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!
Friends…it’s the end of July! I just want to freeze time. Why must summer end????? I mean, the only thing that is keeping me happy right now at the thought of summer ending is this…
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?
It’s my Smoked Gouda & Bacon Pasta Salad! This could be lunch, a side or even a light supper. Oh my goodness…my heart belongs to smoked Gouda!
Andrew and I went out of town over the weekend and had the BEST time exploring some place new!! I’m going to share lots of pics from our trip to the Hamptons tomorrow! We have been reminiscing about it all week over here 🙂 .
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
These bracelets right HERE have been my favorite thing from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale this year! I love them so much that I’ve gone back and purchased more to gift to friends this fall and Christmas. They are so light that I cannot feel them when they’re on and they don’t bug me when I’m doing things around the house/typing on the computer and such. I did not expect to love them as much as I do!
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
…we’ve been swimming, eating a lot of homemade ice cream, staying up late, sleeping in a bit, playing golf and making the most of these lazy days.
The next time we post a What’s Up Wednesday, my kids will be in school. Nooooooooo! Say it ain’t so?!?!
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Lots of vacations 🙂 .
The Stegall family on their Royal Caribbean cruise this month :).
Our travel agency tends to book a ton of vacations departing in the winter/early spring, so right now…people are booking. I think it happens a lot this time of year because summer is wrapping up and people start to think about the next time they get a trip/time off/vacation. So, my afternoons are filled with lots of vacation talk! Right now, we are sending new clients departing after October 1st to Walt Disney World, Mexican all-inclusives and cruises. If you want us to help you with your next vacation, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂 .
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
I have a BIG GIVEAWAY coming up next week for my 10 Year Blog Anniversary! You DO NOT want to miss it!!!!!
My July Book Review is coming up on Monday, but if you missed this one…
…oh goodness! This show is HYSTERICAL!
(Disclaimer: if you do not enjoy Seinfeld or The Office, I do not think you’ll like Veep. It has that same kind of humor. Also…the language is bad (it’s an HBO show), so please understand this is in no way a family show. If they cleaned up the language, then it would be perfectly fine…but it’s not cleaned up, so please note that!)
Veep makes me laugh out loud! I have found it to be really, really funny!
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
When we’re outside, we listen to this channel on Pandora. It’s the Summer Oldies Radio 🙂 . I’m not one to listen to Oldies in the car, but outside by the pool, it just works!
…I love a good pajama set! (Especially one that is on sale!)
And I’m not wearing my new booties yet, but I’m certainly excited for bootie season (after Labor Day, right?! Is that when we can wear them???)…
I returned two of them but kept the first one (in French Taupe). They were all three so comfy though!!
And look at this…
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
On Friday and Saturday, I’m enjoying time with my family at our house (we’ll probably swim and grill out), but then on Sunday, I’m leaving for a little work thing. More details about that to come!
The last month of summer. Sigh. Where has the time gone?!?!
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Want to shop for a great cause??? This Thursday, at Kendra Scott here in Allen, TX, the Manda Strong Foundation is hosting a Kendra Gives Back Party. If you are local, show up and shop between 5 and 8 PM…but if you are not, YOU CAN CALL TO PLACE AN ORDER!! See the details above! One of the last things Manda said to her sweet dad was that she wanted him to help other young mothers fighting cancer…and Ed Davis has made it his life’s MISSION. Help him (and all of her other friends and family) as we support other precious mamas with cancer. Shop in store or online THIS THURSDAY!
The extra time with my kids.
Listen, of course they drive me crazy sometimes, but I absolutely LOVE being a mama and I know this time is going to fly by, so I really and truly try to soak up every minute. They are all so unique, all so sweet, all so different and all so special. I love this extra time with them over the summer.
Okay! That’s What’s Up Wednesday today! If you blogged too, make sure you link up below.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
