What I'm reminiscing about this week? Being pregnant! This time last year I was in my last weeks with McCoy...the nice weather and hustle and bustle of planting has been reminding me of last year when it was just me, Merritt, and my big baby belly!

What I am loving? This weather, Bath and Body Works- Fresh Brazil Citrus scented lotion (link it smells like summer vacation!), my Ipsy bag (such a fun treat every month!), Soft Lips lip balm in citrus mint (tingly and fresh! I keep them all over the house!), Benefit Hoola Bronzer (got it for Christmas, i'ts pretty fabulous and truly is like "Barbados in a box!"), Amazon Fire Stick (we gave up cable and haven't looked back! This thing is amazing!!), Younique fiber lashes mascara (it is seriously like fake lashes, but way easier!) and my new Emjoi Micro Pedi (Amazon link) Love it! My tootsies are ready for flip flops!!

What we've been up to? Planting, Shopping (three times this week with both boys! And we are all still alive! Winning!), Playing at the park with friends, Kindermusik, and enjoying being outside in this fab weather!

What I'm dreading? Cleaning/organizing my basement! We have lived here over a year, and it still looks like it did the day we moved in! A disaster! I really want it done, so we can enjoy it, but I am dreading the process! It is a huge MUST on my summer to-do list!!

What I'm working on? McCoy's first birthday party preparations, a few spring cleaning/organizing projects, and getting all of Merritt's papers filled out for Preschool.

What I'm excited about? Going home to Mississippi in June! We always go in June every year so we can watch/help my niece with her horse shows! We will also go to New Orleans to see my nephews and lots of other fun stuff too! The Farmer is going to drive us down, and we are planning a little mini get-away to Biloxi before he heads back home. Also, this year, when Daddy brings us back to Iowa, we are going to road trip across Kansas to see all the old Cowtowns! I have had our itinerary planned for months! Two of the towns have gun fight reenactments, Merritt is SOO excited! He calls them "cowboy shows!" Can't wait!!

What I'm watching/reading? Not really reading anything at the moment. Watching Mr. Selfridge, Wolf Hall (Henry VIII drama on PBS), Real Housewives of New York, Teen Mom, and Scandal. Ohh and we can't forget Paw Patrol, Team Umizoomi, Mike The Knight, and Bubble Guppies! Blah! :) 

What I'm listening to? I don't really listen to the regular radio or any albums, but I do love Pandora radio! We usually have it set to the Disney Radio station! My momma got me a blue tooth speaker for the shower, it is linked to my ipad, so I always listen to the Pandora Lee Ann Womack or Cross Canadian Ragweed stations when I'm in the bathroom :)

What I'm wearing? Honestly...yoga pants, t-shirts, pajamas...most of the time with food, spit up, and who knows what else on them!! This is real life people!! haha! I did get some super cute tanks at Target awhile back, but haven't gone anywhere to wear them!! I also ordered a fab maxi dress from Zulily, but it hasn't come in yet..hoping I love it on, as much as the picture!! We have a few weddings this summer and it will be perfect, hopefully!

What I'm doing this weekend? Not really sure?!? We were thinking of going to The South Dakota Children's Museum, but I haven't really seen/talked to The Farmer for more than five minutes in the past three days, so no plans have been made yet! 

What I'm looking forward to next month? My baby's first birthday (eeccckk!!), Tulip Festival, and going to Sams Club (alone!)!! Ha! Don't judge, it's the little things yall!! :)

What else is new? Not much, Merritt's Kindermusik celebration is next week, then he is done and my last MOPS meeting is the 14th, so we will be finished with our activities until the fall...summer, here we come!! 

Bonus Question: What are you buying/wanting for Mother's Day this year? I just want to spend time with my boys and go to Slades drive-in for a huge burger, cheese balls, and ice cream!! And maybe get some flowers to plant! :)
