What's Up Wednesday (July 2017)

Well well it is that time again...I can't believe it...the end of July and the last Wednesday of the month which is time for my favorite linkup, "What's Up Wednesday!"
Linking up with Mel, Shay and Sheaffer HERE

Here is what we have been up to.....

What We're Eating This Week

Monday- Grilled Lamb Chops with Oregano and Garlic along with a Greek Salad

Tuesday- Roasted Chicken and Green Bean Salad
Wednesday- Chicken Burgers and Sweet Potato Fries

Thursday- Marinated Chicken Thighs and Salad
Friday- Take Out

Since I am eating clean and working out, I am also  starting my mornings with an Rx Bar with my coffee..I am obsessed with these little treasures!

What I'm Reminiscing About

Summers Past....That's All.....

What I'm Loving

All of the BEAUTIFUL Summer Weather.....

What We've Been Up To

We enjoyed fireworks with some of our besties...

We celebrated the 4th of July with family and friends!

 There has been some swimming....

We've Been Beachin' It Every Week!

and Mama got some more golf in....

Mama and Daddy enjoyed Kevin and Kiara's Wedding

and we participated in our 3rd Annual Hotdog Hoedown!

Miss Thing has been LOVING Theater Camp and even scored a part this year!

Mama has been Boot Camp'ing It!

and celebrating Jill's 40th!

and we had an awesome weekend with Besties at Laurel and Tom's Lakehouse

and Daddy has been gigging...we even enjoyed watching him at a gig last weekend!

and we celebrated Marshall's 26th Bday!

What I'm Dreading

Nothing right now really :)

What I'm Working On

Outside of being a wife, mom, stepmom and recruiter (which all keep me very busy)....
I am working on my overall health and I have to say, I am feeling stronger every day!

What I'm Excited About

Lots of Summer Fun still ahead.....
A Trip to NJ to see Dawn and her fam, Storyland and Santa's Village with the Grahams, more great workouts, My Cousin Tessie's Wedding, and Labor Day Weekend at the Beach with my Besties...

 What I'm Watching/Reading

Binge Watching The Secret Life Of The American Teenager (I am at the end of Season 4 out of 5 Seasons...kind of obsessed)

and I have started enjoying Younger again....

Odd Mom Out just returned and can you believe I haven't started watching it yet?  EEK!
I have to catch up- I need some laughs!!

I have to wait until September 17th this year to watch the 2nd and final season of Vice Principals- that was my favorite show last summer...I hate waiting!

and as far as reading is concerned, I am in a quandry.
I started reading Right Behind You by Lisa Gardner this month.  It was recommended by a few bloggers. has lost me...I keep waiting for it to get better and it is not so I am not done yet...maybe by the end of the month?

 and then the much awaited sequel to What We Keep by Kerry Lonsdale came out.  It is Everything We Left Behind and I couldn't help but start it.  I am enjoying it so it is now a race to see which book ends up being my July book.

 What I'm Listening To

Lots of jazz on the weekends...especially when we are taking a road trip to the beach or the lake or just friends' houses...nothing like it!
For pop tunes, I referred to some of them in yesterday's post.  I love Believer by Imagine Dragons (we dubbed that one our lake song of the year at Laurel and Tom's), Cold by Maroon 5, The Shape of You by Ed Sheeran and Chained to the Rythym by Katy Perry.

What I'm Wearing

It has been a whole lotta workout gear in these parts!

 and swimsuits and cover ups on the weekend!
 You can find this one HERE

Oh and I love this cold shoulder top for a night out- you can snag it at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale HERE 

What I'm Doing This Weekend

We are Road Tripping It!
We are going to see my best friend from high school, Dawn and her family!  Can't wait!
You might remember that they came up to our house over the winter and we are going to visit them this time.  We are super excited that they live on a lake and have a fun boat too- we know we are going to have plenty of laughs! 
This Is Us...Then and Now!

What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month

Storyland and Santa's Village With the Grahams and Labor Day Weekend with My Besties in one of my favorite places on Earth...Portsmouth!

What Else Is New?

Work is quiet...I know it happens every July but I can't stand it...I get antsy...I need business....I need action...ha ha  ha!!!

Bonus Question Of The Month:
What is my favorite part of summer?

Well this won't surprise you....All of the beach time! :)

That's a wrap!  Can't wait to read all about what you have been up to!
