It’s What’s Up Wednesday !
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!
Today is…my birthday!
I mean, we might as well acknowledge it, right?! If you missed my post on Monday, all week long, I’m celebrating my birthday by doing giveaways for YOU! On Monday, Wednesday and Friday this week, I’m giving away a $600 Nordstrom gift card to one lucky winner! If you didn’t win on Monday, no worries! You can try again today 🙂 . The giveaway is at the bottom of this post!
Today, Nordstrom asked me to talk about something I rarely ever talk about…wait for it…men’s things. Why don’t I talk about that? Andrew wears a ton of stuff from Nordstrom (especially shoes and shirts), but I don’t know…I just forget. With the holidays coming up, I thought now was as good of a time as any to share a few of Andrew’s favorite pics from Nordstrom. I told him to pick and here is what he liked…
Scroll and click through on the images. All of the sweaters come in multiple colors! He ordered these things (and already had the shoes), and I loved them when they arrived too…
What man does not look good in a buffalo check shirt?! I dare you to find one. I also loved the v-neck sweater and the pullover sweater too. My mom gifted all of the men in my family this body wash a few years ago for Christmas and Andrew has continued to buy it because it smells so nice. Throw in his shoes and his favorite jeans (not pictured) and he’s a well dressed guy (that smells nice!).
So, that’s a little start to our post..here’s what else is “up” today!
I mean…look at those babies!! This was me and Sheaffer on our babies’ first Halloweens. Look at little Kensington and Carter (who are five days a part). I can hardly stand it that they’re NINE now! I remember this day like it was yesterday. Time is flying by.
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
I just think my kids’ Halloween costumes are on point this year. Ha! They each picked something so different and so THEM! We have Little Red Riding Hood, a Storm Trooper, Queen Elsa and Moana. Now, Erika actually suggested Madeley’s costume…but seriously? Isn’t it just perfect…
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Living our best fall life. We’re making the most of this season!
All the people telling me I put up my Christmas decorations too early 😉 .
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Right now, lots of vacations! I talk to people EVERY.SINGLE.DAY about Alaskan cruises along with other trips like Walt Disney World and Mexico (plus other cruise spots!). If you want us to help you with your next vacation, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are currently accepting new client trips departing after January 1, 2018 to Mexico, Walt Disney World and cruises all over the world. We’d love to help you too!
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Halloween is on Tuesday!!!
Here we are last year. This year is going to be even more fun because Madeley gets it now. I cannot wait to trick or treat with my little family! (And steal all of their Heath bars…)
My October Book Review will be on Monday! If you missed my September Book Review…
This is such a good time of year to read!!
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
I’m just itching to listen to Christmas music. I will start on November 1st and you can judge me all you want…but it makes me happy! In the meantime, I have been listening to a lot of this in the background while I work…
I just can’t get enough of the Fall movies on Hallmark Channel. They’re predictable and cheesy, but they’re HAPPY! And I just can’t get enough happy in my life 🙂 . This starts on Friday…
…and you better believe my DVR is set!
Look at this dress that I bought to wear this December…
Okay, the lighting was not in my favor when I took this on Sunday morning, but trust me…this red dress is PERFECT for Christmas. The dress is lined, so you don’t have to worry about it being too revealing and the color is just perfection!
Look how cute the sleeves are! I bought this dress back in the winter in the pink color, so I knew I liked it already…
This dress comes in a total of five colors, but trust me, the red is pretttttttty!
Speaking of dresses, I’m still in love with this one that I wore on Saturday night…
…it’s just a simple little jersey dress that I will wear this time of year with my booties and a scarf and then in the spring and summer with sandals or wedges. Easy as that! (And PS: that is an infinity scarf, so you don’t have to worry about tying it…it ties itself!) (And PPS: my favorite booties from this fall are now 20% off!)
And one last thing…remember on Monday, I mentioned my love for this Halogen top…
I just can’t have too many easy tops to wear with jeans.
The front and…
…how cute is the back?! Well, look at this cute Halogen sweater…
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
On Friday, our church is hosting Trunk or Treat in the parking lot. If you are local, we would LOVE to have you come!! Your kiddos can come, they can bring bags and collect tons of candy, plus, we’re going to have other live events out there that you won’t want to miss!! I would love to see you out there! I’ll be the one stealing the Heath bars from her four kids.
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Well, other than me turning 36 today, I think that about covers it!
