What's Up Wednesday--August 2015

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

I am linking up with Shay today to participate in the What's Up Wednesday post for this month!

What we're eating this week...
Dustin was gone Monday and Tuesday so I ate whatever was here.  Tonight he's eating crockpot chicken-n-dumplins and making taco salad for Thursday night.  We'll figure something out for Friday.


What I'm reminiscing about...
Alabama football!!  This was a game we went to a couple of years ago and the weather this week has me really thinking about football season!  I can't wait!


What I'm loving...

These items I picked up at Home Goods last weekend--I am so in love with that bench and I lucked up on getting a discount too.  And I can't wait to set out my fall decorations, too.


What we've been up to...
Working on the house and furnishing it.  We're buying a little at a time.  Each paycheck Dustin and I decide what we're going to buy with our leftover money--I buy things for the house and he gets stuff for the garage or yard.  Lately he's been buying things for the yard to work on making our sod greener and getting rid of weeds that have started sprouting up in random places.


What I'm dreading...
I can't think of anything that I'm dreading??  Maybe having to work on grad school classes??


What I'm working on...
Speaking of grad school, that's what I'm working on lately.  My fall one term started back up and I'm taking 6 hours.  They aren't the most exciting classes but they are two classes closer to finishing!


What I'm excited about...
FALL WEATHER!!!  Actually fall everything!
 I love this quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald about fall.  There's something renewing in the air when it begins to get crisp.

And of course, if you know me then you know how much I love Christmas time.  I went to Hobby Lobby to get a few fall decorations for the house and had to walk down the Christmas aisles.  I seriously contemplated buying a few things so I could get a head start but I got overwhelmed and decided to come back once I figured out the route I want to take. My tree is really neutral but I also want some red and green in the house--I've just got to decide where in the house I'm putting things.


What I'm watching/reading...
I'm waiting on Grey's and Scandal to return in September!!  I just finished The Astronaut Wives Club and LOVED it.  I had a friend order the book it was based off of so I can't wait to hear what she says.  I'm reading stuff for grad school--yuck.


What I'm listening to...
The Alabama Shakes--check out this post.


What I'm wearing...
These are two newer items of clothing I've gotten lately and I'm loving them.
Top and jeans from GAP.  Necklace from Esther's Hope.

Dress from Anthropologie.


What I'm doing this weekend...
Game night with my small group from church, hanging out at home, going to my dad's high school graduation party reunion, and my sister's Advocare party.


What I'm looking forward to next month...
FALL!


What else is new...
Not much is new!  We are settled into our house and it's looking like a home.  I am waiting on September 1st to decorate it for fall--I am loving living in a neighborhood :)
