What's Up Wednesday- October 2016

whatsupwedupdated

wuwquestions-edit
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
A great story about my life this week.. I totally forgot my Wal Mart grocery pickup. So, we're eating nothing. :) Just kidding, we had a tex mex chicken and rice soup on Monday, and have a few dinner commitments over the rest of the week!
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
A year ago this weekend we announced my pregnancy with Beau. I didn't even know the joy ahead of us but I was already so happy!
3: WHAT I'M LOVING: 
Beau is in a REALLY great stage. He's happy, napping well, staying awake for a lot of the day and having fun.. and he's wearing my favorite outfit on him in the photo above. I love being this boy's mama!

Annnnd.... did you know Nordstrom has curbside pickups and returns in some stores? The other day I literally had Nordys Drive Thru and got this shirt. Haha! I think this will come in so handy when I need something but don't want to take Beau into the mall! If you're wondering about the shirt, I'd highly recommend. I realized I didn't have a plain white t shirt and this one really fit the bill. It's incredibly soft!

4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
I went on a quick girls getaway to Waco to get a new sign for our dining area! 
My bestie found out that she's having a BOY in March! YAY!! I can't wait to share the boy mama life with my dear friend! Ps ignore the height difference it's fine. :) 

LOTS of pumpkin patching has been happening for us.. I kind of want to go back one last time! 
Crafting with my boy, I'll share more about that soon! :) 

30 minutes a day, every day are spent feeding Beau avocado or sweet potato. :) 

5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
nothing! :) 
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
It's been a busy few weeks and  I've been trying to get us as settled into our new home as possible! A huge last thing will be checked off when our sectional is finally delivered this Saturday after a 6 week wait!
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
I love photos. A LOT. And this has been a few weeks of OODLES of photos. Let me break it down for ya. :) Two weeks ago, Beau had photos taken with his cousin Meg and his Granny and Pop. Today he has a portrait at Janie and Jack, and tonight we have Strader family portraits. Saturday we have Beau's 6 month photos & our Christmas card photos, and Monday is Halloween and you know I'm not going to not take a photo of Beau's first Halloween. I can't wait to see and share all of these precious images with y'all! 
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
I'll be doing an update on my recently read books soon, but I LOVED Emily Ley's Grace Not Perfection. Thanks so much EL Team for sending a copy my way. I love this brand and this mission so incredibly much! 
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
I've read Young House Love for years, but now I'm addicted to their podcast!
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
new favorite flannel (I love the color scheme) + jeans + booties

One of my family photo outfits: dressbooties 
My favorite jeans + a cute new top from Matilda Jane, to order use tiffanywalker@matildajaneclothing.com as your trunk keeper at checkout!

And let's be honest, I've had a whole lot of use out of my favorite leggings and tennies as we've settled into our new home. Last month's What's Up Wednesday was skipped because we closed on our old house and new home that day and I didn't want to say anything about it until everything went through!


11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
We have some very, very, VERY exciting visitors coming in town! :) And we're taking Beau's 6 month photos/our Christmas card pics, and celebrating Halloween with friends and family and a pumpkin baby! 
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Beau's baby dedication, Thanksgiving, and continuing to settle into our house! :) 
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Bonus question this month: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE HALLOWEEN MEMORY?
I have a feeling it will happen on Monday, when my baby is a pumpkin. :)

  5. I love reading your blog! You have such great style and you're so real :) I love that you don't try to make it seem like you know more than other people - you're just a real person telling real stories! And Beau is the cutest, but you already knew that :) I hope I get to meet you sometime in Austin or if I ever come through DFW area!
