What’s Up Wednesday – 12/18/19

Happy Wednesday! It’s the last week of school in 2019 and I am ready for a nice long break. 3 more days of school (including today) until we have 13 days off!! I am linking up with Shay and Sheaffer today to share what’s up with the Parsons.

WHAT WE’RE EATING…
I am trying to meal plan but this busy schedule has us eating at the dashboard diner (drive thrus) more than I’d like. I shared three of our family favorites this month and they are all perfect for busy families or people who want an easy, tasty meal. We had meatballs last night and are having snack dinner on Thursday before everyone’s practices. Snack dinner is basically emptying the fridge/pantry to make a meal of fruit, raw veggies, cheese, crackers, leftovers, etc. It’s an easy dinner that my kids get excited about because we don’t have it very often.

WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT…
The boys had their annual visit with Santa this weekend. So I started looking through our Santa pictures and oh how I love them! 😍

WHAT I’M LOVING…
I am loving how much better I feel when I make time for 30 minutes of intentional movement every day. The Fellow Flowers Holiday Challenge and the Zooma Winter Warrior challenge have kept me going. Taking that time for myself each day really helps to keep stress away and it helps me be ready to face what the day is going to send my way.

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO…
We have been doing all the Christmas! We went to Enchant Christmas last weekend and I loved it! There were so many beautiful lights.
We spent the night at the Gaylord in National Harbor.
We had fun at a Christmas party.
We visited a local church’s drive-thru nativity.
Jack and Luke have been swimming and playing basketball. Jeff and I have been cheering them on!

WHAT I’M DREADING…
Not much at all. I love all things Christmas and Christmas break!

WHAT I’M WORKING ON…
I am working on our Dino Readers program where everyone in the whole school reads the same book. I am excited about our book this year!

WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT…
CHRISTMAS!!! This is me all season long:
I am excited to spend 13 days with my family and friends while we have no school.

WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING…
Currently I am watching Movies That Made Us about Die Hard, Jeff’s favorite Christmas movie. 😂
We’ve been watching White Christmas, Christmas Vacation, Elf, Noelle (on Disney+), Charlie Brown Christmas, and the newest version of The Grinch.
I’ve been watching Hallmark Christmas movies every time I turn on the tv.

I’ve been reading Christmas books. I have a few more I want to read but I am running out of time!!

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO…
All Christmas music, all the time. I have been listening to Classical Christmas, Micheal Buble Christmas, and Relaxing Christmas prime stations on Amazon.

WHAT I’M WEARING…
I have been trying to be as comfy as possible, while still being professional and festive.
I’m rocking my Cora’s Den festive necklaces.

WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND…
Luke has an 8 and under swim meet. Jack has a basketball game. We have a Christmas party on Saturday night.

WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH…
VACATION!!! We are headed south and warm at the end of next month and I cannot wait!

WHAT ELSE IS NEW…
That’s about it. I’m hoping to read a bunch over Christmas break and head back to school relaxed and rejuvenated in January.

Have a great day full of sunshine and books!
