What's Up Wednesday

And just like that, December is almost over. I feel like this month went by in a flash and that really sucks since December is a favorite month of mine. Maybe it is due to the renovations going on in my house, maybe it is due to the Disneyland trip we took or maybe this month just was shorter (if that makes sense). Anyways, we have been super busy this month.

Onto this month's What's Up Wednesday...What's Up Wednesday

WHAT WE ARE EATING THIS WEEK...
Sunday: Sheet Pan Mongolian Beef with Green Beans and Rice
Monday: Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup
Tuesday: Take-out. I have a procedure in the afternoon and I am not sure if I will want to cook.
Wednesday: Out for dinner as the girls have swim class.
Thursday: Out since we have the girls Christmas recital.
Friday: Take-out as I have a facial and massage in the evening.
Saturday: Make something at home.


WHAT I'M REMINISCING ABOUT...

Previous year's Christmas. I love this time of year and it is crazy to think we are about to hit a new decade. Are you ready?

WHAT I'M LOVING...

I haven't bought myself much since I have been in full on Christmas shopping mode. But I love all the items I recapped in the best of 2019 Amazon 
Purchases. I also love my new H&M white fuzzy sweater and my Madewell Golden Harvest Sweater.

WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO...

December has been full of renovations to our Hall Bathroom, a trip to Disneyland (the girls first time!), Christmas light looking and doing all the traditional Christmasy things!



Here is a sneak peak at our Disneyland trip.

WHAT I'M DREADING...

All of these health issues and waiting on the results from each test. 

WHAT I'M WORKING ON... 

I am still cleaning, purging, donating and packing our house up. I don't think I will be done with this until end of January or into February. 

WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT... 

Christmas, the girls birthday, the New Year and a new decade.

WHAT I'M WATCHING/READING... 

Well our shows have been on a break until January, but a few are still on. I have been watching Riverdale, Botched and catching up on Younger since I don't have TV Land on Hulu live. I can't wait for You Season 2 to come out next week and for all of my favorites to come back!


As for reading, I am currently reading The Last Time I Lied.

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO... 

Christmas music!

WHAT I'M WEARING... 


I have been wearing work clothes, leggings (all over Disneyland and the weekend after), boots and comfy sweaters.

WHAT I'M DOING THIS WEEKEND... Not much. I hope to go looking at Christmas lights again with the girls. I plan on baking Christmas cookies with the girls and decorating them. Watch even more Christmas movies and relax. It has been an eventful month so far. Oh and maybe do some more packing and purging.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH... A new decade! I hope January 2020 brings good news health wise and life calms down a bit.

WHAT ELSE IS NEW...

Not much. I have all of my Christmas shopping done. I had wrapped most of my gifts by the first week of December and I have three more to wrap as they arrive this week. I just can't wait to settle down into the Christmas spirit and forget about work. Work has been an awful drag lately. Seriously the cause of over half my stress. Ugh.

  8. I can't wait to see/hear more about your Disney trip! I'm sorry to hear that you're going through all sorts of medical stuff. I have been too for the past few months and I often thought the worst part was trying to get answers. It's great when they can eliminate things but not nearly as satisfying as knowing what it is.

  9. It looks like the girls enjoyed the trip!!! We had tomato soup for dinner last night. ‘‘Tis the season! It’s crazy to me that we are entering a new decade. I‘lol be praying for good health news for you. I feel like this December was so much shorter than last year, since thanksgiving was so late. Hopefully we all get to soak up some more festive spirit before it’s all over!
