What's Up Wednesday {July 2016}

It's the LAST Wednesday of JULY... and school starts Monday:( 

It's another edition of What's Up Wednesday and I'm linking up with MelShay, and Sheaffer

We answer the following questions!! 

So Let's get Started!! 

What We're Eating:

Monday: Tacos
Tuesday: Chicken Nachos
Wednesday: I have no idea
Thursday: I have no idea
Friday: Out to Eat :)

We had a lot of ground beef and chicken leftover from the shower, so we are eating that up this week! 

What I'm Reminiscing About:

My Babies!
Ian is starting Middle School and Ella is going into 3rd grade

I mean this trip to Clearwater to see Winter the dolphin was just a few months ago, right?!?!?! ;)
It was really April 2012

What I'm Loving:

This little Blogging world! I just started blogging in January but I have made so many "new" friends in such a short time! I also co-host a Recipe Club with one of my blogger friends, Johannah! I was also the feature blogger this past Friday for H54F with Tif, Della, and Katie

What We've Been Up To:

We hosted a Couple Shower (Fiesta Style) for my brother in law this past week! So we have been getting the house ready for that! 

What I'm Dreading:

Back to School! 
Really Ian starting Middle School and the drama that will follow :(

What I'm Working On:

Etsy Orders! One order is for 25 "After School Snack" wine glasses! 

What I'm Excited About:

As much as I LOVE summer... I am OVER it as soon as my kids go back to school!! 
Kids go back to school=FALL!! 

What I'm Reading:

I just finished Kelly Elliott's new book 'Searching for Harmony'
It was AWESOME! 
(disclaimer- it has strong language)

What I'm Watching:

The Bachelorette
I am so THANKFUL this season is almost OVER! 
I feel like it is the never ending season:(

What I'm Listening To:

I still can't get enough of 
Florida Georgia Line's new song 
It's on repeat!! 
But I just heard on the radio that they were disrespectful to law enforcement and that is very upsetting:(


What I'm Wearing:

LuLa Roe Leggings!!
I got them from my new friend Melissa!  
They are like BUTTER!! 
My black pair just arrived yesterday and I may NEVER take them OFF!!!

What I'm Doing This Weekend

Friday Night the girls and I are headed to see 'Bad Moms'....I know we are horrible but it looks HILARIOUS 

Saturday we are spending the day on the lake with our church's youth group! 
Sunday- church and make sure we have everything ready for the FIRST day of school :(

What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month:

ADULT only Lake Trip with our sweet friends, Rob and Leigh Anne! 

What Else Is New:

Nothing really! We are so BORING!! ;)

Bonus Question:
What was my favorite part of Summer?

NO SCHEDULE: which equates to lazy days, pool and lake days, etc!! 

Hope you guys are having a GREAT week!! 

xoxo, Heather



  1. I have heard so many amazing things about Lularoe leggings!! And So exciting about your adult only trip!!! I want to come!! Ha! :)

    1. They are amazing!!
      You are welcome to come! Just pack a swim suit!! :)

  2. This is Emma's last year of Elementary School, so I understand where you are coming from about Ian starting Middle School. Honestly, when I think about Emma going to Middle School I get a pit in my stomach. Ugh. I'll be praying for you!
    I am in need of a new book to read, so I think I will check out the one you are recommending!!
    Your Etsy shop is busy! But that is because you do amazing work =)
    And FGL, I also just heard about what happened at their concert and It disappoints me so much. They posted on their Facebook page that what happened was a misunderstanding and it was taken out of context...but i'm really not sure.
    You will have to let us know how the movie Bad Moms is! I've been wanting to see it! =) Have a great day, Heather =)

    1. Thank you for the prayers. I'm going to need them!!
      Kelly Elliott is a great author but lots of cuss words.
      It disappoints me too:( I'm with you. I'm just not sure either.
      Have a great day sweet friend.

  3. NOOOO! That is such a bummer that Florida Georgia Line was disrespectful to law enforcement. Also, I am right there with you as far as once school starts, fall is here. Seriously, if the kids and I can't be floating around a pool all day then fall is here even if it is 100 degrees outside! Hahaha!

    1. I am
      Bummed too! Hopefully, it was a misunderstanding:(
      Girl I hear ya! Floating in a pool or FALL!! 😁

  4. I started blogging in January, too. I realy thought after reading your blog for the last month or so that you were waaaay more experienced than me. Ha! I'm feel like I'm just trying to keep my head above water, but you seem so organized. I am really glad I found your blog, though. I totally relate to you! :)
    I love the after school snack wine glass! So cute!

    1. Awe. Thank you. I love your blog as well. You are great!!

  5. Oh man - the FL/GA line song is my favorite!! I didn't hear they weren't very respectful, no good guys!! I am excited for fall too....just not quite yet!! Give me another month and I will say bring it on!

    1. I know Leigh. It broke my heart. Hopefully it was a misunderstanding.
      Yes! I love summer. But this heat is killing me. 😝

  6. Ok, to be totally honest, I didn't realize you just started blogging in January! Nonetheless, I'm glad we've connected in that time. School started back here today..really, JULY 27?! I'm with you, I love the Bachelor "franchise" but I'm ready for this one to be done...the guys were just too much this season. I watched about 40 minutes of the Men Tell All last night and just couldn't watch anymore.

    1. I am so glad we connected too:)
      Oh my gosh... I can't believe yalls school start back today.
      It about killed me to watch it😳

  7. Stopping by from the linkup! XOXO
    It's funny how we're all reminiscing about our babies! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I was invited to a screening of Bad Moms through my blog but was unable to attend...BOO! I heard it was hilarious!

    1. Awe! Thanks for stopping by!!
      Middle school is killing me.
      I can't wait to see it!!!!

  8. Middle school!! Yikes not my personal best years. Good luck mama!! The good news is boys are less dramatic. So I am finally caught up on the bachelorette. It helps to save them and watch them all consecutively. But I have to agree soooo slow!! I could careless who she picks at this point!!
