What we're eating this week:
Wahoo for Halloween week!!
Monday: Do you guys base your meals around the weather? Is that weird that I do? I always look at the forecast (haha...now that I'm sharing I'm afraid it sounds weird!! ha!) and plan for soup/stew on the coolest or rainiest day of the week. This week Monday was kind of cool so we had Shay's Taco Chili.
Tuesday: We had Chicken Lettuce Wraps.
Wednesday: Two baseball nights back to back...on this one we're going out for dinner!
Thursday: One of my kids' favorites...the chicken bites wrapped in turkey bacon and baked. My kids eat these up!
Friday: Lots of Halloween plans so we'll grab something quick to eat in between trick-or-treating.
What I'm Reminiscing About:
Trick-or-treating with these three...Belle and two Ninja Turtles last year. I have the best friends who even if I'm solo include me and my crazies to hang with them. Last year, we had the best time enjoying the night with our friends.
What I'm Loving:
EEK!!! Gilmore Girls is coming back!! I finally finished the entire series earlier this weekend. I'm sharing ALL my thoughts tomorrow...come back! I am stoked about Netflix bringing back the Gilmores!!
What We've Been Up To:
School stuff, baseball, dance...the usual. Last week Nixon's class invited the parents to come in while they taught us a little about what they'd learned during their lesson on community helpers. Farmer Nixon taught us all about the farm. :)
What I'm Dreading:
I'm dreading cleaning out Ebby Lee's closet. Her closet right now has a mixture of summer and winter clothes and is just a big mess! I have got to clean it out and organize it! I'm DREADING it! This isn't her actual closet, but hers looks pretty close! Ugh!
What I'm Working On:
We finally have a plan for the dining room, powder bath, and the front room. We're working on changing our fireplace, painting the dining room, and wallpapering the bathroom. Here's a little sneak peek. :)
What I'm Excited About:
I have a really fun giveaway coming up next week!!! Can't wait to share!
What I'm watching/reading:
I'm frantically getting caught up on the Real Housewives of Orange County. We had DVR issues and I'm behind! I'm reading Bossypants, Wild (still-I know!), and Simply Tuesday.
What I'm Listening To:
After my post about your favorite songs, I downloaded lots of your suggestions. We made a playlist of Christian songs that we all like. It's been on repeat at our house.

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month:
