What's Up Wednesday: May 2018

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
I'll make shredded beef tacos later this week! My friend brought them to us when Sophie was born and they were so good so I'm going to make them. :)

2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
So.. my iPhoto has 46k photos. Yep. You read that right. Well... used to. Two days ago I started deleting photos that weren't needed and now I'm down to 39k. But my plan is to work my way through all of them and hopefully get us down to a manageable amount.


So lots of random sweet photos are popping up and I'm loving reliving memories. Here's a sweet one with my baby bubba. :) 

And all of the pre kids photos I'm like, literally what the heck did we do with our time? Haha! Looking at photos from Ben and I traveling just the two of us makes me feel like we need a solo getaway. This photo is from our last big trip before Beau, taken in Venice. Heck no, tech no am I leaving the country until my babies are married probably (haha!) but we could probably use a trip just the two of us at some point!


3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
We got our newborn photos back a few days ago and I'm BEYOND obsessed. I can't wait to share every single one with y'all. Just look at my beautiful girl!! The other things I'm loving are pretty much on the same wavelength.. being with my sweet family. Holding my babies. Seeing Beau love Sophie so much. Yesterday he picked up my phone and put it in the boppy lounger with her. If you know toddlers, you know this is the ultimate gift.. haha!!


4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

This photo has some of our very favorites in the world! Our college friends. These people are like family to us! Collin and Jacqueline came in town and it was such a treat to get to all be together!

Then shortly after my aunt came in town.. we took her out on Ben's parents' place on four wheelers which is what Ben and I used to do all the time when we were dating so it was so nostalgic! 



Beau had croup last week and I knew he was really not feeling well when he fell asleep like this in his high chair!


Lots of sweet family time happening at our house. I just love my people so much!

On Memorial Day we let Beau hold Sophie. He LOVED it. He seriously sat their so proud to get to hold his sister. When he was done he started to push her away and we obviously had to jump to action, haha! But it  was so sweet to get to see my babies together! 

5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
This already happened but Sophie turning one month old was really hard for me. That milestone was hard with Beau, too. I just love them being so brand new and it makes me sad. I know some people think I'm crazy but I just love the early days. I need a million newborns!!

6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Collaborating with Dixie Design for Sophie's birth announcements, I can't wait to share with y'all! I'm also ordering photo prints for the first time in a long time! :) Can't wait to have our newborns up!

7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Friday is Ben's last day of school! He never takes it easy but the flexibility of summer is going to be so, so great! :)

8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
Not a whole lot because there is literally nothing good on tv right now, haha! I need a recommendation on a show to watch! We just finished watching Grantchester on Amazon prime and LOVED it.
Bonus points if you can recommend something that Ben and I can enjoy together in the evenings! :) 

I'm rereading the first Ember in the Ashes book in anticipation of the third one coming out in June.. can't wait! I've loved this series so much. 

9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Any podcast that has Ashley I. and Jared (from the Bachelor) taking about their relationship. Guilty pleasure and I don't care who knows it!!

10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
Really glam outfits of t-shirts and athletic shorts. And the occasional pair of leggings. :) Lots of lounging at home with our baby girl. But I'm SO excited to be wearing non maternity things. Clothes can be so cute and I've been missing out. I've ordered a few dresses from the Gal Meets Glam collection to try on. I got this one and this one. I'll keep y'all posted on if I like. :)

11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
We just made plans to have dinner with some friends.. and I imagine we'll go to church, and possibly swim!

12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Honestly I can't even wrap my head around the events that are going on. I'm sure there are exciting things happening but right now I'm just taking it a step at a time, haha! :)

13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
just cuddling our girl :)

  1. I'm going to have check out Grantchester, thanks for the recommendation! All of Downton Abbey is on Amazon prime. I assume you've already seen it but I just rewatched it and was surprised by how much I had forgotten! Also, there's one season of the Marvelous Mrs Maisel. Idk if it's your style, but it's absolutely hilarious.

  2. Wow that's a ton of pictures on your phone! lol! Sounds like my emails right now! Your babies are so sweet! I love Sophie's newborn pictures! I have not watched Grantchester, but I will have to put it on my list! My husband and I enjoy watching Riverdale, if you've never watched it, you should check it out! :)
