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.
