What's Up Wednesday

So I've been at a conference this week which is why I haven't posted, but I got back earlier than expected today and decided to go ahead and link up with Shay and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday. I love link-ups and this is one of my favorites.

1. What we're eating this week

I've been at a teaching conference in Chattanooga this week so we've been eating out every night this week.

Last night I had parmesan crusted mahi with parmesan mashed potatoes and pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. It was AMAZING.

2. What I'm reminiscing about

I've been reminiscing about our wedding day. It was a little over 4 months ago and I still day dream about how perfect of a day it was. I apologize for the picture overload. :)

3. What I'm loving
I just got home from my conference and it feels SO good to be home. I had a great time, but there is no place like home.

4. What we've been up to
I've been at a conference this week with some co-workers from school. This was my first conference so I was hesitant to go, but I had a great time and learned some great strategies that I can use in my math classes. We had so much fun hanging out and exploring the city of Chattanooga. I'll be sharing more details tomorrow. :)

5. What I'm dreading
I have my 2nd observation next Tuesday and it will be my first time being observed by our principal. I'm dreading all the stress that comes along with planning for this lesson, as well as getting observed. I will be a nervous wreck until after the lesson is over so I'm most definitely dreading it.

6. What I'm working on
I'm about to start working on my lesson plan for my observation next week.

7. What I'm excited about
I'm SO excited about the new episodes of Gilmore Girls coming out in November. I saw the trailer yesterday and I got a little emotional because I'm THAT excited. November 25th can't get here soon enough.

8. What I'm watching/reading

I've been watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix for the past month. I'm trying to rewatch all of them before the premiere of the new episodes, and this just makes me more excited.

I bought the book The Girl on the Train on my nook this past Sunday so that I could read it when I got free time at the conference this week, BUT I left and forgot my nook at home so I haven't been able to start it yet. I was so bummed when I realized I had left it. I plan to start reading it sometime this evening and I'm super excited.

9. What I'm listening to

I've been listening to a lot of for King & Country lately. I've always liked listening to this band on Way FM. Joel from for King & Country came to speak to our church this past Sunday. Since then, I have been listening to them even more.

10. What I'm wearing
I wore this to a birthday party I went to this past Saturday. This is the American Eagle sweater in gray I mentioned in my Friday favorites a few weeks ago. I have it in 4 different colors. (Please excuse the bad picture quality. I had Chase take this and the lighting was a little off).

 I wore this outfit to church on Sunday. I LOVE this top. I bought it a few weeks ago at a boutique in our mall called Francesca's and it's now one of my favorite tops.

I wore these two outfits during the conference I was at this week.

11. What I'm doing this weekend
I'm not sure if we're going on Friday or Saturday, but one day this weekend I'm going "Haunted Housing" with my best friend Kelci and Chase.
Sunday I'll go to church and lunch with Chase and then head home for some lazy time.

12. What I'm looking forward to next month
I'm looking forward to so much next month. I don't even know where to start. The first weekend in November we have a 4 day weekend and I'm definitely looking forward to a few days off. I'm also looking forward to Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is one of my FAVORITE holidays. I love getting together with my family and spending some quality time together. This will also be my first Thanksgiving married to Chase so I'm looking forward to starting some new traditions with him. The Gilmore Girls premiere is on Thanksgiving Break as well so of course I'm looking forward to that. :)

Bonus Question: Favorite Halloween Memory/Tradition
Some of my favorite Halloween memories include trick-or-treating with my parents as a kid, and having Halloween movie nights with my family as I got older. I'm hoping Chase and I can start some new traditions this year.
