What’s Up Wednesday – 8/27/19

Happy Wednesday! I am back to work and that change gets me every year. Whoa! I am beat after two days of meetings all day! I know it is important information but the switch from sitting poolside all day to sitting in a cold, dark cafeteria all day gets me. I am linking up with Shay and Sheaffer to share what’s been going on. Here goes…

WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK…
Monday: leftovers
Tuesday: leftovers
Wednesday: I have no idea
Thursday: Probably out somewhere
Friday: Food truck at the pool
Saturday: grill maybe?
Sunday: I have no idea
This is Summer Sarah’s last stand. When we go back to school eating out isn’t really an option, so I’m not worrying about eating in at all.

WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT…
The sweet first day of school pictures that have been popping up in my memories!

WHAT I’M LOVING…
I’m loving Camp Gigi week. For the past 6 years, my mom has watched the boys the week I go back to work. My mom does it right for Camp Gigi! The kids have been on some fun trips with my mom during Camp Gigi – Dutch Wonderland, Crayola Factory, Caverns, Top Golf, Oyster Dredging, and Gettysburg Battlefield. Every day is a surprise and the boys can’t wait to hear what they are doing each day! They also get two sleepovers at my parents, one solo and one together. It is so much fun and I wish I could go to Camp Gigi instead of go back to work!

I’m loving all the sunshine!! We only had one rainy day after our beach rainy day. I cleaned out my linen closet which is a good thing, but the sunshine is always better!

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO…
We have been pooling and beaching as much as possible to finish out summer.

Luke played in a soccer tournament this weekend and they came in second.

Jack has been playing a bunch of golf and won his junior league flight.

WHAT I’M DREADING…
I love the busy more than anyone, but I know that I will reach a point that I am tired of our busy routine.

I’m also dreading colder weather. It has been chilly around here this week and it has me dreading the change in seasons. I like it warm all the time!

WHAT I’M WORKING ON…
I am working on a few new initiatives at school this year to get more kids reading more books. This is our school’s 50th year and we are celebrating all year long. I am working on some fun stuff to celebrate 50 in the media center.

WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT…
I am excited to start the new school year! The meetings are tough, but once we get the kids in school the place comes to life! I love seeing all their sweet faces walking through the halls and in the media center. I love hearing all the joyful noises that echo through the school. I appreciate the routine that the school year brings to our family.

WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING…
I’ve been catching up on my DVR. I’m trying to get through Southern Charm and the Real Housewives of OC just started up again. How will I ever catch up???
Luke got into Sugar Rush on Netflix and now we’re all watching it. He even asked to bake the other night.

I’ve been reading a ton this summer! Check out my summer book reviews here! Warning: I love a beach read!

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO…
I found a Spotify playlist called Beach with Zac Brown Band, Buffett, and Kenny Chesney. It has been on repeat on the kitchen speaker when we are home. These songs have been my mantra lately…

I’ve been listening to Another Mother Runner podcasts while I run and I love it. Last summer a friend suggested listening to podcasts for longer runs because it is like talking with girlfriends while you run. I tried it and I love it. It really is like running with your girlfriends!

WHAT I’M WEARING…
I’ve been wearing a bunch of bathing suits. I love the Title Nine bathing suits. They are cute, comfy, and they stay put when I’m playing or moving around in the pool.

I picked up this new skort from Lilly and it was perfect for my first day back to work. Cute, comfy, and summery.

WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND…
Our schedule is pretty wide open this weekend which means our plans are Pool 11-8 Saturday, Sunday, and Monday! My favorite!

WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD NEXT MONTH…
My birthday is next month and I can’t wait to celebrate! I’ll be 39 and don’t have any big plans but birthdays are always fun!
September 28 is Day 1000 in my running streak. I have a challenge coming for everyone on September 28th, so keep an eye out.

WHAT ELSE IS NEW…
I think that’s about it. School starting, soccer starting, basketball tryouts, swim team starting, I think that is plenty!
