Getting a two for one today! You get my normal outfit post and I'm also linking up with ShayMel and Sheaffer for a little What Up Wednesday. 

What I'm wearing:

Happy Wednesday Foxy Friends! Remember a couple of weeks ago, when I wore the stripes and floral? And while I was looking for a similar striped skirt, I found this polka dot skirt and then ordered it before I even went back to typing up my post? Yeah, you all NEED to go get one! It is SOOOO freakin comfortable. It has a solid front waist, but an elastic backside so you get the comfort of the elastic, but don't get the look of it.

I ended up putting a wide belt on it, but I could have easily worn it without. The skirt also has texture and looks so much more expensive than $18!  I sort of want to get the white with black polka dots's just so darn cute. They have several patterns, you should go check them out.

What we're eating this week:

Eating some left over Mexican food from the weekend, and I might have gotten some Thai food for dinner last night, and Thursday we're having Honey Lime Shrimp and corn on the cob, yum!

What I'm reminiscing about:

We're making plans for the pumpkin patch this was last year.

This is crazy how much they've grown.

This girl was 2 months old.

Also family pictures, we took ours for this year on Sunday. Makes me think of past family pictures.

What I'm loving:

The cooler weather. I get to use a blanket when watching TV, my favorite. Plus I'm going to just say it. I get every other Friday off from work, for the last almost 7 years I've had kids with me on my off Friday, but this year, this is the year I get my Friday completely kid free for 4 hours. What?! Granted the first 2 off Fridays, I was doing things for the kids and then with the kid when I took her out early from school. But next Friday, all to myself!

What we've been up to:

So busy, our days are filled with soccer and more soccer and birthday parties and weddings and baby showers and hanging out with friends. I love every minute of it.

What I'm dreading:

Surprisingly nothing. 

What I'm working on:

Have you heard about the Common Threads Challenge? I briefly mentioned it here. Anyway, going to talk about it again. It's where you pick 5 things from you closet and then you wear ONE of those 5 things each day for a month, to try and remix your closet and use it in a way you didn't think of before.

But picking 5 things...crazy hard! You don't want to pick all tops, because then you are wearing the same 5 tops all month. But then you don't want to pick all bottoms, cause that seems like it's "cheating" in a way. So I'm going to try and mix it up a bit. So far I have picked out my striped skirt (similar), and this blazer in black. I'm contemplating using this t-shirt in maroon, although I have it in three colors, and might have ordered it in two more colors...wonder if I can just count them all as t-shirt...haha, that's totally cheating. I think I'm going to pick a pair of jeans, must pick work appropriate ones. Then my last thing...not sure. I have 4 days to choose. I might do a pair of shoes?  Anyone else doing this challenge? What did you pick?

Your hosts are

 Join all these fabulous ladies, I'm really hoping I can do this, I mean I CAN do this!

What I'm excited about:

All the fun things that are happening in the next few months. We have the pumpkin patch, a fundraiser, Halloween, and lots of hanging out with friends. Looking forward to it all!

What I'm watching/reading

Watching all the things. Let's see where to start. We watched Beyond, which was really good, really hoping they pick it up for a second season.

Then we started watching Grand Design, it's an HGTV type show, and it shows you super innovative houses and how people built them. It's a super impress show, as the episodes span over several years, crazy, they start filming something and then 4 years later they finally finish the project. Super cool.

Also Dark Matter, they just released season 3 yesterday, woo hoo!

We've already watched the ones above, and we moved onto Ozark, it is very Breaking Bad-ish, except with money laundering...super good!

All these shows are available on Netflix. Anyone see any of them?

What I'm listening to:

Currently books on tape. I just discovered our libarary has books on tape to "borrow". You download an app, enter your library number an viola, you have all these books at your finger tips. I started to listen to Hidden Figures. So far so good, although I do find myself not doing what I should be doing and just listening. There a bunch of books on there that I want to listen to. Obviously they don't have all of the books, but ours has a good selection.

What I'm doing this weekend:

We get to go to the Angels game and sit in the box seats, woo hoo! Mr. got two tickets from work, and then told the admin if she had any more he'd like one more, since he was taking Baby Fox, and Mini Fox was semi-heart broken. But then someone gave back both of their tickets, so now we get to make it a family affair.

Plus Sunday we're going to see Ninjago, the kids are excited.

What I'm looking forward to next month: 

Well Fall weather, fall clothes, bring on the sweaters and warm things.
Bonus Question: What TV show are you most excited about this fall?

Grey's Anatomy and This is Us. Really, who isn't excited for This is Us, it kills me that we got rid of our cable at the end of last season, so now we have to wait an extra day before we can watch anything on Hulu, darn.
