What's Up Wednesday {September 2019}




1. WHAT WE'RE EATING THIS WEEK
Chicken, chicken, and more chicken. Does anyone have any good chicken recipes?! I'm running out and need more :) We (as in Manny) did smoke burgers the other day and they were AMAZING! We are still loving our smoked meats. 

2. WHAT I'M REMINISCING ABOUT: 
Disneyland in the Fall! There isn't much that I miss about living in California but one thing I do really miss is going to Disneyland, especially in the Fall. It's decorated and festive and just so fun!




3. WHAT I'M LOVING
FALL! Fall candles are lit, Fall decorations are out, the weather is cooling off, we are starting to see pumpkins everywhere, and eating all the Fall food! Give us all the pumpkin.

4. WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO
All of our activities have started up again-church stuff, soccer, gymnastics so we are finally settling into a routine. This past weekend it was Gabriella's turn to bring home their class pet, and it just so happened we had all the activities going on that we "got" to bring her to.



5. WHAT I'M DREADING
The rain this weekend. I'm over rain.

6. WHAT I'M WORKING ON
READING! Over the past few months, I have requested quite a few books at the library and all of them have quite a few people holding in front of me. Well it became my turn for all of them AT the same time and I don't want to have to get back in line for them so I've been doing a whole lot of reading :)

7. WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT
October. We have a lot of fun things planned and something big coming up!

8. WHAT I'M WATCHING/READING
Our shows start this week--finally! We watch This is Us, Chicago PD, Chicago Fire, How to Get Away with Murder, and Dateline. What are you watching?!

As for reading, I just finished this thriller and really liked it. An English nanny named Rowan takes a live-in job in Scotland for a family who can't seem to keep a nanny for very long. Some strange things start happening while Rowan is there and she is accused of murder. The book starts and is written as a letter from her in prison to a lawyer she would like to take her case. I was legit scared at some parts and really had no idea how it would play out.


9. WHAT I'M LISTENING TO
Well last month it was Baby Shark on repeat and this month my kids discovered the song Dig it Up by Pingfong (same group who sings baby shark). It's actually a pretty cute little song and it's catchy so I  constantly have "dig it up, dig it up, dig it up up up" (to the tune of The Wheels on the Bus) running through my head. Ha!

10. WHAT I'M WEARING
Skinny jeans and t shirts. One of these days I may get brave enough to start taking selfies of what I am wearing :)

11. WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEKEND
Gabriella has a soccer game, I have a Ladies Night at a friends house, and staying dry since it is supposed to rain, rain, rain. 

12. WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH
Something big but it's still in the works so I will share next month (not a baby)!

13. WHAT ELSE IS NEW
A lot to relate to #12. In the mean time, I am just over here reading every new book ever since they all showed up at the library for me at the same time. Ha!

Happy Wednesday, friends!

  2. Say your link on one of the link up parties. Disney looks like so much fun. My kids still talking about when they went many years ago. They're teens now.

  4. We eat a lot of chicken too and I'm always on the lookout for a new chicken recipe. Why is it that the library holds always seem to come in at the same time?
