What’s Up Wednesday-5.27.20

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

Today is the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL and we’re SO READY!  You’ll find us sitting pool side {hopefully, please cooperate weather} this afternoon!

What We’re Eating This Week…
We’ve had nothing but summer fare in our house this week and it’ll continue.  Hot dogs, sausages, crab rolls, chicken caesar salads, burgers, and the list goes on.  Do you have a summer favorite I should add to our line-up?

Thanks to our new patio set up Tab is happy to be outside grilling these days.  šŸ™‚

What I’m Reminiscing About…

 Last year’s last day of school looked WAY different.  I’m sad Ebby Lee is missing out on so many farewell to elementary activities, but we’re keeping a healthy perspective about all the people who have lost so much more.  We still have so much to be thankful for. 

 This new fifth grader is ready to rule the school now as one of the oldest in the building.

And Bowen will be tackling second grader like a champ.  For now, we’re gonna soak up ALL THE SUMMER we can.

What I’m Loving…
Peloton Friends-I’m LOVING Dennis’ Country Rides.  Somehow I just discovered them.  He has about twelve and they’re my new favorite.  Growing up in the country made country music my favorite and those rides fly by!

What We’ve Been Up To…
 Polling my Instagram friends to see who Bowen resembles most.  I’m pretty sure I won this one, but my search led me to see the resemblance between Tab in this picture and Nixon when he was a toddler.

Do you see Tab here?  This is Nixon.  šŸ™‚

And we’ve been enjoying ALL THE EXTRA FAMILY TIME!

What I’m Dreading…
Nothing at the moment.

What I’m Working On…
Organizing my bathroom closet.  I’m a product hoarder and I’m going through everything and getting rid of the items I’m not using.  

What I’m Excited About…
Shay and I posted our FOURTH episode last week and I want to say a big THANK YOU!!  Thank you for all the sweet comments and messages.  We’re learning the ropes but hearing your words of encouragement really help!  We still have lots to learn but thank you for following along on our journey.

What I’m Watching/Reading…
I just started reading Searching for Sylvie Lee.
*EDITED*-I wrote this post over the weekend when I really just started this book.  Since then I turned into a mad woman reading nonstop and finished this one {shared my thoughts in my book review post yesterday}, have already finished The Prenup that I mentioned I was currently reading yesterday, and just forgot to edit this post.  A reader asked and I wanted to clarify.  šŸ™‚

Next up is…

Tab and I are watching Season 3 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.  {She’s a comedian so the language is RR.}

What I’m Listening To…
Lots of kids talking ALL THE TIME.  šŸ™‚

What I’m Wearing…
I have some CUTE, CUTE goodies I found at even better prices and I can’t wait to share.  I’ve teamed up with Wal-Mart a few times over the last few months and every time I’ve gotten such great feedback.  You guys are super impressed by not only the prices but the quality as well.  Well, Wal-Mart has done it again, friends!  I found some darling things I think you’ll love!
Look at this top!  I LOVE the color!  {also comes in a blue or white}  It’s light, breezy, and a great top for summer.  Also note the wedges…only $26!!

A little up close so you can see the lace details of this one{and the wrinkles-sorry, I was so excited I couldn’t wait to take pics for you}.

I’m wearing a small and like the fit.  I think it’d be really cute paired with high-waisted jeans as well.

What about this jumpsuit?  In this picture above I’m in the medium.  I’m long-waisted so typically need to size up in jumpsuits.  This one has adjustable straps so I actually liked the small better.  {Pictured below-not sure you can really tell a difference.}

This jumpsuit can be dressed up {like with these wedges} or dressed down.  The material is super comfy and the colors are really pretty.

This is the small….did I mention there are pockets??

If you’re a jumpsuit kind of girl, give this one a try!

This outfit is bright, cheery, and basically, that’s what I’m looking for right now.  The graphic tee {only $7 right now!} paired with this white skirt just make me smile.  This skirt is a bit on the longer side and is a tad high-waisted.  I was thinking of all the teachers out there when I tried it on.  

A little closer look….tee and skirt.

You can shop these as well as a few other goodies here…

Thank you to Wal-Mart for sponsoring this post.

What I’m Doing This Weekend…
We’ll be enjoying our first SUMMER weekend!

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month…
LOTS of time out here!

Thanks for reading today!

    I wrote this post over the weekend BEFORE I wrote my book review and finished it at a crazy fast rate. I just forgot to go back in and update the book. I read it and really liked it!! Iā€™m telling you-Iā€™m reading like a mad woman these days which is not my norm. I already finished The Prenup, which I said Iā€™d just started in my post on Tuesday. It was really good too!

    The funny part is-I kept thinking I needed to change something and reread through this post twice-ever realizing it was the book!! Ha! Glad you asked!
