What's Up Wednesday: August

Happy Wednesday!

Today, I am linking up with some of my favorite bloggers:  ShayMel and Shaeffer.

Instead of my normal WIWW post, I am sharing "What's up" in my life :) 

1. What I'm Eating

Well, I have been eating a bunch of coffee! hehe, I know that it's not technically food, but it is in my food groups ;)
I have also been eating watermelon from Dad's garden 
The one he is holding was 35 lbs! 

It's the Grad Life

2. What I'm Reminiscing about

This month, Show & Tell Tuesday's theme was "Who were you in high school" It was so fun to reminisce especially before starting a new chapter in my life.
Look how little we were! Can't believe this picture was taken 5 years ago!
It's the Grad Life

It's the Grad Life

3.What I'm loving

I am loving extra time with my family. Today we say goodbye to my grandpa. It's hard for us, but we know he is no longer suffering. Not only do we celebrate his life, but we are celebrating his & my grandma's 58th wedding anniversary. They loved each other so unconditionally.
My mom is one of 11 children, and it's been hard for all of us to get together. I am glad we can all make it to say goodbye. 

4. What I've been up too

Well, I have just started grad school! ( I made it through the first week!) and watching Zack coach football
His team won on Thursday (the JV's) and Varsity won on Friday!

It's the grad life
He's the one in khaki's :)

A victory huddle! His first game & win as a head JV Coach! 

Varsity one in double overtime! I don't think my heart can take many more of those!

5.What I'm dreading

I am dreading my first round of tests! We have 4 on one day. I think it's our own little version of "welcome, to grad school" 
I sure love a good Pinterest Meme about Classwork :)

6. What I'm working on

I am working on therapy plans. I started working in the clinic Monday, and have my first "official" therapy session on Monday. I have been searching around for some fun toys to incorporate into therapy! 

My first day of clinic picture :)

7. What I'm Excited about

I am excited about Fall! I just bought my Favorite Fall scents from Bath & Body works, and soon I will be breaking out my Yankee Candle Products
Suncrisp Apple Harvest Body Lotion - Signature Collection - Bath & Body Works
Click Picture to Shop ;)

Glassy Pumpkin Nightlight Wallflowers Fragrance Plug - Home Fragrance 1037181 - Bath & Body Works
I want this plug-in so badly! It's a night-light too! I have the "Leaves" scent... I think I "need" it :)

This candleholder is waiting on me to put a candle in it.
What's your favorite Fall scent?  I am open to suggestions :)

8. What I'm Reading/Watching

I am reading a LOT of textbooks...Fluency disorders, Articulation, Phonology, etc. Man, I miss the fun reads. 
I am watching parenthood on netflix & just got to Season 2. 

9. What I'm listening to

I am listening to the radio & episodes of parenthood, while I work on schoolwork & blogging :) 
      Joel: Why do we still have a home phone. The only people who still have our number are telemarketers.  Julia: And my parents.  Joel: Exactly.

10. What I'm Wearing

I have been SO HOT all summer, and so the air conditioned clinic feels like Antarctica to me. So I have already broken in my jeans & sweaters (only adding to my dreams of Fall) 
& I found an Olive Vest! Target is my favorite!
It's the Grad Life,

My first day of Grad School Outfit :) 

11. What I'm doing this weekend

This weekend, I am going to catch up on schoolwork & get my therapy plans together. On Friday, I hope to see Zack's game!
They have a big rivalry game this week, I'm hoping we come out 2-0!

12. What I'm looking forward to next month

I am looking forward to getting in a routine. I like having a schedule.
I am also excited about College Football starting back. Zack & I are planning a few games to go watch :) 

13. What else new: 

I got all settled into my new apartment! 
I am excited about the next 2 years with my cohort & my roommate :)

Bonus: What's your back to School traditions?

My favorite back to school traditions are when I get to go school supply shopping :) I might be a nerd, but I love the feeling of how fresh & clean everything is.
Also, since I have started college, my mom makes my favorite meal before I head back to school. 
I always have roast, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, green beans & dessert :) 

Thank you ladies for such a fun post idea!
& Thanks for reading "What's up" in my life!
Have a great week! :) 


  1. Thoughts & prayers as you say goodbye to your sweet grandpa today!

  2. We've been watching Friday Night Lights and you talking about high school football just makes me miss watching it!!! And that Show and Tell post about high school isn't helping either! When did we become adults? I have an owl scent plug in from BBW, I need a new scent for it for this fall!


Thanks for reading, I would love for you to share your thoughts :)
