It’s What’s Up Wednesday !
Once a month, my friends Mel, Sheaffer and I host this link up where we share some random and fun stuff that’s up with us today. If you blogged WUW too, make sure you link up at the bottom of the post! Every month, we answer these questions…
…in our What’s Up Wednesday posts!
Kensington and I got home late last night after our fun filled weekend in NYC, so I am up to my elbows in laundry and post-trip stuff today. I’m going to try and get my feet under me today and tomorrow and then I’ll be back here on Friday! So…I’ll miss you tomorrow. If you’re looking for me…check the laundry room 😉 .
Okay, here’s what’s up today…
We are eating summer food!! Earlier this week, I posted my Meal Planning Monday HERE and it’s full of delicious (and easy!) summer recipes your whole family will love.
And speaking of easy and delicious summer food…did you see my recipe today? Um, you need to make these too…
…my Spicy Chicken & Corn Tacos. Yes!!
…our trip to Seattle and Alaska!
This stuff is gold. I read about this humidity shield online and since I live in Texas (hello humidity!), I ordered some and it SERIOUSLY seems to be working! I’m using it in lieu of hairspray and I really think it’s keeping my hair under control even in this humid weather.
I’m also loving fun earrings these days that aren’t heavy (because my ears just can’t do heavy earrings any more!). These have been my favorites…
I love these tassel earrings from BaubleBar (in several colors!)…
…aren’t they fun?! (And that’s my favorite dress that you can see HERE.)
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Well, the week following our vacation, we were up to this stuff…
Basketball camp with Ebby Lee…
…which meant morning errands with these three.
Smith started violin lessons on Thursday, and he was so excited!!
And I feel like I’ve done loads and loads and loads of post-vacation laundry 🙂 .
Haha! Right this minute, I’m dreading the laundry I have to do today from our trip to NYC over the weekend.
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Spending as much time as I can with my kiddos.
It’s summertime and all four kids are at home, which means that’s where my heart is too. I’ve been really trying to do less stuff (whether it’s work related or just unnecessary stuff that I sometimes find myself committing to) and spend as much time as I can with these four people. I have three business trips this summer and other daily work, but I’m really trying to prioritize my time with my kids. We love spending our days by the pool, on the patio, riding bikes, reading books and checking off as much as we can from our Summer Bucket List. I just love these kids.
I’m going on a trip with this guy in July! As much as we love, love, love traveling with our kiddos…it’s nice to getaway with just each other too!
My June Book Review is coming up on Monday, but if you missed this one…
I’m almost done binge watching this show…
I’m on season four right now and loving it! #teamcameron
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Um, some days, I feel like I’m listening to a lot of:
I need a snack.
Where are my goggles?
When does dad come home?
She’s in my room.
Ha! It’s summer and as much as I LOVE having my kids home…the dialog is quite different when they’re home for summer than the rest of the year. These phrases seem to be on repeat most days 🙂 .
I mean, in the summer, I wear swimsuits and pajamas mostly. I go from pjs to swimsuits to pjs again at the end of the day. Speaking of which, did you see that my favorite pjs are now 40% off…
Yes! I wear them every night! The material is very light, so I do not get hot. To see all of the patterns and prints, click HERE. If you’re someone who stocks up on Christmas presents early, these would make excellent gifts!
And then I wore several cute tops on our trip that I really, really loved. If you live somewhere that gets a little cooler at times during the summer (or you’re traveling to such a place), these were all so cozy and soft for our Alaskan vacation…
Love it and that boy of mine!
Pineapple sweatshirt for the win this summer!
Cozy fleece for the win too 🙂 .
And this top was just so cute!! I bought the striped version but it comes in a wide variety of solids too!
This guy turns ONE!!! We are celebrating Samuel Thomas’ first birthday this weekend! How is he already one?!
Summer with my family.
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
That’s it for now!
Bonus question this month: WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE JULY 4TH TRADITION?
Our town always has a July 4th parade that morning and it is without a doubt our favorite tradition!
Okay! That’s What’s Up Wednesday today! If you blogged too, make sure you link up below.
Have a wonderful Wednesday! I will see you again on FRIDAY!
