What's Up Wednesday-July 2022

Happy Wednesday Besties! It's time for What's Up Wednesday where I link up with Shaeffer and Shay and talk about all things July! Settle in and find out what we have been up to this month.

What We're Eating This Week

Monday-chicken stir fry

Tuesday-slider meatballs, salad

The rest of the week will depend on what day my Butcher Box arrives. We are still loving Butcher Box and it really has been helpful to have a month's worth of meat on hand and I love having different cuts of meat every month. If you want to give Butcher Box a try you can save $30 on your first box and get free bacon for life with this link

What I am Reminiscing About

We are a couple of weeks away from vacation and I have been thinking about all of the years past in Hilton Head. This will be our fourth time there and I cannot wait.

What I'm Loving

I have been using the Laura Mercier Caviar eye sticks lately and I am loving them. I think they last longer than other cream eye shadows and they do not irritate my very sensitive eyes.

The other new beauty product I am loving is Flamingo Shave. I have been looking for a razor that I love. This is the women's line from Harry's. Running Daddy has been a fan of Harry's for many years now and they are the only razors he uses. I am really loving the Flamingo razors because they are sharp but easy on the razor burn at the same time. You can buy them in stores but you can also just have them dropped on your doorstep too. Yes, please!

I am also loving this Stella Chain Crystal Chain necklace. It is a shorter length so it is so Good for layering. I also love how highend it looks but I would not worry about traveling with it. This just launched and I think I am going to be wearing this a lot.

What We've Been Up To

We had a really lovely Fourth of July and spent some time with friends we have not seen in a while at our pool.

We also had a hockey tournament in the Philadelphia area. Hockey Guy played really well and I was able to work from the road.

We have also really been enjoying our summer weekends.

What I'm Dreading

I have a ton of school paperwork to do and I am dreading it. I have done a few things but there are also some things I cannot do until after physicals and we have all of those forms.

What I'm Working On

See above...this week I am working on a lot of school paperwork.

I also have a lot of work right now. The summer is usually my busy season, which is not ideal and I am going to be slammed until after the election.

On a fun note, I starting to work on packing lists and vacation grocery lists. I love a Good list and vacation lists are the Best.

What I'm Excited About

I am super excited about our trip to Hilton Head. It's one of my favorite places and I cannot wait to chill for a bit.

What I am Watching/Reading

I have a small stack of books and magazines ready to go for our trip. I just have to get through all my work and then I am looking forward to some coffee and books.

We are watching a few fun things. We decided to binge watch Southern Charm from the beginning. While we have watched every season, it is interesting to watch it all so close together.

The evolution of Craig is really the Best.

I am also watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I going to say this, I have never been a Kyle fan and I think they are finally showing what a mean girl Kyle really is.

I also started watching The Summer I Became Pretty and I am really liking it. I am usually so behind on these things but I do get why people like this series. This is probably for high schoolers ad up.

What I'm Listening To

I am listening to all of my usual podcasts. If you are a Housewives fan I highly recommend The Bravo Dockett. They are two Housewives fans who are also lawyers. They are really Good at breaking down all of the Erika Jayne and Jen Shah legal drama. They explain all of the legalese for these types of cases and what it all means.

I also need to work on a Hilton Head playlist. 

What I'm Wearing

I haven't really bought anything new because I am saving money for our trip.  I am mostly accessorizing to keep things fresh.

I did buy these linen pants recently. They are total classics and can be dressed up or down.


What I'm Doing This Weekend

We have a family party and then I will also start getting things ready for our trip. I am also hoping to get a pedicure. 

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month

I am so looking forward to our trip to South Carolina and being in Hilton Head. We also have a hockey tournament at the end of August that will kick off the hockey season.

What Else is New

I think I covered basically everything. You will want to come by tomorrow as Holly and I are hosting Monthly Musings tomorrow. The topic this month is Back to School Prep. We are not trying to rush the summer away but we thought it would be a Good idea to share tips and tricks now because there is such a range of back to school dates from mid-August all the way past Labor Day.

The questions are below and we hope you will join us as a writer, reader or both.

That's my wrap up of July. I will see you back here tomorrow. 


  1. So excited for you and your trip- eeeh!!! Can't wait to read all about it! See you tomorrow friend :)

  2. Glad you have a vacation to look forward to in the midst of a lot of paperwork to do. Enjoy your day!

  3. I love seeing how many people are watching TSITP! I read the books back in the day and watching the show has been so nostalgic.

  4. Oh it sounds like that trip to Hilton Head is much needed! I hope you have a fabulous time.
