What's Up Wednesday

Hi!  Happy Wednesday Friends =)  I'm linking up with the fabulous Mel, Shaeffer and Shay for, What's up Wednesday =)


School starts tomorrow here, and I really really need to get into a routine with dinners around here.  I feel like this is always an issue! haha  Especially now that fall sports will be starting, we are going to be busy a lot.  Crock pot meals are going to be a lifesaver for sure =)

Summer.  Even though we are still experiencing "summer" like weather, and it's technically still summer...I am already missing our lazy summer days. 


Chilly fall days will soon be among us!
 
 Any day that I am off from work!  Work has been crazy this summer.  Lots of being forced into work on my days off.  So any day that I have a day off...I'M LOVING!! =)

Well, work.  Ha!  I participated in a filming for a local TV show here the other day for work.  I didn't have anywhere for Emma to go that day, so she tagged along with me.  






We filmed in locations all around our city, and then we ended with pizza at UNO.  Emma was in heaven because there is a TV show that airs on Animal Planet that is called Northwoods Law.  It is all about Maine Game Wardens, and one of the stars from that show was there.  Emma was so excited because she sat with him at lunch.  


I asked her if she wanted her picture taken with him and she got all embarrassed and said no.  So I snuck this picture ;)

Getting back into the school routine.  I so so so enjoy our lazy summer days and it's going to be so hard getting up again and out the door for school for Emma.   

The final details of Emma's birthday party.  It's the first year we are doing her party somewhere other than our house.  She wanted a bowling party!! =)



This.





Can't wait!!


I'm not currently reading anything, but I am watching this!


I may have mentioned it once or twice or maybe three times, but the show is amazing =)

We plan on spending Saturday at camp, and then Sunday we are heading to a concert.





Rascall Flatts, Kelsea Ballerini and Chris Lane.  Should be a fun time =)

 Emma turning 10 years old!!  Crazy how time goes by so fast!  Apple picking.  And getting ready for some fall fun =)


I hope you all have a GREAT Wednesday!!!

Hello Monday

Hi!  And Hello Monday!  =)  This is our last Monday of summer vacation.  Thursday Emma starts 5th grade.  5th!  Seriously, where did all these years go?!  I can't even think about this being her last year of Elementary school...so let's move on for now! ha! =)  Link up your Monday posts below =)

Don't forget to grab the new graphic =)

We had a crazy busy weekend.  The weekends I work it's always hectic.  Getting the girls picked up around 5pm, getting dinner, and then bedtime routine.  There isn't too much time for play mixed in there on these weekends.  Friday evening we did make it to the park for a bit.  But oh my gosh it was so hot!  Trust me, I would take hot weather over cold any day, but we didn't stay too long because it was really humid. 







Emma was rocking the Surf Style t-shirt for sure!  My brother in law bought it for her and she is in LOVE with this shirt!  Brings back lots of memories from the 90's for me =)

The rest of the weekend was pretty blah.  We didn't do a whole lot in the evening on Saturday.  Yesterday the girls went to camp for the day and I headed there when I got out of work.  It's a bit of a drive there, and we got home pretty late last night.  

The sunrise yesterday morning was absolutely beautiful.  If you know me, then you know I am a huge sucker for sunrises and sunsets.  





The sky looked like it was on fire behind me.  Beautiful!  

I hope you all had a great weekend!!!  Feel free to link up below =)

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday Friends!! The weekend is almost upon us!

As always I'm Linking up with Narci, Andrea and Erika =)

It's so funny how you can have 2 kids, and they are completely different.  Emma and Alyx are like night and day.  Emma has always been quiet and won't take anything without asking first.  And then there is Alyx.  She's not quiet.  And she doesn't tend to ask when she wants something, she just gets it.  So while I was in the shower yesterday she helped herself to a lollipop, or two, or three, or four....or well how about 9!


I laughed but also told her that she needs to ask before getting into them.  I was certain she understood what I was saying...and then this happened after dinner last night...


I hid them, and she found them!  Apparently my hiding spot wasn't good enough ;) 

Emma went to my parents house on Monday morning, and Wednesday morning she and my mom left for southern Maine to spend the night and go school shopping.  They also did some sightseeing.


She looks sooo grown up here.  They visited a couple of lighthouses, and then they went to the Garmin store.  Home of the worlds largest Globe.


See Emma there?  She looks pretty tiny compared to that globe! 

I came up with a new Graphic for my Hello Monday linkup.  Make sure you grab it =)


Alyx and I enjoyed running errands on Wednesday, but we definitely missed Emma!






I hope you all have a great Friday!  And an amazing weekend!!
