What's Up Wednesday | July

Before I get started I just wanted to say thank you all for your wonderful thoughts and prayers for the family from my hometown.

Today I am back to my light hearted ways linking up with Mel, Shay, and Sheaffer!

What were eating this week?
Way too much fast food and pizza :(

What I'm reminiscing about - 
Working out. No joke!
I miss it!
I am looking forward to things settling down (just a little bit) so I can at least take advantage of my treadmill and swimming pool.

Anyone want to come over and make my pool like this one? ;)

What I'm loving - 
Having bags and bags of clothing and such to donate.
Makes my heart happy and my house so much cleaner :)

What we've been up to - 
Moving, moving, moving! :)

What I'm dreading - 
Not gonna lie - selling our house.
While there are always things that can be improved, I will always love our house.
It was where we came home to after getting married.
And it was where we brought X home to after he was born.
There are a lot of great moments shared and memories made in that house.

What I'm working on - 
I finally DIY'd some crates I picked up from Joann's this past weekend and I absolutely love the results!
Expect a blog post next week :)

What I'm excited about - 
For X to start preschool at his new school in August!
While I hate to change schools and take him away from some of his friends, we have to do what is best for him.
He needs more structure!
And I know that social butterfly will make some new and wonderful friends in no time!

What I'm watching/reading - 
Of course I am glued to the TV on Tuesday nights for PLL and Thursday nights for The Astronaut Wives Club!
Mic also got me started on the show Banshee on Cinemax.
We just finished the first season and have binge watched the first 4 episodes of the second season.
While it totally leaves me with nightmares (serious scaredy cat here), it has sucked me in enough to keep watching.

What I'm listening to - 
I have a confession to make - my 3yo son loves Taylor Swift! lol!
Every time we are in the car he requests I find TSwift on the radio.
At home he has even named one of his monster trucks Taylor Swift!
I have another confession - I have no intention of steering him in a different direction :)

What I'm wearing - 
I have been living in shorts, tees, and gym shoes this past week while we haul our stuff around.
Today I actually had to come into work, so I am rocking my striped dress from Old Navy and my converse :)

What I'm doing this weekend - 
Officially moving.
This past week we have been moving some clothes and a few small things to the new place, but this weekend some of our big stuff is heading over as well!
Eek! I can't believe I only have a few more nights of sleeping in my house!

What I'm looking forward to next month - 
Even though we will be in the midst of trying to sell our house (showings, open houses, etc.), I am looking forward to knowing where I am going home to each night.
Before or after dinner swimming in the pool.
Eating real food again.
Getting X ready to start preschool.
I get the feeling that August is going to be a good, but still busy month :)
Just the way I like it!

What else is new - 
My cousin is getting married in the DC area (Hamilton,VA to be exact) in September.
Any suggestions for things to do, or places to eat?
I think we are going to try to make it a long weekend getaway :)

Bonus Question - What will you miss most about summer?
Funny question since it didn't seem to begin in Ohio until just these past few weeks.
Right now, I won't miss a thing :)

So what's up with you this month?
What are you looking forward to in August?


  1. I most definitely have that Old Navy dress too!! Good luck with all the moving!!

  2. Yay for moving and getting a clean fresh start in a new home to make new memories! Good luck and I hope it's not too hot for you guys!
