What's Up Wednesday | January

First let me start off today by saying...

Happy 60th Birthday Dad!
I love you and hope you are having the very best day!
Wishing you the best year yet!

 Linking up with Mel, Shay & Sheaffer for...

What we're eating this week...
All the healthy things!
Mic and I are currently in the middle of a 10 day cleanse so we are eating lots of veggies, fruits, lean protein, etc.
Along with these and some Spark!

What I'm reminiscing about...
My teen years.
Not sure if it is the songs I have been listening to lately, but it just takes me back to those days.
Choices I made or didn't make.
All I can say is I am truly thankful for unanswered prayers ;)

What I'm loving...
How much X has grown up over the last month.
I swear the calendar switched over to 2017 and something changed in this kid!

Don't get me wrong, he still has his whiny moments but he just seems so much older now.
He uses big words.
He plays more by himself (this is super tough for him).
He wants to do more for himself.
I would love to bottle up this age/stage in his life and keep it forever!
I plan on taking as many videos as possible of him to remember these days :)

What we've been up to...
We had two low key celebrations for Mic and my dad's birthdays.
So low key that I only took a couple of pics :(

What I'm dreading...
Nothing at the moment :)

What I'm working on...
Picking out restaurants and attractions for our upcoming family vacation ;)
see below >

What I'm excited about...
I can finally say it on here - Disney World!!!!
I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I was super geeked out because I talked to a fellow blogger on the phone.
Well, now I can say that Erika is helping me plan our trip to Disney!
She is just the sweetest! And has been great with how picky we are and the limited time to plan (we are going at the beginning of May!).
Seriously, I have been waiting my entire life to go to Disney!
I pray it is as great as I have built up in my mind!!!!
Any tips or suggestions for this first timer?

What I'm watching/reading...
Football, football, football!
X and I are going to be so sad when the Superbowl is over :(
But my DVR is full of shows, so I need to catch up!
The only show I am up to date on is This Is Us :)

I haven't found time yet to start the couple of books I got for Christmas, but I am reading my One Year Bible every day :)

What I'm listening to...
Lately X has been obsessed with two things - Carrie Underwood's Church Bells and Bad Boys by Inner Circle.

When those aren't on, I am typically jamming out to the following songs...

Little Mix

Little Big Town

Lauren Alaina

Thomas Rhett

And does anyone know if there is a Nelly channel?
I have been playing all the Nelly songs on my phone through YouTube :)

What I'm wearing...
I feel like I say this every month, but it is true.
Ohio doesn't know how to just pick a season and stick with it.
Over the last month we have had Winter and Spring days.
Heck, some times it happens all in the same day!
I have worn my winter coat, scarf, hat and gloves...
and the very next day I am wearing a short sleeve tee and jeans with no coat or boots.

I have rocked some of my newest pieces too!
Camo Leggings from a local boutique
And the only top I kept from my latest Stitch Fix.

What I'm doing this weekend...
At the moment, nothing is planned.
Fingers crossed I am finally getting over this cold I have had for almost a month!
Unfortunately, as I type this Mic is at home sick and X can't stop sneezing :(

What I'm looking forward to next month...
Preschool conferences for X, followed up by Kindergarten sign ups!
It is crazy to think how fast X is growing up, but I love watching it!
I can't wait for him to start school and see all the things he learns, friends he makes, etc. :)

What else is new...
I am excited to have an evening with Mic when we go see Easton Corbin next month :)

Totally making a date night out of it with dinner too!

And that is it for the month of January :)
Happy Wednesday Friends!


  1. Yay for a good month! I can't believe X is starting Kinder, so crazy! And yay for Disney World and talking to a fellow blogger for some help. So fantastic! I didn't realize that Erica did that too, I thought it was just Shay, fun!

  2. I'm on day 3 of the cleanse....I always love doing it to gain a little focus! Giving up alcohol is always the very hardest. haha Seriously Better Man is definitely one of my very faves to hear right now.
