What's up Wednesday- November 2017

So close to the holiday season and yet so far away.... can you tell what this post is going to be about?! 

What we're eating this week?
Monday: Leftover 
Tuesday: Spaghetti squash with turkey sausage and 
Thursday: a mini thanksgiving meal in honour of my American Family and friends.
Friday: most likely leftovers!

What I'm reminiscing about
Novembers past--- such a wonderful time of the year.

What I'm loving
This assortment of fresh foliage my framily did on her console.... 


What we've been up to…
WInter fun. Weekends have been packed!

What I'm dreading…
They say to prepare for a 'real Canadian winter'..... uggghhh. 

What I'm working on
Decorating for the most festive of seasons.
My kids will be doing 'their tree' soon.

And I am almost done mine--- here's a sneak peak...

What I'm excited about…
Black Friday sales... though I'm done with most of my shopping, I'm sure I'll buy something or the other. I'm in a good spot with my Christmas shopping though. 

What I'm watching/reading…
I'm reading Olive Kitteridge for book club and though I was very meh about beginning it, I totally got sucked into the lives of the small town Maine natives and all the nuances in their personalities and lives.


And I've been watching all the November mid season finales. Grey's was AWESOME> I've also started recording all those Hallmark Christmas movies to watch in December in the background while I am doing stuff. 

What I'm listening to..
Christmas carols yo'

What I'm wearing…
I've been busting out those winter coats already, scarves, sweaters, gloves and uggs. 

What I'm doing this weekend…
We have our nexus interviews in Niagara, lunch after by some family and a quick cross border shopping trip,  a skating party and then my in-laws come in on Sunday for a couple weeks.

What I'm looking forward to next month..
All the Christmas-ing. SO much going on. 

What else is new?
Not too new, but this little lady busted out some funky moves on Saturday. She certainly dances like no one is watching.

Elf on the Shelf ideas?!

This was our best one from last year but D is the one who did it. We are pretty simple but  I have been known to forget about it until morning and then fling her haphazardly somewhere right before the kids get in the room... or say she must have been 'tired'
 Linking up with the lovely Mel, Shay and Shaeffer

Happy Thanksgiving Eve, Americans!!


  1. Christmas carols yo, lol! We have too around the clock. SO fun to think you'll be eating a little Thanksgiving meal with us :).

  2. I am so jealous you're done with most of your shopping! Good for you for being on top of it. I haven't even started so I will definitely be doing that this weekend! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  3. Oh my gosh that sounds ominous to prepare for a real Canadian winter! Can't wait to see all the decor you put out!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. I didn't know that What's Up Wednesday was moved up a week this month! Oops.

  5. Booooo to a real Canadian winter, sending warmth your way! Super jealous you're almost done with your Christmas shopping, we're about half way there and I can't wait to finish! <3

  6. I love that you'll be celebrating a mini American Thanksgiving! The sneak peak of your tree/holiday decor looks gorgeous! Hoping the "Canadian winter" isn't too brutal. My sister is enjoying the Florida weather while she's here. Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis
