What’s Up Wednesday: August

Is it seriously September tomorrow? I’m heading to North Carolina for a spontaneous few days away with my friend Hanna. It should be fun and relaxing to get away for a few more days before summer finally says goodbye. Then, I’ll accept fall into my life. Pumpkin Spice, football, cozy weather. Give it to me! Linking up for What’s Up Wednesday with Mel, Shay & Sheaffer today. You should too.


1. What we’re eating this week
I was by my lonesome for dinner on Monday because of a football draft, so I got really fancy, threw a sweet potato in the microwave, fried up a few pieces of bacon and made a protein shake. It was crazy ya’ll. Ha but seriously, it just wasn’t happening for dinner that night, it needed to be simple. Last night I made teriyaki shrimp and veggies. I’m leaving for North Carolina tonight so I’m sure good food is on the horizon for the rest of the week!

2. What I’m reminiscing about
I was chatting with my friend Maggie this morning about the Today Show & GMA and with her being a SAHM, I’m totally jealous and miss the days of college life when I could mosey out of bed and plop myself on the couch and watch morning talk shows. I’m living vicariously through you Mag!

3. What I’m loving


PUMPKIN SPICE IS BACK AT DUNKIN. Do my caps give enough emphasis on how excited I am? I hope so.

4. What we’ve been up to

The start of Ravens football 🙂 

5. What I’m dreading
Nothing currently 🙂

6. What I’m working on
Launching my blog on the WordPress platform. Stay tuned! But here is a sneak peak of what Karli has been working on for me. Seriously guys she’s awesome and if you need any design help, she is your girl. Plus she has a super fun and witty blog that you should check out too.

7. What I’m excited about
North Carolina, long Labor Day weekend, and the sunflowers that have finally bloomed at this HUGE field near where we live. Can’t wait to see them when I come back this weekend.

8. What I’m watching/reading


BIP. Was anyone else like “Uhhhhhh…what?” when they announced that Nick was the new bachelor? 2 seasons of the Bachelor and 2 seasons of BIP, don’t you think it’s time to just go home? I thought that til I read this article on People and they had a point. Unlike the other contestants, he doesn’t seem to be in it solely for the fame. But now we wait til January to see if he can actually find love.

AGT..we like shows we can abbreviate as you can see.

And then my normal favorites like Flip or Flop & Pioneer Woman

9. What I’m Listening to
Closer by the Chainsmokers & Halsey is my jam right now.

10. What I’m wearing
White bottoms, Labor Day is coming which means I need to wear them as long as I can. They’re my favorite in my wardrobe right now.

11. What I’m doing this weekend

Heading to Carolina Beach, NC for a spontanious trip with my friend, Hanna. And by spontaneous I mean, I decided yesterday to tag along after she invited me and we are leaving today after work. 

12. What I’m Looking forward to next month
Transitioning the house into a fall wonderland.

13. What is your favorite transitional piece?

Plaid button downs for sure. I picked this one up at Express a few weeks ago and could definitely be paired with jean shorts while the weather still cooperates.
What have you been up to? Join the linkup and share!
Happy Wednesday!
