What’s Up Wednesday ~ August

Here we are, the end of another month. In some ways it went by so fast and in other ways, it’s been long. Crazy how things can feel both ways at the same time. It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a What’s Up Wednesday, but I thought it was high time I brought y’all up to speed.

I’m joining Mel, Shay and Sheaffer in their link up to answer all kinds of questions, but before we get to that I’d love for you to pop over to Imogen Lamport’s Inside Out Style Blog. I was beyond flattered when she asked me to participate in her Stylish Thoughts Series where she asks a series of questions on style related questions and a blogger responds. I loved thinking about the questions and answering them. Thanks Imogen!

Here’s what you might find out…

Goood question! Since I’m actually flying home today, it’s anybody’s guess what we’ll be eating.

We just got the wedding pictures back, so I’m thinking back to the fun we had at the end of May when these two became Mr. & Mrs. 

Being in town to see a bunch of friends and my kids. I am so bad at remembering to document things though. 

See above?

Honestly, I’m happy to report I’m not dreading anything.

I’m trying to do a little “updating” in our guest room and master bedroom. I started redoing the guest room last fall and then stalled out. I want to get new nightstands for our room and then move the tables we use into the guest room. I’ve been shopping for nightstand and have my eye on some, I just need to work up the nerve to order them.

Here are some similar to what I’m looking at. I can’t show you the ones I want because there are only 2 left in stock and you might decide you need them before I make my move…LOL

Next Wednesday we are going on a little getaway to Charleston, SC. We’re meeting friends there for a long weekend and I know we will have a wonderful time, filled with lots of laughter.

I rarely have time to read magazines anymore, but I picked up several to read on my trip. If you haven’t seen a Magnolia Journal, I’m here to tell you it’s a gorgeous magazine. I love that the entire thing is printed on wonderful matte paper. Call me crazy, but it just feels good in your hands and of course it’s laid out beautifully, and has lots of great stuff inside. 

I think half the women I know have read or are reading “Girl Wash Your Face”. I started it on the plane and just need to have some more time to finish it. I think it’s a good read.

We’ve been watching Blacklist for the last month since we ran out of Madame Secretary and none of our regular favorites on during the summer. I don’t hate it, but I sure don’t love it either. LOL

I’m always listening to country music on our Amazon Echo or Dot.

Well I can tell you after looking at all the outfits I’ve worn lately that I really do wear a lot of black. HA

We might go to the movies and see Crazy Rich Asians. I’ve heard it’s a riot!

I’m going “home” to Richmond to visit my parents for a few days and then I’m super excited to be meeting some of my favorite bloggers for a little getaway. I’ve met one (Kellyann) in person and can’t wait to meet the rest. I know we will have THE.BEST.TIME!!!! 

Not much. My bible study starts back tomorrow and I’m excited to get to know and lead a new group of women. 

Hope you are having a great week. What’s up with you?

    What a fabulous trip!!! I love all the pictures and I LOVE your hair straight – it’s so long and you look like a teenager. My parents saw Crazy Rich Asians last night and loved it, it looks great! Sounds like you’ll be home just long enough to do laundry and then repack and head out again – you jet setter you!
    Hope you have a safe and easy trip home!
    Love ya friend,

    Great interview on your style, Friend! I don’t spend a lot of money on jeans, either. Can’t wait to see you next month! I thought about taking Alise to see Crazy Asians, but I’m not sure she would go for it! Have fun visiting your family!!

    Magnolia is such a beautiful magazine. I just recycle most of the magazines I get, but I am going to put a stack of Magnolia’s in our entertainment center bookshelves. I love the sturdy paper too. It looks like you had a fabulous time visiting family and friends!

      Hi Tanya! Yes, I’m in the airport now waiting to head home. I’m going to do the same and save those magazines, they’re too pretty to get rid of. Hope you are having a great week! XO

    Richmond, Virginia? Virginia is my homestate and we are flying into Richmond on the 10th to visit some of my cousins and my Aunt in the Tidewater area. We’ll stay in Williamsburg. I’m so excited. And, Charleston, if you have never been you are in for a treat. And, of course, meeting blogging friends is always such fun.

    • August 30, 2018 / 4:01 pm

      Yes ma’am! I’m flying in there on the 26th to spend a little time at home with my parents. ( I guess you knew that…hahaha) I love Richmond. It’s such a wonderful city and a great place to raise kids. I also love Williamsburg. We have so many memories with our kids there. We’d drive down for the day and had a great little “routine” of things we liked to do, especially the Wythe Candy Store. ?

I saw it with Tony and then went to see it with my sis this past weekend! Loves it as much the 2nd time! Have a great week and I love Charleston! Have fun! xo

      I can’t wait for our blogger trip. We are going to have a ball. We’re also really excited about our Charleston trip. We’ve been there for one day 24 years ago, so it will all feel new. Happy hump day! XO
