Today I’m linking up with some fabulous women for What’s Up Wednesday!

The last Wednesday of every month we all answer these questions. This is my first time linking up and I am so excited to join in with these ladies!


The last Wednesday of every month we all answer these questions. This is my first time linking up and I am so excited to join in with these ladies!

What we’re eating this week

This week is a let’s-clean-out-the-fridge-meals menu plan. Ha! We are traveling on and off for the next 2 weeks (Peter for the next 3 weeks!) so I’m trying to use up everything we have so none of it goes to waste. I did make some delicious healthy pumpkin muffins on Sunday and we have been loving having them as a snack this week. Stay tuned, I’m sharing the recipe tomorrow!

What I’m reminiscing about

Currently reminiscing about all of the trips we have been blessed to take over the years. We are trying to save up money so we haven’t traveled anywhere since our honeymoon. Peter and I both have the travel bug but since we can’t travel we are reminiscing and dreaming about where to travel next!

What I’m loving

I’ve been on a mission to find a way to keep our house clean-ish during the week. Not obsessive but at least so isn’t quite so overwhelming to clean each weekend. I’ve been doing this for the last 2 weeks and I’m loving it. It makes me feel so much better during the busy work week and I am not going crazy cleaning each weekend. Also, CANDLES. They make everything so cozy. I’ve been lighting them almost every night and they make me so happy.

What we’ve been up to

NEW ENGLAND DESIGN CO!!! We have been spending a ton of time on getting the Instagram shop and Etsy shop all set up so you can all receive some amazing goods! Check it out, I am completely obsessed with this new venture.

What I’m dreading

Actually nothing right now! If you had asked me last week it would have been the mole extraction. My anxiety was through the roof! But this week I am calm and have so many wonderful things to look forward to.

What I’m working on

I’m really taking this time to get myself into a rhythm. I am always trying to juggle my full time job, home and being present on this little blog. It can be tough sometimes. I am working on getting organized and planning ahead (especially for the blog) so I can better manage my time and life. Also, again, New England Design Co. We have been working tirelessly on getting everything up and running!

What I’m excited about

We are going to Newport to celebrate my best friends wedding this weekend and then the following weekend we are headed to Maryland to visit my sister. I’m also just excited about all of the creative opportunities and risks Peter and I are taking. This blog always has me so excited because it is such a passion project for me.

What I’m watching/reading

Together Peter and I are currently catching up on Ray Donovan. We are behind two seasons so it’s been amazing to binge it and catch up on everything we’ve missed. SO GOOD, if you’ve never watched. For myself, I’m watching Gilmore Girls. I just started it a month ago and am completely obsessed. I watch it every day as I’m working and it just makes me happy. I’ll be sharing all of my books next week but I just started Big Little Lies – love it so far!

What I’m listening to


I’ve been listening to the French Cooking Pandora station non-stop. I had it playing all day Sunday as I was cooking and working on New England Design Co. It just makes me so happy and makes everything feel cozy. I shared about it in this blog post, thanks to Mix and Match Mama for the recommendation. It’s a must listen!

What I’m wearing


Jeans, plaid, loafers, stripes, gingham, layers, booties. All fall staples, all. the. time. Like if I could wear these things year round I 100% would!

What I’m doing this weekend

We are heading to Newport, RI for our wonderful friends Bianca and Billy’s wedding. I can’t wait to get dressed up with my man and celebrate the love of these two!

What I’m looking forward to next month

Family!!! My cousins, aunts and uncles all come into town for Thanksgiving and we always have the best time. I can’t wait until we are all together again!

What else is new

Not much! Super busy but in the best way possible. Peter and I are both pursuing passion projects and that brings me such joy. To be able to work and explore these opportunities is such a blessing and I love it so very much.

What is your favorite Halloween memory/picture/tradition?

Well, growing up our neighborhood was the absolute best trick-or-treating hood in town. I mean, TONS of kids, it was amazing. Our friends used to always come over to our house for pizza and then we would all head out with our dads to scoop up some serious candy. Now, Peter and I still get pizza (shocker!) every Halloween. It just seems to go together and it totally reminds me of being a kid!

And that’s What’s Up with the Adams! See you tomorrow for some delicious muffins!

Love, The Adams
