What’s Up Wednesday–February and Local Tourist Link-Up

Wednesday, February 28, 2018



Once again, my What’s Up Wednesday post is serving as my Month In Review post. Don’t forget to scroll down and link up your local adventures in the Local Tourist Link-Up!

1. What we’re eating this month…

I neglected to post any recipes or take any food photos this month. We have stuck to the regular I suppose!

2. What I’m Reminiscing About…

This month’s posts included a look at our Arkansas trip, with posts about Crystal Bridges, The Walmart Museum, and The Amazeum. I also found myself reminiscing on my older kids being 2nd graders when we celebrated Simon’s Chag Chumash.

3. What I’m Loving…

I kept thinking about this post with so much that I want to share this month! I do want to include my 52 Frames submissions for this month so like last month, I’ll put them in this section!

4. What We’ve Been Up To…

So many things! I may have mentioned a few times that I have a new nephew, and we started out the month with a visit to meet him. Next up with Simon’s Chag Chumash as well as the school science fair. Zachary ended up qualifying for the Greater Kansas City Science Fair in April!


We had school off for President’s Day and now we’re getting ready for Purim, which is tonight and tomorrow!


Finally, this Sunday we got to see the Harlem Globetrotters play! I will be writing more about that soon.

5. What I’m Dreading…

To be honest, I’m dreading all the upcoming days off the kids have! In a month it will be spring break, and then it’s almost the end of school already!

6. What I’m Working On…

Right now I’m preparing for Purim and next up is preparing for Passover. Plus I’m hoping to get ready for the spring consignment sale!

8. What I’m Watching / Reading…

Aside from the regular, I watched the first season of The Good Place and the second season of Greenhouse Academy. I’m now watching Call The Midwife. We also finally saw The Greatest Showman and I went to school to watch Big Sonia with my older kids. Big Sonia is about a Holocaust survivor who speaks locally and inspires people from students to prisoners.

As usual, you can see my latest book reviews here.

9. What I’m Listening To…

The Billy Joel channel! I was so excited when I heard there would be a temporary Billy Joel channel on Sirius. I hope it lasts longer than temporarily! Some of the songs are played a bit much (like Keeping The Faith and Captain Jack for example!) but I love hearing my favorites (like An Innocent Man, You’re My Home, and The Entertainer to name a few!).

10. What I’m Wearing…


I participated in The Blended Blog’s Spread The Love Gift Exchange, which was a swap of small accessories. I was paired with Joanne from Our Unschooling Journey, which was fun because I’d recently begun following her blog. You can see what I sent her here. Joanne sent me earrings, which I have been making a point to wear!


11. What I’m Doing This Weekend…

No plans yet!

12. What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month…

More warm weather.
