What's Up Wednesday (on a Thursday)

Linking up with Shay for What's Up Wednesday...

What We're Eating This Week:
Brad smoked some chicken, steaks and salmon on Sunday, so we've been (or I've) eating through that.  I've had steamed veggies with some kind of meat on top everyday for lunch, SO good!

What I'm Reminiscing About:
Our trip in December to Duluth.  I so badly want another weekend away, just the two of us.  I absolutely love the north shore, and hope we can get away this summer...

What I'm Loving:
My life.  Just about every morning I sit there amazed at where I am at in my life.  I have an amazing husband that loves me unconditionally, 3 beautiful girls that keep me on my toes, and amazing friends and family.  I wouldn't be where I am today without a lot of praying!  There isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank God, not only for the big stuff, but all the little stuff too.  Like coffee, I have for real thanked God for inventing coffee, no lie.

What We've Been Up To:

She's so fun to watch, I'm hoping she really digs softball, because I think she could be really good at it!

What I'm Dreading:

One week from today Rachel will "graduate" from 8th grade.  She will be leaving behind our amazing little school and heading off to a new high school.  I am terrified of her being a freshmen.  Deep down I know she will be ok, but I might need that week off, just sayin...

What I'm Working On:
Trying not to fall apart, see above.....just kidding.  We are working on getting things ready for Brad's and my joint 40th birthday party on Saturday night!  We are having it at our favorite bar in town, the LaPlayette (we had our wedding reception here and it's owned by Brad's cousin) and have about 80-100 coming.  Holy crap.  We're having a friend smoke some pork for sandwiches and will have some sides to go along with it.  I am SO excited!

What I'm Excited About:
Summer.  Even though it is going to be craaaazy busy, I am ready for morning porch sitting with Brad and coffee and evening porch sitting with cocktails!  Oh, and the boat rides, grilling on the patio...

What I'm Watching/Reading:
I just finished 2 of Melanie Shankles books, and loved them!  I am now reading Beach Street Bakery, a book I won in a giveaway (Thanks Maren!), I'll let you know how they are.  I started watching a documentary about Franklin Roosevelt on PBS and it is so good, I need to find the first 2 parts of the series though...

What I'm Listening To:
Pandora at work.  Currently Stevie Nicks.

What I'm Wearing:
These skinny jeans are my favorites! So, so comfy and I don't get the muffin top because they sit higher on your waist.  Also am loving my Vince Camuto nude flats.  They took a good 2 weeks to break in, but now I love them!

What I'm Doing This Weekend:
See above, it's our big birthday party!

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:
The second week of June we are going to the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells for 4 days.  Brad has a conference, so we are making a mini vacation out of it!  So excited!

What Else is New:
Not much, just trying to stay afloat!
