Every month, we answer these questions…
…plus one bonus question. So here we go, this is what’s up with me today…
1. WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
Well that’s easy! To see what we’re eating, you just need to follow along with my Meal Planning Monday every week! This week, I have something for Meatless Monday, Taco Tuesday, Waffle Wednesday, Turkey Thursday and Burger Friday…plus Dreamsicle Bars because well, it’s July and they’re just delish to make!
If you’ve never tried my Meal Planning Mondays, now’s the time. Before we know it, fall will be in full swing and we’ll be back to those busy schedules where the last thing we have time to fret over is dinner.
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Last weekend in Nantucket for sure! We had such a good time and I’m still thinking about it!
3. WHAT I’M LOVING:
The Good Wife! Oh goodness, I’m already on season 2 friends! Remember two weeks ago when I finished Downton Abbey and asked you ladies for suggestions? Well, here’s what happened: I was heading to do cardio all geared up to watch Call the Midwife (per your suggestion) but that show wasn’t included for free with my Amazon Prime membership, so I thought, okay, I’ll try Homeland but that required me downloading the Showtime App (and again, I’m trying to workout at this point, so I really didn’t have time to download apps), then I tried Castle but…that show isn’t free on my app, so my last effort was your suggestion of The Good Wife and oh heavens, it should have been my first choice. I LOVE THIS SHOW! Why didn’t I watch it when it was actually on? Is it weird to say that I think the name threw me off? I love it. Love. It. Thank you for the suggestion! I’m working my way through season 2 now! (And PS: when this series is over, I’m going to stop being lazy and figure out how to watch those other shows…because I bet they’re equally as good!).
4. WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Did somebody say Nantucket?
5. WHAT I’M DREADING:
Shocking for me to type that…but it’s true. As excited as I am about the arrival of fall, I’ll be sad to see summer go. I love the extra time at home with my kids, I love the lazy days, all of the summer activities, no homework, no lunch making (you know…lunchbox making!), and the easy schedule. I’ll miss you summer.
6. WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Ha! My list is always long…but most pressing, I’m working on purging a bit from our closets and playroom before school starts. If my kids had blogs and participated in What’s Up Wednesday, their answer to “What I’m Dreading:” would be, “my mom always telling us we have to purge and organize”. I like to stay on top of the clutter. 😉
7. WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Well, I’m going to be on the Hallmark Channel in two weeks. I’m flying out to LA for the day to film a cooking segment on Hallmark’s Home & Family show. As soon as I have exact details on when it will air (I believe it’s the following day), I’ll let you know.
8. WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
My July Book Review will be next week! And as for what I’m watching…I’m pretty sure we covered The Good Wife, right? #yes #love #stillmissladyvioletthough

9. WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Want to know the truth? Right now, it’s 2:44 PM and I’m on the flight back to Dallas from Boston sitting in my airplane seat blogging in air…while listening to Rod Stewart sing from his Great American Songbook Albums on my iPhone. #truestory #noshame #iheartrod #andstandards
10. WHAT I’M WEARING:
I’m actually able to wear many of the things I bought at this year’s Anniversary Sale now! New fall clothes that work for summer too? Total win!
In my Nantucket post, I was wearing this top but with white jeans and flats (wedges work too!). Now, the jeans, necklace and top here are currently sold out (boo), but the booties and jacket are still available! Don’t forget that I bought the booties in burgundy but they’re available in other colors too (and they’re so comfy!).
One thing that is still in stock plus can also be worn right now? My PJ Salvage pajamas. Every year, they’re my favorite thing from the sale :).
If you haven’t ENTERED TO WIN MY $400 GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY, you better act fast! The winners (2 people will win!) will be picked tonight and announced tomorrow. Hurry, hurry, hurry! Click HERE to enter to win.
11. WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Oh friends, I’m taking care of some kiddos this weekend. Two of my babies are having procedures this week, so I will be Dr. Mom for the next week or so. Prayers always coveted. Thank you in advance for loving on my family like you do. I’ll update you next week and let you know how they’re doing.
12. WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Enjoying our last days of summer.
13. WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Not a whole lot. Just doing our normal thing around here.
14. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT SUMMER:
All of that extra time with these three.
Happy Wednesday friends!
I hope you come back tomorrow because not only am I announcing the winners of our first giveaway, I’m introducing our SECOND giveaway. #thankyounordstrom
