What's Up Wednesday #15

I’m linking up for What’s Up Wednesday today!


What we're eating this week:

I made a batch of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to take to a friend and you’d better believe we are enjoying the extras around here! I didn’t have enough chocolate chips, so I tossed in some white chocolate baking chips as well and it ended up being a very good decision if I do say so myself.


What I'm reminiscing about:

I just backed up my iPhone and all of my pictures — looking back at Fletcher’s first few weeks has made me realize how much he has changed!

What I'm loving:

These beautiful spring days with sunlight streaming through our house and going for long walks with Fletcher.


What we've been up to:

I’ve been trying to be really intentional about my days with Fletcher since these are the last few weeks of just he and I before I go back to work. I recently read something that talked about the importance of using everyday tasks as a way to connect with your child — even something as mundane as a diaper changing or putting socks on. Fletcher has really changed a lot since he hit the two month mark, so it’s been really fun to talk to him and have him babble back, have him interact with us when we play with toys and books, and watch him experience things for the first time (such as being outside on a sunny day, etc.).

What I'm dreading:

Spring always goes so fast and summer isn’t my favorite only because of the crazy humidity we experience here.


What I'm working on:

Wrapping things up before going back to work — purchasing some new clothes, going through my closet, getting rid of items throughout the house that we aren’t using, etc.

What I'm excited about:
I’m just really enjoying this transition to spring that just occurred in the last couple of weeks — I feel like my motivation for everything is so much higher, ha ha.

What I'm watching / reading:
The usual shows, plus I just started Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists and The Act. The PLL spinoff show is just okay so far but I’m super intrigued with The Act!

What I'm listening to:

I recently added a bunch of songs from my sister’s workout playlist to my own and it’s been so motivating to have a great playlist while at the gym. I’m also loving Lara Casey’s new podcast while I go for walks outside, too.

What I'm wearing:

I wear a lot of athleisure items during the week since we have been going for a long walk each day, but usually jeans and a cardigan if I go somewhere else.

What I'm doing this weekend:

Soaking up as much time outside as possible!


What I'm looking forward to next month:

Lots of stroller walks on these gorgeous spring days! Also, Fletcher’s first Easter — I can’t wait to assemble his little Easter basket!

What else is new:

We have finally gotten around to shopping for items for our home — this past year has been so crazy busy so furnishing our house has definitely been on the back burner. We recently purchased a table for our entry way and a dining room table as well! It feels good to be making progress in this area — next up, we are in search of a dining room rug, dining chairs, and a rug for our entry way.

Bonus question: What’s your favorite Easter side dish?
Usually just some sort of spring-ish salad or something!
