What's Up Wednesday

Good morning and happy What's Up Wednesday!! These posts are some of my favorites for the whole month. I love feeling like I get to "catch up" with some of my favorite bloggers. Here's a look at what's been going on around here lately:
What We've Been Eating: We have been eating a lot of healthy side items around here lately, including: 
Tonight we are having Andrea's Southwest Bowls (one of our all time favorite recipes!).
What I'm Loving: Liam is in the sweetest stage of nonstop smiles/giggles and I don't ever want it to end!! I am trying to take as many videos as I can of his sweet little laugh so I can watch them in the future when we are having a rough day.
What I'm Working On: Decluttering!! I wrote a blog post a few weeks back about decluttering this month and I am almost done-- whew!! I have donated/thrown away/recycled/repurposed almost 400 items from my home. Isn't that incredible?? And I was not a pack rat/hoarder to begin with! I knew we had some things to go through and get rid of, but 400?! And the shocking part is that it really hasn't been that hard to find 400 things to get rid of. 😳
What I'm Excited About: Liam's Baptism is next month and I am so excited to have our friends and family together to celebrate our sweet boy. I am currently on the hunt for the perfect christening outfit for him. LG wore my Baptismal gown from when I was a baby, but there is NO way this big boy will fit into it! I wasn't super into the idea of him wearing a gown anyway, so I'm not going to push it 😀
What I'm Watching/Reading: I will do my monthly reading post on Friday but my favorite book so far of the month has been Lock Every Door
I joined a new Facebook Book Club called "Read Between the Wines" and so far the first book (Lock Every Door) was a hit! I can't wait to see what next month's book is. 
As for watching, of course I'm watching the Bachelor. I have to say, I am really disappointed that Peter has kept Victoria F. around. What on earth does he see in that girl?? I mean yes, she's beautiful... but so is every other girl there. I guess Peter is into "crazy"?
A coworker recommended "Call the Midwife" since I told her I loved Downton Abbey, and so far I love it! It's about nurses, midwives, and nuns in 1950's and 1960's England and it's adorable. 
What I'm Listening To: I've been on a big country kick lately so I just have Pandora play "Top Country Hits". When I'm cooking though I still love "French Cooking Music".
What I'm Wearing: I just bought a ton of clothes on Amazon last week and did two posts about them here:

Here are a few of the outfits:
 Green Dress (I thought this would be perfect for St. Patrick's Day!)
 I found this outfit on Pinterest and tried to recreate it. I am LOVING these pants! The shirt has a cute little tie at the bottom, you can't see in this pic because it's tucked in.
What I'm Doing This Weekend: One of my best girlfriends is having a baby in April and I am helping to throw her baby shower. I am so excited for this sweet baby girl's arrival and know my friend Allie is going to be an amazing mom. The theme for the shower is "Winnie the Pooh" so I bought little honey jars to give away as favors and I think they will be adorable when they're finished. I just need to add the honey (I bought giant jugs from Costco) and add some ribbon to tie the dipping "spoon".
What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month: I said this earlier, but Liam's Baptism!

Thanks for stopping by to catch up with me today! Can't wait to see what all of you are up to as well!! See you back here tomorrow for another healthy recipe!
