Every month, we answer these questions…
…plus one bonus question.
Before we start, let me say this…this week has kicked my hiney. I’m talking kicked it HARD. #anditsonlywednesday
On top of the hiney kicking, today, our sweet Ashby is having her second procedure done. And friends, I am so not thrilled about it. I honestly do not know what to do. These procedures are extremely painful and since her last one (on July 29), she has pretty much been in constant pain. Her doctors tell us this is normal and that things will get significantly better…but my four year old cries all day long that her arm and hand hurt, so I really have a hard time hearing the “it’s going to get better speech”. We are looking into a second opinion that is out of state…paperwork is moving, appointments are trying to get scheduled…it would be difficult to see a doctor in another time zone…but if that’s what it takes, sign.me.up. So, prayers please as we walk this road. Ashby is as tough as nails. I know people say that all the time…but seriously, if you look up “tough as nails” in the dictionary, you will see this…
So here we go, this is what’s up with me today…
1. WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Did someone say fall? I hear it. It’s coming.
3. WHAT I’M LOVING:
Okay, every year after summer, I go get a new foundation. I’ve told you a gazillion times that I like to wear Bobbi Brown’s tinted moisturizer with Nars’ Hot Sand Illuminator combined during hot weather (I just squeeze a little of both on my hand and mix them with a makeup sponge and then apply). Well, now that fall is here, I wear a little more coverage when it’s not 110 degrees and I am obsessed with this new one I found from Nars. It is both matte and dewey. How is that possible? I have no idea but I think it is. It goes on so light (not heavy at all!) and I am in love. Why have I not tried it sooner??? Love, love, love!
It’s called Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Liquid Foundation, and I don’t think I’ve ever loved a foundation more.
4. WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
We’ve been getting back into our back to school routine. Getting up early, doing homework, after school activities and going to be early. We’re back in the swing of things!
5. WHAT I’M DREADING:
Ah…my sweet girl waking up from anesthesia this afternoon. She is not going to feel well.
6. WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Quite a few things!
And over in travel agency land…
…we opened our 2017 calendar to not only Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line but all Caribbean, Mexican, Hawaiian and Alaskan cruises (on any line). If you have questions, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
7. WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
The Shull five have a super fun September planned! I cannot wait to get this month going because I know it’s going to be fantastic! I love it when we have fun stuff scheduled :).
8. WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
And I’m still binge watching…
…The Good Wife and it is so GOOD! I’m going to be sad when I’m finished.
9. WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
…the soundtrack to Broadway’s Hamilton! The kids and I are obsessed with this soundtrack. Now, not all songs are kid appropriate, so you need to screen it before you let your young kids listen…but, I’m going to need Broadway to produce more shows that are historical because my kids are now well versed in Alexander Hamilton. My older two can tell you all about his young life, his part in American politics and how he died #aaronburr. Whenever they study Hamilton later on in life, they’re going to get A+ :).
10. WHAT I’M WEARING
Okay, I’m going to combine this one with our bonus question today which is “What is your favorite transitional piece?”. All week, we’ve been celebrating fall finds with Nordstrom who has so graciously helped me sponsor not one but TWO giveaways. On Monday, I announced the winner of my teacher giveaway. A sweet, sweet, sweet teacher who is 13 weeks pregnant with twins was our winner :). And then, Nordstrom and I decided to host one more giveaway this month…one winner and her friend will each receive a $300 Nordstrom gift card.
Yes! Yes! Yes! Thank you Nordstrom!
So, I’ve been showing you ladies my favorite fall finds for the last week, but here they are again. I love them because you can wear them now and then later when the weather is cooler.
…plus a few plaid scarves thrown in there for good measure.
These booties are one of my favorite fall finds along with this top that I bought during the Anniversary Sale and the necklace too. It looks all fall but it’s light at the same time. I bought the booties in wood suede but they also come in a gray and black as well.
My favorite transitional scarf…this is my third year in a row to wear it!

11. WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Last weekend, we celebrated Kensington’s birthday with some family and then this weekend, we’re celebrating with a few of her friends. I cannot believe she’s almost eight.
12. WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
September is always my favorite month of the year. I just really think this is going to be a fantastic month. I can’t wait for it to begin!
13. WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Not much :).
