What's Up Wednesday

*This post contains affiliate links.

I feel like life has been going at warp speed here. We are getting closer and closer to Fall. Plus we have so much going on in the near future. But for now, it is time for another round of What's Up Wednesday.

What's Up Wednesday

WHAT WE ARE EATING THIS WEEK...

Sunday: Homemade pizzas
Monday: Korean Beef Bowls by Skinnytaste
Tuesday: Turkey burgers with sweet potato fries
Wednesday: Dinner out with just my girls.
Thursday: Unsure as it is Rory's first softball game of the season.
Friday: Not sure.
Saturday: Not sure.

WHAT I'M REMINISCING ABOUT...

My wedding. August brings my 5th year anniversary and it brings back all the memories. Especially since my sister just got married in June. I have no idea what we are doing for our anniversary yet, but I know, I need to figure out a gift that goes with either wood or silverware since those are year number 5 items. Suggestions?

WHAT I'M LOVING...

Everything that I got from Nordstrom's Anniversary sale. I wasn't sure how much I would love the Moto Jacket or the Blazer I got, but they are huge hits. I can't wait to wear both to England next month and in the Fall.


A few weeks ago, I bought some linen pants from Loft as they were having a great sale in stores. I love these pants. They are extremely comfy. I sized down to a XS when I am normally a small at Loft.

WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO...

July brought lots of beach days, a great 4th of July evening out, an unexpected trip to Elko for Rory's aunts funeral and lots of HOT summer days.

WHAT I'M DREADING...

Not really much. Maybe just the super hot weather accompanied by all the fires that are near us.

WHAT I'M WORKING ON...

Prepping for a huge work trip to England, getting more posts ready for the future, planning a birthday dinner and prepping for surgery (fingers crossed).

WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT...

My birthday, my anniversary and our next Graeagle trip.

WHAT I'M WATCHING/READING...

I am still reading The Woman in the Window. I don't know why I haven't finished it yet as I have a few books already downloaded and Dana sent me Dead Girl Running. I hope to finish it this week and move onto the next book.

As for TV, a few of my favorite right now are The Affair, Million Dollar Listing New York, Masterchef, the Bachelorette, Staircase and Bachelor in Paradise starts in August!

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO...

Nothing at the moment, but my friend recommended I listen to the podcast Stuff You Should Know.

WHAT I'M WEARING...

All the Summer clothes. I am trying to stay cool with the constant high 90s to 100 degree temps we have been having.

WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEKEND...

We don't have much planned, so maybe take the girls to the trampoline park.

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

My birthday, my anniversary and our second Graeagle trip of the Summer.

WHAT ELSE IS NEW...

Not much. I am a pretty open book.

BONUS: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING YOU DID THIS SUMMER?

That is a hard one as we did a lot of fun things so far. But I would go with our first Graeagle trip. Followed closely by my sister's wedding.

  5. I don't know how it happens every year but the summers seriously go by too quickly. I can't wait to hear about your England trip. Low key weekends are the best. We have another one coming up and it is a beautiful thing!
