What’s Up Wednesday!

It’s What’s Up Wednesday! On the last Wednesday of every month, The Larson Lingo, Mix & Match Mama and Sheaffer Told Me To host a link up where we talk about What’s Up! When Shay posted yesterday that today is What’s Up Wednesday I had to double check my calendar…how is it possible we’re at the end of September already?!

Every WUW, we answer these questions:

WUWquestions-edit-969x10241. What we’re eating this week…

My family and I are still rockin’ Take Back the Kitchen’s weekly menus. I can’t believe we’ve been doing this for 6 weeks, it’s been a total mealtime game changer. 

Here’s our menu this week:

We’re also eating Mix and Match Mama’s Apple Butterscotch Pecan bread, unfortunately there are no pictures because it was devoured in .0006 seconds by my kids and their friends after school yesterday!

2.  What I’m reminiscing about…

I can’t say that I’m reminiscing about anything right now…mama ain’t got time for that at the moment!

3. What I’m loving…

The change in the seasons! It was in the high 80’s here in Minnesota last weekend. Let me tell you, it was so hot watching Parker play flag football Saturday morning. I was begging for some cooler weather!  A couple of days into the week this week and we have some “normal” temps, around 65 degrees. I love the leaves changing, cozier nights at home and getting to watch Parker play football!

4.What we’ve been up to…

Now that school’s back in session, we’re pretty much back to a “normal” routine. On the days I’m home with the girls, Laney goes to gymnastics and dance in the mornings. Afterwards, we run errands for a little bit before we have lunch and I get Camryn down for nap.  Last year was Laney’s first year of dance and while she liked it, almost EVERY TIME we went she would say she wanted to go to gymnastics instead. She really loved being a part of the recital at the end of the dance season last year, so we signed her up again. We are also giving gymnastics a try this fall and she’s totally loving it! I love watching her, she is a ball of energy and such a free spirit! Parker has football a couple of nights a week and plays a game every Saturday morning. Mostly we’re hustling these kids around, trying to keep this house in order and working on the mudroom/office/laundry area remodel…there’s not too much time for anything else!  We did have family pictures last Sunday, fingers crossed they turn out!!

5.  What I’m dreading…

I’m totally dreading putting everything back into the office, laundry room and mudroom.  There is just SO. MUCH. STUFF!!  We’ve lived in our house nearly 10 years and during the course of that time I think we’ve been hanging onto a lot things we should’ve gotten ride of a long time ago.

Exhibit A

img_8074I’ve been told that neither of my girls are going to care what the wedding trends were in 2006 when they get married. Maybe Parker will be interested?! Ha!

6. What I’m Excited About…

My sister is coming into town from San Francisco on Friday and I am SO EXCITED!!! She moved to San Francisco a little over a year ago and I LOVE when I get to see her. I’m try to drop subtle hints as much as possible that she needs to move back…she may tell you that my hints are not subtle. Don’t believe her.img_7231.jpg7. What I’m Watching/Reading…

I love to read but unfortunately I’m not reading much of anything these days. I’d like to know, how do others fit it into their schedules? I just feel like at the end of the day I have ZERO time to sit down and read. I did, however, finish the final season of Grey’s Anatomy. I usually turn on Grey’s when I sit down to do my patient documentation at night, multitasking at it’s finest. I thought the season was good overall but that last episodes left me wanting more! Why couldn’t they have wrapped everything up nicely and put a bow on it at the end instead of leaving things open ended?

8. What I’m Listening to…

I listen to Wedding Song Radio on Pandora a lot.  I find the music to be relaxing and sweet to listen to and sometimes the kids dance with each other to it. Now that’s enough to make my hear melt.

9. What I’m Wearing…

The weather has been so unpredicatable here, last weekend it was hot enough for shorts and now it’s definitely cooled off. I just got this dress from Nordstrom’s and I love it already. It’s super comfortable and versatile, easy to wear last weekend when the temps were HOT and I can throw a jacket over it now that it’s cooled off a bit.  It also comes in a TON of colors!  I also NEED these jeans from Evereve in my closest (like yesterday!), I’m loving the step hem!

10. What I’m Doing this Weekend…

This weekend we’re celebrating our sweet baby girl’s 1rst birthday.  I don’t know how this past year went by so quickly…but it did. We’re so excited to celebrate with friends and family! Stay tuned next week because I’ll be recapping her party!img_802711. What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month…

Over the kid’s MEA weekend we’re dropping our sweet angels off at their Grandpa and Grandma’s house and Jared and I are headed to Chicago for the weekend. We’re in desperate need of a getaway and I’m so happy we have this to look forward to!

12.  What Else is New…

That’s a wrap as far as what’s up with us!

Thank you for stopping by at Finding My Mojo! Have a great weekend enjoying your family and friends.

XO,

FMM
