What’s Up Wednesday-11.25.20

I’m linking up today with Sheaffer and Shay for What’s Up Wednesday on this Thanksgiving Eve.  

What We’re Eating This Week…
My friend, Erin, makes these meal planners I’d highly recommend for a busy mom who’s looking for ways to stay organized around meal times.

It’s fifty-two pages of a calendar for your meals on the left side and then the grocery list on the right with a perforated edge in between.  You can scroll back through and get ideas from your previous weeks when you’re in a pinch over what to make for dinner.  It’d make a great stocking stuffer idea!

Monday-I thought we needed a little extra dose of veggies so I made Shay’s Brown Sugar Bacon Burgers on the griddle {the griddle is my favorite way to make a big batch of burgers…especially if I’m using a lean ground beef} and skipped the buns to top them on a chopped salad. 

Tuesday-We had bacon wrapped chicken bites with peas and mashed cauliflower.

Wednesday-Tonight we’re having a hot random mess of leftovers/clean out the refrigerator before Thanksgiving.


Friday-ALL ABOUT BOWEN-and it’s full of his FAVORITES!  

What I’m Reminiscing About…
Oh, baby Bowen, with just one shoe and a pacifier touching the cart.  UGGGHHH!!!  Definitely a pre-2020 moment!  This chunky baby boy makes me miss those days so very much.

What I’m Loving…
I’m LOVING this study, O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.  There’s still time for you to order and get yours before December!  I started the study this week and can’t recommend it enough. 

What We’ve Been Up To…
For the first time in maybe my whole life, I’m almost finished Christmas shopping before DECEMBER!  Who am I?  What helped was working on Christmas Gift Guides before Thanksgiving.  I typically share those in December.  I’ve even stayed up to date on the items that have arrived and most are already wrapped under the tree!

And lots of you have asked me about Ebby Lee’s.  It’s coming, I promise!  I had to push it to next week but it’ll be out on Monday!

What I’m Dreading…
Nothing at the moment.

What I’m Working On…
I’m working on the cutie on the left’s Christmas Gift Guide for this year!

What I’m Excited About…

These shoes I wore a ton last winter are back in stock!  And would make a great Christmas gift for the lady in your life!  Kind of a mix between a high top sneaker and an Ugg boot!

And this coat from last winter is back in stock as well in grey here or in the rusty pink here.

What I’m Watching/Reading…
We’re reading lots of new Christmas books lately.  I keep them right beside the fireplace so Miss Britt and I have been reading two to three every night before bed.

Tab and I finally finished Season 3 of Yellowstone!!  WHOA!  What a cliffhanger-kind of ending!  Now, how do we patiently wait for the next season to be released?  When does that happen?  July?

What I’m Listening To…

What I’m Wearing…
Well, here in Texas it’s been too warm but I can’t wait to wear this coat!  I ordered mine a while back but it’s on sale for 40% off now!

What I’m Doing This Weekend…
It’s a super old picture BUT this weekend we’ll be celebrating this sweet thing turning EIGHT!

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month…
I’m looking forward to ALL THE CHRISTMAS festivities.  Er….all the festivities that will be happening in 2020, that is.

Thanks for reading today!
