WHAT’S UP WEDNESDAY – OCTOBER 2017

Linking up with Shay today for What’s Up Wednesday!

WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK
We’ve been pretty basic this week as we try to clean out the fridge/pantry before we leave for vacation next week! Chicken Club sandwiches, tacos, breakfast burritos, roasted chicken sausage/brussels sprouts/potatoes, and I’m sure we’ll have our traditional pizza on Friday!

WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT

My little Charlie Brown! I can not believe it’s been almost a year since this picture. I think Camden will “get” Halloween at least a little bit this year and I can not wait to take him trick-or-treating!

WHAT I’M LOVING
My Pandora Christmas radio station. My husband makes soo much fun of me for still using Pandora to listen to music sometimes but my Christmas station is just so perfectly curated, I can’t give it up. My last few plays have been Michael Buble, Bing Crosby, NSYNC, Straight No Chaser, and Nat King Cole – all the greats!

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO

All the fall things, of course! I post about our trip to the pumpkin patch and all the fall celebrations in my post on Monday. You can read it here :)

WHAT I’M DREADING

Dread is such a strong word but maybe taking a one-year-old on an air-plane? I have a feeling it’s not going to be all naps and nursing on this one :)

WHAT I’M WORKING ON

I got to WORK yesterday selling stuff on Facebook! We are clearing out our guest bedroom to convert it into a play room in the next few weeks. Bye-bye toys all over my living room! (Just kidding, I know there will still be toys in my living room. But they won’t live there anymore, you know?) Gotta make room for my Christmas tree!

I also made an Instagram to clean out my closet! (Yes, it was a busy day.) If you are interested in small/medium women’s clothes go check out @shoprachelemily.

WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT

Halloween! I guess I should get to work on my son’s costume, huh? We are heading to Orlando on Thursday of next week, so I’m obviously super excited about that, too! My husband has to work a few of the days, but we will be squeezing a day at Animal Kingdom and a day at Magic Kingdom in as well :)

WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING
Nathan and I are watching The Challenge, Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder, and I’m watching Law and Order: SVU. So much less TV watching in our house these days. This is what happens when you can’t stay up past 9PM, ha! I’m reading Famous in Heaven and at Home with some girls and it’s really good! I got this book as an audio-book from my library yesterday and I’m loving it! If you haven’t read the I Heart Series in general I would recommend them.

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO
See above about the Pandora station and audio-book. Throw in some Jingle Bell Rock and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood song’s in the car (Camden’s current faves) and now you know the soundtrack playing on repeat in my head all day!

WHAT I’M WEARING

These jeans I got from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! Great color, high-waisted, stretchy – literally perfection! They are still on sale for the same price I paid at the anniversary sale so go go go go go order yourself a pair!

WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND
Working a couple of Halloween parties and hopefully heading to Boo at the Zoo with my boys! Give me all the festive things.

WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH
Our vacation technically begins in November, so that of course, but also THANKSGIVING! The best, most low pressure holiday of them all that kicks off the most wonderful, wonderful time of the year!!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THANKSGIVING SIDE
So hard to pick just one but I think I would have to say green bean casserole. Or homemade mac ‘n cheese. I also live for a delicious roll. I can’t do it. I can’t pick just one!

    We have pizza on Friday nights, too! And I’ve also been jamming to Christmas music. It’s so much fun! Um, can you please come do this for my clothes?! I need to do it so badly. We don’t have a guest bedroom or a play room and I cannot WAIT to move to a house that has one…so many toys are strewn all over my house and it’s just like we live in a storage facility for toys, not a house. 😉

    I can’t wait to see what Camden is going to be for Halloween!

    I think homemade mac n’ cheese is my fav Thanksgiving side too. However, we go to Jesse’s Aunt’s house for Thanksgiving now and… no homemade mac n’ cheese… no mac n’ cheese at all. Last year there wasn’t even mashed potatoes. What is Thanksgiving dinner without mac n’ cheese and mashed potatoes?! Sooo I might just have to start making a mini Thanksgiving meal to come home to after we visit their house b/c everything they make just isn’t the same and doesn’t feel Thanksgiving-y.

    I love hearing what you’ve been up to! Those jeans look so good on you, girl! Also the 4th of July is my favorite holiday for the same reasons you love Thanksgiving–super low pressure 😉
