What's Up Wednesday 2.22.2017

It's the last Wednesday of the month, so we are linking up with some of our favorite blogging friends for What's Up Wednesday! 
Here are the questions we'll be answering today.
So let's get right into this month's WUW!!

What We're Eating This Week

Monday I made Mississippi Roast. It is our go-to roast meal, and it didn't disappoint!
Andrea from Momfessionals shared THIS scrumptious casserole, and it will be tried by my crew soon!!
I mean, YUM!!

What I'm Reminiscing About

Oh those pesky Facebook memories kill me!

These pictures just remind me that we have such big babies now, and mama's heart may be breaking just a bit!

What I'm Loving

I shared Monday the three sneaks that we got back from the photograper got back to us, and I cannot wait to get the rest.

The new collection releases next week, and it already looks like it'll be another great release!
And give me all the pearls!

What We've Been Up to 

Last weekend we had a basketball-free weekend, but most of our weekends are full of basketball!
We love, love, love our weekends spent at the courts!
 Life with big brothers
 Let's Go FLASH
 Team Swarm
Basketball life!
Gym life!

What I'm Dreading

Not too much except unpacking!
We recently {this past weekend} moved into the cutest rental house until we find the most ideal location for our crew! Joe and I work in different school districts, and the boys go to school in a third district. Our goal is to find the best centrally-located place for everyone. Joe has been for the past year plus driving almost an hour one way for school, and that has just been too much. 
We are loving our little slice of heaven in the Tennessee hills!

What I'm Working on

See the last question..but really, we've been busting it with several school projects.
A little Neptune & Andrew Jackson never hurt nobody!
Stephen knew so much already about Neptune, and he's just naturally a book-worm. It was an easy project, and hopefully he nails his presentation this week. 
Carson, my sweet logical thinker, had to make a poster about any POTUS, and he smartly picked Andrew Jackson because he was the 7th President. Carson is 7, and his number in class is 7! I just love how his mind works. Jackson also just so happens to be one of mama's favorite Presidents! 
It did this mama's heart some good researching with her boys!

What I'm Excited About

No shame in my Disney-loving game. 
We are planning a little girls' day, and Belle was my favorite princess while I was growing up! I'm pretty excited to be taking my all-time favorite princess to see this!

What I'm Watching/Reading

We recently bought a new TV for our bedroom, and it's a smart TV! This means that Netflix is just a click of the remote away, and I'm loving it!

And does anyone else not just love the Chrisleys?! Oh Nanny Faye, you are #goals!

What I'm Listening to

The silence because everyone is asleep, and mama ain't complaining!!

What I'm Wearing

They both are on sale. I grabbed mediums in both of these, and they are so comfy!!

What I'm Doing This Weekend


What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month

Spring break for the kids & Beauty & the Beast!!

What Else Is New

My sweet 4-year old has decided to stop taking naps, and by dinner time we are struggling!! She literally fell asleep while standing up at dinner!
Any help on surviving without naps would be greatly appreciated!

BONUS: Can't live without beauty products!


My sweet friend Angel sells Younique, and I just love their fiber lashes!
My favorite cheap mascara is CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion in the purple tube.
I can't stand clumpy looking lashes, so I often stand in the bathroom applying & separating my lashes until they have the volume I want without looking like spider legs! Both of these mascaras do not leave your lashes clumpy!

Happy Wednesday!!


  1. That Mississippi roast is SO GOOD. I made it once before but I think I might need to add it to our meal plan for next week! Yum! Those pictures look awesome!

  2. Thanks!! It's our favorite, and I cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures.
