It’s What’s Up Wednesday!
The last Wednesday of the 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…
…plus a bonus question.
So, here we go…this is what’s up with me today…
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
We’re eating all the home cooked meals this week. #amen
And if you need some fall food inspiration, you can click HERE for my favorite fall recipes (both savory and sweet).
Give me all the fall food this time of year.
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Did someone say China? Because that’s all we’re reminiscing about these days :).
3: What I’m loving:
Kensington and I still can’t stop wearing our booties. Kensington wore her booties almost every day in China. She swears they are the comfiest shoes she has. I didn’t take my booties to China but you better bet I’ve been wearing them daily since our return. I love bootie season so much :). Mine come in three colors and I bought the wood suede version.
And I also love my polish color. It’s OPI’s Let’s Be Friends.
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
We’ve been recovering from jet lag. Whew! IT IS A BEAST! Just when you think you’ve got it beat, it sneaks up on you and takes you down. We’ve all been in a bit of a fog the last week. The other night, I walked in and Madeley was on the floor wedged between the chair and and the ottoman. I asked Andrew what she was doing and he was like “she was playing and then just laid down”. Girl…I feel you!
5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
Hmmm…I don’t think I’m dreading anything right this minute.
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Thankfully, I arranged my schedule so that I’m not working on a lot right now…I’m kind of on a maternity leave of sorts and enjoying time with my baby. I wrapped up another cookbook the day before we left for China. (Praise the Lord, I wanted it done and turned in before we left and I just.barely.made.it.) I have some speaking events coming up, and will do a little promotion for Eats, but basically, I’m just focusing on my travel agency between now and the rest of the year.
Speaking of my travel agency…
…I just love it when sweet families send us pictures from their vacations! Right now, we are booking trips for new clients to Walt Disney World or any cruise that sails in the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii or Alaska. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. My job is so happy :).
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Eats hits bookstores THIS SATURDAY! If you pre-ordered on Amazon, you either already received your copy or will be getting it very soon…but as of October 1, you can actually go to your local bookstore and grab a copy. I am so proud of this book. I hope you love it too!
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
I only have 3 more episodes of The Good Wife left and friends, IT IS SO GOOD! I am seriously going to be sad when Alicia Florrick leaves my life. I just love and hate binge watching because when it comes to an end, it’s always so sad. As for what I’m reading, my September Book Review will be on Monday and it might be my best batch of books for the year…so you do not want to miss it!
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
I mean…you all know how much I love me some Michael Buble and his new album comes out in October…but right now, you can pre-order the new album on iTunes and instantly get the first four songs on the album. I’m obsessed. Now, I’m about to be obnoxious and name drop here…but a few years ago I became friends with both of his sisters and they know how much I fan girl, so they text me little behind the scenes pics and snip-its from things and it’s like my favorite thing EVER. This album is amazing…you all need it :). I can’t wait for his 2017 tour!
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
Well…the weather is finally changing a bit here in North Texas, so I’m enjoying some of my favorite fall things…
…like these gray jeans and my leopard top (with my booties, of course!). I showed a picture of the back of the jeans because I know some people want to see pockets and such. They’re super comfy with just the right amount of stretch. And I didn’t realize my plaid shirt was back there until just now, but it’s cute, right? It’s from J. Crew.
And then two days ago, I ordered these two scarves for fall…
Hello pretty fall scarf. I love you.
And speaking of scarves…this one I bought last year…
…well, it’s back in stock this year too. It’s soft, it’s plaid, it’s pretty….it’s basically perfect.
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Going on a road trip.
I mean…nothing says a week back home from China like a big road trip, right?
Andrew is being inducted in the inaugural class of his high school’s hall of fame this weekend, so we are loading up and heading to Missouri to watch him be honored. Plus bonus, now all of our Missouri family can meet Miss Madeley.
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
The list is LONG my friends:
Madeley’s 2nd birthday
The State Fair of Texas
Pumpkin Patch visit
Our annual Harvest Party with friends
Halloween and trick or treating
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Oh goodness, everything feels kind of new right now…I’m just trying to keep my head above water.
Bonus question this month: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FALL FOOD:
Well…I have hundreds of recipes perfect for fall 🙂. Here are just a few of my faves:
