What's Up Wednesday {March}

Happy Hump Day, friends! Time for a monthly round-up of life around here!

1. What we're eating this week
Trav has been on a Mediterranean diet kick, and I've coincidentally been craving Mediterranean food, so he's been cooking up lots of yummy things from that area of the world. We've had some delicious salmon, chicken kabobs, chicken salad wraps, and lots of couscous. I don't have any recipes because Trav has been making a lot of them up himself, but everything is SO yummy!

2. What I'm reminiscing about

Looking back through old Easter pics, I found these from my absolute favorite photo shoot I ever subjected Ella to!

I tried it last year with Lucas, but seeing as he was about 9 months older than Ella was when I took hers, he decided he was too old for this garbage and hated every second!

3. What I'm loving

That spring finally got its act together and it's FINALLY supposed to warm up! I have been freezing over here!!!

4. What we've been up to

5. What I'm dreading

All of the pollen and the spring cleaning that comes along with it. Our screened-in porch is just a disaster and needs a good power-washing. I am dreading that. 

6. What I'm working on

Ummm, does growing a human count?! Ha! I've also been having lots of fun doing my online tutoring gig that I just started a few weeks ago! The kids have all been super cute and eager to learn! 

7. What I'm excited about

Warmer weather!!! More park play dates, spring clothes, grilling out, I want all of it! 

8. What I'm watching/reading

Still watching the train wrecks that are Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules. I am currently reading The Girl With Seven Names, which was actually recommended by Shay

It is really good, and I have a hard time putting it down every night! It is all about a girl who escaped from North Korea...and maybe y'all will think I am totally living in a bubble here, but I had no idea how backwards and outdated things were in that country! It is a really interesting read for sure. 

9. What I'm listening to

This is going to sound so dumb, but a while ago, my fav Emily Ley posted something about silence and how sometimes we need to just turn all that noise OFF. So I've been turning down the radio in my car (unless Ella is requesting to hear a certain song), and just talking to my kids and enjoying the quiet. It's been really nice!

10. What I'm wearing

Miraculously, still not maternity clothes although they are prob coming super soon (like in the next week or so). I am SOOOO over my winter clothes, ps. 

11. What I'm doing this weekend

 One of my best friends from high school is stopping to visit us on her way to the beach with her family! We are also planning on taking the kids to see the Easter Bunny, and of course celebrating Easter on Sunday! 
Here's a few pics of my kids with the creepy EB in past years!

12. What I'm looking forward to next month


13. What else is new

Not much, just suffering a little bit of seasonal allergies along with everyone else here in Charlotte (fun fact: did you know that Charlotte is the one of the worst city in the country for seasonal allergies?! Its true. They are awful here!)

Bonus question: What is your favorite Easter tradition?

Getting dressed up in new spring clothes (kids' Easter clothes are my FAVORITE!) and going to church! Look at these sweet babies from last year!
