It’s What’s Up Wednesday! And it’s John and I’s 9th Anniversary! I said that right, 9th!!! I can’t believe it! Where has time gone?! I am unbelievably blessed to be married to this great and humble man for 9 years. I honestly lose words when explaining my love for him. God has given me the greatest gift–a husband who loves me dearly provides, protects, and leads me to God. I’m so thankful to live this life with you John, you and Caroline are my world.
1. WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
This week we are eating some yummy meals, check them out! Tacos and chili are some of my favorite meals and we’re having both this week!
And next week I’ve gathered some yummy slow-cooker recipes together to have! YAY! Come back and grab your grocery list tomorrow!
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Our sweet girl a year ago. I know I’ve said this one before, maybe it’s a new mom thing, maybe it’s just John and me, but gosh Caroline has grown so much in a year it’s hard to not look back and reminisce how darn cute she was a year ago from time to time.
I’ve also been reminiscing when my mom was here. She was here for about 3 weeks this summer and it was so fun! We’d go shopping and Chick-Fil-A just about every other day. lol! It was so nice to have her!
3. WHAT I’M LOVING:
Y’all I’m LOVING My Pillow! I bought a My Pillow a couple of weeks ago and let me tell you, it’s AMAZING! If you don’t have one gather your Bed Bath and Beyond coupons and go buy yourself a My Pillow. It’s life-changing and my sister agrees! She just bought one the other day too. You guys I wake up in the morning and my first thought is, “Wow, this pillow is soooo luxurious!” I’m not even kidding you!
Ok, so now you have your coupons, go grab your keys, and head the Bed, Bath, & Beyond! Do it! Your head, neck, and shoulders are calling you to this! And no, this is not a paid-for advertisement. This is just me!
4. WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
We’ve been doing a lot of fun hangouts with friends, family, and each other.
5. WHAT I’M DREADING:
Umm…if hurricane season picks up. My family–mom, dad, and siblings– were blasted and many things were destroyed from Hurricane Michael last year. Where they live is unrecognizable to me in so many ways. My poor parents are still recovering from the damage done last year. So needless to say, I pray we are all protected this year from horrible hurricanes.
6. WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Gathering my recipes to be organized and simplified! I will be doing a post all about this with a giveaway. So stayed tuned! I will announce it on my email and Insta!
7. WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Caroline making progress with her therapy! You guys, I think she is getting close to walking! She had the best time at therapy last week going up and down the ramp and slides! She kept asking for more! It was the cutest thing! Follow me on Insta as I show her progress on my stories! I love this girl so much and I’m so proud of her!
8. WHAT I’M READING/WATCHING:
I’m reading How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. I posted on Instagram the other day about how great this book is. It really is a wonderfully insightful and brilliant read! Dale Carnegie knew what he was talking about. If you like to read inspirational/self-help type of books this one is a must!
We are currently watching Shark Week!!! We LOVE this time of year when we get to watch all things Shark. Why is that? I have no idea because I’m definitely afraid of them and don’t want to be anywhere near them in the water but I love to watch them on TV for a full week! lol!
9. WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Right now in this moment, nothing. Peace and quiet.
In the car Michael Buble. I’ve gotten Caroline to like his music I think. She still asks for Belle but she is beginning to get excited when I say Buble!
10. WHAT I’M WEARING:
I’m trying to wear more and more dresses. They are so comfortable, easy, and not to mention you look totally put together when you slip one on.
11. WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
I’m super excited! We are having a German Day at my in-laws! lol! This day has nothing to do with any holiday of the sorts but everything to do with the beer my Father-in-Law brewed! We are really excited to eat all the yummy German food, drink German beer, and swim all day! YAY!! Then Sunday we get to celebrate our friends having their 3rd baby with a little shower! We are so excited for them!
12. WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Caroline will be taking more swim lessons! She loved her lesson so much this past month so I decided to sign her up for more. I’m excited to see how she does!
13. WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
My sister Emily announced to the world she is having a baby girl! To say I’m excited for Caroline to have another baby cousin is an understatement! And to say this hasn’t been difficult for my sister is a lie. My sister is unbelievable. This baby was unexpected and her life has definitely been turned upside down but the grace, confidence, humility, and love she has received this pregnancy with is not worthy of my words. She is unbelievable and I’m truly proud of her. Check out the Facebook post of her sweet announcement!
