What’s Up Wednesday: November


WUWquestions editI’m late to the What’s Up Wednesday party but better late than never. Right?! 😉

What we’re eating this week:My must-have Thanksgiving side dish! It’s so addicting! 2016-01-29_0001I’ve also been sipping on this

What I’m reminiscing about:Italy! Eric and I are about to book our flights and so many memories are coming back from this trip! Italy is one of my favorite countries and I am thrilled to be going back! 

What I’m loving:These oils! The more I use them, the more I love them. Be sure to check back on Friday for a giveaway! 😉 

What we’ve been up to:

To honest, all things Christmas! I am a huge fan of Thanksgiving but filling our home with Christmas things makes it extra cozy!

What I’m dreading:

Is it too early to be dreading the post holiday lull? I’m trying to soak up the next few weeks as much as possible because I get so sad when it all ends. 

What I’m working on:

Mark your calendars! The week of December 5th I am hosting a week of giveaways as a thank you to all my readers!  

What I’m excited about:

The list is long but the highlights are a five day break ahead of me with the ones I love, a hair appointment on Tuesday, (it’s the little things in life!) my friend who told me several weeks ago that she is pregnant, and our Christmas cards to arrive! That covers all the high points. 😉 

What I’m watching/reading:movieawards-2015favechristmasmoviesThis has been on non-stop. 🙂 

This, this, this!

What I’m listening to:screen-shot-2016-11-02-at-6-49-46-pm

Told you our home was filled with Christmas. 😉

What I’m wearing:

My wardrobe has consisted of a few things: Black leggings, dress, half zips, and pajamas.

What I’m doing this weekend:

Family, friends, and getting a tree. Perfect. 🙂 

What I’m looking forward to next month:


What else is new:

Something has happened this month that has allowed me to settle more into a groove. A good groove. This month has flown by but I am so thankful for this pace and time of life. 🙂 

Bonus Question: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?

We don’t really have any! Eric and I were just talking about how we want to be more intentional about creating some though! What are your ideas?! 🙂

You’ll find us tomorrow having a slow morning watching the Parade before we see family! Happy Thanksgiving Eve everyone!
