It’s What’s Up Wednesday!!!!
And might I add, how is it the end of August? It feels like I just wrote July’s What’s Up Wednesday.
Let’s get to it! I love these fun link-ups!
What we’re eating this week:
This week one of the meals we are eating is one of favorite easy meals lately. Each ingrident comes from Costco and is from our freezer! And I have to say, that makes me very happy lol!
Each month when I go to Costco I pick up a box of Orange Chicken, a box of Egg Rolls, and a bag of Broccoli.
I make this super simple meal by putting the chicken and egg rolls both in the oven and boiling the broccoli. It’s delicious and simple and I bet it would be really really good in an air fryer! I need to get one of those!
What I’m Reminiscing about:
This past weekend John and I went kayaking on the Weeki Wachee and it was so fun! The small 6 mile trip down the river went by pretty fast because the current was flowing at a pretty good speed so we made it down the river in about 2 hours with little paddling.
Gosh it was just so beautiful though! Take a look!
What I’m loving:
I’m loving the two items I got at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
These earrings are just so cute and these slippers are super comfy but not as comfy as my Uggs.
What we’ve been up to:
Any activity that is outside related and you don’t have to wear a mask you can find us there! A couple of weekends ago we went to Bok Tower with family which was amazing!
And like I said before, we went Kayaking last weekend. Another outdoor, no mask activity!
Caroline and I have also been trying to get to the pool anytime it’s not raining. I know summer weather won’t be around forever so I’m hoping to get in more pool days than not.
What I’m dreading:
Hmmm….I need to take Caroline back for a make up day for swim lessons and I’m totally dreading that. She ended on a high note but I just know she will not be happy to go back even for just one 10 minute lesson.
What I’m working on:
Have you seen? I’m redoing my whole site!!!! I’m sooo excited!!! I’m really working so hard. It’s been so fun but gosh it’s lots of work.
What I’m excited about:
I’m super excited about Fall! I love Fall and everything about it. I totally dream/pretend we live in a place where the leaves turn colors and acutally fall. 😂But seriously I’m so excited for the small change in season and the fall decorations and all things PUMPKIN!!!🎃
What I’m Reading/Watching:
I’m pretty excited about the books I read this past month!!! I will be doing a book review on Monday! YAY!
We just started watching Schitt’s Creek and so far it’s pretty funny!
And we recently watched Murder on the Orient Express….gosh that is such a good movie and I totally wish I would have read the book first.
We also watched the Michael Jordan docuseries on Netflix The Last Dance, and wow if you want to up your game in any area of your life you need to check this out. I knew Michael Jordan was a phenomenal athlete but his drive and determination is unparallel and so inspiring. You need to check it out!
What I’m listening to:
If you have a little one you need to check her out, your kiddo will LOVE these songs. We have so much fun running around singing these songs! So stinking cute, it reminds me of the year I taught Pre-School.
What I’m Wearing:
Lots of bathing suits, workout clothes, and comfy pajamas!
What I’m doing this weekend:
We are taking it easy this weekend. Pool, Mass, Saturday Date Night at home, and fun together–just our normal pandemic weekend.
What I’m looking forward to next month:
I’m super excited to try and head back out to our zoo and aquarium and maybe even Disney World….not sure if we should venture out there but gosh we miss it so much and it looks pretty empty anytime I watch a YouTube video of the park… so we may just take a chance. I don’t know, what do you think? What would you do? We live only an hour away and Caroline and I could go during the week which I think would be even less crowded.
What else is new:
Caroline has a cute little recital today for the end of her summer dance class. Then she will be starting ballet and tumbling in September which she is super excited about. And I’m very excited to continue to share some of the great projects I’m working on here at Simply Holley Marie! YAY!
I hope you have the best Wednesday! And don’t forget to link up for What’s Up Wednesday and Wednesday Link-Up!
