WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK
Lots of turkey leftovers. My favorite is a turkey sandwich on crusty bread with stuffing, a little gravy, and cranberries!
WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT
We’ve always been lucky to have family close by to celebrate the holidays, until now. My sister and her family moved to Las Vegas over the summer, and this will be the first Christmas without them.
WHAT I’M LOVING

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO
Going to the mall on Black Friday is a tradition I’ve had with my daughter since she was a baby. Way back, it was to visit Santa and have lunch with friends. As she got older, it was all about the shopping. Her friends would spend the night, and we’d get up at the crack of dawn to get to the mall early, before the crowds. Now it’s just the two of us, and despite the early morning hour, it’s something I look forward to every year.
WHAT I’M DREADING
Winter driving. There’s nothing more nerve-racking than driving on icy conditions and the older I get, the scarier it seems.
WHAT I’M WORKING ON
Holiday gift guides for the blog! I added aHoliday Shoptab and am posting a new guide every week to give you shopping inspiration.
WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT
Spending a weekend downtown (Chicago) in a few weeks to see the zoo lights, Christkindlmarket and trying some new restaurants that are on my list.
WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING
The hubs and I just finished watchingHomecomingon Amazon Prime. It’s a psychological thriller series staring Julia Roberts. The episodes are short, only 30 minutes each, so it’s an easy weekend binge watch.
WHAT I’M WEARING
If you’re not already, I’d love it if you followed me on Instagram where I post more everyday outfits. Here are two of my favorite looks from this month!
WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND
Looking forward to a girls night out on Friday and finishing up my holiday decorating.
WHAT I’M LOOKING FOWARD TO NEXT MONTH
Now that high school girls swimming season has wrapped up, it’s time for high school show choir competition season! I’m soaking up and enjoying our daughter’s last year as a senior!
WHAT ELSE IS NEW
Stop back tomorrow for a holiday attire outfit and on Friday for the best stocking stuffers! Next week I’ll have my holiday home tour up!
That’s what’s up Wednesday today! Thank you for reading!
