What's Up Wednesday - The Perfectly Imperfect Mama

What's Up Wednesday

by - Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Hey Hey!

Today I am linking up with Mel, Shay & Sheaffer for What's Up WednesdayThe last Wednesday of every month we answer these questions [except this week we are doing it a week early] . . .
Let's get right into it :).

1.  What we're eating this week . . .
Well, more like this past month!
I can't say it enough ... if you haven't gotten any of Shay's cookbooks then you are really missing out.  Here are a couple recipes we tried recently.
Pizza Quesadillas
Spinach & Sausage Stuffed Potatoes

Holy cow.  Both were amazing!  She just gets it.  Kiddos can be so picky but the way she mixes & matches things, my kiddos love what I cook.  Who knew that the way to get Cooper to eat a baked potato & spinach was to throw some sausage in it!?!

Pretty much all of our dinners are coming from the cookbook Eats & I have no shame ;).

2.  What I'm reminiscing about . . .
Look how little my girl was!
Thanksgiving 2013 ... her very first one!

3.  What I'm loving . . .
My house being all decorated up for Christmas.
I love sitting down at night when the house is quiet with only the Christmas tree, mantel & stair lights on!

4.  What we've been up to . . .
Oh you know just enjoying Thanksgiving break with my two little loves & after 6pm tonight their daddy too!

5.  What I'm dreading . . .
A Monday after a long holiday break.
But it does put us a little bit closer to Christmas break!

6.  What I'm working on . . .
I told you last Friday that I started my very own online consignment page called Oh My Heart.  I couldn't be more excited about it but it's a lot of work!  I had no idea just how many clothes & shoes my kiddos had until I started going through the tubs ... & tubs ... & tubs!  I've been working really hard trying to get it all organized & still have tons left to do!  As far as the boutique side of it goes, I have so many ideas & can't wait to share them with you!

7.  What I'm excited about . . .
I love spending time with all of our families ... & the food is a added bonus!

8.  What I'm watching/reading . . .
Every single day ... pretty much all day.
While I'm admiring my Christmas lights, like I said in number 3, I have Hallmark on.  Just ask my kiddos!  They ask if we can cuddle on the couch & watch one every night.
A friend of mine gave me this book at mine & Dan's vow renewal.  I can't wait to get started on it.

9.  What I'm listening to . . .
I just can't stop.

10.  What I'm wearing . . .
I have a new What I Wore post coming so here's just a little sneak peek.

This is pretty much an everyday look!

These aren't my exact jeans but both are from Old Navy & these are an extra 40% off at checkout!  What a steal!

My military jacket is no longer available but this one is & so is this vest.  Plus an extra 15% off with code NOVSAVE15.

And my Converse.

11.  What I'm doing this weekend . . .
Shopping on Friday & family Thanksgiving Saturday night!
And speaking of Black Friday shopping ...
These make me laugh!

12.  What I'm looking forward to next month ...
Parades, Christmas pictures, a certain someone turns the big 3-0, Christmas ...  The list could go on & on :).

13.  What else is new . . .
I think I have covered it all!

Bonus Question ::

14.  What's your favorite Thanksgiving tradition . . .
Going to different houses [grandparents that is ... we don't just go to random people's houses ;)] with my sweet little family eating lunch/dinner & spending time with our loved ones!

And that's What's Up Wednesday for you this month!

I want to wish you & your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
And remember ...
