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.
Um, so I’m starting to think maybe WUW is cursed.
I don’t believe in curses.
But really, though, I think it’s cursed 😉 .
In January, my WUW was a disaster because the day before Andrew had to have emergency surgery.
In February, it was on the anniversary of my friend’s death.
In March, Covid-19 had just shut down our country, and I had sooooooo many vacations that I had to immediately change/redirect/rebook for clients traveling for spring break.
In April, I was homeschooling.
I don’t remember May, but let’s assume it was not good 😉 .
And here we are in June. I’m living in portions of a flooded house.
Yeah…maybe I should just skip WUW the rest of the year 😉 .
You know what this tells me? We all need Ryan Seacrest to count down and that ball to drop because we’re over 2020.
Okay, here we go, WUW for June…let’s all pray that when we meet for July’s post, things are better 🙂 . xo
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
Well, my family is eating out this week. On top of the craziness, Smith has a baseball tournament this week during the week (wrap your brain around that). It’s the biggest tournament of the year, but the timing is always wonky with you know, working a normal kind of job, so between games at odd times and the fact that we really can’t cook at home, we’re flying by the seat of our pants over here.
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Andrew and I keep telling ourselves that we had SO MUCH EXTRA AT HOME TIME this year due to the pandemic, so we don’t need to be sad about missing it now. But honestly, I’m still sad. There is nowhere I’d rather be then home with my peeps.
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
My new Amazon page!
I’ve had several people ask me to please put all of my favorite Amazon things in one post, so last week, I started working on it and today, it’s finished! If you want to see one big post where I have everything I love from Amazon, you can now find that HERE (or by clicking Amazon Faves at the top of my blog). It’s just one big list, but hopefully that’s helpful to many of you 🙂 .
Edit: Oh boo, my Amazon Page is not loading on my site for some reason (of course!), but I will get it up there ASAP. In the meantime, you can check it out HERE!
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
A lot of baseball. I love this boy so much!!
5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
I don’t know? Sometimes, things seem really overwhelming and other times, I feel like we have a checklist and a solid plan, so that gives me peace. I’m dreading this in the middle part where we don’t have a solid routine. I love a routine. I also love peace and quiet. We live in a very peaceful house for the most part. It’s all very zen and calm…I like that. It’s certainly not quite right now 😉 .
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Figuring out our living arrangements. Things are still a bit in the air, but I think we’ll get to live upstairs here at our house for quite a lot of this, and then there are a couple of weeks (not consecutive) when we can’t live here, so we might consider those more of “vacation” times verses “finding a place to live” times. We don’t know…it all is being worked out now, but I’m sure dates/ideas will change as things progress. Most of the downstairs is being gutted, so I’m deciding what (if any) changes I want to make. I’m working on lots of things I didn’t think I would be working on.
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Andrew and I are going to take some time off and fly under the radar a bit with the kids at some point. I don’t exactly know what that will look like or when, but this mama needs some downtime with her fam.
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
A topic I love 🙂 .
I’m still working my way Trying this on Apple TV! It’s so cute!! If you love British Rom Com or Chick Lit, you’ll think this show is adorable too! I believe (but correct me if I’m wrong) that the music is original in the show too, and I also love it!
My JUNE Book Review is next week! Make sure you come on back for that!! I’m so excited to share it with you because it also includes…
…which we updated to include one more…
…so that will be a big day!
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
42 fans/dehumidifiers blow around my downstairs.
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
Right now, pajamas 🙂 .
This summer, I’ve been really loving J Crew! For me, they’re either hit or miss each season, and this season, they’re a big HIT!
I bought this sweatshirt for three reasons: it’s light (perfect for summer), it’s my very favorite color, and I work on vacations all day long, so I thought it was perfect for my job. Now, when I wear it, I just want to go on a vacation 😉 .
This top? J Crew…
…as well as this one…
…and this one too!
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
It’s all we do now 😉 .
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Unwinding. Sometimes, you just know when it’s time to take a little break from life.
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Hmmmm…I think that about covers it!!
I really do hope you all have the best Wednesday! I am going to take tomorrow to catch up on life, but I will be back here on Friday. See you then!! xo
