Happy Last Week of June! How in the world is it already July? I’m linking up with Sheaffer and Shay for their What’s Up Wednesday link-up! Each month they share a long list of questions answering what’s up. Let’s get right to it!

What We’re Eating This Week

If you find yourself without a kitchen and are looking for a little inspiration, I hope this part of my blog post helps. πŸ˜‰

Monday: Bowen had a baseball game in a town about 45 minutes away so we had a team dinner at The Gaylord Texan. One of the parents on the team works there and was able to grab a great spot for us to all sit and eat together.

Tuesday: The boys had baseball stuff and grabbed food on their way. The girls and I picked up Rosa’s on the way to Gary and Marla’s house. We packed up to stay at their house for a few nights. SO, that means we’ll have some meals cooked in a real kitchen over the next few days!

Wednesday: Tab’s asked for salmon. It’s his one big request for dinner so that’s on the menu for tonight.

Thursday: My kids are requesting spaghetti. πŸ™‚

Friday: I’m not sure yet. We don’t really have our typical meal plan going on right now.

What I’m Reminiscing About

This picture was taken on July 4th, 2019. Where does the time go?! I had four little kids just three years ago and now they’re all big. Time, you’re such a thief!

What I’m Loving

The lighting in my house is terrible right now, but I hope you can see. In preparation for KINDERGARTEN this year, I ordered Britt this cute little tee. Isn’t it darling? I got it from this Etsy shop. I’m LOVING how it turned out.

What We’ve Been Up To

I’ve been worried that the heat is starting to get to all of us. We popped into our local CVS last week and as we pulled in Bowen spotted the Redbox. He stared for a minute and then asked, “Um, you can RENT SUNSCREEN?”.

The heat.

I’m telling you.

The Texas temperatures are getting to him. πŸ˜‰

What I’m Dreading

We have to be out of our master bedroom, bathroom, and closet this week. I’ve gotten almost everything of mine out, but Tab still has a lot to do. Tomorrow we’re going back to the house to clear out the rest of the closet. Why am I dreading that? UGH!

What I’m Working On

Vacations, vacations, vacations. Disney just released their 2023 pricing for Walt Disney World so I’ve been working on setting up lots of new trips for clients looking forward to a trip in 2023! We’d love to help you too! You can check us out right here!

What I’m Excited About

What I’m Watching/Reading

I’m not watching this quite yet, BUT guess what premieres on July 6th?! BIG BROTHER!! Who else will be watching?!

I read, The Lies that Bind, by Emily Giffin earlier this month and really liked it!
