What Up Wednesday

Hey Friends! Happy Hump Day to ya! I hope your week has been fascinate and filled with all the pumpkin things! Speaking of pumpkins we are about to head out to put some up from the store. I am so excited for the holiday season coming up this year! Mason is big enough to start enjoying it and get excited about it. Last year was fun because it was he first but he was too young. Plus D.C. away the whole holiday season so this is our first year to spend the holiday season together. Today’s post is not as totally random as yesterdays. Today I am linking up for a What Up Wednesday post! Here we go….

1. What Are We Eating:

Would answering anything pumpkin would just be too expected? Maybe so….

What up Wednesday

I am going with oatmeal! I’ve been all about the smoothies but with the cooler winter egg white oatmeal with nut butter has been perfectly warm and cozy.

2. What I’m Reminiscing About:

Being back home with the family! I miss them so much and cannot wait till we can live closer to them!

3. What I’m Loving:

The new Beautycounter mascaras! It is seriously a game changer!

What up Wednesday

80% of the ingredients in traditional mascaras are on Beautycounter’s NeverList, so the fact they’ve recreated this mascara is amazing in itself is amazing! 
What up Wednesday

The second and third one are after a sweaty workout!

4. What I’m Dreading:

Grad school……always grad school! I am scheduled to double up next term and seriously thinking about chickening out on that!

5. What I’m Excited About:

Hiking more this fall! Japan is so beautiful in the fall and the weather is getting perfect for hiking more. We are thinking about heading to the lakes at Mt. Fuji this week if the weather is good.

What up Wednesday

6. What I’m Listening too:

All the podcast! Listening to podcast keeps me sane some days as a SAHM! This one and this one are a couple of my new favorites!


7. What I’m Wearing:

This J.Crew denim jacket! I wish I had a better picture of it! It will be showing up on my Friday Faves soon no doubt! I purchased it new with tags on ThredUp for $22!


8. Bonus: Favorite Fall TV Show:

I need a new TV show! I hardly ever have time for TV but a girl can dream right?! I am late in the game but I’ve been into Fixer Upper lately.

Question: What new TV show are you into lately? Do you listen to podcast? Does your food change a lot with the seasons?

    I love true crime podcasts! They keep me interested all the time. Someone Knows Something season 2 and Up and Vanished are my favorites.
    Also I’m SO sad Fixer Upper is ending. I love Chip and Joanna so much.

        I’ll have to look up CaseFile. I didn’t like voice on the one I tried to listen to. He was monotone.

      Which ones do you listen to? I tried one and the voice just wasn’t working for me. WHAT? Fixer Upper is ending? I just watched the first episode a couple of weeks ago!

But I LOVE love love Fixer Upper and I can also keep it on in the background when I’m busy 🙂 I can’t believe they are ending though 🙁 did you see they’re selling their stuff in Target starting this year?!
