What's Up Wednesday- July

Time for What's Up Wednesday with MelSheaffer, and Shay
Lets get started!

What We’re Eating this week.....
Monday sausage, egg, cheese taquitos with hashbrowns
Tuesday Benihana
And that's how far I've got. Ha! 

What I'm Reminiscing about.....
This question is a hard one this month. I have lots of things I reminisce about, but I'm trying to focus on living in the now. Not taking life for granted, and having fun.

 What I'm loving.....
My hair. This isn't the best pic, but it's GROWING!! I miss my long, long hair. Hopefully next week I can find time to get it trimmed up, and touch up these roots.

What We've been up to..... 
We have had a busy, busy July! We dressed like cows to get free CFA! My kids were not thrilled as you can see.
We went to backyard adventures at church one morning. You can read about it here
A couple weeks ago we met up with my friend, Jess, and her girls for a play date. We went to Play Street Museum in Frisco. You can also read that here
We LOVE to swim. Lots of swimming with friends and family.

Pops got moved to a rehab center closer to home. The kids love going to visit him. Yesterday we let them push pops in his wheelchair. 
My nephews came in town for a night last week to visit pops. While Katy, and Nash went to Aldi we hung out with Pearson at nonnies.
If you're looking for us in the evenings, or on the weekends check the lake. 
I would be okay if it was lake weather year round. 

Carson turned 7
Olivia turned 4

What I'm Dreading.....
Olivia playing soccer. Ha! The parking lot at the fields she plays on is a nightmare! Plus this means I will have to be up and out of the house by 8 AM most Saturdays. It will be worth it if she actually plays this season. Last Fall when I signed her up she would just stand on the field most of the time. I skipped the spring season, and she has begged me to sign her up ever since. We'll see how it goes.
What I'm Working On.....
Cleaning out closets and drawers. I'm feeling suffocated by my house, because I've let the kids closets get out of control.
What I'm Excited About.....
School to be back. Olivia is starting a new preschool I'm pretty excited about. 

What I'm Watching........
The Bachelorette. Praise the Lord it's over! Too much drama.
I'm also watching RHOC. I can't stand the Meghan chick on there.
 I think I expected Cait to have a more girly voice to go with her new look. Threw me off guard a little when I was watching. It was a little weird when watching, because I saw so many Bruce mannerisms during the show. 

What I'm Listening to.....
 My two kids argue. All summer there has been lots of arguing. I don't know how much longer I can handle it. They normally get along, but I'm thinking it's because they only see each other for about 4 hours a day during the school year.

What I'm Wearing.....
I love this black t shirt dress with sandals. So comfy for running errands in 100+ temps. You can also dress it up with some wedges for a date night.
 I just added this dress to my wardrobe. It's lightweight and slimming. I wore this to Benihana last night it hid my food baby very well. Don't judge me when you see me wear it in several pics! It's my new favorite.

What I’m doing this weekend.....
This weekend is a busy one. We are having sassy pants fourth birthday party on Saturday, then Saturday evening I'm taking pictures for a family. Sunday we will be on the lake, Duh!

What I'm Looking Forward to next month.....
Next month we are finally going to visit my SIL and her family. I've been wanting to see her new house, but life has been a little crazy. My nephew is turning 2, and of course school starts back. I think I would be okay if we only had 3-4 weeks for summer break.

What else is new..... 
My sister turned 26 yesterday. We got a rare family picture. We were missing Ryan. He got off late, and had to mow the yard.

Question of the month is:
What will you miss most about Summer?

The long days. I love how it's not dark until about 9PM. Also our laid back schedule. I like being on a schedule, but it's a lot of work to be on a strict one.

  1. Haha, the ChickFilA picture is too cute! What we will do for free chicken!!!

  2. The black T-shirt dress looks cute!

  3. Oh My Gosh . . .literally laughing out loud!!! I thought I was the only one who referred to my tummy after eating as a food baby!!! It totally grosses my family out when I say it. And I'm with you, not a fan of Meghan and will miss the long summer days :-)

    1. Glad I'm not the only one with a food baby! 😊
