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

What’s Up Wednesday–November

Wednesday, November 28, 2018



We’ve just about reached the end of November. It was another busy month, made more difficult by the weather leaving us stranded in NJ after Thanksgiving weekend! I hope by the time you read this we will be on our way back home. Here’s what we’ve been up to.

1. What We’re Eating This Month…

This week included Thanksgiving so I obviously have to share some of the food we ate!


We also hung out at our brother-in-law’s bagel store a good amount!


2. What I’m Reminiscing About…

This month I finished blogging about New Orleans (Garden District, Laura Plantation) and shared about my trip with Gabbie to Laura Ingalls Wilder’s House in Mansfield, MO.

3. What I’m Loving…

I love that we got to see my two great-nieces and some of our best friends while we were in NJ!


4. What We’ve Been Up To…

We celebrated my birthday, visited the Steamboat Arabia, and headed to NJ for Thanksgiving. I took pictures at the Lenexa Spillway. We also visited a new museum called the Illusions Museum, and had some time in NYC, both of which I will share more about later!

5. What I’m Dreading…

As always after being away there is that catch up time where you have to get yourself caught up and back to normal…with the extra days in NJ this will be even more difficult than usual!

6. What I’m Working On…

Getting all the kids Hanukkah presents ready, my gratitude journal / bullet journal, and my list of 19 things to do before 2019.

7. What I’m Excited About…

Getting back home. Hanukkah.

8. What I’m Watching / Reading…

Basically the same as last month! Some of my favorites right now include 9-1-1, Manifest, This Is Us, New Amsterdam, A Million Little Things, and Criminal Minds.

As usual, you can see my latest book reviews here, and I’ll be sharing a few more soon.

9. What I’m Listening To…

I was so happy that Billy Joel Radio was extended into November! They should really keep it on forever.

10. What I’m Wearing…

As I’m writing this we’re all stuck in pajamas because all of our clothes that we brought to NJ have been worn and are being washed!

11. What I’m Doing This Weekend…

I don’t think we have any plans at this point.

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

There are probably going to be a bunch of fun events for Hanukkah, so I’m looking forward to that!

13. What Else Is New…

In case you missed it, check out my posts about being Jewish during the Christmas season, gratitude, fall in Weston, MO, and swimming in cold weather!

Also, because I usually share my latest 52 Frames Photos in this post, here are my recent submissions:
