What's Up Wednesday- April 2021

 




Hi Friends!  WOW!  It is the end of April already...how did this happen?  Well if you  know me, you know I am not complaining....bring on the sun...the spring...the outdoor time....who is with me?

 

Linking up with Sheaffer and Shay HERE and sharing What's Up With Us!

 

 

What We're Eating This Week

 

This is one of those weeks of "making do." It is school vacation week here in NH so we are keeping things simple and heading out of town towards the end of the week so the kitchen is essentially closed this week!  Here is what the week is looking like:

 

Monday- Leftovers (Chicken Broccoli and Ziti for Kids and Wings for M&D)

 

Tuesday- Kids at Mimi and Papa's for first sleepover since before COVID!  M&D heading out on a date night- woohoo!

 

Wednesday- Gluten Free Chicken, Broccoli and Ziti- Kayla and Marshall are coming to stay while we are away- they will be watching Remi and housesitting :) (using my recipe and substituting gluten free pasta in)

You can find the traditional recipe HERE

 


Thursday and Friday- Dinner Out as we are on VACATION- SOOOOO NEEDED!



What I'm Reminiscing About


Past April Vacations and how much fun they have been...Florida...Niagara Falls....Pennsvlvania Dutch Country...Road Trips chalk full of fun memories...and looking forward to finally getting away again to make more memories with our girls!






What I'm Loving


Longer Days....Praise God....give me all of the SUN!




What We've Been Up To



Rob and I both got fully vaccinated!



We got to fully enjoy Holy Week and Easter with our families- so grateful to be able to celebrate together again!





I have been really enjoying working out at the gym but getting outside to walk with friends and my hubby still remains a fave!







Speaking of the gym...it finally moved to the new facility and it is overwhelming!




We have been seizing the moment any day that turns out to be super warm and sunny and enjoyed dinner outside on a balmy 70 degree evening a few weeks ago!


We enjoyed seeing Rob's new band outside too!





Remi continues to be our little baby that we shower with attention and love....he started school...thank God!  We can't wait to walk him with him not pulling and choking himself!  Sigh....





Eva started softball and is OBSESSED- she can't get enough!



We celebrated Lea's 50th Birthday in Portsmouth!



and we celebrated Sweet Eva with her friends...



 

and then her family! (and JFK) ;)




What I'm Dreading


Not really anything...just trying to balance it all right now and as things get busier, I get stressed but trying to keep things in prospective




What I'm Working On


Balance- Health- Family-Work

 


 

What I'm Excited About

 

Being in the sun on a beach tomorrow- can't come fast enough! 

 


 

What I'm Watching/Reading

 

Good Girls, A Million Little Things, Greys Anatomy, This Is Us and Big Sky....oh and I am also binging Real Housewives of NYC- finally gave in...yup...on Season 3 now! 

 


My two books for April were a Self-Help Book on avoiding toxic relationships and then "Hello Summer"by Mary Kay Andrews...really enjoying this one and will finish it on vacation!  Perfect Beach Read!

 


What I'm Listening To

 

I made a play list for Lea's birthday chalk full of the dance tunes that she loves and I have been enjoying listening to it

 


 

What I'm Wearing

 

 Lots of workout gear.....biz caz 1-2 times/week....and more fun stuff on the weekends.....can't wait to bring out the Lilly this coming weekend!

 



 

What I'm Doing This Weekend

 

Spending as much time outside...in the sun...in the water....dining al fresco with my little fam and the BFF's fam...cannot wait to get away and decompress!

 

 

What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month

 

Celebrating some besties's bdays and Memorial Day Weekend...the Start of Summer! 

 

What Else Is New?

 

I am heading back to my office on Tuesday and cannot wait...I drove in yesterday to grab a key as we moved....I got really emotional on my drive down...our business is based on people and relationships and I have missed that human connection so much...I love talking with people and looking them in the eye and collaborating...can't wait to get that back!
