What we're eating this week:
Seriously....this sign is speaking my love language this week. I'm over cooking. Ready for the fall weather and cream of mushroom soups! haha!
Monday: Marla brought over a roast, potatoes, and carrots. YUM!
Tuesday: Mama had a girl's night out!! I grabbed some food for Tab and the kiddos to eat.
Wednesday: Meatloaf-when I was grocery shopping this weekend that sounded so good. The only day there is a REAL meal! I went back in and added the link to the meatloaf. I must tell you...my kiddos gobbled this up!!
Thursday: 10-year-Anniversary Dinner OUT! Kiddos are having pizza. They'll be so disappointed. Wink, wink!
Friday: We're leaving bright and early to head to Missouri to visit my family. Dinner is whatever my mom has ready. :)
What I'm Reminiscing About:
Moving DAY! Ugh! We moved into our new house about a month ago. We still have lots to do-some small things and some big things that we'll do at a later date, but it's FINALLY feeling like home. We have things in place. We have furniture. We have boxes unpacked. It feels so much better. Whew! I'm thankful that's behind us!
What I'm Loving:
That we'll be seeing these faces in just two days! We planned this little Missouri trip MONTHS ago and I think we're going to get to see most of my cousins/family.
What We've Been Up To:
Lots of this!
What I'm Dreading:
In just a few short weeks, Nixon starts kindergarten and Ebby Lee goes to first grade. I'm not dreading their school days. Ebby Lee absolutely loved school. I think Nixon will have so much fun as well. It's amazing to see them become more independent. But to be more detailed, this is the moment I'm dreading...
That moment when you have to show nothing but happiness and excitement on your face because you know he's so nervous. That first moment when he walks in the door and is off for a new adventure. That moment when your heart breaks just a little because you can't be there with him.
I'm not a crazy helicopter mom, trust me! But...that first moment when they walk in on the first day is HARD! I'm dreading that moment!
What I'm Working On:
Enjoying our last three weeks of summer before school starts!!
What I'm Excited About:
OUR NEW HOUSE!! It's FINALLY coming together. I don't want to share any pictures until I have a room complete (which could be months), but it's feeling like home!
What I'm watching/reading:
These were the same two books I was reading last month! haha! #myexcuseisthemove I'm watching Real Housewives AND Big Brother. Who are you guys rooting for?? I'm kind of on board for Johnny Mac!!
What I'm Listening To:
The Quiet-we had a crazy week last week, so today the kiddos are all resting/quietly playing in their room and I'm enjoying the quiet.
What I'm Wearing:
I'm wearing nothing but swim suits and flip flops again this month, but I'm getting ready for cooler weather with these Nordstrom goodies.
What I'm Doing This Weekend:
We're having a big family Pool Party on Saturday at my parent's house. I heard there might be a wiffle ball game and you guys should know that my hand/eye coordination is NOT good!! I usually strike out during wiffle ball. #howisthatevenpossible I'm going to trying to persuade everyone for a washer's tournament instead. haha!
What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:
Soaking up the very last moments of summer!! Football season is right around the corner and we're enjoying having Tab on the weekends before our life gets crazy!
What Else is New:
During the move, we lost Ebby Lee's American Girl Doll!!! I kept thinking she'd pop up sometime, but it still hasn't happened. We have every box inside our house unpacked and I think she's gone! I even tried the condo in Florida, because I'm not sure when the last time she had her was. No luck! If you see one similar to her lying around somewhere, CALL ME!
What will I miss most about summer?
Having NO schedule and spending my days making fun memories with my favorite people.
