What's Up Wednesday: April 2016

Um...this month FLEW by. Like, how is it almost May...how is this year almost half over...where did spring even go...how is bathing suit season right around the corner?!?!? So many questions.
Rather then continue to ask questions I am linking up today for What's Up Wednesday to answer some questions instead. 



Every month we answer these same questions and it is kind of cool to see the different answers from others and look back on what you were doing each month too. Go check out ShayMel and Sheaffer to read other fun answers to these questions: 

What we are eating...

This  tuna noodle casserole from Skinnytaste blog. It looks delicious and it is lighter in calories than most tuna noodle casseroles so I'm hoping it is a hit with the family so we can add it to our dinner rotation.
A light, healthy version of a classic American dish.
The husband is also going to make his delicious fish tacos...SO GOOD, so I am super excited about that as well!

What I'm Reminiscing About...

Our wedding...as I mentioned in yesterdays post here, we celebrated 3 years of marriage and it was so fun to look through pictures and remember how great our wedding day was! 




What I'm Loving...

This drink...
 Bai, an antioxidant drink of some sort that promises to be good for you with only 5 calories and is sweetened with stevia...plus it is DELICIOUS.  Ok, to be fair I have only tried this panama peach flavor...but based off of how yummy this one was I am going to assume they are all amazing!  I am sure I am really late to the game on this drink, but whatever...I will now be adding this to my grocery list for sure.

What We Have Been Up To...

Pretty much enjoying the nice weather still, with some of this:



 And this...


And always this...


Obviously these sunglasses too...


And when the warm weather starts to get a little too hot...there is always coloring and princess dresses inside...duh!


All followed by this:


What I'm Dreading...

Shopping for a bathing suit...I mean does that even need to spoken? Do people like to bathing suit shop?!?! I am sure there are actually plenty of people that do and bless them for it...but I am not one of them.  Mostly because of two things: my boobs. I said it...they don't like to fit into much, especially bathing suits making it nearly impossible to be semi-modest at all at the pool. Is it too much to ask for a little support, a little coverage and a lot of cuteness...any suggestions on large busted swim wear, send them my way!!!!

What I'm Working On...

I found this  amazing office/guest room on pinterest and knew it was the perfect thing for us to do in our office.  Currently we both have desks in our third bedroom, along with other random things but I have always wanted to figure out how to incorporate a guest space in there as well. The room is not very big so when I saw this idea of  having a futon on one side and the desks on the other wall it was perfect! I have been slowly working on clearing out space and reorganizing to make it all fit.

Ps...I am also in such love with that giant US picture above the futon!!

What I'm Excited About...

So the husband and I recently completed the 21 Day Fix and have now decided it's time to tackle the new Beach Body system: 22 Minute Hard Corp.  We have really enjoyed doing these workouts together at home and it is super cute to get Ellie involved. She has tiny little weights that she will carry around now and says "I workout!" whenever she knows we are getting ready to start one. It makes me feel so good and proud to have her aware of exercise...even if we are still in the beginning stages of getting more fit. 

What I'm Watching/Reading...


Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix...so funny! We watched the entire first season, and the second season recently came out so we have just started into that too. 


I tried to listen to this book on Audible...but found it soooo disturbing and dark that I had to make myself stop about half way thru. It was seriously consuming me and making me feel so icky...I really wanted to find out what happened next but it was just so disturbing I had to stop. Anyone else read this book and feel this way. I just feel like I need positive, fun things in my life and this was not it for me!

What I'm Listening To...

Besides Audible books...I am loving Pandora One: "Mickey Mouse Club House" is a favorite in our house as well as "60's, 70's and 80's Hit Radio" and "Tom Petty Radio".

What I'm Wearing...

Still rocking yoga/workout pants. My favorite are these from Kohl's.  They are a little thicker then most and have a "shapewear" band at the belly that helps to hold you  in all the right places.  They are also not super low rise, so I can sit on the ground with Ellie and not worry about exposing crack to anyone and everyone behind me!

What I'm Doing This Weekend...

Prom makeup for my cousin.  I LOVE doing makeup for anyone, but prom is always especially fun because I get to be a little more creative then the every day application.  It helps when your client is cute too!!  

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month...

Hopefully continuing to work out and see results so that whatever swimsuit I decide to purchase, after hours of deliberation, will look good on me...or I will at least feel comfortable.  I am also looking forward to the Crawl for Cancer next month.  Some of my cousins and friends...and the husband...all pick a theme and dress up and go out and have a good time raising money for cancer research and enjoying everyone's company.  Last year we did NWO and it was hysterical...not sure we can out do that one, but we will always try.
It is usually a pretty fun time and I love getting out and seeing so many people! 


What Else is New...

After over a month with cold like/allergy symptoms I finally went to the doctor and come to find out I had a sinus infection so bad I am now on antibiotics for 3 weeks...hopefully this gets rid of my puffy eyes and sad sad sinuses.  Probably shouldn't have waited so long to go to the doc!!! Anyone else have allergies or sinus issues...THE WORST!!!!  

Hope everyone has a great rest of your week!!
