What's Up, Wednesday...11.22.2017

Whoop, whoop!
Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
Thanksgiving is one of my family's most favorite holidays of the year.
I mean, we are obsessed with the food, the fun, and the football. This year we are heading to Asheville to celebrate with the Hensley side of the family, and my kiddos cannot wait to get on the road!
 Today we are linking up with ShaySheaffer, & Mel for their monthly recap!
Here are the questions we'll be answering today.

What We're Eating This Week

I cannot wait.
I heart all things turkey, ham, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie..you get the picture!

What I'm Reminiscing About

Anyone else love those "On This Day" posts from Facebook?!
Oh they just tug at those heart strings so much!!

Oh my heart!!!

What I'm Loving

I'm still beyond obsessed with our family photos, and I cannot wait until our Christmas cards get in!
Oh how I treasure these photos & these people oh so much!

What We've Been Up To

All things Cinderella!
& family fun!

What I'm Dreading

Packing for our big Cinderella weekend that is coming up.
It's inevitable that I'll forget something, so I'm already making lists for my lists.

What I'm Working On

Christmas lists.

Nataleigh is so easy because she only wants all the hot toys of the year (eyeroll) & a bike (pink & sparkly). The boys, however, have officially hit that stage where it is beyond difficult to buy for. I've been scouring through gift lists & reviews for some good gifts for Santa to bring them. On top of being difficult, Stephen is starting to ask those Santa questions, so I foresee that conversation in the near future.

What I'm Excited About

Christmas with my babies
There is little that is better than life, especially @ Christmas, with this crew!
We laugh big, and we love BIGGER!

What I'm Watching/Reading

Give me all the Hallmark Christmas movies!
Can't stop, won't stop!

I'm reading all the recipes, and My Holiday Board is my current favorite. We have tons of holiday celebrations coming up, and I am always looking for new recipes to try!

What I'm Listening To

Currently listening to the sounds of all three of my kiddos coughing!
We've been diffusing OnGuard around the clock!

What I'm Wearing

Apparently I'm on a vests kick lately!

It's basically like wearing a snuggly blanket, and THIS ONE is one I'm looking at!

You can't go wrong with THIS buffalo check one also!

What I'm Doing This Weekend

Relaxing with the fam-bam!

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month

Christmas with our Cinderella sisters in Pigeon Forge.
Love, love, love these girls.
Ms. Jill has a fun weekend planned for her girls, and I cannot wait to see the Cinderella Magic mixed with the Magic @ Christmas! It's going to be such a fun, once-in-a-lifetime, experience for me and my girl!

What Else Is New

Nothing really..I think I about covered it all!

Happy Wednesday Friends.

  1. Girl, we had that Santa conversation last year. ☹️ Honestly, best Christmas ever! He was more excited last year than any other year. Just breathe.... it will be fine.

  2. Pigeon Forge at Christmas must be so fun! You will have a busy December for sure and the kids are getting harder and harder to buy for the older they get! xoxo ERIN

    1. Yes to all of this!! I can’t wait for this weekend!
