What’s Up Wednesday-October 2018


I’m joining Mel, Shay, and Sheaffer and answering all these questions…

What We’re Eating This Week…

Monday:  Salmon, salad, and veggies…last week I was the driver of the eating bad train, so this week I started us off on a WAY better route.  ha!
Tuesday:  Chicken and roasted veggies…pretty boring again, BUT it’s because I was eating all the things last week.  #trustme
Wednesday:  I ALWAYS make Mummy Dogs on Halloween night with some sort of soup or main dish.  This year, I’m making Shay’s Ghoul-ash.
Thursday:  Usually on Thursdays, we can have dinner out as a family.  Since Tab’s gone most weekends right now, this is our out to eat night.
Friday:  We’ll have leftovers…basically a hot, random mess of something we call, “dinner”.

What I’m Reminiscing About…
 Kind of blurry, but check out those babies in 2010!

In 2012, these costumes were some of my absolute favorites!

In 2013, I MIGHT have ordered Baby Robin’s costumes just a few sizes too small.

 BAM!  They all grew up in 2015!

 In 2016, we started the tradition of all dressing up on Halloween night.

And last year…this was us!

Thanks for taking that walk down Memory Lane with me. 😉

What I’m Loving…

I’m having a love/hate relationship with the rain.  Texas has had tons of rain over the last couple months.  As much as I dislike having to reschedule games,  there’s just something about being all cozy at home while it’s pouring rain outside.  I do love that!  Someone fell asleep right before dinner a couple nights ago, but I’m not naming any names.  😉  #kindergartenishard

What We’ve Been Up To…

I hosted a Halloween dinner party for some of my girlfriends….so fun!  I highly recommend you grab some girlfriends and plan something STAT!

We’ve been enjoying ALL THE FALL activities!  {Pictured above Liv and Maddie.}

What I’m Dreading…

You’d be so proud!  I finally tackled my closet and it’s looking so much better!  Next up on my list is the kitchen…pantry, refrigerator, cabinets…doing it ALL!  And it sounds awful-doesn’t it?  ha!

Lots of you asked me about what book I was reading about decluttering {I’m so good at reading the books-just not so good at my follow through}.  The book I’m reading now is Cluttered Mess to Organized Success.

What I’m Working On…
I’ve been busy working on upcoming Spring Break trips, summer vacations, and even next fall getaways for sweet families like the one above.  If you’d like help with planning your next vacation, please e-mail us mixandmatchtravelagency@yahoo.com.

What I’m Excited About…


What I’m Watching/Reading…

I shared My Fall Reads list earlier this week.  This book above snagged an award-go check out that post to see which one!

I’m finishing up Before We Were Yours and then I’m moving on to Christmas books.  Because ’tis the season!  🙂

I’m still binge watching Drop Dead Diva on Netflix.

And of course, watching all the Real Housewives.

What I’m Listening To…

We’ve been listening to ALL THE HALLOWEEN music and this song ALWAYS makes the cut!

What I’m Wearing…

A sweatshirt {similar}, leggings, and a hat happen a lot around here lately.

Striped tee {similar}, poncho {mine is from last year but the same brand has a new one this season and it’s on sale!}, jeans {old so super distressed but these are similar}, and rain boots were my mom-uniform this week.

What I’m Doing This Weekend…

I’m heading out on a little getaway with the girls!

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month…

I’m looking forward to having all of this crew around our Thanksgiving Day table.  🙂

What Else is New…

THESE booties are on sale now!  I wear mine ALL THE TIME!

This sweatshirt is on sale in grey…perfect for the weather right now!

Favorite Halloween Costume?

Gotta be honest…this trio of costumes is gonna be hard to top.  But we’ll try.  😉

Hope you guys have the Happiest Halloween!
