Today is What’s Up Wednesday with Shay and Mel!
Please join us and let everybody know
WHAT’S UP with you this fine Wednesday!
We had fajitas on Monday and burgers on Tuesday.
Tonight we are having grilled chicken and marinated peppers. Tomorrow? Who knows.
But I’m guessing I’m going to have to go to the grocery store unless we just want
to eat bread and tator tots. Dang.
Which makes me want to BAWL MY HEAD OFF.
2 years old.
For some reason I couldn’t get the pictures for the last 2 years to upload! But you’re not missing anything. He was a Skylander when he was 5 (with a mask) and he was Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragons last year (with a mask).
We’ve been having lots of fun around here lately!
Here are just a handful of things we’ve been up to:
The whole family headed to a birthday for all 3 kiddos in the Dargatz family at a Pumpkin Patch.
Here I am with the little man.
No, I don’t travel with a wind machine….it was just a little windy.
Here’s Carter with his friend Topher. 🙂
.It was raining off an on all day Saturday…and there was LOTS of football watching going on at my house by the man that lives with us. 🙂 So I picked up Luke (Narci‘s kiddo) and headed to see Hotel Transylvania 2. But it was sold out.
And this is how the boys felt about it.
So we headed to the mall to do the Lego store and the playground.
Each boy got to pick a toy, and as his mama put it, look is VERY serious about his decision making.
This was his face most of the time in the store.
At one point I looked at him and said “Okay, Luke. It’s time to make a decision.”
And he looked at me and said, “I know. I’m crazy.”
Carter got in on the action and was trying to convince him why this was the set he needed to get.
Sunday night I went to hear my friend Manda and her mom speak at church.
They are just the sweetest and most courageous ladies you could ever meet.
Click HERE to see the blog post I did about Manda back in October of last year.
I will tell you this, there was not a dry eye in the house.
Manda battled cancer when she was 5 years old, again when she was 28, and she’s about to start a clinical trial (and would love to have your prayers!).
Their faith through it all has been ASTOUNDING.
I cried the entire hour she and her mom spoke and was so inspired hearing about how God was with them (and they could share specific and very real examples of how He was with them) every step of the way.
LOVE YOU MANDA!
FAITH OVER FEAR!
Fingers crossed it’s not going to be pouring down rain!
WHAT I’M WATCHING
And tell me you didn’t just sing that line.
WHAT I’M WEARING
$8 red studs / long cami / free people swingy tee / ag skinny ankle jeans / red hunter boots
(If you are a Costco member, there are Hunter boots in stores and online right now. Nordstrom was price-matching earlier today, but I’ve heard from several readers that they are no longer doing so. Sorry!)
And a hat.
Because I may or may not have washed my hair.
Old Navy boyfriend flannel pullover (lots of color options!) / Gray Monroe Jeans (They are called the Evyn. I’m wearing a medium.) / red hunter boots
When it’s cold outside, your feet will definitely get cold in your boots if you don’t have some really warm socks! You can find many options HERE for both you and the kids!
We are going to a neighborhood party and trick-or-treating.
And again, let’s just pray that it’s not pouring.
If it does, at least my feet will be dry in my super cute boots. 😉
We are doing lunch with my family’s extended family, and then we are headed to the ranch afterwards where we will also get to see Chris’s family!
Love me some family.
‘Love me some food.
I couldn’t think of anything for this one….so you are getting several SALE ALERTS!
AND MORE ITEMS ON SALE!!!!
Certain sizes have been re-stocked in my beloved jeans (that I refer to as my pajama jeans!). If you buy these jeans, buy down 1 size. I wear a 26 in them.
Everything in this collage is between 33-50% OFF!
FAVORITE THANKSGIVING RECIPE!
So this isn’t my favorite recipe, but I think it’s a recipe that could help a lot of you out.
We alternate Thanksgivings with mine and Chris’s family.
And when we are with Chris’s family, we typically spend the night at the family’s ranch house (which has a very small kitchen). So I need to take something that is easy to make.
Well, you can’t get easier than this.
I’m not even going to pretend like it’s a recipe, but it is delish.
Basically, you take a tub (or 3) of this:
And all you do is add butter, sour cream, bacon, bits, and cheese to taste.
Bake at 350 until warm throughout.
