Happy Happy What’s Up Wednesday !
It’s almost October.
Me too, Anne. Me too.
Today’s WUW has a random assortment. This month, Sheaffer is blogging something fun in her world, so make sure you check that out! For the rest of you who like to link up, please do so at the bottom of my post. We’re always so happy to have you participate!
Now, if you’re new to WUW, on the last Wednesday of every month, Sheaffer and I host this little linky party where we share what’s going on with us right now. It’s a little food, a little family, a little what we’re wearing, a little what we’re doing, a little what we’re watching and a little bit of everything else all in one post.
Let’s get started with…
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
Yes, yes, yes to meal planning! Do you meal plan? I have to do that or else when dinner comes around, I’m ordering pizza. You can see how I meal plan for the month HERE. You can also see this week’s Meal Planning Monday HERE. Tonight, we’re having this for dinner…
…the BEST slow cooker roast! My house already smells delicious!
Also, I don’t want to sound overly dramatic or anything but…
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Okay, I need your help. What should Smith be for Halloween this year? We are having a HARD time coming up with things! He says he’s too old to be superheros now (insert me crying), he doesn’t want to be a sports figure because that’s not really a costume (it’s what he wears all the time), and a lot of the movie characters you could dress up as, he hasn’t seen the movie. For instance, I told him he could be Maverick from Top Gun, but he’s like “it’s not fun if I’m not old enough to watch that movie”. True, true. Any ideas? I’ll take anything! What’s a good boy costume idea for an almost 10 year old?????
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
Thanks to a sweet reader’s suggestion, I bought this for Kensington’s birthday, and it’s been a HUGE hit! It’s from BeachGalPals on Etsy!
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Run, Ashby, run!
Guys, she’s doing GREAT at soccer!! She even scored her first goal last week!!! Our life right now is running from one sport to the next, but the kids are all having fun, so I can’t complain one bit!
5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
Ashby’s last surgery was without a doubt the hardest…so, I’m very much dreading her next one.
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Sometimes, my mom brain knows we need to accomplish 400 things a day (from homework to therapies to sports practices to household chores to dinner to on and on and on and on), and I get anxious when it’s not getting done (because I’m Type A and like to check things off my to-do list!), but I’m working on chilling out over some of that stuff. This is definitely an area that I need to improve upon.
WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
It’s Oktoberfest in McKinney this weekend!!! You guys know that this is one of my FAVORITE McKinney things to do, so I.AM.PUMPED. If you’re local, you should come check it out! It runs Friday through Sunday on our historic town square.
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
I’m finishing up my last book of the month so that I can share all of my good reads with you next Monday! Be on the lookout for my SEPTEMBER BOOK REVIEW then.
In the meantime, you should read one of these…
And I just finished Game of Thrones (you can read all about my thoughts on that show HERE!), so now, I think I’m going to take time off from binging shows until January. I think I’ll stick to holiday movies and/or Hallmark movies as my background noise between now and then. That being said, I think Hart of Dixie is next on my binge list!
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
See answer above 😉 .
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
Right this very minute? Here I am…
…that’s me still in my workout clothes on a Monday afternoon.
Other than that, my “uniform” is typically jeans, a top and a neutral pair of shoes…
On Friday, I rounded up four tops I’m loving! Two of them are 40% off right now, one is from Amazon and one is PERFECT for October!
And I want to take a minute to talk about the jeans in these pics above…
…okay, I was walking through Nordstrom and saw a camo pair of jeans that looked cute and when I went to pick them up, I put my hand down on the pair of jeans next to them and friends, they were so soft that I forgot all about the camo pair and ended up coming home with those jeans. I wore them FOUR DAYS IN A ROW LAST WEEK! Now, I know they’re pricey (I hate that!), but they are really the softest jeans I’ve ever had, and I wanted you to know. I have never heard of this brand before, but I’m now a huge fan. I bought them true to size and had them hemmed for my length (I’m 5’3″), so they’ll probably work great on taller girls too. And of course, I’m wearing them with these booties from last year 🙂 .
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Cheers to Oktoberfest!!
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
I need help! I posted these pic on IG a few weeks ago…
…and so many of you asked me where I got my kids’ Halloween pjs. Now, in those pics, Madeley is wearing this top with these pj pants while Smith is wearing these pjs…but my question for you is, where do you buy your kids’ holiday pjs? For over 10 years, I bought mine at Gymboree, but now that they’re out of business, I’m kind of clueless. Gymboree made the BEST Halloween/holiday pjs! Where else can I get some??? I’d love your suggestions!
Okay, that wraps up WUW for September! If you blogged today, make sure you link up below! I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday! xo
