What's Up Wednesday

What’s Up Wednesday {June 2017}

Happy Wednesday. Today is one of my favorite monthly link-ups and recaps of the month. Today I am linking with Mel, Shay, and Sheaffer  for What’s Up Wednesday!


What we’re eating this week…

It is clean out the fridge week at our house! We have stuff to make breakfast, grill some chicken one night with some garden squash as a side, grilled burgers, grilled hot dogs and then BBQ’ed ribs on Friday. Saturday we are also having a BBQ. It’s a week of laid back meals.

What I’m reminiscing about…

I am reminiscing about fun family vacations in the summer!

What we’ve been up to…

This month was so much fun. We have had lots of fun outside.


Going to the matinee series at the movie theater.

Lots of running!


We went to a Mariners Game.


What I’m dreading…

Nothing, it is summer break and the living is easy.

What I’m working on…

Keeping my flowers alive. It was in the 60’s and 70’s for so long and then turned 100+ quickly. It dried up some of my flowers and now I am just trying to baby them back to life.

What I’m excited about…

Big Brother!

What I’m wearing…

Nothing too fancy, pretty much my summer momiform. 🙂

What I’m doing this weekend…

Spending some time kicking off the 4th of July in the mountains.


What I’m looking forward to next month…

We have a fun trip planned, the 4th of July, lots of time at the beach, lots of time to relax at home, and starting to read about a new program I want to implement into my classroom next year.


What else is new…

My recipe for Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad. It is so yummy, easy, and would be perfect for a BBQ.


*BONUS QUESTION* Favorite 4th of July tradition…

We go to our friend’s house on the actual 4th of July and have a BBQ and watch the fireworks.

I hope you have a great day, thanks for stopping by. What are your big plans and traditions for the 4th of July? I would love to hear.

  1. i had thought about watching Queen of The South but I have not yet, it looks so good. Several episodes were filmed in Dallas! We love Hawaiian Tropic too! I hope you guys have a wonderful 4th of July!!!

  2. You are so cute! I want a pair of those Fourth of July glasses, LOL! I love your workout pants with a little design on the bottom and yes to barbecue and fireworks! I literally just bought that sunscreen yesterday to take on our vacation next week, it was definitely the smell that got me! Love it. I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday beautiful lady!

    1. Well, if you happen to swing into Walmart soon you can get the glasses and the workout pants! Hahaha! 🙂 I love the sunscreen. Doesn’t it smell so good and I like the coverage, it goes on really lite. Happy Wednesday!

  3. Love so much of this post, but I especially love those outfits & those vacay pictures! We are super excited that Big Brother is back too! It just feels like Summer when BB is on tv! Happy Wednesday, friend!

  4. Can I just say I CANNOT wait for Big Brother to start tonight!! We’re hoping to stay a few nights behind so we’ll have some shows stored up to watch at nights after our girls go to bed. I don’t know if I’ll be able to resist though!

  5. Your momiform is exactly the same as mine – t-shirts and shorts all day every day! Looks like you’re having a great summer!

  6. Thanks for the book recommendations! I’m ready for a new read. Have a great 4th! Your Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad looks perfect for our 4th of July BBQ. 🙂

  7. I love summer minus the occasional bickering. Yay for the mountains AND the beach. Can’t wait to hear about it. I love love love love love the 4th of July :). xoxo ERIN

    1. The 4th is always so much fun! I love how laid back it is, but how special it is all at the same time. I would say it was my third favorite holiday, right behind Thanksgiving, and I am with you, Jesus wins with Christmas!

  8. Oh my gosh, that buffalo chicken pasta salad sounds amazing! I think I have almost everything to make it and now am debating changing what I planned for dinner. Hahah!!

  9. That’s our favorite sunscreen too! Although I’ve been making the kids wait to swim until after dinner lately so I don’t have to put any sunscreen on them! I need to start Wonder Years with my kids- it was one of my absolute favorites when I was little. Have a great rest of your week!

    1. I love the Wonder Years too. It was one of my absolute favorites as a kid as well. I still love it just as much today, if not more…I kind of get some new things now!

  10. 100+?!?! WOW! We have yet to have any days like that. It got into the 90’s a few days last week but really cooled back down. Which is kind of a bummer really. Hot weather makes for more fun while swimming.

    1. I love when it gets hot too! Our weather seems to bounce all around but now it looks like sunny (80’s and 90’s for the next week). That 100+ day dried out all my flowers and I hope they come back!
