It’s the last What’s Up Wednesday of 2017!
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!
I cannot believe this is the last WUW of the year. Where has the time gone? It’s true what they say…the days are long, but the years are short. I kind of want time to stop.
As we wrap up 2017, here’s a little look at what’s up with me today. Wishing you the warmest Wednesday, friends. xo
I feel like it’s a lot of party food this week. Whether it’s sweet or savory, we’re in full “party food” mode right now. If you’re eating the same thing this week, make sure you check out my 12 Savory & Sweet Christmas Recipes!
Plus…did you see this recipe today…
We have been talking a lot about Christmas 2014 around here. Just three days after Christmas that year, we left to get Ashby. It was SUCH an exciting time!!! We’ve been trying to share with Ashby about how excited we all were that year and how we could not wait for Christmas to be over so that we could head to China.
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
It’s a dress that feels like a sweatshirt. Basically, it’s amazing.
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Livin’ our best December life! We’ve been spending a lot of time on our town square because it’s just so darn FESTIVE!
That moment when I have to take down my Christmas decorations. If it were acceptable, I’d leave them up year around.
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Not a darn thing.
We’re, of course, handling trips in progress right now over at Mix and Match Travel Agency, but other than that, we’re “closed” for the Christmas holiday and will reopen the week of January 8th. At that time, we will be accepting trips departing after April 1 for Walt Disney World, cruises and Mexican all-inclusives. In the meantime, I’m enjoying the time off with my family. We have a fun trip planned and are so excited for some time away together!
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Last year, we headed to NYC after Christmas and decided that it was so much fun traveling right after the big day that we’re going to do it again this year too. I’m ready for lots of cozy family time!!
My 2017 Book Review (where I recap all of the books I read this year plus name my favorite!) will be on January 5! If you missed my 2016 Book Review…
…you can see it HERE.
You can see all of the books and read my reviews for this year HERE.
And what I’ve been watching…
…can’t stop. I love this show!!! I’m so glad so many of you suggested it to me this year!!
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Seriously, I basically listen to it in my sleep 🙂 .
Right this very minute…
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
On Friday night, we have one last “framily” night with the Slaughters, on Saturday night, we are having our Christmas Eve Eve dinner and then on Sunday and Monday, my house is going to be crawling with family as we celebrate Christmas together!
This handsome boy turns eight. Eight! How can that be?!?! He’s getting a very special birthday celebration this year!!
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Whew! I think that’s it!!
Why are guy gifts so hard?!? I will say that for Father’s Day this year, I gave Andrew a smoker…and it’s the perfect gift because he loves smoking different kinds of meats and such and I enjoy the yummy return on my investment 🙂 . #winning #whendadmakesdinner
