1. What we are eating this week
Monday: Mix & Match Mama's Spinach and Swiss Meatballs over quinoa
Tuesday: Grilled Steak & Chicken kabobs (recipe from simply scratch)
Wednesday: Leftovers (soccer practice!)
Thursday: Must-go (leftovers...again....gasp!) We are headed out of town Friday so everything Must Go! This is what my Yiayia always called leftovers and it kinda stuck.
Friday: Out of town
2. What I'm Reminiscing about
The kiddos first day's of pre-school!
I guess I didn't take a picture of him standing next to his
3. What I'm loving
This is so random but I am so happy with my food service foil sheets that I got at Costco. Ha! I am a huge dork but it really makes grabbing foil so much easier! It's like a box of kleenex, but it's 12x12 foil sheets. I always line my baking sheets and or wrap things to go quickly...and it just makes it that much more quick. Plus I hate those serrated edges on the regular foil boxes!
And on a much more 'cool mom' note, I am loving my new Lululemon short sleeve top - it's the perfect cover up for the hot weather. Since I typically work out 4-5 times a week I do end up in my workout clothes more often than I would like during the day. I always feel kind of naked when I just have my workout top on so I love that I can throw this on over. It's quick, cute and breezy. lol!

4. What we've been up to
The first half of August I was consumed by party prep for the Pirates and Mermaids party. The second half has been focusing on going back to school - being in school - and squeezing in more summer fun with the littles before they go back!
5. What I'm dreading
Soccer practice. I'm such a bad soccer mom but I am so not a fan of soccer practice. It's always right smack in the middle of dinner time, it's always hot, and I am always chasing Hayden around because she doesn't like to sit still. This season the boys both have practice on the same night, at the same time....and not so much at the same field. As far as our area goes, they are complete opposite sides of the neighborhood so it is not possible to go to both - darn. lol. Carpool :)
On the other hand...look how excited Grayson (and Hayden) are for soccer practice!
6. What I'm working on
House stuff (Purging, organizing, simplifying)
Speakeasy Party (Stonewall Party I am co-hosting with some fun ladies!)
7. What I'm excited about
We have a lot of fun stuff planned for September - excited for a fun month!
8. What I'm watching/reading
Bachelor in Paradise. of course.
We are probably half-way through the season and my feelings on it are pretty neutral. I enjoy watching it, but I am not obsessed. lol.
I have hear The Night Of is pretty great so I am excited to start that HBO mini series next.
And onto reading....
I just ordered two new books:
I'll let ya know what I think!
9. What I'm listening to
I downloaded the Audible app from amazon and am excited to try some books on tape! I have heard from a handful of mom's that their kids love listening to stories on tape so we are going to try one on our way down to Austin.
I downloaded Roald Dahls Big Friendly Giant so I am hoping it holds the kids interest!
10. What I'm wearing
Well, just like everyone else here in Dallas I am ready for some fall weather. I realize that probably won't get here for another month or so, so I guess not much will change.
11. What I'm doing this weekend
Grayson's 4th birthday! We will be down in Austin at Lost Pines with friends so it will be a great way to celebrate!
12. What I'm looking forward to next month
- Football season starting. Not that I am a huge football fan but I love having the games on and hanging with friends.
- Little's starting school. This year Grayson will have Ms Karen and Ms Liz, the same teachers that Ryan had! We loved them so I am thrilled that Grayson is in their class.
- Speakeasy Party. I am hosting a Speakeasy party with a bunch of Stonewall mommies.
- Carrie Underwood concert!
That's all I got! Happy Wednesday!
