What’s Up Wednesday {October 2017}

I’m linking up with Mel, Shay and Sheaffer for some random monthly fun.

What we’re eating this week…

Monday – Salmon patties and carrot fries

Tuesday – Leftover Shabbat stew

Wednesday – MNO with the girls so I’m eating out and hubby is ordering food.

Thursday – Burger and roasted veggies.

Friday – Crock pot lemon chicken, cous cous and sweet potato souffle.

Saturday and Sunday – out

What I’m reminiscing about…

Spending time with little Sarah at mommy and me. It feels like just yesterday we were doing all the things Jacob and I are doing at mommy and me.

20132017What I’m loving…

Spending time Sarah. We’ve having some great mommy and me date nights while we hit the bat-mitzvah circuit.

What we’ve been up to…

The kiddos have already got to wear their Halloween costume a couple times this week. Sarah is Kooky cookie from Shopkins and Jacob is trash truck.

What I’m dreading…

Looking for a new babysitter. Our babysitter got a job and is no longer available to watch the kids. It took J a long time to trust our sitter so I’m worried it’s going to take a long time once again.

What I’m working on…

Self care. It’s so so hard for me to take care of my self. Sure I take the time to go out with my girlfriends here and there but scheduling an appointment for myslef or getting things done for myself has become so hard. I have waves where I take care of my self and then months go by and I haven’t done anything for myself. I’m realty going to try and make those appointments, not cancel them when kids stuff come up and take care of me.

What I’m excited about…

Getting all fancy and wearing these shoes for my sister’s wedding. What I’m watching/reading…

Hubby and I look forward to Thursday nights!

What I’m listening to…

Wolves by Selena Gomez and MarshmelloWhat I’m wearing… I’m loving my new prAna pieces! You can too by using my code MMSKF17 for 15% off your total order. Click here for more info.

What I’m doing this weekend…

Boo-ing neighbors, attending a few Halloween events and carving pumpkins.

What I’m looking forward to next month…

My sister’s wedding!!!!!! Ahhhh I can’t wait!What else is new…

I am loving my laser cut pumpkin I ordreed a few weeks ago. I’m thinking of painting it, but not sure if I should just leave as is. Thought? Question of the month is: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving side dish?

I’m not a huge fan of Thanksgiving food. There I said it.

 I find the food boring and bland. But if I had to pick something it would be the stuffing. I love the endless possibilities.Happy Wednesday!

Color Inspiration {October 2017}

I’m linking up with my friend, Whitney for our monthly Color Inspiration.

If you blogged too make sure you link up at the bottom of the post!

This month we are talking all things BLACK.

ONE

I’m a big fan of hats! I wear them to cover up a messy hair day, it blocks the fun and because I think they are cute. My favorite summer hat is an all BLACK baseball hat from here. I also like wearing a BLACK wide brim hat in the winter from here.

TWO

I’m not much of a make up person, but if I’m going to wear any kind of make up it’s going to be mascara. I usually buy BLACK and switch off between a few brands. Currently I’m using Revlon Dramatic Definition.

THREE

We went to the outlets last week for shoes and I stumbled upon this super cute BLACK bag.

FOUR

I really love a mask after a long day. I don’t get to do it often, but when I do I really enjoy it. Recently I tried the charcoal masks. Its super weird at first. It looks like BLACK paint, but feel so good on. Happy Thursday, friends!

Make sure to grab the graphic and link up with us!

Stranded – Footwear

Stranded WithOnce a month I link up with other bloggers where we blog about three things we would take with us if we were stranded on a deserted island.  In the last few months our topics have included:

What 3 medicine cabinet items would you take?

What 3 Netflix series would you take?

What 3 famous people would you take?

And today…

We are talking about footwear.

During the summer I can be found wearing different type of sandals. I’m not much of a flip flop kind of girl.

My current favorites are from here.Screen Shot 2016-08-09 at 9.06.24 PM I love fringe! So as soon as I saw these I knew they were going to come home with me. Between the sandals being easy to wear and comfortable it’s a win-win.

I also wear a few sandals from here.Screen Shot 2016-08-09 at 9.10.40 PMIf you have ever worn a shoe from this company you know how comfortable they are. I also like a t-strap sandal when I’m more active with the kids.

When it starts to get cooler I wear these. Screen Shot 2016-08-09 at 9.27.06 PMIt’s a great transition shoe for those cooler days and nights in So Cal.

When it gets cold I wear Ugg boots and rain boots.Screen Shot 2016-08-09 at 9.38.04 PM Screen Shot 2016-08-09 at 9.38.51 PMThis year I want to get these.  Screen Shot 2016-08-09 at 9.37.30 PMWhat three shoes would you like to be stranded with on a deserted island?

Let’s Talk: Moms

lets talk

My favorite part about linking up with other bloggers is seeing what they wrote. 

This week we are talking about…Moms.

Since Hebrew is my first language I call my mom ema (E-ma) in Hebrew.

My ema is one of a kind! She is BEAUTIFUL, shy, sweet and gentle. I find myself often thinking or acting like my ema when I am with my kids. She would probably melt if she knew that ;) Hi ema (she is one of my big blog supporters)!

Being the first born, I had lot of one-on-one time with her.FullSizeRender(1)FullSizeRender

My ema was a stay at home mom most of my life. She only started working when I was a senior in high school. She was always there for me. My ema is not Miss Pinterest, but she always made a big deal of birthdays and holidays. Our favorite thing to do was bake. Most of the time it came from a box (keeping it real!).IMG_5811 IMG_5815FamFriendPro86183573_10150415232265571_7070465_n

She is also a great safta (grandma in Hebrew)!! She loves my kids like they are her own.

220275_10150183422647969_2533955_oIMG_6502 - michal We speak daily.

If we don’t talk within 24 hours she gets worried.

It’s cute (and strange at times). However, I look forward to her calls. Even if at times they are about nothing.

Now don’t get me wrong. It’s not always rainbows and butterflies around here. Sure we argue and disagree at times, but no matter what happens in my life my ema is there for me.

She is my best friend.

I miss her.

A lot.
