What's Up Wednesday

Hey all!  Another month is coming to an end....can you believe September is right around the corner!? 

The end of the month means it's time for another edition of What's Up Wednesday!

What We're Eating This Week....

Saturday:  Homemade Pizza (you can find my pizza dough recipe here)
Sunday:  Grilled Pork Chops, Cheesy Grits, and Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Monday:  Herbed Turkey Breast, Roasted Red Potatoes, Salad
Tuesday:  Date Night!
Wednesday:  Peanut Noodles and Grilled Chicken

What I'm Reminiscing About....

What a great time we had when my sister was here two weeks ago.  I look forward to her visit every year and this year the weather could not have been more perfect!  Such a great week on the lake :)

What I'm Loving.....

Fresh eggs!!!  We have at least 3 hens laying now!!  We are averaging 2 eggs per day, but have been lucky enough to get three in one day a few days ago.  Yay!!

What We've Been Up To....

Soaking up the last few weeks of summer before the craziness of the school year begins. 

What I'm Dreading.... starts in three weeks and I still have yet to empty out Redmond's backpack from last year.  I have a backpack and basket full of papers, projects and works of art to go through and figure out what to do with.  Why must I always procrastinate??? 

What I'm Working On....

Organization!  Time to get the planner out and start writing things down.  Also working on getting the house a little more under control and organized.  See...maybe if I'm more organized I wouldn't wait three months to empty out Redmond's backpack. Stay tuned for more on this :)

What I'm Excited About....

Blogging more!  I've been very MIA over the summer and I'm looking forward to getting back into it once the school year starts and we're on a set schedule.  Be sure to come back next Thursday to check out The Monthly Meet Up - a monthly link-up party I co-host with my girl Marie on the first Thursday of every month!

What I'm Watching/Reading....

I've been marathon watching The Next Food Network Star on Netflix while Jason has been gone.  I'm pretty sure I need my own cooking show now.  Don't you agree???

As far as reading goes, I've been researching fruit trees!  We're already thinking Spring here and trying to figure out what kind of trees to plant and how to make our garden stay alive be better next year.  Fun on the homestead, y'all!

What I'm Listening To....

The coffee brewing, the waterfall outside in our fish pond, Oliver sleeping on the floor at my feet and little else.  Love quiet mornings!

What I'm Wearing....

The weather is starting to get a little cooler, especially in the evenings and early morning....time to start breaking out the hoodies!  I do love a good, cozy hoodie....and I'm thinking I need this one ASAP!

What I'm Doing This Weekend....

The kids are going to their grandparent's house, hubby is having his annual Fantasy Football draft and mama is going shopping!  So looking forward to spending the day doing one of the things that I love.  Ha!!

What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month....

Cooler weather, leggings, boots, soups, chili and drinking beer by the bonfire.

What Else Is New....

Jason went "camping" with the kids in the backyard last weekend.  We had a fire, made s'mores, then moved into the tent to play Crazy 8s and Old Maid.  Once the games were done, I came inside (I mean, my bed was right there....) and the kids and Jason stayed in the tent.  Ashlyn lasted about an hour and Redmond lasted two :)  So, we all ended up sleeping in the house, but had a great time while they were "camping"!

Well, that's it for this Wednesday!  Thanks for checking my blog out and don't forget to join in the fun! 

Until next time,
~ Sara :)

I'm joining MelShay, and Sheaffer for their What's Up Wednesday link-up!


  1. I need that sweatshirt for my 21 year old son! So funny! I hear ya on being MIA from blogging during the summer. I've been the same way.

    1. Isn't that sweatshirt amazing!? I NEED it! I'm going to miss summer, but I'm kind of looking forward to fall I must say :)

  2. My mom has chickens and she gets really excited when they are laying eggs! And I love reaping the benefits haha!
