What's Up Wednesday (5/27/15)

Happy hump day! Today I'm linking up with Shay and others for  "What's Up Wednesday".

1. What we're eating this week...
this weeks meals include; chicken caesar salad, baked tortellini, chicken dumplings, and baked ziti.
But the salad from last night was soo yummy! I bought a bag of the frozen fajita chicken strips. They really improved the taste of the salad. I love salads but I tend to eat them more often in the Summer.

2. What I'm reminiscing about...
beach days! I sure do love the beach and fortunately we booked a last minute trip with my hubs' family for late July. I can't wait!

3. What I'm loving...
PEONIES! And while I did buy a few plants this year, I only had one bloom. BUT, a friend/neighbor has quite a few bushes in her yard and I convinced her to cut a few for me. I think I may need to buy quite a few more bushes to plant so that I will have lots of pretty blooms next year.

4. What we've been up to...
pool days!

5. What I'm dreading...
I honestly can't think of anything right now. I'm still on a "summer high". Ha!

6. What I'm working on...
my summer project list. It's a long list but I'm trying to organize it and assign certain projects for each month.

7. What I'm excited about...
summer days - no alarm clocks, no schedule, lazy days!

8. What I'm watching/reading..
I previously discussed what I'm currently watching in this post. 

I've read this book before, but needed a refresher. I also plan to read "Bringing up Boys" when I'm finished.

9. What I'm listening to..
KIDZ BOP! My kids are pretty much always in the car with me. So while I'd rather be listening to country or the 90's station, I tend to stick to the christian music station (we only listen to XM radio in our car). But my daughter is always begging for the Kidz bop station. So we have to take turns. :)
 10. What I'm wearing... 
since most of time is spent at the pool, you'll find me in this green bathing suit, and this coverup.

11. What I'm doing this weekend..
I'll be attending my daughter's dance recital on Saturday and then the usual on Sunday (church, naps, etc).

12. What I'm looking forward to next month...

June is a pretty uneventful month for us. But I do have one thing I am looking forward to, just can't share about it yet! Sorry!

13. What else is new...
Smores Oreos!! 

OH MY WORD!! They are probably my favorite specialty oreo so far. I highly suggest you trying them, however you have been warned. ;)

Hope you have a great day!! This four day week sure is flying by!
