Once a month, my friends Mel, Sheaffer and I host this link up where we share some random and fun stuff that’s up with us today. If you blogged WUW too, make sure you link up at the bottom of the post! Every month, we answer these questions…
…in our What’s Up Wednesday posts!
So, let’s get started!
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Over the weekend, we went to Andrew’s parents’ house and every time I visit during Thanksgiving week, it makes me think of the first time I was there. Fourteen years ago, I went to his parents’ farm for the first time over Thanksgiving. I most certainly wasn’t the first girl he brought home…but oh I am so glad that I was the last. Love this guy so much.
(And pssssst: my polish is OPI’s The Spy Who Loved Me and my scarf is HERE.)
3: What I’m loving:
Everything fall at Nordstrom. So, next week, Sheaffer and I are teaming up with Nordstrom and once again hosting our Five Days of Fabulous and friends…IT’S GOING TO BE FANTASTIC! You and your friends are going to want to enter to win every day…because you’re not going to want to miss the prizes. It’s our gift to YOU this Christmas season. These are some of my favorite fall finds at Nordstrom this month…
This sweater right here has been one of my absolute FAVORITES this month! I have the heather gray but it comes in 8 other colors too. I seriously wear it at least once a week. It’s so soft and comfy but cute at the same time. And those slippers make me happy too. #justsayin
Can’t stop, won’t stop 🙂 .
My favorite go-to black dress this season is on repeat in my closet. It’s the cutest and comfiest little dress for only $35! Yes, it’s only $35!! It comes in black and green. You can find my booties HERE.
So, what I’m loving is fall at Nordstrom PLUS how awesome they are for helping us make giveaways possible. Thank you in advance Nordstrom! And everyone check back here next week for Five Days of Fabulous!!!
Here are some of my other favorite fall finds this season (just scroll and click!)…
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
The kiddos are off this week for Thanksgiving break, so we’ve seen Trolls, we’ve visited the Perot Museum, we’ve put together puzzles, we’ve baked…we’ve been busy enjoying the time!
5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
Is it too early to say that I’m dreading taking the Christmas decorations down? Because I am. Because it’s always such a bummer to see it end…PLUS it’s not nearly as much fun packing it away as it is putting it up.
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
My little travel agency is making magical vacations come true! We are sending families to Walt Disney World and on cruises in the Caribbean, Mexico, Alaska and Hawaii (on all lines…not just Disney).
Don’t we have the cutest clients?!?! We LOVE making vacations come true for these sweet families. If you are planning your 2017 vacation (or even 2018!), email us because we would love to help! firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂 .
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Did somebody say Christmas activities?!?! We are pumped about all that we have planned this holiday season. I’m almost finished with Christmas shopping, so now, it’s time to enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! It’s Madeley’s first Christmas…and that is so special to us!
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
Somebody make it stop. I started watching One Tree Hill and just cannot.stop.watching. This show is really kind of crazy…but I’m sucked in and can’t quit it. On top of binge watching this, we’ve been watching a lot of Christmas movies as a family :). And next week, I’m sharing my November Book Review, but if you missed this…
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
We are listening to Christmas music 24/7. I turn it on when we wake up (at 4:20 AM) and then turn it off when we go to sleep. It’s on in the car too 🙂 . My kids are at that perfect age because they LOVE Christmas music. I mean…I guess I’m at that perfect age because I do too :).
And you’ll notice that I listen to Michael Buble (Holiday) Radio on Pandora. It was announced several weeks ago that his three year old son Noah has cancer. Wouldn’t it be nice if every time we heard Michael Buble sing a carol on the radio, we prayed for his family? Just a thought for your holiday season.
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
I believe we covered that up top, right? I’m wearing cozy layers and my favorite fall finds right now from Nordstrom. Um, like this sweater again…
…see, I just keep wearing it 🙂 .
And I showed you this picture last week…
…so the lighting isn’t fantastic but you can see the boots. The heels aren’t super high, so they’re realllly comfy!
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
We have so much to do! We’re going to our town square’s Home for the Holidays event, we’re going to see my parents’ town square all lit up for Christmas AND my kids are in our church’s Christmas musical on Sunday morning. We’re welcoming in the season with a BANG!
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
…well, not next month but in January, we are super pumped because my sister-in-law’s company turns one and there’s going to be a BIG celebration in Dallas! My girlfriends and I have already bought tickets and are turning it into a fun girls night out! So, if you’re local and want to go Loweco with us…get your tickets and come check it out! And don’t forget to check out Loweco.’s website while you’re at it. We are SO PROUD of you Catherine!! You had a big dream and now, it’s celebrating one year of success!!
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Bonus question this month: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
Watching the parade in our pajamas. Is that lame? Because that’s my favorite! Every Thanksgiving morning, we stay in our pajamas and watch the floats while eating breakfast. This is hands down one of my FAVORITE traditions! Here we were last year watching at Andrew’s parents’ house…
…this year, there will be six piled in 🙂 .
Whew! That’s What’s Up Wednesday today! If you blogged too, make sure you link up below.
I will be enjoying Thanksgiving tomorrow instead of blogging, but I’ll be back on Friday to share everything I’m buying this Christmas season (and hopefully, you’ll share ideas in the comment section too!). Happy Thanksgiving friends. God bless you and your family this holiday weekend. xo
