VEO Gala Recap + Weekly Menu Plan

Hello Friends!  Happy Monday!  Last week was a rough one- with Scott and Ben both home sick all week (strep for Ben, upper respiratory infection for Scott), AND Valentine’s Day, AND life and work that didn’t stop, so when Friday arrived, and the boys were starting to feel a bit better we were glad for a break! Brantley had her first softball practice of the season, so we spent a bit of time out at the ballfield, and got home[Read more]

Pray for Parkland

I was telling my mother in law last night, that I hadn’t watched much about the school shooting in Florida yesterday.  With three small children all in elementary school together, I have to give myself a bit of space, especially as news is unfolding, when it comes to events like this.  My anxiety goes through the roof and I simply cannot let my mind go to those places. But as I was thinking about it later, yes, I temporarily need to[Read more]

Spring Blouses

Please bring me some warm temps, Mother Nature.  I have never been so ready for springtime (it’s like all I’ve been talking about, ha!).  Between the cold winter (the fluctuating back and forth is DRIVING ME CRAZY) and all the sickness going around, I need some warm weather and fresh air, and maybe some pretty spring blouses to lift my spirits! I love love love stripes (always), and am loving the statement sleeves I’m seeing all over this season.  Ruffles, lace-up[Read more]

Spring Haircut

I’ve got the itch.  My hair has been long for quite a while now, and is just not working for me anymore.  I think I’m ready to get an updated cut and give it a good whack!  Nothing like a new haircut for Springtime, right?  Now I just have to decide what I’m going to do.  Here are some favorites: Thoughts??  I’m clearly loving texture and long bob styles.  I’m also up for some color suggestions…thinking about having a professional[Read more]

Four Years of Father-Daughter Dances + Weekly Meal Plan

On Friday night, Scott went to his FOURTH Father-Daughter Dance with his little girls (WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE). It’s Brantley’s and Grayson’s favorite night of year!  Fancy dresses, (a little bit of) makeup, (just barely) high heels, and a special night out with their Daddy. As I was posting this year’s pictures, I was reminded of years past.  Anyone remember this sweet little girl? Brantley’s first Daddy-Daughter Dance was in kindergarten, and I thought she looked so, so beautiful[Read more]

Dreaming of Springtime

Maybe it’s because we’ve had so much cold weather this winter (I know, a cold winter, weird?!  But it’s been much colder than normal by Georgia standards!), and I am not typically like this, but I am dreaming of springtime!  Warmer temps, lighter layers, and closer to summer break!  I am still compiling my Spring Must Haves for the season, but here are a few items that I am coveting once that warmer weather does finally arrive! I think this pretty[Read more]

My Favorite Instant Pot Recipes + Weekly Meal Plan

If you follow along with any of my meal planning or recipe posts, you know that I looooooove my Instant Pot.  It’s the electric pressure cooker that I got Christmas 2016  and used it so much over the last year that I leave it out on the countertop all the time.  We use it almost daily for one thing or another and is easily my favorite appliance in the kitchen.  I know it was a very popular Christmas gift again this[Read more]

Currently…

I haven’t written up a Currently post in a while (this one and this one were the last ones!)!  Here’s what’s currently on my mind and on my heart… Appreciating- The amazing Children’s Ministry staff at our church.  The kids LOVE going on Wednesdays and Sundays (and at minimum one of the three cries when we leave), and Gracie and Brantley just joined the Glee Club, which meets during our Sunday service (Ben’s not quite old enough yet).  So they are belting out their praise[Read more]

What I Wore

Hello friends!  I hope your week is going well so far!  I’m sharing my outfits for the week for What I Wore Wednesday.  I’m always inspired by Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy, and here’s what she says: “As a stay-at-home, work-at-home mom, I have always found it to be a struggle to put fashion before comfort – I’d rather stay cozy and lounge in grubby clothes all day – are you with me?!  But really, I don’t actually feel better. [Read more]

What We’ve Been Watching + Weekly Meal Plan

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a great weekend!  We took it easy- did some laundry, tidied the house, took Brantley for her softball observation on Saturday, then returned back home for more relaxing.  Sunday was super rainy and yucky, and as much as we were tempted to stay in bed, we made it to Sunday school and church.  But that was as productive as I got- I took a pretty solid Sunday afternoon nap on the couch!  Woke up to[Read more]
