What's up Wednesday

Linking up with the ladies for the end of month fun!
What we're eating this week...
I've been addicted to Edamame this week.
Sam's Club had individual bags in their freezer section & I think I've made a bag every day this week. 
What I'm reminiscing about...
How my nieces can be starting middle school today...
I remember holding them right when they were born... & now swimming in the big pond.  Where does the time go?
What I'm loving...
I always used Pandora at work or at home but just finally uploaded the app to my phone & have used it while running lately.
I wont do it all the time because I don't want to eat up my 4G - or whatever it is what I'm limited on - but it is nice to put it on the workout channel & have some new beats in my ears.
What we've been up to...
working... working... more working... & a little bit of extra doses of working...
Oh. And desperately needing a vacation.
What I'm dreading...
School starts here today.  & with that, comes school buses & a WHOLE lot of extra cars on an already shut down road.  Traffic is already miserable enough but I'm so dreading all the extra.  I'm just wanting to pack my car with snacks, a cooler, a few books. I have a feeling I'll be spending WAY too much time in there.
What I'm working on...
Laundry... always laundry
What I'm excited about...
Merge Camp!
We're getting ready to hang out with 21 kids at our youth ministry's camp.  This will be the 3rd year of it & the kids look so forward to it. & while its exhausting & I can sleep for 24 hours straight afterwards, its always fun to hang out with the kids, talk with them, see them in a fun environment & have some great talks about Jesus.
What I'm watching/reading...
Just started this book & already wanting every single person I know to read it.
It's funny but informative & I'm loving this man's journey!
What I'm listening to...
I'm all about the podcasts right now
& this is what I'm listening to right now
.. his messages on John the Baptizer...
What I'm wearing...


I honestly wear flip flops every day from the moment its above 60 degrees until there is snow on the ground
What I'm doing this weekend...
I actually have a slow weekend planned.
Gotta get in my run & then I'm meeting with my next bride whose wedding is in a few weeks & getting all the final information.  Time to write up her wedding day schedule.
Exciting stuff!
What I'm looking forward to next month...
Women of Faith!!!!
Going with some of my favorite girlfriends & just looking forward to worshipping with a few thousand other ladies!
What else is new...
Babies everywhere!
Every year in my photography - there seems to be a trend.  Seniors - weddings - engagements.  This year? It's all about babies & maternity sessions.
& so far, the girl count is winning in the baby race. 
Bonus:  What will you miss most about summer?
Late night light skies! 
I can already see the time change.  My car lights stayed on when I pulled out of the garage this week & it made me want to tear up a little.  It's also totally dark at 9pm now. I like when its still light up to 9:30.  When that sun starts setting earlier & earlier - I get more & more depressed.
Grab a question & answer it... or join the link up & answer them all
Just let me know if you do so I can come see your answer


  1. I've been loving the edamame as well. Our local grocery store has them frozen and already shelled, so they're so easy to make and eat. I've been throwing them on top of salads for some protein.

  2. It seems too early for school to be starting!! Yum to the edamame and yay for a slow weekend ahead!

  3. I used to love edamame. Until I developed a soy allergy. it's a joy, let me tell you. BTW, i think your top is super cute!

  4. That book sounds interesting. I've never tasted edamame. A girl here at work eats it raw. Have fun wedding planning this weekend.

  5. I listen to pandora all the time at work - it's the best to help me zone out and do work lol! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  6. Yum, I love edamame! I noticed last night that it's getting darker earlier and I was so sad about it! You reminded me I probably need to check in with my photographer and also work on my list of photos that must be taken...

  7. I'm with you on the earlier sunset. What I hate most about winter is the cold and the fact that it's dark before I even start thinking about dinner. :-(

  8. I just love your down to earth,fun, honest posts!!
    Love flip flops! I am ready to hit some store for year end sales to stock up!
    I am with you on the LAUNDRY..... a never ending chore!
    Summer is flown by and I am thankful we have a few more weeks before school starts here.
    Just returned from Camp Sonseeker - our church's children's camp! WHEW!! What a blessing!
    I sure hope and pray that Merge is the same for you.
    Today is the day that we find out what grandblessing #3 will be!! (#teampink)
