It’s Wednesday already and the end of the month of MAY!!???!! What happened?! I’m so excited for summer fun but man I feel like we missed out on some pretty fun Spring things. I guess we’ll have to catch them next year…
Today I’m linking up for What’s Up Wednesday and Welcome Wednesday! Come join us!
1. What we’re eating this week:
What we’re eating this week…an assortment of very random things. For some reason I just haven’t been on my game with a good meal plan. I think it’s because I’m trying to go to the store very minimal so we’ve been eating what we have.
Last night we ate fish tacos and last week we ate breakfast for dinner one night and lunch for dinner one night. Not bad, but not normal for us.
2. What I’m Reminiscing about:
The days before swim lessons. AHH! These lessons are killing me. I need to change my attitude in my head though because I’m sure Caroline can feel it.
If you don’t know, Caroline is taking swim lessons and they’re the survival skill type and well they’re really hard and she pretty much can’t stand them. She does really well when she is there but gosh they are hard to watch. She cries the whole time and I cry on the inside. If you pray please say a little prayer for her and me that she can begin to have fun and not have so much anxiety. 💗
3. WHAT I’M LOVING:
I’m pretty much obsessed with these dresses from Walmart! I wish so badly they were able to be ordered online because I actually had to go to our worst Walmart around me and ugh I just hate going in there but the dresses were totally worth it.
I’m also loving this new lip color! It’s called Treat Yourself!
4. WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Well, we’ve been getting out more and more and I’ve been loving that! Last weekend we went to my in-laws and it was such a nice day! I love being with family and have missed it so much! We’re hoping it will be easy, fun, and safe to go to places like the zoo and Disney soon! Fingers crossed!
5. WHAT I’M DREADING:
Trying to work on Caroline not crying or being anxious before swim lessons. I need to put on my teaching hat and do what I would do as a teacher and not her mama.
Sooo hard but I know it will work. Gosh this mom stuff is hard isn’t it?
6. WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Oh my gosh I’m so excited!!!! I’m changing my blog name to Simply Holley Marie and it’s taking lots of work that’s why I haven’t been as consistent with posting or emails.
I’m very excited about it! I think it will help to truly encompass my blog as a lifestyle blog! Hoping to change it by next week!
7. WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Beach days, pool days, and Caroline learning to swim independently!
8. WHAT I’M Reading/watching:
John and I are still watching for the second time Parks and Rec and it’s so much fun! We have forgotten a lot of things so it’s like watching the series as if it was brand new!
I’m currently reading Your Blue Flame by Jennifer Fulwiler and hoping to finish it today actually. It’s sooo good and inspiring. I think you would totally love it!
And I’m also reading One in a Million. Sooo good and fun! Hoping to finsih that this week too!
I will be doing a fun book review next week! I’m so excited to share everything I read the month of May with you!
9. What I’m listening to:
If I’m not listening to a book on Audible I’m listening to either French Cooking music on Pandora radio (currently playing), Backstreet Boys, or Daniel Tiger 😂! Life of a toddler mom! And I wouldn’t trade it for the world!
10. WHAT I’M WEARING:
My Walmart dresses on repeat! YAY! Seriously so comfy! Especially in the heat!
11. WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Gosh you know what? I don’t know yet. Maybe we will go to the beach. I would LOVE that! But I don’t know if it will be rainy out…we will see!
12. WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
It’s my birthday which is always fun and I will be looking forward to sunny swim days at our community pool!
13. WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Gosh not a lot has changed except we have Caroline’s swim lessons everyday that are truly difficult.

Swimming lessons when my kids were little were so hard. My daughter hated them and now she is basically a mermaid. Here’s hoping Caroline will get there too.
Thank you Natasha! I hope she will be too. That is definitely my goal in sending her but gosh they are just so hard!
Jaclyn Musselman says
Aww good luck with swim lessons. She will get there. I struggled with my middle child and now he is on swim team:)
Oh my gosh, that is great! I love that he is on the swim team now! That makes me so happy to hear! I need all the positive outcome stories right now!
A blog name change!! How awesome for you! I can only imagine the amount of time that’s taking you. I can’t wait to see it though. Love your dresses and thinking about you and Caroline often when it comes to swimming lessons. You’ve got this!
Thanks so much, Tiffany!! I think of you guys often and am reminded of all my girlfriends who have done it with their kiddos. So hard but it will be worth it. I’m excited for the change but nervous too!
Brittany Worrell Boyce says
So excited to see your blog updates! I️’ve been wanting to do the same while we’ve been quarantined, but I️ also want to do all the things so I️’m trying to take it one thing at a time! haha
ME too! It’s so hard to focus on just one thing at a time especially when little ones are running around! I’m excited to change my domain name. Nervous but I think it’s the right direction to go!
Keri Snyder says
I am loving that dress!
It’s the BEST!! So comfy and perfect for summer!
I changed my blog name in November and I am STILL dealing with the work from that. Good luck with the changes!!
Thanks Joanne! I know it’s not going to be easy but I think it will be worth it! I hope at least! 🙂 I know there are so many changes I can’t even imagine yet lol!
