What's up...

Well after a great week blogging last week, this is my first blog this week!  I was without a computer a while and I pulled something in my neck, so really I've been resting!

But I am back at it for What's up Wednesday today! Linking up with Mel at The Larson Lingo, Shay at Mix and Match Family and Sheaffer at Pinterest Told Me To

What I'm eating... OUT!!  I haven't cooked here in awhile!  But it's all been super yum!

What I'm reminiscing about... SUMMER!!  I know it's technically not over yet, but I've already started my 2015 Summer in an Insta project on Shutterfly so I've been going back over all my pics and thinking about the summer!  This was last summer's!  I only got it in May.  I am more on the ball this year! (but am waiting for a good sale, too!)  So this is also what I've been working on!

What I'm dreading... School Starting!  #SummerForever...

What I'm loving...these last few lazy days before it's back to the old routine!
What I've been up to...enjoying these last few days but preparing for the new school year!  

What I'm excited about...The launch of The Blended Blog!!!! Find out more here!  

What I'm watching/reading...Watching Public Morals that just premiered last night! {I think it has to grow on me} but this guy is nice to look at!

And I am in the middle of reading The Nightingale.  It's my first Kristin Hannah novel and I am enjoying it.  My cousin recommended it to me and said it was one of the best books she ever read.  Those are not exactly my thoughts but maybe it will take a turn soon!

What I'm listening to... Carrie Underwood's new song, Smoke Break.  The video was just released and I've watched it a few times already.  After a few listens, I'm really liking this song!!

What I'm wearing...Lately I've been spending lots of time in yoga pants and tank tops with my hair pulled back and on top of my head!  And my bathing suit!

What I'm doing this weekend...After a full weekend last weekend (that I never got around to recapping!) I have no set plans this weekend!  But I do know that with this being the last weekend before I head back to school for good, it's definitely going to involve time in the SUN!!!  And hopefully I can finish my book! And maybe another!!

What I am looking forward to next month...Is it bad that I dread but am still looking forward to the start of school?  I love summer, but I think once I'm back into the routine I'll enjoy it! I am looking forward to seeing the kids, reading new books with them and trying out new lessons!!  The new school year begins September 1st!

What else is a few days, I will have been in my house two years!  Wow!  Where does the time go??  Last year I posted on that day!  I plan on doing the same.  Just not sure what spin I'm gonna put on it yet!

Bonus Question of the Month: What's your favorite Back to School Tradition?
I used to have them, but not so much anymore.  I don't have kids to take pictures of on their first day (Or a mom here to take my picture on the first days of teaching every year! HA!) If I did have a tradition these days, I suppose it's be buying myself a new outfit to wear on the first day and treating myself to a drink after the day is done!!

What's up with you? Let me know in the comments below!
