What's Up Wednesday...




1 - What We're Eating This Week... 

this pic is from last year, but she still loves her corn just as much! 
We are doing lots & lots of grilling right now! And corn in the cob is back at our local grocery store! It's definitely one of our favorite foods of all time & watching Ella devour her own cob is a hoot and a half. But last night, we were outside playing way later than planned, so we kept it super simple & had breakfast for dinner. 


2 - What I'm Reminiscing About... 



With Olivia on the way, I can't help but reminisce about how sweet Miss Ella was as a baby. She was such a baby bird when she was born. I'm hopeful Olivia's entrance into the world will be a little less dramatic & we'll have a smoother transition home, but if not, I hope she turns out as perfect as her big sister did. 

3 - What I'm Loving... 


Maxi dresses. Sweatpants. Quest Bars. Warmer weather. My evening walks. Smoothies. Baby kicks. Sandal season. Extra daylight. Just to name a few... 


4 - What We've Been Up To...



We've been spending as much time outside as possible! If you couldn't tell from my previous answers, we're all about spring around here. Ella has been playing with her sidewalk chalk, riding her 4-wheeler around the yard, and I've been consistently hitting my 5 miles with our evening walks! Now if only we could get it 10 degrees warmer so I could change into shorts the second I got home every day... 


5 - What I'm Dreading... 


28 weeks on one of our evening walks... 

I'm really dreading getting any bigger. I tried to put on my running shorts & only have two pairs that fit right now. Both of those will be short lived too. Time to dig into my stash from last time around & find some suitable (albeit less attractive) options.


6 - What I'm Working On...


The end of the school year means lots & lots of paperwork! I have a ton of individualized student meetings to prepare for & a ton of grading to do. I'm trying to get as much done at school every day & bring as little home as possible, but there has been some inevitable spill over in the past week as we had report cards & progress notes due, plus we were pulled from our normal duties to grade state exams. Simply put - the end of the year is chaos! 


7 - What I'm Excited About... 


Olivia. I'm just really excited for her to join our family. I'm aware that it will be an adjustment for Ella, but I just know that she's exactly what we need. 


8 - What I'm Watching... 


Other than Disney Jr. & Daniel Tiger, the only thing I've watched lately is Dancing With the Stars & HGTV. I've given up on trying to catch up on Nashville because I'm just so ridiculously far behind & know better than to even try to get into anything new. 


9 - What I'm Listening To...


I listen to XM Satellite Radio in my car, so I tend to have a lot of variety. But I did recently download this song because I just can't get enough... 




10 - What I'm Wearing... 



Today I'm wearing this dress & cardigan with my favorite Tory Burch sandals. But to see some of my other recent outfits you can click here & here


11 - What I'm Doing This Weekend... 


Eric is going to visit some of his college roommates, so Ella & I have a lot of plans with my sister this weekend! We're going out for Mexican food on Friday night & hitting up our local farmer's market on Saturday morning. Then we're hitting the mall for Operation Find Grammy's Mother's Day Present. I can't wait - we just love our Aunt Britt! 


12 - What I'm Looking Forward to in the Next Month...


One of my favorite festivals - The Lilac Festival - starts next Friday & runs until the 17th, so I'm looking forward to hitting that up! I'm also really excited for my mom & dad to come to town for Mother's Day next weekend. And I have a doctor's appointment next Tuesday for Olivia - I always look forward to those! 


last year at the Lilac Festival! 


13 - What Else Is New... 



I can't believe I'm even typing this (and Eric might kill me if he reads this), but Ella is obsessed with trampolines & I'm thinking about buying her one for our backyard. I've seen some low to the ground options that might be a good choice, but it's a lot of money to spend when I know she can jump at Miss Jennie's everyday.
