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!
It’s Thanksgiving Eve!!!
Anyone else super excited?!?!
We’re having our first unconventional Thanksgiving this year. This year, we’re celebrating both Christmas and Turkey Day with Andrew’s family all at once. Dinner tonight is our traditional Christmas Eve dinner along with presents and then tomorrow, we’ll celebrate Thanksgiving. That’s the best of both worlds, right? Other than the first year we were married, this is the only time we’ve ever been home on Thanksgiving (we’re typically at one of our parents’ houses), so we’re enjoying that too. Speaking of Thanksgiving…
All the fun we had this fall. As pumpkin season wraps up and Christmas begins, I’m thinking about what a sweet autumn we had as a family. I just LOVE this season!
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
Oh goodness, this dress has a surprise inside that I was not expecting when I ordered it. Wait for it…it feels like a sweatshirt. #amen
I bought this dress in black (it comes in two other colors too) and when it arrived and I tried it on, it felt like cozy pajamas. I mean…YES! It was 34 when we left for church that morning, so I wore it with tall boots from last year and my heavy coat. (Similar boots HERE.) Then later that night, we went to dinner and I wore it like this…
Also, that clutch I keep talking about (because I love it)…
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
It’s Thanksgiving break, so we’ve been staying up later, having sleepovers in our room, spending time on our downtown square and stuff like that! We’re enjoying this little stay-cation 🙂 .
Right this minute, not a darn thing.
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Well, not only am I planning other people’s vacations, but I’m planning my own as well. How in the world are we going to top Alaska from this past summer? We’re going to try 🙂 .
Right now, Mix and Match Travel Agency is planning trips in 2018 for Mexico, Walt Disney World and cruises all over the world for new clients (we send existing clients anywhere!). Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re ready to plan your 2018 trip too.
Here’s something else I’m working on right now…
FIVE DAYS OF FABULOUS.
Get ready, girls. Sheaffer and I have gifts to give and fools to make of ourselves 😉 . ‘Tis the season! It all starts this MONDAY!!
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
BRING. IT. ON, CHRISTMAS.
My November Book Review will be on Tuesday! If you missed my October Book Review…
This is such a good time of year to read!!
And what I’ve been watching…
I cannot stop watching those Christmas movies. They’re mushy, predictable, cheesy and absolutely perfect to watch in lieu of all the other negative things you’ll find on TV these days. They’re just HAPPY, and I’m at a point in life where I just want happy.
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Seriously, I basically listen to it in my sleep 🙂 .
Lots of holiday red…
…and red heels too 🙂 .
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Home for the Holidays in downtown McKinney! This was us last year…and we are PUMPED about this year too!
I’m looking forward to so many things…like my annual recipe exchange!
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
I think we covered everything!
Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours! I’m sending you so much love this holiday week!! See you Friday for my favorite holiday finds!! xoxoxo
