What is Up Wednesday? February Ed.

Linking up today with Larson LingoMix & Match Mama and Pinterest Told Me To for What's Up Wednesday.

What We're Eating This Week... 
    This week I tried a new recipe ( shocking, a new recipe I know)  for Lasagna Soup. It was one of those pins on pinterest that I have had pinned forever. This week the spirit moved me and I felt like it was time.



The verdict, it was delicious. I did add more broken noodles than the recipe called for and about doubled the tomato sauce because of that. I also did not add the green peppers, because green peppers make me gag. ( in case you were really wondering)  Next time I might add spinach and/or mushrooms to make it a little healthier. 

What I'm Reminiscing About... 
    Last year on this day I went into the hospital to be induced. Technically, I went in at 6pm so I just had all day to sit and stew about what was going to happen. At 13 days past due, I had fully come to terms with I was never having a baby. This was the selfie we took right before I got into the ever attractive hospital gown. 

Oh hello swollen pregnant Debbie. We will see you again real soon. 

What I'm Loving... 
      I am loving having some energy back. I don't know if at 12 weeks, I have just turned some corner and the worst is over (for awhile) or if it is the B6 the midwife prescribed but I am definitely loving it. Of course when I say I have energy I mean I actually have like a solid 3-4 hours of productivity in me, lol. A month ago, getting dinner made was my sole accomplishment. So this is really nice, and I am thankful.  

What We've Been Up To... 
      Just minor things like buying a new car, finishing home improvement projects, preparing for Little Man's 1'st birthday and growing a new human being. 

What I'm Dreading... 
   Actually, I am really not dreading anything right now. I mean paying bills is always a downer but really there is nothing worth dreading. 

What I've Been Working On... 
     I have been getting ready for Little Man's birthday. I have also been trying to some pictures printed, and organized on my computer. I really feel like it is such a daunting and ongoing task. There is just so many pictures...

What I'm Excited About... 
      Have I mentioned my baby turns one this week :-)  I am also excited that we made the appointment to find out the gender Baby #2 for April. It is still a ways away, but my little planner heart is starting to itch wanting to make plans. Also really exciting for spring to come. Normally dreaming about spring in February would be highly illogical but this year I feel like Spring is an option. 

What I'm Watching/ Reading...
      Last month I was all about NCIS but sadly that relationship did not work out. This month I am all about this show. 
  

   Netflix only has one season, and I am so sad about it. This show is strangely boring and yet so addicting.  They bake the most interesting items, and the judge manage to be so brutal and yet so nice. If you like cooking/baking shows, I would highly recommend this show. 

What I'm Listening To... 
     I am currently at war with one of my favorite radio stations because they literally only ever play Justin Beiber. I don't know if he secretly bought the station or what. But if I hear him say " Girl what do you mean" or him tell me " Love yourself" one more time I might break my radio. 

What I'm Wearing... 
    I am obsessed with these. I used to be a loyal lipstick/lipgloss girl but these tinted lip balms are the best. I feel like they make look put together but not too flashy when I am running errands in my mom uniform. 


What I'm Doing this Weekend...
     Pretty sure I have covered this one, alot. 

 What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month... 
        I have a girl's night planned with two of my friends.  I haven't seen them in a few months so that is exciting. I also am trying get an actual dinner planned with China Man. 

Favorite Easter Tradition.. 
    Jelly Beans!! Is it bad that all my traditions for Easter involve food? My mom used to always make hot cross buns, and I always love them at Easter.  I also like putting together little Easter baskets for my Cota men. 

So that is what is up this month!
