What’s Up Wednesday

Hey Everyone!

What’s Up Wednesdays are always one of my favorite posts of the month. We are definitely in a rainy season here in Jersey so we are putting all of our efforts into making our summer plans. Here’s some more of what we are up to…


What We’re Eating This Week…

Junk. We need to get back on the healthy eating bandwagon.

Exhibit A: Hot Dogs

Exhibit B: Ice Cream

What I’m Reminiscing About…

Hank’s first Track Races. This year Reid is the last little straggler of the race but last year that straggler was little Hank, trotting along. It’s amazing how in a year’s time Hank has really matured and learned.

What I’m Loving…

Snuggles. Both my boys have been asking me to snuggle with them a lot lately. I couldn’t be happier to oblige.

What We’ve Been Up To…

Planning our summer craziness! We have so many fun things planned for this summer! We’ve gotten tickets for the rides on the Boardwalk at our beach, the water park, Dutch Wonderland (over in PA), Storybook Land, passes to the aquarium, we have a trip to Niagara Falls planned, and are going to Disney in September. The fun never stops in this house!

What I’m Dreading…

Nothing at the moment.

What I’m Working On…

My Mother’s Day menu. Every year I have my parents and siblings over for brunch on Mother’s Day. This year, the day also falls on my Dad’s Birthday which will be so much fun. My Mom is gluten free and a vegetarian, my Dad is a meat and potatoes kinda guy, Hank’s as picky as they come and the rest of will eat pretty much anything. So the menu is always a hodgepodge of everyone’s favorites.

What I’m Excited About…

School being done! This was my first year as a parent of a student. Even though that student only goes two mornings a week, I’m counting it. We still have 6 weeks to go but I like being unencumbered by projects. I have no idea how all of you moms of school age kids manage.

What I’m Reading…

The Swans of 5th Avenue

What I’m Listening To…

Rain Drops

We are feeling the April showers over here in Jersey. The weather has been so wacky and with the alternating rain/green pollen/rain/green pollen, my sinuses are OVER the month of April.

What I’m Wearing…

White Jeans. I have fully transitioned to my Spring/Summer clothes and I love THIS PAIR that I picked up the other day. So comfy!

What I’m Doing This Weekend…

We have a very busy weekend of birthday parties, baby showers, swim lessons and a track race. All fun things so I know we will have a blast albeit exhausted.

What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month…

So much! May is BY FAR the busiest month in our family.

Our town fair is at the park at the end of our block so we will be hosting a BBQ for everyone to come back to after all the fun. You can watch the fireworks from our back porch!

    Tara! We have the Healthy Kids Running Series here in NH too! We missed the first race on Sunday because we were up in Niagara but can’t wait for the next one this weekend. Diana did it last year and it was an awesome experience. She is doing it again and this year we have Eva signed up too- should be funny watching the little toddlers run their 50 yard dash! Oh and love your white jeans and sneakers 🙂

    You know how much I adore those baseball tennis shoes! Girl, your May is going to be so much fun, isn’t the prospect of summer in the warmer months so exciting plus yes to all the hotdogs and ice cream, LOL! Love your white jeans, I will wear mine to death! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

    I usually only let the kids have cereal for breakfast Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Last week, I let them eat it every morning just so I could SURVIVE! Luckily, we’re back to regular eating now! I can’t even imagine the menu you’re going to have to plan out with that many different tastes! I haven’t been into Kohl’s in years- need to stop by to find some pants, too! Thanks for sharing!
