What’s Up Wednesday {02.27.19}

It’s What’s Up Wednesday !

Annnnnd please note, the new graphic…

What's Up Wednesday Graphic

Sheaffer and I decided we needed to change the first one, so here you go  WUW Graphic 2.0!  If you’re blogging and linking up today, please switch it out.  #thankyou

On the last Wednesday of every month, Sheaffer and I host this little link up where we share what’s going on with us right now.  Most Wednesdays, Sheaffer blogs WUW right along with us, but occasionally, during Bachelor/Bachelorette season, she blogs recaps of that instead.  So, if you want to read about Sheaffer’s thoughts on this week’s episode, click HERE.  She’s doing that today on her blog…and it is always super entertaining!!

What am I doing today?  Flying home from my favorite city with my favorite man after seeing my favorite artist in concert last night.  Andrew and I went to Boston to see Buble.  Yesssssssss!!!  I’ll recap that later, but in the meantime, I have to jet because I literally have to get on an airplane.  Happy Wednesday, friends!

1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:

Well, if you need a meal plan this week, try this one

Meal Planning Monday

…my Meal Planning Monday is here to make your weeknights easy peasy!!

Also, anyone getting ready for St. Patrick’s Day?!?!  Look at this fun little recipe you could make…

Lucky Shamrock Mix

…my Lucky Shamrock Mix or this one…

Butterscotch Beer Bars

Butterscotch Beer Bars 🙂 .

2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:

Well, right now, I’m thinking a lot about this…

…you know, the last time I was in Boston seeing my Red Sox win Game One of the World Series!  I am soooooo pumped about this next season!!  It starts in a month!!

3: WHAT I’M LOVING:

This baby right here…

Erika was raving to all of her friends about this Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer.  She kept telling us how life changing this thing is.  You take your towel-dried hair and use this as your hair dryer while it simultaneously smooths your hair out and basically does it for you.  I was super intrigued (and totally impressed by how great Erika‘s hair looked), so I bought one myself and friends, I LOVE IT!  I’ve used it several times, but on Saturday, I photographed as I used it, so that you can see…

1: After I got out of the shower, I sprayed my Prep Rally over my hair and then brushed it out.  After that, I applied my Mistress Hair Balm.

2: Next, I got dressed (my cute yellow top is HERE) and then while my hair air dried a bit, I put on my makeup.

3: Next, I sectioned off my hair.  I always use these clips and work with three sections.  Here is the bottom section.

4: Then, I used my Revlon Dryer and dried it out.  Easy!!!

5: I repeated with the next two sections until I was done.

Dry, smooth and straight!

 

My earrings are HERE.  They’re super light 🙂 .

I didn’t apply any other products for the rest of the day nor did I use a flat iron or anything like that.

Um, LOVE!  I am going to take this with me on vacation instead of my blow dryer because it’s a bit smaller and will do the job with such ease!!  Thank you, Erika for sharing this with us!!  I AM LOVING IT!!!  You can find it HERE.

4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

We’ve been getting ready for our Spring Break trip!  Last Saturday, the two big girls and I went shopping and finished off our to-do list.  Did you see my Spring Break finds?  I posted them HERE.  Here is a little peek…

…like these flip flops and then this…

beach bag.

You can see it all HERE.

5: WHAT I’M DREADING:

I get summer fever BAD.  Anyone else?  I come back from Spring Break and am ready for the carefree days of summer.

Ruined.

I am ruined after Spring Break 🙂 .

Except this is me after Spring Break.  Sigh.

6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:

So many vacations!!

We are planning vacations like crazy around here!  Trips to Walt Disney World, Alaska, the Caribbean, Asia, Europe, Australia, cruises all over the world, and many, many more destinations.  If you are looking to book your next vacation, we would love to help you!  Email us today for more information at mixandmatchtravelagency@yahoo.com.

WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:

Did someone say…

…Spring Break?!?!

8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:

My FEBRUARY BOOK REVIEW is TOMORROW!!!

You need to come back and check out what I read this month!  It’s a good list, friends 🙂 .

9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:

All the Buble, baby!

10: WHAT I’M WEARING:

This jacket on REPEAT!

Last week, I wore it FOUR days!

JACKET//TOP//JEANS//WEDGES//EARRINGS

On Tuesday, I wore it to run a few errands.

Here I am heading to the dentist in my jacket with my wedge booties on Thursday!

And then, on Friday too with my favorite green sweater!

Finally, I wore it on Saturday to the movies and to Target!

What I love the most about it is that you can cinch it up to make it a little more or less fitted depending on your size or how you want to wear it.  I bought it in an xsmall and feel it’s true to size.  Love this jacket!

11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:

Celebrating my dad’s birthday with GERMAN FOOD!!!  My very favorite 🙂 .

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

I’m tempted to say “Spring Break” again…but I won’t.  I’m looking forward to the days getting a bit longer, the kids’ spring sports beginning, baseball season starting, the weather warming up a bit, spending time outside with my family and the beginning of spring.

13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:

 Whew!  I think I’m done!

Bonus question this month:   WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE BOARD GAME TO PLAY WITH YOUR KIDS?

Okay, I cannot wait to read your ideas because we LOVE playing board games!!  I just bought Clue for my kids, and I cannot wait to play it with them (it arrived while we were gone).  I used to love playing this one when I was little, and somehow, totally forgot about it until the other day.  We play Life all the time, and I would say that’s probably our favorite board game right now.  What is yours???  I love it when we play games!

Okay, that wraps up What’s Up Wednesday!  I hope you all have the BEST day!

I’ll see you all back here tomorrow for my FEBRUARY BOOK REVIEW!!! xo

      We love games too! Our favorite board games are Forbidden Island (It’s collaborative which is nice with the kids, our youngest (7) plays on a team with mom or dad), a similar concept game good for the younger ones is Outfoxed. Not a board game, but we also love Sleeping Queens and Sushi Go!

    Ticket to Ride is an absolute favorite at our house! It woulD be perfect for Kensington and Smith! The basic concept is a board with a map (USA, Nordic Countries, Germany.,.they have SO many options) and its a strategy game with cards and train pieces to construct routes to and from specific places on the map, all while watching your # of train pieces remaining, and making sure your opponents don’t take your routes! The USA map is good for starters to learn the basic rules. Some of the other games build on the basic rules to add more elements of strategy. Again, good game for your older two, but I think I have seen “Ticket to Ride Junior” in stores too-I know nothing about that but it could be good for Ashby and Madeley!

    I have to say that Revlon one step dryer was life changing for me. My hair is super thick and holds a lot of water so it takes even a professional a long time to dry my hair straight. I watched a lot of reviews on this product on YouTube and was not disappointed. I do a quick blow dry to get my hair about 75% dry before I use it ( or air dry if I have the time). Then divide my hair in sections and go to work. It’s so easy and the results are amazing!

  • Reply Rebecca Jo February 27, 2019 at 6:45 am

    Its still too cold for me to pull out my military jacket, but once it warms up some, i’ll be wearing it ALL the time. Its such a cute look for anything.

  • Reply Kristine G. February 27, 2019 at 6:59 am

    Our new favorite game is Spot It! It’s actually a card game, not a board game. It comes in a cute little tin so you can toss it in your purse! They have all different kinds…we have the Minnesota Twins edition. You should get the Red Sox one, Shay! My kids are 7 and 9 and they love it!

    • Reply Martha February 27, 2019 at 1:13 pm

      My family loves this one too! I like that there are variations and one person can even play by themselves. Since it’s all picture-based, my kids can play in English or French, so great practice.

  • Reply Connie February 27, 2019 at 7:00 am

    We play Life and Clue here as well. Googley Eyes is fun! We also play a lot of Rummikub and Yahtzee here! I’ve heard Ticket To Ride is fun. They even have a Ticket To Ride Jr. I may buy it this Christmas. I’m so glad to be done with Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders. LOL My kids loved playing those games when they were little. I’ll be back to read more board game ideas too. Have a great day Shay! 🙂

  • Reply Tammy February 27, 2019 at 7:20 am

    I love my Revlon dryer. I find I use it more on day two and three of not washing my hair. I spritz my hair with conditioning spray and water to dampen my hair before using it. It gives my non washed hair volume otherwise my hair is really flat.

  • Reply Jessamyn February 27, 2019 at 7:23 am

    Try Space Team! It’s a cooperative card game that gets pretty rowdy! Your big kids would love it, and adults do too. You’re working together to get your spaceship to space. 🙂

  • Reply Jen February 27, 2019 at 7:23 am

    YES! I’ve been using that Revlon dryer for about 6 months now and it is nothing short of amazing! It is like getting a professional blow out…my hair is super smooth and straight and it is SO much faster than a regular hair dryer for me. I even use it on my daughter’s hair (super thick and down to her bottom), though my arm gets pretty tired by the time we’re done with hers, LOL! SO AMAZING!!

  • Reply Kerri February 27, 2019 at 7:26 am

    I just love these link ups so much! You should definitely check out the board game Suspicion if you guy are CLUE fans. It’s completely different but still has that whole “Who done it” thing going for it, and it is really so much fun! Also Treasure Island, Sushi Go!, and Wits and Wagers are super fun ones!

    Clue and Life are family favorites right now along with the Great States game you suggested way back in the fall. I’m so intrigued by the Revlon dryer…I have a DB Buttercup I love but it still takes sweet forever to dry my hair and I always have to finish with a flat iron so I’m thinking this might be a good fit.

  • Reply Danielle February 27, 2019 at 7:37 am

    Great post! My kids are very into board games lately, so I have to pick some of these up. We’ve been playing Guess Who a lot and are ready for something new. Also, Shay with straight hair!!!

    Would you say there is a big diff between the Revlon & the Dyson supersonic hair dryer?

    My three are a little younger than yours (6, 5 and 3). The two games we play most are- Peek-a-doodle-do and a Pengaloo. My three year can play both and my 6 1/2 still has fun with both games!

  • Reply Meredith February 27, 2019 at 8:07 am

    Love the dryer- I got it 2 weeks ago after Erika talked about it and it took a few times but I am really getting the volume I wanted no-w. I have pretty straight hair but dryer usually make it frizzy- not this one. I also use it on dry hair after dry shampoo.
    My kids love clue, sorry, monopoly, uno, and good old fashion card games- they are a few years older than yours but have played for several

  • Reply Jess W February 27, 2019 at 8:07 am

    We got the Monopoly: Ultimate Banking Edition and played it over the holidays and my niece’s (and us adults) couldn’t get enough of it! I loved Monopoly as a kid, but it took SO long. This one doesn’t have fake money, it’s a debit card with an electronic machine that tracks everything for you. The games don’t last very long at all, it’s very manageable. I think one evening we ended up playing 4 games in a row!

  • Reply Amy February 27, 2019 at 8:29 am

    Games: TROUBLE is a super favorite here; Sorry, CARS Monopoly (great for younger kids, pretty different from the classic game), Yahtzee (although that’s a dice game, not board), I have gotten several more educational cute games from Target like the Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel game and a puppy game, Eric Carle’s Brown Bear Brown Bear What do you See, Rummikub Jr., DIzzy Dizzy Dinosaur

    We love to play a game called Outfoxed. You reveal clues to catch which fox is the thief. They love it so much, but we did modify just slightly. The instructions call for players to move their game pieces around the board, and we’ve found that element to be completely unnecessary and just distracting. We just take turns finding clues and revealing suspects until we come up with the thief!

    Three games that we really enjoy that haven’t been mentioned yet are: Word on the Street jr (good for 7+), 5 second rule jr (my 4 year old can participate in this but fun for all!) and Silly Street.

    Straight hair looks great on you!
    Can’t wait for the book review tomorrow 😁

    Yes!!! That dryer is my obsession. I’ve convinced almost ten friends to purchase it as well. Hot tip: Sometimes I go stick straight, but if I want a little body and wave, I start at the root, pull and wrap the hair around the barrel at the same time, then twist as I get to the bottom. Hold it twisted around your ends for a few seconds. Then you’ll have nice, bouncy SMOOTH waves!

    Uno attack is a favorite! Easy enough for my 4 year old to hang with a 9 year old when we play!

    We played a lot of Clue when we had kids living at home. Now we play Farkle and Five Crowns and Triple Yahtzee a lot.

    It’s not a board game, but Even Steven’s Odd is a fast-paved dice game…fun for most ages!

    Your hair is so amazingly thick! You’re so lucky! Looks fabulous

    We love Eye Found It, Disney Version, Pete the Cat Groovy Buttons and GOLO Golf {dice game}. Spot It is also fun — they have so many versions — you’d probably love the Red Sox version or Splash, which is waterproof and could be played poolside! All of these can be found on Amazon…because I’m that kind of mom 😉

    Anyone debating it…..go buy that revlon dryer now!😀
    I am always disappointed when I try thing others rave about but not this time!!! I have curly ish hair that took forever to dry then flat iron and now I only have to dry with this tool and my hair is straight bouncy and shiny. No joke I get compliments all the time on my hair. I promise you it’s worth it. I never leave reviews. Hi Shay!
