What’s Up Wednesday?

Happy Wednesday!  Today is the last Wednesday of August!  WHAT?!?!?!  My birthday is TOMORROW too!  My mom and I share the same birthday and although this birthday is going to be a sad one for us without dad, we are going to make the best of it!  I had the students guess my age the other day~ their responses were hilarious!  I had guesses all the way from 44 to 25!  LOL

Today I am linking up with ShayMel, and Sheaffer and sharing with you my monthly What’s Up Wednesday post.

What I’m reminiscing about:  

In general, I’ve been reminiscing about my life a lot lately.  With a birthday tomorrow, I always reflect back on the previous year and remember all the highs and lows of the year.  Losing a dad at 32 years old is definitely a low point, but there were also a few good things that happened to me this year.  I never want to become satisfied with where I’m at and always want to strive to do bigger and better things.  I’m also reminiscing about the fun birthday parties my sister throws for me, my mom, and my cousin Haley.

What I’m loving:

Being back into the school routine!  I don’t know about you, but I do so much better with a routine.  I get more accomplished and am more focused!  So, I’m glad to be back into the school routine.

What we’ve been up to:

School, homework, playing outside as much as we can, and starting volleyball are all keeping us really busy right now.

What I’m dreading:

Nothing at this moment

What I’m working on:

Homework, homework, homework…. My class right now for my Master’s degree is about special education.  This is not my forte, so I’m having a little trouble with some of the assignments!  Because of this, the assignments are taking more time and just more stressful for me.

What I’m excited about:

My birthday is tomorrow!  Can you tell I love birthdays?!!?!?

What I’m watching/reading:

America’s Got Talent has been our favorite this month at our house.  Kechi is an amazing singer and one of our favorite contestants. Her story is so inspiring!

What I’m listening to:

I love Carrie Underwood.  I don’t know why, but I’ve been on a kick lately of listening to all of her songs.  My favorite is of her and Vince Gill singing How Great Thou Art together at the CMA awards a few years ago.  Listen to it here.  It makes me cry every time I hear it!

What I’m wearing:

I am loving all my new dresses from Arrow Boutique!  I wore a new one yesterday that was comfy and simple.  Exactly my style.

What I’m doing this weekend:

My family and my sister’s family are all going to Branson for the long weekend!  We are all camping in their new camper on Lake Taneycomo.  I am so excited!  Chris and Matt plan to fish the whole weekend and Julie and I plan to shop and have fun with the kids.  My mom and Nini are going to join us for a day and we all plan to catch a show together.  I can’t wait!

What I’m looking forward to next month:  

September is always a busy month for us with Chris coaching football and both girls playing volleyball, so it goes by in a whirlwind.  The one thing I am looking forward to next month is that my oldest nephew, Tyler, turns 13!  I can’t believe he is going to be a teenager.

Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!
