What's Up Wednesday

I can't believe today is the last day of July. Time is flying by and I know August will go by quickly as well since we have a lot going on this month. August is a favorite month of mine because it holds my birthday and my anniversary!!

What's Up Wednesday

WHAT WE ARE EATING THIS WEEK...

Sunday: Family reunion dinner.

Monday: Family reunion dinner.

Tuesday: Family reunion dinner.

Wednesday: Probably take out since I will be doing laundry all evening and getting ready for the work day on Thursday.

Thursday: It is Rory's first softball game of this summer season, so the girls and I will probably get salads and grilled cheese (for them).

Friday: It is my birthday, so I am going out with friends!

Saturday: Going out with Rory for my birthday dinner!

WHAT I'M REMINISCING ABOUT...

August always makes me reminisce my childhood because I was born in August. And just 4 short days later is my dads birthday. So August is all about birthdays for my family. And then just two weeks later is my wedding anniversary. This year will be #6 for us. What is the item/thing for #6? I need to start thinking of a great gift.

WHAT I'M LOVING...

These Summer days. I feel like Summer is flying by in the blink of an eye, but we are soaking in all the sunshine, beach days and fun that we can. And Lake Tahoe. I am always loving Lake Tahoe. I feel so blessed to live near the most amazing lake ever!

WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO...

July brought us the 4th which we spent in Tahoe.



Then the celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe followed by a week of being a solo mommy. The girls first movie in a theater. And then a family reunion. I didn't post many weekend updates this month. I did post on IG though. So follow me there.

WHAT I'M DREADING...

Just how hot it has been and how hot it will be in Phoenix. Ugh.

WHAT I'M WORKING ON...

Just getting ahead on my blogging schedule and a few collaborations.

WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT...

Our next Graeagle trip and the start of football. Our first Nevada home game is August 30th against Purdue. I can't wait.

WHAT I'M WATCHING/READING...

So I have been pretty bad lately. I got several books on loan from my library and I would start some of them and not finish. I just couldn't get into them. Like Into the Water. But I did read one book this month and it was It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover. If you remember correctly, I LOVED Verity by the same author. I read the book in less than 24 hours. It was that good. Read it.

As for TV, I have been watching my usuals like Jane the Virgin, Big Little Lies, Master Chef, Younger and The Killing. The Killing came out several years ago, but it is available on Prime. I binged the first three seasons and I am on season 4 now. Soooo good. 

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO...

It is pretty quiet around here.

WHAT I'M WEARING...

I have been shopping a lot lately, so you can read my Friday Favorites for the month and see all the goodness that I purchased.

WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEKEND...

It is my birthday weekend, so I am celebrating ME and then heading out on a work trip on Sunday.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH...

August brings my birthday, my dads birthday, my anniversary, our second Graeagle trip and FOOTBALL!

WHAT ELSE IS NEW...

Not much.

  2. So many great things coming up for you in August! I love seeing your beautiful wedding pics. I've been the same way over the summer with posting. It's so hard to take time away from these great summer days to be behind the computer. Insta has been a lot easier for me. Stop it! You met Carlton! How fun! Sierra Beautifully Candid

    1. I never do either. I LOVE wedding photos. He was such a great guy! Well, they wanted to sit next to me and to my mom. That is why they were far apart.

  5. Loved seeing all the wedding photos! Someday I'd like to visit Tahoe. Dave has been there but I haven't. I didn't like Something In The Water either, though I did finish it. Verity is my favorite by Colleen Hoover but I read It Ends With Us too, I heard it's becoming a movie!
