On the last Wednesday of every month, Sheaffer and I host this little linky party where we share what’s going on with us right now. It’s a little food, a little family, a little what we’re wearing, a little what we’re doing, a little what we’re watching and a little bit of everything else all in one post.
Cheers to you this last Wednesday of April!!! xo
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
…too. I had to go back and buy two more bags. They’re just so delicious. I can’t quit.
I made these Buffalo Chicken Wraps for lunch twice last week. They’re so easy. They go great with the pickle chips too!
One more little recipe…I saw these pop up on my feed the other day and thought I should make them again soon. If you haven’t tried these Creamy Lime Pie Pops before, they go really well with a side of May 🙂 .
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Awwww! Last week, they asked us to turn in any and all pics of our fifth graders from over the years. I was getting Smith’s pics together and found this one from field day back when he was in first grade. Look how tiny he is! Oh my heart! I love that boy so much!! I was signed up for the popsicle station…which coincidentally, I am again this year for fifth grade too 🙂 .
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
You get one base and then three different attachments. You get a waver, a traditional iron and then a barrel. Now, you know how much I love this waver HERE, so I was a little skeptical about using this version, but not only do I really like it, I love that it’s a bit different too. I could probably do an entire post on the two, but in a nutshell, this one creates softer waves compared to the other version (tighter waves). Honestly, I love both and don’t think you could go wrong with either, but this is fun because I can bring one tool with me when we travel yet get three different styles.
I used all three attachments on my hair last week so you could see the difference. First up…
…here is the waver. See? The waves are more loose than when I use the Bed Head version…
…which I still love!!!
Here is how my hair looked when I just wrapped it around the barrel…
…love this too!
And then when I attached the traditional 1.25″ clamp…
…my hair looked like this. Needless to say, it’s just another fun tool for hair…and I’m loving it 🙂 .
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
All the spring sports…and the great friends that go along with it 🙂 .
5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
I’m working on finishing up all of those “to dos” I just *knew* I’d get done during the school year. You know…I had big plans to clean out every closet, drawer and cabinet, but it’s almost May, and I still haven’t tackled any of it. I mean…it’s not a super huge deal, but I sure do love getting a closet cleaned out before the kids are home all summer. Which month is your best month for deep cleaning/purging/tackling projects? I would typically say that January is my best month…but for some reason, that didn’t happen this year. What are the odds that May will be my month?! Haha!
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
We’re going on vacation!! Woohoo! The four of us are headed somewhere fun to celebrate Andrew’s 40th birthday! This year, three out of the four of us turn 40 years old. What? What?! We’re going to celebrate big time!!
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
My April Book Review is out TOMORROW!! You are not going to want to miss that post!!
In the meantime, make sure you catch…
…last month’s book review. I LOVED EVERY BOOK!! You’ll definitely find a good read there!
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Right this very minute…
…one of my very favorite movies is playing in the background while I work. Gosh, I love this one so much!
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
Last week, I showed you these cute new workout shorts and told you that I love them so much, I bought them in a second color…
…I love them too! These fit TTS (I bought xs). I love a good pair of workout shorts to get me motivate in the spring and summer! Can we also just talk about the sports bra for a quick second…I’m really pleased with it! For the price, I think it’s extra fantastic! It comes in so many bright and fun colors too! I just ordered myself two more!
Annnnnnd…my weekday uniform. Tee (it’s 40% off right now!), shorts, slippers, repeat! I’ve also been wearing these earrings so much too! They’re very light with just a little pop of color. My mug is HERE.
This is a pic from last spring, but you all know my beloved camo dress. It’s so soft and comfy that I often select it over shorts! I just saw that it’s currently back in stock! Woohoo!! This also runs TTS.
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
We’re wrapping up volleyball! After six months of tournaments, K plays her last one this weekend!
I’m also hoping that we’ll be able to get in our pool this weekend too! I’m ready to start SWIMMING!!!
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
It’s the last month of school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
I think that’s it, friends! I am just so pumped because I LOVE MAY!!! I cannot wait for this next month to start 🙂 .
