If you’re new around here, on the last Wednesday of every month, Sheaffer and I host this little linky party where we share what’s going on with us right now. It’s a little food, a little family, a little what we’re wearing, a little what we’re doing, a little what we’re watching and a little bit of everything else all in one post.
So, that’s what we do.
Now, today is our “last day of school”.
I have all the feelings right now.
Our school is doing a parade where they drive by all of the students’ houses to waive goodbye…I anticipate that it will be a very bittersweet moment for the Shull kids. If it’s your last day too, I’m sending you so much love!
Okay, let’s do this…
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
If you’re grilling these days (like we are!), this is always an easy one…
This one here is also one of my personal faves…
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Last summer, we had the BEST vacation with the Slaughters! I know like so many of you, I’ve personally had to reschedule so many trips over the last few months. If anything, it’s just reminded me that in my core, I love to travel. I’ve been reminiscing a lot lately about this Greek vacation 🙂 .
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
I took some length off my hair and LOVE it! Isn’t it amazing how all of a sudden, you realize your hair is weighing you down?! I feel much lighter 🙂 .
I’m also loving…
…this Amazon dress! Not only is the length great (I’m only 5’3″ and can wear it with either sandals or wedges), but it has pockets too!! It comes in so many cute patterns and colors for a great price. I was really, really pleased with this one! It’s the same brand as…
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
We’ve been wrapping up school. The kiddos all had their final Zoom calls, picked up their belongings and we cleaned out all of the homeschool stuff we’ve been using these last few months. Today, we have the parade and then after that, it’s officially over!
5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
Right at this minute, I’m not dreading anything. I’m really excited because Ashby’s next MRI is coming up and this time, they said they don’t have to put her to sleep for it!! WOOHOO!!!!!!!! This is HUGE for us! We’re really pumped!!
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
On Sunday, we wrap up…
…with our final destination!
After that, on Monday, we’re announcing our HUGE Mix and Match Travel Agency giveaway! Details to come, but I’m really, really, really excited about it, so I hope you are too!
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
See above 🙂 .
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
…I watched this and have mixed thoughts. No spoilers BUT based on what my friends said, I think maybe I should have read the book first instead? Thoughts? Opinions?
My MAY Book Review is TOMORROW! Make sure you come on back for that!! I’m so excited to share it with you!!
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
If I were creating a summer playlist, what would I put on there???
We typically listen to Z100 when we’re by the pool, but what’s your summer/happy music????
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
Well, I tried out a new (for me!) brand and have been so pleased!!
I’ve had so many people ask me to try different workout wear other than always Athleta (I love Athleta!!). In the past, I’ve never tried Lululemon because there isn’t a store super close by and since I love Athleta so much and there is one by me, I just always went there plus, I didn’t like that Lululemon had different sizing. I’m used to walking in and knowing my size, but they have their own unique way of sizing things, so that kind of discouraged me from shopping there too. BUT I branched out and have been loving my new Lululemon finds…
…I started with these align 25 leggings (that I paired with an older Athleta top and my sneakers). Okay, I love these leggings! LOVE THEM! They’re so soft, they breathe, they hold their shape…LOVE! I’ve already washed and dried them at least 3 times and they’ve held up so well!! I bought them in a size 4 (based on their sizing chart.) The only thing I didn’t love is that I wish there was a back pocket for my fob/phone. My print isn’t available any longer, but the style is still there. I loved these so much that I asked on Instagram what else I should consider and these were the top suggestions…
…with these shorts (again, oldies from Athleta). This top was such a great suggestion! I wasn’t sure how it would wash and dry (since it’s kind of perforated), but it’s held up just fine. I like how the bottom fits and the neckline. I am wearing it with THIS Lululemon sports bra too. Both pieces are again fours. This particular sports bra was highly recommended on Instagram as well as these two pieces here…
I still think I’m always going to be an Athleta girl, but these suggestions from you are great new additions too! So far, everything is washing and drying well, the quality seems pretty darn amazing and the sizing (when I followed their size guide) seems spot on. If there is anything else from Lululemon I need to try, let me know or if you have any tips about purchasing from them. Online, it appears things sell out quickly, is that true or is that because of what’s going on right now? I am really pleased with my pieces!!
One last thing, I wore this dress just yesterday…
…and every time I wear it, I get happy! It’s so soft and comfy!! It’s back in stock now in all sizes 🙂 .
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
We’re supposed to have a baseball tournament…I think I’ll believe it when I see it!
Question, I need some birthday gift ideas for Miss Ashby! When I ask her, she cannot think of anything in particular…and because we have three girls, I feel like we already have all the things, so if you have any unique suggestions or things that are brand new that I haven’t heard about, please share! I’m at a loss over what to get her this year!
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Hmmmm…I think that about covers it!! I hope you all have the best Wednesday! I’ll see you back here tomorrow for my book review!! xo
