Happy What’s Up Wednesday, friends!
You guys, my favorite month of the year is almost over. Why was August 155 days long and yet September has flown by?
Here’s the good news though…even though my favorite month is coming to an end, my second favorite month is next 🙂 .
I’m giddy about October.
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…
On Monday night, we had my SLOPPY JOE STUFFED SPUDS.
Last night, Andrew made us CLASSIC CHEESEBURGERS before Smith’s game and then tonight, I’m making a *new* recipe.
If you’re into your air fryer (and you know we are totally into ours!), make sure you head over and take a look at my favorite AUTUMN AIR FRYER RECIPES today too like…
…our AIR FRYER PANCAKE DONUTS and…
Awwwwww! I love this picture so much! This was them! THEY WERE ALWAYS LAUGHING!! You guys, today would have been my Mimi’s birthday. I think of them both every single day…but today, I am thinking of her extra.
Call, visit, hug and love on those sweet grandparents of yours as often as you can. Life goes by quickly.
You guys, I know that basically everyone on the internet already had THESE SLIPPERS, but they’re new to me, and I love them!
They’re just light and super easy to wear. I bought them just for us to have in Mexico, but right now, as I sit here in McKinney, they’re still on my feet…
If you’re looking for a really lightweight, easy to wear, inexpensive yet adorable pair of slippers, here you go 🙂 .
Lots of family time watching sporting events (please note Smith’s smile, we’re going to talk about it again in a minute).
We had the varsity football game on Friday night…
…where this week, we sat on the visitors side of our stadium and played one of our other McKinney high schools.
We love our Friday night lights!
Then on Saturday…
…we watched Mades play volleyball and then…
…we watched Ashby play soccer. What a great way to spend a Saturday!
I now wake up and dread this stupid weather.
For the love, Texas! Enough already!
You know my boy is particular about what pics I share and what I say regarding his existence in this world, but he did say I could absolutely share this…we decided to visit a new to us orthodontist in August, and this kid is LOVING his new orthodontic treatment. I will make a long story short…but between my four kids, we have four orthodontists. Yes. It’s stupid. In August, Smith and I went to visit one of them to begin his Phase 2 of braces (he had Phase 1 about 18 months ago). We went, it was a lovely appointment, we scheduled his braces to be put on the next day, but he just felt OFF about it. In the car, he expressed his concerns and asked if we could please get another opinion. Even though this was “the plan”, I went back inside and cancelled our appointment, and then I called Sheaffer who I knew loved their ortho. I called, got him in that very week and now, Smith is doing his Phase 2 with the new orthodontist and LOVES it. He is at such peace about the new treatment plan which, for him, includes Invisalign (you can’t even tell, right?!).
I say all of this to say, I know for me as a mom, I often have “a plan” that I want to implement for each kid, but they’re all so different and have such different needs that I need to check myself and make sure I’m not trying to “cookie cutter” them all into the same thing (i.e. braces treatment plans). We are thrilled with the new ortho, his office and Smith is so excited to be moving in this new direction. If you’re local, I couldn’t recommend them enough. You can find their info HERE.
And right this very minute as I type this…
…I’m watching/listening to this classic 🙂 .
Which also answers the question to…
Awwwww! How sweet are these pictures of my clients on their Viking River Cruise!
This was just last week in the Alps when they were on an excursion! So fun, right?!
You guys, they are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary! Isn’t that AMAZING?! Bravo, bravo!
I love helping clients find the perfect vacation just for them, and let me tell you, this couple LOVED their river cruise. If you are interested in a Viking River Cruise through Europe too (or any cruise or vacation destination), reach out! We would love to help you too!
You guys, I pulled out my awesome skirt for our trip to Mexico!
I wore this skirt earlier this year in the DR and loved it so much that I brought it on this last vacation too. It’s under $25, comes in so many fun colors and prints, doesn’t wrinkle and is comfy! Love it!
Other than that, this month, I’m recapping all the great things I found to wear in September because so many of them are on sale!!
Here’s a little look back…
THIS TOP is too cute too!
I mean, someone hand me a PSL and send me to the pumpkin patch! How cute is THIS SWEATER?! And you know me, it is soft with ZERO itch. I don’t do itchy AT ALL.
An OVER-SIZED FLANNEL for the win!
THESE JEANS…they come in different lengths! I buy them in “short” but they come in extra short, regular, long and extra long too. Woohoo! If you’re my size (5’3″), shorter, taller or much taller, I highly recommend! They have a great amount of stretch and are so comfy too! FYI, MY TOP IS HERE 🙂 .
This sweatshirt gave me all the happy feels for fall.
I’m actually wearing THIS TOP right this second…
So cute, right?!
How cute is this oversized tee?! TREAT OR TREAT is right!
And speaking of cute…how cute is MY PULLOVER?!
I just love this one so very much!
It has one big pocket across the front (that zips up so it’s not bulky) and the thumb thing too (what is that called?!). It comes in other colors and is an Old Navy find! Woohoo! I bought it in xs (runs TTS). Such a good find!
You guys, YOU KNOW I LOVE THEIR PUFFER VESTS and right now, THEY’RE ON SALE! I have been buying/wearing/sharing Gap/Old Navy’s PUFFER VESTS since 2015, friends. The quality is outstanding, they last forever, and you can wash and dry them a million times. I know you can pay much more for a good puffer vest, but I’ve yet to find one I love more than THESE.
I bought THIS MARINER SHIRT to wear all seasons. I love me a quality striped top.
And that my friends, wraps up this month’s edition of WHAT’S UP WEDNESDAY!

I hope you all had a wonderful September! I’m so excited to see what October has in store!
Have the best day! xx
