What's Up Wednesday | April

What we're eating this week
A little of this and a little of that.
Mic's work and golf schedules are nuts right now!
We are lucky if we see him for dinner at all during the week :(
X is on the pickier side these days, so making actual dinners seems pointless when I am the only one there to eat them.
But, we do still have pizza every Friday night together :)
But summer is coming and I can't wait to start grilling our dinner every night!

What I'm reminiscing about
Facebook is killin' it with the On This Day app!
Pictures from 4 years ago popped up last week from when X and one of his best friends had their first play date :)

Love that these two are still best buds!
I hope they continue to be for many more years!

What I'm loving
Can I say my hair?
I know that seems totally weird, but the last couple of haircuts I have gotten are just on point for "my style".
The long layers just lay or flow great!
Add a few curls or waves and I love it even more!
Strange coming from the girl that typically has her hair thrown up into a bun, but I have been leaving my hair down more these days.
And Mic even compliments me on it more these days.
WIN, WIN for sure!
You can read more about what I use to style it here.

What we've been up to
Unfortunately, work :( 
Running your own business definitely has some perks, but you also have to put in the work to get those perks.
I feel like I am eating, breathing, and sleeping work these days.

What I'm dreading
Everything and nothing.
Does that make sense?
I mean, I dread going to work and such but at the end of the day it really isn't that bad.
Just exhausting.

What I'm working on
Finding some new workout DVD's.
With Mic out of the house so much these days, I need to find something good that I can do at home.
Any suggestions?
I love doing the 21 Day Fix ones since they are only 30 minutes, but I am getting bored.
What are your favorite pilates, yoga, dance, etc. videos?
Any YouTube channels I need to check out?
I have done the above one a couple times now and it is pretty good.

What I'm excited about
Having friends over this summer!
While our house is definitely a work in progress, I am excited to get the backyard in order to have cookouts, swim parties, and bonfires :)
 And no, our fire pit is not intentially made to look like a turtle. lol!

What I'm watching/reading
My DVR is crazy full these days.
I think I have 15 episodes or something like that (basically the entire season) of Big Bang Theory, 7 of The Blacklist, and 6 of Vikings :(
I have kept up on Supergirl (season just ended) and The Voice.

And when Mic and I actually see each other, and X is sleeping, we watch an episode of Banshee.

What I'm listening to
Still obsessed with Love Yourself by Bieber and My House by Flo Rida

7 years by Lukas Graham

Church Bells by Carrie Underwood

What I'm wearing
Beginning on Thursday evening I will be living in all things orange & brown!
It is time for the 2016 NFL Draft!

Go Browns!

What I'm doing this weekend
Shh...don't tell anyone, but currently we don't have any plans.
Meaning, if the weather is nice we will be at home getting some things done outside.
And if the weather isn't nice, we will hopefully be getting some things done inside :)
Oh, and we will be watching the NFL Draft too!

What I'm looking forward to next month
Toddler Ball begins - my friend and I signed up to coach together - meaning X and his best bud up there are on the same team :)

And we are spending a long weekend at Lake Michigan with my dad and step mom and going to a Kite Festival.

What else is new
Just trying to prepare for X to finish his first year of preschool in May!
How is that possible?
Didn't I just take this picture?
Can't wait to ask him those same questions :)
Also, we are set up to have someone watch him at our house this summer, so I am excited and nervous.

Bonus Question
What is your favorite Mother's Day gift to give or receive?
I love to give something personalized to my mom - like a necklace, new bead for her charm bracelet, etc.
She likes pictures! lol!
I am more about experiences than items, so I typically like to go somewhere for the weekend.
Hitting up different places to eat, checking out new spots, etc. with Mic and X :)
Mother's Day 2015, 2014, 2013
My very first Mother's Day with X :)

  2. Did you try the 21 day fix extreme. It kicks your butt!! I also love their shakeology protein! Your hair looks super cute!
