What's up Wednesday?!

Happy Wednesday friends!!
I love a good link up!
And I may or may not be really nosey and love to read everything about everybody..
So linking up with Mel, Shay, and Sheaffer to bring you
What's Up Wednesday??
 
 
 
 
Here are all the questions we answer...
 

 
What We're Eating this week..
 
Well my whole plan to meal prep and everything went downhill after my one good week.. so we just fix whatever we got!
Monday we had Taco's, last night was pizza, tonight will probably be chicken alfredo... as for the rest of the week your guess is good as mine. :)
 
What I'm reminiscing about...
 All the WARM weather!! I just want some SUNSHINE and warmth!
 
This was Cody's 26th birthday last year!
 
 
What I'm loving..
 
I'm loving all the Brinley smiles I get daily. She is such a joy to be around!
unless you take her outside to play for awhile and try to get her to come inside.. shew that's when you see the Terrible Two Brinley brake out... like for a good 30 minutes straight. But you just have to LOVE this face anyway..

 
What we've been up to..
 
We haven't done much lately... just the usual day to day things, going to work, homework for myself and Hunter. Hunter's basketball on Saturday's and a lot of family time all weekend!
 
What I'm dreading..
 
I'm not dreading anything at the moment. :)
Well maybe all the homework I have due on Sunday.. but that will just work out like it always does!
 
What I'm working on..
 
Well at this moment this very long bog post that I'm so happy you have made it this far in reading!
 
But I have been working on all the homework.. these are pictures I had to take on my phone so I could always have them to go back and look for reference on my homework. Our textbook is all online and I have to have some visual for me! So I have like 20 pictures of diagrams on my camera roll.. #lifeofacollegestudent



 
 
What I'm excited about..
 
OUR BEACH TRIP THIS SUMMER!
We are heading back to Okaloosa Island!
We booked our place and we can't wait!!
Bring on the Sun. Bring on the ocean. Bring on vacation!
 
 
What I'm watching/ reading..
 
Well currently watching This is Us... But y'all know I got a different TV show on every night, not to mention my love for Nashville as I am trying to catch up on all the older seasons. Currently reading.. What She Knew. I have really slacked on my reading game this month so it's now a goal to finish that book by mid march!
 
What I'm listening too..
 
Baby.. why don't you just meet me in the middle?
Like literally on repeat in the car.. And Hunter loves it too. :)
 
What I'm wearing...
 
Well of course what mom don't live in leggings, t-shirts, and sneakers? Pretty much on repeat every day all day.. I may actually put some jeans on Friday when I have some errands to run.. :)
 
anybody else do this?
If not then I'm just posting this for a friend.. hehe
 
 
What we are doing this weekend..
 
Well of course Saturday morning we have another basketball game! We have enjoyed watching Hunter play this year he has really started to get into the game and make some points and guard his player! This week he plays one of his best buds Miller and it will be so FUN to watch!
 
 
What I'm looking forward to next month..
 
Well next week is Spring Break for my school so I will be loving all the free time I will be having away from school work!
 
What else is new..
 
Nothing else is new here! :)
 
Thanks for reading my What's Up Wednesday!
XOXO,
Steph

Monday Favorite's #7

 
Monday Favorite's instead of Friday Favorite's?
that still works right??
 
Last Friday our school's had a 2 hour delay and it was so nasty outside me and Brinley did a lot of nothing!
 
So there will be a lot of favorite's and a weekend recap so grab ya some coffee and get to reading!
 
This was last Monday when it was so pretty high was like 65 and felt just like spring!
 
I bought these super cute Sketchers Go Walks for Brinley on Monday and they are definitely a favorite this week! They also come in a few different colors! This cute blue and hot pink with stars was the only pair in her size but they are the cutest thing ever!!
 

This cutie was ready to take big brother to school on Wednesday she kept walking around yelling "CHEESE". She's a hot mess 99% of the time. 

 
Also on Wednesday we got to keep the sweet twins!
 


 
Carrson on left, Wyatt on right.
 
Saturday morning we had a basketball game to get ready for!
And these little cuties just wanted to take pictures!
 




The Lakers won their game!
 
Saturday Night we had Mexican and then had an Ice cream bar! Out of cookies, sprinkles, m&m's, and chocolate syrup all this little boy wanted was ice cream and chocolate syrup!
He was one happy boy though!


 
Brinley wanted  all the M&M's!!

 
Sunday we had the best lazy day I could of ever asked for. Washed all the bedding did a little cleaning and watched all the Nashville I could. haha I'm like obsessed with the show! If you haven't started it....RUN! Like I said before I'm watching it on SET TV an app on amazon fire stick. But I know all the season's are on HULU as well.
 
I got a bath and body works package in ..
I will have to say the BEST spring/summer scent is
Watermelon Lemonade
And this scent is only $12.95 right now online! These 3 wick candles are amazing! They will have your whole house smelling wonderful! They are perfect for gifting! Teachers, co-workers, and baby sitters they would be perfect!
I also got a little tube of lotion in the same scent and 5 small hand sanitizer's to keep in my car.
I love the Car Scentportables and went ahead and picked up 2! :)
 
Well that's just a bunch of randomness!
 
Happy Monday Friends!
 
XOXO,
Steph.

College...

College is HARD.

Is there anymore I need to say?

So I have mentioned before I have enrolled back into college and hopefully if everything stays on track I will be done in 3 years! I know I get myself down so much cause 3 YEARS seems like forever, but I know that these years will be some tough years but, it will fly by and be so WORTH it in the end!!

I am taking some of my last prerequisite classes this semester and they are all online. Online classes are a lot of work! Taking care of 2 small kids and working part-time is not the easiest thing to do but you just got to make it work! My husband has stepped up in helping with the kids, cooking supper or whatever needs to be done.

As I made my list of pros and cons of going back to college, the cons were just scary. Please don't let your cons win. Two of my biggest cons was,

1. MONEY! Come on it don't grow on tress anymore? #wishitdidthough
2. My time management. I did not want to take time away from my kids and family.

As a momma of 2 I always put my kids first and after so much thinking I knew that going back would be the best. I want to show my kids what mommy did, what all I accomplished and they get to see me work so hard for it.

I really wanted to write this post to encourage others to follow their dreams and to stop make excuses as to why you could not do this yourself, cause you can! So throw away those excuses and make it happen!! Do this for yourself and your family! Who care's if it takes you 4 or 5 years? Go at your own pace! Who cares if you have tons of student loans? You will get them paid off.
Don't think about it too much just do it!


 
Any questions please ask! :)
 
Now I am off to do some homework.. haha #storyofmylife
3 Math assignments and my Unit 2 test, Psychology test, Biology chapter 6 read along questions, Quiz, and Lab awaits me this week. 
All to be completed by the end of the week with a SMILE on my face. :) 
Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
XOXO,
Steph.

ONE::
 



Can't take this guy anywhere!! He dropped his fork with a piece of steak on the end in his lap the juices went flying all of his shirt. He was all like do you think anyone saw me?? I was like of course not who is watching us? Well one of the MANGERS of the restaurant came over with a glass of club soda and a napkin and said it gets any stain out! HA! then our waitress saw him scrubbing his shirt and was all like I have a TIDE Pen in my pocket! haha before long I am sure the whole place knew Cody dropped his fork with a piece of steak at the end! HAHA!


 
The end of my night was perfect with blowing out the candles with my people.
 
A night out is just what the soul needs sometimes. We went to Malone's and oh my gosh was it good. From the buffalo shrimp appetizer to the salad to the steak to my amazing pixie stix martini. I mean who goes to Malone's and don't get one of those??  If ya haven't try one!! they have the best ones!
 
TWO::
 
My sweet boy got the good behavior reward during lunchtime on Friday and got to eat lunch on the stage with 1 friend! Are they not the sweetest thing ever??? :)
 
THREE::



 
TWIN TIME! Me and Brin got to babysit these sweet boys one day this week and of course I took a million pictures to show them off to everyone!!
 
 
FOUR:: 
 I got these booties for my birthday and wore them yesterday and LOVED them! They are the perfect height and my feet were not killing me by the end of the night! They are very versatile and can go with a lot of outfits!
This whole boutique is amazing! Love all the pieces and FREE SHIPPING!
 
I was feeling all things spring this week and saw these sandals pop up on my Instagram and knew they would be on repeat this spring and summer!
I got the Tan in a size 6 and they fit perfect! If you do want a little more room I would order a size up.
So this boutique has a Store Front but I live too far away so I have ordered a few things from them and they ship for only $5!! I linked the Instagram page but the Boutique is called
Bella Marie Boutique
They have been posting some really cute springs items!
