What's Up, Wednesday 1.24.2017

Hey, hey, hey...
Today we are linking up with Mel, Shay, & Sheaffer for their monthly link-up!
And these are the questions we'll be answering today.

What We're Eating This Week

Last week we fixed this Firecracker Chicken, and it was such a hit.
It's already been requested by a couple of cute littles..
We'll have pizza night this week, and I cannot wait to order my new favorite pizza.
Thin crust with ham, pineapple, and jalapenos!!
And we are supposed to get back to some chilly temperatures, so THIS Cajun Potato Soup looks so scrumptious.
Does this not look like it'll just warm your heart and soul?!

What I'm Reminiscing About

So in the past month, she has gotten way too excited about "finally being 4!" My favorite little moment was when she was opening her kids' meal from Chick-Fil-A, and she noticed that the toy said 4+. She was so excited!! She told everyone @ CFA that she was 4, and that toy was for her because it was 'for ages 4 and up!'
Smart little thing!

What I'm Loving

 The newest Matilda Jane release.
The Butterscotch Latte from Starbucks!!

What We've Been Up to Lately

Did somebody say basketball?!

I mean, all we do is ball, ball, ball...& then we ball some more. Thank goodness this mama likes basketball, but it's a little much lately.

What I'm Dreading

Not a dang thing!
Well maybe just trying to avoid scheduling conflicts. We have 3 basketball teams, 1 dance girl, and volleyball spring training going on, so life is kinda crazy. We are here, there, and everywhere.
When is that day off again?!
But ya know we love it!!

What I'm Working on

Like I just mentioned, volleyball has started Spring workouts, so every Monday, Tuesday, & Thursday I'm @ the Hill!

What I'm Excited About

Spring Break 2017
I'm so looking forward to a week "off," and that'll mean we are almost finished with the school year!!
Speaking of Spring..
I shared HERE that these warm temperatures had me thinking about Spring fashions!!

What I'm Watching/Reading

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
 My favorite girls of all!!!
And y'all, I cannot figure her accent out, and I am kinda starting to love her a little!
I'm also love, love, loving OutDaughtered on TLC!
 The Busbys are just too adorable!
I'm elbow-deep in my first Bible study of the year, and oh my goodness...
It's been so stinking good!
I cannot wait to share a little about this amazing study tomorrow!

What I'm Listening to

My Poppy, the kids' great-grandfather, has taught Nataleigh such a funny little tune that I would have sworn was made up until I googled it.
She walks around singing this little song ALL.THE.TIME!
We are still rocking out to the Trolls soundtrack too.
Current favorites..
We are anxiously awaiting for the movie to be released, because we know that it'll be on repeat in the van!!

What I'm Wearing

These amazing little slippers!
I found them on New Year's Eve HERE, and they are just too comfy!
If I'm not wearing these slippers, then I'm wearing
my favorite PJs because they just remind me of this Christmas memory!!
But if I'm going out, and pjs are unacceptable, then I'm loving this dress still!
 It's so flattering, and the perfect dress for dressing up or wearing casually!
I'm also still obsessed with these boots that my man found me for Christmas.
Nothing says Southern more than slapping a monogram on it!

What I'm Doing This Weekend

Carson has a ball game, and Stephen is in his 3rd tournament of the month.
Go Flash & Go Swarm

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month

I love celebrating my birthday, but I am totally uncomfortable with the whole birthday gifts. Just leave me some love on 2/23, and you'll be my favorite!

What Else Is New

So our little farm just keeps growing with babies!!
We've had 2 calves born this month, and my Aunt Cindy's little farm had baby goats born this week. She was sweet enough to sneak Nataleigh down to their barn to see the one-day old babies!
 Check out these babies!!
They had a boy and a girl, and they are too sweet.
Check out how sweet this mama goat is!!
This child has such a big heart!
Until next month...


  1. Those baby goats are SO CUTE! And your littles are adorable too :)

  2. Love all of these! I have those same slippers in the same color and LOVE them! I put them on as soon as I get home! :)
