What’s Up Wednesday-5.26.21



I’m linking up today with Sheaffer and Shay for What’s Up Wednesday.  

What We’re Eating This Week…

Last week, I was a mess in the dinner department but this week is a different story.

Monday-Pasta with Bacon and Corn-I don’t make much pasta in our house but even my non-pasta eater was a big fan!  And it was SUPER simple!

Tuesday-Last night I had dinner with some girlfriends but I try to have a slow cooker dinner ready to go for my family while I’m gone.  BBQ Chicken Tacos were on the menu {and I’m looking forward to a lunch leftover taco}.

Wednesday-Are a crazy night…youth group at church, football practice, and baseball sprinkled in has me making Wednesday nights our most easy meals of the week.  Tonight, it’s Hot Lobster Rolls-EASY!

Thursday-Did you see the Dill Pickle Burgers Shay just posted?  We love a dill pickle in our house so we’re firing up the grill on Thursday just for these burgers!

Friday-And we’re kicking off the first week of summer with Mexican food out on Friday night!

What I’m Reminiscing About…

I miss her everyday…

What I’m Loving…

This Kopari Coconut Melt is my FAVORITE summer product.  I’m LOVING that it’s time to use this again!  

What We’ve Been Up To…
ALL THE END OF THE YEAR EVENTS-especially since this kid graduated fifth grade.

What I’m Dreading…
More rainy days.

What I’m Working On…

My girlfriend, Meagan, posted this yesterday and I could not stop laughing.  That’s it.  That’s an example of my brain at all times.  I’m sure you feel the same way too.

What I’m Excited About…
Pool Days-it’s been raining cats and dogs over the past couple weeks here in North Texas and I’m so over it.  I’m ready for nice warm days we can spend poolside.

What I’m Watching/Reading…
Tab and I are finally watching The Crown.  We’re just about four years too late to the party but we’ve arrived.  We’re watching just one episode at night but the past two nights I cannot help but fall asleep during the last fifteen minutes and he gets so annoyed.  ha!!  I’m telling you-my eyelids will not stay open.  He’s saying things like, “You’re not asleep.  Are you?”  And I’m opening my eyelids as he speaks.  Or he’ll ask me if I saw what just happened and when he asks for a detail-AAHH!  He knows I missed it.  I can’t help it.  I’m tired!  

I’m still reading, The Hunting Party.  

What I’m Listening To…

What I’m Wearing…
This sweater top has been on repeat paired with a variety of things but on this particular night it was these jeans and sandals.  And Sheaffer’s bracelets-hard to see pictured above but you can find those all on this page.

What I’m Doing This Weekend…
We’re hoping to spend sometime in the backyard by the pool over the weekend…fingers crossed!

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month…

Spending my days with these four…even if it rains all month.

Thanks for reading today!  See you tomorrow!

    Well at had to laugh that you always fall asleep during The Crown…because I did too. There's something about the British TV shows that lull me to sleep. The Great British Bake Off has the same effect. LOL

    That sounds like the conversation my husband and I have almost every night while watching TV too but it's usually the other way around while he's insisting he's not sleeping… but he is!
