What's Up Wednesday

Hello, Wednesday!  It's nice to see ya again!

I'm linking up with Sheaffer and Shay for What's Up Wednesday! 


WHAT WE'RE EATING

Well, we're about to eat all the delicious Fourth of July food!

We're hosting a large group of friends this weekend and we'll be cooking up all sorts of summer goodness, one dish in particular will be my Mom's/Aunt's Rigatoni Bacon and Tomato Pasta Salad!  I blogged about this ages ago and it still holds up!




WHAT I'M REMINISCING ABOUT 

My Dad.

My Dad is currently living with Vascular Dementia and oh how I miss what he used to be capable of doing.  My heart aches for my Mom, too.  I'll take any prayers that you may have and any advice if you've ever had a loved one endure this horrific disease.

Gosh I love him.





WHAT I'M LOVING

Slow summer days.

I'm loving not having to be multiple places in one day.  I'm loving Jane not being rushed out the door.  I'm loving our slow mornings when I'm able to drink my coffee snuggled up with my babies.  These mornings and days have been so nice.




WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO

Decluttering all the things!

I've really been going for it.  I posted a little glimpse into our crawl space and part of the "why" of this massive decluttering journey here.  I've since gone through board games, more toys, the car, our kitchen cabinets and my closet.  It seems endless, but I can feel my brain clearing itself of all the clutter and it feels absolutely magical.


WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT

We're about to host a bunch of friends for the weekend and while we're super nervous that all goes well, we're also super excited!

The girls and I did manage to work on some Fourth of July decor.  They did great and had so much fun making their own little Uncle Sam!

I shared their fun project on my IG stories - my handle over there is overatmaries. ;)


WHAT I'M WATCHING/READING

The Hobbit.

I'm currently reading The Hobbit to the kids (Henry and Eliza).  I'm hoping to finish it up by mid-July, but these summer nights have been slowing us down just a tad.  It's a great book and the kids are definitely interested!


WHAT I'M LISTENING TO

All the same podcasts as last month.

I've been listening to a lot of podcasts.

My current favorites:

Thrive

Blogging Unscripted

Clutterbug Podcast

Crush the Rush

Unruffled

Wannabe Minimalist


WHAT I'M WEARING

Amazon fashion for the win!

Jon and I recently went to a Dave Matthews concert down in Indiana and I wasn't sure what to wear since we'd be in almost 90 degree weather and I knew I wanted to be able to have room for a food baby ;) LOL!

I'm so used to wearing leggings and biker shorts, but it felt so nice to wear actual shorts for a change.  I tried on a bodysuit, but I found this shirt from Amazon and you guys, it was PERFECT!

SHIRT // SHORTS




WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEKEND

See above - PARTY TIME! ;)


WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH

I'm looking forward to weeks full of a clean and decluttered home without much of an agenda.  

We plan to go see my Dad for his birthday and then we may head to Michigan's Upper Peninsula for a fun little getaway.


FAVORITE AMAZON FINDS

I recently just ordered these items for myself for the weekend...

SARONG





Okay....and not to be outdone, I purchased this Betsy Ross dress for myself.  It's a child XL, but I'm hoping to squeeze into it on Saturday!  LOL!  If this kind of thing doesn't describe me perfectly...  *SHRUGS SHOULDERS* - I'm always up for all-things-over the top!  Hahaha!  Wish me luck and fingers crossed it kind of fits!




There you have it - my What's Up Wednesday!

Thank you forever and always for visiting my little corner of the internet!

Marie :)
