What’s Up Wednesday {05.29.19}

What's Up Wednesday Graphic

1. WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:

This week we are eating lots of fish! Yummy! John went on a fishing trip Friday so we’ve been eating up fresh fish tacos.

Check out my May Meal Calendar if you’re looking for meal ideas. Next month I’ll be planning our meals out by the week instead of monthly so check back tomorrow for our weekly menu and grocery list! 🙂 

2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:

I’ve been reflecting a lot lately about what Caroline was doing a year ago.

Sometimes I can’t believe I can look back a year ago and have memories of her.

I’ve also been thinking a lot about all the fun times John and I had going to Disney while he was in Law School.

Those were some of our best times! As soon as we get out of this student loan debt Disney passes are on our list.  

3. WHAT I’M LOVING:

Pool days! Need I say more? 

4. WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

John and I both have been working hard on our blogs. And Caroline has been working hard on learning to stand. She is doing so great! 

This past weekend we went to Veteran’s Memorial Park here in Tampa.

We went as a way of honoring those who lost their lives for our country. Y’all I can’t believe this park is right here in Tampa Bay. It’s really cool! The park has a memorial for each war starting with the Seminole Wars. They even have a small museum. Here are just some of the pictures. If you live around Tampa, you definitely need to check it out sometime. 

5. WHAT I’M DREADING:

The summer heat. Don’t get me wrong I love the summertime. It’s one of my favorite seasons but the heat is sometimes just unbearable. The other day Caroline and I were walking to the store from the parking lot and she kept saying “hot hot”. It is so “hot hot” baby girl.

6. WHAT I’M WORKING ON:

Everything to do with blogging! It’s so much work! I love it! But wow there’s always so much to learn and when you think you’ve got one aspect down, another pops up! Right now, I’m working on some free printables, 3-5 simplifying challenges, and a weekly email. Super fun and exciting! Make sure you sign up for my email list so you can grab a hold of all these freebies! YAY! 

7. WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:

My mom and sister are visiting for a span of about 2 weeks! I’m just soooo excited to see them and spend time with them!!! YAY!!! 

8. WHAT I’M READING/WATCHING:

Can I say Jane the Virgin!! I love this show so much! I’m on season 3 and it just keeps getting better! My bff, Jenna, has informed me if I think it’s good now, just wait! So exciting! 

And of course, we’re watching the Bachelorette and don’t laugh but we still haven’t finished Downton Abbey so that’s been on our watch list for the weekends. One more–The French Open! It’s our dream to attend each of the majors! 

Reading…I just finished a great book, Magnetic Christianity and now I’m onto Ruth Soukup’s book Do It ScaredI’ll do a review of it when I finish. Should be a good book! 

9. WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:

Ok, so I’m listening to many different things. One of the first things I’m asking Google to play is Claude Debussy. I really like how peaceful his pieces are. So relaxing and beautiful to listen to. I’m also listening to station titled French cooking music for a little more upbeat. In the car, we have Beauty and the Beast “Belle” on repeat. Caroline loves this song right now! 🙂 So, we play it. 

I’m also big on podcasts. The one I keep going back to right now is Christy Wright’s Business Boutique. She’s so inspiring and gives great advice.  

10. WHAT I’M WEARING:

Lots and lots of dresses! It’s hot outside and there’s nothing better than a breezy dress and some flipflops. 

11. WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:

Well, last weekend was filled with lots of fun so this weekend we’re planning on taking it easy. We have a fun FSU CSU (Florida State University, Catholic Student Union) alumni thing going on. If you’re an alumn and want to come, message me and I’ll give you the details. 

12. WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:

It’s my birthday next month so that’s fun and my mom and sister will be in town! YAY!

13. WHAT ELSE IS NEW: 

Caroline is making really great progress in her physical therapy classes! We are just so proud of her.

Well, that about wraps it up! Be on the lookout for some new printables I’ll be creating just for you! 

XO,

    We missed that park on our Tampa trip but it looks pretty fabulous. I just finished Downton and am so glad it took me so long to watch it as all the characters will be fresh in my mind with the new movie coming out.

      So fun you took a trip here! It’s a great park to spend a couple of hours at, especially if you visit Tampa often. As for Downton, I hope we’ll finish the series before the movie hits. My husband is not so sure about that, or might I say enthusiastic about doing so.:)
