What's Up Wednesday:: January 2019

Hey, hey!!
I cannot believe that it's the last Wednesday of January! 
Where did this month go?!

Today we are sharing a little What's Up, Wednesday with y'all. This is where we join Shay & Sheaffer, and we answer these questions, plus a bonus question at the end!

Let's get right into answering the questions!!

What we're eating this week

Monday: Chili
Tuesday: I had dinner with a friend, and Joe & the kiddos ate boneless wings.
Wednesday: Chicken parm
Thursday: Swedish meatballs
Friday: out

What I'm reminiscing about

My gorgeous girl's birthday trip to Charlotte that you can read all about HERE!!
I still can't believe that she's 6 & so sassy!

What I'm loving

My go-to breakfast!!

And hot coffee, as opposed to my typical iced coffee. It's been super cold here, so that jumbo cup of hot coffee with Italian Sweet Cream creamer has been perfection!

What we've been up to

All. The. Things.

Birthday celebrations galore.

Basketball & cheer!!
And even a stomach bug times 5!!
January was a wild, crazy month, and I'm just praying no more sickness follows us into February!

What I'm dreading

Not a dang thing!!!
{Praise hands all around}

What I'm working on

All the laundry...always!
and maybe a nap or two!
I got hit with the stomach bug hard last week, and I'm just now starting to get life back on track!

What I'm excited about

Nataleigh's 2nd cheer competition!
The first one went over so great that we are all so excited about the next competitions!

What I'm watching/reading

I have found this show on Netflix, and it's my current favorite!
We are reading this together with Carson, and it's such a great book!! He's loving this book, finally!!

What I'm listening to

Oh all the praise and worship music!!
My favorite!!
My kiddos favorite!!
This song shook me big time!! How often do we come to church with our own agendas and 'just go through the motions?!' I know I'm guilty of it, and this song just rocked us!

What I'm wearing

My "cheer mom" shirt!!

What I'm doing this weekend

We thankfully don't have much planned as of now, but y'all know that can change on a dime for the Hensley crew!!

What I'm looking forward to next month

It's my birthday month!!

What else is new

We are really loving our Instant Pot, and so far, we've only had yummy meals fixed in it. It's been super convenient for this busy mama on the go. I'm still a newbie, but I'm obsessed & can't get enough of it!

Bonus: What is you favorite family Valentine's Day tradition?

We always grab the kiddos each one of those little boxes of hearts with the assorted chocolates, and they love them so much! 


What a quick, fun rundown of what's been going on and what we're looking forward to! I love these posts, and they are so much fun to look back on!
