What’s Up Wednesday

It’s the last week of the month and I am linking up with Sheaffer and Shay for What’s Up Wednesday! I can’t believe Monday is April 1st! Is this year flying by for anyone else?

What We’re Eating This Week

This garlic rosemary chicken recipe has been on repeat in our house over the last few months. This is the easiest recipe and so good!

I don’t measure anything when I cook but I mix fresh rosemary, garlic, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and olive oil in a mixing bowl. Coat the chicken thighs in this mixture and place in a glass baking dish or cast iron skillet. I usually top with sprigs of rosemary and lemon slices and bake at 420 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked. This pairs really well with garlic butter green beans and roasted potatoes.

We have been trying out some less processed snacks for Liam and I found this recipe from Weelicious. These cereal bars are the best! The ingredients are super simple and you can pick whichever cereal you want to make the bars.

I used Honey Nut Cheerios to make these and they have become a fan favorite in our house!

Weelicous is a great site for healthy food ideas in general but I especially love her snack ideas for kids. You can find the cereal bar link here.

What I’m Reminiscing About

This time last year, we were in Maui with our best friends! We had the best time and can’t wait to go back! My first blog posts actually recapped this trip.

What I’m Loving

Spring is here! The weather this past week has been beautiful and I am here for the 70 degree sunny weather for the short time we have it here in Texas! Our country club plants these tulips every year in the spring and they are my favorite sign that spring is upon us!

What We’ve Been Up To


We have spent a lot of time in our backyard these last couple of weeks. Liam got a new swing set as an early birthday present and he loves it! Our weekend was spent outside swinging and watching him climb and slide. I can see that this is what our summer is going to look like, a lot of playing, grilling, and movies on the patio.

What I’m Dreading

I’m not really dreading anything…except pollen. Everything is already coated in green around here! I love spring and the beautiful weather it brings but the pollen can stay away!

What I’m Working On

I’m trying really hard to get into a good morning routine. It was a goal I set for myself at the beginning of the year and I had several good weeks where I woke up early to run and spend time with the Lord before everyone else woke up.. but the cold temps and then the time change got me. I’m working on getting back into that same routine and doing it consistently. I feel so much better when I start my day this way.

I took this while running one night right after Christmas ( you can see the Christmas lights on the houses). This is my favorite thing about running in the evenings when I miss my morning runs.


What I’m Excited About

I know this is silly but Will has started taking Liam to the putting green to practice golf and I am so excited! He is the cutest thing with his little golf bag and it makes my heart happy to see my guys out there together! I realize that as Liam gets older, he may develop new interests, but for now I love that he wants to be like his daddy and that they truly have a lot of fun out there together!

What I’m Watching/Reading

Right now I’m reading Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

I am part of a book club and this is our April book selection. I’m about half way through and it is not at all what I expected but it’s really good!

What I’m Listening To

I love to listen to podcasts while I’m driving or running. Here are a few of my favorites:

The Big Boo Cast with Melanie Shankle and Sophie Hudson

That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs

The Rachel Cruze Show

The Popcast and the Bible Binge with Knox and Jamie

What I’m Wearing

90 Degree by Reflex leggings. I have been living in these lately! I don’t say this lightly, but they are very similar to my Lululemon Align leggings. You can find them on Amazon in a ton of colors!

What I’m Doing This Weekend

We don’t have a lot planned for this weekend. We are going to help my parents plant a few spring plants in their yard but otherwise I think we will be home on our back patio for the majority of the weekend if the weather allows.

What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month

Liam is turning 3! I’m looking forward to his birthday party and celebrating our (not so) little guy in April!

What Else Is New

Not a lot is new around here. We are just looking forward to summer and all of the fun that the season brings!
