What's up Wednesday May 2021

The last Wednesday of the month means it's time for What's Up Wednesday with Sheaffer & Shay.  I can't believe that May is already over and the end of the school year is so near.  We can not wait to go back to sleeping in and having no set schedule for a few months! 
What We're Eating This Week:  

A few quick and easy meals for the start of the week but as of tomorrow night I have 4 days off from cooking!  My husband and I are heading out Friday morning and the boys are all set to eat burgers, pasta and sauce, pizza, etc.  while my mother in law hangs out with them for the nice long weekend. 

What I'm Reminiscing About: We have officially been married for 20 years now!!  I had no idea when I began dating my husband at the age of 16 that we'd have spent more than 1/2 our lives together by now, raising three wonderful boys, and creating so many fantastic memories.  I always think back to our wedding and that first year of marriage when we were building our dream home... 

What I'm Loving: Healthy meals and snacks... at least I'm convincing myself that I do because I have GOT to cut back on the sugary snacks.  

Salad with chicken, peaches, and peanuts

Fruit, non-fat yogurt, 1/4 cup granola and 5 chocolate chips

What We've Been Up To: Lots of hiking and track meets, baking, seeing our friends, and getting ready for summer vacation. 

What I'm Dreading: Nothing much; maybe how busy things will be for another 2 1/2 weeks until Alec finishes up at school.

What I'm Working On: I keep making lists of things I need to work on but I haven't much gotten beyond making lists yet... 

What I'm Excited About:  The weather is finally so nice that I eat breakfast outside most days and gets lots of extra time to read throughout the day since our school day only takes about 15 minutes these days.

What I'm Watching/Reading:  Younger and Home Economics.  I've also started watching all the Friends episodes over again since my boys got me the boxed series for Mother's day. 

My mother's day gifts

I read 10 Fantastic books this month (see synopsis here)

What I'm Listening to: The house being built just 2 doors down (that my mother in law will be moving into). 

What I'm Wearing: Still lots of long sleeves and pants! But I am slowly getting to add in some capri pants and short sleeves along with my flip flops.

What I'm Doing This Weekend:   My husband and I are going away just the two of us to celebrate our 20 year anniversary. 

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month: Getting to see my sister, brother- in- law, nephews, and aunt/ uncle! 

What Else is New: We are loving seeing all the birds and hummingbirds at our feeders.
