's Up Wednesday in awhile so I thought I'd join in today and answer these questions!

What We're Eating.... Italian Chicken and broccoli (I didn't love it), Empanadas made by my house keeper, BBQ out tonight for a late birthday celebration with Patrick's family, Enchiladas tomorrow night and out for pizza on Friday!

What I'm Reminiscing About... This week marks six months since my sweet mother in law, Donna, passed away. I cannot believe it's been six months. Some days it feels like a lifetime ago and others it seems like yesterday. There have been lots of little things this week that have let me know she is here with us in spirit! Our hearts still ache daily at the huge void she left but we have learned to push on and live with the memory of her in our hearts!

What I'm Loving... The spring like temps and flowers blooming!

What We've Been Up To.... We've been doing a lot of playing outside! This time of year is the best to meet friends at the park and run out the kids energy post afternoon naps! We Celebrated Patrick's 39th Birthday. The boys and I went to a mommy and me tumble class. We went to Church on Sunday and Patrick and I went to a State game!

What I'm Dreading...I have to go to the dermatologist tomorrow for my bi-yearly skin check. I always dread it and get super anxious.

What I'm Working On...I am still working on organizing! Getting each room organized and decluttered one step at a time!

What I'm Excited About.. Getting to use our screened in porch. Before it gets too blazing hot and humid I love using our porch. This year I feel like it's going to get so much use with as much as the boys want to be outside, which is all day every day!

What I'm Watching/ Reading... All things bravo! I am loving Summer House right now. Of course This Is Us and TGIT on ABC.

What I'm listening To... The Greatest Showman soundtrack! On repeat!

What I'm Wearing..Time time of year is so awkward for us clothing wise. It's cold in the morning and hot in the afternoon. I've been living in my athleta leggings and my zip up Lilly Pulitzer popover jacket from last year.

What I'm Doing This Weekend... Patrick and I are going to get pizza Friday night and Saturday he and Jack are going to the last home State game!

What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month... Spring! March always feels like the official first month of spring to me! Bring it on!

  1. I'm so glad you mentioned watching Summer House because obviously I am too ha! Carl is still getting on my nerves and I don't get what Lauren even sees in him. I still need to see The Greatest Showman!!

  2. I'm so looking forward to spring! We have one last day of rain today and then brilliant sunshine. Every time I hear you talk about the tumble class it reminds me I need to register the boys for one because I know they'd love it and it will get so much energy out! And sweet, precious Donna. I can't believe it's been six months, either. I know you still miss her desperately daily and I'm so thankful God has sent y'all those sweet little signs that she's still with y'all in spirit.

  3. Yum, your dinners for this week sound so good!! We are not quite experiencing warm weather here in Philadelphia yet, but I am so hopeful!! Enjoy it!!

  4. This Is Us owes a non-crying episode LOL, it's so good though :). Empanadas sound so good! YUM! I am so excited for spring and sunshine, I am channeling my inner Olaf ;) xoxo ERIN

  5. Gosh I miss Donna and I didn’t even know her :( I hope our lunch date works out next week!! And once we are all moved and settled I want you to bring your boys over for a play date!

  6. Empanadas sound SO GOOD! I am so sad for you all about Donna - 6 months is a long time, but I am so glad that you have been able to feel/see her presence!

  7. I was curious about that chicken dish. I don't think I will like it so I'm going to skip, per your taste.
    Additionally... give me all the Spring weather.

  8. Thanks for this peek into your family. One of my granddaughters and I went to see "The Greatest Showman." We loved it. I haven't seen a movie in a long time that left me feeling so happy ... just plain happy! We joked about wanting to dance through the parking lot when we left the theater! LOL
