What's Up Wednesday {June 29}

Happy Wednesday! I can't believe that it's the last Wednesday of the month. I swear it was just June 1st! Today I'm linking up to share what we've been up to lately! 

1. What we're eating this week....
On Monday we had pork tenderloin that I marinated for 24 hours {only because we changed plans Sunday and went to the baseball game}, I served it with corn on the cobb and green beans. Corn is fresh right now in Wilson and I seriously can't get enough of it! Last night I made cheesy chicken, broccoli and rice casserole. Be on the lookout for a recipe post coming soon! 

2. What I'm reminiscing about....
Graham turned 8 months old yesterday and I cannot believe it. I feel like he was just a tiny NICU baby and now he's sitting by himself and so chunky. We went to visit a friend who has a 4 week old little boy and seeing Graham next to James made me realize just how big he is getting! 

3. What I'm loving...
The slow summer days that we have been having. I'm also loving that I have gotten both my boys napping at the same time in the afternoon. This means I usually have at least 1.5-2 hours of quiet. I'd like to say that I'm doing laundry and cleaning, but more times than not I'm posted up on the sofa catching up on some DVR or taking a quick nap. I will spend a little time picking up or loading/unloading the dishwasher too.

 4. What we've been up to...
Lots of outside time and pool time! 

5. What I'm dreading...
Same thing as last month! Potty training...I don't necessarily want to do this but I'm going to attempt to at least try over the summer. I know they say you will know when they are ready so if it doesn't go over well then I won't hesitate to stop and revisit at a later date. I really wish there was some sort of toddler potty training boot camp you could send them off to and they would return fully potty trained. I bought a little potty that Jack has gone on a handful of times, I guess I really need to try and push it more than I do. #lazymom

6. What I'm working on....
Trying to get my upstairs organized. It had gotten out of control with clothes not being put away. I spent all of Graham's morning nap yesterday folding, putting away, and organizing our clothes. Tomorrow I plan to tackle the closet in our spare room upstairs. It has become a catch all and frankly you can't even find a thing that's in it! 

7. What I'm excited about...
We are headed to the beach this weekend with my In-laws for the Fourth of July! I can't wait to get my toes in some sand and watch Jack play. We had a great time when we went for Memorial Weekend and I know this will be just as fun.

8. What I'm watching...
Of course I watching anything on Bravo but my favorite right now is Southern Charm {anyone see that reunion Monday night?} I'm also so glad that RHOC has started back.

I'm watching the bachelorette too but honestly I can't get into it. These 2 hour episodes are too long for me. I don't have time to watch it all at once and I'd just prefer a one hour episode. They could cut out half the "fluff" that the include in the episode.

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...
A whole lot of Mickey and George...We have been watching Curious George Christmas Special {'s summer, I know!} non stop whenever in the car. I have gotten so that I am singing the songs in my's driving me insane! I often will find myself 10 minutes down the road with no kids in the car and realize that I'm still listening to the movie play.. If I don't have kids in the car I've got The Highway on Sirius radio on. Country radio all day every day.
10. What I'm wearing...
Well since legging weather has officially gone out the door I've moved on to my summer staple. Workout skorts and tanks. I'm also still sporting some workout leggings because I've been trying to go to barre a few days a week and end up wearing that outfit the whole day. If I'm actually going to get dressed my favorites are white jeans and a top or a t-shirt Lilly Dress.

11.What I'm doing this weekend...

See #7...The Beach!!

12. What I'm looking forward to next month...
We are heading to my most favorite place ever, Torch Lake, Michigan! My parents spend the summer up there and I've been going every summer since I was 7. Both of my sister and their family go at the same time too! We have always spent the Fourth up there but decided this year to wait and go towards the end of the month in hopes that it will be a little warmer and the water will be warm enough for the kids to swim.

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!

  1. It's amazing how a small baby makes our babies seem so big. You have so much fun going on and to look forward to. Can't wait to read about your beach weekend and trip to Michigan. :)

  2. I'm obsessed with Southern Charm! 😊 Graham is getting so big! And both boys are so cute...I so wish I had that ginger hair! ❤️ Enjoy your beach trip!!

  3. It sounds like an amazing time you have ahead. I love beach weekends!!! I can't wait for the recipe. We have been trying new recipes out and have some hits and misses. I still love Grey's Anatomy too. And the Bachelorette I watch, but I am not as focused as I usually am.

  4. So many cute pictures! XOXO Happy 8 months to Graham!
    I hope you have fun at the beach!
