What’s Up Wednesday

I always enjoy reading these posts, but have never participated myself. I told myself last month that I would join in this go round, so here we are! Linking up with Shay.



This week’s dinner menu consists of taco bowls two nights, turkey burgers with roasted potatoes, my baked pork chops, and mini paleo Italian turkey meatloaf. For lunches I am having paleo sloppy joe’s over baked red potatoes.

Lot’s of things, but mostly past beach trips. I cant wait to take our first one as a family of three with Zoe! I am hoping that she is going to be a water/beach baby.

Things are pretty routine over here. Just werk werk werk werk werk. And well, raising a tiny human too! I went and picked up my money from the consignment sale I was in this past weekend. I actually made $50!!! And the girls that are doing it are hosting a garage sale next month so they offered to keep my stuff for it, so I plan on getting more stuff together before then to get rid of as well.


All of the bugs that we are going to have this year since it never really got cold here. Woof. This accurately describes the south…


Trying to get some blog posts drafted, organizing pictures on my computer, finishing the office in our house, and most recently I started uploading photos to make books for each month of Zoe’s first year. I figure I can do the first four months in the next month…and then just keep up with it monthly after that. I am making a page in each one to share mostly what I share on her monthly updates here on the blog too so she can see how she changed from month to month.


We just finished Big Little Lies last night. I would like to start 13 Reasons Why soon. I am almost done reading The Girl You Left Behind, I have about 20% left. And I just started listening to I Don’t Know How She Does It on audiobook.

I have fully embraced the athleisure wear trend, and wearing lots of black workout capris, flowy workout tops and sports bras just about every day around the house. When I actually do leave, it is mostly swing or shift dresses. I have been wearing the heck out of the LC sandals I picked up a few weeks ago too!


I am not really sure what we have planned for the weekend. Friday, Mario Kart comes out for the Switch. I plan to be in line when the stores open to grab one!!! So I am sure we will be playing that some! My BIL’s birthday is this weekend, and my sister is having a bonfire party for him Saturday night. Not sure if we will make it though since it is closing in on Zoe’s bedtime.

Chris’s birthday is next month! Hopefully we can plan something fun to do.

    I’m 1000% in support of this athleisure trend. I’m sitting here at work in leggings & a swing cotton dress. I dont think I can go back to actual waist pants 😉 haha

    I totally support the athleisure trend. I just wish I could wear it to work. haha

    YES to Mario Kart! And I can’t wait to hear all about Zoe’s first beach trip. She’ll be a water baby for sure <3

    Going to the beach with Zoe will be so much fun! I bet she’ll love to play in the sand! Also, the athleisure trend is probably my fave thing ever, just sayin’!

  • Reply Sierra April 26, 2017 at 10:57 am

    Aw I hope she loves the beach too! Little toes in the sand give me all the heart eyes. I already got bit by a few mosquitoes (I’m like a daggone magnet!) and it’s not even that warm here yet. I used to love Mario Kart! Beautifully Candid

    Oooh I’m loving those LC Sandals!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph April 26, 2017 at 11:21 am

    I was like 10 years early to athleisure wear and will be wearing it 30 years after it’s out. LOLOL

    I should make sloppy joes soon. I love them.

  • Reply Heather April 26, 2017 at 11:54 am

    So jealous of your ability to wear most athleisure!! 😉 This link up looks like a fun one!!!

  • Reply Allison Arnone April 26, 2017 at 11:58 am

    OMG I used to love Mario Kart on Super Nintendo back in the day!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders April 26, 2017 at 1:08 pm

    I’m really scared of how bad the mosquitoes are going to be this year as well! Already in Texas they’re terrible, but hopefully it’s not too terrible. And hooray for taking Zoe to the beach for the first time! I loved taking Dart, so I can’t even imagine what it’s like for a baby to experience it for the first time. And the idea of doing a book every month for Zoe is such a great idea! She will love that when she gets older!

  • Reply StephTheBookworm April 26, 2017 at 2:17 pm

    Oh that is awesome that you ended up making $50! Sweet!
    I am so about the leisure wear. Most days at work, I wear leggings with a comfortable dress or tunic. Days off it’s leggings or yoga pants. I am all about comfort these days. 🙂

    Great job at the consignment sale!

    Taco bowls sound really good! That’s awesome that you got $50! Great job!

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family April 26, 2017 at 4:08 pm

    Yay for thinking about your first beach trip with Zoe! How fun will that be?! Assuming our doctor clears us to travel, we’ll be heading to Destin next week and I’m so excited!! 🙂

    And girl, I am all about that athlesiure trend!

  • Reply texerinsydney April 26, 2017 at 6:05 pm

    I need to remember to make that paleo sloppy joe recipe again.
    I hope you and Chris are able to do something fun for his birthday too. I’m a big fan of celebrating!
    I was a big fan of the cast for Big Little Lies. What did you think?

    If you have time to watch the movie I dont Know how she does it, it’s cute and light and fun with Sarah Jessica Parker! Hope a beach vacay is in your future soon!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Anytime a baby is born in my Southern family, there’s always that secret prayer of please let him/her be a beach baby, since that’s where we spend so much time! It’s kind of funny, and then there’s the relief once the kids fall in love with the beach like we all do. So far, so good!

    All of your meals for the week sound delicious and yay for making some money from the consignment sale! Photo books can be so hard to keep up with, so it’s such a good idea to try and do them monthly so you don’t get behind– I need to start doing that with our vacations or things, I always put them off and then get too overwhelmed.

  • Reply Audrey April 27, 2017 at 9:37 am

    We’ve always been a Nintendo family… Gameboys, Nintendo 64, Gamecube, Wii…… I feel like the Nintendo Switch is in our not-to-distant future. And I definitely NEED that Mario Kart game 🙂
    Way to go with the consignment sale!
    I hate bugs. They’re terrible here. I can only imagine the south…
