The last Wednesday of every month I link up with The Larson LingoMix & Match Mama and Sheaffer Told Me To and a whole bunch of other participating bloggers to share what we’ve been up to. It’s called What’s Up Wednesday!

1. What we are eating this week?

Lately I’ve been trying to eat pretty healthy when it comes to my breakfast & lunch choices! Since it is just me and Naomi during lunch (bigs are still in school) it’s easy for me to pop a piece of fish in the oven at 425 for like 10 minutes or less and warm up the oven roasted veggies I shared yesterday. I also might add a side salad or a baked red potato.

I know boring right, just wait, because this does get better, haha…

On nights that I have to milk or we are going to be busy all day…

…I’ll bake a lasagnas; they come in great in a pinch!

You know what else is back…Shamrock Shakes!!!

But my recipe tastes so much better. 😁

2. What I’m reminiscing about?

Last Spring to this approaching spring!

Naomi & Maddie love this car!

That picture was snapped last spring and this picture…

was snapped a few weeks ago!

(please excuse the cow in the background going to the restroom, lol)

3. What I’m loving?

I’m LOVING the change in weather!!!

It is still chilly at times but not to the point where you need gloves, scarf, mittens, layers etc…

4. What we’ve been up to?

Lately, now that the weather is nice, I’ve been cleaning up around the buildings, spraying for weeds, cutting down little saplings that are growing in places that don’t need to be and hauling “scrap”!

Naomi’s been playing outside while I’m picking up and then when I have a full cart full, then she accompanies me to the different piles.

We have a pile for scrap metal. tires, cement, wood, gate panels, etc.

The girls have also been so happy to be outside again and playing in the SUN…oh those winter bluesssss!


Bryce loves to be back on his swing!!!

5. What I’m dreading…

I don’t really know what I’m dreading right now.

6. What I’m Working on…

I’m working on spring cleaning, inside and out!

On days I can’t get outside, because of weather, I’m working on cleaning or pairing down inside.

7. What I’m excited about…

I’m excited about Easter!

I picked up a few things yesterday at the grocery store for their baskets but, I’m excited about Easter and planting flowers!

8. What I’m Watching / Reading…

Of course I’m watching some sort of Real Housewives, but also NCIS (all types), Madame Secretary and Hallmark Movies on the weekends!

I’m currently reading 

My Aunt Kathy recommended this book to me, I just started and I’m already loving it!!!

9. What I’m listening to…

I’m not really listening to much lately!

10. What I’m Wearing…

Besides my milking sweatshirt, lol, hats when my hair is greasy, jeans, tshirts…you know the Mom uniform! 

11. What I’m doing this week…

Well this week, depending on the weather (of course) I want to pull out the riding lawn mower and take inventory of the things we need to replace so she is already for this mowing season. Fertilize the grass, take my Christmas boxes to my storage unit and go through Madison’s clothes!

12. What I’m looking forward to next month…

Easter of course, being outside more, celebrating Naomi being with us for a whole year and possible taking a little weekend trip with the kids and Jer!

13. What else is new…

Well if you haven’t heard or read, Naomi’s adoption is complete, yay!!!

Bonus question this month: What is your “can’t live without” beauty product?

This is a hard one because I love so many!

My long time favorite moisturizer!!!

Have a great day everyone,
