What's Up Wednesday

What we're eating this week...
Monday - Fish cakes and baked beans
Tuesday - 3 Brewers
Wednesday - Broccoli, Sausage, and Cheese soup
Thursday - Chicken Meatballs and Orzo
Friday - Out with friends
Saturday - Dinner in with friends

What I'm reminiscing about...
Dave just got back from Orlando where he got to go to Universal with his colleagues.  I am remembering when we all went to Disney four years ago, it was so much fun (and hot, I always have to mention that)!

What I'm loving...
The sleep data on my phone and watch. I'm obsessed with making sure my watch is charged so I can wear it throughout the night and then as soon as I switch out of sleep mode, I'm checking to see how much deep sleep I've had.  I'm hoping the novelty will wear off because when I wake up in the middle of the night, my first thought is about the sleep app and how it will affect my numbers.

What we've been up to...
We've been celebrating birthdays - Q's in September and E's last week - with cake, parties, and new toys/games to play.  I like being in birthday mode for these few weeks, but glad to take a breather before Christmas. 

What I'm dreading...
Christmas spending. 

What I'm working on...
I'm thinking about travel ideas for the spring. I'd love to go to Italy or London, but we've been there before so it would be nice to try somewhere new. 

What I'm excited about...
Our mums are still so beautiful.  I took this photo a few weeks ago, but they are still as bright and full as this. And I have the purply ones as the background to my phone.

What I'm watching/reading...
Dave and I have had reciprocal work trips so that has been eating into the TV shows we watch together.  This week though, we are going to dig into Netflix's latest Halloween show "The Midnight Club". We enjoyed the ones from years past (The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and Midnight Mass).

I only read one book this month! I'll write about it Monday.  In the meantime I've got three more from the library.

What I'm listening to...
Listening to such playlists as "Sweater Weather" and Wanderlust".

What I'm wearing...
I'm starting to get out my warmer clothes including a jacket and gloves when I'm walking to work in the morning, but no big coat and boots yet!! *knock on wood*

What I'm doing this weekend...
My friend Cindy will be in town so we are going out for dinner and then we are going to host her and our friend Megan and her family for dinner on Saturday.  Then we need to carve pumpkins and make sure costumes are ready for Halloween.

What I'm looking forward to next month...
Continuing to enjoy the fall weather, raking leaves, and we are going to see Noah Reid in concert at the Danforth Music Hall. 

What else is new...
We have a few fall decorations around the house, and Q's new painting fit right in.  (This is E's last year's school photo.)

Linking up with Shay.



  1. Oh, your mums are beautiful! I can see why they are your phone background. I haven't worn gloves on my morning walk to work yet but I know that day is coming sooner than I'd like! I love Q's painting!!!

  2. Yay!! I actually get to comment on one of these. Such a busy time for you guys with back to back birthdays! Those mums look amazing. I am thinking Europe for the spring as well... portugal for us.

  3. I used to also be obsessed with the sleep app and watch and my work bestie was too. We would compare sleep data every day. I'm over it now and I didn't really like wearing my watch to bed as I found it a bit uncomfortable.

  4. I've pulled out my gloves a few times for hiking but refuse to take out any other winter gear just yet.
