Royally Waiting: What's Up Edition

It's Wednesday which means Shelly, Holly and I are giving you a peek into our week. We so hope you'll join us and let us know what it is you are playing/watching/wearing/eating/ and waiting on. Since it's the last week of the month, I'm also linking up with Mel, Shay, and Sheaffer and using their prompts for What's Up Wednesday!

What we're eating...

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I find that if I eat a healthy breakfast, I'm more committed to making smart choices all day. My current favorite combo is bell peppers, sweet potatoes and chicken sausage cooked in Kerry Gold butter with a fried egg on top and a dash of Frank's Hot Sauce.

It's also pretty taste sans egg + avocado.

We made burgers last week and I decided to forgo the bun and make a stuffed sweet potato topped off with Tessamae's Creamy Ranch.


What I'm reminiscing about...

Twenty years ago I graduated from high school - still feels like yesterday. Growing up seemed to take forever and here we are - two decades from those kids we were running from. We hit the jackpot with childhoods. Small town fun. Friday Night Lights. Making mistakes that we could fix. Grabbing Jays Burritos during class. Heading to Rocket on Fridays. Winning everything. Losing a little too. Big dreams of far away places and waiting to discover what was yet to come.

The easiness of those days was taken for granted and I'm still mourning the ones we lost too soon and so grateful for the ones that taught us well beyond the classroom.

Robinson will always be home and I will always be grateful for the town that built me.

Our 20 year reunion is next weekend and I can't wait to see everyone!

What I'm loving/wearing...

I **may** have mentioned that I am a JCPenney girl through and through and once again, I hit the jackpot! I am LOVING the new dresses that I snagged with my momma (thanks, mom!)

I mean, how cute is this little floral number?

And y'all - they were SIXTEEN DOLLARS!!!

(I may need this one in black and red!)

And those are just regular ol links because I love ya.

What we've been up to...

Well, we celebrated the last day of school!

And got our summer trims in! This was Landry's first time at a salon - poor third kid. Rad and Emmy's visit's were well documented. Emersyn had a whole "special girl day" with lunch and pedicures.

Landry got a "holy cow - this is your first hair cut at a salon - I need to take a picture!"

She DID get to mark the occasion with the besties!

We went in age order so by the time we got to Millie and Landry we were sick of waiting and respectfully requested that they NOT get their hair curled.

Radley was the champ that day, so we took them all for some ice cream to celebrate. Our stylist moved to Brenham so I see lots of fun trips in our future!

And if that wasn't exciting enough - Emersyn lost another tooth! Caro pulled it out for her and everyone was so excited!

What I'm dreading...

Nothing, really.

What I'm working on...

My summer to do list... which once again includes "putting pictures in albums"... stay tuned!

What I'm excited about...

My "summer to do", Emmy's birthday and my high school reunion!

What I'm watching/reading...

Y'all. Ryan made me watch this.

Two minutes in I realized that it is LOOSELY based on this. 

I may need to admit that I'm already hooked. Lord help me.

What I'm doing this weekend...

OMGoodness. Emersyn's birthday is coming up and she has requested a slumber party so Friday night I get to hang with SIX tiny girls and I couldn't be more excited, scared, nervous, anxious, thrilled.... GAH... we are going to have a blast!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you'll link up with us!
