What's Up Wednesday [7-29-2015]


I am linking up with Shay, Sheaffer, and Mel to give a little update on what's been going on in my neck of the woods!

What we are eating this week...

Monday: Chicken lettuce wraps 
Tuesday: Homemade grilled chicken tenders with steamed broccoli, roasted cabbage wedges, and zucchini chips
Wednesday: Turkey burgers, sweet potato fries, and green beans
Thursday: Spiral noodles with turkey meat sauce (we have gymnastics so it has to be something quick and easy!)
Friday: Cauliflower pizza crust pizza for Pete and I and homemade little pizza's for the girls

What I am reminiscing about...

All things Fall! I am ready for cooler weather, soup, and football!

                                                    I love fall!

What I am loving...

Cinnamon Hazelnut coffee. Gimme.

What we've been up to...

A lot of swimming, gymnastics, organizing closets, and fall clothes shopping. I feel like this this the first season I am going to have to buy basically all the staples for the girls wardrobe's. We have had hand-me-downs from a bunch of different amazing people, but now that Zetta is bigger, we have caught up to our friends who passed down. I am extremely thankful we have made it this far (almost 3 years) with buying MINIMAL clothing for the girls. I really try to force myself to not go over board, even if it is really cute because most of the time it really isn't worth it and they have MORE than they need already. Holiday time is really the only time I catch myself splurging more than I should!

What I am dreading...

The thought of starting back at the gym. I weighed myself this weekend and I have gained 16 pounds this summer. Wait, WHAT? Yikes...I thought summer was when you lost weight?

                                       weight loss motivation. I'm making a sign with this on it. Craft time is a necessity:) @hillary warren @christi williams

What I am working on...

Keeping up with this blog, spending less money on things I do not need, and my patience. I have lost them all. :)

                                      It's about the good person you are. And no one will remember you for what things you had, but how you made them feel.

What I am excited about...

FOOTBALL! I surprised Pete with tickets to the Mizzou homecoming football game for his birthday and it is the weekend before our anniversary in October, so it is kind of a double dip. We have NEVER left the girls for more than one night, so we are LONG over due for a weekend away with just the two of us! Not to mention, it is doing one of Pete's most favorite things, so its guaranteed to be a good time!!

What I am watching/reading...

I wish I could say I am reading something, but I just do not make the time for reading right now. Wah.
As far as what I am watching, Bachelor in Paradise starts soon and Big Brother is starting to really pick up and get good! I also started Parenthood on Netflix in my free time..wait, what is free time again?!...I am on Season 1 Episode 2 HA!



What I am listening to...

Random Podcast's at work, Carrie Underwood pandora, also Phillip Phillips radio as well. Also, Zetta is obsessed with sing-a-long songs on You Tube right now. They.Never.Stop. --Old McDonald, Baby BumbleBee, Five little Monkeys, catch my drift.

What I am wearing...

A lot of dresses, tank tops, shorts, and work out capri's! Pretty much as basic as a girl can get when it comes to my wardrobe. I am learning to accept it and love my style. I think this year I have really figure out what I like, and feel comfortable in, so that's a plus!

What I am doing this weekend...

NOTHING! AH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I could not be more excited!

What I am looking forward to next month...

Pete's birthday, my sister's birthday, a handful of my friend's have birthday's, everyone's back to  school posts, and I am going to a Cardinal's game with work!

What will I miss about Summer...

I will miss the sunshine and swimming pool, tan skin, and sandals. I will not miss the 100 degree weather, and the blazing hot car seats.


  1. CAN'T wait for bachelor in paradise !! haha it's going to be so good :)

  2. I can't wait for Fall either! Based on the previews, I think this year I'm going to have to watch Bachelor in Paradise!
