What's Up Wednesday


Today is What's Up Wednesday and I'm excited to share a little of what we've been up to with you all!  We are just coming off our big trip to Texas and heading straight into the holidays so we are trying to catch up on sleep and get geared up for the rest of the year and all the fun festivities.  I'm sharing a little of this past month on the blog today and then after Thanksgiving I'll be recapping our trip!


WHAT WE'RE EATING THIS WEEK...

We are so tired of eating out!!! Seriously, it's not even a treat at this point.  We loved eating out on our trip but we're tired of eating out in our town and are so ready for some home cooked food.  Last night was my birthday so we had...


Fazoli's!  I know, not the usual choice but we barely slept the night before before working a full day after our trip so we just wanted something quick & easy!  We'll do my real birthday dinner this weekend when we can really enjoy it :)

Thursday will be full of yummy Thanksgiving food & then we'll be having home cooked food the rest of the weekend at home!


WHAT WE'RE REMINISCING ABOUT...





How much fun we had on our Texas trip!


WHAT I'M LOVING...


This dress!!  I took the gray & black on our trip and love them!  SO comfy and perfect with leggings for this time of year.  They run a little big so if you're between sizes definitely size down!



WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO...


Lots of Texas!! 

Busy life in general.  We're so glad the holidays are here so that we can relax a little and just enjoy being home together!



WHAT I'M DREADING...

Nothing right now!  It's my favorite time of year!!



WHAT I'M WORKING ON...

New vlogs!! Have you seen my most recent one:  What's In My Bag: Fall & Winter 2016?!  Be sure to subscribe to my channel :)


WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT...


Lots of things!!  Christmas decorating, wrapping gifts, the holiday season in general.  Also, this is my last week of working full time at my current job!  I'm going to 4 days a week and will spend the other day each week working from home on our lawn care business, my blog and the other businesses I consult for on the side.  This decision took a lot of prayer, preparation & consideration so I'm nervous & excited now that it's finally here! 

WHAT I'M WATCHING/READING...

Watching:

Finishing up rewatching all of Gilmore Girls before the new episodes come out this weekend!  I am going to stay off social media until I finish them as much as I can so I won't see any spoilers of the ending!

Winter finales of all our shows!  Grey's?!  Brought all the tears and so did The Vampire Diaries.  We have so many Chicago PD/Fire/Med, Lethal Weapon, This is Us, Designated Survivor and more to get caught up on.  I'm super excited to watch all the Hallmark Christmas movies I've been recording too!!  Hallmark Christmas movies are the best hands on :)  We're also looking forward to all the traditional favorites too!

Reading:

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO...


A mixture of the news and episodes of Gilmore Girls while I work!

WHAT I'M WEARING...



Lots of plaid & sweaters and boots!!

WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEKEND...

Christmas decorating!! The weekend after Thanksgiving is always a weekend we spend relaxing at home, putting up Christmas decorations and getting in the Christmas spirit!


WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH...



All the Christmas fun!!


WHAT ELSE IS NEW...

  1. We're still a few weeks away from putting up our tree but there is something lovely about drinking hot chocolate and marshmallows under the twinkling tree lights! Enjoy your thanksgiving celebrations with your family! :)
