What's Up Wednesday :: September 2018

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.....
It may be the first week of Fall, but here in California it's in the 90's still, so this week we are still BBQing and eating Summer Dinners outside.

 BBQ Cheeseburgers, Sweet Potato Fries & Watermelon

 Taco Tuesday....Instant Pot Dr Pepper Shredded Pork Tacos!

Fiesta Stuffed Bell Peppers

Instant Pot BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

Friday Night Pizza Night!

I am also making Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins for an easy after school snack for my kids!  The hot weather turned my bananas brown, so it's muffin time!

Because it's September....Apple season...I am making my Apple Crisp this week.
Once October hits, it's all about pumpkin, so I am savoring our last few days of Apple season :)

What I'm Reminiscing about.....
A year ago this weekend, our niece got married.

The kids loved being in their cousins wedding. 

It was so fun.
It was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever been to.
 Happy Anniversary Logan & Megan!

 What I'm loving.....
Colorado Football is undefeated so far this season!

We play UCLA this Friday night.
Go Buffs!!!!

What We've been up to.....
September was a busy & fun month!
Claire turned 10 and we celebrated with a Unicorn Pool Party!!.
Kevin & I went to New Orleans.

I'm working on that post so I can share what we did and were we ate!
Can't wait to tell you all about it!
What I'm Dreading.....
The weather this week....in the 90's!!!
97 Degrees today. UGH.
Gotta love "Fall" in California.
 I just want to wear Jeans & Booties.

What I'm Working On.....
140 Quizzes & Homework Packets that I need to grade.

What I'm Excited About.....

What I'm Wearing.....
 I think in the month of September I've worn them everyday to work except once!

I have 2 pairs of the pointed tow version...the Cloud Gray Birdseye and the Solid Black.
They are made from recycled water bottles!
They come in tons of colors and 4 different styles.
I love the pointed toe version, but they also come in rounded toe, loafer or sneakers.
They just now started carrying kids sizes.

It feels like I am wearing slippers.
And, the insoles are machine washable!
I recommend sizing up 1/2 a size.

What I’m doing this weekend.....
Soccer, Soccer, Soccer!
Both girls have a soccer tournament and will have 3, possibly 4 games EACH.
And, Luke has a soccer game.
I had to make a little spreadsheet & text it to Kevin so that we know how to divide & conquer.
I am coaching Claire's team & he is coaching Luke's so it adds to the craziness.
We love it though!

What I'm Looking Forward to next month.....
Decorating for Fall. I am weird and don't decorate for Fall until October 1st.
It's still so hot here in September, so I wait until October to decorate.
It just doesn't feel right having pumpkins out when it's 90+ degrees.
I am probably the only blogger out there who feels this way. Ha!
I really should live on the East Coast where there is a real Fall.

Can't wait to read about What's up with all of YOU!



  1. All Your Perfects was so good! I currently have Not That I Could Tell checked out from the library, but I just can't seem to get into it. Should I keep going? Is it worth it?

  2. We are heading to a WSU Cougar game this week and are pretty excited! I have heard nothing but great things about Rothy's so I need to check them out. It is finally cooking down up here in the PNW and the leaves are changing! I love fall!

  3. Okay, I am going to make those banana cho. chip muffins today. I have some bananas that need to be used up. Then I keep reading your post and you share all these other delicious recipes! I want to make them ALL!!!

  4. I've never been to New Orleans but I've always wanted to; can't wait to read about your trip.

  5. I loved My Oxford Year and All Your Perfects! Also, where did you get the cute striped top from?

  6. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: emutemple@gmail.com or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

    He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.

  7. I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want..
