What's Up Wednesday {8.31}

I am excited to do this link up today! I haven't done it in a few months and it's always one of my favorites! 

1. What we're eating this week....
Naan pizzas are so easy and versatile. We made them Sunday night and everyone got to put their own toppings on their own naan bread. I made oven baked tacos Monday night. Thanks to Sarah posting this yummy recipe I was reminded how much I love making these and had totally forgotten. I took her recipe and added black beans. Be sure to drain the rotel fully because mine had too much liquid and the bottom of the taco shells were soggy. They were still delish! 

2. What I'm reminiscing about....
I had Graham's composite pictures made on Sunday and it got me looking back at when I had Jacks done. He was so little and such a nugget, I miss those cheeks! 

3. What I'm loving...
I am loving the few mornings we have had that have been somewhat cool. The humidity has been down and I don't automatically break into a sweat upon walking outside. Of course by 10:00 the temps and humidity are high but for that split second I am reminded of what fall will be like!

 4. What we've been up to...
We haven't been up to a lot. Gearing up for school to start and finishing out the summer! I have been trying to organize and clean out room by room.

5. What I'm dreading...
Potty training... Does anyone ever not dread this? I tried "{for a hot minute} to train Jack and at the first accident I threw the towel in. I'm just not cut out for this. I'm praying he just wakes up one day and decides he is over diapers! Wishful thinking I'm sure!

6. What I'm working on....
Getting organized! I have started writing in my planner again and hoping that it helps to keep me organized and stay organized.

7. What I'm excited about...

The start of football!! We go to the opening NC State game Thursday night and I can't wait! I plan to fully enjoy the weekend of games.

This was Jack two years ago on the opening day for NC State. It just popped up in my time hop and I wanted to cry. How was he that little just 2 years ago, It seems like yesterday but also so long ago. 

8. What I'm watching...

Bachelor in Paradise...Yall, this show is a Train. Wreck. but I love it! The drama is hilarious and the way they edit makes me laugh every show. Also..what was Carly wearing in Monday nights rose ceremony? I really have no words!

All the Real Housewives (OC, NYC, NJ)

I also can't forget my daily obsession....thank you Lifetime for helping me be so unproductive during nap time.

9. What I'm listening to...
Welcome to My House has been on repeat in my car lately. I some how just discovered this song and I love it. I'm also still loving Tyler Farr's Better in Boots!

10. What I'm wearing...
If you follow me on Insta (@threeboysandagirlblog) you saw that I posted this dress that I wore to GNO on Friday! It's so comfy and can be dressed up or down. I'm also wearing a similar style that is a swing dress. If you don't find me in one of these you can find me in my standard workout gear. You can also check out what I will be wearing this fall in my recent post. 

11.What I'm doing this weekend...
Watching football and cooking out with friends! We were going to go to the beach for Labor Day weekend but decided that we would rather just stay home. I also plan to pull out ALL my fall decs and get my house in the spirit! There is something about a decorate house that makes everything seem cozier. I plan to do a full post on all my decor soon! 

12. What I'm looking forward to next month...
I'm looking forward to cooler temps and all the things fall. The county fair comes at the end of the month and I'm excited to take the boys. Jack will have so much fun this year.! I can't wait for Saturdays spent tailgating and watching games.

and that's what's up with me! I would love to hear what you've been up to. Have a great day, Happy hump day friends!

* Linking up with ShayShaeffer, and Mel 


  1. He actually will wake up and decide he is done with diapers one day. It just might not be on your timeline. Haha. The hardest part for me was waiting and not comparing to other kids, especially girls. They all do it on their own time, but I refuse to fight them. I never cleaned up a single accident with G, and have the same plan with H. He may be 3.5 or whatever, but I'm waiting for him to be ready--b/c I'm from the school of lazy parenting. ;)

  2. Ahh potty training...good luck!! Buy some chocolate to treat yourself!! :) Those baked tacos look delicious!

  3. Those tacos look amazing!! Potty training is tough momma, but you've got it. I know you can do it.

  4. You've inspired me to put those tacos on my list for next week! Aren't they the best? I'm so ready for cooler temps to get here, too! The heat and humidity is killing me in Alabama.

  5. The train wreck of Carly's outfit was horrible. I hated it. So ugly. I can't wait for Grey's to come back this season. Die hard fan here. Ya for football games. Love that picture you have of Jack. I can't wait to see Grahams!!!
