Happy Halloween, Everyone! We are ready to hand out candy tonight to all of our trick or treaters!

But today, I am linking up with Mix and Match Mama for What’s up Wednesday to update you on what’s going on in the life of Claire!

What We’re Eating:

Sunday: Grill | Monday: Pulled Pork Sandwiches | Tuesday: Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli | Wednesday: Taco Soup | Thursday: Beef Pasta | Friday: Probably Date Night!

What I’m Reminiscing About:

All of the fun we’ve had in October. We’ve been trying to make the most of our month. See below for more details.

What I’m Loving:

I just got this Too Faced pumpkin spice makeup kit and I am in love. I didn’t even know this existed until a couple of weeks ago but I ordered it immediately because I’m a sucker for anything pumpkin. It was even better in person, I LOVE the colors in this palette and it is so good for everyday. It came with a full sized mascara (the best) a brush and a lip gloss for inly $49!!

What we’ve been up to:

This month has been SO busy. We have been doing stuff every weekend.

The last weekend of September we celebrated our anniversary.

Went to an Oktoberfest party.

And had a fun date day. Check out all of anniversary weekend here.

The first weekend of October we threw a little party for my Mom’s birthday.

We went to a pumpkin path on sunny day.

And then, my Dad and Step-Mom were in town and we walked around the Amanas, a cute German village with lots of cute shops.

We decorated for Halloween. See all of my decor here.

We spent a weekend watching football.

And this past weekend we went to Chicago to visit my sister. We ate at Parlor Pizza and I had this ice cream taco and it was as amazing as it looks. This is seriously the reason I picked this place because I wanted one so bad.

Later that night, my sister had a Halloween party so we brought out our halloween costumes for the year.

What I’m Dreading:

The days getting shorter! I hate coming home and it’s already dark. I like having bright evenings.

What I’m Working on:

Apart from my normal duties of my 9-5 job and running a household, I’ve been working on growing my instagram and being more efficient with my blogging tasks!

What I’m Excited About:

Just continuing to enjoy the rest of the “best months of the year.” This time of year there is so much to do and so much to look forward to!

What I’m Watching/Reading:

We are still watching Ozark on Netflix and it is really good. I am also making my way through Fixer Upper in the mornings. And of course we watch a lot of football and Halloween movies right now! I think I want to watch the new Sabrina the Teenage Witch show on Netflix.

I have been slacking on reading this month. I am currently about half way through Dunaway’s Crossing and I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I have more books planned for November!

What I’m Listening To:

A little Halloween music playlist as well as some broadway show soundtracks, I love show tunes!

What I’m Wearing:

Abercrombie Pullover. I got this on sale and I love it. So cozy! I haven’t bought anything from Abercrombie in years but I am loving this.

Loft long sleeve Blouse. Perfect for work!

Target restocked a version of this Leopard Sweater this year. It is on of my favorites! Snag it up before it’s gone again!

What I’m doing this weekend:

We don’t have anything on the calendar for once lol. So I will be taking down the Halloween specific decor and probably catching up on blog stuff and what not. Hopefully fitting in a little date night!

What I’m looking forward to next month: 

Thanksgiving! And then kicking off the Christmas season after that. November will be fairly calm around here before Thanksgiving so I”m hoping to enjoy the season.

What else is new:

Check out my first month’s recap of my favorite products I use every day. I am sharing one new product a week over on Instagram and then recapping every month here on the blog.

Thanks for catching up!
