waiting on...Wednesday {link-up #26}

While I'm Waiting...Waiting on...Wednesday link up
Welcome back to the Waiting on...Wednesday link-up - a place where you can link up what you are waiting on, going through, making, anything - as long as it's family-friendly!  :)  After you link up, please make sure to read a few others - and don't forget to tell them you found them at Waiting on...Wednesday!  

So, school started back on Monday and my kids are adjusting well.  Me?  Well, I'm not ready to admit defeat (yet!) but I feel like I peaked on Monday and it's just downhill from there.  Completely kidding (kind of!) but mama is feeling the effects of the early mornings! Summer sure was good to us!  But, I am looking forward to our schedules become more routine and having some time to get back to blog reading, commenting, sharing, etc. I've missed you guys!!!  Thanks for hanging in there with me!  I really, really do appreciate you linking up each week!

You can find all the previous features pinned to the link-up party FEATURES board on Pinterest!  Thanks for being patient - I'm hoping to start up features again soon!
Follow Holly @ While I'm Waiting...'s board While I'm Waiting - Waiting on...Wednesday link-up party FEATURES! on Pinterest.

Just a few things to remember about the link-up:
*All topics are welcome - as long as they are created or written by you and are family friendly!  Old posts - new posts... it's up to you!  Please link to your specific post URL and not to your blog home page.
*You can link up to two posts/blog.
*Please place a link back to this link-up in either your post or on your party page so that others can link up too.
*It's a party, try to visit at least 2 other posts and show them some love!  This is the fun part!  Be inspired, inspire someone else - don't just link and run!  Leave comments (and tell them you found them on Waiting on...Wednesday!), share and pin their posts - you know, show some love!
*Each week I'll choose a few posts to feature at the next link party.  I'll also pin the featured posts to the While I'm Waiting - Waiting on...Wednesday link-up party FEATURES Pinterest board.
*If you would like to follow me, that would be awesome but it's not required.

So, grab the graphic, link back to While I'm Waiting... and share away!  And then prepare to be inspired, encouraged, and entertained!

What am I waiting on?  Wow!  This one is a hard one to swallow but the sweet baby that you see in the picture below will turn 5 on Sunday!  I keep double checking my math because, seriously, there is just.no.way it's been five years!!!  She is celebrating Sunday afternoon with a few friends at our local ceramic painting studio with a puppy party!  I can't wait to share it with you soon!

  1. I'm having trouble getting up in the mornings too! Our summers are so relaxing (plus I've gotten into the habit of staying up too late)! I guess we'll get used to it again after a couple weeks :-)
    Thanks so much for hosting!

    1. Lisa, that's exactly my problem! I love staying up late! There's just something about having all your people safe and sound under your roof - but with silence! ;) I get so much done after bed times! Well, except for last night! I was sound asleep by 9:30! ;) Thanks for linking up! Here's to us getting back into the groove sooner versus later!

  2. 5?! I can't imagine. My daughter will be 3 in April and I can't wrap my brain around it. 5 is quite the milestone. Congrats!

  3. Wow, 5 well, that is my favorite year. Getting ready, or trying to get ready to meet my new five year olds in a week or so. So not motivated to get back to school. Happy Birthday to Hope!

    1. I know exactly how you feel, Michelle, and we've already started back! I put a smile on for the kids but think, UGH! Here we go again! But, I'll get adjusted soon! It just takes a while! I love summer so always have an ache in my heart when it's over - not to mention that it reminds me that my baby is turning a year older! Hope you have a great school year! Your kiddos are lucky to have you as their teacher!!!

Sweet girl was happy were she was at - this picture was after hours of trying to get her here. Shelly was there and sweetly put my hair in a pony tail before pictures. She's your go to girl! :)
