A link-up with some fun prompts seems like the perfect way to blog this Wednesday. I read Shay's blog mainly for her recipes but I figured I'd join in the fun today with What's Up Wednesday.
What we're eating this week:
Lots and lots of salads! After some pretty junk-filled weeks Jared and I were ready for a bit of a reset so we've been loading up on greens and lots of fruit too. Looking forward to some new recipes next week, but for now the salads are rocking.
What I'm Reminiscing About:
The last visit with my niece. It went way too fast, as their visits normally do. However, I got to Skype with her cute face last weekend and I heard a very good "Aunt Erin!" so I'm happy with that :)
What I'm Loving:
How cozy our house feels right now. The candles lit, the fall decorations- I might like it even more than our Christmas decor. Shh, don't tell Jared!
What I've been up to:
Carving our pumpkins! We finished them Monday night and are proudly displaying them on the porch now- I'll show you what they are tomorrow! Hopefully they will last through Halloween. I sprayed the inside of them with a cleaner that contains bleach, I heard that helps preserve it. We'll see!
What I'm dreading:
Next week's home Thursday night game. I've had my downtime, I've enjoyed the away games and bye week all back to back to back, but now it's go time. A Thursday home game means working 9am until probably 11pm or later that night. And no coming in late the next day or anything either. Excuse me while I nap until that day. Whodey.
What I'm working on:
Lots of new stuff for my Etsy shop and installing blog designs left and right as well. Last week Helen and Sarah both got face-lifts!
What I'm excited about:
So many things! A much-needed manicure on the agenda for tonight, a girls night scheduled for next weekend, thinking about vacation plans for next year, the list goes on!
What I'm watching/reading:
Not a lot in either category. Other than football games and a couple scary(ish) movies Jared convinced me to watch that's been about it. I have not picked up a book in quite some time BUT I am pretty thrilled to say I just got a Kindle Fire and will be loading it up with library rentals this weekend. My brain needs a place to wander and I can't wait to dive into some new books :)
What I'm listening to:
Adele's new song because she is amazing. And lots of Mumford and Sons station on Pandora.
What I'm wearing:
I mentioned last week that I'm in love with my new Loft leggings, although they call them 'ponte pants' so I think I'll be purchasing another color. Also, Steph recommended these pants from NY&Co and I snatched up a pair on sale as well. Another great choice! As you can see, my work wardrobe needed a little pick me up and both these pieces are helping.
What I'm doing this weekend:
Nothing at all Friday night (thank goodness- I need some downtime!), passing out candy to trick-or-treaters Saturday and watching my Bengals take on the Steelers Sunday. BIG GAME! Ready for some quality, fun time with my man.
What I'm looking forward to next month:
Jared turning 30 and Thanksgiving. I'm already dreaming of the desserts ;)
What else is new:
I think that should about sum things up. It's new that I've blogged three times this week, haha. What has gotten into me? :)
