What's Up Wednesday (10/25/17)

Here we are, at the end of October already, can you believe it?! I heard last week that there were only 10 Friday's left until Christmas, which means this week, there are only 9!!!  The last Wednesday of the month I join the What's Up Wednesday link-up, so here's a little look at what we've been up to this month.   

On the last Wednesday of every month I'm linking up with Shay to answer these questions:

1.  What we're eating this week...
I had a B1G1 Coupon for Burger 21 for their re-branding campaign, so we surprised the kids for a dinner out last night.  Vincent shocked both mommy and daddy and ate a cheeseburger, so we celebrated with Halloween milkshakes obviously :)

2.  What I'm reminiscing about...
When did my baby become a little girl?!?! This month she turned twenty months old.  I feel like this is around the time that you lose track of the months, and it all blurs together, and then before you know it, you're celebrating someone turning two!  Going to savor these last few months of baby with my baby!

3.  What I'm loving...
My new nephew Archer! My BFF had a baby, so naturally I am his Aunt Shari :) He's a dream, and mommy, daddy, baby and fur babies are all adjusting nicely to life with a little one! 

I am also loving my mums!  I picked up two of these beauties from Costco, they are purple, and beautiful!  I have no green thumb, but am pleased to say that I have kept these alive for three weeks :) #ilovemumseason

4.  What we've been up to...
Enjoying the longer days while we still have them, soaking up the last "summer" months here in Florida before it's too cold to run around outside on the weekends in our bathing suits.  

We had a great date night at Tampa Bay Brewing Company.  Great food, great friends, couldn't ask for more! 

We celebrated our good friend Mariseli's birthday with her family at Busch Gardens last week.  They had a special event for Halloween, so the kids were able to trick-or-treat and have a dance party with Elmo and the rest of the sesame street characters. 

My mom said it best, all of a sudden these kids look grown up!! #bffsincethewomb

5.  What I'm dreading...
Holiday shopping!  Luckily I have already started, and do most of my shopping online, but now that I know there's only 9 weeks until Christmas, I feel rushed to get it done. I also am dreading daylight savings time, picking up the kids when the sun is setting is never fun, but we will adjust :)

6.  What I'm working on...
Training for the Gasparilla Michelob Ultra Lime Cactus Challenge.  It's two races, over two days.  15k and 8k.  A little more than a half marathon, but not all at once, which I think makes it more doable.  This weekend race season starts with the Great Westchase 5k race, and then next weekend we are doing our first Disney run with the Wine and Dine 5k.  Vincent is participating in the kids race both weekends, so it should be fun.  Let the long run training weekends begin after Thanksgiving! 

7.  What I'm excited about...
Halloween next week with the family!! Here's our pictures from last year, and check out last month's What's Up Wednesday post for a look at all of our previous costumes.  

8.  What I'm watching/reading...
Last month I finished Me Before You.

This month I started, After YouI am really enjoying this book as much as I enjoyed the first!!

Also tuning into "This is Us"

and "Dancing With the Stars"

9.  What I'm listening to...
Bruno Mars!  Mike and I went to the Bruno Mars concert in Tampa last week, and he was amazing live!! We actually got the tickets almost a year ago, so after waiting what seemed like a long time, the concert finally arrived.  He did not disappoint.  If you ever have the chance to see him live, GO!

Also putting together some running playlists on Spotify, if you have any good songs suggestions, I would love for you to share them with me :)

10.  What I'm wearing...
Instead of what I'm wearing, I wanted to share "What Arianna is Wearing" 
I am having so much fun dressing her up, and know that it will be even more fun the bigger she gets!

11.  What I'm doing this weekend...
We are overdue on our pumpkin patch photos.  This is one of my favorite traditions, so hopefully finding a pumpkin patch with the family this weekend.  

12.  What I'm looking forward to next month...
Disney with our kids and Thanksgiving with Mike's family.  November will be a fun-filled month.  

13.  What else is new...
Matching PJs are always fun, especially when they are for Halloween!  I picked these up from Gymboree, and the kids love that they match and glow in the dark.  

13.  Bonus Question - What is your favorite Thanksgiving side..
I love green bean casserole! I love to make it, I love to eat it.  Its simple, and easy, and pretty hard to mess up.  I usually just follow the instructions on the onion jar, but it's one of those sides that everyone likes to enjoy.  Give me all of the green bean casserole :)
