WHAT'S UP WEDNESDAY

Today, I am linking up with some Sheaffer and Shay for WHAT'S UP WEDNESDAY!
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
Tuesday: Chicken Cordon Bleu
Wednesday: Crockpot Chicken Tacos
Thursday: Roast with Sweet Potatoes and Carrots
Friday: Steaks, Mashed Potatoes, and Roasted Veggies

I have a post for the chicken cordon blue and the crockpot chicken tacos coming today and tomorrow!

2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Warm weather in general!  I was just telling Gavin that I feel like I am in a bit of a funk because everything is so out of routine and dependent upon bad weather.  I REALLY enjoy the summer at home with my kiddos and playing in our back yard, going to the river, camping, and having a bit of a tan.
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
I am loving my girls' personalities really starting to shine.  It is really interesting how they have flip flopped temperaments several times throughout the past year but I feel like they are becoming themselves now.  Taylor was really tough as a baby.  She was either sleeping or crying and her cry was more like a screech.  Trynlee was such an easy baby (as easy as a 5lb baby can be) and was perfectly content as long as she was fed.  In the last month or so, I feel like they have really switched.  Taylor is fairly easy going, good at entertaining herself, and loves to eat and sleep.  Trynlee, once very laid back, is all of the sudden really feisty.  She hits and laughs about it, yells no, and has a strong opinion about things.  She also is overly dramatic if a toy gets taken from her or she can't get something she wants.  Don't get me wrong, she can be hilarious and such a snuggler as well.  It will be interesting to see if it stays like this.
Tryn has quite the facial expressions!
Oh Tay! I can hear her cry to this day!
But now, she's so silly, independent and so so happy!

4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Long story short---shoveling, moving snow, and playing in the snow!  We also have played ALL.THE.GAMES about 100 times, and are looking forward to warmer weather.

5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
We have a trip coming up and I am dreading flying with our three munchkins.  We have flown twice with Treyton but its just a little bit different when you're outnumbered and they're all so little. It will be much better than a 20+ some hour car ride but the thought of being confined for several hours makes me a tad bit nervous.  I also am dreading packing ALL THE THINGS!  I did order these packing cubes though after reading rave reviews on them.  I will make sure to post about everything we used or bought for our trip in case you also have an upcoming trip as well.


6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Report cards and conferences!    Our first set of conferences got postponed due to the weather (see any common theme around here-LOL)!  I'm also doing my best to have all of my lesson plans done for before break and for the week following break.
I do all of my plans on Planbook.com and LOVE it!

7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
I'm really looking forward to our upcoming trip {minus the travel} and a wedding that's coming up.  Both involve family and that in itself is exciting for me!
My cousin is getting married, and I'm excited to be apart of their big day!  This picture is super old and we both look like babies....and well rested!  Lol .

8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
Gavin and I watch 3 shows each week.  We record them all so that we can watch them after our kids are in bed and so that we can fast forward through the commercials....or we likely fall asleep.
MacGyver is just a tad bit dramatic, maybe a bit cheesy, but I look forward to what MacGyver can come up with each week.  I'm sooooooo sad that Jack left the show though.  He may have been my favorite cast member.  Desi is doing a good job of filling in but it's just not the same.
Hawaii Five-O might be my favorite and Steve is just a smidgen cute. :-) There are always several different twists and turns going on and some dramatic save typically happens at the end.
I like the original NCIS as well but we have been hooked on NCIS Los Angeles for a couple of seasons now.

We apparently really like "cop" related shows!  Any other suggestions?  All three of these take place on Friday and Sunday so then we go the whole rest of the week waiting for the next episodes.  

9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Currently....Iowa basketball on the tv and Treyton yelling from his bed to come put the skid loader track back on.  #nothappening

At school though, we listen to a lot of Amazon Music.  It is included with Amazon Prime and there aren't any ads.

10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
I'm still loving all of the stuff I got from my last Stitch Fix.  You can read about it HERE.

My favorite jeans are also from Stitch Fix and are the brand Kut from the Kloth.  I have been able to order them from Nordstrom.  They're a bit stretchy but don't get saggy. 

11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
I don't think we have anything actually planned this weekend which is a good feeling.  Let's be honest though, I really need to tackle the pile of laundry that is waiting patiently to be folded. ;-)

12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
My birthday!!  ;-)  And seeing my brother and his girlfriend!  We haven't seen them since Christmas and we miss them and their naughty pup, Eddie.
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:  
I think that is all I've got for today!

14: BONUS QUESTION: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOARD GAME TO PLAY WITH YOUR KIDS:
Oh man!  We are just getting into the world of board games, and I am so excited!  Here are some of Treyton's favorites.
If you click on any of the games above, it will take you right to Amazon, if you're interested!
