What's Up Wednesday-1.27.21

I'm linking up today with Sheaffer and Shay for What's Up Wednesday.  

What We're Eating This Week...

After a weekend of fast food and pizza delivery, a week of real food is so refreshing!

Monday-Bang Bang Shrimp and Trader Joe's veggies
{My review of the shrimp was-we REALLY liked the Bang Bang sauce but the breading or crust of the shrimp was made with corn starch and that wasn't my favorite part.  I'm sure it would have been better if I'd pan-fried it but we air fried it to be a little healthier.  We'll definitely make it again but next time I might just add some olive oil, salt, and pepper to air fry them.  I'll skip the whole breading process.  My kids like shrimp just baked or air fried.  We'll top it with the sauce and I think it'll be just as good and easier!}

Tuesday-Grilled Chicken with veggies
Last night we had grilled chicken with veggies.  I prefer my chicken EXTRA crispy.  Tab would say that I like it almost burned and my chef delivered my requests.

I've been making this fish recipe for years. It's one of our favorite ways to eat fish.  I'm looking at you, heavy cream.  ;)  It's what's for dinner tonight.

Yes, yes, yes!  Tacos are my FAVORITE food.  Tomorrow-I'll throw the chicken in the slow cooker and whip these up in no time.

Friday-TAKEOUT!!
Kitchen will be closed on Friday evening.

What I'm Reminiscing About...
With Spring Break around the corner, I keep reminiscing about Spring Breaks from the past.  This was us in Beaver Creek in 2019.  SO MUCH FUN!

What I'm Loving...
I'm like a broken record with this.  I know.  I know.  But I truly am loving this plan, The Bible Recap!  If you want to read more about it, you can see this post.

What We've Been Up To...
 I've been in the car a lot lately carpooling kids to and from all the places.

Nixon and Tab went on a little ski trip over the weekend.

What I'm Dreading...
I just caught a glimpse of our outdoor refrigerator...there is something that's WAY old in there.  It's on my to do list this week to clean out.  Dreading that for sure!

What I'm Working On...
I've been working on Walt Disney World vacations!  Things have been busy, busy over at The Mix and Match Travel Agency offices.  Lots of clients are reaching out to head to Walt Disney World.  If this is you, please head to the website to get more information!  We'd love to plan your family a magical vacation!

What I'm Excited About...
☝☝☝☝☝☝
All the new clients I'm talking to about upcoming Walt Disney World vacations!  I didn't realize how much I was missing this until it picked back up at the start of the year.  I've really been missing working with clients and I'm so glad it's back.  Because of that, I'm only blogging three days this week so I'll be off tomorrow and then back with Friday Favorites.

What I'm Watching/Reading...
I've been watching The Bachelor with Matt, but am a little behind this week.

And I need a great new book to start.  I took a reading hiatus that accidentally has lasted approximately nine months.  It is time to get back into reading!  Let me know if you've read something fabulous you recommend!

What I'm Listening To...
Kids playing outside...one of my FAVORITE sounds!

What I'm Wearing...
Loft has been getting all the love lately.  This sweater is one I can wear on other occasions but is perfect around Valentine's Day!

Yes-to this quilted sweatshirt! {50% off with code, HURRY}

Give me all the bright pink right now!  {on sale with code, HURRY}

And this simple heart tee {50% off with code, HURRY} was perfect under my favorite denim jacket.

What I'm Doing This Weekend...
Our school added a few at-home learning days to our spring calendar so we actually have a long weekend at home BUT one of those days will be school at home.

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month...
VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

I'm sure our class parties will look different and there will be no school dance this year, but we'll do our best to make our day feel a little extra special.  If you're a room mom and in need of some ideas, I did this post around this time last year to help us all out!

Thanks for reading today!
XO
