What’s Up Wednesday-July 2019

The VERY LAST DAY OF JULY…I can’t believe it!  I’m linking up today with Sheaffer and Shay for What’s Up Wednesday.

What We’re Eating This Week…

Monday:  Chicken Tacos were on the menu.

Tuesday:  Anniversary Dinner OUT! I didn’t realize Bowen had a flag football game so plans for an anniversary night out quickly changed.  Instead we ate a variety of leftovers.  #fancyhuh

Wednesday:  Girls have some fun plans tonight so I’m leaving the guys at home with their own menu planning.

Thursday:  Taco Stuffed Potatoes are up!

Friday:  My BIRTHDAY!  So we’ll be dining out!

What I’m Reminiscing About…

What I’m Loving…
Having everybody all together.

And lazy days spent poolside.

What We’ve Been Up To…
ALL THE SPORTS!  My three big kiddos are all playing a sport this summer so our evenings have been spent at the local indoor sports’ facility watching them each do their thing.

What I’m Dreading…
SCHEDULES…I’m both dreading it and looking forward to it all at the same time.  

What I’m Working On…
I’m working on making sure everything is organized before school starts.  Not sure I’ll get there but we’re working on it.  πŸ™‚

What I’m Excited About…
There are STILL some great items in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale like these boots
And the smocked peplum top.  Remember the head hole portion of this top is really small.  I’m not even kidding when I say that if you have a big head, you should size up.  #forreal

The black skinny jeans with the raw hem are still in stock!

These Sam Edelman booties are in stock in three colors.

And the flat hoops in both silver or gold.

This sweater isn’t available in the green anymore, but it still comes in five other color options.

Pajamas are still in stock, come in four colors, and would make a great gift.

The perfect transitional bootie is still available in this color as well as others.

This pleated tank is still available in two other colors and is perfect for fall in Texas.  The wrinkles are free of charge-if you need help with those, call me.  πŸ˜‰

This jacket is back in stock!

What I’m Watching/Reading…
I’m working on this blog post on Tuesday morning so yes, I’m watching the finale part 2 of the Bachelorette tonight!!  And I’m also watching Big Brother.  It’s starting to pick up a bit!  #finally

I just started reading this book and will have a full summer book review up in a few weeks.  I read a lot of great books this summer and can’t wait to share!

What I’m Listening To…

My very favorite podcasts are interviews/entertainment/girlfriends chatting.  Let me know if you listen to anything similar and shoot your favorites my way, please!  

What I’m Wearing…
Outfits like this...a light breezy top paired with some shorts.  Please note, after taking this picture I ironed my shirt. 

What I’m Doing This Weekend…
Celebrating my BIRTHDAY!  I turn THIRTY-SIX years old on Friday and we’ll have a fun night out.  Then Marla is hosting a little family dinner for both my and Tab’s birthday on Saturday.

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month…
Hmmm…I’m not looking forward to the routine but at the same time I am looking forward to the structure.  Does that make any sense?  I’m excited about FALL on the horizon, football games, new teachers, new friends, sports starting for all my kiddos {have I mentioned Britty is playing soccer}, a fun trip, and more!

Thanks for reading today!

    My FAVORITE podcast is StoryTellers Live. Each podcast is a recording from a live gathering where a woman shares her story of God’s faithfulness in her life. The range of topics is broad. I binge-listened when I first started listening!

    Dax Shepard has a podcast called Armchair Expert that is wonderful! He interviews a huge variety of actors as well as experts in certain fields (doctors, authors, documentary producers, etc) and he is quite a good interviewer!

    Happy early birthday, friend!! I, for one, cannot wait to get all these dang kids out of my house and back into school. (And I say "all" meaning "the neighborhood". πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) Mama needs some peace and quiet. That Inspired Chick

    Related to Bachelor(ette) world, the Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous podcast is really good β€” especially this week's episode about the finale where they bring Tyler C on to interview. They bring people from the Bachelor franchise in almost every week and give us all some behind the scenes details!
