Every month, you answer the following questions, plus a bonus question: “What was your favorite part about summer?”
What we’re eating this week:
I wish I was a better cook.. or just had more ambition to cook some meals! This week, we’re having steak, BLTs and some cookout foods (brats and burgers!). It’s my brother’s rehearsal dinner Friday and that’s on the menu, per the bride & groom’s request; brats, hamburgers, taco dip, caprese bites, etc! Yummy!
What I’m reminiscing about:
If you’re new around these parts, our summer has been insane and intense!! The hubs and I haven’t had a weekend home together (heck, even a weekend home by ourselves with no plans!) since the beginning of May! We’ve had approximately 52 weddings (more like 8 but you get what I’m saying!). I miss those 7 days that we got to have time together; just us two with no other distractions!
What I’m loving:
Truthfully, I’m loving the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!! If you’ve been following my blog then I’m sure you’re so sick of hearing those sweet little words but it’s true I am!
I shared a dress from the sale here.
I’m also wearing these cute jeans (only $38!) here at the winery this past weekend!
What we’ve been up to:
We just spent the past weekend at a friend’s cabin and I shared all about it here! It’s wedding week for my brother this week so I’ve been trying to help my Mama with the rehearsal dinner foods! I’ll be making taco dip #duh and some mini Caprese Bites!
Of course I’ll be making some yummy Sangria as well, because #itstasty!
What I’m dreading:
Summer ending!! We haven’t even been able to enjoy the warm and sunny weather! I’m not ready for Fall just yet… We have about a month left until the Fall weather starts to set in and the only thing I’m excited about for Fall are Pumpkin Spice Lattes! Otherwise, give me all of Summer back please!
What I’m working on:
Making some Special K Bars for my Brother’s dessert table at his wedding as well as making some treats for the rehearsal dinner!
What I’m excited about:
A weekend at home FINALLY with the hubs next weekend! Have I complained about it enough yet?? The only thing on our agenda is the PGA 3M Champions tour that’s hosted right by our house! We’ve gone the last 2 years and it’s just a fun event to walk around and watch!
What I’m watching/reading:
I’m always on the hunt for new books to read so any suggestions are welcome! I just finished the book Southern Charm. It was such an easy and cute read! I’d definitely recommend if you’re looking for a light-hearted book!
I’m probably on my own for this one but I’m pretty much over the Bachelorette this season. I love Jojo but it’s just not entertaining. I’d say that was on my list of things I’ve been watching (since i’ve been watching all season) but i’m kinda over it. I’m not a Jordan fan.. even though I love me some A-Rodge and Robby isn’t my favorite either so we’ll see.. My bet is on Jordan being the “winner!”.
What I’m listening to:
Currently I’m listening to Sweet Home Alabama in the background as I’m writing this post! It’s seriously one of my favorite movies, y’all and I can’t get enough of Reese Witherspoon! Definitely brightens my morning to have this on! Does anyone else love this movie?!
What I’m wearing:
With a few chilly mornings this past weekend, I was thankful for my warm blanket scarf from Nordstrom!
But since luckily, it’s still Summer outside, I can’t get enough Lilly dresses!
What I’m doing this weekend:
Celebrating my Brother’s wedding!!
Check back next week for the recap of the wedding festivities! Follow along on Instagram if waiting that long seems like a terrible idea! 🙂
What I’m looking forward to next month:
Having free weekends!! We have 1 wedding on our radar for August but otherwise a pretty open schedule! I’m looking forward to a few date nights with the hubs 😉
What else is new?
Not much! Life is pretty great around these parts and we’re just finally going to be getting back to our routine of work and some weekends at home!
What was your favorite part about summer?
The amount of time we got to spend with friends and family! As exhausting as it was to be so busy, I’m so glad we got to see so many fun people that we don’t see often!
Hope you enjoyed reading what’s been going on with us this summer! Head over here for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale tee I styled this past weekend!
