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…
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Ah! Yesterday was my birthday and we had a very fun dinner on our town square with the sweet Slaughter family to celebrate. I’m thinking about that brisket and goat cheese pizza that I ate…and how I wished I had some for breakfast this morning. #truth
3: What I’m loving:
Did someone say Halloween clothes?! I am kind of obsessed with these outfits. I’m pretty sure they’re going to wear them every day between now and Monday.
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
All sorts of shenanigans with these four. We’re in the throes of life: school, homework, activities, holiday fun, bike riding, playing outside, and other stuff like that. These are the days that I know stress me out sometimes…but they’re also the days that I’m going to look back on and miss so much.
5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
I am not dreading Day Light Savings ending, I am looking SO FORWARD TO IT! I know a lot of people dread it being over, but I welcome it. I love it when it’s dark out early. Everything feels so cozy inside when it’s dark out. Plus…I have a really hard time being lazy when there is daylight. If it’s dark, I can put my pjs on at 6:30 and cuddle up with a book or TV…if it’s light, I feel like I should be productive outside 😉 .
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Well…our house has been under construction since the first week of September and this weekend, I can finally put it back together. #amen
Construction began two days before we left for China and is still in progress. For two months now, we haven’t been able to use the entire front portion of our house (including the front door). So…I’m very excited for that to be over and done with. Remember these pictures here…
…I totally took them at the end of August 😉 . I haven’t seen these rooms in months…it’s been blocked off. So, when my house is all put back together (goodbye dust, I hate you), I’ll share some pics.
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
This girl is heading back to Today next week! I’m in the kitchen again next Thursday morning, so set your DVRs :).
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
My October book review will be on Monday, so stay tuned for that. If you missed my last book review, click HERE. It was a good one, so you should check it out!
What I’m watching right now is One Tree Hill…thanks to Erika. I don’t even know why I’m watching this show, but I cannot stop. Erika and Andrea have been telling me to watch it, so I am. It’s like a train wreck…I just cannot look away!
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Michael Buble’s album dropped on Friday and I have it on repeat! It’s so, so, so good! Annnnd…I’ve been educating my kids on Michael Jackson, so we’ve been listening to that a lot too. Smith said he’s going to go as Michael Jackson for Halloween next year. Ha! I think it’s Thriller that gets them every time 🙂 .
Did you see my new house shoes in yesterday’s post? I’m literally wearing them RIGHT NOW! I love them! Also…speaking of yesterday’s post, did you enter to win my Birthday Giveaway? I’m giving one lucky winner a $500 Nordstrom Gift Card. Just hop over to yesterday’s post for your chance to win.
I’ve also been wearing a lot of Loft lately…
And this combo too…
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Holy Halloween! We’re doing a lot of fun stuff this weekend!
We have our church’s Trunk or Treat on Friday night, we’re going to a pumpkin patch on Saturday and then we’re going to do some other fun stuff too. We have just a few days to milk Halloween. And did I mention…I’m going to put my house back together too 🙂 .
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Did somebody say Kathie Lee and Hoda? Because I’m excited about that!
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Nothing. Same old, same old over here. Raising kids, making food, enjoying my friends and family, working on clients’ vacations…just really appreciating life.
Bonus question this month: What’s your favorite Halloween tradition?
Every year, we trick or treat with a big group of friends…that is always my favorite tradition! I love these sweet people so much!! I can’t wait until Monday night!
Whew! That’s What’s Up Wednesday today! If you blogged too, make sure you link up below. See you tomorrow!
