Not In Jersey: What’s Up Wednesday–September What’s Up Wednesday–September - Not In Jersey

What’s Up Wednesday–September

Wednesday, September 27, 2017



1. What we’re eating this month…

I drank a few bottles of this…

Dinner at the Jewish Culture Fest

We went apple picking and my brother-in-law sent some of his home made honey for our Rosh Hashanah celebrations! We’ve also had apple pie, apple cake, and apples dipped in caramel!

2. What I’m Reminiscing About…

We didn’t make it to the sunflower field this year. There are so many fall fun things to do and it’s so busy with the fall holidays that we rarely get to do them all. So I’m remembering last year’s sunflower field visit!

3. What I’m Loving…

Getting to spend time with our friends during Rosh Hashanah was nice. I’m also enjoying my fall décor, even if it’s not quite fall weather out, and my new blog look!

4. What We’ve Been Up To…

Over Labor Day, we took a short trip to Omaha, which I have yet to blog about! We went to the Jewish Culture Fest, we went apple picking, and we celebrated Rosh Hashanah. The kids have been adjusting back to school.

We cut their hair after this!

5. What I’m Dreading…

Yom Kippur is this Saturday, which is a full day fast day – no food or drink all day. It is difficult and I always dread it. The next few holidays coming up are going to be fun, but the fall holiday season always gets a bit old after 3 in a row, especially when they each are 3 days in a row of no internet (I am offline for these holidays!)

6. What I’m Working On…

Fitting a lot of fun fall activities into our schedule…

Completing my fall wardrobe…any leads on boots that have stretchy fabric in the leg area but aren’t above the knee?

Preparing for upcoming holidays…

Finishing the books I got from the library – too many all at once!

7. What I’m Excited About…

More time with friends and family coming up and fall weather actually getting here.

8. What I’m Watching / Reading…

So I decided to rewatch Friends. It’s crazy how some of the episodes I’ve seen a ton of times and some I barely remember. I still crack up at it, and it’s interesting watching it as a person older than the characters instead of a person younger than the characters like I was when I first watched the show!

For what I’ve been reading, click here, and tune in next week for more!

9. What I’m Listening To…

My car radio is set to the classic rock station.

10. What I’m Wearing…

I haven’t yet worn the skirt on the right because I’m not sure what to wear with it! I’ve worn the other three pieces already though!

We had a few days cool enough to wear jeans / leggings. I just got these new booties, but I can’t decide if I like them or not!


11. What I’m Doing This Weekend…

Saturday is Yom Kippur. Sunday we need to put up our Sukkah and I really want to go to the cider mill and the pumpkin patch!

12. What I’m Looking Forward To Next Month…

[I feel like I’m just repeating what I said above under what I’m excited about…] Fall activities and fall weather. And hopefully participating in this photo challenge:

New Mini Fall Photo Challenge

13. What Else Is New…

Mug Love Exchange

I recently participated in a mug swap, for which the reveal day is tomorrow, but I wanted to include mine here. I was paired with Lacey, a sweet blog friend of mine, and she sent me two amazing mugs! They are Rae Dunn and one says Breathe and the other says Focus. She also included a bag of salted caramel coffee – yum! And a pack of cute napkins.


Thanks Lacey! I hope the mug I sent you didn’t break in shipping…I realized I didn’t package it very well!

Bonus Question: What TV Show Are You Most Excited About This Fall?

This is Us!

And Chicago Fire!

What’s been up with you lately?
