What's Up Wednesday - (7/26/17)

It is the last Wednesday of the month, and I can't believe July is over!  Here's a little look at what we've been up to this month.   

On the last Wednesday of every month I'm linking up with Shay to answer these questions:

1.  What we're eating this week...
Tonight I made some yummy ricotta toast with heirloom tomatoes.  It was my first time making it, and I think Mike and I were both pleased :) Here's a similar recipe, I just added a balsamic reduction to the top of ours.   

2.  What I'm reminiscing about...
Growing up listening to New Kids on the Block!  They were back in town this month for their Total Package Tour, with Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul.  I went to see them with some of my besties, and they did not disappoint!  NKOTB was my first concert!!  I remember it being a huge moment, we even took a limo to the concert.  

The boys put on an amazing show, almost 30 years later, and still sounded great!!

How cute is my bestie with her baby Archer bump?! Can't wait to shower this soon-to-be mommy next month! 

3.  What I'm loving...
I have been spending a lot of time coloring with my littles lately, and I am loving this time with them.  Vincent is getting really good!  I'm sure that they both get their artistic skills from their Dad.  

4.  What we've been up to...
We celebrated America's Birthday on the 4th!

...and we celebrated 7-11 with FREE slurpees on the 11th :) Both of the kid's first, none of them were extremely thrilled with them, too cold I think. 

Last week I was in Washington D.C. for work.  The Department of Veterans Affairs main office is right across the street from The White House!

We've also been spending a lot of time at the park.  

5.  What I'm dreading...
In two weeks Vincent starts VPK!  I can't believe that day is almost here.  Truly bittersweet!  I honestly feel like his first day at daycare was yesterday, time truly flies by when you have kids.  

6.  What I'm working on...
I have been working on travel plans for a girls trip to NYC next month for the US Open.  I haven't been to NY in about 4 years.  Do you have any must see recommendations? 

7.  What I'm excited about...
Spending time with family and friends over the next few weeks, we've got big plans in August!

8.  What I'm watching/reading...
Only a few episodes left of The Bachelorette

And we are totally engulfed in every episode of Big Brother 

I finally finished reading Big Little Lies, a great read!  The end was my favorite part of the book.  

9.  What I'm listening to...
Sam Hunt on repeat!! After seeing him in concert this month, my man crush has reached new heights!  He was amazing in concert, and listening to the acoustic album takes me back to the concert 

I am still enjoying listening to the weekly "Yoga Girl"  podcasts 

10.  What I'm wearing...
Even though its hot, my white jeans have been on repeat.  I also got this cute dress from TJMaxx that I wore to the Sam Hunt concert.  It's light weight and effortless.  Love when I find cheap and cute buys like this.  

11.  What I'm doing this weekend...
My cousins from Cincinnati are coming into town for a visit!  I can't wait to spend time with them and catch up.  

12.  What I'm looking forward to next month...
Sooooooo many things! 

  • Vincent's BFF Mia's Birthday
  • My BFF Lindsay's Baby Shower
  • Cousin Fantasy Football Draft weekend in Orlando
  • Vincent's 4th Birthday
  • Ed Sheeran concert with my hubby
  • Girls trip to NYC
August is going to be an amazing and busy month!!

13.  What else is new...
We got to meet baby Vera Rose this month, and she is perfection!! So happy for Mike's cousin and his family and loved meeting the newest Florio and welcoming her to the family. 

We also renewed our Busch Gardens annual passes this month.  I'm excited to spend time there with the kids on the weekends and take Arianna to see the Elmo show, since we got rained out of her first one.  

14.  Bonus Question - What is your favorite thing about summer...
Spending quality time with these littles, enjoying fun in the sun over the summer months!!
