Hope this week finds you healthy & happy! Today is my first official What’s Up Wednesday of 2018 & it’s officially the last day of the first month of 2018 – eek! Time just flies. One Wednesday a month I share random and fun ‘What Up’s’ in our life hence the What’s Up Wednesday theme! So here is to my first WUW.. .. ..
MONDAY | Angel Hair Pasta with Blush Meat Sauce aside Butter Dill Green Beans
TUESDAY | We dined out at Culvers. We went to the St. Cat’s Boys Basketball game so we just picked up something on the go!
WEDNESDAY | Sirloin Roast with Potatoes & Carrots aside Homemade Cornbread
THURSDAY | Taco’s & Pink Beans
FRIDAY | Baked Tilapia & A Garden Salad (optional: Baked Potato with Sea Salt)
SATURDAY| Rocky Rococo’s Pizza (Pizza Party)
SUPERBOWL SUNDAY| I think we are going to have a Mini Puerto-Rican Feast. We originally were going to graze on stuff like Coconut Shrimp, Sausage & Cheese Platter, Cocktail Meatballs, Queso & Chips, Brownies & Pulled BBQ Pork Sandwhiches with our fave Kruncher’s Sweet Hawaiian Onion Chips but since then Will and I changed our pace towards more of a Latin layout.
I honestly haven’t been reminiscing about much but I have been considering how I have grown so much from going through so much and I have just had an overwhelming peace.
I also think we have been so busy and full of the goodness of life that I am more focused on the “NOW” and “Looking Ahead” so much to look forward to. More of that #CarpeDiem (seize the day) mindset.
Living Life Everyday to the Fullest! #CarpeDiem
I know it’s kind of far off but I can’t help but think about how cold spring is. I think we have either 49 or 48 days until spring but spring here in WI is still typically so chilly, cold & rainy! Other than that nothing else is really on a dread list!
WORK. WORK. WORK.
I have been working a lot at Work! Haha! Finally caught up and it feels so good!
This weekend we are hosting a little Pizza Party for our Boys & Girl’s Basketball Teams that we coached this year, to celebrate the end of the season. I am excited to have our teams color cards for hospitalized kids. . .
Cards for Hospitalized Kids(CFHK) is an internationally recognized charitable organization that spreads hope, joy & magic to hospitalized kids across America through uplifting, handmade cards.
Anyone can get involved with us, from anywhere. Individuals and groups across the United States, and world, donate time and creativity to make handmade cards and send them to us for distribution in hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses across the nation.
Over 100,000 kids in hospitals in all 50 states have received cards from this organization. You can also get involved and help brighten the days of as many hospitalized kids as possible. More Info: (www.cardsforhospitalizedkids.com)
I haven’t been reading much still 😦 we have been busy ya’ll! But I was sharing with Will how I miss my time to read and how I want to have that time with the kids where we are just reading outside of their 20minutes a day. He had the most fantabulous idea!
READING IDEA FROM THE HUBBS. . .
He said we should book 1-2 hours a week where we take the kids to a coffee shop we all bring a book and we just read! I mean what a sweet idea! I love little things like this. He was so not a reader a year ago ya’ll. I think he was kind of ‘into’ how the kids and I were so ‘in’ to books & reading! #thisexcitesme #loveUS
We have been watching The Brave! (love that show) 911, is… so-so I’m watching it but not sure if I ‘love’ it yet and same with The Four, I’m watching it but not sure I’m all in quite yet.
My Husband watches This is US but quite honestly I’m not so attached to it for some reason!?! Is something wrong with me? I maybe loved episodes 1-3 and then it was just okay for me. I do love how Randall is a positive strong African American Male Role on TV but Kev is so dramatic and I don’t connect with him and Kate also is some what the same.
I have been listening to Mariah Carey & Bruno Mars… but mostly all my Mariah Carey!
This Flare Sleeve Sweater Dress by Cotton Emporium (here) is so amazingly comfortable and the color is so juicy! Highly Recommend + it’s 40% off currently! So I also snagged it in Burgundy – but have yet to wear this one. Paired Well with the Steve Madden Molly Leopard Bootie (here)
I have mentioned to you before that I love Zella Live in Leggings and I do! I just purchased the Zella Live-In High Waist Leggings (here) in a laminate faux leather as well as the Zella Autumn High Waist Moto Ankle Leggings (here) in Grey Graphite. They have a pretty Coral Color also but I opted for the Grey which are also 40% off right now!
Watching our little man play in his last game of city league basketball & a Pizza Party with both of the Teams we coached this year. I am so proud of our girls, We ended the season ‘UNDEFEATED’ and we got them little trophies for Saturday’s Party! I’m excited to present the trophies to each of these sweet girls. (missing one of my girls in this pic) 😦
In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you

Sofia will have her stitches removed this coming Monday from her procedure last week and we are pumped to give her a bath & to not have her in the ‘cone’ so much!
I put one of Mackenzie’s tank tops on her this week when we were home to help with the disturbance of that cone 😦 🙂 haha, and she was actually pretty cute in it! haha. So looking forward to that!
