Whad up? | Spring Style Week 3

The first part of that title is said in my most gangsta way possible. lol!
Today I am joining Mel, Sheaffer, and Shay for their new monthly link up

Every month the following questions will be answered along with a bonus or seasonal question.

So let's get to it!

What we're eating this week...Over the weekend I felt like all we ate were donuts!
Otherwise we have been eating roasted veggie bowls with chicken and rice, and pizza on Friday nights :)

What I'm reminiscing about...High school after listening to 90's on 9 and thanking God for unanswered prayers :)

What I'm loving...That it is finally sandal weather!
I love my boots in the Fall and Winter, but once Spring hits I am all about the sandals.
Well, as long as the temp is above 40* it is sandal weather for me :)

What we've been up to...Removing wallpaper, painting, mowing the grass, and trying to enjoy our back deck and patio before we move.

What I'm dreading...Selling our house :(
I love our house and all the updates we have done to it.
While I am excited to move, I wish I could take that house with us.

What I'm working on...This post. lol!
On my list of what needs done at our house before we list it :/

What I'm excited about...X starting T-Ball in a couple of weeks!

What I'm watching/reading...Trying to get caught up on my shows, but failing miserably :(
I am caught up on The Voice though :)
Still watching The Blacklist and Vikings too!

What I'm listening to...Since XM is free for the first few months in my new car I have been listening to a lot of 90's on 9 and Backspin. Both of them totally take me back to my middle and high school days.

What I'm wearing...I have been taking part in the #GYPOSpringStyle Challenge over the last few weeks so you can check out my outfits below :)

What I'm doing this weekend...More than likely we will be working on our house, touching up paint, and enjoying the warmer weather.

What I'm looking forward to next month...My little brother is getting married! I am hoping I don't cry like a baby the whole time since I will be up in front of everyone as a bridesmaid. I also pray that X walks down the aisle without too much crazy and stays quiet during the ceremony :)

What else is new...At the moment, nothing!
We are so consumed with fixing up, moving, selling, etc. of all the homes involved as well as the wedding that I haven't had much time to focus on anything else!

Bonus Question
What are you getting your mom (or what do you want) for Mother's Day?
Well my mom reads this here blog so I can't disclose that info just yet.
And I'm "not allowed" to give her anything according to her. Whatever!
Something I would like for Mother's Day would be breakfast or lunch with my two guys followed by a me only mani and pedi :)
Plus, I need those for the wedding the following weekend so it really takes care of tasks I have to do anyway.
