What's Up Wednesday :: October 2016

It's the last Wednesday of the month, that means it's time for our What's Up Wednesday Link Up!

Link up with  me, Sheaffer & Shay the LAST Wednesday of each month so we can read about What's Up with YOU!

Here we go!
What We’re Eating this week.....
Slow Cooker Korean Beef

Dinner at our neighbors house to watch the World Series & the home opener for the Warriors.
We had Tri Tip Steak, Roasted Potatoes & Corn. I made cookies for dessert
Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies:
 and Snickerdoodles:

Spaghetti with homemade sauce, Caesar Salad & Garlic Bread


Friday Night Pizza Night

I also like to make some sort of after school snack/treat for the week.
This week it's Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins (again!)

What I'm Reminiscing about.....
Exactly a year ago this week we were in Disneyland.
 It was so fun to be there during Halloween Time.

Pumpkin decorations everywhere!
 The next time we go to Disney, I want to go during Christmastime! I've never been during that time of year before & heard it is awesome.

What I'm loving.....
Our new R+F product!!!! It launches for customers next Tuesday!
I've been using it for a couple weeks.
 Say goodbye to eye lash extensions.....
Get longer looking, fuller looking and darker-looking Lashes that are 100% natural and 100% yours!
It also works on eyebrows.
Send me an email if you want to be on my VIP list and get them as soon as they launch!
I have a feeling these are going to sell out FAST!

What We've been up to.....
October has been BUSY!!!!!!!!
I was in Vegas the first weekend in October
 (You can read about my trip HERE)

The weekend after that, Kevin and I went to Colorado for my college soccer reunion.
I need to blog that was a BLAST! Here are some pics:

It was SO good to be back in Boulder!!! One of my favorite places on Earth.

Then this past weekend, Kevin & Claire were on a father daughter camping trip....Colorado football was in town playing Stanford, so Kate, Luke and I went to the game with my parents. Luke is obsessed with our mascot Chip.
This weekend, I am on the road again for Grammy's 105th Birthday. 
 Such a busy month it has been! Very fun, but busy!

What I'm Dreading.....
The Election. UGH. At least the debates are over.
Don't like either of them.
This is who I am voting for ;) Anyone else?
 I got my shirt {HERE}

What I'm Working On.....
Grading, grading, grading!
The homework, the quizzes, the never ends ;)
Gotta love the #teacherlife
What I'm Excited About..... 
I'm also excited about the amazing results our Reverse Regimen has!
Did you spend too much time in the sun this summer?
 Do you have sun damage, age spots or pregnancy melasma? I can help!!  
 I love seeing before & after pics when people use Rodan + Fields products! How awesome are these Reverse Results from Erin? She used Reverse for 6 months & now uses redefine.

What I'm Watching........
This is Us. Still majorly obsessed.

How to Get Away with Murder

Grey's Anatomy

The of my former students is on the show!

Gilmore Girls....started watching it again from the beginning since the new mini-season comes out in a month!


What I'm Reading.....
Now that we are 2 months into the school year, I am getting back in the swing of things and I have had more time to read. After only reading 1 book in September, I am happy to report that I finished 4 books in October.

I finished Harry Potter:

I finally read Truly, Maldy, Deeply by Liane Moriarty.

I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars. Not my favorite book by Liane Moriarty. 
Finding Jake:
 This book was bruti-ful to read. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

I just finished a Fall of Marigolds.

I read it in 3 days. LOVED it.
4.5 out of 5 stars.

What I'm Listening to.....
The Chainsmokers!
After seeing them in concert in Vegas a couple weeks ago, I am even more obsessed!
And, of course being back in Boulder last weekend, we heard them a ton! 

What I'm Wearing.....
 The weather is finally cooling off, so it's officially jeans & boots season!
Jeans // Sweater // Necklace // Booties

Jeans // Top Stitch Fix // Vest // Booties

What I’m doing this weekend.....
Going to visit my Grammy because it's her 105th birthday!!!!
Yes, you read that right....she is turning 105 years old.

What I'm Looking Forward to next month.....
Soccer for the girls being over! I love it, but they each have practice 2 times a week, plus games.
I am ready for a break & not having to rush after school to get homework done & off to practice. I feel like a taxi most days since I am driving them around Monday through Thursday.

I am also looking forward to Thanksgiving! It's one of my favorite days of the year!

And, I love that November is when it finally starts feeling like Fall here in California.

It has been a really warm the 80's & 90's all month long.
All our trees still have green leaves...when November arrives they finally turn orange & red and when the weather gets chilly. I haven't even worn boots yet this fall...just my booties & only 1 time so far because it's been so warm! I am looking forward to cooler weather!

Also in November, my college roommate & her family are coming our from Boston to stay with us like they do every year. We are all looking forward to their visit!

What else is new..... 
My new favorite kitchen "appliance"
I got it a few weeks ago & I am obsessed.
I am giving one away along with a $100 Amazon Gift Card. 
Enter HERE if you haven't already! 

Question of the month is:
What is your favorite Halloween memory/picture/tradition?
One of my favorite Halloween memories as a kid is carving pumpkins with my parents & sisters:
I also LOVED going Trick or Treating! I was all about the candy :) This was one of my favorite costumes as a kid...Smurfette. It was plastic. So 80's! Love it!!
As an adult, my favorite Halloween tradition having a Halloween party & our court party and trick or treating around neighborhood. Our neighborhood is such a fun place to go trick or treating.
You can see my Halloween Party posts HERE.
