What's Up Wednesday- November 2022


Wow!  Here we are!  The end of November...one more month and we will be at the end of the year- a very challenging AND amazing and crazy year for us!  Here is what is up with us here in the Breton house!

What We're Eating This Week

Tuesday- Egg Rolls (also made in the air fryer)  and Basmati Rice 

I used the recipe HERE


Wednesday Make Your Own Pizzas

Thursday Breakfast for Dinner- Chocolate Chip Pancakes, Bacon and Berries

Friday Mama's Christmas Party being catered by Rig A Toni's - so plenty for all!



What I'm Reminiscing About


Our beautiful Nutcracker Weekend- will never forget it


What I'm Loving

The gift I chose for my Favorite Things Party

because that is exactly what it is- one of my favorite things!

What We've Been Up To

We had all of the Halloween Fun!

Mama helped send off one of the best in her industry- a mentor I will never forget

We decorated for Christmas earlier than ever- even before Halloween- eek! (Blaming it on this special Nutcracker year- next year we are going back to normal-whatever that is-ha!)


We have been lovin' on this guy!

We loved seeing Caden in The Outsiders

Date Walks Have Continued

as have Saturday Morning Starbucks Dates


Nutcracker Excitement Surrounded Us!

and we hosted "Clara's Nutcracker Brunch"

Rehearsals Got Intense but Mimi got to observe a battle rehearsal and loved it!


We LOVED seeing Eva in her Veteran's Day Concert- many tears were shed!

We Voted

Diana had a BLAST at her first Homecoming Dance!


I sewed by Goddaughter's First Pointe Shoes- Special Moment!



 There has been plenty of Hallmark!



We Rolled Clara's Hair for the last few times :(


and endured tough tech and dress rehearsals and prevailed ;)

We loved our very special AND very different Thanksgiving this year


and enjoyed every moment of our very special Nutcracker

What I'm Dreading

Not going there...living in the present...practicing Blind Faith

What I'm Working On

Generating some new business at work AND buying all of the gifts- can't wait to tell you I have my wrapping done- ahhh!




What I'm Excited About


All of the Christmas Magic and Traditions



 What I'm Watching/Reading


LOTS of Hallmark


Some new faves this year include....


A Holiday Spectacular- based on the Rockettes!


and Noel Next Door

a little more edgy than the traditional Hallmark movies


and my two books for November were


Go On Girl by Hilary Grossman

(Forest River PTA Book #1)

Oh this was so cute- love reading about moms in the same season as me- may go back and read more of the series- we shall see!



and It Starts With Us (The Sequel to It Ends With Us)

by Colleen Hoover


She does it again- thrilling- brilliant writing that keeps you on the edge of your seat with some romance mixed in!



What I'm Listening To


Sirius XM Holly and Holiday Traditions



What I'm Wearing


Workout Gear several times per week


Sparkly Tops for the Holidays

 A Long Silk Dress from Banana Republic Factory for Thanksgiving (wish I had a better pic/full body- will make sure I get one soon!)

 RED for the Nutcracker!


 What I'm Doing This Weekend


Hosting my Favorite Things Party on Friday Night



and having a night alone with my hubby in Boston- it has been TOO LONG! 


What I'm Looking Forward To Next Month


A Fresh Start...New Beginning...and getting ready to turn 50 next year! 



What Else Is New?


I think I covered it!  What's new with YOU?

I'll be celebrating that milestone b-day next year, too. My stars!! That number sounded so old five years ago (and every year before that). You have been up to so many great things. Thanks for taking us along for the ride! Love all of the pictures from your events.

Natasha said...

So much goodness on one post! I still can't imagine all of the work you all put into The Nutcracker but oh, do you get all the joy as well. And yes, I thought Noel Next Door was so good but yes, so gritty for Hallmark. But I loved it!

Andrea Nine said...

You are going to rock 50 my friend! You’ve had some exciting and fun times! Much deserved after the surgeries. Diana looked amazing in her homecoming dance dress!

Joanne said...

What a fun and full month you've had! You definitely deserve a little away time in Boston. I hope you both have a great trip.

Kelly said...

Diana's homecoming dress is everything!!! Hope she had the best time!
