What's Up Wednesday: May 2017

{What We're Eating This Week}
I used Mix & Match Mama's Memorial Day Menu for a couple of things this week.
The  Tortellini Pasta Salad is super good & just as Shay said, the perfect summer lunch. I made it Sunday night and have eaten it for lunch since. 
I also made her Mama's Corn Salad for our Memorial Day cook out & it was a hit! 
Tonight, I'm making Chicken Chili Tacos and I've got high hopes for that as well. :)
{What I'm Reminiscing About}
A few things actually...
 Courtney and I had the best time during our Weekend Away.
It's amazing what 2 nights of good sleep and a few meals with no interruptions can do for a Mama's brain!
 Also, SSI 2016 trip is on my mind because...
VACAY in 9 days!!! 

{What We've Been Up To & I'm Loving It}
Swimming, swimming, and more swimming. This little dude is a fish and just loves it! We are already loving what summer is all about; sunshine, a little extra sleep, and lots of swimming!

{What I'm Dreading}
Not a doggone thing!

{What I'm Working On}

I mentioned last week that I got a new job, which means new classroom! I'm working on ideas for the new decor and my first purchase was that teacher life sign from That Inspired Chick! I'm 99.9% I'm going to be ordering a sign or two more before school starts in August. :)

{What I'm Excited About}
Umm..Vacay. In 9 days!!

{What I'm Watching/Reading}
Now that all my TGIT have ended until fall it's time for...
 And I just finished this goodness. Aaagghh! 
Love. Love. Love. It'll be in my next book post.

{What I'm Listening To}
Yep. Still this. 
I finished Serial, and while it was definitely good, UAV is my #1. 
This case is crazy!!
{What I'm Wearing}
It's a toss up between Nike shorts and my bathing suit. 
{What I'm Doing This Weekend}
It's our sissy girl's 2nd birthday celebration! 
She's not mine (but she kind of is) and I honestly have no idea where the time went.
I mean, this just happened. 
{What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month}
Beach. Beach. Beach.
{What Else Is New}
Nothing comes to mind! 

{Favorite Vacay Spot}
Obviously, we love SSI. I've only blogged about it twice now, and we are headed there at least twice more this year. It's the perfect home away from home; it's not a long drive, it's a small town feel, and plenty to keep the babies happy. 
However, I do miss the white sand and crystal clear waters of Destin, Florida! Growing up, our family's vacation destination varied from Destin to Panama City. Not a huge difference in beach, but a difference in atmosphere. I would say Destin has a more family friendly atmosphere. Anyway, our plan is to *hopefully* visit Destin again next year; it's a long haul & tackling that drive with Bo just doesn't seem fun quite yet.

Happy Last Day of May!
(Where IS the year going?!?!)

  1. I've always loved when people post pictures of their vacations to Florida beaches. THey're so much prettier than the Jersey shore! :) Maybe I'll get there someday!
