What's Up Wednesday (October 2017)...

What I'm Eating This Week...
This week is a complete write off when it comes to cooking but I've spent a lot of time in the kitchen already this month so at least there's that. I work late shifts three nights this week, was on the road one night, and have plans with friends from 'the city' for supper tonight so this weekend will probably be the first time this week that I actually cook. Next week I'll hopefully get back into the swing of things.
What I'm Reminiscing About...
Celebrating Halloween when I was younger. I just love this holiday so much and it brings back such great memories for me. My siblings and I were absolutely spoiled and our Mama would drive us around after it got dark so we could make sure to hit up every single house in our small town (pretty close anyways!). I wish I could go back in time and relive it all (except for the times when it was snowing - that I could do without...).

What I'm Loving...
All the Halloween things. All.of.them

What I've Been Up To...
Trying to get my life organized. Decorating for Halloween. Killing a million and one maple bugs every single day (why are they so bad this year?!). Trying new recipes. Snuggling Krickit. Avoiding all the Halloween candy stashed in the spare bedroom.

What I'm Dreading...
Winter. Not even Winter really, since it technically doesn't start until December 21st. What I'm actually dreading is snow. And bad road conditions. That's the part of Winter that I dread. If it weren't for having to worry about road conditions I actually wouldn't mind Winter at all. 

What I'm Working On...
Finishing up the photo edits for the pictures I took of my friend and her boyfriend for their Christmas cards. I could not be a professional photographer y'all. Editing is my nightmare. 

What I'm Excited About...
The Christmas season! With Thanksgiving in the GWN already over and Halloween a week away I only have to make it to Remembrance Day (November 11th) and then on November 12th it's time for everything Christmas. Bring it on!

What I'm Reading...
I'm still trying to finish The Identicals. I haven't finished a single book yet in October, which is sooo weird for me! 
What I'm Watching...
I started watching Riverdale on Netflix because so many people talk about it but so far I'm not really into it. I've also been slowly watching the first season of This Is Us. I thought I'd binge watch all of the episodes but I needed to give myself time to process all the emotions it brings so I've been slowly working my way through it. I've also been watching anything Halloween related. MN and I watched Hocus Pocus on the weekend (well I watched, he was snoozing before we were 30 mins in...) and The Sixth Sense. This weekend I need to fit a tooon of Hallowen/Scary movies in. 

What I'm Listening To...
I created a new playlist on Spotify that I called 'Classic Country'. The 'Classic' part is a little misleading though because it's all music from the 80's and 90's (and even some from the early 2000's) that my parents listened to when I was young. Reba McEntire, Patty Loveless, Alabama, Terri Clark, Lonestar, Clay Walker, Tracy Lawrence, Michelle Wright, The Judd's, etc, etc. It's bringing back SO many memories!

What I'm Wearing...
I picked up a few things at Old Navy while in Minot last weekend, the first time in a while that I've actually shopped for clothes. I've wanted a vest for awhile but wasn't sure about the fit so wanted to wait until I could try on so that was what I initally went into the store for. And I ended up leaving with the Frost Free Vest in black, this Relaxed Soft-Wash Classic Shirt in Windowpane, a plain long sleeve grey shirt for layering underneath the vest, and two pairs of active wear pants that were on sale for 50% off that day only. I actually didn't pay full price for a single item, which I call a huge win! The only bummer is that I tried on a pair of Rockstar jeans that I loved but they were full price so I decided I would look for them online when I got home, because I hate paying full price for anything and there is always a coupon code online, and when I checked online I found that they are only available in a size that is 6 sizes too big for me. Ughhhhh! 

What I'm Doing This Weekend...
All the Halloween things. I'm having a sleepover with my nieces and making all the Halloween goodies and watching Hocus Pocus and Harry Potter and just enjoying time with them because I feel like I barely see them anymore. 

What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month...
My work is holding another fundraising event, this time a Christmas Paint Night and I can't wait. I'm also going to a Wine/Paint Nite next week with friends that supports another childcare centre in a neighbouring town. I've never been to one before but have wanted to for a loooong time so I'm super excited. 

What Else Is New...
Not a whole lot is new in my world. MN was visiting over the weekend and I ended up with a terrible sinus infection that is just now starting to get better so that put a damper on seeing him for the first time in almost 5 weeks. We're trying to make plans to a trip to Chicago before Christmas as our Christmas present to each other but that's hard to do when we're normally in different countries and on completely different schedules and then the one time that we're together in 5 weeks I can barely talk or keep my eyes open. Terrible timing. I've been a bit of a hermit lately but have lots of plans with friends coming up in the next few weeks so that should help pass the time as I countdown to Christmas!
