What's Up Wednesday

Thanks for joining me today for What's Up Wednesday! I'm linking up with Mel, Shay, and Sheaffer to share some of my favorite moments from this past month. Please say hello in the comments, and click on the links to follow along with me on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, or Bloglovin'.

What we're eating this week...
We totally cheated on our vow to not eat at/drive through any restaurants! Trying to get back on track this week but still have something super yummy, we've got my favorite lime chicken recipe planned for tomorrow night. Come back to see me tomorrow and link-up for my Try It Thursday recipe. I'll be sharing my Nana's pudding- it's delish!

What I'm reminiscing about...
With Halloween approaching, I've been thinking a lot about our past costumes. I had so much fun putting together this Show and Tell Tuesday link-up about Halloween! Can't wait to share our family costumes with you next week!

What I'm loving...
This week is Red Ribbon Week, and if I partake in the daily theme, I get to wear jeans! If you're a teacher, you feel me, right!?

What we've been up to...
I love cheering my kids on at their soccer games, but I'll be so happy when practices and games are OVER! You can check out my most recent weekend recap HERE.

 What I'm dreading...
Not dreading much! While I'm a total summer girl, I do love the magic of the holiday season, so I'm really looking forward to Halloween, Thanksgiving, my birthday, and Christmas! :) Is it sad that I haven't finished our costumes yet, but I've already purchased a new pair of nutcrackers?!

What I'm working on...

What I'm excited about...
I'm excited to trick or treat with my kids on Monday! I love that my kids are so into going as a family theme, and I can't wait to share our pictures with you next week!


What I'm reading...
So I'm not much of a reader anymore during the school year. I usually am able to pick up a historical book or a quick fiction read during the summer, but during the school year, most of my reading is blogs and magazines. Other than my hosts, some of my favorite Texas girls to read are Cassie at Hi Sugarplum!, Megan at Honey We're Home, and Veronika at Veronika's Blushing

What I'm listening to...
I've mentioned these books before, but they really are great for building emerging readers' confidence. Trip started with these books, and now Ari is digging in, too! 

What I'm wearing...
I'll share some details next Wednesday for the Pleated Poppy's link-up, but here's a recent favorite outfit. 

What I'm doing this weekend...
Baking, watching Halloween movies, and shopping! (Oh, and finishing those darned costumes!)

What I'm looking forward to...
I can't wait to celebrate the Christmas season! Ari was recently asking me when we could buy our chocolate Advent calendars. They're not as fancy as THESE, the chocolate isn't that great, but they always remind me of my Nana! 

What else is new...
Not much else is new- I'm sucked into the season finales of all of the current Housewives! I have a feeling that some of the originals (Jacqueline and Vicki) may not be invited back next year.

Question of the month: What is your favorite Halloween memory/picture/tradition?
I love to frame pictures of our Halloween costumes to display on the mantle during the season. I think our costume as Prince's greatest hits is my favorite! I'm lucky to have a husband that gives into my every whim! If you need some last minute costume ideas, check out my Halloween post HERE

Come back tomorrow and link up with me to share your favorite recipe of the week for my Try It Thursday! See you soon!


  1. Surprisingly I've never seen Real Housewives. I feel as if i start watching that my brain will turn to jello lol! Those tacos look delicious. It's ok if you cheated a bit! They looked totally worth it. Oh and that purple rain costume is pretty clever! I need to tell my mother in law about it. She would totally do it!

    1. Thank you! I love the Housewives- makes me feel better about myself! :)

  2. I really love all your family costumes! I can't wait to see what this year's theme is! And really like your outfit!

    1. Thank you! You all need to teach me how to take better outfit pictures- I haven't mastered the outfit selfie pic yet!


Hi friends! Let me know what you think! I'd love to hear from you!
