Today Jen is talking about what is up with her lately. Enjoy!
What we’re eating this week:
I have no idea. I have been beyond terrible about meal planning. Most nights we wing it. Which means it is either: taco’s, breakfast for dinner, grilling or pizza. I really could use a personal chef.
What I’m Reminiscing About:
Hanging out with my friends and family during the Holiday week/my birthday week last week.
What I’m Loving:
My new Apple iWatch. I got it for my birthday and I am loving it. I was on the fence about getting one for awhile and everyone who had one convinced me to get one. I am so glad they did! Not only does it give me a kick in the pants for fitness but it also is so helpful for letting me know when I get texts or calls. When my phone is in my purse or I am running around with the kids this is a super helpful feature. One of my favorite features since I sit at a desk all day is that it alerts me when I have been sitting 50 minutes and should get up and move around. Game changer. I have even gone swimming with it at our local pool a few times and it works great.
What We’ve Been Up To:
Summer camp, going to the park, swimming, eating ice cream and going to bed past our bedtime
What I’m Dreading:
The end of summer. Depressing I know, but I feel like we have been having so much fun this summer I don’t want it to end.
What I’m Working On:
A packing list for our next vacation. I have to make sure I bring the right clothes for me and the kids.
What I’m Excited About:
Going on vacation next week. We are leaving for Lake Tahoe on a family trip. We have never been and are super excited. If anyone has tips or spots they recommend let me know. We plan on doing a river raft ride, kayaking, hiking and renting a boat while we are there.
What I’m watching/reading:
Watching: Anything on Bravo but really loving Southern Charm. Cam is my absolute favorite and the comments she gives. #amazing.
Reading: The President is Missing by James Patterson. I am almost done and so far it is a really good read. For those of you who may not be a fan of Bill Clinton I wouldn’t discount the book because he helped co-write.
What I’m Listening To:
Podcasts: I need more suggestions but my favorite lately is Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard
Maroon 5: Girl Like You. This song is on repeat in my head. And I am not complaining
What I’m Wearing:
Workout clothes, swimsuits, flip flops. I only need to wear “real” clothes one day a week (I work from home 4 days a week). So most likely when you see me I am rocking comfy clothes. Although this past weekend I went to my cousin’s wedding and my dress was from Rent the Runway. I have been 2/2 with Rent the Runway and am really liking the results.
What I’m Doing This Weekend:
Hanging out at the pool/park. Dinner at one of our favorite spots, Cooper’s Hawk and then hanging out with some friends. Perfect summer weekend.
What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month:
Well next month I will have a 1st grader and Pre-K. So as much as I am looking forward to school starting I am sad that the kids are getting so big!!
