What's Up Wednesday

 Today I'm linking up with  Shay and  Sheaffer to talk a little bit about what's been going on around here!

Jeni had us over last week and she made THE BEST SALAD EVER!  I immediately asked for  the recipe and have been making it ever since.  I don't really measure anything for the salad part - I've been throwing the components into a big container for lunch at school and then topping it with the dressing at lunch time.  SO SO SO GOOD!!!

Homecoming!  This week is homecoming week at school and I've had so many fun memories pop up on facebook the past month or so :) 

This cutie from last year...

2018 when there was a HUGE storm, the game was a washout and my kids got stuck at school with me setting up because there was so much water on the roads they were closed.  They were SO HAPPY when the leftover hotdogs from the cancelled concession stand showed up at school! hahaha

2017 and G in a hand-me-down mum from a sweet student...

2016 OMG...

2015 when I dressed as a grandma...

2014 when I had the power team come do a show for middle school (who remembers power team?!?!)...

2013 was the year powder puff seriously almost killed me...

2012 I planned everything and then was out for Mark and Diana's wedding - I remember crying in the bathroom during their rehearsal dinner (I was pregnant! hahaha) because the DJ couldn't get the equipment working and then there was a power outage and it was just a hot mess.

and pre-2012 I would have to dig for pics so I'll just leave it at that! hahaha  

Needless to say this year looks a lot different but we're so excited for some fun activities during the football game on Friday night.  

I picked up this swiss cheese plant this weekend and am OBSESSED!!!  It's so pretty and full and I'm crossing my fingers it will like this spot!

Fall and Halloween touches out around the house!  

Alllll the normal every day things and throwing in some CUTE new jeans while we're at it ;)

I've been "go clean co-ing" our house and this weekend I have plans to tackle our window tracks. 
Pray for me.

Getting our halloween decorations finalized and photographed!  I can't wait to share!

I'm super excited about the new iPhone update and being able to add "widgets" .  Have you played with this yet?

Currently reading Next Year in Havana and loving it so far!

alllll the spirit dress day outfits :)

Everything!  Halloween, pumpkins, cooler weather... bring it on!!!

The regular drill - sports, cleaning, church, small group, getting caught up around the house - rinse and repeat :) 

Happy Wednesday, friends!!!


  1. On my computer reading so I CAN COMMENT! WAHOO!! Widgets? Absolutely not! I'm gonna need you and Lori to give me very detailed instructions or if it's not that important, I'll just skip it. I can't wait to see all the crazy fun that happens this year for Homecoming! Those pictures were GREAT!

  2. I saw the tomato soup on the stove, and now it's all I can think about it.

  3. I'm so jealous that you guys have homecoming. My son is a senior and a football player and our homecoming got cancelled this year. It's so depressing.

  4. PLEASE CAN YOU DO A BLOG POST OR INSTA ON WIDGETS AND HOW TO ADD THEM ON THE PHONE? (I say in all caps, because I am yelling this at you) :)

  5. And now, I want that salad and soup for breakfast!

  6. Can you do a widget tutorial post, please!?!?!?

  7. Oh my gosh I've been obsessed with go clean co lately and have been obsessively thinking about how I need to clean my window tracks..

  8. I love that new plant! That salad looks delicious.
