What's Up Wednesday

 I'm joining MelShay, and Sheaffer for their What's Up Wednesday link-up!


What we're eating this week:


Monday: We had Taco Pasta.  I'm usually not the biggest pasta fan BUT if you add taco goodies in my pasta, I'm a big fan!

Tuesday: Fiesta Chicken with Rice was on the menu before a baseball game.  Slow cooker for the win!  :) 

Wednesday:  Lasagna Soup is what's on the menu for tonight.

Thursday:  We're going out on the town for a fun night.

Friday:  We'll eat out again because we're headed to a football game.



What I'm Reminiscing About:


My, how times have changed!  I remember the first football trip I attended WITH kiddos. I met my parents in Arkansas for one of Tab's college games and I had one-year-old Ebby Lee and six-month-old Nixon in tow.  I remember thinking it was SO HARD!  (Granted, those ages aren't great for football watching.)  But we've been trying to find a weekend that works for the kiddos and I to tag along to a game this season.  Thanks to seven-year-old flag football and dance, it's been so hard to get away!




What I'm Loving:

All the FALL festivities!  This past weekend was our BFG (Sunday School) classes' annual Harvest Party.  If you're looking for a great event for a group, DO THIS!  We rent this pavilion, have a bounce house for the evening, and all bring yummy food in slow cookers.  The kiddos get to show off their costumes, everyone gets to visit, and a fun night is had by all!

This year I took the cutest little panda, a Candy Fairy, Indiana Jones (whose costume reviews on line were ALL WRONG), and a Star Wars' guy to the party.  :)

A Panda and Moana
*At this moment, I was practically lying on the concrete trying my best to get the panda to crack a smile.  It worked.  #kindof

I think they both had a moment of...WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?

 Our big crazy crew of kiddos

Mrs. Narci caught a bit of the loving action.

 All the ladies at the party :)
And one more picture of these sweet girls because they're so cute.



What We've Been Up To:


We've been up to all the games lately.  I looked over during Nixon's game last week and saw this.  :)


Sometimes I forget those boys are just SEVEN!  We're expecting home runs, double plays, and three quick outs but at times like this...when they're mesmerized by a cute baby-I remember they're seven.  ha!  Nixon said all his friends were talking about how cute Britt is.

This game was supposed to start at 7:30 and there were a couple delays so it started at 8:15!  For late games, I usually put Britt to bed before we leave and have a babysitter come, but our girl who usually does this had sports herself.  I didn't dream the game would start so late.  BUT all that to say, Miss Britt hung like a champ.  I think she's gonna be a little night owl because she caught a second wind around 8:45 was lively until we got home.




What I'm Dreading:

Bowen's getting his tonsils removed in November and I'm already dreading it.  :(




What I'm Working On:


Sending families like the one pictured above to Disney World.  We've been busy bees working on family vacations traveling to Disney World, traveling via cruise, or traveling to all-inclusives in Mexico.  If you'd like help on an upcoming vacation, please e-mail us at mixandmatchtravelagency@yahoo.com.




What I'm Excited About:

We have our family pictures scheduled for next week.  This week I've been pulling clothes and am excited to see how they come together.  You can see our summer pictures in yesterday's post here.




What I'm watching/reading:

Every year I see this trilogy pop up around Christmas, but I always think it's too late for me to read them all in time!  Shay mentioned this series and I was so glad she did!  I've read the first two and am reading through the last one right now.

We've been watching ALL THE HALLOWEEN movies as well.  You guys recommended some great ones.  Read through the comments in this post for all your suggestions.




What I'm Listening To:


This has been on repeat around our house.

  


What I'm Wearing:

I found a few goodies I've highlighted before that are on sale right now!



This Ugg cardigan is on sale and I'm thinking it'd make a great Christmas present.  Comes in two other colors.





What I'm Doing This Weekend:

We're going to a football game and getting in the Halloween spirit!




What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:


-THANKSGIVING-
We won't see all the crew pictured above because everyone can't make it for Thanksgiving this year.  BUT-we're excited about everyone we'll get to see on this trip.  With Britt arriving this summer, we didn't have a chance to make a trip to Missouri.  We're stoked about introducing her to the family!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  XO

Megan @ Letting In The Light Blog said...

I am a die hard Elin Hilderbrand fan and I loved her Wintee trilogy. However the FOURTH book in the TRILOGY, yes it is being marketed that way, just came out and I'm a bit confused because I thought she tied it up quite nicely already.

Yall's family is going to fall all over themselves when they meet Britt!! And seriously, she was definitely a champ at that game the other night! She was just the happiest thing the whole time! That Inspired Chick

Patty said...

I'm reading the 4th in that series now...so good!

Bella said...

My daughter had her tonsils removed, I suggest buying a lot of cold items ahead of time. My daughter loved frozen icee type drinks to sooth her throat!

KB said...

I read the fourth book and Elin said she was asked to writ it because of how much people loved the series. It is good!

Julie McCune said...

The 4th book in the Winter series is also a sequel to The Rumor. So make sure you've read that book to before starting on Winter Solstice.

Bri Bliss said...

Those pics of Britt & Madely make me smile every time I see them!

Tanya Eberle said...

My seven year old is wearing the panda costume with a dude perfect t shirt on and going as "Dude Perfect Panda"!

Laci Murray said...

The panda and moana just make me SMILE so hard!

Hi! The link for the dress that's 40% goes to the Vince Camuto booties again. Thanks!

Whitney said...

Their costumes are adorable! And I love that series too! It makes me feel so festive and cozy to read them around this time of year!

Such sweet pictures!! My oldest had his tonsils out at age 6.....the recovery wasn't near as bad as I imagined!!

Alexis deZayas said...

I'm reading Winter Storms right now too! I read the first two in a few days :) She has a fourth one called Winter Solstice that's next on my list!! They are such cute reads!

Janette Golomeic said...

Uggggg! My son is getting his tonsils removed in December and I’m already dreading it too!! 😩😩😩

Sarah Parsons said...

Erika,
Before you get to Winter Solstice, make sure you read The Rumor. Winter Solstice is sort of a crossover sequel with characters from the Winter Street trilogy AND The Rumor.

I am going to try to reread the 3 Winter Street books and The Rumor before I read Winter Solstice. It's going to be hard because my signed copy of Winter Solstice is sitting on my nightstand calling, "Read me!!"
