It is the last Wednesday of August. School is back in full swing, summer is over, fall air has started to hit early. Time for some What's Up Wednesday, I'm linking up today with Shay, Sheaffer, and Mel.
What We're Eating This Week:
Sunday- Dinner at my parents
Monday- Spaghetti with meat sauce and garlic bread
Tuesday- Was supposed to be tacos. Ella came home and didn't eat her lunch so I made something I knew she would eat, chicken nuggets and veggie stir fry. (i didn't have chicken nuggets)
Wednesday- Pork Chops with green beans and red potatoes
Saturday- Steak kebabs with peppers and onions
Sunday- Labor Day party at mother in-laws
What I'm Reminiscing About:
I can't believe Ella is almost 6, her birthday is in a little over a month. She is in Kindergarten all day. I remember the day she was born like yesterday. The day my mother called me at work to say Ella took her first steps, get got her first tooth 5 years ago today (wonderful TimeHop)... Every photo that shows up on my Time Hop, I get so excited and sad about and want to share. Now I have my days to just Austin and I for a little while. Making my evenings with Ella more special.
What I'm Loving:
I hate to say this but I am loving Ella being at school. I know it is going to be so good for her. We may currently be struggling with tears and attitude but it will get better with time. My days are a lot more laid back but at the same time more a schedule and structured. I have my morning routine and lots of down time. Then our after school and bedtime routine. Plus I don't hear "I'm bored what should I do" 500x a day.
What We've Been Up To:
August has been a busy month with enjoying the rest of summer and knock more things off our summer bucket list. The last week has been preparing for back to school and Ella started this past Monday.
What I'm Dreading:
At the same time I like everything being on a schedule. I am dreading all the running around of cheerleading, PTA, play dates, and girl scouts that all are starting now also.
What I'm Working On:
Getting organized, figuring our google calendar so everything is in one place, and starting a new virtual fitness group in a few weeks. I am still continuing on my daily health and fitness journey and doing what is right for my body. Going to focus on helping more people on their own health and fitness journey.
What I'm Excited About:
Fall, decorating and everything Pumpkin Spice.
Ohio State University Football season starts tomorrow.
What I'm Watching/Reading:
I also record and watch "I Love Kellie Pickler" She is one of my favorite country artists and American Idol contestants.
I have done a lot of reading this month. I'm kinda proud of myself. Check back tomorrow I talk about my the books I have been reading this month with Carpool Book Club.
What I'm Listening to:
Aubriella is obsessed with this movie. We watch it everyday and have dance parties to the song. We also go on Youtube and get the music also.
I am in the car more and walking with just Austin, I am back to listening to more podcasts. Here are a few of my favorites right now:
What I'm Wearing:
Since working at home I barely put real clothes on. My attire consists on yoga pants or shorts and workout tank with a sports bra. However a week ago my favorite sports bra broke so I have ventured into wearing a real bra again and some normal clothes. For the month of September I am going to join Stephanie over at Wife Mommy Me in Dresstember. For 10 days of the month we are supposed to wear a dress, maxi or skirt. Time to go through my closet and see what I own and what I can wear and document it all.
I am excited though to also break out my skinny jeans and cowgirl boots. Also my go to sweatshirts that I live in all winter long.
What I'm Doing This Weekend:
Cheerleading games don't start this weekend so we are sleeping in. Well that is the plan. We have no real plans on Saturday, Sunday we have a cookout for the Holiday at my in-laws, and on Monday Aubriella goes to her dad's, but we have no real big plans. It will be a somewhat hopefully relaxing weekend.
What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:
Everything Fall and Pumpkin and Pumpkin Spice. The cooler weather, football games, and
