What's Up Wednesday

I thought this sounded fun, so I'll give it a try.  I found this cool idea on Pinterest Told Me To.  So here goes...

What we're eating...

You can read all about it here!  Tonight we are having Chicken Sausage with Apples and Farro.  Yum!


What I'm reminiscing about...


My husband sent us this picture today with the caption, "Mahalo."  We were in Hawaii one year ago today.  Good times.

What I'm loving...


The Boy Sandwich.  They love to do this lately.


What we've been up to...



We've been having lots of good family time lately.  It's been awesome!  Here we are on a rainy Saturday afternoon.


What I'm working on...

I am going to a blogging conference this summer.  It is a DIY type of conference, so I am trying to DIM (do it myself) more.  My goal is one project per week up until the conference, whether I blog about it or not.  Here is a picture frame I painted.  It was black with a white mat.  Now it's white with a purple mat.  Excuse the crazy iphone picture.



What I'm excited about...

APPLES!!!  We planted two apple trees last summer.  They are actually Carson's since he is the one who has always wanted them.  He has taken good care of them and guess what we have this year???  First buds, then flowers, and now actual apples are forming!!!  It has been amazing to watch.  And FYI, it's a great time to talk about the birds and the bees with your kids.  One of our trees is the wife and the other is the husband.  Perfect illustration for setting up the talk.  Try it.



What I'm reading...

Too many books!!!  I have been on a reading frenzy lately.  My book movie club finished Wild, by Cheryl Strayed (awesome book) and we met to watch the movie.  Both book and movie are fantastic!!!  My bible study is reading The Mission of Motherhood, by Sally Clarkson.  It is also a great read.  We had to take a week off due to busy schedules so I picked up Pastor Furtick's Crash the Chatterbox.  I have read part of it before, but never finished, so I am glad to be able to return to it.  My boys and I just finished House of Robots by James Patterson (did you know he writes kids' books?) and we are looking for another great read-aloud.  See my post here on the benefits of 
reading aloud.


What I'm listening to...

My ten-year-old playing Somewhere Out There on the piano.  One of the most beautiful sounds in the world is our little people playing away on our piano.




What I'm wearing...


I can't get enough of these pants!  I wear them at least once a week.  They were definitely a smart purchase.


And this top.  My good friend Lori took me shopping at Versona in the Arboretum.  I could get in trouble in that store.  I wish I had taken a pic of the back of this shirt.   It is sheer and very unique.  Since I needed a plain white shirt, this was also a smart buy (at least that's what I tell myself).


What I'm doing this weekend...

Celebrating my birthday with Justin's parents!  My birthday was April 10, but we have been so busy, traveling for Spring Break and playing baseball, it has been hard to nail down a weekend to get together.  They are coming here.  We cleaned off the porch and put the pillows back on the furniture, and we can't wait to hang out there and let the kids play in the backyard while we relax.



What else is new?


Still trying to get over how big this guy looks with his new haircut.  I do like it, but he looks like a big boy instead of a baby.  He's growing up so fast!!!

Happy Wednesday!!!
