Good morning!! I can’t believe how slow this week is going! Like is it really only Wednesday…? I have been feeling like a total Grandma, no offense to all you lovely Grandma’s, but I have been in bed asleep by 8 or 9 most nights and up between 5 or 6. Who am I!? I used to be a total night owl, like up past 2 am! I am so sleepy by the time I get the kids to sleep around 6:30 or 7 I can barely get my face washed and pjs on! This mama is tired.
Okay that’s enough of my sleep schedule.. boring I know. Let’s talk about What’s Up Wednesday!

What we’re eating this week:
We have completed one month of clean healthy eating and it feels so good!! I have made some huge leaps and met my goals I set for the month. It’s amazing how great I feel, and how my clothes are fitting differently just by changing my diet. So this week we are sticking to healthy recipes. We have mostly been focusing on meats, veggies, and fruits! When Jules gets home on the weekend we like to make a quick trip to Costco and get some fresh meat! We love the prime steaks + we usually have chicken and ground beef on had as well. Here are some of the recipes we love and they are all super easy!
What I’m reminiscing about:
I feel like we keep getting a glimpse of nice spring weather and then we get a full on blizzard at our house… All I can think about is the beach! Jules gets to travel to California or Vegas every week and I completely envy the sunny weather he gets to experience! Right now we are trying to decide on our wedding location (somewhere on a beach) and all I can think about is our trip to the Bahamas (three years ago!) and our trip to Hawaii last year. You can find my post all about our Hawaii trip HERE and HERE.
Beautiful sunny beaches, turquoise water, tiny chubby babies, and the best tan I have had in 3 years. Take me back!!!
What I’m loving:
I am totally loving my Rodan & Fields products! I told myself I wasn’t going to buy into this line and then I got the Lash Boost serum and that was it! I absolutely love what it has done to my lashes (and hopefully brows)! I have been able to use the same tube for 3 months so this totally justifies the cost + I have never had healthier lashes. I recently started using the Self Tanner from the Rodan & Fields line and again, I’m obsessed. It is so easy to use and who doesn’t like having a little color on their skin!?
Lashes with mascara.
Lashes with no mascara!
What we’ve been up to:
We have been pretty much home bound trying to get healthy!! My poor kiddos and Jules have been under the weather since the 2nd of January! I feel like we are finally tackling this yuckiness, but we still aren’t 100%. In the meantime I have been planning some fun stuff for the blog and the kids have been playing with play-doh A LOT!
What I’m dreading:
Jules and I made a goal to start consistently working out in the month of February, and well, that’s tomorrow… So here I go! I have the BBG App on my phone so I am going to try and stick to that every week! My plan was to wake up before the kiddos and get my workout in, but they wake up between 5 and 6… I’m thinking I will have to workout in the evening now.
What I’m working on:
Jax is turning F I V E in a couple weeks so I have been trying to get all of his party stuff completed!! This year he wanted a Monster Jam party which is fitting since this kid is obsessed with all things Monster Jam! He has over 50 Monster Jams and he can’t wait to go to the Monster Jam show at the end of the month!! You can follow along with my Pinterest board HERE! I am trying to keep things simple. I say that every time…
What I’m excited about:
I recently finished my first video for my YouTube Channel!! It was so scary and so exciting! I have been brainstorming ever since, of all the videos and ideas for my channel!!! The first video is a Hair Tutorial on how I get my beach waves you can view it HERE
Let me know if you have any requests for videos! I would love to hear from you!
What I’m watching/reading:
Some friends and I started a “Book Club” this year, which I am so excited about! I do not read nearly as much as I should!! I have been way more intentional with my time and it has allowed me to have time to read. This month we are reading “The Magnolia Story” and I have found an all new love for Chip and Joanna… Is that even possible!? I haven’t been binge watching any Netflix series, but I have been keeping up with the Bachelor, I know, yuck. I am not a fan of Arie, but I am totally team Becca M. I think she is adorable and I think I am cheering her on even more after the whole age difference scene! Jules and I are 13 years apart and I love every bit of our relationship!!
What I’m listening to:
Mostly Monster Jam songs and all the Transformer and Superhero YouTube videos… Can you say #boymom! I have been trying to find some podcasts to listen to, send me all your suggestions!!! I have been listening to Ed Sheeran Pandora on repeat all day long. Does his music ever get old???
I mean those lyrics…
What I’m wearing:
At the beginning of the month I decided to bring my closet back to the basics! I have been wearing all the sneakers + give me all the athleisure outfits!! I mean if I am going to be chasing two tiny humans around all the time I might as well be comfy doing it!! These are some of my favorite outfits lately!
What I’m doing this weekend:
I would really like to get out of the house! Maybe a trip up to the McCall Winter Carnival for the day. It really all depends on how well everyone is feeling!! Oh wait… isn’t the Superbowl this weekend??? I guess we should probably watch that too!
What I’m looking forward to next month:
Next month as in March??? I mean it’s basically February right? I am totally looking forward to my Birthday!! Jules and I are planning a birthday getaway, we are thinking Vegas, and I am so excited! It will almost a year since we did our kid free Hawaii trip so I think we are due! I can’t wait!!
What else is new:
Nothing! I feel like life has been pretty mellow and I am totally okay with that!! I know come March life is going to get pretty busy, so I am just soaking up the next month in all it’s relaxing glory!!!
