What’s Up Wednesday August 2017

08/30/2017 10 Comments

I can’t believe it’s already the end of August and it’s time for a What’s Up Wednesday update! Linking up with Shay & Jessi 🙂

WHAT I’M EATING THIS WEEK:

All the seafood, everywhere! Fish tacos have been my number one thing to order anywhere I go now.

WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:

Lake George, NY

When my lovely Minnesota & North Dakota ladies came to visit last year!

I’ve also been reminiscing about my time in LA. How much I miss my friends there and the food scene 🙂

LA ladies in NY

WHAT I’M LOVING:

My Vera Bradley weekender has been the perfect bag for all these quick trips I’ve taken lately. I bought it a few years ago at the Woodbury Commons Outlets outside of NYC.

WHAT I’VE BEEN UP TO:

Crisscrossing the Northeast, making most of the last days of summer 🙂

WHAT I’M DREADING:

Finishing my family’s summer video. Each year we pick a summer song that we like and we lip sync/dance to it. I edit all the footage together and it’s a nice little memory video about the year! It’s a lot of work though and I give myself the deadline of Labor Day Weekend. I have nothing started 🙁

WHAT I’M WORKING ON:

Upcoming day and weekend trips exploring the great Northeast and organizing this blog.

WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:

Raising that banner at Gillette Stadium next week because it’s Patriots football time 🙂 🙂

WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:

GAME OF THRONES. What a season. I’m so happy about where the Starks are! Sad it’s over and we have to wait a whole year for the final season.

 

Reading has taken a back seat after I finished The Guest Cottage earlier this month. Although, I hope to start another book this weekend.

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:

Getting ready for this weekend by listening to ZBB!

 WHAT I’M WEARING:

It’s been cooler these last few weeks of summer so I’ve worn a lot of white jeans, utility jackets and blouses.

 
I’ve been obsessed with my Hei Hei pants from Anthropologie all summer. I can’t wait to wear them in the fall as well. Here are a few other Hei Hei pants I have my eye on:

WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:

So excited to celebrate the last weekend of summer with the family at the lake, doing a little bit of this

and seeing these guys!

Zac Brown Band

It’s my only concert of the summer and I can’t wait 🙂

WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:

I don’t want to rush into fall, I know I’m probably the only girl who doesn’t get excited about it. I AM excited for hiking and some day trips I have planned.

Sleeping Beauty Mountain, Lake George, NY

WHAT ELSE IS NEW:

I’m obsessed with my new lipstick purchases. New makeup is always a good pick me up.

 

Bright colors all the way 🙂

Bonus: What are your best back to school lunch ideas and/or tips!

Since, I’m not really in that world at this point, the only tip I have to offer is what I use to do and that was to eat the same lunch every day lol. It was easy for me to make. Sandwich, pretzels, apples and an ice tea.

 

I hope you join in, this link up is one of my favorites!

    LOVING that weekender bag, such a fabulous color! And you’re definitely not the only girl who isn’t rushing fall. I’ve never understood the rush since summer (in my opinion) is the best – longer days, swimming, outdoor activities, and the best clothes. Fall means winter is coming *shudder* lol.
