Hi Y’all! It’s time for What’s Up Wednesday which means it is the last Wednesday of the month. I can’t believe October is almost over.
Today I am linking up with Shay, Sheaffer and Mel for their fun link-up. Every month we answer these questions:
1. What We’re Eating This Week
I’ll just be real honest here and say, lots of fast food. Ugh. I haven’t made it to the grocery store this week.
2. What I’m Reminiscing About
It’s Halloween on Tuesday! This year we found everyone’s costume without any crazy drama. I did have to order Jojo’s because he wanted a very specific clown mask. What in the world? I miss the days where they wore cute costumes. Just look at my sweet babies…
3. What I’m Loving
I am loving the cooler weather! It finally feels like fall in Georgia.
4. What We’ve Been Up To
Our CrossFit gym is celebrating our anniversary all month-long. We divided into teams and have been working hard all month to accumulate points. We’ve had a great time!
We also celebrated our anniversary with a scavenger hunt, crossfit style. We went all over our small town. So much fun!
5. What I’m Dreading
This one is always hard. I can’t think of anything that I’m dreading. Maybe Christmas shopping?? I know, I know. I’m the weird one, but Christmas shopping stresses me out.
6. What I’m Working On
Laundry laundry laundry! Ha! No, I’m kidding. Maybe.
Earlier this month we went to Hilton Head Island for Fall Break and then we had painters at our house for a couple of days. I can’t take a day off when it comes to laundry so a whole weekend really put me behind. I’m working on getting caught up and not stressing about it.
7. What I’m Excited About
Basketball! Football is over and now it’s time for basketball. Don’t get me wrong, we love football around here but when it’s over it’s over and we move on.
The girls are playing ball through our local rec. department. They are both on “big” girl teams this year so I’m excited to watch them play.
Jojo is playing with his travel team in a local league during the winter. He’s a 5th grader playing on a 6th grade team which makes me a little nervous. He did the same last year as a 4th grader and improved tremendously.
I’ve been reminding Jojo of this quote. Some days he’s not very excited about practicing and going to lessons. I know he’s young, but I want to instill the practice of practicing. We can’t just count on our natural ability to do things. We have to practice and work hard.
8. What I’m Watching/Reading
I am working on finishing up Of Mess and Moxie by Jen Hatmaker. My goal was to be done by now, but I am not a fast reader.
I’m also doing a virtual bible study through my Facebook page and blog for the book, Church of the Small Things by Melanie Shankle. We started the study on Sunday and it will go for six weeks.
As far as what I’m watching…everything ha!
Keeping Up with the Kardashians
is my guilty pleasure. This is Us
is so good. Joseph and I watch Survivor
together. We’ve watched it for almost 10 years. Riverdale
is on its second season. If you liked Pretty Little Liars
, you will love this show. You can’t do Thursdays without Greys
and How to Get Away with Murder.
And I am loving American Housewife.
It is such a funny show!
I think I realized why I can’t finish a book ha! Yes, I watch a lot of shows. There are a few more that I watch here and there, but these are my favorites. Thank goodness for the ability to record episodes.
9. What I’m Listening To
We sang this song at church on Sunday and it’s been on repeat this week.
When I crank my car it will randomly select songs from my music library. These were a couple of the random selections. Took me back in time!
10. What I’m Wearing
Lots of plaid shirts and jeans. I’m excited to add in my boots now that it feels like fall.
I’m wearing my Born Primitive Halloween Shorts and my new sweatshirt. You can read all about Born Primitive here. Use my BFF’s coupon code Sanders15 for 15% off of your purchase.
I also bought this new sports bra from them and love it.
This shirt came from one of our local boutiques, Polished Chic. I got so many compliments at church about it.
Earlier this year, a blogger posted a pic of the cutest house slippers. They were gold and sparkly, but when I went to order them they had sold out. While I was at Target yesterday, I decided to walk through the shoes and came across these. I was so excited until I noticed that they were for little girls. But I decided to try on a large just to see and they fit! They are super comfy and so adorable. Oh and only $17.99 since they are “kids” sizes. I am a size 7 in women’s shoes and these fit perfectly. Aren’t they adorable!?
I love my slippers, but I also love a good, comfy robe. I wear one every single day. I needed a new one and found this one while we were on vacation. The brand is Calvin Klein and it is super soft. I bought it at TJ Maxx in Hilton Head.
11. What I’m Doing This Weekend
On Friday, I am going to a friend’s house for a Cabi Party.
Saturday is the first Saturday since August that we do not have football. Joseph’s Aunt Rose is hosting her annual Halloween Party. She throws the best parties!
Sunday we will go to church. It’s dress up day for the kiddos so they get to wear their costumes to church. Although, I told Mary and Jojo they would need to pick a non-scary outfit to wear.
12. What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month
Joseph and I will celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary on December 11th. We always take a few days to get away and enjoy some time to ourselves. I am super thankful for my sister who holds down the fort for us at home. We normally go the second weekend in December, but this year we are leaving at the end of next month. We decided to go with a tropical trip instead of going to Grove Park Inn like we’ve done the past couple of years. I’ll miss going to GPI. It’s always a great trip but I’m excited to change it up this year.
13. What Else is New
I think I covered it all!
Happy Wednesday friends! Thanks for reading.
