Things I Like

I have been wanting to do some kind of “gratitude journal” for some time.  A reminder of sorts that there is always something to be thankful for, and to remind myself, in times of stress and disappointment, that I have so many blessings in my life! So I am starting something new…a “Things I Like” list each week.  The list is comprised of different things that have made my life easier or more enjoyable during the week, or things that[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Were you buried in snow??  Or barely dusted like we were?  I have seen enough snow in my life that I would be *totally* fine if I never saw it again, but I want the kids to be able to at least get a little fun out in it!  But alas, maybe next time.  We stayed warm inside, and had a fun family day on Saturday, and then crafted pretty much[Read more]

Cheers to Friday

Happy Friday, friends!  It has been a long week, I am worn out, and ready for a lazy Friday night, and sleeping in tomorrow morning!  It’s a little early for a cocktail quite yet (though I am counting down the minutes), but here’s what I am saying CHEERS! to today! Cheers to a cozy weekend INSIDE with a fire, magnatiles, jammies, movies, and snuggling!  Despite this big snowstorm that’s forecasted for everyone else, nothing much is likely to happen in[Read more]

Hello (Meal Plan) Monday

Hello Friends, and Happy Monday!  I’m sharing my weekly meal plan today AND saying hello to a few things on this MLK Day! Hello William Ramsey Midkiff! I am an aunt again!!  My brother’s little man was born early, early Sunday morning, about a week before his due date!  He also came SO QUICKLY that my rock-star sister in law couldn’t get an epidural and delivered him in three pushes!  Little William was ready to enter the world, and was[Read more]

Midweek Randoms

Since I haven’t posted much lately, I’ve had a bunch of random things running through my head, but not much so important to devote an entire post to.  So here’s some randoms from our life lately…   The start of my December blog hiatus was this.  We lost our beloved Monkey on November 30th.  We were shocked and unprepared, and it just set December off on the wrong foot.  It kind of robbed us of our typical holiday spirit, and[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Happy Monday!  Sooo…evidently I like to over-promise and under-deliver as far as posting goes…so I’m going to quit saying what and when I’m posting and let’s just all hope for the best and maybe I’ll get more than one post out a week from now on!  But for today, here’s what we’re eating this week: Roasted Pork Tenderloin, Collard Greens, and Baked Beans We ate this yesterday for an easy Sunday night dinner, and it’s as simple as it is good.[Read more]

Happy New Year! (and Meal Plan Monday)

Hello!  Happy 2016!  And yes, I am still here!!  I unintentionally took December off, as it ended up being quite the roller coaster of a month. I’ll be recapping it all in a post later this week, in all it’s photographic glory. But as for today, I am back (hopefully for more than just today, h,aha) and ready to start the new year off on the right foot!  I am making resolutions (to be shared later), planning meals (planning today!)[Read more]
