What's up July?!

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

Linking up with Mel, Shay & Sheaffer for...

What we're eating this week...
Parm Garlic Chicken Wings
Smoked Sausage with veggies
Crockpot Italian chicken with potatoes and carrots
Leftovers :/

What I'm reminiscing about...
High School Years
This weekend Mic and I came across the NBA dunk contest from the late 90's.
Oh my goodness!
We couldn't stop watching!
The clothes, the video cameras, etc.!
Makes me feel really old!
But those dunks...were AMAZING!!!!
The ones today don't stand a chance compared to them :)

What I'm loving...
Watching X at soccer camp this week.

He is having a blast and is learning a lot :)

What we've been up to...
Work, work, work :(
I am ready for a little fun!
Mic, X and I did take a Sunday drive this past weekend and it was wonderful!
Sometimes you need to get away from the boring routine and just not care if the laundry isn't done!
We stopped at one of our favorite spots and enjoyed the homemade chips with Alfredo sauce and blue cheese crumbles.
 And followed it up with some seriously yummy meatloaf, mashed potatoes and onion straws!

What I'm dreading...
Nothing and everything :/
I am a worry wart by nature :(

What I'm working on...
More yoga.
My stress levels recently are insanely high.
I am trying to do at least 30 minutes of yoga every night to wind down and decompress as much as possible.
What's your favorite yoga videos or YouTube channels to follow?

What I'm excited about...
We are super close to my favorite time of the year!
In Ohio you can snap your fingers and the weather instantly changes to Fall.
While I don't mind summer I can't wait to see the leaves change colors, the cooler temps, and all the fun holiday activities (Halloween is seriously a close second to Christmas for me).
And I finally can wear my #NSALE purchases ;)

What I'm watching/reading...
Shark Week has taken over our house this week!
Did any of you watch Michael Phelps vs the sharks?

And X and I watched Descendants 2 on Disney over the weekend and he loved it!
He can't stop singing the songs!
And he was pumped when it came on in the car :)
And when we aren't watching those, we are watching reruns of Fixer Upper, Rehab Addict, Property Brothers, Rustic Renovation, Tiny Luxury, Stone Age, and Pool Kings :)
You can't tell we are getting ready for a big home remodel can you??!?!?!

What I'm listening to...
X loves music like me, so we listen to all kinds of things now!
From Disney

to country

to rock

We love it all!

What I'm wearing...
I would love to say that I am wearing the new jackets I picked up in the #NSALE but it is just too stinkin' hot still :(
But I have been rockin' my new booties I picked up from Zulily!
They are currently on sale at Nordstrom :)

What I'm doing this weekend...
I don't technically have any plans!
Which hopefully means we can get a few things done around the house :)

What I'm looking forward to next month...
Going to a Cleveland Indians game with my dad,
taking X to the Columbus Zoo,
Kindergarten orientation,
And the first day of school!
X can't wait to get back to school to see all his friends!

What else is new...
Same ole' same ole' here.

Bonus Question: What's your favorite thing about summer?
Grilling our meals!
Summer is pretty much the only season in central Ohio when you can use your grill.
Every now and then you might have a good day or two in the Spring or Fall (sometimes even Winter), but summer is your best shot usually.
So I try to take full advantage and make everything on the grill.
From hamburgers, to steaks, to BBQ chicken, to ribs, to low country boil skewers, and even pizzas!
Nothing is off limits!
