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.
I hope that we will get to take a trip to NYC this Spring.
3. WHAT I’M LOVING:
I am loving the fall weather that has finally arrived in Texas!!
4. WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
A lot of fall festivities!!
We had our Fall Festival at school last Friday…
And then we had our church Halloween Party this past Sunday.
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!!!!!!!!
6. WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
We are working on checking off items on our Fall Bucket List.
(I am posting an update tomorrow)
7. WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
Even though I am dreading shopping for Christmas I am actually excited Christmas is two months away! I am ready for all our family Christmas traditions, ready to spend time with our family, and so ready for some TIME OFF!!!
8. WHAT I’M WATCHING:
Gilmore Girls – Last month I was halfway through season 2 and now I am halfway through season 5!!
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:
I have been listening to a lot of country music lately. I am loving Kelsea Ballerini’s song Peter Pan.
And I love Kenny Chesney and P!nk’s new song – Setting the World on Fire
10. WHAT I’M WEARING:
I am wearing several cute outfits that I have gotten from Stitch Fix!!
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?
