Happy Wednesday, friends!! Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I am so excited to get together with our families for lunch and then dinner.
This month has flown by!
As always, on the last Wednesday of every month, Sheaffer and Shay host a link up where everyone shares what’s going on right now. As Shay says, “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.”
So let’s get started!
1. WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
Turkey, turkey and more turkey!
On Thanksgiving day we always go to Joseph’s Nana and Papa’s house for lunch and then do dinner at our house with my family.
My mom makes her traditional turkey. It’s delicious! Every year, my dad would have us take his picture of his first bite.
Gosh, I miss him so much!
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
These pictures popped up in my Facebook memories from three years ago! Look how sweet they are!
3. WHAT I’M LOVING:
Lately I’ve been going by Sonic and getting a Coke Zero with Lime in it. Have you tried it? It’s sooooo good!
I talk about these candles all the time, I just love them. They last a long time and smell amazing!! Winter White is my current favorite.
4. WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
We finished up Track and Soccer and went straight into basketball! Three kiddos and their practice and game schedules will keep you busy, busy!
5. WHAT I’M DREADING:
I’m dreading my kiddos going back to school. Don’t get me wrong, I am so thankful that we are still in school doing face to face learning. But I sure do love it when they are home and sports practices aren’t taking up every single night of the week.
6. WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
A couple of ladies and I started this Advent study this week. I’m hosting it virtually and with a couple of ladies in town. So far I am loving it!
7. WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
We had family pictures a couple of weekends ago and my friend and photographer sent me this sneak peek.
I love it so much and I can’t wait to see the rest!
The day started off so dreary and foggy. I was super bummed that the sun wouldn’t be out, but it made an appearance and it was beautiful!
8. WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
This book right here. I am so thankful for it. It is speaking directly to my heart and it’s exactly what the Lord knew I needed.
A couple of nights ago, I saw this series on Netflix and started watching it. I remember watching it as a kid but I know I missed a lot of episodes since we didn’t have DVR back then. Oh my goodness! I didn’t realize how risqué it was!
I think I’m liking it more as an adult than I did as a kid.
9. WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
This podcast episode was so good. It’s Annie interviewing Lysa TerKeurst about her new book, Forgiving What You Can’t Forget.
The truths they share and just the wisdom they give is amazing. I’ve struggled with some hurts in the last couple of years that I still have a hard time with. And this podcast spoke straight to my heart. I can’t wait to read the book!
This was another episode that I loved. Sadie Robertson interviewed Kari Jobe about her new album, The Blessing. Oh my goodness. Y’all, go listen to this episode. They talk about the story behind the song and it’s so awesome to hear how it all came about.
Speaking of Kari Jobe, have you listened to the new album? Soooo good!!
10. WHAT I’M WEARING:
It’s finally sweater weather around here so I’m wearing lots of sweaters. But this is pretty much my everyday mom uniform, ha! The fast and free Lululemon leggings are my favorite. They are actually on sale right now!
This sweater from Target is so fun! I love the color. I also bought it in a really pretty Christmas green!
I am also loving these boots! I am so excited that knee boots are back in style.
I wore this dress a couple of times this month. It’s so comfortable! You can throw a chunky sweater over it during the cooler months. I also wore my dupe Golden Goose shoes with it one day.
Here are the boots, again!
I am so excited about this dress! Loverly Grey shared it on Instagram and I bought it immediately. Y’all. This dress is less than $40. It’s so fun and something you can wear to your Holiday parties.
11. WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
I bought a new foyer table so I’ve been trying to shop for items to go on it. I’m also working on a couple of small decor additions and changes around my house.
12. WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Everything that December brings. I’m looking forward to embracing the season and celebrating the true reason of the season.
13. WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
I think I pretty much covered it all!
If you’re still reading, thank you haha!
I hope you have a fantastic Wednesday!!
