What's Up Wednesday

Every month I miss out on What's Up Wednesday because of Recipe Club, so today's post can be considered either really late for last month or really early for next month :)




What We're Eating This Week
This week we're eating Crockpot Lasagna and we're also eating out for Dave's Dad's birthday.  (Hello, clean kitchen!!!)  I've also been eating WAY too much candy corn and peanuts.


What I'm Reminiscing About
This week I've been reminiscing about all things pumpkin patch.  I will NEVER forget the first year that Dave and I took Luke to the pumpkin patch and it was a muddy DISASTER!

I had picturesque fantasies of sunny skies, crisp breezes and adorable pumpkin pictures... and instead we got mud and an uncooperative 18  month old ;)  #momlife



The next year I was pregnant with Mason and we skipped the patch and headed to the arboretum instead.




I remember being SO HOT and a smidge hormonal and after chasing around a toddler all morning trying to get the perfect pumpkin picture (BECAUSE ALL PREGNANT MAMA WANTED WAS A CUTE PUMPKIN PIC!), my favorite picture from the day ended up being this one I snapped in the parking lot :)


What I'm Loving
I'm loving this leather wrap bracelet from Freed Outfitters.  If you love it to be sure to check out my Instagram today!  There MAY be a giveaway happening!!! :)



 What We've Been Up To
Lots of things including a trip to the dentist yesterday for Luke.  Mason and I have cleanings on Thursday, but we got to watch Luke do his like a CHAMP yesterday!  He was so excited to show the dentist his lost tooth and his loose tooth next to it. Such a big boy!



And Mason's day was made by a set of green vampire teeth (and mine was  made when he popped them in and crossed his eyes. I mean!)


What I'm Dreading
Another day in the heat! BOO!!!  It's supposed to be 97 degrees today.  MAKE IT STOP!!!

What I'm Working On
Christmas cards! Christmas cards! Christmas cards! WOO HOO
If you missed my post about cards, you can check it out HERE.



What I'm Excited About
Pumpkinville starts this week!  MCA runs the cutest little pumpkin patch EVER and I love volunteering, taking the kids up there to play and supporting the school all at the same time.  If you're local, be sure to check out Pumpkinville at Tucker Hill!  It's free and so fun!


 

What I'm Watching/Reading
I'm LOVING The Voice and Nashville!  I kind of lose interest in The Voice after the audition episodes, but the auditions are great :)

What I'm Listening To
I've been on an Anthem Lights kick this week.  So good!



And this has been our kitchen dance party song of choice...


What I'm Wearing
Like everyone else, I am LOVING all things plaid for Fall.  I love a good button down, BUT I tend to lean toward things that are a little less standard and a little more unique.  I picked up this plaid tunic and am loving the longer length in the back and the ruffle!  It's perfect for Fall and still a bit quirky :)  It's sized generously and I'm in a small and it's nice and flowy.





What I'm Doing This Weekend

Harvest Party! WOO HOO!!!  This was our crew last year, and I can't wait to see all the cute kiddos dressed up again this year!


What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month

Ummmm.... everything!  Open windows, pie, Thanksgiving break, annnndddd..... getting Christmas decorations out! EEEEK!



So, what's up with you this Wednesday??? :)

    1. LOVE Boyce Avenue!!! And there is nothing better than not having to clean the kitchen after you put the kids to bed, right? :)

  3. I can totally relate to the all-mama-wants-is-a-cute-picture! Picture worthy events are so much more fun once I have my pictures and the picture stress is gone. Yeah, I don't sound crazy at all! ;) And I am sooo excited for Christmas decor as well!

  9. I've never heard of Pumpkinville at Tucker Hill I am going to have to check them out, I'm always looking for something to take my girls to for Fall.
    And, I am so enjoying this warm weather we have been having, I'm not a fan of the cold weather so to me its a great time to be living here in Texas with the warmer temps.
