It’s already Wednesday again but because it’s the end of the month, I’m linking up with Shay, etc. for What’s Up Wednesday where we answer a few fun questions!
What we’re eating:
Andrea of Momfessional’s Southwestern bowls twice, a variation of the bowl but with a Greek/Mediterranean theme, spaghetti, and mostly eating at home.
It was super easy but looks kinda impressive if I do say so myself.
For lunch Tuesday I made this awesome salad from Whitney of Polka Dotty Place blog.
And, now I’m in a rut! Any ideas?
Reminiscing about? Times with my Dad. With every new season, new memories flood in. One of my sisters has started a list of his quotes and the three of us have enjoyed a group text adding more as we think of them.
What I’m loving? Down time, no schedules, not being in a hurry, reading a lot, watching guilty pleasures t.v., not wearing makeup most days
What I’ve been up to? This kinda goes with the one above. It’s rained most days of summer so I’ve been staying in more than usual. But, I’ve also checked several things off of my list.
What I’m dreading? Starting back to school before we know it; mostly because my boys will be seniors and there will be so much to savor, so many deadlines to meet, so many decisions to make, etc.
What I’m working on? Tackling my to do list, decluttering, house stuff, making and going to lots of appointments (Teachers tend to put so much off until summer and then summer can be stressful trying to get it all done sometimes)
What I’m excited about? Heading to Lake Michigan in July with extended family
What I’ve been watching/reading? Bachelorette (Don’t judge! It’s getting good!), Bravo shows, That 70s shows as a family, and reading the books: Where the Crawdads Sing, The Accidental Beauty Queen, Beneath the Wandering Stars
What I’ve been listening to? Watch What Crappens podcast that makes fun of Bravo shows, and country music (I really only listen to country in summer!) and yacht rock on Spotify. If you are around my age, you will love yacht rock and know all the words to every song! Check it out!
What I’ve been wearing?
Here’s what I wore to go to school to help interview new teacher candidates. I’m on the committee. This is my Costco blouse from the spring, my Versona clearance rack pants from last fall that were about $8, and my OTBT consignment wedges for $18.
Here is what I wore to take boys to wisdom teeth stitch removal and shopping at Kohl’s and Old Navy. Old Navy blouse from a few years ago, new Steinmart pants, and my Crocs Sexi. My middle sister told me she thinks they are horribly ugly. Let’s just say we have different styles! This outfit is blah, but I love these pants! I need some more tops to throw on I think. My bottoms selection is great, but the tops seems lacking. And, this is my J.Crew summer purse that I adore. I have actually had two of these. But, this one was $18 at a consignment store maybe 5 years ago. The first one was ruined by an unfortunate German potato salad incident. The red wine vinegar spilled all over the tote and wouldn’t come out. So, when I saw the identical bag at a consignment it was a no brainer!
This is what I wore to go out on Thursday night. My denim TJ Maxx wide legs, Old Navy blouse, and MIA Susan clogs.
This was my Friday outfit to take hub lunch and his dog to work for a bit. It was bring your dog to work day and I offered to bring him food, too. His office has a pond behind it and a nice patio so he sat outside and let Ernie swim. It was a nice treat for hub and Ernie! These are my Soda wedges, my Universal thread cut offs, and a new Steinmart blouse with oranges and lemons! on it. And, my ADVdesigns earrings are my accessory.
I don’t have weekend outfits because I wore these cut offs all weekend. I just can’t get enough! And, I didn’t really go anywhere other than a couple of stores.
What I’m doing this weekend? It all depends on the weather!
What I’m looking forward to next month? Our trip to Lake Michigan
What else is new? Not much else!
Whew, that was long!
Thanks for reading!
