Wandering Wednesday

Wandering Wednesday #10

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…” Oh what? It’s not even Thanksgiving yet? I know… I know… but if you walked into my house it would certainly say hello Christmas! The kids begged me to please decorate for Christmas, so here we sit 41 days before Christmas is even here! They are wondering where Buster (the Elf) is because they are ready! Which brings me to our Elf… His name is Buster and you can follow him on Instagram after Thanksgiving at #WheresBuster.

Do you have an elf? Does he move everyday? Does he cause mischief? Do you need ideas for your elf? Well, good news.. I have a Pinterest Page completely devoted to the elf here! (if you want to be a contributor to this page, go ahead and follow me and let me know down in the comments!)

Don’t have an elf and want to buy one? Currently available at Amazon 

Well, enough about Christmas! This is about meeting some other AMAZING bloggers on our weekly link up party! But before we get started:

Our Featured Post

This week is a tie! Both of these amazing ladies have been featured before and we are so happy to feature them again!

Lori from Choosing Wisdom is a wife, mother, grandmother, and friend.  She is a lover of learning, and often found devouring a book or writing. She enjoys biking and traveling with her husband as well as spending time with her grandson. Her adult kids are optional :). She wrote the perfect post called What Does Practicing Patience Really Teach Us?  Check it out!

We also have April, from Mojitos & Munchkin. April is a proud Iowan, who now lives in Minnesota with her hubby and their three cherubs. After nearly a decade teaching, she is on a break from the classroom and enjoying life as a work-from-home Mom. You can find her writing on Scary Mommy, Daily Mom, and her blog, Mojitos and Munchkins, that she uses as a creative outlet to escape the craziness that comes with life. She loves movies, cocktails, the color purple, homemade spaghetti sauce, day dates and sunny afternoons. She thinks the world would be a better place without temper tantrums, soup, the color navy, temperatures that dip below 20 degrees, and the distance between people she loves. Her insomnia allows her to pin things that she may (or may not ever) try. You can connect with her on FacebookInstagram, or Twitter. She is featured for her post Why I Let My Kids Destroy the Kitchen

Now, let’s get this party started! Check out the Party right here!

Well last night was the last night of the Football season for our family! It was bitter sweet Wandering Wednesday-2with the thought that this was Colby’s last football game. He says he is done playing football and wants to focus on baseball… We are now ready to spend our Saturdays watching college football and doing more things as a family. What are your favorite things to do with one another? We are still enjoying our photo challenge in our house! How is yours going? You can check out my Instagramor Twitter page for my #Thankful2017 journey!

Well, enough about me! This is about meeting some other AMAZING bloggers on our weekly link up party! But before we get started:

Wandering Wednesday-2

I can’t believe it is already November! September and October have flown by this year… I am looking forward to football ending (even though I LOVE watching my kids) so that I can curl up with a blanket, some hot chocolate, and a good book and relax… Ok! Who am I kidding?! Life is never that slow, but maybe I can drink some Luke warm hot chocolate in between loads of laundry and scrubbing toilets while wearing my joggers, with messy hair and no makeup on because I don’t have to leave the house! A girl can dream, right? 🙂

We survived Halloween last night with a drizzly 6pm football game for Colby and then headed straight home for some quick trick or treating! If you want to see what the kids were stop by on Saturday for our weekly “There is Sunshine in My Soul” post to see their Halloween Costumes! or checkout my Instagram or Twitter page for a sneak peek.

Well, enough about me! This is about meeting some other AMAZING bloggers on our weekly link up party! But before we get started:

#Wandering Wednesday #7

Wandering Wednesday-2To my awesome readers: Thank you so much for your patience as I have been MIA since Saturday! Life has been hectic here. We are in the process of selling our car and trying to find a new one (any suggestions for room for 7 and storage in the back?) TJ has been wanting to eat nonstop which allows me to get nothing done! (Good thing you can’t see my house 🙂 ) Talie has been contributing to the mess around the house! The boys are still busy with sports! And that shed! I know you are waiting for an update and video of the progress and the completion! I promise it’s coming! If you haven’t read our post Heaven Help Me! Not Another Home Improvement Project do! You will learn all about how to work together with your spouse on projects! I promise though I will still be able to find something to be grateful for in There is Sunshine in my Soul (last week’s post) this week!

We unfortunately don’t have a guest blogger this week, because we only got 2 votes! So please be sure to vote this week for your favorite post so we can feature them!

Wandering Wednesday-2Today is a crazy, but fun day in our house, it’s Fair Day! What’s that you ask? Well… You must not live in Texas! The Texas State Fair is huge here, so big that schools actually get a day off to go to the fair AND they even give all the kids tickets to go! Are we going? I’m not sure yet 🙂 But we will do something fun to celebrate no school!

Today is LinkUP day on the blog! I thoroughly are enjoying getting to know new bloggers and finding new blogs to read… What about you?

This Week’s Featured Post is:

How I’ve Changed as a Stay at Home Mom by Ellen.
