What's Up Wednesday

Thank you to all my friends and family who reached out to make sure we are ok.  We are safe and dry here in Dallas, but the devastation in Houston is unbelievable.  If you feel so inclined and would like to help out, please consider one of the following:

Houston Food Bank
Houston SPCA
Salvation Army
Houston Flood Relief Fund

Watching the news is heartbreaking - if you are in a position to help or donate, please consider doing so.

On to our scheduled posting...

Holy cow we are at September's door people.  I'm going to be honest, I'm freaking out a little about the wedding.  We are just under 2 months away and I still have some details to work out #hairandmakeup

Here's what we've been up to in August!

What We're Eating This Week

Last week I wrote about being vegan. I have decided to try and eliminate meat, most dairy, and eggs, etc. from my diet. So far, so good.  I was never a huge meat eater anyways, but Phillip and I sat down and talked about it and we have been looking at ways to make our meals in ways that it's easy to either add meat for him or swap out meat for beans or something instead.  With that in mind, here is our menu for this week:

Sunday: Eggplant Rollatini with Ricotta and Spinach
Monday: Leftover Eggplant Rollatini
Tuesday: Chicken Shawarma Bowls (being a bowl, it's easy to just not have chicken on mine and have more chickpeas)
Wednesday: Carne Asada Bowls (again, leaving the chicken off mine and adding more beans)
Thursday: Cauliflower Pizza with vegan cheese on my half and mozzarella and turkey meatballs on his
Friday: Veggie Burgers and Green Beans
Saturday: Not sure yet...

What I'm Reminiscing About

Disney!  This time last year we were gearing up for our big trip.

We had fun on date night in Epcot

Phillip made some new friends

And we got to experience all the fun with this little miss!

What I'm Loving

Our new garage doors!  Seriously, I am loving all of the amazing progress on our house.

What We've Been Up To

The blog got a makeover!  I am loving the new design.  I had to get into the swing of using a different platform, but I am so so happy with how it all turned out.

New school year means it's time for a new planner and I am LOVING my Simplified Planner.  Emily Ley has a winning product here.

I scoured IKEA for ideas for my new office in the new house and I am definitely planning on this piece.

Pure Barre released a new program - Pure Barre Empower and I can tell you I am here for it!  I love it.  I still love my classic barre classes, but I am never one to back down from a challenge and Empower has it.

So there were plenty of barre classes this past month and word on the street is that we're doing another challenge soon and y'all know how I feel about a challenge #cantsayno

We had an amazing dinner at Meddleome Moth.  I recapped that earlier this week.

What I'm Dreading

Nothing!  I'm getting MARRIED in less than 60 days, our honeymoon is booked, my family is coming to town, and I am marrying the love of my life?  Ask me in two months when I am staring down the prospect of packing up the apartment and moving...

What I'm Working on

I've got some Stella & Dot stuff in the works (and some new releases coming).  There is an amazing Labor Day sale right now.  Here are some of my favorites.

If you see something you like - grab it!  Things are selling out quickly.  If you have questions, or would like to order, shoot me an email!

What I'm Excited About

Um, Hawaii???  Two months and we will be on sandy beaches, exploring volcanoes, and relaxing, relaxing, relaxing.

What I'm Watching/Reading

Like the rest of the country, we just finished Game of Thrones, and all I can say is Whoa.  I got through a few books this month too, most of which I would recommend (skip babyland).

What I'm Listening To

Now that football season is looming, I've been listening to more sports radio in the morning and podcasts while I'm working.  For sports radio I always tune in to Mike & Mike.  Current podcast favorites: Sorta Awesome, The Popcast, How I Built This, Whys Advice with FatDag, Food Stuff, and 99% Invisible.

What I'm Wearing

What I'm Doing This Weekend

We don't really have anything on the agenda for this weekend.  We will definitely swing by the house and check on progress and I'd like to maybe go walking at White Rock Lake if the weather is nice.  Phillip will probably go to the driving range while I hit up my usual Weight Watchers meeting.

What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month

Final wedding details!  More progress on the house!  Final honeymoon planning!  So much going on!

What Else Is New

Not much...but plenty of ongoing stuff to be excited about.  I can't wait to see what September holds!
