Happy What’s Up Wednesday!
As Andrew and I make our way home from beautiful New England (seriously, why don’t we live here?!), I have a fun Wednesday post for you!
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.
If you blogged along with Sheaffer and me, make sure you link up below!
Have a wonderful Wednesday, friends!!!
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
Um, Andrew and I ate a TON of delicious food! I will do a recap post later…but geez, we have eaten well this week!
If you need something very delicious and VERY “end of October”, please make these this week…
…my Jack-o-lantern Joes! It’s a sloppy joe inside a little pumpkin. These are so easy to make (truly!) and VERY festive!! Your family and friends will love this recipe!!
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Well, it’s been such a bittersweet time these last few weeks thinking about my Mimi…
…she was seriously the life of the party and just the most wonderful grandma. My grandpa, dad and his sisters opened her “after I pass, this is what I want my memorial service to look like” envelope and well, it’s pretty special. I think it will be a beautiful day in her honor. This is really hard. This part of getting older is really, really hard.
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
I am so excited to go home and open my mail because look what has arrived at my house…
…Sheaffer’s new holiday bracelet collection!!!!! Eeeeeeeeeks!!!!
Sheaffer has been wearing this collection around the last month or so, and I’ve tried it all on, layered it, and loved it! I’ve loved all of her collections, but this one is by far my fave! There is gold, silver, a little bling, a little pearl…pieces that stand alone or layer beautifully. I LOVE IT!
I’m going to head home and show you my favorite pieces after I open up my mail, but it officially launches today, and it’s currently BOGO no code, so if you’re ready to start shopping, you should! These would make fabulous pieces to wear at holiday get togethers, but they would also make fabulous gifts this holiday season too!! I. LOVE. THEM!
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Andrew and I went to Vermont to celebrate my birthday! I got a “fall girl turns 40” day on Monday and loved every minute of it! We’re heading home now, but I wish we could have taken Vermont with us. It was GORGEOUS!
5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
All the laundry when I get home.
Do we think those four kids did their laundry while we were away?
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Erika and I are going to recap our Disney trip and maybe even do a podcast episode on it too! Those items are both on my “need to do” list!
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
I’m just going to leave this here.
Fa la la la la!
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
My October Book Review will be out next week! I wanted to finish up my current read before I posted it, so stay tuned for that at the beginning of November.
In the meantime, my mom told me that I must start binge watching…
…30 Rock and oh my word, it’s HYSTERICAL!
Why am I just now watching this show?!
I’m catching it on Netflix now, but geez, I should have been watching it in primetime.
It’s so funny, so light, so easy to watch. It’s the perfect enjoy while I’m eating my lunch/putting on my makeup/folding laundry show.
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Have I already mentioned this? I have been having a mad love affair with…
…Billy Joel lately.
I love me any singer/songwriter and for some reason, Mr. Joel has really spoken to my heart this fall. I’ve been listening on Pandora quite a bit!!
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
Give me all the layers! All. Of. Them. 🙂
I love me a layer 🙂 .
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Oh yeah, Halloween is here!
We’re all very excited about it 🙂 !
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
When we went to Boston in September, my mom told me that I had to get one of these travel makeup bags. I had seen them before but was concerned my makeup would get broken or damaged just inside this big bag. My mom insisted I was wrong, so I ordered one…
…and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! I will never travel with my makeup in another bag again. This is the most amazing thing ever. Ha! I just put all of my makeup and brushes inside, cinch it up, pack it and then when I arrived in both Disney and Boston, it easily opened and it was SO EASY to see everything and get ready. It was so easy that a few times, the thought crossed my mind that I should just leave it like this for when I’m at home. Nothing was damaged and everything was so easy to see and use. This would make a fun white elephant or stocking stuffer gift this year too! I LOVE IT! It comes in so many other colors and patterns too. I picked black, but there are so many other options!
I am out of here, friends! I am taking tomorrow off but will see you back here on FRIDAY!! I hope you have a wonderful time until we meet again!
If you blogged WUW today too, make sure you link up below!
Sending lots of end of October love from my house to yours!! xx
