What's Up Weekend

What’s Up Weekend 8.3.18

Happy Friday my friends!! Another week gone by, surprisingly fast. I thought it would drag by with Nate being gone for part of it, but it actually went pretty quick! As always I’m here with my ladies Charlotte and Lindsay to host our weekly happiness post, What’s Up Weekend. It’s time to look back at the good things and things I’m grateful for from the past week. Here we go!

(1) Fresh red hair. I actually used a little lightener before I put the red color in this time and I think it gave a much more vibrant result!

(2) A fun library visit with Mr. Oliver. I was only going to let him bring home four books, but we ended up with seven. I’m not going to discourage reading!

(3) An impromptu picnic lunch with the boys last Saturday. We were going to just eat at home on our own deck, but Nate suggested we go have a picnic at a nearby park and it was lovely.

(4) A good chat with my mom. My brain has been on overdrive on a few things and sometimes only your mom understands, am I right?

(5) Delicious Chinese food for dinner with my sister-in-law the other night. I haven’t had chow mein in so long and it was so good!

(6) My sweet little artist telling me “when I grow up I want to be an artist!” Be who you want to be my boy. No one is going to stop you!

(7) Queer Eye season two. Cue the tears but my gosh so much love. And I want those guys to be my real life besties.

(8) Facetiming with my person while he was gone. Thank god for modern technology! And a silly kiddo who took a ton of pictures of daddy, ha!

(9) A little sleepover with Ollie in my bed while Nate was gone. I wasn’t sure how it would go, but he asked if he could stay with me and so I said yes. It was actually nice having the company and waking up to that sweet little face was an added bonus.

(10) Nate is home again! Ollie and I made the most of our time together while Nate was gone, but we’re still happy he is home!

This weekend and into next week are pretty calm overall. I kind of feel like it’s the calm before the storm, the second half of August is going be crazy town with showers, a wedding, family visiting, the State Fair. So I’m going to enjoy the downtime while it lasts!

Please feel free to link up with the ladies and I below and check out the other posts as well! Have a great weekend!

  1. Your hair looks amazing as always! Love the red! I’m glad your time without Nate went well. I am always an anxious wreck when I know Rob will be out of town, especially now with having the baby. You got yourself a good little man there helping you get through those times. Also exciting that he wants to be an artist! Paint on little man! Have a happy weekend!

  2. Ooh I love the bright red, it looks great! A picnic sounds so fun, I’ve been wanting to do that and I can’t believe we haven’t yet. We need to make that happen soon!!

  3. I love the hair! I wish I could pull off a bold color like that, but it always makes me look like I’m sick. How fun that you got to go on a picnic. I need more picnics in my life! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I feel like Ollie will be starting college soon. We’ve gotten to watch him grow up so fast! I’m glad you have that kind of relationship with your mom – my girls do with theirs, too – because you’re right, who should know better than mom?

  5. I am so late to the party!!! So sorry about that and hope you had a wonderful weekend! Awww yay for Nate being home and sleepovers with Ollie. So cute <3 also, I love that he wants to be an artist, and that you encourage his creativity and reading 🙂

    Also your hair looks fabulous and I really need to watch queer eye. I hear so many good things!
