What's Up Wednesday {08/30/19}


Hello friends! It's the last Wednesday of the month and time to link up with Shay and Sheaffer for this month's What's Up Wednesday! The prompts are highlighted so if you're a blogger, check it out and join the fun, if not, I'd love it if you participated in the comments! Here's what's up this past month!


What We've Been Up To

Packing to get my daughter ready to move across the country. These space saver bags were a lifesaver! They're the jumbo size and come in a pack of 8.


I know it wasn't easy, but we finally convinced her to pare down a few things and leave them at home. 



I've also been working on my summer bucket list. Despite how busy this month was, I did manage to check off a few things...

Not brunch per my list, but still, girlfriend time. Attended First Friday with my girlfriend where local shops stay open late, serve wine, and some have live music. It's always fun to walk around, sip and shop! This sign cracked me up!


We made it a point to eat outside on the patio as much as possible. You can see my little sliver of a view of our lake.


My husband and I had a day date at a wine and jazz fest earlier this month. Side note, I just noticed the guy in the back of this pic and it looks like he had too much wine! 😁



Last weekend our old neighborhood had their annual Cooperation of the Bands event. It was a perfect sunny 70-degree day and so lovely to spend the day outside friends listening to music!


What I'm Dreading

College drop-off. This quote sums it up!



What I'm Watching

Succession on HBO. The series is about the lives of a fictional family that controls one of the biggest media and entertainment conglomerates in the world. 


What I'm Listening To

I'm a huge fan of Gretchen Rubin, and I started listening to her Happier podcast this month. The episodes are quick, about 30 minutes, and she gives little tidbits of advice the center around habits to make you happier. 


What I'm Wearing

I'd love it if you followed me on Instagram and LIKEtoKNOW.it, if you're not already, where you'll find more outfit inspiration! 





What I'm Doing This Weekend

Flying out to the east coast bright and early on Friday to drop our daughter off at college. She moves in Saturday, and then we're flying back Sunday night. Coming home to an empty nest is going to be bittersweet!


What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month

Keeping busy. I'll be going to First Friday again with my girlfriends, a vintage car show with the hubs and hosting a care package party with a group of moms to send our college girls a huge group care package! 


What Else is New

Some of my popular posts this month were 10 Clean Beauty Swaps to Make Now and DIY Tile Photo Coasters. Yesterday, I reviewed the September Simply Earth Essential Oils Recipe Box and tomorrow I'll be back for the Thursday Fashion Files linkup. I'll be joining Fonda from Savvy Southern Chic for her Forgotten, Ignored and Unworn series! 

As always, thank you for reading!
