What's Up Wednesday: February

Hi Foxy Friends! Today I'm linking up with Shay and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday, where we share what's going on with us. So let's get to it:

1. What We're Eating This Week

Mr. made a chilli recipe he had at a friends house, it was really yummy.

I also made this instant pot recipe and Mr. kept saying how good it was, so it must have been good.

If you do end up making this recipe, I only pressure cooked it for 25 minutes (45 minutes and 25 NPR is a ridiculous amount of time) and NPR for 10 minutes and it turned out perfect. I also added a corn starch slurry to thicken up the sauce. In hind sight I should have taken the meat out, taken the fat off of the sauce and then did slurry, but hey I'll do that next time.

2. What I'm Reminiscing About

All the fun we had while on our Canadian adventure, already planning when we can go back!

3. What I'm Loving

The pictures that Larissa took while we were in Canada, gorgeous!

4. What We've Been Up To

All of the kid things...not sure how we got here, but here are the kids after school activities...

Baby Fox: Karate, Religious Education formally known as CCD, Football, Baseball

Mini Fox: Religious Education, Soccer, Gymnastics and Horseback Riding (but only for 2 more weeks I think).

5. What I'm Dreading

Not being able to work out with all of the kids said activities (see prompt above). But I've figured out paths to run while I'm waiting for the kids, and then there is always YouTube workouts at the park while I'm waiting too. I really like Blogilates, as most of her videos no equipment is needed.

Oh also dreading Mr. going on his buisness trip, hate when he has to travel for work, he was doing it so much last year, it was nice to have him home for 3 months, guess all good things must come to an end.

6.  What I'm Working On

Hmmm...trying to organize my desk area...and need to finish cleaning up the garage from the mess that was Christmas. Hosting 20+ people a lot of stuff gets thrown into the garage, so need to clean that up, I think this weekend we'll finally have some time to get that done.

7. What I'm Excited About

Watching baseball and soccer again, I love watching Baby Fox play baseball and Mini Fox play soccer.

8. What I'm Watching/Reading

We just finished watching Lost in Space on Netflix and really enjoyed it.

9. What I'm Listening To

I carry my old iPod Touch in my purse for YEARS, and this week I decided to charge it up and see what songs were on there. Re-Obsessed with the song on there. I think the last time I turned it on was 2014 (I assume, since the calendar is stuck on December 2014).  Anyone else still have their old iPods? I remember thinking that this screen was SOO big when I got it too. Now look how small it is in my hands. Also in the video's section, I had Dawson's Creek season 4, Pitch Perfect and Twilight...that makes me laugh.

10. What I'm Wearing

Wearing all the things from Belong Lifestyle (not affiliate). I just got back from visiting them and got to buy some of their stuff coming up for Spring and you're going to love it! Go see what they have, and because it's a Canadian store, we get a great exchange rate, and the shipping is $5CAD no matter what you get, which means $3.50 for us! Great deal!

Also Target is having their buy one get one 50% off sale of bathing suits for the family. It ends on Saturday night so better hop on it. Includes some of the cute cover ups too!

Go to this post to see more details.

11. What I'm Doing This Weekend

Baseball and soccer...and then Mr. is going out of town so taking the kids to the movies on Sunday. Going to see Sonic...anyone see it?

12.  What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month

Next month I'm looking forward to celebrating Mr's birthday and a friends 40th birthday, should be really fun!

13. What Else Is New

Can't think of anything else that is new...hmmm...need to figure out the kids summer schedule still. Trying to weave it all together is like the air traffic control hard! haha!

Hope you have a great Wednesday! See you Friday when I recap our Canada trip!
