What I’m reminiscing about…

What I’m loving…

I LOVE this stuff!

It conditions, it’s anti-frizz, it detangles, it does it all. I love it!

What we’ve been up to…

We have had a full month.  We have went to football games…



Maddi got a new pair of glasses…


We made some yummy fall treats…


And the teachers had crazy hair day at my school…


What I’m dreading…

I am not dreading anything right now. There is so much to look forward to.

What I’m working on…

Making a Facebook page for this little blog and thinking about goals for my second year of blogging.

What I’m excited about…

BAM! Christmas carols everywhere...

What I’m watching/reading…

Slowly but surely I am making my way through Hart of Dixie.

Heart of Dixie on The CW Where have I been under a rock?

Also, I am loving all the fall magazines out right now.


What I’m listening to…

Taylor Swifts new releases…I LOVE them! I know that most people are not a fan of the new sound, but I am comletely smitten. I am so excited for the full album to be released.

What I’m wearing…

I have been doing a Pin-It/Spin-It for the past two months and have loved it. I take a pin and recreate the outfit. I have enjoyed it so much I am thinking about making it a monthly recap for others to join in. What are your thoughts?


What I’m doing this weekend…

We have Guy’s last football game and we are Halloweenin’! I cannot wait. It is going to be a fun little fall weekend!

What I’m looking forward to next month…

So much fun stuff is coming up, Guy and Brandon’s Birthday (they share the same day) and one of my favorite days of the year, Thanksgiving. We also have Parent-Teacher Confrences and I cannot wait to speak with parents and showcase their student’s work. And welcoming in the Christmas Spirit!

What else is new…

Pumpkin Dream Bars


Monster Munch {Puppy Chow with a touch of Spook}


Favorite Thanksgiving day side dish…

I LOVE Thanksgiving. I mean I do refer to it as “my day”. The sides are just as important as the turkey…my favorite sides include homemade cranberry sauce…


I love the mashed potatoes, the sweet potatoes with candied pecans and marshmallows, the gravy, my mom’s stuffing, my mother-in-law’s rolls…I love it. I also love this unexpected salad that is fresh and full of flavor but also healthy and hearty and pairs perfectly with Thanksgiving dinner….

Chopped Brussel Sprout Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette


Since I host Thanksgiving, I am always on the lookout for new sides. What is your favorite side? Thank you for reading today!

  2. I was watching Hart of Dixie, then I never finished. I think I was actually watching it while it was on air though and I maybe stopped at the end of a season. I should totally pick it back up. That crazy hair photo cracked me up, so funny! Happy Wednesday Jenna!

  3. What a fun WUW! Your crazy hair is just over the top. I remember you saying that a parent was standing near you and didn’t know that was your crazy hair …so funny! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

    1. Thank you so much Tanya! That crazy hair was so funny. And the fact that not a single parent has ever mentioned the hair is too funny. They must have thought I had a CRAZY day! Lol!


    1. It was the sweetest moment! Then my husband (who is also a coach) said…”you know, Brian doesn’t like them having their arms around each other because they always push each other over.” LOL! You could have fooled me. They just looked like they were in the moment 🙂


    1. Thank you! I will work on the link-up 🙂 I always LOVE your outfits! Hart of Dixie is my new current watch. I hope you had a great Wednesday!


    1. Thank you SO much for letting me know! I am so glad it was such a hit. I always get a little nervous 🙂 My week is made! Thank you Dara!
