What’s Up Wednesday {10.25.17}

Once a month, Mix and Match MamaThe Larson Lingo, and Sheaffer Told Me To host a link up party and discuss What’s Up Wednesday by answering the following questions.

What We’re Eating This Week

This week we have been eating Slow Cooker Taco Soup  and it has been a favorite among the kids.  It’s simple, involves the slow cooker and oh so good!

What I’m Reminiscing About

This past weekend, we made caramel apples and used sprinkles to jazz them up.  The kids loved decorating the apples and eating them!

What I’m Loving

I have been loving The Super Slim Infallible Eye liner from L’Oreal.  It is very similar to Kat Von D’s tattoo liner, but way cheaper!

What We’ve Been Up To

Soccer games, birthday party, open house, school performances, and conferences.

What I’m Dreading

I haven’t really been dreading anything!

What I’m Working On

I am helping with a children’s Christmas Party and I am in charge of crafts.  I ordered these cute white bags for the children to decorate, and then ornaments for them to make as well.

What I’m Excited About

HALLOWEEN! We have some sweet friends coming over to eat and go trick or treating.  Some of our past costumes were a flight attendant and pilot, Amy and Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, and the characters from Toy Story.

This year, we have a Ninja, Captain America or dinosaur or snake (we have one who can’t make his mind up), and minnie mouse.  The hubby and I have a costume planned, but it’s a secret so tune in next week on Instagram for a reveal.  This picture is really really old, but the only one I could find from a Halloween!

What I’m Watching/Reading

I have been watching the updated show, Dynasty and it has been pretty good.  I can’t wait to start reading Christmas at Mistletoe Cove by Holly Martin.  It has been out for about a month, but I am waiting till November to read it and get ready for the Christmas Season.


What I’m Listening to

Lately, I have been listening to the Michael Bluble’ station on Pandora.  It has a great mix of his stuff, Sam Smith, and Ed Sheeran.  Perfect music for Fall.

What I’m Wearing

It’s been pretty nice in the afternoon, so I have been wearing this navy blazer from Old Navy.  It’s perfect for the light cool air in the afternoon! 

What I’m Doing This Weekend

The boys have their last soccer game this weekend and then I am hoping to do some shopping but we will see.  Throw in some Hallmark movies and a fire since the temps are suppose to drop and I will be a happy camper!

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month

Next month is Thanksgiving and before long it will be Christmas.  I like to get Christmas shopping done early, so I usually get everything done on or by Black Friday.  Traditionally, when we get together with my family for Thanksgiving, the girls go Black Friday shopping and make a fun day of it.  It requires lots of coffee and lunch!

What Else Is New

The boys are finishing up soccer and our youngest 4 year old has lots of energy, so I am thinking of gymnastics for him.  I have been looking at some places and costs etc.

Bonus Question: What is Your Favorite Thanksgiving Side?

My favorite Thanksgiving Side is Sweet Potato Casserole.  It is just the best with the nuts, brown sugar, and marshmallows.  I mean, it’s probably more of a dessert, but it has sweet potatoes, so let’s just call it a vegetable. haha!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!
