What’s Up Wednesday-6.28.23

What’s Up Wednesday! I’m gonna link up with Sheaffer and Shay to answer a little about what’s going on around here.

What We’re Eating This Week

Monday-Nixon’s baseball team is playing in our local Dallas World Series Baseball Tournament and he played late Monday afternoon so the team went out to dinner together afterwards.

Tuesday-Due to the baseball tournament our schedule is all up in the air because winning/losing really changes the times. All that to say, as I’m typing this it’s early Tuesday morning and I have nothing planned. I’m hoping we win our first game and are playing tonight at 6:00 so dinner will be pure chaos again. 🙂

Wednesday-Last day of the baseball tournament and who knows??!

Thursday-A friend just told me she does shrimp/sausage boils in foil on the grill. Which sounds so good and easy! But I’m terrible with the grill so I’m gonna attempt to do this in the slow cooker. I have red potatoes and corn to throw in with the shrimp and sausage.

Friday-Honestly by Friday, there’s no telling what we’ll be eating for dinner.

A baseball tournament week with DAYS of games makes me fly by the seat of my pants when it comes to dinner, which isn’t the norm for me, but I’m rolling with it.

What I’m Reminiscing About

Apparently, when I look back-two years ago I was doing THE EXACT SAME THING I’m doing this week! Watching lots of baseball!

What I’m Loving

You guys! I just can’t quit them! Summer in Texas is HOT! {I’m looking at you EXTREME HEAT BASEBALL TEMPS!} And these tennis skirts/skorts are THE perfect solution to looking a little more elevated than straight up athletic shorts but they’re as comfortable and as cool as we can get! Whoever decided to bring these back a few years ago, well I’d like to thank them. 🙂

What We’ve Been Up To

Did you see my Part 1 and Part 2 Iceland posts? I have Part 3 going live tomorrow!

What I’m Working On

LAUNDRY!! Bowen went to church camp over the weekend and when I opened his duffle bag-the ENTIRE pile of dirty laundry was wet. UGH!!!

What I’m Excited About

I’m SO looking forward to our 4th of July this year! It’s a dead week of baseball so we’re officially “off” for a week and I’m excited!

What I’m Watching/Reading

I’m mid this book and can’t quit! Have you ready Hello Beautiful?

We watched as much of the College World Series as we possibly could! By the end of the tourney, all six of us were LSU Tiger fans! SO happy they pulled out the win! {It wasn’t a big tough win during game 3, but you know what I mean.}

What I’m Listening To

One of my friends just told me I have to start listening to the Scamanda podcast! I began earlier today and am HOOKED!!

What I’m Wearing

ALL the red + white + blue! Like this dress!

What I’m Doing This Weekend

On Saturday we set off for a FUN adventure! I can’t even give you a hint or you’ll know where we’re headed! 😉

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month

This crew of mine and I have two trips planned in July! We’re gonna do it big before football season and back to school are here before we know it!

Thanks for reading today!

    Two things to say:

    Hello Beautiful- one of my favorite books of all time ever. LOVED it so much. Felt so sad when it was over.

    Scamanda- I was so so so mad during that whole podcast. Ugh. How she used Jesus as part of her scam, and hurt so many people. Man, that was a crazy podcast.

    Scamanda had me hooked too!! The podcast got drawn out and repetitive at times but I just had to find out how it would all play out. She’s such a narcissist!

    I am all about the skort too! I am working on perfecting a seafood bake in the grill myself and will post once I get the seasoning perfected. I have a photo of attempt #1 on Instagram @pcrichey. Does Tab grill? I prep and my husband grills. I don’t even know how to turn the grill on!

      Erika Slaughter said:

      Oh Patty! That sounds delish! I don’t know how to turn it on either! I’ve got a long way to go!

    I’m so happy you all became LSU Tiger fans!!! It was a great CWS overall with many really good and close games, and then a couple that weren’t so close (can we say LSU and Florida). I think I watched almost every game much to my husband’s dismay. He’s not much of a baseball fan, but since I missed watching only a very few LSU games this season plus him being a Florida State fan (therefore not a Florida fan AT ALL) he really got into cheering for LSU. I’m so proud of those LSU Tigers and happy for them! They started the year as the #1 team and worked their way back to finish the year as the #1 team and win the championship! There are no fans like LSU fans, that’s for sure. The team has been so much fun to watch! I’m not sure what I’m going to do now! Tell your boys I’d love to see them in purple and gold one day! Geaux Tigers!

      Gigi, THANK YOU!! What a way to end the season! It was incredible to watch! And the LSU team had so many different players with fun personalities that we couldn’t not be fans!
