What’s Up Wednesday-7.28.21

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

What We’re Eating This Week…
I’m living my BEST VACATION LIFE and am not cooking a THING!  I will be hitting up the grocery store tomorrow and I’m sure we’ll have things like a lean protein with veggies after so many days eating out.

What I’m Reminiscing About…

The last time we went on a big vacation with Gary and Marla was March of 2017.  It’s been a while so this has been an extra great week with them.

What I’m Loving…
I’m still loving all things SUMMER!  During the school year you’ll never find us paddle boarding on a school night at 7:45p.m.  Summer is so sweet.

What We’ve Been Up To…
Right now we’re heading home from a big family vacation from Salt Lake City to Glacier National Park.  You can follow along via Instagram!

What I’m Dreading…
The laundry when we get back home later today…womp womp.

What I’m Working On…
I left all caught up with Mix and Match Travel work but over the last ten days many things have built up.  I’ll be spending the next few days playing catch up.  πŸ™‚

What I’m Excited About…
These two fresh-faced babies are celebrating SIXTEEN years of marriage on Friday!

What I’m Watching/Reading…
BIG BROTHER!!!  I’m way behind from being out of town but will catch up as soon as I can.  

My aunt has been telling me for years to read this series by Nancy Thayer and I’m finally doing it.  The Hot Flash Club is about a group of four women who become friends and have all kinds of challenges facing their 50’s.  If you haven’t read it, it’s super cute!

What I’m Listening To…

What I’m Wearing…
I’ve been really into tennis skirts lately…This pink skirt is a new FAVORITE

What I’m Doing This Weekend…
Celebrating this guy turning 40!  Excited to have a few days to get away before our lives get crazy.  He did get word this past weekend that family can travel this season in the NFL.  Keeping my fingers crossed it works out for us to make at least one game this season!

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month…

School starting back in August is always a little bittersweet.  I love all the relaxed vibes of summer but I’m never my better mom self than when I’m on my “A” game the first quarter of the school year.  I’m looking forward to seeing Nixon tackle middle school, Ebby Lee get to participate in athletics, Bowen hit up third grade, and Britty conquer TK.  It’s gonna be a great year.

Thanks for reading today!  See you Friday!
