Hi friends!

 It’s What’s Up Wednesday time again where I link up with Sheaffer, Mel & Shay and a whole bunch of other fellow blogger to answer a series of questions!

Here we go…

1. What we’re eating this week…

It is finally hot and humid here in Missouri and the last thing you want to do is eat something heavy! So this week I’m starting to barbecue more (so the house doesn’t get so hot) and incorporate more grilled and sauted veggies. I think my favorite summer vegetable is zucchini!


Here’s a recipe I did awhile back that I absolutely love!

Momma is needing some chocolate and these look ah-mazing!!!

Here’s the recipe.

2. What I’m reminiscing about…

This was an easy one, I’m reminiscing about my niece and nephew that were just out here for a visit!

3. What I’m Loving…

It’s flip flop weather (finally) and my feet can’t be in flip flops all day with out my feet hurting at the end of the night. Well finally I found the best flip flops that do not bother my feet at all!

The Nike Comfort Flip Flop, I can wear ALL day and by the end of the night, my feet aren’t bothering me like they do with flat sandals. Love, Love…Love! Highly recommend 🙂

4. What we’ve been up to…

Besides visiting with family that just left a week & a half ago, we’ve been up to a lot of water play outside and playing Spot It!

We’ve also started our summer review with reading a little bit everyday and some review workbooks that I will talked about here!

5. What I’m dreading…

Honestly…there is nothing specific I’m dreading, maybe summer going by too fast!?!

6. What I’m Working on…

Does laundry count…!?!!

The never ending laundry…I really don’t mind the sorting, washing or folding…it’s the putting away that I never seem to do, haha!

7. What I’m excited about…

I’m excited about spending time with the kids and creating some fun memories this summer!

8. What I’m watching/reading…

Real Housewives of Orange County, duh…the new season just started two weeks ago!

and I’m reading Wild & Free, recommended by bloggers I follow!

9. What I’m Listening to…

I haven’t been listening to too much since I’m not driving the kids back and forth to school.

10. What I’m wearing…

When I’m not wearing workout clothes, haha, I’ve been loving my new button front tank tops from Target!

I purchased one in this olive green color and black.

11. What I’m doing this week…

Last week I took the kids to see Finding Dory…it was so cute!

Thursdays I usually do a “field trip”/ fun activity sort of thing and I’m thinking maybe going to one of the parks and having a picnic!?!?

and of course household duties… 🙁

12. What I’m looking forward to next month…

I’m looking forward to taking a little family vacation up to St. Louis and celebrating Jer, Madison’s birthdays and going to my sister’s wedding!

13. What else is new…

Jer and I finally decided we were going to put up another pool this year for the kids to swim, play and have fun! Summer here is so humid that you gotta cool off!

I ordered it from Amazon (since I’m a prime member duh…), it was delivered a few days later and Bryce and I set up majority of the pool on our own, super easy!

14. What is your Favorite July 4th tradition and/or recipe…

Before we moved to Missouri my in-laws would always be camping over the July 4th and we would go visit them and watch the fireworks.  But not that we are here in Missouri and fireworks are legal, we had the. best. time. last year!!!

We laughed so hard that our cheeks hurt that day…

The kids loved doing the little sparklers…

By far my favorite recipe on July 4th is non other than smores, the best combination known to man!!!

    I COMPLETELY agree about the Nike Flip Flops- I have worn mine to death over the last couple of years- started with the black ones and also bought the white ones- they never hurt- even when we were walking for hours and miles at Disney! 🙂 Holly (http://holly-pinklady.blogspot.com)
