What’s Up Wednesday

Hi Friends!

heytherehotstuff

I am jumping back into blogging by linking up with Mel, Sheaffer and Shay in:

What we are eating this week:

Today is our first day back from vacation so I will be eating lettuce.  Lettuce and air and some water.  And then tomorrow is THANKSGIVING.  Immediately followed by a month long diet of cookies, wine and side dishes.

What I’m reminiscing about:

Since I haven’t blogged in so long, I’m reminiscing about blogging.  I started this blog in 2009 and it is fun to go back and read posts from years pasts.  Life is so fun and full of changes.

What I’m loving:

I have so much to love.  I love this guy….

I love our home and business that we have created together.  Life is so good.

What we’ve been up to:

Vacation!!

I needed this vacation more than any other vacation I have ever needed in my life!

You guys know we love what we do but sometimes owning a group home is streeeeessssful and between meetings and doctor’s appointments and paperwork, I was just dragging my body around. Anytime I talked to anyone I was complaining and sharing some sort of worry. I was sick of hearing myself talk.  It felt so good to have some distance and clear our minds and rest.  I came home filled up once again with gratefulness and love for our job and our life.

What I’m dreading:

Well since I just got home from vacation and have a heart full of patience, I don’t really have anything I’m dreading.

Oh, wait, yes I do. 

SICK SEASON!

Ugh.  Why can’t everyone wash their dang hands?  If your hands are not cracking open and bleeding from dryness, you aren’t washing your hands enough!

What I’m working on:

Holiday cards!  And lots of other cards.  I will be loading my Etsy shop soon!

What I’m excited about:

The holidays!  I am looking forward to all the gatherings with friends and families.

I’m also excited to get started on my 2016 planner pages!  I love making my own pages to fit exactly what I need.  I’ll share as soon as I’m done!

What I’m watching/reading:

I am LOVING this book:

It’s SO GOOD.  I love the way Tara writes.  I love the real-life examples she gives throughout.  I feel so good reading it and then sitting back and letting her words soak in and meditating on how I can apply the lessons to my life.

We are finally watching Orange is the New Black on Netflix.

What I’m listening to:

I’ll tell you what I’m NOT listening to and that’s Adele! *SOB*  I haven’t heard any of her new songs.  I need to do something about that.

What I’m wearing:

Right this second, I am lounging and wearing this and this.  And they are both on sale!

What I’m doing this weekend:

Decorating for Christmas! Yay!

What I’m looking forward to next month:

I’m looking forward to going to a friend’s 40th Birthday party, family dinners, a cookie exchange, and a night out with family to do an escape room.

What else is new:

I can’t really think of anything else too new that I haven’t already mentioned.

Oh, I have something new (and embarrassing).  I’m not even sure how it started but I got sucked in to watching “What I Ate in a Day” videos on You Tube.  Then some how I ended up on Jen’s channel and her cleaning routine.  I feel ashamed to even admit that I watch someone else clean their home, BUT, from watching her morning cleaning routine, I have started cleaning all three of our bathrooms daily and it takes about 10 minutes total.  It’s crazy how our house can be a wreck but if the bathrooms are clean I feel like we are in good shape!

And from watching the “What I ate in a Day” videos, I learned to make a DELICOUS zucchini soup and started drinking a daily green smoothie!  More on the smoothie later!  It’s so good and one of those things that I don’t really notice a difference until I don’t drink it.  You know what I mean?

Whew!

I have been working on this post off and on for 12 hours!  Apparently, I’m a little rusty on the blog process!
