I didn’t do a What’s Up Wednesday Post last month because of Hawaii so I figured I was due to do one today! I am linking up with Mix and Match Mama for What’s up Wednesday to update you on what’s going on in the life of Claire!

What We’re Eating:

Sunday and Monday: Grilling! | Tuesday: Miguel’s favorite Chicken Tator Tot Casserole | Wednesday: Beef and Rice Skillet | Thursday: Ravioli Bake (All coming to my 100 one pot meals soon!)

What I’m Reminiscing About:

Days when Summer meant “break”.
Now summer just means it’s really hot when I go to work lol.

What I’m Loving:

I know that last comment was negative, but don’t get me wrong, I LOVE May weather. It is always the best here in Iowa. Not too hot (Except for this past weekend) and sun shining and it’s the best. We have got to spend a lot of time outside this month which is awesome.

What we’ve been up to:

In the month of May we..

Celebrated Cinco De Mayo.

Played Golf a couple of times.

Celebrated Mother’s day.

We had one weekend full of parties you can see here.

Then this past weekend we “ran” a “.5k” at a local winery. The “race” had a halfway-point pit stop for a drink. It was all for fun and included a brunch after. Lot’s of fun!

What I’m Dreading:

I love the weather but I hate the BUGS that come with summer.

What I’m Working on:

I’m really trying to get our house more decorated and organized like I want it so I worked on that a lot in May and hope to go full blast in June. I will be sharing more of the spaces I complete as I go. You can see our linen closet makeover here. And some new summer decor here.

What I’m Excited About:

I mentioned it before, but I just got an apple watch and new iPhone 8+ that I am still pretty excited about and loving! I got this marble case for it.

What I’m Watching/Reading:

This month I read Jane Steele – which I do recommend! It took me a while to get into it but I ended up really liking it. And then Simple Organizing I am reading this week and I will let you know how it goes. Hopefully it gives me inspiration for my organizing plans.

As for TV, our shows the Blacklist and Blindspot finished up for the year and we just started The Ranch on Netflix.

What I’m Listening To:

I don’t listen to a lot of music other than the radio. But The Greatest Showman soundtrack still gets me pumped.

What I’m Wearing:

See How I am transitioning my summer wardrobe here.

See what I have been wearing to work here.

And I love my new shorts. So comfy!

What I’m doing this weekend:

We have a wedding to attend. We’re traveling to Chicago and also celebrating my Dad’s birthday.

What I’m looking forward to next month: 

More nice weather and not a lot of stuff planned. My biggest June goal is to purge and organize the house closets/drawers and it needs done so bad I am looking forward to when it is nice and organized!

What else is new:

I really think I covered it all! I am so close to finishing our bedroom for a reveal here on the blog so I’ve gotten a little more progress on that but I don’t want to show it until it’s done!

Thanks for catching up!
