What’s Up Wednesday

Posted on Updated on

I’m linking up today with Mel, Shay, & Shaffer for What’s Up Wednesday

WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK: 

A few friends from church got together and we did a freezer meal exchange. It’s pretty much the best ever and I HIGHLY suggest getting involved in one for yourself.  Right now I have a freezer FULL of already prepped meals for my family. This week I’m pulling out Shredded BBQ Chicken, Baked Ziti, & Sweet Corn Tostadas. I just have to thaw and bake. DONE!

WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT: I’m reminiscing about my college days.  Spending time with Biola friends this past weekend made me think a lot about the good ol days.  Ronnie & I met the fist week of freshman orientation (SOS) and I am so grateful for my time there.

WHAT I’M LOVING: All the time in the pool! Growing up one of my favorite memories of summer was endless days in the pool. I remember being so waterlogged and pruney but not wanting to get out.  Now I love the chance to really PLAY with my kiddos.  They are strong swimmers and its been a blast to start doing the silly big kid things like Martha Washington hair and playing mermaid.

WHAT I’VE BEEN UP TO: I have been getting up early! Hadlie wakes up around 4 each morning to nurse so I have been feeding her then getting up for the day.  Some days its a little painful, like when I stay up too late watching the Bachelorette (ahem!). Honestly, I’m going to sound crazy, I love it.  It allows me to get my Bible time in when my house is actually quiet! Get some time blogging and maybe even do a 5 minute pick up around the house (gasp!).  Its my alone time with a huge cup of coffee and so far its really good.

WHAT I’M DREADING: The rain that is supposed to be coming today and tomorrow.  We have had the WEIRDEST weather this July. Here in Southern California we NEED the rain but its summer! We want to be outside and swim!

WHAT I’M WORKING ON: I just bought a new dining room table off of Offer Up. Its darling but needs a paint job, so I’m working on getting that done!

WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT: Mastermind! Every year Ronnie & I attend the Mastermind Summit Conference here in San Diego.  Its 2 1/2 days of being focused on goals and creating a successful life.  We always have the best conversations during that time together and come back feeling refreshed, driven, and ready to go!

I obviously have to attend armed with coffee in hand because DUH!

WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING: I just checked out a couple books from our church library and I have been really enjoying them. I like adding topical books to my quiet time periodically.

We also started re watching the Office lately and I forgot how hilarious those first episodes were!

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO: Ronnie & I made a total splurge purchase and got a Sonos for our house.  Its AMAZING! We are listening to music non-stop around here and I love it! We are jamming a lot of DC Talk and I’ve been really getting into country music lately so that’s always on blast.

WHAT I’M WEARING:
I LOVE Shaffer’s blog and the Nordstrom sale has gotten me into some trouble. Haha. My new top is a current favorite as well as the Daniel Rainn line from Nordstrom Rack. I love the patterns and fun prints. It has spiced up my mom “uniform” of tank, jeans, and wedges.

WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
I’m looking forward to this weekend! We are going down the beach with friends and I’m hosting book club. It should be really fun!!

WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:

I’m looking forward to but also dreading Zoie starting kindergarten. She is only going two days a week but its such a big milestone!! I know some mama years will be shed but she is going to do awesome! She is already asking me daily when school is going to start.

WHAT ELSE IS NEW:

This little one has moved out of our room and in with her sisters. She is also growing out of newborn clothes. Every time one of my kiddos has grown out of the newborn clothes I allow myself some alone time to pack them up a tear up a bit that they aren’t brand new, deliciously smelling infants anymore.

    I’m from So Cal too and agree, this has been the weirdest summer in terms of weather! I can’t believe it was raining and thunder storming here a few weeks ago in July! Crazy. But we do need the rain. 🙂 Cute blog, btw! Have a great day!
