This has been a crazy few weeks. Between final exams, the short turn around from Thanksgiving to Christmas, and other life stuff, I felt like we needed to do a bit of a check in. So I’m linking up today with Mix and Match Mama and Sheaffer Told Me To to do a what’s up Wednesday.
1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
Corn chowder, potatoes au gratin, chicken and broccoli roll-ups, carnitas, and salmon with rice.
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Planning for Disney trips! We aren’t doing that right now because of our house building and I miss it. Also, this awesome hot chocolate with a cookie I had last weekend:
3. WHAT I’M LOVING:
This sugar caramel lip balm. I put it on at night after I shower and then I follow it up with Kiehls lip balm before I go to bed.
4. WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
Basketball! And school, work, last minute Christmas shopping, etc.
5. WHAT I’M DREADING:
I’ve got to take the boys to get their hair cut this week. The barber that cuts their hair does a great job, but it’s the process, time, and the fact that I can’t schedule an appointment (they only take walk-ins).
6. WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
I’m up for reappointment at my job in January which means I’ve been multitasking working on my dossier:
And wrapping presents:
7. WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Christmas! And having two weeks of no school, so sleeping in and lazy mornings.
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
I’m half-way through The Giver of Stars, but I’ve had The Conviction on hold at the library and it just became available, so I’m going to need to read that fast once I get it before it’s due back in two weeks.
I watched all of the new season of Fuller House and I’ve been finishing out The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt series while working on present wrapping. The boys and I are working our way through Holiday Baking Championship and, of course, The Mandalorian.
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Besides Christmas music on repeat, I finished another podcast episode of Forever Thirty-Five, and I’m currently listening to this episode of The Splendid Table. I also really like Conan O’ Brien Needs a Friend podcast.
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
Layers on repeat because we’re having thirty degree weather swings this week.
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
A whole lot of baking and B’s parents are coming to town for a couple of days. I made lemon chocolate chip cookies this past weekend for a work event for B and I need to make another batch for the boys.
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Honestly, getting my dossier done and turned in is high on that list. Also, a new Semester! I’m excited for the new class formats I’m teaching in and meeting all my new students.
