What's Up Wednesday! (July 2015)

Happy Wednesday!  I'm linking up with Shay from Mix and Match Family for her What's Up Wednesday! posts.


What we're eating this week...
I joined Weight Watchers again last week so I've been making lots of WW friendly meals.
Monday night:
This was a picture I sent to my sister.  This taco pie was so so good and will be made again!

What I'm reminiscing about...
Sunday was our one year anniversary!  If I could relive our wedding day again, I would do it all over again the exact way I did a year ago.  I loved everything about our wedding that I wouldn't change a thing!



What I'm loving...
Our new house!  Sunday also marked one month in the new house and I love it!  We live in such a great area in town.  I'm excited to see how our subdivision will grow.  With that being said, the lot next to us is empty so I'm curious to get to know the next people who decide to build in this neighborhood.

What we've been up to...
We really haven't been up to much this month.  Dustin has been working lots of overtime because they are short a few people at work, and he's been doing a few things around the house.  I finished up my summer term of grad school--and made my first B.....in statistics.  I'm just glad I survived that class.  I've also been trying to buy home decor items a little at a time to decorate our house with.  It's going to be a work in progress!  We've just been enjoying our new home and being home with each other!

What I'm dreading...
School?  I have mixed feelings about this.  I love the freedom of a summer schedule and being home with D when he's off during the week, but I love the structure of the school year.  I honestly can't wait to meet my kids though!

What I'm working on...
Losing the 10 pounds I gained since I got married.  Decorating the house.

What I'm excited about...
Celebrating holidays in the new house!  My sister and I went walking Monday night and I was already talking about Halloween and having trick-or-treaters this year.  She asked me if I was already listening to Christmas music (she knows me so well haha) and I told her I was waiting until September :)

What I'm watching/reading...
I'm reading Go Set a Watchman like the rest of America.  For some reason though, I just am having a hard time getting into it.  I think it might have something to do with an article I read before the book was released about Atticus being a different character than we grew to love in TKM.  I haven't gotten that far yet, but I will finish this book by Friday.

What I'm listening to...
Ben Rector!  He's coming to Birmingham in November and I WANT TO GO SO BAD!!  Dustin, I know you're reading this sooo... ;)

What I'm wearing...
I got this gorgeous dress on our anniversary!  It's even school appropriate....such a teacher move ha!

What I'm doing this weekend...
Lots of this.  Since this weekend is technically my last weekend before I start school, I'm going to relax!  And go to the mall!

What I'm looking forward to next month...
Alabama football starting back!  ROLL TIDE!

What else is new...
Not much around here!  I start back to grad school in about two weeks so I've got a nice little break right now.  I plan on reading a bunch of books between now and then!

Bonus question:
What will you miss most this summer?
I kind of answered this previously, but I'm really going to miss the freedom from having a schedule.  It's been nice waking up whenever I wanted and if I decided I wanted to go downtown to a store, then I would just hop in my car.  It'll take me a little bit to get adjusted to a structured schedule, but once I get adjusted, I'll thrive :)

Check back Friday for my Friday Favorites post!
