What's Up Wednesday

Today I'm linking up with Shay for another What's Up Wednesday post.  To see last month's post, click here.


What we're eating this week...
I did a screen shot of this new dessert recipe on Monday because I'm always looking to try something new and this recipe is HEALTHY!  It's for making your own healthy strawberry ice cream sandwiches.  I plan on making it either tomorrow or Friday :)



What I'm reminiscing about...
Our trip to the beach Memorial Day weekend.  It was much needed!

What I'm loving...
Being out of school!  I was so ready for summer vacation only because I have a lot on my plate this summer.  Grad school classes started back today; I have a Bible study that I'm leading weekly starting tonight; I've got VBS, workshops, moving houses and classrooms and our one year anniversary all this summer.

What we've been up to...
If you read Tuesday's post, we just got back from the beach!

What I'm dreading...
Grad school this summer--I'm taking STATISTICS (I'm crying now).  Whyyy does a school librarian need to know statistics???  I'm also taking a children's/young adult lit class and I've got 9 novels to read, too...

What I'm working on...
I've been studying for Bible study tonight.  The book we're doing is called Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life by Donald Whitney.  I've only read chapter one but I love it so far.

What I'm excited about...
Moving into our house next month!!!!!  We went by it yesterday and here's a sneak peek of the front door that I'm so in love with:

What I'm watching/reading...
Besides reading the book for my Bible study, I'm reading Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.  It's interesting right now.  It's about a circus that is open only at night and everything is in black and white.  I'm still trying to figure out what's going on.

What I'm listening to...
  My dad is taking us to see the Alabama Shakes in August at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater and I have been listening to this song on repeat nonstop!  I can't wait!  (This concert is on a Thursday night.....prayers for the next day needed starting now ha)

What I'm wearing...
I got so many compliments on the clothes I wore at the beach this past weekend!  This romper is (believe it or not) from Forever 21!  It's so cute and has the cutest open back.  And it only cost $25....oh yeah!

 This dress came from Dillard's last July.  I could not find a going away dress for the wedding and I looked forever.  I knew that I didn't want to wear the traditional white dress, and I thought I wanted to wear one of the wedding colors--pastel blue or pastel pink, but I couldn't find anything that I liked in those colors.  So about a week before the wedding, my mom found this dress in Dillards and it was perfect!  

This dress has a super cute open back, too.


What I'm doing this weekend...
Nothing special!  This is my first weekend off of school and I'm so glad I don't have anything planned.  I do have a wedding to go to on Saturday night but that's it.

What I'm looking forward to next month...
MOVING HOUSES!!!

What else is new...
I'm really hoping to step up my workouts this summer now that I will have more time.  I've got a few more sessions with my personal trainer left and I went to a morning Groupfit class at my gym yesterday.  I'm hoping to wake up earlier this summer to run before the heat gets too hot.
