What's Up Wednesday

Hi there! I hope you're having a good week so far. I'm so happy to catch up with you all for What's Up Wednesday!

What We're Eating This Week: This week we are eating a delicious spaghetti squash recipe I saw on TikTok:

Other than that, we're having chili one night, tofu stir fry, and cheeseburgers. Yum!

What I'm Reminiscing About: I am back in grad school and it is making me remember the last time I went to grad school-- back in 2013. Look at what babies Devin and I were! Kids sure will age you haha! I'll share more about grad school below for "What I'm Working On".

What I'm Loving: This weather!! It has been perfect for getting outside. 

What We've Been Up To: We have been trying to do all the fun fall things. 
We have been to two farms/pumpkin patches. 
We made it up to the mountains to see the beautiful fall foliage. We had our fall family pictures taken. 
I plan to share the rest of our pics on Friday so be sure to come back!

What I'm Working On: I am back in grad school-- woohoo! I started a Special Education program and am very excited to learn more. I will say though, the classes are mostly online and this is my first time ever taking an online class... it has been an adjustment! I had some minor technology issues during the first class and it really threw me off. I also definitely learn better in person. That being said, I do appreciate how much more convenient online classes are. There is both good and bad to it.

What I'm Excited About: I feel like the "season of fun" is here. We have Halloween, I have my annual girls' trip, our Disney trip is coming up, and then Christmas! We are certainly going to be busy, but with MANY good things!
What I'm Watching/Reading: Devin and I have been watching the show Mindhunter on Netflix. It is a fascinating look at the FBI interviewing serial killers in the 1970's in order to learn more about how they think. It is creepy, but super interesting. 
As for reading, I just re-read The Accidental Empress after watching The Empress on Netflix. I read this book years ago (like probably 7-8 years ago), and remember loving it. After watching The Empress on Netflix, I figured I'd stay in "Empress Elisabeth mode" and read about her too. If you like historical fiction and royalty, this one would be great for you!

What I'm Wearing: Some of these pictures are old because I forgot to grab a pic in the morning before work, but the clothes are the same!
Jumpsuit/Denim Jacket/Leopard Shoes (old, but similar here)
Green PantsGingham Shirt/Leopard Shoes (old, but similar here)

What I'm Doing This Weekend: We have another weekend of fall fun coming up. Two birthday parties and a kids Halloween party. I am looking forward to having fun with friends!

Thank you for following along today! See you back here Friday for more pictures! Today I am linking up with Sheaffer and Shay.

Weekend Highlights

 Good morning friends! I hope you had a nice weekend. Ours was a perfect mix of busy and relaxing. It was exactly what we needed. 

My school (and LG's) had a half day so the teachers could have a workday in the afternoon. It was eerily quiet without the kids there, but I was not complaining-- I got a LOT done!!

Fun Fall Ambiance

 Hi friends! Happy Monday! I had a completely different post planned for today, but we spent a good chunk of our weekend with these cute little fall ambiance videos on in the background and I thought I'd share them with you today in case you want some nice background music with a fall vibe. 

I cannot take credit for these, Tanya was the first to introduce me to them either last year or the year before.

Life Lately

Hello friends and happy Friday! I hope you had a lovely week. Like most of you, I have been glued to the devastating news of what happened in Israel over the weekend. Our world is so heavy and dark at times. It breaks my heart for what those poor families suffered. It is unimaginable. Like many of you, I have been praying all week for the innocent people who have suffered. 

It has been awhile since I have done a "Life Lately"  post and updated you about what we've been up to. We have been busy these past few months!! Let's have a look:
