What We're Eating This Week...


I picked up some zucchini and yellow squash Sunday and I cooked a big batch Sunday evening.  David has eaten it multiple times and once as a side with a peanut butter/jelly sandwich.  Kambree has been wanting to try dragon fruit, I mean she has talked obsessively about it for a while.  So, she and I headed out Sunday afternoon and found some.  I didn't really care for the texture of the dragon fruit but I wasn't about to tell her that because she really liked it.

She also wanted to try rambutan but there wasn't any at the store we were at.

What I'm Reminiscing About...

I have been thinking a lot about when Kambree was little.  She talked and used big words often and she would refer to anything that was in the past as "lasternight".  I remember thinking that it was the cutest thing ever and that I would stop anyone that tried to tell her that "lasternight" wasn't a word.  I guess she figured it out on her own because now she uses boring words like yesterday and the other day.

What I'm Loving...

I'm listening to the audio version of The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah and I am loving it.  I thought that I should broaden my listening from podcasts a bit.

What We've Been Up To...

We have had such nice weather that we have enjoyed being outside a good bit.  I have enjoyed going through some stuff that was cluttering my laundry room and making that room feel less crowded.  Not too much going on!

What I'm Dreading...

I'm not really dreading anything but I do have a work project that seems kind of daunting.  Just something new to learn that I'm not fully confident in yet. 

What I'm Working On...

I'm working on finishing up my laundry room and my closet.  I'm also still working on the meal planning that I really need to get figured out.  I have a grocery order in the works too.  

What I'm Excited About...

I have a women's retreat with some of my long time friends at the end of March and I'm excited about that.  I'm also excited about a little cold snap that we have coming up - I know, how can I be excited about that.  It just feel like it gives us permission to slow down.  


What I'm Watching

On Sunday I finished all the seasons of When Calls The Heart on Nefflix and a new season started on the Hallmark channel on Sunday evening.  I completely enjoyed this show.  Have you watched it?  I don't know why it took me so long to watch it.  I would see it in my feed and I finally decided to give it a try.  It checked so many boxes for me.  I described it as grown up Little House on the Prairie.

What I'm Listening To...

In addition to the book that I mentioned above I have been listening to a few podcasts.  Recently I thought this episode of The Popcast was hilarious.  It's about the Nos of Marriage.  Jamie and Knox can be a lot so it's not for everyone but I enjoyed this one.  

What I'm Wearing...

I'm including this topic because it's in the link-up but y'all there is nothing to talk about here.  Right now I have on a black top with a denim shirt over it and some distressed jeans.  Boring!  I do need a jean refresh as my favorite pair is absolutely worn out.  

What I'm Doing This Weekend...

I'm picking up a grocery order and doing some meal prep.  We are having our church birthday or anniversary celebration after service on Sunday and I am making some potato salad.  I think the weather is going to take a turn for bad and hopefully I'll finish up some de-cluttering.  

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

I have a day outing planned with some friends to visit Texas-Tulips  and there's the retreat at  the end of the month.  Kambree has Spring Break and I'll be off a couple of days then too.  

What Else Is New...

I'm hoping to get Kambree signed up for soccer or some other sport.  We'll see how that goes - she wants to take hip-hop dance but we aren't loving that idea right now.  

What's My Family's Favorite Board Game...

We don't have a favorite board game but our favorite way to pass time is I Spy.  Kambree will fill every minute with I Spy.  We enjoy Yahtzee but Kambree doesn't love it yet.  

That wraps up What's Up Wednesday this month.  Have a great day!
