What's Up Wednesday | Playing a little catch up

And I'm back! Today is What's Up Wednesday and I thought it'd be a fun way to kind of catch up since I haven't had much time to blog about life.

Linking up with Shay, Shaeffer and Mel.



What we're eating this week...

I have THREE crockpot meals on the rotation this week! 



What I'm reminiscing about...


Breakfast with L at The Egg and I bright and early on a Saturday morning! It was good foster mom/foster son bonding time. He was a super excited about the menu!

What I'm loving...

My hubby and his sweet heart. Our third anniversary was last week and I came home to flowers, wine and a card. Perfection.



What we've been up to...

Hiking at Enchanted Rock!


What I'm dreading...

All of the political talk. I'm so ready for it to be over.


What I'm working on...


Perfecting my cauliflower crust pizza. I made Tiffany's recipe and it was delicious, but I haven't quite gotten the crust to be perfectly crisp quite yet!

What I'm excited about...

Christmas shopping for the kids! I've never had so many people to purchase Christmas presents for, but I'm excited about it! I totally feel like my mom.


What I'm watching/reading...

We've started three new shows and I'm loving them! All very different, but equally entertaining.




What I'm listening to...

I'm listening to the audiobook of the 5th book in The Selection series.


What I'm wearing...


My new booties I bought during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, especially with this outfit (ugh...sorry the photo is blurry)!

And Kevin's stylin' his new JORD watch...



What I'm doing this weekend...

I'm taking L to a concert this weekend so that should be fun! Then we'll pick up the hubs from the airport and get the kids' Halloween costumes finalized.

What I'm looking forward to next month...

Thanksgiving!!! I'm pumped to celebrate it with the kids'. I know it'll be a hard time for them since they're not with their families, but I'm glad they have a family to celebrate it with this year, rather than in a shelter.

Bonus question:

What is your favorite Halloween memory/tradition?

When I was a cheerleader and my sister was a clown (creeeeeepy)! Haha!


I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL Halloween! This will be my first one to take kids trick-or-treating and I'm excited! We've already made a deal to trade candy for a fun toy so they don't sugar it up! Wish me luck!

Kevin's 30th | Wood watch + Giveaway

My amazing husband turned the big 3-0 not too long ago. Yes, my husband is younger than me and he constantly makes fun of me for it, but I'm pretty sure that I'm the one that won that deal. #winning

Kevin has been talking about wanting a wood watch for quite some time. Seriously, I think it's been a few years. I looked and looked for the perfect one to get and couldn't find one that I was satisfied with. I wanted to get him something special for his birthday so I was on the search for a quality wood watch.

Enter JORD.

I saw 3 of my favorite bloggers (Nina, Suzanne and Emily) post about their JORD wood watches and fell in love. In love.

JORD so graciously sent me the exact one that I had been eyeing.



I literally squealed when it arrived at my front doorstep. I knew Kevin was going to love it.

We decided to go to Chama Gaucha - the best Brazilian steakhouse in San Antonio to celebrate (while my mom watched the kiddos - thank you Mom!)

He opened the gift there and I took some pictures, but please excuse the quality. I felt silly bringing my nice camera into the restaurant so snapped some with my iPhone.







It's now his favorite watch and it truly is the perfect fall accessory for men (yes, they have women's watches too). It truly is a unique watch that he constantly gets compliments on. It's very stylish!







*Disclosure: I received the Frankie Dark Sandalwood & Smoke watch in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own (and Kevin's)!

And here's the treat for you! You can win a $75 e-voucher for JORD Wood Watches through the giveaway that JORD is so graciously hosting. Even if you don't win, you'll receive a $20 e-giftcard just for entering (excluding the winner). YES! They have women's watches too! Honestly, I really want one now. The contest will end October 30, 2016.

Enter the giveaway HERE.

Good luck! If you win, please share with me the watch that you got! I'm all about wood watches now!
