What's Up Wednesday


Hey y'all! Happy Wednesday! I can't believe that it's already the end of August and time for another What's Up Wednesday. This month has absolutely flown by! We're working on our 3rd full week of school and Fall is right around the corner so I'm a happy camper. Today I'm linking up with Shay and we're answering these questions...

WHAT WE'RE EATING THIS WEEK...
Since school has started I've been taking advantage of my crock-pot.. I've been using it every Monday and we will eat left-overs on Tuesday and sometimes on Wednesdays too.
Monday: Slow-cooker pot-roast 
Tuesday: Dinner out with family
Wednesday: Leftover pot-roast
Thursday: Spicy Chicken and Corn Tacos
Friday: We'll be eating out

WHAT I'M REMINISCING ABOUT...
I've been reminiscing about summertime for the past few weeks. While I'm happy to have a routine again and I'm loving my job and sweet kiddos, I always miss the carefree days of summer once it's over. Although I'm missing summer, I'm more than ready for Fall!

WHAT I'M LOVING...
My job. I was having a rough week last week, and was extremely stressed and overwhelmed by some of the things going on at school, but on Friday morning a sweet little girl in my classroom brought me a gift-bag filled with all of my favorite candy and it completely turned my week around. No matter how stressful teaching can be at times, it's definitely one of the MOST rewarding things I've ever done and it's such a blessing to be able to teach some of the most precious kids. 


WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO...
We've been busier than usual around here since I started back to school so we've been soaking up all of our time together on the weekends. 

WHAT I'M DREADING...
I've applied to grad school and am planning to start on my Masters degree either this October or January. I told myself I would start as soon as I completed my first year of teaching this past May, but I've been putting it off all summer. I know I need to just start and get it over with, but I'm definitely NOT looking forward to it. The closer we get to October, the better January is sounding. ;)

WHAT I'M WORKING ON...
For the past month or so I've been working on ALL the school stuff...lesson plans, grading papers, etc.

WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT...
FALL...I can't even contain my excitement about the fact that fall is right around the corner. It's been getting a little cooler here (and by "cooler" I mean it's been in the low to mid-80's, which is very unusual for this time of the year), I've been burning fall candles for the past few weeks, and I'm bringing out all my fall decorations this weekend. Fall is by far my favorite season, I just love this time of the year SO much.

WHAT I'M WATCHING/READING...
Chase and I have been watching Suits and can't get enough. We weren't sure what to watch next after finishing Chicago PD and stumbled upon Suits while scrolling through our fire stick. We hadn't heard of it before, but decided to try it and it's SO good y'all. 

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO...
As usual, I'm listening to my favorite Pandora station on repeat.

WHAT I'M WEARING...

I've been wearing all the floral patterns here lately.

WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEKEND...
This weekend is a THREE day weekend, and we are so excited. Friday I have plans for a little girls night with my bestie, Saturday I'm planning on decorating for fall and spending the day with Chase, Sunday we'll go to church and then we're going to my MIL's to hangout by the pool and grill out. Right now we don't have any plans for Monday, which is perfectly fine by me.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH...
Oh goodness...there is so much that I'm looking forward in September. We are spending next weekend camping with my sister and her fiance at Godstock (an event our church hosts every year), we have a wedding and a wedding shower to attend, we're headed to Gatlinburg at the end of the month, and we have a week of fall break at the end of Sept. beginning of Oct. Most of all, I'm looking forward to cooler weather, and all things fall-related.

WHAT ELSE IS NEW....

  1. Teaching can be so exhausting yet so rewarding! Start your master's soon so that your can get it done and over with!! I'm so happy to be done with mine. Some of my coworkers who are much older than us are just now getting theirs and it's so rough with them having families and trying to find the time to do the work!

    1. Thanks so much for the advice! I'm definitely planning on starting as soon as possible. I can't imagine trying to find the time to get all the school work done with kiddos.
