It’s What’s Up Wednesday!
Once a month, my friends Mel, Sheaffer and I host this link up where we share some random and fun stuff that’s up with us today. If you blogged WUW too, make sure you link up at the bottom of the post! Every month, we answer these questions…
…in our What’s Up Wednesday posts!
Ready, set, here we go!
…Sweet Potato & Sausage Hash. This one makes a great supper or even brunch!
It’s been a week of thinking about Manda. I keep thinking about “this time last year…”. It’s hard, friends. Please continue to pray for her family.
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
My hairstylist told me to start using this Kevin Murphy Powder Puff. You sprinkle a little bit at the crown of you head (it looks like baby powder but absorbs quickly and you can’t see it), and it gives your hair just the slightest little lift (some oomph!). This stuff is like magic! I also love it when I pull my hair back in to a ponytail (and want a little volume). I’ve tried other products like this, but they always stay stuck in my hair and are hard to wash out. I found this really easy to remove.
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Well, up until this weekend, we were watching the Olympics every chance we got. Gosh, I’m sad that it’s over! It was such a fun thing to sit down and watch with the kids. We LOVE the Olympics!
I’m going to say spring allergies. My eyes itch like crazy every spring and fall. Urg.
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
The Manda Strong Foundation 🙂 . Right now, we would love for you and your family to prayerfully consider donating each month to this wonderful charity who loves on and creates special moments and memories for sweet mamas here in Collin County with cancer. If you would like to set it up where you contribute once a month via you credit card (any amount you chose!), then you can HERE. You can also learn more about the Manda Strong Foundation HERE and recommend a mom (here in Collin County) that you think needs support from MSF. It’s such a worthy cause in honor of such a precious life. We would love your support!
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
My February Book Review was up yesterday…
…you can see it HERE. I read some great books, friends! Make sure you read the comment section of the post for other recommendations too!
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
I pretty much listen to this movie in the background of my work all the way through about three times a week. The music is good, the writing is exceptional and oh my goodness, these three words just do it for me: Alec, Meryl, Steve. Bam.
Still loving my new wedges! Now, if we could only get spring to arrive then I could actually wear them out of my house. #goals Here is a full length pic…
…they’re actually light (and not heavy like her other earrings). I’ve pretty much worn them every day! They come in several other colors HERE.
And ’tis that time of year for me to wear this jacket every day. I’ve had this jacket for years and they still sell it at J.Crew because it’s so cute and FUNCTIONAL! I tend to wear it the most in spring and fall (it’s a great weight for transitioning weather). Love it. Can’t stop wearing it. Will have it forever.
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Birthday dinner for my dad 🙂 . It’s actually party 1 of 2 for him this year. What are the odds that I give him something Boston Red Sox for his birthday? #prettydarngood
Did someone say something about Spring Break? Because, um, YEAH!
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Nothing else 🙂
Mel came up with this question, and I LOVED it!
Last year, we took our family to Washington D.C. for spring break and had the BEST time!! This was one of our best family trips!! We loved how walkable the city was, the food, the history, how almost every place we visited was free of charge…it was FANTASTIC! You can see all about that trip HERE. I HIGHLY recommend it!!
Annnnnnd…because my kids say this was their favorite vacation EVER, I should also say that this was also a great spring break trip…
…our Disney Cruise! Oh me oh my oh! We had such a good time!!!! Love, love, LOVED every minute!! You can see that recap HERE.
