What's Up Wednesday- November 2020

Hello, lovelies and yay for the Wednesday before American Thanksgiving!! It feels like my very favourite time of the year is finally here though it's looking different this year. Here's what we are up to...

, What’s Up Wednesday {04.29.20}

What we're eating this week:

Monday: roasted chicken, salad and potatoes for the kids

Tuesday: fish tacos

Wednesday: leftover chilli 

Thursday: I usually do a Thanksgiving lite in honour of our American neighbours and my family. I'm thinking of a couple turkey legs, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, rolls,  brussel sprouts and a caesar salad. 

Friday: turkey day leftovers! 

Last year's American Thanksgiving! My familyloves it. 

What I'm reminiscing about:

Christmases past with my parents/parents in law coming to visit, Christmas get-togethers with family/friends and holiday parties. It will be a very different Christmas for us for sure but I think it will be super special in its own right. 

What I'm dreading:

Dog walks in the cold. So far it hasn't been too bad but we take the pup out at least twice a day for a short walk... I put on a Christmas playlist and enjoy the sunshine and the puppy adventures. As the temps get colder, it won't be as fun.

Our first big snowfall of the season was this week....

What I'm loving:

We have mostly finished our Christmas decorating and I'm loving how cozy our home is.

What we've been up to

We got our Peloton bike and I thought I was somewhat fit but man these classes are kicking my sore behind. Love the mix of strength and cardio! Peloton owners, who are your faves?

What I'm working on

All things Christmas... wanting to make this Christmas special for the girls without being excessive. Keeping things simple as this year at home makes me want to minimize the plastic and the stuff and get them things that they will use but will have fun with as well. 

What I'm excited about

This holiday season. Lots of home time and so much love. 

What I'm watching/reading

We have been watching shows as a family. Yay for Kaitlyn winning DWTS-- I watched her on The Bachelorette and she's wanted to be on DWTS for so long... she got her chance and killed it! I got emotional a bit when she won! 

Our family also watches the Voice, The Masked Singer and I Can See Your Voice. 

I'm finding also that my Prime Time Dramas are doing a wonderful job dealing with the pandemic. Shout out especially to Grey's Anatomy. My mom (an ICU nurse) has described life in the hospital and as a Covid survivor the very same way that they have been dealing with it. She (and I) cried watching  the first couple episodes. 

What I'm listening to:

Christmas music and the Hamilton soundtrack--- my eleven-year-old is obsessed.

What I'm wearing:

All the joggers in all of the land. When covid is done, I'm going to have a tough time wearing regular pants again.

What I'm doing this weekend

Some baking and some cookie decorating.... and some Black Friday shopping--- Obvi. 

What else is new:

Puppy update.... our 16-week old little love, Toby is doing well. We take him on two walks a day and that's really helped with his energy.  He does sit, down, up and stay on command and is the cutest when he is the sleepiest. We adore him but  he keeps us on our toes!!!!

Have a great week, friends! Happy Thanksgiving to my Anerican friends and family!

  1. The Good Doctor started out doing a great job with the pandemic, and then they dropped the whole story line. Weird. You got a lot of snow!

  2. Your tree is gorgeous! Also, holy snow! So pretty though!

  3. So many lovely photos! I was so excited for Kaitlyn too! She deserved it. Enjoy your American Thanksgiving dinner :)

  4. You're not kidding! Those peloton classes are NO JOKE! Get it girl! Love that you celebrate Thanksgiving twice, I may need to start doing that as well <3

  5. We're having chili tonight too!

  6. I think of dog owners every time the weather is rough. I would love to have a reason to go for a walk every day but I'm also really glad when the weather is awful that I don't have to go outside. But you will be very fit this winter!

  7. I enjoyed reading the post. Your puppy is so cute! :)



Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
