What’s Up Wednesday November 2017

11/22/2017 3 Comments

Happy Wednesday before Thanksgiving, who’s ready for tomorrow?!

Before we starting spending time with family, eating turkey and shopping I’m excited to see what everyone has been up too!

WHAT I’M EATING THIS WEEK:

I love getting together with my girlfriends and if it’s over mexican food and margaritas it’s even better!

WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:

Seattle!

If you missed my post on where to stop for some delicious food or drink, check it out here!

WHAT I’M LOVING:

Alright, I’m sold after this mint chocolate chip one. The RxBars are the perfect healthy snack to hold me over between meals or an on the go breakfast. I can’t wait to try more flavors.

WHAT I’VE BEEN UP TO:

Sneaking in weekend trips with this guy <3

We went to Buffalo this past weekend and I want to add another awesome spot to my Weekending in Buffalo post from the summer!

Thin Man Brewery in the Elmwood area of Buffalo was the perfect afternoon place for brunch and craft beer!

WHAT I’M DREADING:

Getting sick. I feel like I say this every year around this time but seriously, with all the commitments that come along with this season, I just don’t want to be down for the count.

WHAT I’M WORKING ON:

Time management and being intentional about how I spend my time. I have a lot coming up next year so I want to be practicing it now.

WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:

Wedding dress and bridesmaid shopping in the next few weeks. In case you missed it both my sister and my best friend are getting married next year. I’m excited to see them try on some dresses!

WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:

I have been slacking in both the reading and watching department lately. The only show I’ve been watching regularly, mainly because it’s my guilty pleasure and I can’t give it up, is The Challenge!

I’m currently reading Tim Russert’s Big Russ & Me: Father & Son Lessons of Life. It’s a book my dad has recommended for awhile and I wanted to read a biography this month. It’s about life lessons from the Greatest Generation, which I always find inspiring.

WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:

An array of songs lately, but this one has been on repeat! I just love the story and the beat! Anyone else like this one!?

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Sweaters, jeans, boots in all different colors and styles! It’s pretty much my uniform right now.

Obsessed with my grey bp booties I bought last year. Here are some similar ones at great prices!

WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:

Eating leftovers, relaxing, performing in a fun Black Friday improv show with some cool people, shopping and celebrating my cute 1 year twin nephews!

WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:

Christmas! I do enjoy all the festivities of December!

WHAT ELSE IS NEW:

Just living life 🙂

 

Bonus: What are some ideas for elf on the shelf?

I don’t have any children yet so I really can’t help out with this one 🙂

 

I hope everyone has a lovely thanksgiving and I’ll see you back here Friday for some travel/gift favorites!
