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, this summer is FLYING by! Like, legit almost over. I’m part totally distraught and part totally excited. You all know I’ve already hit the fall aisle hard at Hobby Lobby. Give me one more month and I’ll have my pumpkins out. #youknowitstrue
Today, here’s a little “what’s up” for you. After today, I’m off until Monday. Did you see us on Instagram yesterday? Erika and I rented a 12 passenger van and have taken the 8 kids on a little road trip. Because we’ve lost our minds. And realllllly want our kids to have some great memories of their crazy moms taking them every summer on a little trip. We’re in the middle of our first annual one now…head to IG to check it out! (And wish us luck!)
Okay, here’s what we’re up to today…
Did you catch my MEAL PLANNING MONDAY this week? Super simple supper recipes just for YOU! Let’s be honest, I’m not eating that. I’m eating food with my kids and Erika (or YaYa as Madeley calls her) poolside this week, but you should try this menu out.
Did you see my post yesterday??? Andrew and I just came back from a fantastic few kid-free days on Nantucket. I love Nantucket. My parents took me there for the first time when I was a kid and I swear, it captured my heart forever. To see our trip recap, click HERE.
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
Erika bought me this a few weeks ago…
…and I love it!! I’ve used a lot of different bubble baths, but this one is so nice! It smells so good and really makes my bath water nice and soft.
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Did someone say Nantucket?
Honestly? That moment when I drop Ashby off for kindergarten. I just pray, pray, pray she has the BEST year. My mama heart is nervous.
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
I just organized the sheets in my linen closet…
…and it made me feel so accomplished. Ha! I had them just stacked in there, but they all fell down all the time and were a big disorganized mess. Now? They’re looking good. I bought these baskets HERE to do it. Next stop? Board game closet. #therearejengapieceseverywhere #everywherebutthejengabox
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
My favorite month is just ’round the corner!
This was hands down the BEST lineup of books I’ve read all year long. You need to read my reviews and then read the comments too. There are so many great suggestions from readers!!
And friends, I’m still watching…
Because it’s 14 seasons long.
I’m on season six right now and am IN LOVE.
But I mean, this will take me years, right?
Love, love, love it so much!!
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
While I’m working. While I’m folding laundry. While I’m emptying the dishwasher. It’s all I hear.
Did you catch my Anniversary Sale picks last week? I found some goodies, friends!! Here are a couple of my faves that are still in stock…
This cute button top comes in many colors and just looks FALL to me!
My leopard scarf is like my favorite thing from the sale! Bonus, it’s only $11!
These cute booties (they come in other colors too!) will be on my feet all fall and winter long!
And of course…
…pajamas!! I bought the palm tree print version but there are many more! I have washed and dried these several times already and they’re still so soft and comfy. These would make excellent Christmas gifts!
One thing I wasn’t expecting to love as much as I do is this…
…guys, this is fantastic! I have been wearing the shades every day and it made packing my makeup for Nantucket SUPER SIMPLE! It’s full sized eye shadows, two full sized blushes and two full sized bronzers in one compact. It’s a $380 value for less than $100! I love this!

11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Recovering from this road trip with Erika and all 8 kids. Ha!
We have a few more fun things planned before school starts. I’m looking forward to all the family time before the busy school year begins.
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
I think that’s it!
Bonus question this month: WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING YOU DID THIS SUMMER?
How could it not be our family vacation to Scotland & Ireland? We had the BEST time!
Okay! That’s What’s Up Wednesday today! If you blogged too, make sure you link up below. I hope you guys have a fantastic day!! I will be back here on MONDAY! See you then!
