What We’re Eating this Week
Hmmm…that’s a really great question! I actually meal planned for the week and made this sausage and tomato frittata along with some chicken salad to make lettuce wraps for my lunches. I used a paleo friendly mayo, rotisserie chicken, apple, celery and some salt, pepper and cumin and it is so delicious!
We have been eating on fajitas cooked on Sunday for dinner but it’s looking like I will need to cook tonight…yikes! Maybe I will find some good ideas while browsing the WUW posts!
What I’m Reminiscing About
My life! I turned 48 last week and shared 48 years of me in a little birthday post. It was fun to look back over the past 48 years and think about all the twist and turns, struggles and success.
What I’m Loving
All the birthday surprises and time with friends! Even though my birthday was actually last week I don’t mind stretching it out!
Monday I arrived home late to find this delicious box of treats my college friend Lisa had delivered. I may or may not have skipped dinner and only had cookies!
As if that wasn’t enough, my friend Holly left this amazing cuff on my porch! She definitely speaks my love language! We were able to share margaritas and tacos and a 2 hour lunch on my actual birthday but somehow we failed to take a picture!
And Tuesday I met up with this lovely friend for martinis at happy hour. So thankful for sweet friends in my life who love me just the way I am!
What We’ve Been Up To
Keith and I took a little trip to Scottsdale and it was an amazing chance to relax and have some time to enjoy each other!
What I’m Dreading
Honestly nothing at the moment!
What I’m Working On
Our breakfast area is adjacent to the kitchen and the entry point from our garage which equates to the place everything gets dumped. Rarely is there not stuff piled on top of my kitchen table and/or bar so it has been my dream to have something built in to replace an old fashioned china cabinet which would be more functional for our family. The picture above was my inspiration.
Well, my dreams are finally coming true! The built in has been installed and painters come tomorrow to start the process of painting this piece! I can hardly wait to have this completed!
What I’m Excited About
I finally pulled out a few fall items to decorate with and I’m so glad I did! I definitely kept it a little more simple this year and I’m loving the way it turned out. The only new item I purchased were these placemats and I’m still thinking I need to head back and grab the table runner for my entry table. See my home tour for a little wicked and a little sweet!
What I’m Watching/Reading
Ummm….the World Series, duh!
In September I knocked a few books off my list but October has been a complete bust! I’m currently reading Big Little Lies but it’s going pretty darn slow!
What I’m Listening To
So, my teen finally talked me into listening to Spotify and I found so many great Texas country playlists. Then Erica from The Second House on the Right shared she was listening to the Emily Ley playlists and I’ve been hooked!
What I’m Wearing
This leopard scarf has been on repeat! I didn’t think I needed a new one but this one is very lightweight and the perfect size. Still loving my peep toe booties too and have been seriously wearing them 3-5 times per week!
I also shared my fall Stitch Fix box and this dress was the keeper! It will be great all year long with a few tweaks.
What I’m Doing this Weekend
One of my good friends is coming to town with her family for the Aggie game and it seems this is a tradition! Looks like last time she came was two years ago for the same game! It’s a night game and I’m excited about the cooler weather.
What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month
Riley will be home from Arizona and I’m hoping for a little family time. Having all four of my kids together is always my favorite! Any suggestions for a relaxing family of 6 getaway? I’d love to hear it!
Bonus: Favorite Thanksgiving Sidedish
I’m kind of weird and don’t really like traditional side dishes. My Meme’s dressing is my absolute favorite but if I have room for more I will definitely eat this amazing fruit salad which was also her recipe and some broccoli rice casserole!
