What's Up Wednesday

What’s Up Wednesday 09.27.17

It is hard to believe it is already the last week of September and fall is in the air!

It’s time to recap the month and link up with ShaySheaffer, and Mel for What’s Up Wednesday!

What I’m eating…

One of the best things about cool, fall weather is the menu that goes with it! I love this easy vegetable soup with chicken sausage.

Weekend breakfast calls for protein pancakes with nectarines.  Yumm!

What I’m reminiscing about…

Dylan is turning 22 this week, so I’ve been reminiscing about his younger years.

How is he already 22?

Love that boy!

What I’m loving…

Fall weather!

I absolutely love fall — and it’s finally here!  Bring on pumpkin spiced everything, hot soup on a cool day, beautiful fall colors lining the streets, and boots!  Yay for boot season!

What we’ve been up to…

We were able to get away for a few days last week and enjoy Golden, CO.  Check it out here.

What I’m dreading…

Getting my home back in order.  I can’t believe how quickly our home reverts back to disaster mode.  We were gone for a few days, had a busy weekend and a busy week…so basic housekeeping got sidelined.  So…I’ll be working on getting things cleaned up the rest of this week and into the weekend.

What I’m working on…

I feel like every free moment I have I spend working on my lesson plans, correcting papers, creating new activities or just thinking about my students and school!

Most late evenings you’ll find me on the couch looking something like this.

What I’m excited about…

I haven’t had time to decorate my home for fall, so that’s on the agenda for this weekend.  I am excited to get my fall tubs unpacked and enjoy the beautiful colors of fall throughout the house.

What I’m watching/reading…

I’ve had Switched at Birth on while working around the house. The series tells the story of two teen girls who discover that they were accidentally switched at birth. All five seasons are on Netflix.

I am reading Wild Robot and loving it.

This would be a great read aloud or literature circle book for my 5th graders.

I’m already planning to read the next book, The Wild Robot Escapes when it comes out in March.

What I’m listening to…

Pandora is my go to, here are my top three stations.

3. Ed Sheeran Radio

2. Kidz Bop Kids Radio (classroom)

  1. 1. Needtobreathe Radio

What I’m wearing…

I just ordered these camo pants  from Old Navy. I really like the way they fit, and the pixie length.

They are on sale now for $29

This ball-sleeve tee is the top I ordered to go with the camo pants.

What we’re doing this weekend…

It’s a soccer weekend, of course!  Ethan’s team has a BIG conference game on Saturday!

I’ll be in the stands cheering for #20 and the Locomotives! Go Purple & Gold!

What I’m looking forward to…

I am working on a new weekly eating & exercise plan for myself.  I have completely fallen off the health & fitness wagon and I feel like it!  I am finally ready to get back on track and have been meal planning, exercising, and … changing my bad attitude!  Keep an eye out for my recommitment post, coming Monday!

What’s new…

I can’t think of anything new to report…maybe next month!


I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s September recaps, it’s hard to believe October is almost here.  How did that happen?  Have a great rest of your week, and thanks for stopping by today!

  1. Love, love love those camo pants! I’m loving the camo trend right now. And that soup looks delicious! Soup on a cool fall night is one of my favorites. My evenings look very similar to yours, I spend so much time grading and working on lesson plans through the week. 🙂
