What’s Up Wednesday – August 2020

It’s my FOURTH What’s Up Wednesday!

I am a week behind! I usually post my What’s Up Wednesday post on the last Wednesday of the month, but gracious! August just snuck past me and we are already in September!! Gracious!

Just to recap, 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 look at August 2020!

WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:

Well, it is Wednesday and we’ve already had the Beach Bum Chili from Earthy Andy‘s exclusive recipe booklet from pre-ordering her new cookbook and it was delicious! It was completely plant-based and full of flavor! I loved it and will definitly make it again!

Monday we had crock-pot chicken and made tacos with them and had leftovers last night. Tonight I am making vegan cauliflower curry soup, which I made before and it is also so full of flavor and ridiculously delicious! Then Thursday we will have black bean burgers with sweet potato fries and leftovers on Friday…then meal planning all over again on Saturday!

I have also been on a little coconut yogurt kick for breakfast. I am loving starting my morning with a hot cup of mushroom coffee, then a few hours later I eat a very small bowl of plain coconut yogurt, topped with hemp seeds, coconut flakes, a few organic raspberries and walnuts. Then I make my smoothie for lunch or a raw salad, have a snack and then dinner is whatever I plan for the week.

WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:

I am already missing summer! How is that possible?! I feel like even though we went on the boat a TON this summer, it just wasn’t enough! And all of a sudden, we go from 105 degrees, to fall. In a week.

Seriously…Monday it was 105 and next week well be in the 70s and 80s. Goodbye, summer! We will miss you!

WHAT I’M LOVING:

I got a new planner and folio and LOVING it! I need seriously organization and my Plum Paper organizer helps SO much!

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

A lot actually! We started week NINE of homeschool and I posted an update Monday, I’m a busy working momma now and I absolutely LOVE it! I love being an editor at Frisco STYLE Magazine! Everyone is super nice and like family already! My first issue as editor just came out and it is so rewarding to see it and read it and hold it in my hands! I am so thankful that God has given me this opportunity and I do not take it for granted for one minute!

WHAT I’M DREADING:

Hmmm….this one stumps me almost every month. I honestly don’t know what I am dreading. I am just thankful and feel grateful for every day that the Lord has given me.

WHAT I’M WORKING ON:

LOTS! Haha!

We are all hard at work crafting the October’s FSM issue, getting things set up with the photographer, getting articles in and editing, as well as writing one myself. I have started a new Bible study and hoping to get the book SOON so I can start working on it, I planted our fall veggies in our garden earlier this week, and just busy doing the regular day-to-day mom stuff + homeschooling!

WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:

October is going to be a great issue and I cant wait to see it all come together!

We have booked a VRBO for Tennessee and I CANNOT WAIT to hike with my boys and be outside in nature, sitting on this patio, watching the sunrise and sunsets. I am so exited!!

WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:

We have started watching The Umbrella Academy and y’all…it’s different! It’s weird but interesting and I just cant stop watching. If you like SciFi, mystery, Marvel-type superpowers, then you’ll love it!

I am also all caught up on the Housewives, so there’s that! 😉

I am sooo behind on my reading, but working on My Dearest Hamilton as well as listening to No Easy Day on Audible. I will finish one day, but right now I am finding my groove with everything going on and leisure reading really isn’t at the top of my to-do list at the moment.

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:

During my morning walks, I am listening to the Bible App – the one year plan and enjoying listening to the NLT version. I am still rocking out to the Hamilton soundtrack while I cook and I ask Alexa to play Hillsong a lot.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

I have fallen in love with the magnetic eyelashes and I just cannot get enough! These KISS brand ones are so amazing, so easy to wear and apply and just so fast! I used to spend way too long applying mascara over and over, trying to get length and thickness…no more! Just a swipe of magnetic eyeliner and voila! IN LOVE!

WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:

It’s Labor Day weekend…so that mean another weekend on the boat! We are actually going Friday afternoon instead of Sat/Sun/Mon because it gets pretty crazy out there on the holidays, so we will enjoy it the day before.

WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:

Like I shared above, we will be going to Tennessee for the first time and I am so exited and looking forward to all the tree-hugging adventures! Please comment below your MUST-SEE places in Tennessee around Pigeon Forge area.

WHAT ELSE IS NEW:

Not much else! We have a few house reno stuff we are chatting about but otherwise just getting into the groove of being a FT working homeschooling momma!


August is in the books! How was your August? Share below!

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