What's Up Wednesday - August 2018

Well hello there!! It's the last week of my kids being home from school! I'm always sad at the end of the summer vacation for kids-- when I was a kid obvi, but even as an adult without kids, I loved when kids were off school. To me, everyone is in a better mood, there's less routine and so many different adventures... and now with my kids, I miss their company when they go back to school!

What we're eating this week?
Monday: turkey burgers
Tuesday: salads and sandwiches at a friend's house
Wednesday: I'm going to try out my new instant pot!!! I'm thinking a roasted chicken or something with some cauliflower potato salad
Thursday: thai tofu salad most likely.
Friday: dinner at a friend's house
Saturday: lunch and dinner at our framily's house! 

Low carb and low sugar with some little treats thrown in.

What I'm reminiscing about
This summer has flown by with lots of fun... all those little moments have been awesome!

What I'm loving
Primal Pit Paste. I've been a natural deodorant convert for many years now but this stuff works better than the rest. I'm also using the charcoal magnesium at night to 'detox'

What we've been up to…
This week is a quieter one since the girls are all wrapped up with their camps. We still have some swimming lessons,  they are doing some workbooks and getting ready for school. 

We did manage to squeeze a couple trips to the market as well.

What I'm dreading…
Tuesday when school starts again! 

What I'm working on
We are also in the process of switching C to her own room and making A's room her own. Lots of decluttering and organising in the works! I feel 10 pound lighter already but boy do we still have a lot to do.

What I'm excited about…
I just booked my ticket to go to a family wedding in October... so much fun!

What I'm watching/reading…
The Fosters and... Bachelor in Paradise-- don't judge me more than I judge myself.

Lots of books on the go!

What I'm listening to..
not a whole lot except some podcasts here and there

What I'm wearing…
Summer dresses! It's been hot and I've been loving every single minute of it! 

What I'm doing this weekend…
FInger Food Friday with some friends and a party on Saturday at our framily's house. Sunday is low key with some errands and some family time. Monday, we have our back to school dinner!

What I'm looking forward to next month..
The start of working out in the gym again. My youtube workouts are good to switch it up but I miss the routine of my classes.
Also, some more neighbourhood happy hours, some more sunshine and other fun! 

What else is new?
I took the kids to the trampoline park and it was a huge hit!

Happy hump day!

  1. Hope you soak up these last few days and the long weekend before school starts! The girls have grown up so much this year! Good luck with your instant pot...I've been killing it with mine the past two weeks.

  2. My kids just went to that same trampoline park here. Good luck with the start of school!

  3. I'm kinda craving that quiet that comes with back to school but I think I'll miss them too.

  4. Hope Tuesday is a great day! You have had such a fun summer. I especially loved your trip to Greece. Beautiful!

  5. St Jacob farmers market is the best. You can get every nutritional and healthy stuff there
    The kids are having so much fun


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
