What's Up Wednesday

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Linking up with some of my favorite bloggers today to tell you a little of "what is up" in our world this month! 

What We are Eating this Week:

We are eating out this week...a ton! Oh my goodness, it just so happens that I went to lunch with a friend on Monday, Mike and I had a date night, Olivia and I have dinner plans with friends on Thursday night and Friday night we are having dinner with the other Girl Scout leaders and their daughters. Needless to say, there isn't a lot of cooking happening around here this week! 

What I am Reminiscing About:

My babies...

In 2 weeks they are going to be 9 and 5 years old. Where has the time gone?

What I'm Loving:

Summer vacation! Love, love, love not having anything we have to do on the agenda! It feels so good not to get in and out of my car twelve times a day anymore! I am loving this feeling while it lasts!

What We've Been Up To:

The weather hasn't been the best, so yesterday we went to the movies and saw Inside Out! Such a good movie. Super cute and I may have gotten teary eyed once or twice!

Then I went to the movies for a second time with my handsome hubby, to see SPY. Oh my gosh, I love Melissa McCarthy and this movie was no exception!

What I'm Dreading:

Packing my house. This summer, we are putting our second floor on. Nothing is finalized, but we know it is happening soon and we couldn't be more excited, but before we start construction, we need to pack up our entire bedroom and take all the pictures off the walls and shelves in the the whole house. We need to make room for construction as well as keep our things safe. I hate to pack, but I know it will be worth it!

What I'm Working On:

Organizing and taking pictures of the kids artwork!

I am uploading it to the app, Artkive. Anyone used it to make a book? Right now they are just all saved in the app, but I do want to make a book someday. I just haven't decided if I will do one book for each kid, of all their artwork through elementary school or put them together and do a book every couple years? Any suggestions? 

What I'm Excited About:

Olivia is planning to get her ears pierced on Thursday night and I am so excited for her! 

Where did my baby go? 

What I'm Watching/Reading:

Based on a recommendation of another mom at tball, we are currently binge watching Sons of Anarchy. I am not as obsessed with this as I have been with some previous shows, but I do like it and want to know what is going to happen!

I just finished reading The Fringe Hours and now I am on to Emily Giffin, One and Only! I am going to do a book review in July, can't wait to tell you all about the great books I have read!

What I'm Listening To:

I am listening to the kids electronic devices while I work on my blog! Owen is playing a monster truck game on my phone and Olivia is watching a show on Netflix! They have 10 minutes and then we are turning them off, having breakfast and getting ready for our day!

This is not today, but I just loved this photo!
Today, they are in PJ's with bed head :)

What I'm Wearing:

Capri yoga pants and a t-shirt. I went for my morning walk and have not jumped in the shower yet! Believe me, you don't want a picture :)

What I'm Doing this Weekend: 

Planning a going away party for one of my best friends who is moving to Virginia next month and really hoping for no rain, but it isn't looking good. Otherwise, we are just hanging out getting stuff done around the house!

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:

The Taylor Swift concert! Olivia and I are heading to see Taylor Swift in a few weeks and we are both super excited! Honestly, I am not sure who is more excited, her or me! The concert happens to fall on my birthday weekend, what a way to spend my 35th birthday, right??

What Else is New:

This guy is having a birthday today! Happy 35th birthday to my hubby! For exactly one month he is my old man! I will for sure rub it in for the next 30 days, until I join him in the mid thirties!

What We are doing for the 4th of July:

Nothing incredibly exciting! One of my favorite things though....

What are your plans for the 4th?

That's what's up with my family, what's up with yours??

Have a great Wednesday everyone! 


  1. i HATE packing. i never mind having to help friends move because everything is already boxed but its always just the worst when you have to pack and move yourself. ugh.
    im also binge watching SOA right now - except I'm completely obsessed lol. Jax Forever! <3

    1. Love it...Jax Forever! I have to agree with you on that :)

  2. I have not been cooking either. It's bad. I'm trying to get my butt in gear and stop eating out so much. It's a hard habit to break.

    1. Yes, it is a hard habit to break for sure! Luckily we do pretty good most of the time, but this week all of our plans have come at once!

  3. Ohhhhh I really want to go see "Inside Out" but I avoid the theaters when school is out at all costs! Glad to know it was good though, definitely going on my "On Demand" list of things when it hits the rental market!

    1. Yes, definitely rent it! So good! Although with Jurassic World out, the theater for this movie wasn't too bad, even on a rainy day!

  4. I want to watch Spy! I have next week off of work so I should pick it up to watch.

    1. It was hysterical! We both really liked it. I love a movie that makes the whole theater laugh out loud!

  5. You are going to LOVE Taylor Swift!! Loved reading your list! Happy BDay to Hubby!!

  6. Seriously jealous about Taylor Swift!! So fun.

    1. We are sooo excited! I can't wait to see the concert and my daughters reaction to her first concert!


I would love to hear your comments and suggestions...
