Ground Breaking Ceremony

We finally celebrated the ground breaking for our new school.  It took several years to get here- so much work from so many people.  So exciting and so necessary- definitely a BIG FAVE from this week!











All the Halloween Prep Fun

This is an addition this year...the "Peeper"...and we are all scared by him...well especially Pidge ;) We are surprising Lea with this, this weekend..hope to catch her off guard/scare her and waiting for to say, "I need him!"  Ha ha!!!  Friends?  You actually put him in a window and he taps on the window when the motion detector signals him...it is crazy scary!

Carpool Book Club



I thought I would join Narci for her fun monthly linkup again.  It is the last Thursday of the month and time for Carpool Book Club.  Linking up with this lovely lady HERE


Here are some recent reads






The Silent Wife

Oh boy I was so excited to blast through this one.  As I was reading, I was saying to myself, FINALLY another book as good as The Girl On The Train.  It was a mystery thriller and I could not put it down.  I also found out that there is a movie coming out- For the Win!  Cannot wait. Friends...you have to pick this one up!








Right Behind You


Okay...was it just me?  I couldn't get through it.  Doesn't the title sound so scary and thrilling?  Friends?  BOR-ING!  I wonder if I am alone...I pushed and pushed and just couldn't do it so of course I would not personally recommend this one

 





Foul Play At The Fair

 I just started this one and it seems like it is going to be a fun, light and easy little read that will continue getting me into the Fall spirit!

 

What are you reading?  If you have been reading my blog for a little bit, you know I LOVE your suggestions and always follow them!

What's Up Wednesday (September 27, 2017)





It is time for my favorite linkup of the month- What's Up Wednesday!  We are answering the questions above.  As always, linking up with Mel, Shay and Sheaffer HERE

Here it goes....


What We Are Eating This Week

It has been unseasonably HOT here in New England.  It is strange to decorate for fall and Halloween with temps in the 80's BUT I will take it!  I am an "Eternal Summer" kinda girl.  Anyway, we kept dinners simple last week and we plan on doing the same this week and pretending it is still summer!  So....we are using the grill and grilling up some meat and making salads!

Monday- Steak with Coffee Rub and Greek Salad

Tuesday- Roasted Chicken, Brown Rice and Green Beans
Wednesday- Marinated Chicken Thighs and Garden Salad
Thursday- Citrus Shrimp Salads

Friday- Friday Night Pizza Night! 


What I'm Reminiscing About

My Babies...always...and how quickly time goes by...it kills me sometimes.....Here is a look back at our "Halloweens"











What I'm Loving

These Summer Temps!



What We've Been Up To

Eva returned to gymnastics!

Mama attended the Richard Marx and Rick Sprinfield show at The Bank of American Pavillion in Gilford with her PTA pals!

Diana has been cheering her heart out!

and tried out for The Nutcracker...she got cast as a party child and is extremely excited!

We attended our first annual neighborhood block party!

Diana started taking Saxophone lessons

and though her school council run was not victorious, it was a family affair and we had a blast helping her!


We enjoyed celebrating Black Out Cancer Week with Friends


and attending the Falsetti's Oktoberfest!

and Mama and Daddy enjoyed the Newport Wine and Food Festival


and while we were away, the girls had an exciting weekend with Mimi and Papa Pete- complete with Halloween Cookie making!

What I'm Dreading

The S Word...with temps in the 80's I am sure we don't have to worry about it for another month or so but hopefully more...I just don't like it..plain and simple



What I'm Working On

 Recruiting...Recruiting...Recruiting



What I'm Excited About

Our Risotto Night!  We are having friends over in a few weeks and having a sort-of contest where we will judge a few different risottos and have a fun night of food and games and I am sure plenty of laughs! 


What I'm Watching/Reading

Well, Vice Principals finally came back (insert Praise The Lord Hands Here) ;)


Dance Moms insanity continues....

Dancing With The Stars 25 just started- routing for Debbie Gibson of course!

Can't wait for the return of This Is Us and American Housewife this week too!

On Netflix, I LOVED LOVED LOVED Friends From College and can't wait for Season 2!

and finally, Diana and I are jumping into Glee- from the beginning- she is so obsessed with the theater, it is feeding that hunger.  I just mute the inappropriate parts or parts I don't think she is ready for.

I am reading....
Foul Play At The Fair by Shelley Freydont- so far so good!  I am loving that through blogging, I learned about some new fall mystery novels!


What I'm Listening To...

Believer is still on repeat around these parts...we originally dubbed it our Summer of 17 song...it has now become our family song


and another recent fave is Attention by Charlie Puth


What I'm Wearing


This warm weather lends itself nicely to all things Lilly in these parts!!  









and I actually looked back at the dresses from Newport the last three years and you know what?  Yep!  Lilly all the way....

2015
 
 2016


and this year, 2017


What I'm Doing This Weekend

Lots of cheer for Miss Diana- practice- a pep rally and a game and a dinner with friends mixed in!




What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month

All of the Halloween Fun....then as soon as Halloween night hits...it is time to turn on Hallmark!  Ha ha!!!


What Else Is New?

I love these two snuggle bugs :)


Bonus Question Of The Month: WHAT TV SHOW AM I MOST EXCITED ABOUT THIS FALL?

That is a TOUGH one but I would have to say This Is Us :)

So what have you been up to??  Can't wait to grab my coffee and read!
