Y’all…this week is kicking my hiney. Smith had baseball on Monday night, I spoke at my parents’ church on Tuesday night, we have baseball tonight and Andrew is out of town tomorrow night. Our nights are so busy this week! Because of that, I have used my slow cooker every.single.night this week.
You can see my busy weeknight supper recipes here.
2. What I’m reminiscing About…
My new jeans 🙂. Gap isn’t really selling the jeans I used to buy any more, so I had to venture out and find some new ones to roll up and wear this fall. And I found the ones my heart loves. They wear well without sagging (you know how sometimes jeans fit great and then two hours later, they’re loose and sagging and just not right), they roll up great but will also tuck into my tall boots, they’re super comfy and very affordable! Prepare yourselves…you will see me in these all fall and winter long :).
For a size reference, I bought a 26.
And unfortunately, those cute wedges are old. Boo. I hate that because they are really comfy and wish you could get them too!
Last weekend, we did Oktoberfest in our town with my parents and now this weekend…we’re doing it in their town. Oktoberfest times two! Woohoo!
If you can’t tell…I’m totally into Oktoberfest :).
I mentioned yesterday that I’m going back for another skin check in October. I’m going twice a year now. Listen friends, we have to do this stuff! If you haven’t been for a skin check in a while (or ever), make an appointment today! We shouldn’t dread this stuff. We should be proactive and take care of ourselves.
Lots of vacations! I’m always the busiest coming out of summer because everyone wraps up their summer vacation and starts planning and looking forward to the next year.
Right now, I am accepting vacations for friends, family and current clients anywhere in the world and for new clients, I’m planning trips to Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line. I’m doing this different than in years past and so far, it’s been a great idea :).
The idea came to me back in June when I booked my family a Disney Cruise. We wanted to do something special with Ashby on her one year anniversary with us and my big kids reaaaaaaaallly want to go on a Disney Cruise, so we booked one for early next year. My clients love, love, love Disney cruises, so I’m excited to take my family on one too! And bonus…we knew we couldn’t celebrate Ashby’s one year anniversary with us without her very favorite person (BOWEN!), so the Slaughters are coming too :).
I decided to make it a Disney year and focus my new business on either Walt Disney World or Disney Cruise Line (because it’s so darn happy and fun!). If you’re interested, I’m now accepting trips through August 2016. You just need to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. As a certified Disney travel agent, I have sent more people to WDW and on Disney cruises over the last 3.5 years than anywhere else in the world…and there’s a reason for that…Disney is magical :).
Well, I know I sound like a broken record here but…I’m excited about doing all of these fun things with Ashby!
State Fair of Texas
On Monday, I posted my September Book Review with what I’ve been reading this month. You can read it here.
And then last night, this debuted…
…how can I not love this?!?! I didn’t get home until really late last night, so it’s on my DVR…but I’m hoping it’s as cute as he is ;).
The real answer is that in my sick and twisted mind, I would like to be listening to Christmas music because it just makes me so happy…but…I’m refraining until November.
Lately you guys have liked when I posted pics of me heading to church…so, here I am last week wearing one of my day to day tops with a skirt. See…one top, two different ways…
And bonus…that top is 40% off right now :).
See, I don’t really buy new stuff for church…I just work with what I have and then repeat a lot!
Did somebody say Oktoberfest???
So…I joined Periscope a while back and haven’t done anything with it yet. Perhaps we could make dinner together some nights? I don’t know??? Are any of you on Periscope?!? I may or may not play around with it :).
We love having a spooky dinner prior to trick-or-treating! Most years, I make Ghoul-ash before we head out, and it’s one of my favorite little traditions. Then after trick-or-treating with friends, we come back and eat candy :).
That’s what’s up this Wednesday! I can’t wait to go through the link up below and see what’s up with you!
On my foodie blog today…
…Apple Pecan Bread with a Cream Cheese Drizzle.
You need this in your life.
Happy Wednesday friends! I hope you have a great rest of the day!
