Today I’m linking up with The Larson Lingo, Pinterest Told Me To, and Mix & Match Mama to answer the questions above.
WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
I’m having to be creative this week so we don’t go to the grocery store anymore until the end of the month, but I did make two really good things this week. THESE stuffed mushrooms and THESE homemade cinnamon rolls. I made the mushrooms for a girl’s night and they were gone super fast. And the cinnamon rolls were so good they didn’t even need icing! I’ve heard that using floss cuts cinnamon rolls really smoothly and this was my first time trying it. I can’t believe I haven’t been doing this. Perfect!
WHAT I’M REMENISCING ABOUT:
I actually saw this picture at my parents’ house and thought “Wow, that is a lot of denim.” My mom was the Director at the preschool we went to, so she always took the pictures with us.
WHAT I’M LOVING:
1. I’m still so obsessed with my “new to me” car! I just love everything about it! It feels so luxurious inside!
2. Upcoming Dates – We have a lot of events coming up. August is our 8th anniversary and it’s also the month we usually do a vacation since Ryan has some time off. I don’t think we are going to go far this year, but may do a staycation??? I still can’t leave Maddox just yet.
3. Designing – I’ve been creating new signs and adding more to the shop. Sometimes all I can do is keep up with orders if I don’t have a lot of time, but Ryan has been giving me some time to work by taking care of the boys, so I’ve been able to just design (my favorite part). Here are a few…Superheroes for the win. “Your text here” is obviously whatever the customer chooses to have me write in there. I’m working on a princess version now to replace the superheroes. If you’re a blogger and are interested in any of these, just let me know.
WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
We’ve been playing a lot in the backyard, meeting up for play dates with friends, and I had a Bachelorette watch party on Monday with those yummy snacks at the bottom (plus the mushrooms). We stayed up way too late, but it was fun!
WHAT I’M DREADING:
I don’t think I’m really dreading anything. Like I mentioned last Friday, I am training for a half marathon and I’m pretty nervous given my run yesterday…I died after 2 miles. 2 miles! Oh wait, yes, I’m dreading another 2 months of extreme heat! August is our worst month with the heat and I’m dreading it.
Sometimes, I literally lie underneath our fan on the living room floor to cool off!
WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
I’m working on signs like I mentioned. I have some super cute quotes coming soon! I’m also working on getting my blogged switched over to WordPress. I was contemplating a name change for the blog, but I don’t think I’m going to, so now I can move forward.
WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
I’m excited about our anniversary coming up. I’m excited about my last Bible study session tomorrow (not the last part, but getting together)…we’re going out to eat. I’m excited about Beckham’s summer school program on Thursday and hanging out at my parent’s house. I’m excited about possibly losing some weight from running! :)
Ryan and I on our honeymoon 8 years ago in Jamaica!
WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
I’ve been reading stuff on the internet…that’s about it. I do have several books I need to dive into though.
WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
I listen to kids. All day. All day long! And I’m thankful.
See? It’s too hot in Texas to wear shirts.
WHAT I’M WEARING:
It’s funny, I don’t ever take pictures of my outfits, but I took this the other day because I loved the top and wanted to share. I got it from Target. I pretty much wear shorts and a tank top…whatever I sweat the least in. You can pretty much guarantee I’ll be in workout clothes 5 out of 7 days a week. If only I could say I worked out that much.
WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
We are going to our Youth Group reunion this Saturday for lunch. Ryan and I were in the same youth group but about 8 years apart, so we didn’t know each other. This weekend their having a reunion of whoever has been in our old church’s youth group. A lot of them are closer to his age. Afterwards, we’re going swimming and having dinner with some friends at their house. Oh, and grocery shopping! August 1…a new meal plan and new grocery trip. Anyone else get excited about a clean slate for a new budget?
WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Like I mentioned, I’m excited about our anniversary, some more free time with Ryan and the kids before he goes back, and I’m also excited about getting back on a schedule. The school year always gets us back into routine.
WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
I got glasses. I feel very self conscious in them…even Maddox is unsure. It’s nice to have things sharpened up though.
BONUS QUESTON THIS MONTH: WHAT WILL YOU MISS ABOUT THIS SUMMER?
Most definitely sleeping in a bit (thank you Ryan) and having more “me time.” I do thrive on a schedule, so I’m still looking forward to that.
Hope you had fun catching up! Happy Hump Day.
I love connecting with y’all. My Facebook, Instagram(@snyderstellall) and Pinterest.
