What’s Up Wednesday-8.26.20

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

What We’re Eating This Week…
Life might be all kinds of crazy right now, but I’m killing it in the dinner department.  My grocery/dinner game is strong.  #fornow

Monday-We had Angel Chicken with brown rice instead of pasta and it was delicious!  My SuperMom powers were in full force when I threw dinner in the slow cooker around noon and we had a yummy meal ready hours later.

Tuesday-Bowen requested meatballs….again, they’re his favorite!  I decided to make Provolone Stuffed Meatballs this week and I ate mine with this spicy ketchup!

Wednesday-BBQ Apple Chicken Sandwiches are on the menu tonight and I’ll serve those with sweet potato fries.

Thursday-Tomorrow we’ll have Pizza Joe’s and Tab and I will eat ours on these sweet potato slices.  Have you tried these?  I’ll put them in the air fryer and they’ll take fifteen-ish minutes.  The kids will have theirs on a burger bun.

Friday-Have been our grilling nights the last few weeks.  The tradition will continue and Tab will throw something on the grill while we hang in the backyard.

What I’m Reminiscing About…

One year ago today, I was at Walt Disney World with these three special ladies for an agent training.  We’ve been texting this week about what an amazing trip we had!  It’s been fun to think back on that!

What I’m Loving…
 I’ve been loving focusing on the positive like all the extra time with my people.  I was in virtual second grade quite a bit this past week.

And this girly looked so pretty all dressed up for church on Sunday.

What We’ve Been Up To…
These girls were the best dog-sitters this past weekend.  Our neighbors went out of town over night so Ebby Lee and Britt watched their dog on Saturday and Sunday.  I’m embarrassed to tell you how many walks these three went on in the span of 36 hours.  You’d be amazed!

What I’m Dreading…
I’m dreading the fall season without all the fun activities.

What I’m Working On…
Preschool…shapes, colors, numbers, ABC’s.  If you’re working on this at home too, you should check out this post.  LOTS of great ideas!!

What I’m Excited About…

Can I say that?  I’m already looking forward to the new year!

What I’m Watching/Reading…
I got distracted with Netflix and am still reading this book, The Girl With the Louding Voice.   

On Netflix, I watched all three seasons of Selling Sunset.  It’s Real Housewives meets House Hunters, in my opinion.

And I just finished watching Waco on Netflix!  This was SUCH a good one!

What I’m Listening To…
I’m listening to Bowen work on his social studies lesson which happens to be fill in the blanks to the Star Spangled Banner.  I wish I could have recorded this for you.  Bless his heart, his lyrics were way off.

What I’m Wearing…
I wore this dress to church the first week our family was back in the building!

I’ve been wearing this tank on repeat with shorts and leggings.

What I’m Doing This Weekend…
Nixon has his first 7-on-7 football game this weekend and it’s the kickoff to fall sports in our family!  He’s playing for the Fightin’ Irish this fall so give us all the navy, green, and gold!

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month…
*My mom is coming to visit for a long weekend!  That’s always fun!

 *This kid will be back in action on the baseball field.

*And this kid has joined a new baseball team this season!  He’s got lots of games next month!

Thanks for reading today!

    Hi. Where do you buy the sweet potato slices? Is that from your normal grocery store or Trader Joe's? That looks good! Thanks!
