What's Up Wednesday

Today is the last Wednesday of the month!  What???  This makes me so so sad!  I am not ready at all for it to be August.  How did this even happen!
With that being said... I'm linking up with Shay, and Mel to share my What's Up Wednesday post.


 What we're eating this week

I've been trying to recreate the cheese dip that I love so much from one of our favorite restaurants.  I'm close, people.  I'm close!

What I'm reminiscing about

Nothing really.

What I'm loving

I'm loving that the weather has finally gotten nice, and we've been able to play on the water.

What we've been up to





What I'm dreading

I feel bad saying it, but I am dreading volleyball, soccer and school all starting up.  I feel like summer just started, because of our funky weather this year.  This has been the weirdest summer that I can remember.  Their school doesn't start until the 29th of August, so we have a bit more time there, but Gracie starts two a day practices for volleyball here in 2 weeks, so that will instantly limit our time to play and do what we want.  :(

What I'm working on

My tan!  ;)  Does that count?

What I'm excited about

I'm excited for a month or two of nice weather.  I want to be sick of the heat before Fall arrives.  I plan to do my best to make sure that happens.  ;)

What I'm watching/reading

I still watch Friends every night before bed, and I'm still love watching the Bachelorette every week as well.

Right now I'm reading, Always Dakota.  I've just started it, so I'm not sure how it's going to be.  Time will tell.

What I'm listening to

I just bought a book on cd that I have barely started.  I'm hoping it will be good and that I can get used to someone reading to me.  I would prefer to read it myself, but with all the driving back and forth that I do, I decided I'd rather listen to a book than the same music over and over again.
I'm hoping to purchase an audio bible as well, but I need to check with my Dad and see which one he likes.  I guess there are certain audio's where the reader doesn't pronounce the names or places correctly, and it drives my Dad crazy.  I don't want to learn to pronounce them wrong, so I want to make sure I get the right person reading it.

What I'm wearing

Now that Summer has decided to stick around, I'm all about tanks, shorts and sandals.   3 months out of the year is not enough.  I've got to take what I can get, and make each day count.

What I'm doing this weekend

We have family coming into town from Washington.  I'm hoping we can play some pinochle and maybe play on the river a bit.

What I'm looking forward to next month

School supplies.  I'm a nerd, and I fully admit it.  There is just something about new pencils, notebooks, and backpacks that I love.  It must be the fresh start to everything... a clean slate, so to speak.
Also, Emma turns 9 next month.  I'm excited for her.  Birthdays are so much fun when you're little.  It's fun watching them count down the days.

What else is new

A few Nordstrom purchases that I picked up during their sale.  Unfortunately only a couple of them have arrived so I don't have pictures yet, and who knows what I'll end up keeping.

I hope you're all having a great week so far.

Be blessed


  1. Yum! That dip must be good! I listen to the YouVersion app when listening to Scripture :) It's free at least! I got some stuff from Nordstrom too but am returning a lot of it...just didn't fit me like I hoped and felt like I didn't need some of it. Can't wait to see what you got! I am keeping the cute sparkly Kate Spade studs I got!

  2. Cream cheese for days!! What can be wrong about that - yum!! I love all of your photos and the way you spend summer. Seems like absolute perfection to me!
