What's Up Wednesday

One day I'll get this blogging thing worked back into my routine. I need to do that with a lot of things: blogging, working out, flossing my teeth, get togethers with friends, etc. This season of life that I'm in is such a juggling act and I feel like balls keep getting thrown into the mix without any warning. But, I keep trying at all of those things and one day they will stick and I'll feel like I'm handling this season like the bad ass I know I can be.

Per usual, the entire month flew by in the blink of an eye. There is a direct correlation between age and the speed of time. The older you get the faster it goes. With that being said, it's time for What's Up Wednesday.

What we're eating this week... 21 day fix still, kind of. We did 18 days straight, took a break for Father's Day weekend and the following week since Danny worked Monday, Wednesday and Friday then had class the days in between with no way to keep food cold or cook it. I still followed the plan loosely then the wheels came off again this past weekend. We are both really enjoying it. I've found it easier to just have breakfast and lunch be the exact same every single day then dinner gets the variation. The structure of the containers is also the same for an entire week. That has really helped the meal planning process since the first week I spent like 5 hours just trying to come up with a plan since it requires me coming up with easy meals for Danny to make at work if they aren't already prepared. Okay, enough of that.

What I'm reminiscing about... Danny's broken foot unfortunately. A picture of Tucker popped up on my Timehop today and I remembered it was from the day his foot broke. I mean, this season of life is hard but that is one I prefer to never relive, even if it means I get this sweet curly haired boy back.

What I'm loving... rewatching Friends (again) and Justin's Vanilla Almond Butter. I'm not hard to please.
What we've been up too... working too much and relaxing too little. Tee ball is over. It was a lot of fun and even Danny enjoyed it. He enjoyed it so much he wanted to go eat dinner at the ball park one night when we didn't even have a game. My heart fluttered a little bit because he used to very passionately hate baseball.

What I'm dreading.... July 5th through the 15th. It's been a bad spring for my clients which has delayed my busy season so I'll have to cram it all into a less than 2 week period. I'll survive but it won't be pretty!

What I'm working on... decluttering my house and preparing for a rummage. I swear I just did this in October but I some how managed to still take out almost half of my clothes from my closet.

What I'm excited about... July 4th. It is my favorite holiday and wait for it.... my firefighter doesn't have to work! This will be our 10th 4th of July together and we've spent it together 2 times. One of those times was because of the broken foot. The other was in 2012. We were 11 months into our first year of marriage and 4 years into our relationship. Absolute babies!

What I'm watching/reading... I don't read, but I'm really good at watching tv. I watch Friends almost exclusively and Pretty Little Liars. I'm trying to find a time to get together with one of my BFF's and watch the PLL finale. I can't believe it's over!

What I'm listening too.... song of the month is I Can Fix a Drink by Chris Jansen. So catchy and I can really relate lol.

What I'm wearing... Real. Jeans!

What I'm doing this weekend... I have a girls night planned with a few of my girlfriends. We haven't gotten together since January which is absurd. Sunday is Danny's family reunion which is always fun. Monday and Tuesday are part of the weekend so we're going to try to take Tucker swimming Monday. He's been asking to go but we've been too busy, which is not fair to him.

What I'm looking forward to next month... The 4-H fair. It's so fun watching my husband in his element. Anything farm related is his happy place. I think it's his mini-me's too!

What else is new... I am officially not a landlord anymore! My brother and I sold our last rental house last week and I couldn't be more relieved.

Bonus question this month: WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE JULY 4TH TRADITION? Going to fireworks in a small town near us. I've got every year except for 1 since I was a little girl. We have talked about mixing it up and going somewhere new, but I don't know if we will. I guess I'll find out next week haha. I also took Tucker and my niece to fireworks in our town last year in their pj's. They both had a blast and I think I might do it again this year. 

That's it for June! I still can't believe June is almost over. It's ridiculous!
