What's Up Wednesday

Hey, hey, hey - It's Wednesday!

Today I'm linking up with AndreaShaySheaffer and Mel for What's Up Wednesday.







Let's see what we've been up to over here...

{What I'm Reminiscing About}

The kids.  It's mostly always the kids.  I've been reminiscing a lot of their other "first days of school."

They've grown so much!



{What I'm Loving}

Having a little free time while the kids are at school.  I get lonely, sure, but I've gotta say, it's nice to sloooooowly grocery shop, run errands and clean.  The latter is a work in progress.  ;)


{What We've Been Up To}

We're in school mode (check out my back-to-school recap here).

I've been trying really hard to leave early in the mornings so that Henry has ample time to play on the playground and I've been trying to get in the pick up line nice and early, too.

So far, so good.  Yes!



{What I'm Dreading}

Laundry.  Always laundry. 😩

{What I'm Working On}

I'm trying to blog as much as I can.  To hit publish as many times in a week as possible.  I need to get back to reading my blog friends' blogs and actually commenting on those, too.

Also, once the laundry gets done (if that ever happens) I have a BUNCH of organizing type projects I'd love to get to work on!


{What I'm Excited About}

Fall.

Fall, fall, fall, fall, fall!


Pumpkins, leaves, PSLs, cooler weather, comfort foods...everything, everything fall!

You guys...this meme is soooo me...

{What I'm Reading/Watching}

I've been reading, Girl, Wash Your Face, in the evenings and/or in the school pick up line and I love it!  It's providing me with the little kick in the rear end that I've been needing!



I haven't really been watching a lot of tv since the kids started school, but I try to never miss an episode of The Housewives of Orange County!

I've just been too pooped by the end of the day to even keep my eyes open long enough to watch much of anything.  No worries though, a little Orange County drama can help keep my little-reality-tv-heart happy for quite some time.

{What I'm Listening To}

Podcasts, some Hamilton, sweet silence...  ;)


{What I'm Wearing}

Right now I'm wearing a dress!  WooHoo!  But I'm mostly back to yoga pants...womp, womp.  I'm soooooo looking forward to busting out some leggings, boots and long, cozy oversized shirts!


{What I'm Doing This Weekend}

We originally had plans to co-host a little gathering with our friends here in town, but my neighbor and I decided it best to cancel the entire thing since it sounds like everyone has a crazy busy upcoming weekend.  It's okay though, I plan to work on my blog, read, swim, do some boating, work on a few projects and just relax and take in the rest of what's left of our Michigan summer.  :)


{What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month}

Decorating for fall, Homecoming, our local Apple Festival and cooler temps.


{What Else is New}

There are a few new things happening, but I'm going to have to leave you in suspense!  ;)
