What's Up Wednesday

 I'm joining MelShay, and Sheaffer for their What's Up Wednesday link-up!

What we're eating this week:
Monday-Family Golf Night-so we grabbed something before our round of golf.
Tuesday-We had pizza at one of my favorite pizza places!
Wednesday-BBQ Chicken Tacos are up tonight!
Thursday-BBQ Chicken Rice Bowls-I'm making extra chicken tonight so dinner will be ready crazy quick tomorrow night.
Friday-On Fridays, Mama likes to keep the kitchen clean by going out.

What I'm Reminiscing About:
At this time last year I was binge watching my way through the entire series of Gilmore Girls.  Oh my goodness!  I LOVED that show!  Apparently, it's what I do in October because as teeny bopper as it is...I'm doing the same with One Tree Hill right this second!  

What I'm Loving:
THIS WEATHER!  Our weather has been incredible!  This week the highs are in the 80's, but the 80's are feeling like fall 80's and not middle of summer 80's...if that makes any sense.  ha!  We've officially busted out all the fall clothes!

What We've Been Up To:
ALL THE FALL activities!  

What I'm Dreading:
Nothing at the moment.

What I'm Working On:
Light fixture hunt!  The front sitting room is almost completely finished.  I just have to find a new light fixture.  Right now there's an ugly white fan.  Ugh!

I was working on this last month...still working.  :)

What I'm Excited About:
Taking these crazies to New York!  THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your recommendations yesterday.  I appreciate them SO much!

What I'm watching/reading:
I'm in the middle of Season 5 on One Tree Hill.  I'm not even reading a book right now because I can't wait to get to the end of this show.

What I'm Listening To:
The same songs as usual...Kidz Bop, Disney, and Christian music.

What I'm Wearing:
Top:  Exact here. (On super sale!)
Jeans:  Similar here.

What I'm Doing This Weekend:
We have all kinds of Halloween fun planned for the weekend.

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:
Seeing all these faces in layers of fall clothes around a Thanksgiving table.  

Hope you ladies have a great Wednesday!  XOXO

Need Your Help!

I have some fun news...


Not today, we're headed to New York City in a couple weeks!!!

My one and only trip to NYC happened earlier this year with Shay. (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRIEND!) It was an absolute BLAST and couldn't have been a better girl's trip.  You can see all our fun here and here.

This time I'm going with the family and I'm hoping for your help!

Tab has work to do so we're turning a work trip into a little family getaway.  We have a couple split days for sightseeing and such.  What would be your MUSTS in NYC with kiddos?  Do you have any favorite restaurants?  I'd LOVE your advice and help on this one.  

I can't thank you enough for your help!  Please let me know any recommendations!

This Deserved It's Own Post

I had another post all planned for today, but decided yesterday to scrap it.  This is a space where I share our life and this little piece just needed it's very own post.  Hopefully, it helps you start your Monday with a smile on your face.  Let me know if you agree.  :)

 Early Saturday evening the kiddos and I headed to the theater to see Storks.  One half of our group..

The other half :)  We counted popcorn as dinner.

Tab was out of town at the TCU/West Virginia game in West Virginia.  The movie had JUST begun when I got a text from my cousin that contained this link...  You HAVE to watch!

EEK!!!  I panicked!  Tab is the guy colliding with the TCU running back.  I was scared he'd gotten hurt, (Have you guys ever seen a clip of an official getting plowed?  It happens and I was imagining Tab on the bottom of a pile.) so I made all the kiddos go out in the hall with me to watch the video.  After watching...OH MY GOODNESS!! 


The big kids totally "got" the video and we all had a moment of laughing hysterically in the hall.  The kiddos thought the BEST part was when the announcer laughed and said his name. 

It really is a wonder more people don't bump into him in the middle of the field like that.  Right?  This kind of stuff is accidentally going to happen.  I'm just so thankful no one got hurt.

My cousin, Whitney, an avid sports' fan sent me this from Twitter.  I didn't even have a Twitter account, but created an account so I could see the link.  haha!

I love how ESPN gave Tab that white spotlight.  Don't you?  And the caption...hilarious!

I thought it might bring a little smile to your Monday, because it sure made us laugh on Saturday night.

Know where we'll be tonight?  The five of us will be watching ESPN hoping this makes the "C'Mon Man" segment before Monday Night Football.  hahahaha!!  I'll keep you posted.

Hope your Monday has a little laugh courtesy of Tab.  :)
