What's Up Wednesdays

Today, I'm sharing my What's Up Wednesdays for the month of March.  I am just in shock and so so excited that we are already getting ready to enter into April.  People... that means Summer is just around the corner, and this girl could not be happier about it.  Bring on the heat! 

I'm linking up today with Shay, Mel and Sheaffer.

What we're eating this week

We've been grilling, which is my favorite.  If I could grill every meal outside I would.  Who doesn't love keeping the mess out of the kitchen.  We've had burgers, hot dogs, steaks and ribs.  I am hoping to make fajitas one day as well, but I'll make those inside.

What I'm reminiscing about

I was asked by this sweet girl to chaperon prom.  I keep thinking to myself, "Wasn't I just at my own prom?  I mean how did this happen?"

 I had a lot of fun, and I don't think I embarrassed her or myself too much.  So if I'm reminiscing, it's about how I used to be young.  ;)

  What I'm loving

I found these pillows at Target, and I'm loving the fun Spring/Summer colors.  I was wanting to add some color into my house, so these are perfect.

What we've been up to

I bought the game of Clue to play with Dan and the kids.  We are all loving it.  Probably me the most, because I've only lost once.  Haha!  ;)

Always homework to be worked on... always!

Dan surprised me and the kids, and decided at the last minute to book a trip to Hawaii.  We packed our bags and were on the airplane within 24 hours of him deciding.  We had been saving and planning for a trip, but there wasn't ever a time that seemed to fit great.  I think he finally came to the point of, now or never... so we went for it.  It was a bit of a whirlwind, but it was so fun and I'm glad we did it.

What I'm dreading

Nothing that I can think of...

What I'm working on

Friends, I have wintered well, and I'm going to have to lose a bit of it.  I have never had to lose weight before, and I'm not so worried about the weight as I am the inches.  This is all so new to me, and to be honest, it's not so fun!  I'm more of a bacon and french fry kind of girl, but instead I'm trying to watch what I eat and get out and get in some walking.

Monkey see, monkey do.

What I'm excited about

I'm excited that we only have about 2 months left of school.  How fun is that?

What I'm watching/reading

Since we just had Spring break, I took it upon myself to get in some reading.  I've been reading a fun little series, I just wish she would have finished the series with a fourth book.

What I'm listening to

It's Tuesday evening as I'm typing this out.  I can hear the sound of the laundry running, and Dan and the kids outside shooting hoops.  Such peaceful and content sounds. 

What I'm wearing

My comfy's.  Since we've been home a lot, I've been taking advantage of it, and not getting too dressed up.  Boring I know, but it's real life around here.

What I'm doing this weekend

Gracie will be playing basketball in another tournament this weekend.  It's a two day tournament, out of town.  So we'll be driving and sitting in the bleachers a lot.  :)

What I'm looking forward to next month

We booked a little weekend getaway in April to celebrate some of our friends turning 40.  When you have 5 out of 8 either turning 40 or just recently turned 40, you celebrate, right?!  :)

What else is new

Snapchat.  Are any of you on it?  It is the weirdest social media yet.  I feel like I'm starting to get it figured out, but man it's taken me a while.  And if you think you can Google it, to get help using it, you're at a loss.  It wasn't any help.  Only time and pushing a lot of buttons works.  This is what Snapchat looks like when 2, thirty something year olds get on and start playing around.  In all fairness, I don't actually post things like this on Snapchat.  I'm sure my 13 year old would freak.  Haha!  But on my blog, it's free game, right?!

I hope you're all having a great week so far!
