What's Up Wednesday - 2.24.21 – Lexi Lately

What's Up Wednesday - 2.24.21


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!!
 
WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
Egg White & Ham Breakfast Sandwiches 
 
WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Along with the crazy storm we got here came some beautiful snow and we totally took advantage of it! We went sledding! I haven't been sledding in years. Brynleigh even went! My sister, her hubby and their kids came along too. Then we warmed up with some hot cocoa and a movie. I'm glad some fun memories were able to come out of such a devastating week!
 
WHAT I’M LOVING:
That my husband is safe! Two weeks ago, right as the weather started turning nasty here in Texas, Shawn was in a really bad car accident. 
 
WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Surviving a freak winter storm here in Texas! I'm sure it was all over the news, but Texas had a huge storm that completely shut down the state. We lost power, water, cell service and our house flooded. Thankfully, the damage was fairly minimal and our landlords are taking care of it. It was such a rough time for so many people, it was heartbreaking!
 
WHAT I’M DREADING:
Our electricity bill next month haha! Apparently the wholesale cost of electricity skyrocketed during our crazy storm last week and consumer bills could be in the 1000s of dollars. Not looking forward to that at all! Yikes!
 
WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Shawn and I are finally getting around to building our bedroom dresser! Here is a rough mock up of what it will look like. Follow along on my Instagram stories (@lexipjones) for updates!
 
WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
The phase that Bryn is in right now! She's so fun! She's rolling all over the place, chatting up a storm and the best part...she's mimicking us and it's hilarious! If we shake our heads and wiggle our bodies, she does it back and it's adorable. I love this developmental stage that she's at and am just soaking it all in!
  
WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
Shawn and I just binged the first season of "The Crew" on Netflix. It's a sitcom with Kevin James and Freddie Stroma. I was hesitant and didn't think I'd like it, but it was so funny!
 
WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Still listening to "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" on Audible. I usually just have it on when Bryn and I are driving around town, so it takes awhile to get through each book haha.
 
WHAT I’M WEARING:
Haha last week I was in snow boots, gloves and a parka, but this week I'm in shorts and a t-shirt! Jokes aside, I really haven't been wearing anything special or cute because I've just been home. I am excited about some clothes I just ordered though! I got these cute camo workout shorts!
 
WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Well the weather in Texas is supposed to be pretty rainy, so maybe I'll finally get around to building one of my Harry Potter 3D puzzles I got for Christmas! They're from Costco, but I don't know if all stores carry them. Here's a link!
  
WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
My parents, my sister and her fiance are coming out to Texas for a visit and I can't wait! We're going to play whirlyball (you gotta Google it!), have chocolate pinatas at Uncle Julio's, make a trip down to Waco and lots of other fun things. If anyone has suggestions of fun things to do in the Dallas/Fort Worth area send them my way!
 
WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Not much!
