2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:

Today I am remincinsing about the last time I was in New York City which was almost 14 years ago.

Danny surprised me with a trip to NYC the Fall of 2002.  While we were there we went to the Empire State building, the Today Show plaza, and walked all over the city!!  However, the most memorable event from that trip was when Danny proposed to me in Central Park on the Gapstow Bridge.

Trying to get a group picture is always a challenge.

5. WHAT I’M DREADING:

I am dreading Christmas shopping this year!!!  I always say that I am going to start Christmas shopping earlier every year but then I procrastinate and wait until the month before to start all of my shopping!!!!!!!!

The girls and I have watched half of the Justin Timberlake concert on Netflix.  I love Justin!!  I would love to see him in concert same day.

9. WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:

And I love Kenny Chesney and P!nk’s new song – Setting the World on Fire

11. WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:

This Friday will be teaming up with 3 other families for our church Trunk or Treat. We are doing a fun sports theme.  Then Saturday night we will be hosting our first ever Pumpkin Carving Party.

12. WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:

Our November is jammed packed!!  We have family pictures, Abigail’s baptism, DNOW (which means a house full of teenagers!!), and of course Thanksgiving with our family.

13. WHAT ELSE IS NEW:

I have decided to coach Abigail’s basketball team.  This could be very interesting.  Abigail played basketball last year and is pretty good.  So this year myself and a friend will be coaching her and 4 of her closest friends (plus a little girl we don’t know yet).  I can’t wait until next week when we have our first practice!!

 

14. What is your favorite Halloween memory/picture/tradition?

Our favorite Halloween tradition is carving pumpkins as a family.

  1. Sounds like you have a fun weekend planned. I am excited for the Gilmore Girls in November as well. Coaching basketball is going to be so much fun! Can’t wait to hear about the season. Have a great Wednesday!

  2. I loved hearing your story about NYC! That is just so romantic! B and I have been three times and our last trip in Dec 2012 was probably one of my favorite trips of all time! I’m going to recap it on the blog soon.

    Also, we love that song Peter Pan, too. It’s Jacob’s FAVORITE right now!

  3. I almost said I was dreading Christmas shopping, too!! I’m terrible at thinking of gifts for people. I’m too much of a perfectionist and want “the” perfect gift everyone.
    I can’t wait until the Gilmore Girls Revival!! I hope it’s better than Full House! Ha!!

    1. Christmas is so stressful!!! I feel like I need a drink just thinking about all the shopping, party planning, and then add in trying to plan visits with all of our family!! I am glad that I have 29 days to finish the last two seasons of Gilmore Girls. Hope you have a great day!
