Happy What’s Up Wednesday!
I have a very random assortment of things to share with you today, so grab that coffee and settle in.
As always, 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.
From my home to yours, HAPPY WEDNESDAY!
On Monday night, we had dinner once everyone was done with their sports and activities. On the menu? My Easy Weeknight Frito Pie but with jalapeno Fritos because THEY’RE SO FREAKING AWESOME.
Last night, I made my Easy Shrimp Fried Rice but added chicken in the mix too! My kids always love this recipe as well!
…my Simple Sausage, Peppers & Onions. Basically, if the world “easy” or “simple” is in the title, I’m making it this week.
Anyone else go through this time of year and constantly think back to 2020? I know I sure do! I was looking through my pics the other day, and even though those were certainly scary and uncertain times, it’s moments like these, I often think back on. We would eat lunch together outside every day…
…it was so sweet having them all to myself. Zero things on the calendar but a whole lot of kiddo time.
Here we were doing “PE” one day. I feel like their wardrobe screams “QUARANTINE”. Hahahaha! Sweet pics. I think back to that season often.
YOU GUYS! I CAN’T QUIT IT! Okay, I am officially a BELIEVER when it comes to Walmart+ grocery delivery. Why the heck did it take me so long to try it? I’m now using the service at least once a week (sometimes twice). I just had it delivered yesterday for (I think) my fifth or sixth time. It was just one month ago that I tried it out for the first time and blogged my step by step experience HERE. On the way home from church on Sunday, I opened my app in the car and everyone told me what they needed for the week (school snacks, Gatorade, lunch stuff, etc), and I added it to my cart along with items for dinner on Monday and Tuesday night. It was all delivered within two hours. I’m loving this service now as a busy working mom of four active kiddos, but I cannot imagine how much I would have loved it back in the day when I had two babies at home…or any day that I was post-surgery/not feeling well.
Clearly, y’all…I’m loving it. Ha!
If you missed it on Monday, The Bestie Breakdown Season 4 Episode 1 is now out!
Here I am recording Episode 2 (which airs soon!). We have a new format this season, so make sure you’re subscribed/following/have favorited our podcast on your favorite platform. We’re already so encouraged by the feedback just from Monday! Thank you all for listening!
Here’s what I’m NOT DREADING (because today, I’m going to put a very positive spin on this!), Miss Ashby hasn’t had a nosebleed in about six months.
You guys, I could cry.
As many of you know, Ashby has had DAILY nosebleeds since we’ve been a family. Even though it’s not “technically” a symptom of Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome, it’s very common for patients with KTS to suffer massive nosebleeds often. Doctors will tell you there is no link…but everyone in my FB groups would beg to differ. Based on the sheer volume of nosebleeds Ashby has had in her lifetime, it seemed like an obvious connection. Listen, nosebleeds are terrible, but having one every single day when you’re already battling other issues is really adding insult to injury ON TOP OF WHICH, when you’re on massive injectable blood thinners twice a day, you don’t need to bleed at all. Any bleeding turns into major bleeding. So, PRAISE JESUS that our girls seems to have outgrown it (which is also super common and completely unrelated to KTS). YEARS of our sweet girl having to deal with this *might* be over. Even if they were to come back today, we feel incredibly thankful for this reprieve.
Over here at Mix and Match Travel Agency, I’m a busy bee sending clients all over the world. How adorable are these two?! They just arrived home from a fabulous vacation…
…at Disney’s Aulani Resort in Hawaii 🙂 . Who wouldn’t love that?!

Who are we and what have we done with our normal selves?! Ha! We bought something fun to scoot around Nantucket on…no worries, helmets came too. Let’s all be clear…my helmet is gigantic to fit my gigantic head. #sigh 😉
My MARCH BOOK REVIEW will be out TOMORROW!! Woohoo! In the meantime, don’t forget to read my FEBRUARY BOOK REVIEW and especially that comment section for great reads this next month.
Always a classic to have in the background while I’m working. It’s so very “spring”!
A light little sweater tee that’s on sale? Yes, please!
If you missed these SPRING THINGS on Friday…
…how adorable is this gauzy button up?! It comes in three different color options (I bought it in blue-ivory). It’s perfect with my MOTHER jeans. Speaking of which…I LOVE this soft split neck top too! It comes in SEVEN different springy patterns. It’s just an easy way to get dressed…comfortable jeans, cute top, sandals and out the door you go!
Speaking of comfy and cute…
Oh my word, how cute are these dresses?! They’re so soft, so comfy and would work so well for running errands, travel, lunch with your girlfriends or dinner on the patio. I bought both the SOLID (also in grey) and the STRIPE (also comes in green) in xs and feel they run TTS. And once again, I was so surprised by how comfy these sandals are!
It’s my main man’s BIRTHDAY! We are going to celebrate Andrew all weekend long 🙂 .
This pic is from last April and just sums up the month. Lots of outside family time for the Shull six enjoying the beautiful weather and all the springtime sports.
Speaking of which…
…we bought two more of THESE OUTDOOR CHAIRS for games this season. They’re just the best. They’re light, they’re comfy, they have a cupholder and they rock. Sitting outside watching youth sports is all about the chair 😉 .
That wraps up What’s Up Wednesday for March 2023!
Don’t forget, if you blogged WUW too, make sure you link up below.
Have a wonderful day, friends! I’ll see you back here tomorrow for my MARCH BOOK REVIEW! xx
