What's Up Wednesday- August 2020

Hello, friends!! I have been neglecting this little space of mine quite a bit as we focus on other spaces... more about that below :-). Here's what's been going on in our neck of the woods.

, What’s Up Wednesday {04.29.20}

What we're eating this week:

Eating healthy-ish... 

Monday: basil chicken and roasted cauliflower

Tuesday: salad and fish for a socially distant picnic with some friends.

Wednesday: miso-glazed black cod and cauliflower rice

Thursday: veggie burgers maybe? We try to do meatless....

Friday: maybe some takeout or some sort of finger food Friday. 

The weekend is too far out to make plans ha!

What I'm reminiscing about:

Two weeks ago we visited friends of ours at their beautiful weekend home in Sarnia. We had such a great time with wonderful conversations, delicious food, lots of walks, hot tub and beach time. 

What I'm dreading:

I don't know what it's going to be like for masks all day for my kiddos. I understand the necessity but boy do I feel for them

What I'm loving:

My kids got a hamster this last weekend and I'm really loving all the research and budgeting C did before we bought it. And I was all ready to buy it when we bought everything else and she was like no, we need to prep everything before we bring it home. It's a she and her name is Mochi. D is outnumbered still!

What we've been up to

So many summer walks

And so many beautiful gardens in our hood!

What I'm working on

Sorting out our backyard. We got a retractable awning put in, got some lovely new furniture  and we are also looking at other solutions for shade including planting some mature trees.... 

We are loving these new Adirondack chairs in these fun colours 

What I'm excited about

I think it will be good for the kiddos to go to school. Usually, I am sad at the end of their summer vacay but I think they are ready after 6 months at home.

What I'm watching/reading

We are watching Modern Family Season 1 as a family (and quickly fast-forwarding through a few risque parts!)

I've read so much lately....just finished In Five Years by Rebecca Serle in less than 24 hours. A beautiful, poignant, captivating read. 

What I'm listening to:

My kids.. they sing, giggle, chat, bicker and laugh.. and I know a summer like this will never come again. 

What I'm wearing:

Lots of loose summer dresses! 

What I'm doing this weekend

A hike with some family friends most likely and dinner with our neighbours. 

What else is new:

My kids were so happy with life when my mom sent a little Starbucks gift card for them-- cake pops and donuts for the win!!

This little lady's bun game is on point.

And happy #14 to D and me.... we sneaked out for a little dinner at a new joint...

Have a great week, friends!

  1. Can I ask where you found Modern Family season 1? I've been wanting to watch that show but Hulu only has the latest season and I want to start at the beginning. Those beach photos look amazing.

  2. Sounds like you've been having fun! Seeing friends is great. Glad the kids get to go back to school and hope it will go well!

  3. Those pictures from the lake are unreal - so gorgeous! Sending all the hugs and well wishes as the girls head back to school <3

  4. I'm catching up on my What's Up Wednesday posts a little late :) I'm so excited the kids are going back to school. I know the mask wearing will be different but I keep reminding myself that at least they're all going through it together.

    I love those Adirondack chairs. We want to build a deck eventually and I think Adirondack chairs will go on the list then. I just LOVE them!


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
