What's Up Wednesday!

It's the last Wednesday of the month, which means What's Up Wednesday is today! It has been a while since I have been on my blog. I hope to get back up and going! We'll see..... 

I can't believe it's almost September! I LOVE the Fall season and all the stuff that goes with it. My husband brought home a pumpkin he thought I would like, I kept it out. :) hehe... I can't wait to get out my pumpkins and scarecrows. Kinsley has been dying to get them out also. 

Meanwhile, in Texas.. it's HOT! 

1. What We're Eating This Week: 

I asked what each person wanted to see on the table this week and I got this:

Monday: Chicken Dumplings (Kinsley's request) 
Tuesday: BBQ Quesadillas (First time, they were good)
Wednesday: Spaghetti (Witten's request)
Thursday: Chicken Pillows (Beau's request)
Friday: Pizza? :)
Saturday: Date Night! :)

2. What I'm reminiscing about:

I have been reminiscing a lot about when my kiddos were babies. Witten has a birthday coming up next month and I can hardly believe he's gonna be 3 years old! Someone hold me.... lol

3. What I'm Loving..... 

I love that the days have been a little cooler and we can play outside. I also have been shopping for fall clothes and can't wait!

4. What We've Been Up To:

Not a whole lot. I have been trying to organize the kids' closets. Potty training Witten, he's doing great! He is trained, but has an accident on occasion. Kinsley is no longer in pull-ups at night!  We have had birthday celebrations, I am planning Witten's birthday. 

5. What I'm Dreading.... 

Nothing really.... I got a call from my dr that my Vitamin D levels were extremely low, so I am on a high dose of that and fish oil. I have to go back in for more blood work.. I despise blood work! So, I guess that would be something I am dreading. 

6. What I'm Working On... 

Planning Witten's 3rd birthday party. We went to a very small farm last year for a friend in his class. He had the BEST time, so he wants his party there too. So, that's where it is. It's gonna be small and low key, but he will LOVE it. 

7. What I'm Excited About....

Celebrating Fall with my kiddos! We love pumpkins and scarecrows, cooler weather, sweaters... We love the pumpkin patch, fall festivals. So Fun!

8. What I'm Watching/Reading....

We are watching Master Chef (Go Derric) and don't laugh, but the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader Making the Team show... It's funny because these girls think they're life is over if they don't make the team. 

9. What I'm Listening To... 

At the moment silence, my kids are napping. 

10. What I'm Wearing....

A black and white shirt I got at Nordstrom last year and shorts. :)

11. What I'm Doing This Weekend...

We don't have anything set in stone, but Saturday night is date night! woo hoo!! Sunday I am keeping two of my nieces. The kids always have so much fun together! 

12. What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month... 

Witten turns 3 (insert me sobbing here) and putting out my scarecrows and pumpkins!

13. What Else is New???

I LOVE Norwex Cloths!

Ok, someone came to me and asked me if I would try out the Norwex just to see how I liked them. These products are "Green" and eliminate costly cleaning chemicals. It also reduces paper towel use and lessen the trash in landfills. I was also told by a few people that cleaning your windows with just this cloth and water was very effective and faster than the old-fashioned way. I couldn't wait to give it a shot because I had been looking for a faster, more effective way to clean my windows. I have a million windows in my house and it takes forever!  I started out with the window cloth, dusting mitt and enviro cloth. I LOVED the results of using the cloth on my windows. I soaked it in water, squeezed all the excess water out and wiped with the enviro cloth and dried with the window cloth. My windows came out sparkling clean and it took about half the time that it normally takes. There were no streaks and they were crystal clear! 

Here are a few before and after shots of my windows. I only used a wet enviro cloth and a dry window cloth. It was super easy and quick. Within 45 minutes, I had 23 windows sparkling clean! Please excuse the pictures, they were taken from my iPhone. They still give you a pretty good idea of how awesome the Norwex cloths are! 

BEFORE--I had the window folded down so you could see just how bad they were. 

AFTER--They were streak free and sparkling clean!

If you are interested in purchasing Norwex products: Contact Stephanie Sutton on her website: or find her on Facebook:

 I highly recommend the cloths for sure! I loved them.
