What's Up Wednesday #9

Happy Wednesday Friends! Today I am linking up with Mix and Match FamilySheaffer Told Me To and The Larson Lingo for the What's Up Wednesday Post.  What's Up Wednesday occurs on the last Wednesday of every month and it is a fun list of questions getting ready for the upcoming month!

What We're Eating this Week

Last night I went to Big Wave Sushi with Caroline and her sister, Kate.  I absolutely love Big Wave Sushi and look forward to going there every time I have plans to go.  Right now I won't be going for at least a month and I am a bit sad. 

What I'm Reminiscing About

April 23 would have been my Grandma Jackie's birthday.  Every year around her birthday, I find myself a little sad because she was such a huge part of my life.  However, it is also fitting that on her birthday I saw a Cardinal - her favorite bird.  It almost felt like she was sending me a sign from heaven (at least I would like to believe that she was).

What I'm Loving

The weather here in Michigan is finally leaning toward Spring! Monday evening we had our first big rain with thunder and I am a happy camper.  I love thunder storms and I love the sound of the rain hitting the windows and the roof.  I also love what the rain means for us as the plants start to wake back up and we get to enjoy all of their beauty.  

What We've Been Up To

The past few weeks have been filled with parties, family, friends and other fun and exciting events.  I am loving how much time I have been able to dedicate to things I enjoy versus things I just put up with.  We also have been working hard to get all of our paperwork in order for the closing on our home.  I cannot wait to close and to finally own my very own home. 

What I'm Dreading

Packing.  I hate packing.  That being said, I am happy to be able to have the time to go through all of our stuff and get rid of all of the things that we do not need anymore and can reduce, reuse and recycle.

What I'm Working On

Mainly packing stuff and getting things organized for the house closing.  Everything exciting and boring all at once.

What I'm Looking Forward To

My birthday is in a few weeks and I am hoping to schedule a small party for us to go to another escape room like we did with Nick and Kevin a few months back! I am open to any other suggestions for fun things to do for a birthday too! So share away!

What I'm Watching/Reading

Right now I am loving The Selection Series and have been working my way through the books!
I have finished reading The Selection and I am currently reading The Elite.  To check out my other favorite books, check my out on Goodreads

What I'm Listening To

Over the weekend I listened to my Mumford and Sons radio station basically for eight hours and I love it! The music is upbeat and keeps me going when I do not feel like cleaning or packing.

What I'm Wearing

Finding pants for me that I can wear to work sometimes proves to be a difficult task, but Old Navy totally hit the mark for me with these pants.  They have a little bit of stretch to them and fit very nicely on my figure.  Right now I have the Robbie Red and the Black/White and love them for work.  I am hoping to buy a pair of navy and solid black here shortly.  

What I'm Doing this Weekend

This weekend we both have Eye Doctor Appointments on Saturday then I am going to a Norwex party at my mom's house.  After that, Sarah is going to come over to help me start packing up the guest bedroom so we have room to start moving all of the other boxes into the guest bedroom as we start to pack.  

Bonus: What are you giving for Mother's Day?

For Mother's Day, we are taking our moms to brunch like we did last year.  It will be so much fun and I am looking forward to it!
