I love link-ups, they are a great way to meet and connect with new and old blog friends! I decided to join two today...Jessi and Shay
The list of questions...
What We're Eating This Week
Well, seeing how Ben and I are both watching what we eat (down around 30 lbs. each, #yay!) we are staying on our plan and having lots of fruits, veggies and lean meats. We had a lighter version of my spaghetti on Monday using ground turkey vs. beef and whole wheat pasta.
It was great and we didn't miss the calories.
We are planning on skirt steak or kabobs one night, as well as these stuffed bell peppers.
They are excellent!
What I'm Reminiscing About
I think I am always reminiscing about when Cooper was little bitty. I look back at pictures and wonder where in the world time has gone? The little person he has become is absolutely priceless.
I have loved every single stage of his life, each just as special as the one before!
What I'm Loving
My new purse...
Funny SnapChat filters with my buddy.
New goodies I have picked up over the past few weeks for our future home. I have a post planned with more details.
This magic little bottle of powder. It made the biggest difference while doing hair for the wedding this past weekend, as well as with my own hair. It gives the roots a little grit, so it has much more volume and staying power. I am very impressed with this product!
What We've Been Up To
Trying to stay cool...It's a struggle.
No, really it is July in Alabama so we have been in the baby pool or Poppy's pool non-stop. We've been trying to get out and do some fun things around town with Cooper as well. As always, we are spending as much time with friends and family as possible.
What I'm Dreading
I can't think of anything I have to dread right now...maybe I'm dreading how many days there are until the weekend. ;)
What I'm Working On
As I mentioned above, my husband Ben and I are both working on becoming healthier. I am proud of our progress and excited to see what is to come. It's amazing how much better we feel already. I go into a little more detail in this post if you are interested in our journey.
|April - July|
What I'm Excited About
We just got the news that two of our very best friends are expecting their first baby! We are over the moon for them!
What I'm Watching/Reading
Well, with a busy 3 year old I don't get a lot of down time to read, so the only reading I really get is you all's precious blogs and a few bedtime stories for Cooper. As far as what I'm watching...Golden Girls reruns on DVR. It's all I ever watch for about 30 minutes before bed (I can quote every episode - if you are wondering.). We don't watch a ton of TV in our house for whatever reason.
What I'm Listening To
Right this very second...Kari Jobe Radio on Pandora. Otherwise, a mix of it all. I like The Rick and Bubba Show in the mornings and in the afternoons anything goes, really.
What I'm Wearing
LOL! A floral maxi...I talked about my floral obsession in this post. It's a problem. Basically for the past few months I have been wearing anything that doesn't make me sweltering hot.
What I'm Doing This Weekend
We are hoping to take Cooper to see a movie at the drive-in and run to Bass Pro Shops, since they are right there by each other. He loves to go see the fish in Bass Pro. Maybe go to dinner one night and shop a little. I think Ben is fishing and I am having brunch with my girlfriends at Big Bad Breakfast on Saturday morning.
What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month
We are headed to the beach the end of next month and it cannot get here fast enough. We haven't been since we went for our 5 year anniversary back in May. Cooper hasn't been since last year. Ben looked at me in the car the other day and said he could not wait to be at the beach. I agree!
What Else Is New
I think that about covers it. Hope y'all are having a great week. If you are stopping by for the first time...say hey, I'd love to "meet you". :)
