What's Up Wednesday--August 2017

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

When I start these posts, I normally talk about how I can't believe it's already the end of the month and how fast that month has flown.  But today is different.  I'm thoroughly enjoying writing today's post.

Why, you ask?

Because that means September is coming and to me, September is officially the start of fall!!

What we're eating this week...
Lots of sheet pan dinners.  I've got a really fun one to share soon with y'all.
And I made my diabetic friendly peanut butter pie for my small group tonight.

What I'm reminiscing about...
I can't think of anything that I'm reminiscing about!

What I'm loving...
The cooler temperatures, seeing footage of people helping one another in Houston, getting my nails done

What we've been up to...
I started back to school this month so my life has basically revolved around school.  I've got 2 preps this year so that's taking more time because last year I pretty much only had 1 prep.

I also shared Dustin's tailgate birthday bash party from July this month!

What I'm dreading...

What I'm working on...
New things for the blog!  I shot 3 looks Saturday with my sister, and I've really loved playing around with fashion posts for the blog.  

I also am looking into buying my own domain and self-hosting (am I saying that right?! haha).  If you have Bluehost, please let me know how it was transferring it over because I am not tech savvy at all!

What I'm excited about...
My 3 day weekend this weekend!!!  Beyond ready for a break

What I'm watching/reading...
If I'm watching tv, it's lots of Hallmark Channel or my DVR.  I've also started rewatching Frasier after catching an episode on Hallmark.  I watched it with my dad when I was little, and now it's so much funnier because I actually get the humor!

I'm still reading Knowing God and that's it other than what I do for my quiet time.  Sometimes I go through reading slumps and I'm going through now.

What I'm listening to...
Taylor Swift's new song....cannot get enough of her new video ha!
(Mostly because it's filled with so much symbolism and my English major self)

What I'm wearing...


 **Email me if you want a link to my Matilda Jane party September 7


 shirt | jeans



What I'm doing this weekend...
Two words: College Football!

What I'm looking forward to next month...
Fall everything!

What else is new...
I know this sounds so boring but not much!  August was all about surviving the beginning of school, so September will be much better now that we're all in a routine.

  1. Cannot wait for our 3 day weekend! I am with you on August being all about surviving! Here's to having an awesome cool and fun September!

  2. I can't wait for your fall fashion posts! And your sheet pan recommendation!

  3. I too love TS's new video and song. I cannot get it out my head...... she's brilliant!

  4. Can't wait to see your fashion posts from the shoot!! I adore your style and all these outfits. Too funny your lil photo bomber!! Bring on college football baby!!

  5. I'm pretty pumped for the long weekend as well & I know what that and cooler weather :) Happy Wednesday girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  6. hahahaha i am OBSESSED with the symbolism in TS's new video too! So funny! We nerdy English teachers. ;) I've read a bunch of articles about it and find it fascinating!

  7. I've been desperately hanging onto summer over here (we do that in Buffalo, lol) but I'm all of a sudden reeeally excited about fall! Also, I don't like TS, but I'm into this new song!

  8. I can't wait for the fashion posts!
    I'm with you on being super excited for fall! Cool weather, holidays, feeling all cozy -- it just makes me so happy!

    I used to blog back in 2011 - 2013 and I originally started out on Blogger, then moved to WordPress so I could be self-hosted. Transferring everything was fairly straightforward, but I have a background in web design so that definitely helped. I'm on Squarespace now mainly due to my design portfolio and love it -- even more than WordPress!

  9. It's always nice not to dread anything, haha! Glad everything is going so well!

  10. It's always good not to be dreading anything. I'm super excited for fall because I just love the cool crisp weather. I'm not a huge fan of Taylor Swift but I love her new video. She totally threw shade to so many people and it was just awesome.

  11. YES! The first college football weekend signifies FALL for me! I don't care how hot it is's officially Fall! haha LOVE Dustin's photobomb!

  12. LOVE your outfits and loving these preview to Fall temps as well! Happy Wednesday friend! xo (can't wait to go check out that tailgate party theme - so fun!)

  13. Yay fall! I can't wait :) I love Bluehost! I had an issue yesterday, used online chat and they had it fixed in 20 minutes. So excited for the long weekend!

  14. I'm so with you on the Taylor Swift song and video-it's so addictive! I've literally been reading articles about all of the "easter eggs" hidden in it, I love things like that!

  15. I'm obsessed with TS's new song, too!! OBSESSED! And I loved all of the symbolism in the song and video as well. I ready a lengthy article on Buzzfeed and another on Rolling Stone and it is just so interesting!

  16. The cooler temperatures are ah-mazing! I have a few hallmark movies that I really need to catch up on!

  17. Hooray for college football being back!! Love all of your outfits this month. You look so pretty in green :)

  18. What do you mean 2 preps this year? TWO planning periods? I would kill for that! HahA. Glad we've survived August! Now bring on fall & football & cozy clothes, but most importantly cooler weather!

    1. Gosh, I wish I had TWO planning periods! I have two separate classes to prepare for each day and only one planning period. Not sure what you do, but that's normal for teaching :)
