What's Up Wednesday {April}

It's Wednesday!!!

boom shaka-laka boom

Today I'm at the kiddos' school proctoring for the state tests, and as exciting as I'm sure it sounds, it's pretty much awful! It's gotta be done though!

Today I'm sharing a little What's Up Wednesday. It's where we link-up and answer 10 questions that pretty much sum up this month. It's a super fun way to look back at what we've been up to!
linked with: Sheaffer & Shay

Here are the questions we'll be answering!
Let's get into this month's post!

What We're Eating This Week

Monday: Brinner (biscuits & gravy, eggs, sausage)
Tuesday: spaghetti & meatballs
Wednesday: Church
Thursday: Game Day - out
Friday: Dinner with friends in Pigeon Forge

What I'm Reminiscing About

Last year's cheer season!

We've officially wrapped up this year's competitions, and we've even already had our placements for next year! Nataleigh has grown leaps and bounds, and she killed it!!

When she started cheer, she couldn't even do a forward roll the 'right way,' and now she is doing combination passes like cartwheels into back walk-overs! It all finally clicked, and it's her thing for sure! Last year she was nervous & a little timid at times out there, but as for this year...

She really moved well into that 'leader' role pretty seamlessly. She is confident on the mat, and she's made some of the best, most precious friends ever! These girls are sisters on so many levels, and there is serious love here! She grew so dang much from her first time ever to now, and I can't wait to see how far she goes this next year!!

What I'm Loving

This weather!!!
Spring is officially here in the South, and literally the only downfall to these temps is the allergies. I'm constantly sneezing, I swear, but I'll take it so my kids can play outside!!

What We've Been Up To

 Easter 2019

 egg hunts
 Kindergarten graduation pictures
 Last cheer competition
Days spent at the gym with mom!!

April was a busy month! I kicked off our very first men's volleyball program, and it's added quite a bit to our already full schedule. It's been a wild ride, but I'm looking so forward to a couple of low and slow weeks in the coming months!!

What I'm Dreading

Tomorrow's pollen count!

What I'm Working On

We have a few pretty big things that we're praying all work out, and y'all, they will! God's got His hands all over this, but still...I'm one that needs a detailed timeline to schedule all the things!

Also, we are wrapping up the men's season, so we're busy working out all the line-ups and potential match-ups!

Another thing we're working on is our summer practice schedules, and that is a doozy for coaches that coach at a really competitive sports school!!

All the things!!

What I'm Excited About

Beach trip 2019!

We are headed back to Hilton Head Island this year, and guys, I CANNOT wait!!

We need some sun and fun with our people!!

What I'm Watching/Reading

I'm still on the Vikings kick!
I've almost finished all the episodes on Prime, and now I need to add something else to my list!
(Send all the suggestions)

What I'm Listening To

This is my girl's favorite song, and it's so stinking fun!!

Favorite Praise & Worship song right now!!

And we cannot quit ever loving all the Luke Combs, but this song is perfection!!

What I'm Wearing

Yoga pants, tees, sneaks on repeat!!

But I adore my white jeans!!

It was a cute, comfy outfit for Easter!!

What I'm Doing This Weekend

Visiting with friends, wedding rehearsals, and basketball!!
I can't wait to get this crew back together!!

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month


What Else Is New

Not a whole lot!!
We are officially counting down to the end of the school year!
May will be full of field trips, awards day, graduations, and inservice days that we get 100% off!
It's gonna be great!!

Happy Wednesday, friends!

We've almost made it to the weekend!!



  1. So jealous of those temps right now... it was nice today but I don't think we've even seen 70 yet this year. I know it's coming though... with the pollen that will have me down and out for a few days! LOL

  2. What a great month for you all! That weather is perfect! I'm so ready for summer time and time off with my babes too! Hope the rest of your week is great!
