What’s Up Wednessday-September 2019 Edition

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

What We’re Eating This Week…
Monday:  Baked Cheeseburger Sliders-When Shay posted this recipe last week, I knew I had to make them ASAP!  My kiddos are all burger fans!  These were a HIT!

Tuesday:  BBQ Chicken Rice Bowls-If you allow the Slaughter kids to build their own bowl at dinner, then they’ll eat more.  Anything they can choose the toppings gets eaten better than me plating their food.  Just a little tip I’ve noticed that works to get my kiddos to eat a little more.  🙂

Wednesday:  Mom’s Meatloaf-Have you guys ever tried the Bob Evan’s refrigerated mashed potatoes?  I grew up in a mashed potato snob household.  My mom wasn’t making or eating an instant potato which worked out well because she makes the best mashed potatoes.  {Lucky me!}  But I don’t so that little Bob Evan’s container is the perfect addition to my meatloaf.  I’ll pair it with a salad and voila!

Thursday:  You know that situation where you’ll need to eat dinner at 4:00 p.m. or at 9:30 p.m.?  That’s happening with us tomorrow so I’m not really sure what we’re eating or when it will be. 

Friday:  Kitchen is closed. 

What I’m Reminiscing About…
I’ve been working on planning lots of Spring Break trips for Mix and Match Travel families, which has me thinking about our Spring Break trip last year to Beaver Creek.

What I’m Loving…
I’m loving how much this big girly has grown!  She can now carry her backpack!

What We’ve Been Up To…
Britt had her first soccer game of the season this past weekend, which means it’s pure and utter chaos over here on Saturdays.  I couldn’t do it without my village.  🙂  Two other moms in our neighborhood signed on as coaches so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity for her to get to play with a big group of girls we know.

The group who was sitting out the first round made use of their time by playing, “Duck, Duck, Goose”.  I’ll share in my stories today a little video of the game.  Britty kicked the ball twice…once on purpose {in the video} and the other time she didn’t even notice the ball and tripped right over it.

Then it was off to the flag football fields to cheer on Bowen right after early soccer.  Another mom on our team gifted our group this velcro-run through sign {I’m sure there’s a better way to describe that}.  I thought I was taking a video to send to that mom and instead I took one picture before they ran through….

And one after.  🙁

The Tigers played HARD on Saturday morning!

We’ve been to church with our cute little fall clothes.

As well as crazy bed-head in the back.

What I’m Dreading…
Nothing at the moment.

What I’m Working On…
Magical vacations for families like YOU!

We’d LOVE to help you with an upcoming vacation too!  Please e-mail us at mixandmatchtravelagency@yahoo.com to get more information.  Cruise?  Walt Disney World?  European vacation?  And more!  Let us help!

What I’m Excited About…
All the fun FALL brings!  I’m ready for it!

What I’m Watching/Reading…
I’m finally reading The Mother’s Promise by Sally Hepworth.  I’m about 1/4 of the way in and so far-it’s GOOD!

The big finale IS tonight and I’m feeling a little -eh about it.  I definitely am not a fan of a showmance making it to the final two.  How did that happen?
I’m #TEAMNICOLE all the way, but I’m not feeling too good about that.

What I’m Listening To…
Everything in the background.  🙂

What I’m Wearing…
I’ve been wearing my Target finds-like this dress on Sunday morning.  I teach three-year-old preschool twice a month at church with my girlfriend, Meagan, and she showed up wearing the cutest fall dress from Target too!

This tee is perfect for this time of year.  I wore it Sunday afternoon around the house and then to a flag football game.  It runs a little short {in my opinion} so I’d size up.

What I’m Doing This Weekend…
Oktoberfest is happening in downtown McKinney this weekend and we’ll be there!

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month…
Halloween and all the festivities that come with it!  What I’m learning is the years really do fly by so I’m trying my best to make the most of it!

Thanks for reading today!

    I love your fall family picture! Gorgeous colors and family. Also loved your "Tis the Season" shirt, but I am especially loving that massive mirror in the background of that pic!!!!! It is stunning the little I can see of it. Do you happen to remember where you got it from?

    That Tis The Season shirt is darling! I sent a screen shot to Shay when I saw it, so I think she has it too, and it's in a Fall collage that's on the blog next week. Thanks for the sizing tip!

    Those meals sound amazing!! I'm going to have to add all three of them to our calendar… I'll probably have to make a few tweaks to make them WW Friendly but that's ok.
