What's Up Wednesday | July

Linking up with Mel, Shay & Sheaffer

What we're eating this week...

Salads, meal replacement shakes, and just lighter fare in general.
I mean, we are heading to the beach soon!

What I'm reminiscing about...
High School 
Check out my answer to "What we've been up to" to see why ;)
These are from my senior year football and basketball seasons :)
And yes, I had braces as a senior :/

What I'm loving...
X light up with excitement!
So, I decided to join Snapchat on a whim the other day.
I have zero clue what I am doing, but those fun filters that change your face sure are fun!
I showed them to X and he loves them!
He seriously wanted to be good so we could play with them some more! lol!
I wonder how long that will last!
Anyone want to give me a tutorial on how to use this app? Anyone?

What we've been up to...
We had a blast with our friends at Mic's 20th High School Reunion a couple weeks ago!
Hearing some of the music from the late 90's sure brings back a lot of memories :)
Makes me wonder if my class will have a 20th celebration next year :/
Graduation Day - June 1997 - One of my besties and I :)

What I'm dreading...
A lot and nothing at the same time.
Life is good people!
Enjoy it!

What I'm working on...
This may sound strange, but adding some pizazz to my wardrobe.
Other than my graphic tees, pretty much every top I own is plain.
While that is me, I would like to venture out a little from my Plain Jane self.
source unknown
How cute are these!?!?
But, I guess that top pic is plainish :/
Any suggestions on where to find cute, inexpensive tops?

What I'm excited about...
We leave very soon!!!!
We are headed to the Sandestin area of Florida for the very first time! Eeek!
Any suggestions on where to eat or things to do are greatly appreciated!

What I'm watching/reading...
The final season of Pretty Little Liars is about the only TV I have been watching this summer that I want to watch.
Otherwise, I have been watching all things Disney!
Especially Elena of Avalor!
Holy moly, that show just started this past weekend and we have watched it at least 20 times!
There is only ONE episode out so far people!
I swear I know every.single.word!

What I'm listening to...
A little new pop music,
mixed with a little old :)

What I'm wearing...
When I am at work - my denim jacket or some sort of long sleeve top. I freeze at work!
At home or anywhere else - shorts, a tee/tank, workout clothing, as little as possible! lol!
Our house doesn't really have AC, so these 90 plus days have been rough!

What I'm doing this weekend...
A lot!
We have two different sets of friends that are in town that we want to see,
we are heading north for a cookout at my mom's house for my step dad (and a few other July birthdays),
and I need to get my packing list together so I know if there is anything else we need for vacation!

What I'm looking forward to next month...
Did I mention we are going on vacation? lol!
We will find out who X's teacher will be in the next couple weeks and meet her,
and X goes back to school before the end of the month!

What else is new...
I tried Evereve Trendsend and got another Stitch Fix this past month.
Oh, and I think I finally found the white skinny jeans I have been longing for! :)
I picked them up from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but it looks like they are sold out :(

Bonus Question: What was your favorite part about summer?
Gone are the days of laying out all day, getting a tan by the pool or lake, and just having fun with friends.
So these days my favorite part of summer is getting to cookout! lol!
I love cooking our dinner on the grill.
Ohio doesn't always allow for that during Spring or Fall too much, so Summer I do it as much as possible.


  1. I'm advocaring right now too trying to get ready for the beach. The thought of wearing a bathing suit is still freaking me out a little. :) You guys are going to have so much fun on your vacation and I'm super jealous. That was definitely my fave vaca of all time.

  2. I LOVE those cheer pictures of you! Totally had the same shoes in my cheer days too ;) Excited for you guys and your vacation- I've never been to that area of FL!
