What's Up Wednesday

It's time for one of my favorite link-ups! What's Up Wednesday with Shay, Sheaffer & Mel to recap what's been going on for the last month.

What we're eating this week...
We quit Whole30 haha. I would say 75% of our meals are still Whole30, but life just gets crazy and I just don't feel like cooking when its like that. We have things come up, Danny works a crazy schedule and I keep forgetting to order meat for the main dish so sometimes you just have to throw a few turkey sandwiches together and be happy. Which is what I did last night before I headed out to a volleyball game and the boys headed to a Halloween party with my mother-in-law. See, crazy.

What I'm reminiscing about...
High school sports. For the first time since I graduated 8.5 years ago, I went to a volleyball game with my mother-in-law a couple of weeks ago. It was senior night for someone from church and my nephews girlfriend plays, so we went. I got hooked again. I played from 6th-10th grade. Unfortunately I had to quit after 2 games my junior year due to back problems at the tearful request of my dad. You can't say no when your dad asks you with tears in his eyes. I hated not being on the team anymore, but I was still able to enjoy softball because of it. It was the lesser evil of the two. Last night I went with one of my high school bff's and my nephew to the regional game. They fought hard but ended up losing.

What I'm loving...
The cooler weather. FINALLY! I was running out of short sleeve shirts that fit!

What we've been up to...
Getting Christmas picture outfits.

I've been eating donuts every Friday at work for our Farmer Appreciation Days.

I'm also on the hunt for a nightstand for Tucker's room. I've only been meaning to buy one for 3 years. He is currently using a tv tray, which is also what is still in what will be Baby Goofy's room. It's time for an actual nightstand.

What I'm working on...
Still not done with the mudroom. I REALLY need to get the last crate painted so Danny can do his part of that project. Mentally I am working on nursery themes! For a boy I'm thinking trucks or sports and for a girl I think I'm just going to stick with a color scheme. Whatever it is has to look good with green walls!

The crib, changing table, glider and shelf in the corner will stay. The farm stuff, dresser and Tucker's name will go.

What I'm excited about...
OUR GENDER REVEAL TOMORROW!!! I had a dream that the balloons were blue. That's the first dream I've had about the baby being boy or girl. I've painted my nails for the occasion. *Please ignore my already swollen fingers. I took these in the morning before I had much water.

What I'm watching/reading...
Loving the old faves... Grey's Anatomy, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Chicago Fire & PD
Loving the new ones too... Designated Survivor, This is Us, The Mindy Project
I'm also watching Desperate Housewives!
I'm mad at Hulu Plus though. They no longer have rights to Quantico, so I have NO IDEA what is happening on that show. I was irrationally upset when I figured out why it wasn't on there.

What I'm listening too...
Tucker is still loving Head Over Boots by Jon Pardi. He's also loving International Harvester by Craig Morgan. He asked me to play "the tractor song" a couple of weeks ago and I had no idea what he meant but remembered that had a tractor sound. I tried it and now he loves it.

What I'm wearing..
I broke the boots out. My fun Toms didn't look right with the denim tunic I am wearing. I typically try to keep my boots and heat off before November 1st, but I have already utilized both this year.

What I'm doing this weekend...
A friend and I are making 2 little boys very, very happy
We're traveling to Evansville with them and our husbands Friday and going to the Saturday morning show. Tucker is going to lose his mind!

What I'm looking forward to next month...
The annual Frankenmuth weekend with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. We have so much fun and get so much Christmas shopping done. And fun shopping.

What else is new...
My back is already giving me trouble so that's going to make my shopping weekend and the rest of this pregnancy difficult.

Bonus: What is your favorite Halloween tradition?
Confession: We don't really have any. We have been slacking on the tradition portion of holidays and now that Tucker is almost 3 we really need to get going on some.
