What's Up Wednesday - July Edition



Today is one of my favorite link ups & I'm sadly proud of myself that I remembered to get this post ready. Blogging has been on the back burner, but you'll see why as you read through this post :) 

1 - What We're Eating This Week... 

Nothing fancy. Our goal for grocery shopping was to have as little left in our fridge when we left Saturday as possible. So we've grilled and ate pasta salad with veggies most nights. We did have quesadillas last night though & those are always a hit with my girls! 



2 - What I'm Reminiscing About...

A couple of things... 
- I cannot believe Olivia is a year old already! Having her birthday party had me feeling all sorts of nostalgic for when she was just a teeny little thing. 


- Packing for Disney has me thinking about all of the trips I took with my parents & grandparents as a kid. One of my favorite trips though was with my Aunt Babs five years ago as an adult.


3 - What I'm Loving...

I've been on a shopping binge, but I have to confess, my heart belongs to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. To see my favorites, check out Friday's post

4 - What We've Been Up To...

So many things! 

We had an "All The Princesses Party" to celebrate Ella turning 4 & Livy turning 1! 



I spent a week coaching at cheer camp. We had theme days & the girls loved it! 


I went to Baltimore to get my tumbling certification. While I was there, we got to spend time at the Inner Harbor & listen to the top coaches in cheerleading speak. So much fun! 


We've been doing a lot of playing in the backyard! On Sunday, we basically spent all day out there & it was glorious. Our weekends are normally jam-packed, so having some downtime was special. 


We visited the lake with our friends & Livy loved it! She was a big fan of the boat ride we went on!


5 - What I'm Dreading...

Well, I hate saying anything negative about our vacation because I'm just so excited about it. But if I'm being honest, I'm dreading flying with both of my kids. Ella has only flown twice - which was to Orlando & back when she was 18 months old. On that flight home, she cried so hard that she puked all over me during the descent. So... I plan to feed Livy a bottle during take off & landing and I've been practicing gum chewing with Ella, even though she has no idea why. I'm also packing a change of clothes for all involved parties... just in case. 

6 - What I'm Working On...

Packing. Packing. More packing. I'm terrified I'll miss something. To top it all off, I'm doing it secretly, so everything is sorted into piles & randomly stashed throughout the house. I'm going to put it the majority of it together after the kids go to bed tomorrow then finalize everything Friday night when they're asleep again. Thankfully, Ella knows she isn't allowed in our basement, so I've been able to set up a command center down there for the time being. 

7 - What I'm Excited About...

DISNEY!! I cannot wait to spend a week with my favorite people at my favorite place. 

8 - What I'm Reading... 

I've been reading the Gannett Island Series by Marie Fore & loving it. I'm not going to lie - they're definitely romance novels - but I'm hooked on all of the characters & they're little island life! 

9 - What I'm Listening To... 

I recently activated my Apple Music trial & am obsessed with it! You can basically pull up any song in the world & they'll have it. They have a ton of pre-made playlists too that I love to pull up when I'm running or walking the dog. So many throwbacks! 

10 - What I'm Wearing... 

My wardrobe is pretty sporadic during the summer. Some days it's a sundress & sandals. Other days it's running shorts & a tank with flip flops. It just depends on our task. I've literally taken zero outfit pics this summer #badblogger But I do plan to share what I wear to Disney all of next week! 

11 - What I'm Doing This Weekend...

I'm not sure if I've mentioned this, but we're headed to Walt Disney World to surprise Ella for her birthday! I think that's my favorite part of the whole trip. She's going to be so excited! 

12 - What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month...

Cheer season starts on August 15th & for me, that signals that it's time to get back into our school year groove. I've got a ton of changes coming this year, but I'm feeling more & more ready to tackle them after a few weeks off. Once we're home from vacation, I plan to spend a lot of time in my new classroom so I'm ready to give my new kiddos an amazing start to the year!
