What's Up Wednesday 10.28.15

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

What I'm eating this week...beef fasolia, yum!  This week has highs in the low 60's so warm, yummy comfort food is what's on the menu!

What I'm reminiscing about...this past year.  It has flown by with a lot of ups and's hard to believe only a few months until it is 2016.

What I'm loving...getting organized.  I spent a good portion of my Sunday going through a bunch of old papers.  It felt really good getting everything in order.  I think it will make it much easier for me going forward to put things where they go, as opposed to just piling them up to go through at a later date.

What I've been up to...enjoying this time of year!  With trips to the pumpkin patch, winery, I have been trying to get out and enjoy this gorgeous weather and time of  year before the dreaded winter comes!

What I'm payments.  I am so excited to get my new car sometime next month, but I am not too excited about having a car payment again.  Less money for fun shopping! 

What I'm working planning.  Sometimes I do well at this, other times, not so much.  I am definitely trying to get ahead as much as possible and be more efficient when it comes to my blog posts.  Always a work in progress, though. 

What I'm excited about...starting my new job!  Today is the big day.  I am so excited, yet so nervous.  I feel like I have been waiting on this day for so long, it's hard to believe it is actually here!

What I'm watching...lots and lots of TV, with a few movies sprinkled in there.  I saw Rudy for the first time this past weekend, and next in line is Hoosiers...I love a good sports movie.  Also, I have three new Hallmark movies just waiting to be watched on my DVR.  Hard to believe that it will be the start of their countdown to Christmas this weekend! 

What I'm listening to...nothing in particular.  Just whatever suits my fancy on the radio.  Pretty soon it will be time for Christmas music...I can't wait!

What I'm wearing...these booties.  I got TOMs booties for Christmas last year and they have been on repeat so far this fall.  They are super comfortable to walk around in...when we were in Chicago a few weekends ago, I wore them the whole time!  I love the look and like I said...they are SO comfortable.

What I'm doing this weekend...hopefully carving pumpkins!  I don't really have any set plans for this weekend, but I am sure something will pop up!  I also plan on picking up a little candy, just in case someone comes trick or treating!

What I'm looking forward to next much!  My nephew is getting baptized, getting my new car, Thanksgiving, Black Friday...the fun just doesn't stop!

What else is new...not only am I just looking forward to Jack's baptism because it will be so nice to see my family, I am even more excited because my brother and sister-in-law asked me to be his godmother!  I am so honored! 

What is my favorite Thanksgiving I mentioned in my "fall about me" post, my favorite thing at Thanksgiving are the dumplings.  It just wouldn't be Thanksgiving without them! 

What's up with you this Wednesday?!


  1. I have been thinking about getting a pair of Toms booties, so I'm glad to hear they are comfy! Good luck on your new job today!

  9. I loooove the Tom's booties! I have them in black and wear them alllll the time! I'm considering getting them in a different color too, because they are so dang comfy! Good luck on your first day!

  10. Those shoes are super cute! They don't look too high either so maybe I'd like them. Hope you're having a good first day =)

  11. TOMS booties are sooo cute. I really need to buy a pair, especially if they're so comfy! I had Target ones and they killed my feet. Good luck on your new position!!!

  12. Yay!! I hope your new job was awesome today! :) I love getting organized- I'm hoping for some free time this weekend to do some of that myself! My TOMs flats are my fave, I def need a pair of their booties though.

  13. I'm a little late on commenting so hopefully your day went well with the new job! I love those booties too & have heard how comfy they are! I wish I would have splurged on those instead of trying to save money on some JC Penney ones (not comfortable at all).

  14. Love those Toms booties! SO cute!
    Thanks for linking up with us! :)

  15. Seriously cannot believe it's almost the end of the year. I saw something on twitter today like 8 or 9 Mondays until christmas?! WHAT!
