What's Up Wednesday [Six Twenty Eight Seventeen)


What we are eating this week...

We have been doing a lot of grilling this month since we moved into the new house and got a new grill. We call the grill Black Betty. She's a beauty. It's been a hot month and grilling is just so much more convenient. Burgers, brats, hot dogs, steaks, potatoes, corn...pretty much everything.



What I'm reminiscing about...

Hailey being a 1st grader...



Our Minnesota trip...





Hailey turning 6 and her party last Saturday...



What I'm loving...

Our pool...



What we've been up to...

Swimming...lots of swimming...



Wayne and I also binged The Ranch on Netflix. If you haven't watched it, you NEED to!!! We finished Season 3 in two nights (10  - 30 minute episodes) and it gets funnier with each season!! Plus, it has Sam Elliott. Duh.



What I'm dreading...

Nothing really. The rest of the year is going to be a busy one. I am changing jobs and things are also changing at Wayne's work, so there's just a lot of changes and busy-ness on the horizon. All very good things for our little family.

What I'm working on...

Wrapping things up at work this week. Everything on the job front happened very fast, so it's been a little bit of a whirlwind.

Getting my pictures organized from my phone to Dropbox and from Dropbox to my external hard drive.

Continuing to get the house put together. Still. We moved Memorial Day weekend. We were there for less than 2 weeks, gone to Minnesota for 10 days and now we've been back for about a week. So there's still some things that need to get put away, areas organized and items purchased.

What I'm excited about...

My new job, if you can't tell. I've been kinda bored the last couple months and feeling very unfulfilled, so this will be a good change and I will be back in FAMILY LAW!!



What I'm watching/reading...

Not reading much other than blogs. I already said we binged The Ranch. We also need to catch up on The Walking Dead. We are so behind. I haven't been watching too much TV lately. Can you believe I haven't seen 1 episode of this season's Bachelorette? I know. It's unheard of.

What I'm listening to...

A little bit of everything and definitely Chris Young and The Swon Brothers. They are gonna be in town on Friday at Red Rock Casino! Woohoo!






What I'm wearing...

Capris and tanks to work. Shorts and tanks on the weekends. It's been crazy hot here, so the less clothing the better. And my swimsuit whenever I can. Again. Lots of swimming and fun in the sun!

What I'm doing this weekend...

This weekend is 4th of July!! I was supposed to have a 4 day weekend (Saturday - Tuesday), but my new job wants me ASAP, so I am working Monday to get all the introductory stuff out of the way.

Friday night, Chris Young and The Swon Brothers are at Red Rock Casino, which will be so fun!!

I'm also hoping to get a brown cupboard painted in our house this weekend. All the other trim in the house is white, except for a brown cupboard upstairs in our hallway. I hate it.

We will be grilling and swimming for sure.

What I'm looking forward to next month...
  • Starting my new job on the 3rd.
  • 4th of July and fireworks.
  • Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are here on the 13th.
  • Griffin turns 2 on the 14th.

That face melts me.

What else is new...

We purchased a season ticket package for NHL this year! It's Vegas' first year having any professional sports team, so we are every excited! Also, the Minnesota Wild come to Vegas next year on March 16th!!


That's about it friends!! Have a great holiday week!

Friday Letters

Dear Vacation,

While I loved every minute of you (minus the humidity), I am happy to be home. There is something wonderful about being home and getting back to the norm of life. Mostly I missed my bed.

Dear Starbucks,

I am sorry I broke up with you. I just need a break. It's me, not you.

#Iamcoffeefree


Dear Fatty Foods,

Why do you have to taste so good? I love you and hate you all at the same time.

#swimsuitseason


Dear Griffin,

You were so good on the plane ride. I really have no complaints. Next time though you will have your own seat.

#almosttwo


Dear Hailey,

You will be 6 on Monday. 6! You will have to use both hands now when someone asks you how old you are. Wahhh!

#stopgrowing

Dear Husband,

You are my everything and a rockstar!

#iloveyou


Dear Weekend,

Please don't go by too fast. I desperately need you to stick around a little while longer. You will be busy, but fun.

#pleasedon'tgo


Dear Sleep,

I miss you. Griffin is still not sleeping through the night. Hopefully one day? One can still hope, right?

#wishfulthinking


Dear Job,

I am sorry I broke up with you. It's me, not you. I promise.
