Meal Plan Monday

Happy Monday, friends!  Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for the week ahead!  I’m not sure I’m quite ready (pretty much am never ready for Monday), but at least I know what we’re having for dinner each night! Spaghetti and Caesar Salad We haven’t had pasta since before Christmas, and since spaghetti is Brantley’s favorite meal, she has been lobbying hard lately to have it for dinner!  I decided to give in and we ate it last[Read more]

Handmade Closet: Two Dress Staples

As soon as Christmas is over, and certainly after Valentine’s Day, my mind starts to wander away from jackets, scarves, sweaters, and boots, and towards lighter weight dresses, short sleeves, and sandals!  And though I really loved all the clothes I made for myself over this past fall and winter, I am ready to challenge myself again with some beautiful new spring and summer clothes! As I look through all the beautiful and amazing new spring patterns from my favorite[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hi Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Here’s what’s on our menu for this week: Ham, Southern Fried Cabbage, and Broccoli Ham and broccoli are old stand-bys in this house, but I have just rediscovered sauteed cabbage as a tasty and easy side dish.  My mom used to make it a lot when I was growing up, and I used to love it.  I actually made this meal last night, and the cabbage was great!  It sautes in[Read more]

Hi Friends!  And Happy Friday!  We have been on Winter Break this week (LOVE our school calendar!) and have been pretty lazy.  These breaks always come at just the right time, when we just need to lay around, refuel and recharge!  So here’s what I’m liking this week.  Happy Weekend! 1. Cheese Dip Duh.  My FAVE combination is the Queso Blanco Velveeta with Jalapenos, and the Hot Rotel.  We like a lot of heat!  It got to a point where[Read more]

Happy Monday, friends!  I hope you had a good weekend, and a wonderful Valentine’s Day!  We had a very low key day, fill of chocolate treats, hugs, a yummy steak dinner, and lots of love!  And now we are OFF all week for Winter Break (hooray for our awesome school calendar!!!), but I’m not really interested in cooking the whole time!  We have several easy dinners planned for this week.  Here’s what we’re eating for the rest of the week:[Read more]

Deep Dark Fears

I read about the greatest Instagram account on one of my favorite blogs the other day (Cup of Jo), called Deep Dark Fears.  They are illustrations of people’s anxieties and irrational fears, and I automatically related to it completely.  Thought I’d share a few deep dark fears of my own (which may or may not be completely irrational :))… When I am shopping in department stores, I am always so afraid that I will turn too quickly and one of[Read more]

Happy Monday!  Hope y’all had a wonderful weekend.  We played in the park on Saturday, then after a day full of church on Sunday, we cooked up a Super Bowl Party Smorgasbord for dinner!  So we cheated sufficiently, and are now back to our healthy weekly menu (no cheese dip allowed :)).  Here’s what we’re eating this week! Dijon Baked Chicken, Steamed Broccoli, and Garlic Butter Mushrooms I thought this chicken baked with dijon mustard, maple syrup (I’ll probably use[Read more]

Things I Like

Hi Friends!  Happy Friday!  Here to share my list of Things I Like this week before we get this weekend started! 1. Hibiscus Tea- We have started drinking tea pretty regularly, and Hibiscus Tea is a new fave!  It’s supposed to be “cleansing” and “detoxifying” and I don’t know about all that, but I just like how it tastes! 2. GREASE LIVE!! Did you watch it?  Did you like it??  At first I thought it was good but wasn’t going to live[Read more]

Little Things

Everyone has those days when you just wake up on the wrong side of the bed, and nothing goes right, me included.  I am trying to focus on the good instead of getting bogged down in the bad (though I have only been moderately successful thus far), because not all days are good, but there is good in everyday, right?  So I am trying to be thankful for all the small things in life that make every day good.  Here[Read more]

Meal Plan ummm Tuesday

Hi Friends!  Got a bit of a late start to the week (can we just start over?), and am just now getting to my weekly meal plan post.  So here’s what we’re having for dinner this week: Asian Beef with Snow Peas and Broccoli, and Cauliflower Rice The Pioneer Woman never disappoints!  I got her newest cookbook for Christmas, and this is the first recipe I have tried out of it (I made it for dinner last night), and it[Read more]
