The Bible Study Box

I am a newbie to, but a passionate advocate of, Bible Studies.  Last summer, I joined a group of preschool mom friends as we formed a Bible Study group, and have loved growing in my faith and learning more and more about Jesus, and God, and Christianity, and myself than I could ever have imagined during these studies.  Which made me SO excited when I saw that a childhood friend of mine has formed a new company called, The Bible Study[Read more]

Key Lime Pie Pops

Once the weather starts to get warmer, one of our favorite things to do is eat popsicles out on the front porch after dinner.  Now, don’t get me wrong, a good ole Bomb Pop or classic cherry-grape-orange twin pops definitely do the trick, and we get those at the store sometimes too, but why even pay the $3 when you can so easily make your own popsicles with stuff you already have in your fridge and pantry?! When I saw this recipe[Read more]

Fruity Wine Slush

  During the winter, I pretty much stick to red wine.  But when it starts getting warm, my alcohol preferences broaden substantially!  I like white wines, cold beers, and the occasional cocktail.  And over the weekend, I whipped up a super easy drink that was refreshing and fun, and perfect for sipping on while watching the kids play in the yard! My Fruity Wine Slush couldn’t be easier to make, and it only takes TWO ingredients!  And no liquor store[Read more]

Happy Monday, friends!  Hope you had a nice weekend!  We were outside in the glorious spring sunshine for a lot of it, and it made for a lovely time.  But now we’re back to the grind, but one week closer to the summertime! Here’s what we’re having for dinner this week! Boursin Pasta with Asparagus, Caesar Salad, and Ciabatta Bread The picture is actually Boursin Pasta with Peas, but to be honest?  Peas are one of maybe three foods that[Read more]

Amanda’s 2016 Spring Must Haves

I love seasonal clothes shopping.  One of my favorite things about the two major season changes (fall and spring), is looking at all the new trends and styles and picking a few new things to add to my wardrobe!  A few years back, I started making a list of my seasonal “must haves” so that when I go out shopping, I actually buy the items I really want instead of impulse buys that I don’t really need (I used to buy[Read more]


I have been so excited about the weather and how lovely and warm it has been outside, and all it makes me want to do is hole myself up in my upstairs sewing room and make billions of springtime dresses!!  I have been perusing all the beautiful new patterns and going through my list of old favorites to compile my Spring Handmade Closet challenge for myself this year! I started this semi-annual challenge for myself last fall (see that list[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hi Friends!  Back to reality after Spring Break, womp-waaaaahhhh.  But that’s okay, we had a GREAT spring break (will share a post soon!), and I think the kids are actually excited to get back to school and gt back to soccer!  But still, I am anxious for summer to be here!! I had slacked quite a bit in the last few weeks on my meal plans, but we are back on the healthy eating wagon, so I am back to[Read more]

What I Wore Wednesday

Hi Friends!  It’s been a few weeks since I did a WIWW post, so I have a bunch of pictures to share.  If you’re new to my blog or haven’t been reading long, I started following Lindsay at The Pleated Poppy years ago, and her What I Wore Wednesday posts.  She started posting the outfits she wears each week to encourage herself to get out of the stay at home mom pajamas and yoga pants rut, and start getting dressed[Read more]
