What's Up Wednesday-End of September
I'm linking up with The Larson Lingo, Pinterest Told Me To and Mix & Match Family today for What's Up Wednesday which they do the last Wednesday of every month. I can't believe we are already to October. The month of September just disappeared so quickly!
What we're eating this week.... Well Monday we went to dinner with my in-laws to Ted's, Tuesday we had Costco pizza (lazy weeknight dinner), tonight I'm going to my friend Colleen's for pumpkin enchiladas, and Thursday night we are having ravioli lasagna.
What I'm reminiscing about.... This past month we went to Hilton Head for a friend of mine's wedding and it was a wonderful time with my friends. I don't get to see all my girlfriends very often because they live all over! (LA, NYC, Columbia, Orlando, Panama City, DC, and Kansas City) It was such a fun weekend and a nice break from work. It makes me sad that it seems that weddings are the only occasions we get everyone together for especially since that was the last one for awhile with my college girlfriends. We need to plan a girls weekend or something so we can all get together! We talk often through our Group Me group but it's not the same as undivided time together for a weekend. I miss them all dearly!
What I'm loving.... I'm loving that the weather has changed and cooler temps are on their way in! (minus the miserable rain this week) I love jeans, boots, leggings, and sweater time so this is my favorite time of the year. I've switched my closet over from my Spring/Summer clothes to Fall/Winter and it makes me happy. I have 3 bags full of clothes to donate to goodwill because I finally decided if I haven't worn it in 2 years than I'm not going to. It made me feel SO much better shedding some of them!
What we've been up to....September was full of football watching, wedding, meals with friends, tennis starting back up, dealing with a bum tail with Cooper, and time with family (when we can gather them together!). It's been a busy but eventful month!
What I'm dreading.... So a large part of my job this year is SST meetings (parent meetings with teachers about students who are performing below grade level and need extra support) and I spend 2 FULL days a week running these meetings. I knew what I was getting myself into but I also didn't I guess because they are not very fun and there is SO much pressure when it comes to getting RTI on track at school. Not looking forward to this 2 days a week the rest of the school year. I need to suck it up and accept it but doesn't mean I have to enjoy it (:
What I'm working on.... I'm working on some monogramming for a few different people. I have some bags I'm doing for a girl from my high school for her flower girls, an overnight bag for Tommy's buddies niece, and some burp clothes for a friend on my tennis team. The monogramming has come in slowly and kept me busy. I'm really enjoying it! here are a few of the things I've done this past month.
What I'm excited about....I'm really excited to go to Kansas City in 2 weekends to visit my friend, Audrey! I haven't been out to visit her since she moved last July so I'm thrilled to get the weekend with her. A girls weekend is much needed right about now! I'm also looking forward to celebrating my nephew's first Halloween! I can't wait to see him in his outfit and squeeze those chubby cheeks. He is just the best.
What I'm watching/reading....Ha READING isn't happening right now. I know that's bad but I just don't have it in me when I go to bed at night. I'm watching my fave shows now that they are back on! Scandal, Nashville, Modern Family, and Grey's Anatomy.
What I'm listening to...The radio. I know boring but that's the only time I listen to music is in the car and on the way to work is the Bert Show anyway. Once the new "Serial" series comes out I will be listening to those podcasts to and from work.
What I'm wearing.... JEANS now that it's not too hot. It's so much easier to get dressed when you can throw a pair of jeans on. It's even better when we have a jeans day at school. It's the little things when you work in a school.
What I'm doing this weekend....Going to one of my favorite place ATHENS to tailgate for the UGA vs. BAMA game. We don't currently have tickets because right now they are through the roof but if we can scalp some that day we will go in. If not we will just watch it at a tailgate which isn't too bad of a time anyway. Looking forward to heading there for my first game of the season for UGA. I just love Athens and getting to tailgate hop to visit a bunch of different people. There are so many people headed that way this weekend and I can't wait to see James and Claire too. This is definitely UGA's biggest home game of the season.
What I'm looking forward to next month....I guess I already answered this earlier in the "what I'm excited about" but there are some things I am really pumped about that are happening this month that will be blogged about at a later date!
