What's Up Wednesday



What We're Eating...

This week it's all about Emma. She's a super picky eater and really doesn't eat much anyway. I've heard it's a phase. I hope so!  


Last night she made Pigs in a Blanket for everyone. She loved knowing she'd made dinner so naturally she cleaned her plate. I mean who wouldn't though? Hot dogs stuffed with cheese and wrapped in a crescent roll? Toddler dream come true. 

What I'm Reminisicing About...

I'm currently home on maternity leave, but for the rest of the teaching world it's back to school this month. While I set up the classroom, I didn't get to spend those first few days with my kiddos. You know the ones where they're all super sweet, shy and just settling in? The few days before all your behavior problems begin to shine through? Yeah. Those. Here's the first day last year. We celebrated the new year in style. 


What I'm loving...

You can check out my previous post for some things I'm loving right now, but I have to add this to the list. 


I've heard a Yeti is the cool thing to have right now. I'm not sure if that's right as I'm pretty low on the cool totem pole. I'm sure saying cool totem pole placed me even lower but whatever (kids still say that right?). As awesome as weeks of cold sounds, I think the Yeti is ugly and honestly if you're keeping one glass of water cold for 24 hours you probably aren't drinking enough. I choose the Corkcicle instead. Seriously amazing and cute! I put ice in it in the morning and it's there all day. I just add more water. It's perfect for night too. I fill it up before bed and it's there for those night time feedings. If I'm lucky, I only need it once or twice. 

What We've Been Up To...

Our calendar has been busy lately! From doctors appointments and football games to trips home for birthday parties to the Mustang Makeover at the VA Equestrian Center, we've stayed busy. However, the quiet moments in between have been trying at times. Emma is a busy kid who needs structure and activity. Without it she becomes a walking attitude. I've started a daily schedule for those days that were at home all day. So far so good. Our favorite part...school time!


What I'm dreading...

Taking thing 2 to daycare for the first time in a few weeks is going to be so hard! 

What I'm Working On...

Getting back into working out!! Must lose this baby weight!  Notice this one does not say "what I'm actually doing". 

What I'm Excited About...

We're currently planning one more day at the lake before summer ends. I hate to say goodbye to summer but can't wait to say hello fall! 


What a happy place!

What I'm Watching/Reading...

Nothing!! I'm (not so) patiently waiting for Greys Anatomy and Scandal to return. I need Thursday back!!  


What I'm Wearing...

Normal pants! All moms know what a victory this feels like! I'm no longer in maternity pants and it feels so good! Forty weeks in on the left and four weeks out on the right! 


What I'm Doing This Weekend...

It's Labor Day weekend! It's a really exciting one because Andy took off Friday and Tuesday. We're so happy to age him home for awhile! Here's the run down...

Friday Night Lights! We love going to watch dad coach football! Here's Emma at the season opener! 


Saturday is back home for another birthday party. It's a rare thing to see all my siblings on one place. I'm so excited! 

Who knows what the rest of the weekend will hold but there will certainly be a lot of relaxing involved! I'm hoping an extra lake trip too! 

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month...

With September comes fall and that means fall festivals!! We've already got a few on the calendar!
