Visiting US why I 1-30 is processing

I’m a US citizen currently waiting for my wife (Japanese citizen) to get her marriage based green card, Our 1-30 is processing still and probably won’t update for awhile.

We plan on meeting up to see each other soon. It’s been awhile since we last saw each other and we both have vacation time around Christmas/New years so we’ve picked that time.

I read once that you can enter the US while a I 1-30 is processing if you use a tourist visa/ESTA and don’t plan on staying long?

Has anyone ever had their spouse visit while their I 1-30 was processing? And what type of proof and reason for visiting should she tell the immigration officer at the airport?

If I left out any additional information I’ll share it.

Thank you.
