It’s What’s Up Wednesday!
Awwwww! I love What’s Up Wednesday 🙂 . If you don’t know what it is, 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.
Today’s post has so much goodness in it, so get comfy…
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
We are grilling, grilling, grilling right now. I always get excited for the start of summer when dinners get really simple around here. It’s a lot of proteins grilled with a salad or quick side dish on the side. If you haven’t checked out some of these recipes off the grill, you should!
And then last but certainly not least…
…if you’re spending time with family and/or friends this weekend and need a red, white and blue menu, I have it HERE!
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Awwww! I was so proud of my brother on Sunday!! He had some VERY big shoes to fill and preached at Fellowship Church for Ed Young. HE DID AMAZING!!!!! If you want to watch it (and you should!!), it’s about finding your purpose and you can view it HERE. It was really such a sweet, sweet service, but the fact that my grandparents who are in their 90s were there to watch was just the icing on the cake. In fact, my grandparents are 96 and 93 and in attendance on Sunday, they had four out of their five grandkids. Isn’t that cool? I thought the whole morning was just really, really sweet. I’ve reminisced about it many times this week.
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
Okay, I did an unveiling of this on Instagram last week, but friends, I AM GIDDY OVER…
…eeeeeeks! My favorite face palette (that you’ve heard me gush about for TWO YEARS!) is now available in lighter/more summery shades! Woohoo!!!! So, I love a lot of palettes but this one is my fave because it literally has everything in it. You get three eye shadows, one blush, a bronzer, powder and even highlighter (which I often use as an eye shadow!). I love the original one so much that I’ve used it all and had to buy a second one to replace it with, so I’m extra giddy about these shades here. Not only are the shades great (the BEST bronzer I’ve ever worn is in this palette!), but it’s so thin and light that you can easily throw it in your carry on bag, purse, gym bag. I love it! So, you can find the original palette HERE or this newer version (IN PRETTY BLUSHED HERE).
Also, I told you I would let you know when…
…NARS had their Jumbo Orgasm Blush back in stock, and it’s there now! I know it might seem weird to some of you to buy the Jumbo Size…but if you’ve ever bought this blush before (my VERY favorite!), then you know that Jumbo is the only way to go 🙂 . This stuff looks good on all skin tones!! Love. It.
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
…we finished the school year!!!! On Friday, Smith graduated from elementary school and the whole gang wrapped up their year.
It was a very sweet and special day for the Shull four.
My heart. This just rips out my heart.
I’ll have TWO middle schoolers this fall!!
5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
We go today for Ashby to be fitted for another compression garment. Compression garments are a topic I’ve stayed away from here in blog world because we hate them, struggle with them, cry over them and basically they’re terrible…BUT…this new phase of Ashby’s treatment plan is to wear them almost all day long. I don’t know. We’ll see. Ashby is SUCH A TROOPER ABOUT EVERYTHING but she hates compression garments. The doctors are always so sensitive to that and allow us to use them sparingly, but they really want to see if she can wear this new one daily. We’ll see. Ugh. Today, she gets measured for it…and it takes about a month to make it, so I’ll keep you posted.
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Get ready, next week, Season 2 of The Bestie Breakdown begins! More info to come, but I have been working A LOT on our podcast!!
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Can I just say “all things summer”?
I’m excited about the time off.
The time with family and friends.
The easy schedule.
All. Of. It.
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
My May Book Review will be here TOMORROW!!
Make sure you tune in for that!
I have some beach reads you’re going to want to grab!!
If you want to see one list of every book I’ve read so far this year, you can find that right HERE!
Last week, I watched probably the best documentary I’ve ever seen on Netflix…
…it’s a four part series, and I cannot say enough nice things about it. I told my dad to watch it and he did. Twice. I really hope you all watch it too!
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Right this minute? I’m listening to the painters finishing up the laundry room! We are giving the laundry room a mini makeover now that my office is no longer in there, and they’re painting the final coat today. I’m so excited about this project! Also after this last year and ripping my entire house out, one little laundry room makeover feels so easy. Agh!
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
Tees and shorts on repeat! Guess what though? J Crew is having their Memorial Day Weekend Sale right now, so you can get 25% off with code weekend! My tank here comes in lots of other colors plus, how much do I love my earrings? I already had them in the taupe color, but now, I have them in white too! (You can find my necklace HERE.)
My puff sleeve sweatshirt is another J. Crew find that’s on sale! It also comes in multiple colors, but this dusty rose stole my heart. You can find my shorts HERE.
…changed into this super soft jumpsuit after church for my lazy Sunday afternoon 🙂 .
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
We have a very full weekend ahead of us! Kensington is going to church camp for the first time (eeeeks!), we have lots of pool time on the calendar, a trip to the lake…so much!! I love a three day weekend 🙂 !
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Settling into our summer routine. It’s only been two days, but we’re slowly getting the hang of it. I don’t know about you, but I have a summer routine and a school year routine. I feel like that’s always the easiest way for me to maximize my time.
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
