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 grandmother’s 90th birthday!
Everyone say happy birthday to Mimi (she loves to go by Mimi!)…
…90 years ago today, she (and a twin brother who did not survive birth) were born. Amanda Mae Doris Lowe is one of my favorite people in the whole wide world! She is ALWAYS positive, encouraging, uplifting, sweet, genuine AND HYSTERICALLY FUNNY! She is wonderful. Happy birthday, Mimi!! We love you so much!!!
What a sweet way to start our What’s Up Wednesday, right? I feel very blessed to have such a close relationship with all of my grandparents.
Okay, here’s what’s up today…
Over the weekend, I went to Mexico with 7 of my besties. It was such a special time for us to getaway together!
I just love my girlfriends so much. I felt so blessed to be able to spend a few days away with them.
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
Um, anyone else watching those Hallmark movies this fall? I recorded two of them over the weekend and on Monday night, Kensington and I curled up and watched Falling for Vermont and it was so cute! It was light, sweet, happy and pretty predictable (but that’s okay, right?!). Anyone else ready for their Christmas movies?! 🙂
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
…and I’m in love with it 🙂 . I saw these pumpkins at my regular grocery store and this one weighed about 80 pounds. I knew it needed a spot on my porch…
…see it next to Smith. I’m obsessed with all things “pumpkin” right now. If you missed the post I did last week where I shared pics of my house decorated for fall, you can see that HERE.
Pumpkins just make me HAPPY!
I don’t think I’m dreading this…it’s just something that stinks right now…MY ALLERGIES! Urg! Anyone else? What do you take?? I need some new tricks. My daily allergy medicine is just not cutting it. My eyes are itchy and I’m losing my voice. I’m so over these fall allergies. If you have some magic remedies…I’m all ears.
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
How pretty is this?! We stayed at Secrets Maroma Beach Resort over the weekend and LOVED it! My girlfriend just took this shot one evening, and I thought she captured it beautifully! I am working on sending people to a lot of pretty places like this right now AND lots of cruises too! (And let’s be honest, a lot of Walt Disney World as well!) 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! I know we sure had the best time on our trip 🙂 .
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
The State Fair of Texas starts on Friday!! Eeeeeeks! I’ve been going to the fair every year since I was born, so it’s very much a tradition in our family. My grandmother loves to tell this story about how in September 1956, she and my grandfather went to the fair and sat on the bench to discuss the fact that she was 8 months pregnant and how the next year, they would be bringing a baby to the fair. Well…the next September rolled around and she says they sat on the same bench and stared at each other in disbelief because THEY HAD TWO BABIES. My mom and her brother are Irish twins 🙂 . Ha! So, needless to say, it’s something the whole family looks forward to and we can’t wait to visit again this year!!
My September Book Review will be tomorrow, and it’s a good one!!! If you missed my August Book Review…
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
I’m listening to lots of baseball!! We are thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis close to making it to the playoffs, so I’m watching the games with lots of anticipation. Come on Red Sox!!!!!
A random assortment of things…
First up, this dress. Dress plus booties equals outfit completed. Easy as that! I like this dress a lot because the fabric is a little heavier, so it’s very “fall” and if I throw on a pair of tights, it can be “winter” too.
And this top is one of my new faves!! The sleeves are so cute and it is so easy to just throw on and wear. It comes in four different colors. Once again, I paired it with jeans and flats along with a cute necklace from Stella & Dot. I was leaving the gym, so excuse the poor pic 😉 .
And I’m still having a moment with fall scarves. There’s this leopard one, and then look at this one that I just ordered…
So cute, right?! I ordered it HERE.
And then, this one is back in stock…
I love this one so much!!
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
We have a lot of sports stuff this weekend. A baseball game on Friday night and then two flag football games on Saturday morning. I love watching this kid play sports!
And how small does Madeley look in this picture?!?!
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
I think that about covers everything!
I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!
Oh my gosh! I am like having a moment about this. I love Will and Grace and still enjoy the reruns, so I about flipped my lid when I heard they were coming back for an encore season. Side note: do these people not age? What are they eating? What magic lotion are they putting on their faces??? I must know! They all four look AMAZING! The premiere of this new season is tomorrow night…I CAN’T WAIT!
Okay! That’s What’s Up Wednesday today! If you blogged too, make sure you link up below.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
