What's Up Wednesday {12/21}


I can't believe this is the last What's Up Wednesday of the year!

WHAT WE'RE EATING THIS WEEK...

OK...this needs to be my New Year's resolution. I need to meal plan better. I have no idea what we are eating tonight, much less this week. The only thing I have come close to planning is Christmas Eve dinner. This year, we are going all out with Beef Tenderloin. My brother was the master at making it, so last year I made it mostly for my niece and nephew, but we all loved it! 

WHAT I'M REMINISCING ABOUT... 

Last week was Elliot's last week of half day Pre-K. When we return from Winter Break, she will be a Full Day Pre-Ker. So, I am excited and a little sad that we won't be spending a couple of hours in the afternoons together everyday. It was nice to have that one on one time that is so elusive with 3 kids. It will be good for her to be with her friends, and for me to get more done!
This is a pic of our last half day pickup. I'm not crying! YOU'RE crying! ;)

WHAT I'M LOVING...

I am loving the Christmas season. I, for the first time in the history of my existence, am ready for Christmas early this year. I made a decision early on to do what I could so that I could actually enjoy the week before Christmas instead of stressing out. So, I stressed out the 3 weeks BEFORE. Ha! 

And I love having my kids home with me. Well...most of the time, anyway. My nephew arrived the other day and my niece comes home later today! Exciting!

WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO... 

The aforementioned Christmas stressing. Yesterday, we did ALL of our holiday baking and delivery. It was kind of a long day, but delivering the treats to neighbors and close local friends makes it all worth it. (Please ignore the disarray in the background and Elliot dressed herself in case you were wondering!)



In the baskets were shortbread cookies, 

my favorite cookies of all time...Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

what I call "Buttons" or "Holiday Buttons" 

and Peppermint Fudge.


WHAT I'M DREADING... 

Putting all the Christmas stuff away!

WHAT I'M WORKING ON... 

Recommitting myself in the new year, to decluttering and cleaning out in preparation for our move next year. Can I add that to the dreading list too??

WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT... 

Next month, Eddie and I are attending the International Builders' Show in Orlando. I understand why they call it that, but the acronym is IBS. I can't help but snicker a bit in my head every time I see it. I have lived with boys for a long time. Anyway...Eddie and I get to get away for a few days! Even though it is a business trip, we always have a good time.


WHAT I'M WATCHING/ READING... 

Why, Christmas movies, of course! And Christmas books! Check out my favorite Christmas movies here and my latest Christmas book selections here.

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO... 

Christmas music!! And the sounds of my children laughing. And fighting. Incessantly. You know where the "playing" starts out as laughing...and ends in someone fighting and/or crying? That happens about 6,734 times a day. 'Tis the season!

WHAT I'M WEARING... 
My uniform...jeans, boots and a comfy top...perhaps with a Starbucks in my hand.

And of course...a Santa Hat!


WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEKEND... 
Let's see...hmm...oh yeah...celebrating Christmas!! 

WHAT I'M LOOKIN FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH... 
IBS! Ha! But seriously, it should be fun.

WHAT ELSE IS NEW...
We went to go see Elf in lieu of an office Christmas party with these awesome people! Love them!!

BONUS QUESTION THIS MONTH: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY FROM 2016?
I think my favorite memory was going to the Zac Brown Band concert over Labor Day weekend! We had such a good time with such great friends!! It was SO much fun!!

Merry Christmas!!
