What's Up Wednsesday

Wowzers!  It is already the last Wednesday of the Month and I'm freaking out just a little bit.
As much as I don't want to even think about it... it's time to start planning all the back to school stuff.

Since July is almost over, I'm sharing all that we've been up to this month.

 I'm linking up today with Mel, Shay & Sheaffer.

 What we're eating this week

I brought Gracie and Belle (my niece) out of town for a few days for a volleyball camp, so we are eating out for all our meals.  With everything we have going on this week and weekend, I don't foresee having to cook a meal until Monday.  :)

What I'm reminiscing about

The beginning of summer.  Yes, I know summer is still here, but I am sad that I will eventually have to welcome in Fall.  I know so many of you look forward to Fall, and honestly I do too.  But I do not look forward to the long cold winters that we have.  As I'm typing this, I'm laughing that I'm already complaining about being cold and winter isn't even close to being here yet.  Haha! 

What I'm loving


I love warm weather and sunny days.  I love having my kids home.  I love not packing lunches and checking homework.  I love that we get to be a bit lazy.  I love summer!

What we've been up to

We've been busy camping and playing on the water.  We're not partial... lake or river, we like it all.

What I'm dreading

Even though it's only the end of July, it feels like summer is wrapping up.  Our city pool, which happens to be our only pool closes in 3 weeks. Volleyball practice starts in 3 weeks as well, and once that starts, it truly feels like the beginning of a new school year.

I'm not dreading either of those things, it's more the fact that our short little summer seems to be closing down and that makes me sad.

What I'm working on

Not much of anything.  I'm just enjoying our lazy days.

What I'm excited

Honestly, I'm not really excited about anything.  I'm just kind of in the moment, and I'm okay with that.  I've been guilty about wishing time away while I look forward to one thing, and I end up missing the moment that I was in.  I'm trying not to do that as much.  Not to say that I still don't do it, but I'm trying to work on it at least.  ;)

What I'm watching/reading

I just started watching Hart of Dixie.  So far I'm liking it.  It's cute and funny.  Have any of you watched it?

As far as reading, I'm just finishing my bible study on 2 Timothy.

I read High as the Heavens by Kate Breslin, and you can click here to see my review.
High As the Heavens

At the moment I'm currently reading Egypt's Sister by Angela Hunt.  I'll let you know what I think once I've finished it.

What I'm listening to

As I'm working on this post, I'm sitting by the pool in the hotel, listening to the kids play in the water.

What I'm wearing

I never take pictures of what I'm wearing, but one day I took this selfie for a friend of mine.  She had given me this shirt that says Gilmore Girls And Coffee.  I love it, so I sent her a picture of me wearing it.  That is the only reason I had a picture for this question.  ;)

What I'm doing this weekend

Dan will be finishing up the Governors Cup Golf Tournament in Kalsipell, and the kids and I will head up and play at the Lake until he's done.

What I'm looking forward to next month

Emma's birthday is next month and she'll be 10.
It's a big thing for my kids when they hit the double digits... so this is her big year.

What else is new

Gracie has her first set of wheels, and we have one excited girl.
She's completed all of the hours that she needs, so now we are just waiting until a set date in August when she can go down to get her drivers license.

What's new with you?  Are you ready for Fall or are you like me, wishing Summer would stick around a lot longer?



  1. I'm soooo with you on wishing summer would last and last... so much fun

  2. I loved Hart of Dixie (you know its on the Gilmore Girls set). I was so sad when it ended! When you are done, have you seen When Calls the Heart? That's my new favorite and Chesapeake Shores (both are Hallmark). Sounds like a perfect summer and it's bittersweet watching it wrap up for sure! xoxo ERIN

    1. So ready for Chesapeake Shores to come back on. I just looked it up...Aug 6th. YIPPEE!!!

  3. Your summer is going so sweetly. You look darling in that tee and I love your distressed jeans. You need to take more selfies!!!!

  4. Looks like you have been having a great summer! I have Heart of Dixie on my to-watch list! I just binge watched Riverdale though and it was so good! You should check it out!

    1. Thanks! I will for sure. I hadn't heard of Riverdale before. I'm always on the hunt for a good show.

  5. I think I watched the first episode of Hart of Dixie but then I stopped. I need new shows to check out!

  6. I love Beth Moore & Gilmore Girls! Your lake pics are beautiful, enjoy the summer sunshine while it's here! Have a great week!

  7. Some people just love babies, but I love that my kids are all growing up! I think it will be great for you to have a driver plus a double digit chica! How exciting!

  8. I am right there with you about winter and already dreading it. Last year was TOUGH! We had snow and ice forever and I am still over it. Hahahaha! I love that Gilmore Girl shirt with those jeans. Such a great outfit. And I started Hart of Dixie last month and love it. I have a hard time finding time to watch it (I got sucked into Nashville) but will be back to it soon! I hope you have a great weekend! P.S. those lake pictures are amazing!

  9. I loooooooooved Hart of Dixie! It is a little cheesy, but I fell in love with the characters and I was really bummed when it was over. I wish it had gone on longer. Yay for Gracie almost having her license!! We've decided that Savanah needs to wait a while. She still has her permit, but she is NOT ready to have a license.
