What's Up Wednesday

I am linking up today for WHAT'S UP WEDNESDAY with Shay and Sheaffer.
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
I am currently involved in Kara Swanson's 4 Week Spring Challenge that includes her Spring Meal plan.  You can find her on Instagram or Facebook.  Her website is www.lifewelllived.fitness.  
This week we're eating--
Lemon Garlic Chicken
Shrimp Veggie Tacos
Honey Mustard Bacon & Avocado Salad
Bruschetta Chicken
Burger Casserole
Strawberry Avocado Chicken Salad

I was needing some "light" summer meals that I could grill with and this meal plan has done the trick.  Not only have I really liked the structure, but she also provides a grocery list.  I simply sat down with the list and ordered my groceries online from HyVee!  Simple is my go-to!

2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
This past weekend!  I have a final Easter recap coming later tomorrow but I just love holidays with our families!  We got to be will all three sets of our parents over the weekend and family time is the best time!
Everyone in this picture was very reluctant to take it but I like to be in a picture every once in a blue moon.
Getting to do some new traditions with Treyton...and him actually enjoy them...has been so much fun!
All the Easter egg hunts!
And the fantastic weather that allowed us to be outside most of the weekend.  Hallelujah!

3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
This spring weather!!  We have been outside a ton and my kids have gone to bed wonderfully.  
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Last week was all things Easter and this week is the beginning of planting season for Gavin.  He has been at the farm quite a bit getting things ready to go.  Planting season is hard for Treyton because he can't as easily go help like he can with harvest due to the chemicals and lots of getting in and out of equipment.  I am hoping that his sandbox and the nice weather will help keep him occupied at home without Daddy being home much in the next couple of weeks.
Gavin sent me this picture tonight as they were burning the CRP so I could show Treyton what they were doing.  I always pray the next picture doesn't involve the fire department.

5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
We missed nine days of school due to our brutal winter so my students are going to school until June 7th and I have to go back June 10th.  We were supposed to be out in May and I know that that last week in June is going to be slightly miserable.

6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
I have to do some state testing with my students individually on Thursday so I am working on my sub plans for that day.  I like to get my next week planned out as well so I will be working on those today as well.

7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
I'll be perfectly honest---I'm really excited for summer! I feel like it is right around the corner and this warmer weather really has me itching to be at the river, camping, and spending all day with my kiddos.  I love my job, don't get me wrong, but I REALLY love summer!
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
I'm slowly working my way through Kristan Higgins's Now That You Mention It.  I have really liked it.  I just fall asleep within seconds of turning on my Kindle every night so it has been taking me forever.
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
My windows are open as I'm typing this and hearing the birds outside and the frogs down at the pond is so lovely!!
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
I have finally got to break out some of my Spring clothes and put away all of my sweaters and winter clothes.  It has been a very welcomed change!

Have a great Wednesday!!  I'll be back tomorrow with the last part of our Easter weekend!
