What’s Up Wednesday

You guys, it is the last day of August. I can’t believe it! This summer seriously went by in the blink of an eye. At the risk of sounding terrible, I am not too terribly sad to see this summer go. I love having a precious little babe, but it really makes getting out and doing much during the summer months (or any months) a challenge. And, I was homeless for the majority of the summer 😉 Bring on fall and all of the warm fuzzy things that come with it! Linking up for What’s Up Wednesday today, as well as with the regulars Jenn and Jessi, to see what all of you ladies have had going on during this last month of summer!

1. What we’re eating this week
We did something we almost never do during the week and went out for dinner on Monday for my nephew’s birthday! And our whole night felt out of sorts afterwards 😉 Otherwise, a night of leftovers, shredded chicken enchiladas, and pizza, which is ALWAYS on the menu at least once a week. We would eat pizza every single night if we could!

2. What I’m reminiscing about
 After accidentally killing my iPhone on Sunday (still not working) I went back to my old phone, and so all of my old messages and such were saved. I saw some pictures of Jackson from about a year ago when I got the phone, so I have been having some fun all week sorting through old pictures and messages while cursing time for being such a thief.

 3. What I’m loving

The cooler weather! Last weekend was pure bliss, with high temperatures around 70 degrees. This week has warmed up again, but now the highs are back to being just below 80. But what I am really loving is the mornings, it is my favorite when it is chilly enough in the morning to need a jacket, but warm enough to enjoy playing outside during the day!

4. What I’m dreading
We decided to start Lincoln in daycare this month, and while I am not dreading cutting my pickup/dropoff process in half, or having my boys be together every day, I am dreading the fact that there will inevitably be more sickness in my house. So many germs, but worth it to see our boys get some social interaction!

5. What I’m working on
Oh, just trying to furnish an entire house from scratch. Can someone just send me all of the things, or all of the money? Next on my list is dressers for the boys rooms, an end table for the living room, and nightstands for our bedroom. You don’t realize how badly you need an end table until you have nowhere to set your drink!

6. What I’m excited about
 Fall weather! Pumpkin things! Football on Sundays! #sobasic I am also really looking forward to seeing Lincoln continue to grow, he is at that age where he is changing so much every single day, and I know by the end of next month he is going to be doing so many new things. Keeping it real, I think my baby hates being a baby. He is just not content, and gets so frustrated at not being able to do things. That being said, I think he is probably going to do things earlier than his brother did, because he is so determined! I am eager to see if becoming a bit more physically independent will improve his frustrations at all!

7. What I’m watching/reading
Reading does not exist in my world currently. Unless it’s blogs, which I try to read when I can find a few minutes. I am watching lots of Wallykazam and the Baby Channel 😉 Mike and I watched ‘It Follows’ last weekend, and it was okay. It was a scary movie, but not so scary that I couldn’t sleep for days or anything, and kind of weak plot development. Apparently it won all kinds of awards though? I also have been on an HGTV kick, so lots of Fixer Upper, Flip or Flop, and Property Brothers!

8. What I’m listening to
Again, since I am back on my old phone, I also have my old music and playlists. I have been loving hearing things pop up on shuffle like Leeann Rimes, the Backstreet Boys, and even some Christmas music (shh! Don’t tell!)

9. What I’m wearing
I seriously have been wearing one of these tops tucked into one of these skirts nearly every day this week. I just ordered these pants from Old Navy, as well as these and these, and have my fingers crossed they work out so I can start mixing up my work wardrobe a bit more.

10. What I’m doing this weekend
Still up in the air! We have a few options on the table to enjoy the Labor Day weekend, but nothing solid yet!

11. What I’m looking forward to next month

Hmm, well September is my birthday, Mike’s birthday, and we have a wedding the weekend in between. So we will hopefully be enjoying a few nights and meals kids free, and cake too! So, in the world that I currently live in, I am definitely looking forward to the month of food and cake.

12. What else is new
We finally got our modem for internet this week! Of course that then required hours of work for Mike to hook it up. So, I should *finally* have actual internet at home this week and am thrilled! What was life before we had Netflix?
Bonus** What is your favorite summer to fall transitional piece in your closet?
I love love LOVE my jean jacket. Especially when working in the summer, I love to throw this on for more casual days over a dress in lieu of a cardigan. Once fall hits, you will find me living in my jean jacket. I purchased mine five years ago or so at American Eagle, but this is an adorable option! For a fun twist, I am loving this mixed fabric option, too!

    My week gets totally thrown off when going out on a weeknight too, isn't it funny how that works? But yay for yummy leftovers 😀

    I definitely can't wait for fall and I love watching Flip or Flop and all the HGTV shows really! Also, I kind of like going out on random nights for dinner. It breaks up the monotony sometimes, which is nice. 🙂

    I'm always off when I go out on a weeknight, I'm always like but it is a school night haha. I'm so excited for cooler weather. Oh man I have wasted so many Saturday's binge watching Flip or Flop. Such a great show.
