What’s Up Weekend


I’m linking up with my new friends from The Peaceful Posse for the “What’s Up Weekend” new weekly link up. It’s a Friday post to check in on what’s made you happy and grateful this week. I’m all about the positive vibes, so I’m totally on board. Here are ten things that made me happy this week!


(1) Playing at the park with my boys on a warmish spring day.

(2) As I talked about yesterday, getting my blogging mojo back.


(3) Getting to go on Ollie’s first field trip and seeing a play at a local theatre.

(4) Visiting with a friend I haven’t seen in person in a couple of months.


(5) Musical March Madness with a local radio station (even if I didn’t get all my picks right!), it’s been all 90’s albums so I’m reliving my youth all week.As I talked about yesterday, getting my blogging mojo back.

(6) Making summer plans.


(7) Seeing Ollie’s imagination and creative play really start to develop.

(8) Unwinding at night with Parks and Rec and The Office.

(9) Reading total and complete fluff.

(10) Donuts. Need I say more?

What’s making you happy right now?

Looking ahead to the weekend we’ve got a visit to our Science Museum with some friends to see the Mythical Creatures exhibit and dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant on Saturday and Nate’s going to be smoking and bbq’ing some meats on Sunday, so it should be a good weekend! I hope you all have a great one too!

Linking up with My Pixie Blog, The Flynnigans and The Brave Wanderer.

  1. Musical March Madness sounds like it’s much more up my alley than basketball! 😉 And Parks and Rec is one of my FAVORITE shows. I’m so sad it’s over.

  2. YAY!!! so happy to see you link up this week 🙂 Glad to hear you’re getting your blogging mojo back! I feel like I’m finally getting into a rhythm myself.

    Also that 90s Music edition — March Madness made me so happy. RADIOHEAD! WILCO! WEEZER! Ahh yes… the music of my youth!! So much better than the actual sport version :p

    Awww, your little Ollie is so cute…and getting so big! I remember when I first started stopping by, he was so tiny! Adorable. Like your little field trip dates.

    XOXO and hope you have a great weekend!

  3. My husband is obsessed with March Madness and my bracket falls apart every year. I like your March Madness better! Also, that donut looks DELICIOUS!

  4. How fun going to the park with your men! Ollie is such a sweetheart!
    Making summer plans sounds wonderful! Where are you going?
    We booked a rental home in Tuscany for our summer vacation in August, it has a pool and everything and I cannot wait!
    Also, donuts?!?! Yay!
    Happy Friday xxx

    1. We’re visiting Branson, MO for a family wedding in May and we’ll be going to Itasca State Park in Northern MN in June and also hopefully Duluth, MN in August! Going to be a lot of traveling! Tuscany sounds delightful! I look forward to hearing how you enjoy it!

  5. That donut has me drooling. And that park! That is the coolest little digger thingy! My boys would have loved that when they were little.

  6. These are all such wonderful things! Yay for park visits and of course donuts (I had a couple of those myself this morning… mmmm. ). And musical March Madness, how fun! A podcast I listen to did a March Madness for books, which of course I loved.
