It’s a super fun What’s Up Wednesday because it’s the day before THANKSGIVING!
Bahahahaha! I mean, not me, we’re having an untraditional Thanksgiving meal this year (you can read about it HERE)! Tell me, what are you doing? Traditional or untraditional? Inquiring minds want to know 🙂 .
Okay, as always, 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.
Here we go…
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
Did you catch my Thanksgiving inspired Meal Planning Monday this week? It was my 400th MEAL PLANNING MONDAY! Make sure you check it out because several of the recipes are excellent with Turkey Day leftovers!
Also, make sure you check out yesterday’s post…
…for allllllllll of my Thanksgiving recipes in one place!!
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
For some reason this pic popped up on my phone the other day and melted my heart into a puddle. She was three. Ugh. Three! Look at that precious baby girl! She was (and is!) the SWEETEST!!!!!!
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
My phone case and THE MOST PERFECT POP SOCKET EVER. Like ever. In the history of the world. IT’S PERFECT FOR ME 🙂 .
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Enjoying our people this Thanksgiving break! It’s so nice to have everyone home together for the holiday break. I’m trying to soak it all up.
5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
It’s my favorite time of the year…I’m extra perky right now. Ha!
I guess you could say that I’m dreading when it’s over?
I just really love this season.
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Ohhhhhhhh friends! Sheaffer and I are busy working on this year’s Five Days of Fabulous!!
This year, we’re doing things differently, but we think you’ll LOVE IT! Stay tuned! The fun begins December 6th!
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving!!!
So many of my favorite things in one day!
We have such a great long weekend ahead with both sets of our parents, and I’m super pumped about it.
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
My November Book Review will happen next week! In the meantime, I’m watching allllllll the Hallmark Christmas movies!
Have you seen this one?
Ashby and I watched it over the weekend. It was SO CUTE!!! Please give me other recs so I can set my DVR!
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Right this minute? Frank Sinatra sing The Christmas Waltz 🙂 .
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
Lots of cozy finds! These Abercrombie sweaters (really, they feel more like a sweatshirt) are always ones I wear on repeat each and every season. They come in a variety of colors and patterns, but this neutral one spoke to me this year. They run TTS. Right now, Abercrombie is having a HUGE SALE too!! Of course, you know how much I love these boots too!
I shared this coat on Stories the other day! This was my first Bernardo purchase, and I was BLOWN AWAY by how nice it was (especially because it prices better than so many other quality puffer coats). I love that it has a fleece vest lining on the inside, the hood, the fleece lined pockets. I loved the length…seriously, so impressed! I bought TTS (xs) and think it fits well enough for a sweater layer underneath too. Win, win! You can find my hat HERE. It comes in other colors, but this color looked very November and December to me 🙂 .
Hellllllllllo fleece pullover hoodie. Yes, yes, yes! It’s so cozy, it’s a bit longer so it worked great with my leggings. Oh my word. Love. This would make a great holiday gift for girls of all ages. It also comes in black.
Another Abercrombie find 🙂 . How cozy is my sweater? Also on big time sale today! And so is…
…this one too! All of these Abercrombie finds come in multiple colors and run TTS. I bought them all in xs.
Finally, I’m loving this loungewear (also on sale!)…
…let’s be real, it’s not even really loungewear since I did wear it into church to drop off my kids at an event. It’s so cute, right?! This was my first time to wear their ribbed leggings and I loved them so much that I bought them in a second color (the taupe one). I was really blown away by the fit and quality of both the sweater/sweatshirt top and the leggings!! Both are on sale today too 🙂 .
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
SEE ABOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😉
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
That is it for today! If you blogged WUW today too, make sure you link up below!
We are off to enjoy this day before Thanksgiving! I will be back here again tomorrow, so come on back for my Black Friday finds.
From the bottom of my heart, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow. I love you ladies and want you all to have a wonderful holiday!
I’ll see you tomorrow. xo
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
Have a wonderful thanksgiving and time with your family!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
Erika Slaughter says
Happy Thanksgiving Eve, Friend!! That pic of Ashby is the sweetest! Melt my heart! Hope you have the best day tomorrow!
Have a great Thanksgiving with your family! Can I ask you what size you are wearing in the ribbed leggings and in the zippered loungewear top that you wore to church? It looks great on you!
Mix and Match Mama says
Both are xs! They run TTS!
I’ve been following along pre-Ashby, and what a throwback pic!! And I need that pop socket stat. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
Awesome meal you have planned. I also have never enjoyed the traditional Thanksgiving meal. Always have a nice meal but just what we enjoy!! I never like to say what I am cooking because it seemed unacceptable ?. Glad there are others like me. Happy thanksgiving. ???
My favorite hallmark movie this season has been “My Christmas Family Tree”!
I bought the aerie sweatshirt zip and love it! I think I might have to buy the leggings. I’m on the search for a good pair of leggings!
You need to watch the Nantucket Christmas Hallmark movie! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Shay! so GRATEFUL for this corner of the internet
Love a good Christmas Hallmark Movie! Reba McEntire Christmas in Tune looks really good! On this Weekend!
Thinking about your grandpa with his first Thanksgiving without his wife.
Mix and Match Mama says
Thank you so much!!!! He’s doing so well (all things considered), but I so appreciate your thoughts.
We eat traditional thanksgiving food…also I loved Shaeffer’s recap of your Charleston trip! That is where I live and ya’ll definitely hit a lot of good spots!!!?
Have you watched Love Hard? New and super cute ❤️?
Happy Thanksgiving! My family will be having two traditional Thanksgiving meals. One with my parents, then another with my in-laws?. As for Hallmark movies, we watched My Family Christmas Tree, and it was a sweet movie. Also, it’s an older one, but 12 Gifts of Christmas is good.
Happy Thanksgiving! The last Hallmark we all enjoyed was Next Stop, Christmas. We knew a lot of the locations as it was filmed in southern CT.
Michelle O says
You want Christmas movies to DVR…try Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, Lifetime, Up channel and GAC (Great American Channel). Between all of these and DVRing just the new movies, I am all set for all the Christmas movies I can handle! LOL.
My family will be having the traditional Thanksgiving dinner, but I will be having my first vegan-plant based dinner. I’m really looking forward to it!
I wish you and your family and blessed Thanksgiving.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! I hope you have the best day having untraditional food. 😉

Curious question – I need a new wallet – do you have recommendations? I have a lot of cards that I carry ( restaurant gift cards) and just cannot find one that olds everything so my cards slip in horizontally!!!
I’d love a suggestion – or a what’s up Wednesday!!! Many thanks! Love your blog – will start podcasts soon!
Beck & Bulow says
Sydney, do you think this could be made a day ahead, and then put in a buffet warmer? My mom and I are trying to be organized this year and do lots of prep ahead of time.
Hi! Can you link your necklace you are wearing in the Abercrombie white sweater (the bathroom picture)? Thank you!
Mix and Match Mama says
Yes!! It’s Kendra Scott. Let me track it down!
