What's Hap-"Pinning" Wednesday {#58}

It's time for another edition of WHW, where you can share what's happening with you, stuff you're pinning, recipes...anything!

Reading ...
Lots of stuff, although now that I'm back at work, my days of being able to read for hours on end are over. Boo hiss! Right now I'm reading a book my mom gave to me called Stepdog by Nicole Galland. I'm only about a quarter of the way in and so far it's pretty good. Check out my post from yesterday for some of the other books that I've been reading!

Watching ...
All the Real Housewives (no surprise there), Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry (anyone else?? He's incredible and has me tearing up almost every episode), Teen Mom OG--I used to like Maci the best, but I'm sorry if you get pregnant three times "by accident" then you obviously haven't learned anything about what this show is supposed to be preaching. And lastly, Married At First Sight which I think has been the most disappointing and boring season yet. And I think the experts suck.

Eating....
Pirate's Booty. The other weekend (not this past one, but the one before) I picked up a Costco sized bag of Pirate's Booty, and I'm ashamed to admit that there was only about a 1/4 of it left by this past weekend. That stuff is like crack! #givemethebooty

Looking forward to ... 
Our friend's wedding this weekend. It's on a Sunday which is a bit of a pain (and out of town) but it's sure to be a LOT of fun! I'm pretty sure we're gonna need a weekend following this weekend of festivities and friends!

Wishing...
my friend Kelly a successful first day of Chemo today! This girl has been a true superhero to me since finding out she had breast cancer at the end of the school year. She has had nothing but the best, most positive attitude, and I know she is going to rock this too! On Monday, a bunch of us got together and surprised her at a local wine bar, wearing pink (well almost all of us) as a Chemo Kickoff to show our love and support for her. I think she was surprised as she teared up immediately upon seeing us :) Sending so much love to you, Kelly!
Enjoying ...
the last bits of watermelon season. Since we got a big guy locally the other weekend, I've been having a mid-morning snack of watermelon every day and I'm loving it!

Drinking...
Cucumber and lemon water that we've been making in our infuser pitcher. SO delicious and refreshing and better than just plain lemon water.

Loving....
working with Kindergarten students. First of all, they are SO tiny at the start of the year. And boy are they funny, rambunctious, and full of giggles! 

Wanting ... 

to have a week without parent meetings. I'll have at least 4 this week. It's the first FULL week of school and by the end of this week, I'll have had 5 meetings so far this school year, in 9 days. #justletmeseethekids

Wearing ...
dresses and anything else that keeps me cool since we're climbing back into the 90s this week! At least Sunday and Monday were less hot, and not humid, but I could really do with some consistent 80 degree, no humidity days.

Grateful For...
Comfy clothes, glasses and being able to relax and veg out at the end of a work day. 

Now it's your turn to link up with Jessi and I and share what's hap-"pinning" with you!

  2. Good luck to your friend! How sweet of you guys to surprise her like that! Teen Mom OG is filling up my DVR - I need to start watching those. And give me all the Housewives!

  3. You look adorable in all these dresses! I think if I was a teacher loving on all those little kindergarten kids would be the best but challenging for sure. Prayers for your friend!

  5. So true about Maci from Teen Mom! It irritates me that she would speak at seminars about safe sex, and then she gets pregnant twice "by accident". Clearly she wasn't practicing what she preaches... also I find it strange that she was like 5 months along when she found out she was pregnant.. how is that possible? Hope she wasn't drinking alcohol, coffee or eating sushi during that time :(

  6. Seriously -- the hollywood medium episode with Carol Radziwill... that was crazy!! I need to find some more cozy dresses this weekend-- the heat is real! Except it has been nice in the mornings. Have a great hump day! XOXO, R

  7. OMG the Real Housewives. SO good! And I can't believe Maci is accidentally pregnant a third time?! Really? The show needs to cut her, she's a bad example. Love all three of those pretty dresses too! I'm ready for cooler weather! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  8. that last item though - so grateful for that too! seriously teen mom it's wild - you're so right about Maci. But glad she's happy though :) sending all the love to your friend with the chemo! and you look so pretty in those dresses :) happy wednesday!

  11. I need a post detailing with funny things kids say! I always see the hashtag #shitmykid says on twitter and it's hilarious!

  12. I'm loving all of those dresses you have! They look soooo comfy. You're right about kindergarteners - they are incredibly tiny at the beginning of the school year. It's amazing how much they grow between now and the end of the year!

  13. I've totally seen that Pirates Booty popcorn before and have been tempted to try! Popcorn is always my go-to snack at night when I just need a little something but don't want to eat too much before bed! OH and I love all of your dresses but the picture furthest left is SO cute. I love that one!

  14. I used to be obsessed with Teen Mom but haven't watched in a while. And yesss give me all the pirates booty!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. All dresses, all the time in summer!

    Wait, Maci got pregnant two other times? I am way out of the loop.

    Good thoughts to Kelly today!

  16. I love pirates booty as well, and I had to laugh because it's actually on my grocery list, LOL! I'm going to pray for your friend Kelly as well, and for a very very positive outcome! Love you in dresses girl, they're also cute! Like you!

  17. That Stepdog book sounds really interesting!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I am definitely looking into StepDog -- I'm a crazy dog lady! And Pirates Booty is like crack for me. I have to keep it out of the house or I'll eat the whole bag!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Maci is pregnant again?! I'm so behind on my teen mom drama, lol! It makes me sad that watermelon season is coming to an end... I'm going to miss our watermelon slushies!

    ReplyDelete
  20. You look so cute in all your dresses! I know the feel, where is fall?! Sending good thoughts to your friend kelly, how sweet is that pink get together y'all did! Have fun at the wedding, I am road tripping with my roommate to a Sunday wedding this weekend too!

    ReplyDelete
  21. You look so cute in those dresses!

    Yes Maci it isn't a mistake anymore when you have gotten pregnant 3 times! You know what you're doing and how it is happening! hahaha

    I also agree it is the most disappointing M@FS season! I don't really like any of the couples, I think it is dumb they let Heather take a break from the process because she had to think about it! I just can't! I should probably just shut up about it now LOL I have to watch last night episode when I go home from work!

  22. Love that Chevron dress you are wearing, so pretty! Prayers for your sweet friend!

    ReplyDelete
  23. You look amazing in each and every one of those dresses, girl!

    And agreed, Sunday weddings are kind of odd. We've been to a couple and it was always a bummer not drinking as much since we had to go to work the next day.

  24. we're having another heat wave next week so I can't pack away the summer clothes just yet. i wish watermelons were good around my parts! every one i've tried to select is a dud :(

    ReplyDelete
  25. MAFS is totally disappointing this season! So boring!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Love this post - I agree with the Mac thing..like come on girl and not knowing for 20 some weeks?! Whaaat? Have so much fun this weekend at the wedding, can't wait to see snaps! I'll be sending prayers to your friend as well! Have a great day love!

  27. I don't watch "Teen Mom" but I agree. Three pregnancies are not accidents. Even a second irresponsible pregnancy makes me feel like the person should have learned something.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Loving all of your dresses, I have that first one and love how easily styled it can be! Here's to hoping for less parent meetings for you friend! Your friend Kelly sounds like a rockstar and I wish her all the best for her Chemo! I totally have to agree about Married at First Sight, I haven't even wanted to watch up to keep up because it's too boring this time around. Real Housewives of anything is always a must watch though :)!

  29. lol so two weekends ago and you haven't even finished the bag? girl don't be ashamed. i could polish off a family size bag of chips (or something else similar, i don't actually know what the pirates thing is) in an hour.
    oh wow, i love all of your dresses, but especially the 3rd one! gorgeous! want it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Eeee a Sunday wedding throws a little curve ball kind of like a Friday wedding but I'm sure it will be all worth it and a fun time celebrating their big day. I can't believe it's still hitting the 90s up there....Florida is crazy hot but wow this heat isn't going anywhere fast. Super cute dresses and perfect for the temps!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Prayers to your friend as she begins chemo! So sweet of you all to show up in pink for her! :) I used to love Maci too but have I missed something about her having more kids?!?! I need to catch up!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sending your friend lots of love and positive vibes. Also, loving those dresses!
