What's up Wednesday {4/26/17}

Welcome back! We've made it to Wednesday, only two days until Friday! Hooray!

I'm back for another What's Up Wednesday and of course I'm linking up with ShaySheaffer, and Mel!


What we're eating this week: Spaghetti and garlic toast, Waffles,...pretty much we are trying to eat as much of the food we have so we don't have to pack it up!;)

What I'm reminiscing about: The last four years in Virginia and my husband being in dental school. It went by so fast! I'm definitely excited to be moving on with my husband's education, but I'll miss friends I've made here.

What I'm loving: This dry shampoo! It smells soooo good AND it's super cheap AND it works like a dream!

What we've been up to: On Saturday we went to Mount Vernon and explored George Washington's estate. All the pictures from that day trip are found here!

What I'm dreading: Packing up my apartment...we've lived here for four years and we have probably almost doubled what we had when we moved here because our family has doubled in size!

What I'm working on: Not eating sugar!! haha This No-Sugar Challenge has been so hard! Maybe it's stress and lots of rainy days but I am wanting to eat all.the.candy!! Help me!

What I'm excited about: Dental Gala, Graduation, family coming to visit, so much excitement is happening this next month!

What I'm watching: South Pacific. We usually watch nature shows Sunday evenings and we just started this one last week and it's been really good/interesting so far!

What I'm reading: Nothing at the moment....I have two books waiting to be read but it's not very high on my priority list;)

What I'm listening to: B is supposed to be napping but is instead playing in his room. Please don't be growing out of naps!!!

What I'm wearing: On Easter I wore this outfit and I'm in love with the peplum top! It's under $15!!
We have had some really warm days lately! So t-shirts and shorts/capris are on repeat! 

What I'm doing this weekend: Packing, organizing, and all that fun moving prep stuff;)

What I'm looking forward to next month: I'm not exactly looking forward to moving to a new city and starting over, BUT I am looking forward to having a new apartment layout to work with and decorate!

What else is new: We traded kitchen tables with a lady from our church. Hers was too big and ours was too small so it worked out great! We are going to refinish the one we got and find some new chairs that match our style!

What's your favorite Spring/Summer shoe: These Sandals but I got mine for $7 on clearance a couple years ago! I wear them all the time!

Have a fantastic day!!

Mount Vernon {George Washington's Estate}

We finally made it to Mount Vernon and finished our Virginia Bucket List on Saturday! 

It rained the entire time and we were all soaked but still spent 4 1/2 hours exploring George Washington's estate!

Stained glass windows inside the building you enter the property at.

Waiting in line for the mansion tour. B said his hat was at home, but was really in the car the entire time, so we made him a tunic hat from my cardigan!

The Mansion. It has 9 guest rooms and had so much original (to the house) furniture and art inside!

The kitchen is located to the right of the main house in a separate building to keep the house from getting too hot. (This was the only room you could take pictures in.)

West side of the Mansion

There's Maryland across the Potomac River!

Wet and cold:)

I loved the covered walkways on each side of the house.

Splashing in puddles was a favorite of B's!!

Inside the museum there were life size replicas of George Washington at different ages. They have done extensive research on what his face really looked like through molds, so that was pretty cool!

My husband's favorite part was seeing the actual denture he wore in his mouth! They look so uncomfortable!
Fun fact: When George was sworn into office, he only had one real tooth left in his mouth!

Baaing at the sheep!:)

I love roads covered in green tree canopies like this! - Virginia has a lot of them!

George and Martha's tombs were the last thing we saw and they are on the property as well.
We also watched a couple movies at the museums and during one of them your seat would vibrate with the gun shots and cannons and it also "snowed" in the theater during the snow scene!

I'm so glad we made time to visit Mt. Vernon. We were a little afraid it was going to be just another old house (we have visited a lot of those the last four years) but it wasn't!

Three Things

Happy Thursday!!

It feels like so much has happened this month, so I had no trouble coming up with what to put in this post!
Baby E:
1) Now rolls from his back to stomach and always gets stuck!

2) I'm trying out the Baby Led Weaning method this time around and so far he has eaten applesauce, bananas, and green beans. I have researched this method a little and I'm going to start feeding him roasted yellow squash and zucchini too.

3) We've started putting him in his high chair when we're in the kitchen and he actually enjoys it most of the time!

B:
1) Has such a good memory and remembers details of things I quickly forget/don't care about.

2) Knows his birthday!

3) Is always wanting to be outside and playing in the dirt!

Hubby:
1) Is in his last week of his oral surgery rotation at school and last week he pulled 40 teeth, gross!

2) Bought FIVE Costco sized bags of chocolate chips for a cookie fundraiser he's in charge of!

3) Graduates dental school in three weeks!

Myself:
1) Is loving our new family pictures!! Here's the post in case you missed them!

2) Sold our wonderful garden box this week because we don't know if our next apartment has a spot for it. :(

3) Getting more excited about moving because we FINALLY found a place to live!
