What's Up Wednesday

Linking up with Mel @ The Larson Lingo for What's Up Wednesday & Andrea for TBB Fall Fashion Frenzy!

What I'm eating this week...
I'm finishing up my remaining Burrito Pie Casserole leftovers as well as cooking up some meals from Home Chef.  I don't regularly subscribe to any meal subscription boxes, but when I see a good deal I try them out.  If you click the link above we will each get $30 credit.  Getting 3 meals for 2 people is normally $60, which is the option I chose.  I live alone so 6 meals for $25 was a great deal to me.  I did the same thing with Hello Fresh back in March.  The 3 Home Chef Meals I chose were:

-Pork Chops w/Pine Nut & Parmesan Butter w/Garlic Swiss Chard
-Barbacoa Steak Tacos w/Queso Fresco & Pickled Vegetables
-One Sheet Pretzel Crusted Chicken w/Roasted Broccoli & Honey Mustard

What I'm reminiscing about...
The freedom of summer.  The kids have been back for 6 weeks, I've been back since the end of July, & I'm still not completely over the loss of my freedom.

What I'm loving...
That highs are no longer in the 90s or above on a regular basis.

What I've been up to...
September could pretty much be summed up as: at work, with Nash, or with The Boyfriend.

What I'm dreading...
I honestly can't think of anything.  This month, which has been less than stellar, is almost over, birthday month is coming, then it's short work months because of Thanksgiving & Christmas which also mean family.

What I'm working on...
I am forever lesson planning & grading.

What I'm excited about...
Two weekends away in October.  One to a fancy resort & one to a cabin for my birthday!

What I'm watching/reading...
I'm binge watching Heartland on Netflix.

What I'm listening to...
Spotify always

What I'm wearing...
Fall means plain/flannel & I am all about that!

More flannel/plaid inspiration:

What I'm doing this weekend...
I'm not doing a whole lot.  I'm hoping to go to a pumpkin patch on Sunday but that's about it.

What I'm looking forward to next month...
My birthday month!!

I'll be turning 30 at the end of next month & because it's a milestone birthday a few of my friends are coming along to help me celebrate.  Rather than do something really big, I oped to do a weekend at a cabin in Arkansas.  Paperless Post has some really cute invitations for just the occasion!

They have really fun invitations for all types of events as well as cards to send to your loved ones!

What else is new...
For those of you who have missed the very casual mention in my posts recently, I started seeing a guy at the beginning of this month.  AKA The Boyfriend, who someday may or may not get a more creative nickname for the blog.


  1. You are Plaid Pretty personified!!!! So cute! Yay for a pumpkin patch visit!

  2. I feel like our meals have been so blah this week. I need to step my game up. Your weekends away sound like they will be so much fun! Yay for welcoming in your 30s! Loving all of your plaid. It's the staple print of fall for me. Sierra Beautifully Candid

  3. Let us know what you think of Home Chef. I have not tried that one.


  4. Ahhh two weekends away sounds fun. Will the bf be joining? Yay for pumpkin patch visits - Ive never been but always looks fun.

  5. I am loving all the flannel! I need to purchase way more pieces than I own! It is such a perfect fall staple!

  6. EEEEeeee! I did catch the mention of the boyfriend. I never get to reading blogs anymore so I wasn't sure if it was new or not, so I'm glad you clarified. I need all those plaid/flannel inspirations in my life please. And woohooo for your 30th!! My 30's have been pretty good to me, so get ready girl!
