What I Wore

Hello Friends!  I’m here to share my first What I Wore post of the year!  Hooray!  Now, I have a disclaimer… the six outfits I’m about to post are not just from the past week.  Over the holidays, if I remembered to photograph my outfit I did, but it was few and far between, here and there.  But I figured I’d show what I’ve got this week and then attempt to post on a more regular basis going forward.  So[Read more]

What Worked in 2017 + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope y’all had a wonderful weekend.  We drove to South Carolina Friday night and visited with our Luton family on Saturday for a family reunion (photos coming soon!).  We drove home afterward and went to bed at 10:00 (a recent record for me- I’m typically a night owl!) because we were WORN OUT.  Sunday was for church and laundry, and even though the kids were out of school yesterday to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, there’s no[Read more]

Links I Love

Happy Friday!  We are headed to South Carolina this weekend for a Luton Family Reunion on Saturday, and then I plan to catch up on laundry on Sunday, and maybe even sneak a nap in!  What about you?  Big plans? I love finding fun links around the web to check out and share!  If you have a few moments in the carpool line or as you’re scrolling through your phone watching tv tonight, here are a few recent favorites: “The[Read more]

Scissorgate: 5 Years Later

Brantley and Grayson have been after me for a few weeks about getting their hair cut.  They both have extremely thick hair, and brushing the nests of knots out of their hair each morning is a chore that none of us enjoy.  So they have been lobbying for new short haircuts, and honestly, I was all for it.  I love getting a fresh, short cut every once in a while too (and actually, it’s been a long while, and I’m starting to get the[Read more]

Favorite Recipes of 2017

I did a LOT of cooking this past year, trying out TONS of new recipes, and also making a lot of tried and true ones too.  Today I’m sharing a collection of our favorite recipes from 2017!  What were your family favorites?  I’d love some more new ones to try for 2018! Roasted Cauliflower Tacos Squash Fritters, Corn on the Cob, Sliced Tomatoes, and Butter Beans Veggie Fried Rie, Fried Shishito Peppers, and Stir Fried Mushrooms Grilled Salmon with Dijon[Read more]

My Christmas Lesson

I had a horrible day on December 23rd. Our holiday season was very busy this year.  We were gone a lot, we had a lot of obligations.  We had holiday parties, LOTS of work, we bought gifts, we did this, we did that, we celebrated, we were here, there, and everywhere, and up to our elbows in Christmas cheer.  It was fun, and there were jingle bells, and Christmas cookies, and twinkly lights, but man, did I overdo it.  And it all[Read more]

My Word for 2018

I have been working on goal setting for 2018 since November.  Last year, I was late to the game– once I decided I wanted to work on creating an action plan for setting and reaching my goals for 2017, the tool I wanted to use was sold out.  And from there, I just could not make a decision on exactly what I wanted to do, so I just let it go.  So when the end of the year rolled around,[Read more]

Happy New Year! 2017: Year in Review

Helllllooooooo friends!!  It was not my intention to take such a long break through the holidays… my WordPress blog server was down for almost two weeks and it took me a while to figure THAT out, and then it took them a while to get it fixed!  But here we are now, back up, and a lot to catch up on! I had several end-of-year blog posts planned that will just be published a bit late.  Nothing much more that you[Read more]

Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  Can you believe that Christmas is TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY??  **Cue stress and anxiety levels to skyrocket.**  This season is flying by unlike any year in the past.  I am trying my very best to savor it and slow down a bit, but it’s SO HARD.  But we did have our first family Christmas with the Luton side this past weekend, and we were able to relax and just hang out with family, and let the kids play[Read more]
