Not In Jersey: What’s Up Wednesday–March What’s Up Wednesday–March - Not In Jersey

What’s Up Wednesday–March

Wednesday, March 28, 2018



It’s been another busy month! Here’s what we’ve been up to!

1. What we’re eating this month…

We began the month with Purim, which means hamentashen, and now Passover starts on Friday night, so this week we’re eating all the bread and pasta we can! We also eat a lot of salad, and I shared my salad dressing recipe earlier this week!

2. What I’m Reminiscing About…

Earlier this month I reminisced about when the kids were younger and all the mistakes I’ve made!

3. What I’m Loving…

I’m still loving the 52 Frames community and looking through everyone’s wonderful submissions every week. Here are my photos from this month:

4. What We’ve Been Up To…

The day after Purim was a day off and we went to play at one of our favorite parks.


We went to the auto show. Simon’s class had an open house so he could show us his work.


Gabbie’s birthday is during Passover and that means no real cake, so she really wanted to have a cookie cake on her Hebrew birthday. I invited her friends over and when she got home from dance, she was super surprised!


Gabbie also had her first dance competition of the season and earned a high gold.

(not my picture – photos weren’t allowed!)

We did a photo shoot in the library for my candid setup week – the one I chose is above! Here are some others:


We had a super nice day out so we drew with chalk on the driveway:


Now, spring break starts today!

5. What I’m Dreading…

Gabbie is finally getting her braces on in three weeks. Before that, she is having teeth pulled. I hope it goes well!

6. What I’m Working On…

Coming up with fun plans for spring break!

7. What I’m Excited About…

(Just realized I skipped that question last month – oops!) I’m excited because my girls’ trip to L.A. is happening! Soon!

8. What I’m Watching / Reading…

This month I watched Call The Midwife. Now I’m basically in between shows! Any recommendations? I like drama but not sci-fi.

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

9. What I’m Listening To…

I went back to listening to The Bridge after my Billy Joel channel went away!

10. What I’m Wearing…

Nothing too exciting, sadly!

11. What I’m Doing This Weekend…

Celebrating the first two days of Passover, as well as Gabbie’s birthday!

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

Having fun over spring break, seeing Zachary have a great time on his trip to his cousin’s bar mitzvah in Israel with Dave, and my trip to L.A.!

13. What Else Is New…

I think that about covers it! This month the Local Tourist Link Up will be on this coming Friday – if you have blogged about any local adventures you’ve had, please come share!

What’s up with you lately?
