What's Up Wednesday

Hey friends! It's been a while since I've participated in this link up! It's always a fun one so I'm back at it this month!

1. What we're eating this week: 
Monday- Memorial Day cookout...burgers and hot dogs
Tuesday- My dad's 70th birthday party 
Wednesday -take out
Thursday - Chicken broccoli rice casserole

2. What I'm reminiscing about:
The boys last day of school was last week and I'm thinking about how little Jack was just 9 months ago! His cheeks were so chubby and he looked so baby, now he's so tall and thinned out 

3. What I'm loving: The pool finally being open and Jack learning to swim! He is doing so good, and can swim without holding on to me, this is huge! 

4. What we've been up to: We've been in Charlotte since last Friday visiting my parents and celebrating my dad turning 70! 

5. What I'm dreading: the heat!! It's coming and will come quickly...I hate how hot and humid NC gets. By July it will be too hot to even go outside and the pool will feel like bath water. 

6. What I'm working on: In blog news..I'm working on growing my social media following. I want to gain genuine followers and not just follow for follow so it's proving to take awhile but ultimately that I'd rather have less followers who like my feed and I interact with than thousands that I could care less about. 

7. What I'm excited about: Our trip to Michigan! We just booked our tickets and head up there in July! (I am going to be looking for some guest posters, if you're interested leave me a message!!) 

8. What I'm watching: 
A lot of Trolls and Moana. And when I'm not watching that I'm watching Southern Charm and Southern Charm Savannah {still undecided on how I feel about this one} and PLL..I can't believe the final season is almost over, there are so many questions I still have! 

9. What I'm listening to: 
Moana soundtrack! It's really so good so I don't mind! 

10. What I'm wearing: These old navy rockstar Jeans and off the shoulder top. They are both so comfy and until it gets too hot I will be wearing these on repeat when not in my daily workout gear! Also still loving the ON swing dresses

11. What I'm doing this weekend:  Spending the weekend at the pool! 

12. What I'm looking forward to next month: The boys will start camp which is always a favorite of Jacks, and I know Graham will love it just as much! Followed but lots of pool days and play dates with friends! 

Bonus Question..What is your favorite trip 

I'd say my favorite summer trip is always our trip to Michigan! You can see my recap from last summer here

Linking up with Mix and Match Mama


  1. Girl, yes to the heat! Ugh, I'm dreading any days that are above about 95. It's totally the humidity; not even the heat that's the worst! Love those pictures of Jack's first and last days of school. Why do they grow so quickly?! Can't wait to hear all about your trip!

  2. Jack really does look so much bigger from the beginning of the year! I can't complain too much about the heat because we don't get nearly as much here (heck I'm still wearing a jacket today..) BUT I hate hate HATE humidity-I will take dry heat over humidity any day!

  3. Loved looking back at you recap of last year's vacation! We are moving to Michigan in July - South Haven, which I'm beginning to understand isn't too far from Grand Rapids in Michigan terms (lol!). Torch Lake has now been added as one of my must-sees!!!

  4. Michigan is my favorite, too!!! And I agree - better to have lower numbers with good interaction than a huge amount that is all just a game! Your dad's cake was seriously so awesome - I had no idea at first it was a real cake!

  5. Chicken broccoli and rice casserole--that sounds delicious!

  6. The Moana soundtrack IS really good. We loved the movie!!

  7. We had chicken broccoli rice casserole last night, yum! I was loving all your pool pictures and girl I totally agree about the heat. Yuck! Seriously not ready to sweat right when I walk outside

  8. Jack looks less baby in the end of year photo! Why does time steal our babes?

  9. Jack is growing up so fast in those pictures. It's so exciting and bittersweet. We are huge fans of the Moana soundtrack. It's on repeat. Ha ha!

  10. Oh goodness he has grown up SO much. We are loving the pool too. I was very happy to discover the girls had zero swim regression over the winter. That is always a good thing.

  11. Oh the heat in the south is awful. I totally get why you wouldn't be excited. I hope we get answers with PLL too! I can't believe how fast our kids grow. Jack looks so big swimming and eating his Popsicle.

  12. Oh my gosh, yes, Moana, hahaha! We just took our first trip to St. Louis, but also want to do Michigan because it's within driving distance. My husband and I have done St. Josephs to a little B & B but would love to find an area great to vacation with kids for a long weekend too!

  13. I am hoping Simon learns to swim this summer! I am watching PLL too!
