What's Up Wednesday

 Hello hello and happy What's Up Wednesday! 

What We're Eating This Week:
On Monday we had this crock pot veggie chili again:
We made this last week too and it has been a big hit. 

On Tuesday it was foldable quesadillas. We followed this recipe but used our plant based nacho cheese and jackfruit instead of meat. They were delicious! 
What I'm Reminiscing About:
At this time 3 years ago Devin and I were in Amsterdam together.

We had the most beautiful fall weather, the food was delicious, the people were incredibly kind and welcoming... gosh I miss traveling!

You can see the posts I wrote about Amsterdam here:

What I'm Loving:
My nephew's school in Georgia has "fall break" this week, so they came to Charlotte to visit! It is always nice getting to spend time with them, and the time always seems to go by too quickly. 
What We've Been Up To:
This past weekend we were in Charleston, SC and then Columbia, SC.
I ran the Cooper River Bridge Run 10k Saturday morning, then we went to the Columbia zoo in the afternoon. 
It made for a very busy, but very fun day.
What I'm Excited About: 
We are heading to Disney!! We just booked our tickets for 6 days in December. I cannot wait!! We got the park-hopper passes, but I need to sit down and make a little itinerary so we know which parks to spend most of our time at. We obviously know Magic Kingdom is going to be a hit, but the kids will also love Animal Kingdom (especially since Raya is there-- LG is very into Raya right now). 
What I'm Watching/Reading:
I just finished Class Mom and loved it! 
I'll be honest, at first the main character's personality came on a little strong and I was nervous I wasn't going to like her... but I stuck it out and am so happy I did. The book was hilarious and I can't wait to read the other two books in this series.
Now I am reading Share Your Stuff, I'll Go First and I love that too!

As for watching... We kept hearing from all our friends that Mare of Easttown on HBO was really good, so we finally sat down and watched it... we were hooked!! 
It was one of those shows where we kept looking at our watches throughout the day like "how many more hours til the kids go to bed and we can watch??" If you haven't watched it yet, add it to your list!

What I'm Listening To:
I'm still vacillating between John Mayer and country depending on what kind of mood I'm in.

What I'm Wearing:
If I'm being completely honest, most days I look like this:
Joggers/Running T Shirt/Adidas Cloudfoams

This is a super old picture, but this outfit has been on rotation a bit too:
Black jeans/twist knot shirt (old, but similar here)/Tom's Wedge Booties
and then I did a post a few weeks back of some outfits I've been wearing, including this one. You can click here to see that post.

What I'm Doing This Weekend:
Lily Grace and I are going to see Disney on Ice! We went to see Beauty and the Beast over the summer and she had a blast, so I am looking forward to taking her to see this! Hopefully she likes it!

Thanks for reading along today! I can't wait to see what you've all been up to too!


  1. Amsterdam is such a beautiful city! I lived in the Charlotte area for a few years and still have family there. I have always heard Columbia has a great zoo. And so fun for a trip to Disney! Enjoy your day!

  4. Ah!! We did disney and June and had a BLAST! I can't wait to hear about your trip!

  5. Love Mare, love Class Mom, love a Disney trip!

  6. I belatedly catching up on my What's Up Wednesday reading :) Oh, I want to go back to Amsterdam. I lived in The Netherlands for a year right after university and it was amazing! And I just finished the third Class Mom novel this past weekend and thought it was so funny!
