Welcome to my piece of the Internet. I'm joining in on the fun with Mix and Match Family, Pinterest Told Me To and The Larson Lingo for What's Up Wednesdays.
What We’re Eating This Week
I’ve cooked more this week than in the past few weeks because we haven’t been home for the past month! Just simple stuff because we have a lot of things going on – Michael has soccer practices 4 times a week and we’ve been dealing with all the stuff that goes on with buying/renovating a house.
What I’m Reminiscing About
The fall weather. Thanks to Nordstrom, I’ve got some of my fall wardrobe in my closet and I can’t wait to wear them. It’s been so hot here that I’m looking forward to the cooler days. And of course, pumpkin spiced latte in a red cup season!
What I’m Loving
I’m loving my new necklaces I got from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I love how delicate they are and they go with almost anything. Get the Gorjana bar necklace here, and the Sonya Renee necklace here.
What We’ve Been Up To
We’ve been up to lots, but the biggest thing we’ve been up to is a new house! We saw the house last Wednesday, our contractor come in to see how much it would be to remodel the next day, made an offer on Saturday and close on the house this coming Friday! Crazy fast.
We won’t move in until a couple of months from now because of the renovations. And we’ve decided not to put our current house on the market until we have moved into the new house. With the kids starting school, house renovations and going through IVF, we’ve decided that keeping the house in showing condition will be the last straw for my emotional sanity.
What I’m Dreading
Moving. Enough said….
What I’m Working On
I’m working on being more patient with my boys. I will be a better parent when they start back up at school. I love them, but the constant bickering and tattling is driving me bonkers.
What I’m Excited About
Living in our dream house (after all the remodeling headaches and the moving). This is the kitchen that we are using as our inspiration. I love everything about this kitchen.
What I’m Watching/Reading
Watching Reality TV, of course. M and I are loyal viewers of RHOC and The Bachelorette this season. He won't admit it, but he probably loves these shows more than me. We’ve also been watching Frontline on PBS together. They have some pretty interesting topics.
Right now, I’m reading The Kitchen House and once I’m done with that, I’ll move on to The Affair.
What I’m Listening To
My boys bicker…
What I’m Wearing
Right now, I’m either in my workout clothes or in shorts and a T-shirt. Let's face it, summer in Texas is not conducive to dressing up. I did get dressed to go out to a nice dinner with the hubs and to meet friends for drinks after at the Rustic. But I’m mostly in my gym gear. This is my favorite basic tank. The tennis skirt is out of stock, but here's a similar one.
What I’m Doing This Weekend
No plans yet, but we have people visiting from California so we will find something fun to do with the kiddos.
What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month
The boys going back to school! Mark will also be going to Pre-K full-time so that will be super exciting for him. He’s already picked out a backpack and we will be going school shopping together for the first time!
What Else is New?
There are lots of other happenings, but it would make this post way too long and boring.
