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: Grilling | Monday: Smoked Sausage and Penne | Tuesday: Meatloaf | Wednesday: Pork Chops | Thursday: Crockpot Chicken Tacos | Weekend: We will be traveling!

What I’m Reminiscing About:

Hmm.. I’m really just looking forward to the future right now! A fun vacation and then FALL.

What I’m Loving:

I shared A LOT of things I am loving in last weeks Friday Favorites that include smart outlet plugs and my new kindle! Also, I know I posted about it last month, but my Roomba had been life changing! I love it so much. I love that I can run it when I’m not even home and it gets all the gross stuff of my floors! I run it all the time.

What we’ve been up to:

Miguel has been traveling for work A LOT and we have also been pretty busy ourselves too. In this past month we have:

Traveled to Atlanta.

Miguel was in a wedding in Wisconsin

We visited my family in Chicago.

We have both been trying to be healthy and work out!

We went to the evening Farmer’s Market with friends.

What I’m Dreading:

Coming back from work after vacation this weekend 😉

What I’m Working on:

Well, my 9-5 job has been pretty crazy lately. But other than that, I finally took my last donate pile to the thrift store and I can say I completed my Summer purge and organize mission! I am pumped. Of course now I kind of want to go through things again and purge more.

There’s also been packing for vacation, planning for Fall, and really trying to focus on my blog and Instagram.

What I’m Excited About:

All things Fall! I went Fall decor shopping last weekend and I am going to decorate soon. I love fall and Halloween. It might be my favorite home decor. I also love love love College Football so I’m anxiously waiting for that to start as well.

What I’m Watching/Reading:

I just finished the second Crazy Rich Asians book: China Rich Girlfriend and I love this series. I need to see the movie! I am starting the third one on my kindle this weekend.

We also caught up on the latest season of Shameless on Netflix. I watched all of Queer Eye and I am currently making my way through all of the Fixer Upper episodes in the morning while I get ready for work. I’m also watching Trial & Error – it is really good too!

What I’m Listening To:

Nothing in particular.

What I’m Wearing:

It is the weird time of the year where we all have our new fall clothes but it is just still to hot to wear any of it so we are stuck still wearing our summer clothes, but you don’t want to buy new summer clothes! I did a massive online Fall clothes shopping spree last week that I will probably be sharing next month. But here a few transitional pieces I just got:

Love these pajama bottoms from J Crew!

This is a great transitional piece because it’s sleeveless but fall colors. I ordered it but it hasn’t come in yet!

I love these tees from J Crew too! Another great piece for spring-fall.

What I’m doing this weekend:

Leaving on our vacation to the Caribbean 🙂

What I’m looking forward to next month: 

September means I can bring out my pumpkins and Fall decor, watch football, the best Iowa weather, oh and it’s our first wedding anniversary 🙂

What else is new:

I think I have covered everything!

Thanks for catching up!
