What's Up Wednesday



It's hard to believe January is coming to an end!  I've been doing a whole lot and nothing all at the same time.  Not much to blog about in the day to day, so I thought this would be a good update!

What we're eating this week
I've been trying out several new meals from some freezer meal lists.  I want to plan some freezer meals for when Cooper comes and I've got some that we've had before and liked, but wanted some new ones.  So I've been cooking through some of them for our dinners this month to see which ones we like enough to make and freeze.  So far our favorites have been Chicken and Black Bean Enchiladas and Hot Ham and Roast Beef Sandwiches.  

What I'm reminiscing about
I've had a chance to catch up with both of these good friends this week and it's hard to believe it's been almost 10 years since we graduated from Baylor together.  We've been through a lot together over the years and now it's fun to be entering into parenthood with both of them too!

What I'm loving
I found this idea to keep a 5 year journal, so I decided to start it this year.  Basically you have a prompt for each date and you write in it every day for 5 years, but you do the same prompt each year.  So it's a good way to look back at where you were each year on that date.  It's been fun to get started and I hope to be able to keep up with it!

What we've been up to
Trying to get prepared for Cooper.  We took a preparing for childbirth class over the weekend where we got to tour the hospital and on Tuesday we went to a breastfeeding class.  So we are trying to get ready!

What I'm dreading
Nothing specific that I can think of right now

What I'm working on
In addition to all of my projects to get ready for Cooper (someday soon his nursery will be set up and I'll be ready to share all of my projects!), I've been trying to learn about my camera.  We got a Canon DSLR camera for Christmas so that we would have a nice camera for pictures in the coming years.  So I figure while I've got time I'll try to figure out how to make the most of it.  I've been following along with this blog series 31 Days to a Better Photo and I've learned so much about shooting in manual and different tips and tricks.  Looking forward to hopefully learning a lot!

What I'm excited about
Meeting my little guy in a couple of months

What I'm watching/reading
Keeping with the theme, I've been reading a lot of baby books.  I've read several about childbirth and breastfeeding and also some books about infant care.  

What I'm listening to
Mostly podcasts still.  Along with The Happy Hour, The Big Boo Cast, and the Popcast I've also added a few pregnancy podcasts into the mix that I listen to when I go on walks.

What I'm wearing
A lot of leggings and yoga pants.  And enjoying the cooler days when I can wear by Bearpaw boots because they are so comfortable.

What I'm doing this weekend
We really have no plans this weekend.  We've had a few busy weekends in a row and a few busy weekends after this one, so it'll be nice to have a weekend in the middle that's a little more laid back.

What I'm looking forward to next month
My baby shower is next month and invitations went out last week!  I'm excited about celebrating Cooper with some of my favorite people.

What else is new
Not a lot.

I have kept something similar to a 5 year journal (though it's been more than 5 years now!) and I love it :)

Can I steal this?

Sure! It's actually part of a monthly link up that some bloggers do the last Wednesday of each month. I just forgot to link to it this time :)
