My blog has moved! I am in the process of incorporating it into my online shop and rebranding. My new site will be called "Lexi Lately" and this is the first post on this new platform. Yay!
Today I'm linking up with my girls Shay and Sheaffer for another round of "What's Up Wednesday"! These sweet gals started WUW, a little link up party where we all share what’s going on in our crazy lives right now. We talk about food, family, what we’re wearing, what we’re doing, what we’re watching and a little bit of everything else all in one post! Let's dive in!!
It's been awhile since I've linked up with these cute gals and I've really missed it! A lot has happened since the last time I did a "What's Up Wednesday"....like I'M PREGNANT!! My husband, Shawn, and I have been trying to start our little family for over three years and after lots of prayers, some hormone therapy and putting more faith in the Lord...it's finally happening for us! I'm planning on doing several posts about our experience and journey later on, but there are some fun little details throughout this post. To say we're thrilled is an understatement!
WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
Guys, I've been doing so much better at meal planning and prepping! It takes a ton of stress off of me and makes my nights run so much better. On our menu this week is Asian Rice Bowls, Cauliflower Pizzas, BBQ Ranch Pulled Pork Taquitos and Garlic Ginger Sticky Pork. I can't wait to try all these new recipes and let you know what I think!
WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
The adorable baby shower my mom and mother-in-law threw for me this past weekend in Utah! It was the cutest thing. I felt so loved and spoiled!
WHAT I’M LOVING:
I plan on doing a separate post about this and some of my other current faves, but I have been obsessed with the new purple shampoo and conditioner I got from ULTA. It's AMAZING! Seriously, I've had so many people ask me if I got my hair done. Nope! I just tried a new purple hair care set and I'll never go back!
WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Shawn and I just got back from a fun weekend trip to Utah. My little sister just got back from an 18 month church service mission to Puerto Rico so we wanted to see her. While we were there my mom and mother-in-law threw me a baby shower and it was so much fun! Baby girl and I are definitely feeling the love and were so grateful to have such amazing friends and family show up to spoil us! It was so great to be home for a long weekend and see both of our families. Much needed R&R!
WHAT I’M DREADING:
Nothing at the moment!
WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
I've been doing a ton of fun little projects for baby girl's nursery! Shawn actually made her a crib and surprised me for Christmas. I was blown away! He designed and made it without me knowing anything. I think he has a secret hidden talent in wood working. So I've been working on priming and painting that, making some decor items for the nursery (like the rainbow wall hanging pictured below) and getting all of her cute little clothes washed and organized. Can't wait to meet her!!!
WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
So I've decided to design and make a baby book for our sweet little girl instead of buying one. I want it to be exactly what I want and something personal and specialized that has meaning. I've been gathering ideas and can't wait to get started on it!
WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
I started all of the "Chicago" series years ago, but fizzled out after awhile. So I've recently gone back and got caught up on Chicago P.D. and now I'm getting caught up on Chicago Fire. Anyone else like going back and catching up on shows after quite a long break? No, just me haha?
I need to be way better about reading, I just haven't had too much time for it lately. The next book on my list is "P.S. I Still Love You" from the "To All the Boy's I've Loved Before" series. A little more on the educational side, I've also been researching/reading/studying breastfeeding 101 and things I need to know before labor and delivery. As always, tips and advice is welcomed!
WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
I've been listening to lots of baby and pregnancy podcasts trying to get ready for when this little one comes! I haven't found any that I'm super obsessed with or absolutely love, so if y'all have suggestions please send them my way. This mama needs all the help she can get!
WHAT I’M WEARING:
I'm in that weird phase where my normal pants are getting to be too tight, but maternity pants are too big and won't stay up haha. So I've been wearing dresses, leggings, cute joggers and lots of transitional pieces. If anyone has recommendations I'm all ears!
WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
When we were in Utah this past weekend, my dad sent me home with the huge Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts set and I can't wait to dive in and start building. So if anyone is looking for me this weekend, you'll know where to find this muggle!
WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Shawn is taking my birthday weekend off work and I have some family coming into town so we gonna partayyyy! On the list is a day trip to Waco and trash can rice bowl from Club Sandwich and birthday BBQ dinner at Hard Eight. Yes please! I'm also going to the Dan + Shay concert here in Dallas with a friend and can't wait!
WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
That’s it for now!! Hope you all have an awesome Wednesday!
