What’s Up Wednesday – June 2020

It’s my second edition of What’s Up Wednesday!

You can catch my May post here.

The last Wednesday of the month I link up with Mix and Match Mama and share all the things! It’s a little food, a little family, a little what we’re doing, a little what we’re watching and a little bit of everything else, all in one post.

So let’s dive right in!

WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:

Monday I made Danielle Walker’s Orange Chicken, we had leftovers Tuesday, tonight is Pesto Pasta night, Thursday I am making Carne Aside burrito bowls, with leftovers the following night. Then I will reevaluate for the weekend and see if we have any other hodge podge meals I can make or leftovers for the weekend!

WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:

Time with family!

We had a wonderful visit with the grandparents at Green Acres and loved every minute of it!

WHAT I’M LOVING:

Swimming with the boys and soaking up all the lake time!

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

Recently just spending time with friends! It has been nice to expand our quarantine circle a little bit and see friends that we have missed so much!

WHAT I’M DREADING:

Fear of the unknown.

I signed our oldest up for a church camp and I am excited for him and happy to have him there, but anxieties are starting to build up and I am fighting fears.

WHAT I’M WORKING ON:

It is so weird to say, but I have submitted my book proposal (about my testimony and how God has worked in my life) to three different literary agents and waiting to hear from them.

I am also interviewing to teach with VIPKid! I interviewed a couple years ago and was approved for the next phase of interviewing, but then sat on it and never did anything. Clark was still waking in the night a lot and I was exhausted with my Candida and hormone imbalances and was just not in a good place to work nights teaching children how to speak English. Fast-forward to today and I feel so much better and excited for the possibility of this new venture!

I’ll keep you updated!

WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:

Just all of the upcoming work-from-home possibilities that I mentioned above!

WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:

Y’all! I am so late to the game but Schitt’s Creek is so great! Episodes are less than 25 minutes (Amen!), light, funny, sarcastic, and easy to watch. I am loving it!

I am currently reading A Woman is No Man and it is so fascinating!! Goodreads describes it best: “In Brooklyn, eighteen-year-old Deya is starting to meet with suitors. Though she doesn’t want to get married, her grandparents give her no choice. History is repeating itself: Deya’s mother, Isra, also had no choice when she left Palestine as a teenager to marry Adam. Though Deya was raised to believe her parents died in a car accident, a secret note from a mysterious, yet familiar-looking woman makes Deya question everything she was told about her past. As the narrative alternates between the lives of Deya and Isra, she begins to understand the dark, complex secrets behind her community.”

It is so good!!

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:

Currently I am listening to Jen Hatmaker’s podcast about the Enneagram (post coming out next week with my Enneagram number).

And my boys sitting next to me playing with Legos 😉

WHAT I’M WEARING:

My NEW Lovebug Apparel tee!!! I LOVE it!

WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:

Going out on the boat of course! 😉

We didn’t go the last two weekends because we were out of town with family and then had other stuff going on…so we are making up for it this weekend! It looks like it will be windy both Saturday and Sunday (bummer!) but we will still venture out one of those days and find a cove to anchor and swim!

WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:

4th of July on the lake!

We are going to watch fireworks from the boat this year and super pumped for the boys to see them from the lake this year!

My cousin is expecting her first baby and I can’t wait to see her, her momma, and sister, who will be visiting and celebrating the new baby girl with family! We are having a little family dinner and swim at my grandmothers home and I can’t wait to see everyone!

I have a girls day planned with some precious ladies from our Life Group and we are taking our boat out for the day and it will be so nice to just chill and float with such sweet women!

WHAT ELSE IS NEW:

I go back to see my alternative doctor at the beginning of July and interested to see how the Candida is healing now that I have added back in fruit and the occasional honey. Praying for good results and blood work! And excited for my IV therapy! 😉

Well, that’s it for June!! It has already come and gone!

Have a blessed rest of the week/month and make sure to come back on Friday to read my latest Friday Favorites!
