What’s Up Wednesday - 11/25/20



Hey hey!! Happy Wednesday! Today I am so excited to share this month’s edition of What’s Up Wednesday!! I am linking up with Shay and Sheaffer to bring you this post!! Tomorrow is Thanksgiving! Ahhhhh! I am so so excited! Here we go!


1.  WHAT WE’RE EATING:

We have been eating lots turkey sandwiches on Sandwich Thins, egg whites with spinach, green onions, red onions, and mushrooms, and lentils with rice! A pretty simple week food wise, except for THANKSGIVING! So so excited! 

You can read my Thanksgiving menu HERE, and my Thanksgiving desserts HERE!


2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:

My Aunt Tyler sent me this photo the other day! This was from Thanksgiving 2 years ago, it is me with Angus, who Aunt and Uncle’s black lab! It’s so weird to think about the times where there wasn’t a pandemic, and we didn’t have to worry about spreading the virus. Those were the days! Now that I’m thinking about it, I feel like I totally took moments like that (pre-corona) for granted. 




3. WHAT I’M LOVING:
I am love, love, loving this cold weather! This month was significantly colder than October (thank goodness), and it was great!
I know I shared this on Friday, but I am LOVING this picture! 

This one as well!




4. WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
This month we have been going on walks on trails, which is a blast! It’s so nice to get outside and walk in a place that isn’t just the neighborhood!


I got Starbucks on Saturday, which was super exciting! I got the app, and ordered and paid from there! It was a great experience, and I loved it! This time I tried the toasted white chocolate mocha! It was great!
I have been doing LOTS of reading! Some in the hammock, some just around the house!
I have also been doing walks with Maddie!



5. WHAT I’M DREADING:
I am not really dreading much aside from this REALLY important project in history that is due Monday! **SIGH**



6. WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
I have been working on a list of chores that I give myself every morning! Since I don’t have school things to work on, I like to have a list of things to do!



7. WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
I am SOOOO excited for Thanksgiving! I didn’t know if you could tell. ;) 
I am also super excited for volleyball to start! Our first practice of the season is on December 1st!



8. WHAT I’M WATCHING & READING:
Watching: I have been watching a LOT of Food Network and HGTV! I have been loving the Christmas Cookie show, the Holiday baking show, and the show Good Bones!
Reading: This month Ella and I are reading only classic books! Right now I am reading A Tale of Two Cities!



9. WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
I have been listening to Dateline, and Christmas music!! I am super excited for the holidays, and I love Christmas music! Speaking of Christmas music, Ella and I are linking up together and hosting a little link up for you bloggers! On December 3 don’t forget to post about your Christmas playlist! Link up on our blogs, and make sure to use this graphic!!



10. WHAT I’M WEARING:
Since it is cold here (or colder), I have been busting out my leggings (THESE are my favorite), sweaters, sweat pants, and of course comfy sweatshirts!! This is my favorite time of the year for outfits as well as its Christmas and Thanksgiving! 



11. WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Watching the Iron Bowl!! War Eagle! I’m hoping this year’s game is as good as last years!



12. WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
I am so so excited for Christmas, and all of the Christmas blog posts that come with it! I am super excited for travel volleyball!



13. WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Nothing else is new!



That is all I have for you guys! Make sure to check out my post of from Monday HERE! I hope you have a wonderful day, and I will see you later!!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! We try to get out for hikes and walks in nature at least once a week if the weather cooperates and I do find it to be such a mood booster.

Let’s Look - Coffee Area!

Hey there! Happy Wednesday!! I am so excited that it is the first Let’s Look of the year! Today we are taking a look into my coffee area!! Linking up with Shay and Erika !  To be honest, I don't drink coffee on a daily basis! Don't get me wrong, I love coffee, and I would drink it every day, but I just drink tea instead! I love hot tea a tiny bit more than coffee! So yeah, I love coffee, but I don't need it every day. Before we get into it, check out my posts from earlier this week! Monday I shared a Christmas 2020 Recap , and Tuesday I shared my Makeup Haul ! Let’s get into it! This is one coffee maker! We have the Keurig, and the water Hamilton Beach water boiler! We got out Keurig a couple of years ago from Costco, and I fell in love immediately! You can make five different cup sizes, and it makes iced coffee as well!  Since I don't do much of the coffee drinking around my house, here is the coffee that my parents use! As for me, I drink Twining’s English Breakfast

Tuesday Talk - A Day In The Life

Hey friends!! Happy Tuesday! Can we just take a step back for a moment and recognize that it is already January the 19th!!?? It has been 19 days into this New Year, and I feel like it all happened in the blink of an eye. It went by so fast. Today is the third Tuesday of the month, so that means it's time for . . . TUESDAY TALK!! Today I will be talking about how my day goes, meaning I will be sharing A Day In The Life! Day In The Life posts are some of my all-time favorite posts to read, so I am super excited to share this one with you! Linking up with Erika and Ashley ! Friday morning I woke up at 5:04 AM, my alarm did not go off, but luckily I roused close to my normal time! Then I checked my sleep app to see how much sleep I got.  After checking that, I laid in bed and read for 10 minutes. This is my favorite way to wake up and quietly prepare myself for the day! Then I got out of bed and went to the kitchen to make myself some breakfast! I made myself some hot tea, and because
