I totally cannot believe it's already time to link up with Mel, Shay and Sheaffer for another WUW (What's Up Wednesday). This month has gone screaming by in ways and in other ways it's been a super long month. I mean, I can't believe it was just last month we took Katie to school. It truly feels like she's been gone for months already.
So in case you are wondering, here's "What's Up" with us.
Here's what we'll be covering.
WHAT WE'RE EATING THIS WEEK...
Monday night I decided to try a "low carb" recipe from Pinterest.

I added a salad of Romaine lettuce, Trader Joe's Gorgonzola (my fav) and Bolthouse Farm Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing.
We liked the whole dinner and give it 2 thumbs up.
Last night I went out with a couple of new friends to a fun little event that was a "Taste and Stroll" in a quaint downtown area near our home so no cooking for me.
As for the rest of the week, your guess is as good as mine. I used to be really good at planning menus for the weeks when my kids were younger, but somehow over the years I've become more of a fly by the seat of my pants kind of cook.
WHAT I'M REMINISCING ABOUT...
It seems as though I'm reminded through pictures I see of Katie at school about my time there and all the special friendships I made. Sometimes I'd really love to be able to go back for a day and just relive some of those fun times.
WHAT I'M LOVING...
Honestly, I'm loving that my Rodan + Fields business has had the best month ever.
Thank you so much to all of my customers and helping me to feel and be successful.
And I'm just going to throw this out there one more time in case you've previously missed it. There are 3 more days (counting today) to take advantage of this AWESOME special corporate has been running.
Below are some pictures of great results.
Let's see your "Before and After". Try them and fall in love with these products for yourself.
Just look at the difference in the texture of her skin...AMAZING!!!
If you are interested in trying this for yourself there is no better time than during this special.

WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO...
This month we took a quick trip to Oklahoma to visit Kent's parents.
We took them to Starbuck's for the FIRST TIME IN THEIR LIVES???
Yes, you read that right. ;)
WHAT I'M DREADING...
More Presidential Debates...Need I say more?
WHAT I'M WORKING ON...
Over the weekend I painted our coffee table to go with our new sofa that was delivered Saturday. WOW!!! What a HUGE difference it makes it the feeling of the room.
I'm leaving the things that normally sit on the table off for about a week to give the wax time to cure.
WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT...
I'm on the verge of hitting 20,000 pageviews on my blog. Now to some people that is no big deal, but I'm majorly excited to hit this milestone. Thank you for taking time out of your day to read it and see what's going on in my little space.
WHAT I'M WATCHING/READING...
This one is easy. I did a blog post Monday on Entertainment which covered both of these topics. You can read it HERE
WHAT I'M LISTENING TO...
Literally I'm listening to the quiet hum of the dishwasher but I also have been playing a few songs I downloaded from iTunes on repeat.

I dare you to watch it or listen to it and tell me it's not a happy song.
Funny story...we're listening to it in the car and Kent tells me in his mind he's "doing the worm".
This is another one I'm loving listening to. Click HERE to watch video.
WHAT I'M WEARING...
It's remaining HOT here in Northern California so summer clothes are pretty much still in full rotation...it's supposed to cool down this weekend, so maybe I'll get to break out a sweater.
WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEKEND...
That's a good question! We have no plans at the moment, so we'll just have to see what we come up with.
WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH...
We are going to Nashville to visit these two!
This mama's heart is ready!
And then as long as I'm on that side of the country I decided it would be a great opportunity to hop on over to visit my parents.
WHAT ELSE IS NEW...
I can't think of anything. We are just going along and doing what we do. That's the thing about our now empty nest. I don't have funny stories like mama's with funny little kids at home. But that's okay, because we go out and do whatever we want, whenever we want. So I'd just say embrace the stage of life while they're little and embrace the stages that come as they grow.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FALL RECIPE...
I'm a big ol' sucker for recipes that have PUMPKIN in them for fall.
One of my favorites is this Double Chocolate Pumpkin Cake I like to pass off as a breakfast bread ;)
I got the recipe from...you guessed it Pinterest and I'm going to do a post about it next week.
Whew, that's a lot of information.
Happy hump day friends!
