What's Up Wednesday 9.30.15

I am linking up for What's Up Wednesday with Mix and Match Family, Pinterest Told Me To and The Larson LingoAnd with my usual Wednesday favorites, Jenn and Jessi for What's Hap-pinning Wednesday!

Can you believe it is the last Wednesday of the month?  Much less the last day of the month?!  This year is seriously flying by!

What I'm eating this week...salads.  My goal for this week is to eat a salad for lunch everyday.  So far so good!  Granted it has only been two days, but still, I think it's a good start!

What I'm reminiscing about...Halloween.  My mom used to put together the best costumes for me and my brother.  I remember my dad would take us out trick or treating.  When I was older and didn't dress up myself, my aunt would bring over my littlest cousins all dressed up.  Even when I was in college, my mom would take pictures of them to send to me.  Now my baby cousin is in high school...makes me feel old!  This year will be super fun with Jack (my nephew)...I am not sure what my brother and sister in law plan to do for his costume, but even just a little Halloween onesie will be the cutest thing!

What I'm loving...the weather.  This is on repeat from last month, but it is so true.  This past Saturday was gorgeous, we had a nice little rain this evening and the week is just supposed to get cooler as it goes on.  I envision plaid, jeans, booties and scarves for my weekend wardrobe.

What I've been up shopping!  Tonight I go to the dealer to hopefully make a deal.  Fingers crossed it all works out!

What I'm dreading...waiting a whole month before I can start my new job!  While I know not transitioning until the end of October (after my current role's busy time) is the best option for everyone, I can't help but be a little anxious to get started in my new position.  

What I'm working in the present.  As you can see from the statement above, I am not doing that great, but hey, that is why I am "working" on it!  

What I'm excited about...this weekend!  I am taking Friday off and I cannot wait!

What I'm watching...Sister Wives.  Don't Be Tardy.  Limitless.  Shark Tank.  Manzo'd With Children.  Nashville.  RHOC.  The Big Bang Theory.  The Amazing Race.  The list goes on.  Obviously, I am watching a lot of TV and am enjoying all the new seasons that have begun so far this fall.

What I'm listening to...nothing really.  My commute to work is about 5-10 minutes, so the radio is hit or miss.  The AT&T store had some good country tunes going when I was in this past weekend, so I guess I will just go with that!  

What I'm wearing...this skirt.

I mentioned my Loft purchases in this post and this skirt was a definite win.  I even got complimented about it at work.  Talk about making a girl feel good!

What I'm doing this weekend...I have a few fun things planned that I can't wait to share on Monday!

What I'm looking forward to next month...starting my new job!

What else is new...I have a few new recipes queued up to share later this month...homemade chicken noodle soup and beef fasolia...yum!

  9. Hoping you finally get your new car!!! It's such a long process and it's not like you can decide to buy a car and go out and choose one. It takes a while and sometimes it gets aggravating! Have a great weekend!
