1. WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
Megan and I met for breakfast this week to talk about the blog and YouTube stuff. It turned into a therapy session for the both of us which actually was really nice. I think we were both looking to get a few things off our chest. But back to breakfast! I had a flight of pancakes which was made up of a sweet potato pancake, a peanut butter cup pancake and a blueberry danish pancake. Heavenly.
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Megan – I went to Utah last week for a wedding. The timing was bad so my husband and kids couldn’t go but I had the best time with my parents for a few days. I haven’t spent that much time with them alone in many years.
Wendy – School starts in just a few weeks and I’m reminiscing about the start of the summer season. I just love the freedom we have to do whatever we want with our day. June seems very far away again.
3. WHAT I’M LOVING:
Megan convinced me (she has to do that a lot, I think) to buy a package of six paint sessions at Timree Studio. It’s basically guided paint instruction and it’s been so fun and so therapeutic. I look forward to it each time we go. I don’t want that to end either. (Megan is just nodding along here. Timree has been a highlight of my summer for sure. And we’ve paid for all of our paint classes ourselves.)
4. WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Wendy – Last weekend we went to Staples Center to watch the men’s USA basketball team play China. I can’t wait for the 2016 Olympics to start! I’m especially looking forward to women’s soccer and swimming.
Megan – Trying not to whine all day long about the heat, but failing miserably. I’m attempting to be the fun mom and get in the pool with my kids and get my hair wet.
5. WHAT I’M DREADING:
Megan – It just started getting hot here and I’m having a hard time seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Come on November!
Wendy – If I wasn’t clear earlier, I’m dreading the start of school. I just get so burned out by the routine of hurry up and go in the morning and homework in the afternoon. I’m all ears if someone has some advice on how to make the transition easier (for me, not my kid).
6. WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Megan – Getting organized! This is a constant challenge (made easier by the fact that I live and die by my planner) but I’m so far out of the menu planning mode that I just dread dinner time. This family needs some routines.
Wendy – We had new carpet put in our home last week and I’m still putting things back where they belong. We had to clear out every bedroom and closet and we unearthed so many things. Things we really don’t need. I actually felt a little exposed by how much stuff we have. So, I’ve been taking my time going through things and discarding the stuff we really have no use for.
7. WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Megan – A road trip soon with Wendy! Vegas here we come!
Wendy – Am I the only one who has trouble mustering excitement for things? I think it has a lot to do with my anxiety. Talk to me, tell me I’m not alone.
8. WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
Megan – Currently reading Shopaholic to the Rescue. Not even going to pretend to be reading a different book. I am FLYING through books this summer. Currently watching Big Brother of course!
Wendy – I am currently listening to Girls by Emma Cline and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. I find both to be a little slow but swear I’ll finish these ones before the end of summer. I am also watching The Night Of which is an 8 episode mini-series on HBO. It’s crime and punishment and everything else I’m obsessed with.
9. WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Megan – All Hamilton, all the time.
Wendy – I’m in a bit of a dry spell in terms of what I’m listening to. All my favorite podcasts can’t come out quick enough, there aren’t any great tunes to drown myself in and I’m bored with the two audio books I’m listening to. Send help, friends.
10. WHAT I’M WEARING:
Megan – I’ve worn this maxi dress so many times that I caved and ordered it in a second color. (I have the black and white polka dot, and the blue is on it’s way to me.)
Wendy – I have absolutely nothing exciting to share here. I’ve been living in and out of two pair of shorts I found at Target earlier this summer. Mama needs a new wardrobe, better hit Pinterest for some inspiration. Mama really needs to go on a diet, too. But that wasn’t the question.
11. WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Megan – I know we plan to head to Disneyland at some point and that’s it. I love having a wide open weekend in front of me.
Wendy – We’re headed to our first MLB game of the season. Our local team is the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and they play the Red Sox this weekend. Now, this isn’t my first time at the stadium this season. Check out Megan and I with Angels outfielder Mike Trout from earlier in the month!
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Megan – My husband turns 40! I want to make this birthday special for him, so I really need to get things started!
Wendy – I am looking forward to a road trip with Megan. Watch out Oprah and Gayle! We’ll be making video and snapping a ton. Follow us on Snapchat at meganandwendy.
13. WHAT ELSE IS NEW?
Wendy – Are your kids playing with the Music.ly app? My daughter is making videos all day long or playing Pokeman Go. I’ve gotta admit, both are pretty fun.
