what's up wednesday

Linking up with JessiMelSheaffer, and Shay!

What we're eating this week:

Since I'm currently dairy-free we have not been eating cheese and I have the sads. This stir fry is helping to ease the pain:

Our all-time favorite stir fry

We also made this recipe yesterday for dinner and it was great.

Hoping to make this lo mein (modified to be vegetarian) tonight.

What I'm reminiscing about:

I can't believe how much Edith has changed in a year. It's rocking my world in a big way.

What I'm loving:

This special buy from Aldi.
The weather!

What we've been up to:

Our house is being re-sided starting today! We also replaced the front window and got a new window treatment for it:

What I'm dreading:

The only thing I don't enjoy about gardening is trying to keep up with the weeds and fighting things like Japanese beetles. I'm hoping to stay on top of it this summer so it doesn't get too out of hand, but with three young kids I'm not hedging my bets.

What I'm working on:
This parenting hack for a $20 sandbox.

What I'm excited about:

Our big neighborhood yard sale is in May and I can't wait to purge so many things from our house. We already have piles of sales items all over the place and they get larger every day. I want to feel like I can breathe again!

What I'm watching/reading:

We started Bill Nye Saves the World last night. I admittedly only half watched it so it may not have been as captivating as I had hoped...

What I'm listening to:

What I'm wearing:

Skinny jeans, Toms or Chucks, and t-shirts.

What I'm doing:

Honestly? Running on survival mode. I cut out dairy and we switched Etta to Alimentum, but she went on a formula strike and was refusing it. I took her back to the pediatrician yesterday to see if he had any insight (saw our regular ped this time) and he said Alimentum tastes horrible. He recommended dialing it back to a non-hypoallergenic one for a few weeks to see what happens. The good news is she took the new formula no problem. The bad news is she wakes up every 45-60 minutes at night because of it.

What I'm looking forward to next month:

Consistent sleep (I hope).


  1. mmm the stir-fry might have just made my decision easier on what to have for lunch today! Love that Crowder song as well girl! Happy Wednesday! xo

  2. That stir fry looks delicious! YUM!
    $20 Sandbox hack is genius!
    Thanks for linking up with us for What's Up Wednesday! :)

  3. I want to try that stir-fry recipe. We are not vegetarians but we like some vegetarian meals...I dont feel like messing with meat sometimes.

    1. I'm not a vegetarian either and it totally hits the spot! My husband and I were both shocked when we tried it the first time by just how tasty it was.
