What’s Up Wednesday

 I’m joining MelShay, and Sheaffer for their What’s Up Wednesday link-up!

What we’re eating this week:

My family is in town this week so I’ve had our food planned down to the snack almost.  ha!

Monday:  Hard Eights BBQ fed us all!
Tuesday:  We’re taking family pictures and will be eating something quick from home before heading out.  (sandwiches, leftovers, etc.)
Wednesday:  We’re going out for delicious Mexican food before they head home on Thursday.
Thursday:  Tab’s taking off work early to meet us to swim, so we’ll probably eat out somewhere quick.
Friday:  We’ll be throwing something on the grill.

What I’m Reminiscing About:

I’m remembering last year when we visited our Missouri family on their turf.

What I’m Loving:

Laid back bed times, no schedule, and all the pool time!

What We’ve Been Up To:

We just got back from our summer vacation to Mexico.  If you missed it…

What I’m Dreading:

What I’m Working On:
I’m still working on completing another room, but let’s be real-it’s summer!!  There’s not a lot of searching going on around here.

What I’m Excited About:
The Fourth of July!!  Our town has the cutest little Independence Day parade.  We follow it up with swimming and fireworks.  Love this tradition!

What I’m watching/reading:

You guys know I’m watching Big Brother!  I’ve been asked to be “The Sheaffer” of Big Brother.  Maybe next year?  I can’t make any promises though.  I’m gonna have to work on my jokes all year long before I’ll even be close to ready.  haha!  #icantpromiseanything

I’m loving this book right now!!

What I’m Listening To:

I have to share this story!  At our resort in Mexico, there was an entertainment staff of four people who kept a party going on at all times.  Every day at noon they had a little aqua aerobics.  I always participated…1. To get my lazy self moving. 2. It was just fun!

Everyday they played the same music and by the end of the week-all five of us were humming/dancing along.  There was one song in particular that was in SPANISH we loved.  haha!  I videoed a tiny little clip one day of the group doing our moves.  When we got home, we all kept trying to remember the music.  I downloaded that Shazam app on Tab’s phone, held my phone playing the video up to his phone, and it pulled up the song!!  Can you believe that?  Technology blows my mind.

I should add that I have NO clue what the words are really saying in English.  It could be something awful, but it has a great beat!

I found the video on YouTube.  Don’t pay attention to the video, but listen to the music.  🙂

What I’m Wearing:
ALL swimsuits ALL the time!

What I’m Doing This Weekend:
Celebrating the 4th of July…lots of pool time, for sure.

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month:
A month full of no schedules before school starts up again.  🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Happy Wednesday!  XOXO

    I'm dreading school starting back only because I have to give up my freedom of no schedule! And like you, I'm slowly working on another room in our house. I'm hoping to have furniture bought before school starts back–that should be enough time ha!

    Forever reader and first time that I leave a comment in your blog! Love you family and all the fun and craziness.. Just wanted to say I laughed like crazy with your comment on the song. I am Latin and Spanish is my mother language so I very well know all the songs from Nicky Jam since they are all over the radio here where I live 🙂
    Having said that, I laughed because I believe if you understand what the song says in English you would be embarrassed lol He's trying to get the girl to be naughty with him and she resists haha along those lines with the characteristic latin slang… the Jam is pretty cool though so I don't blame you for having it in your head…
    Keep up the good work, love your blog and its in my everyday reading list.

    I've actually heard that song before!! Must be popular. It's a walk up song for one of the Royals players. We're from MO and go to games a lot. Can't remember which player because a couple of them walk up to Spanish songs. It is a good song though. Good beat!

    Hope you are having a blast with your family in town!! I loved Silver Girl, one of my favorite books of hers for sure! Also, there was a song I was totally obsessed with on our honeymoon in Punta Cana and could never figure it out until one day I was in a Pure Barre class and it was randomly playing on one of their playlists! I was so excited and love listening to it so I totally understand!

    That's so funny about the song, I agree with what Elvira has to say about the song, it's so catchy! In your search for this song did you hear the one with Nicky Jam and Enrique Iglesias? That's a good one too. Or if you want a really catchy song try Selena and google "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom" which is a song about what sound her heart makes when she sees her crush go by. 🙂 Plus you can't go wrong with Selena!

    That is so funny about the video music! We just went to a Dominican Republic resort and they played a song every day for water aerobics and I LOVED it….had NO idea what the words were either but if I ever hear it again it will take me right back! I wish I had thought to record it like you did! Loved your recaps of your trip and can't wait to see questions answered! We have never been to Mexico!
    Have fun with your Missouri family! I'm a Kansas girl!

    Oh my gosh, I would love if you recapped Big Brother! Only a week in, you can still start. 😉 You are funny just the way you are! Last season was the first season I watched because you had me curious. I thought it was pretty silly at first but now I'm hooked! Haha!

    I'm reading Silver Gril right now as well. I don't watch Big Brother any more, but if you recapped, I'm sure I would read it!
