Halloween Celebrations Recap

We had quite a streak of Halloween celebrations this year!  I have to admit, I am glad it’s passed and that we’re moving on to Thanksgiving and Christmas (can you even believe we are here already?!), but we had so much fun while it lasted!  Here’s a little recap of all the fun we had:   Harvest Festival and Pumpkin Math Day  Last Thursday, we had such a fun (but-OMG-exhausting!) day at Ben’s preschool for their annual Harvest Festival, and then in[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday and Happy Halloween!

Hi Friends!  We had a big weekend of Halloween festivities, and Lord, we still have tonight to go!!  My little cuties are Anger, Joy, and Sadness from Inside Out, and Scott and I even joined in on the fun yesterday for our church Trunk or Treat! 🙂 The kids were really into their characters, haha! So this week has several quick and easy options, since nobody wants to sit down for a big dinner right before trick-or-treating, am I right?![Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hi Friends!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ours was a mixed bag- we had a great Friday afternoon with friends at our local pumpkin patch, but then Saturday morning Brantley and I were both struggling with sore throats and allergies!  But we stayed inside most of the day and rested, and started feeling a little better yesterday. Anyway, on this Meal Plan Monday, here’s what we are planning on eating this week: Salad Tacos and Spicy Black Bean Soup[Read more]

Things I Love: Ponchos

I have been pinning lots of fall cold-weather outfits lately, for inspiration and ideas for when I am getting dressed each day.  I have noticed a pattern in my favorites though– I am really digging shawls and ponchos this year!  There are so many styles and shapes, and the textures, prints, and weaves of the different fabrics really end up transforming the look of your outfit.  Here’s a look at some of my favorite looks I have pinned: Daily Chic The[Read more]

Pregnancy & Infant Loss Month: My Miscarriage

It’s hard to imagine these days, with my hours filled with carpool lines, cheerleading uniforms, legos, the toothfairy, sight words, and bedtimes, that there was a time of great loss in my life.  It’s hard to imagine when I look in the eyes of my three healthy children, that there was a time when I wasn’t sure that I would become a mother at all.  In honor of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Month, I thought I would repost my own personal connection to[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We lounged, watched a lot of football, I released some creative energy and did some DIY projects and painting, and we tried to prepare as we head back to school today after a great fall break!  And of course, after a week of taking it easy, we are jumping in head first with a CRAZY BUSY week ahead of us.  But at least our meal plan will attempt to keep us on[Read more]

Links I Love

Who doesn’t love a little online quiz or an infographic here and there?  So here are some of my favorite links across the interwebs to browse if/when you have the time… I am so into smoothies (and so are the kids!), and this infographic shows the proper layering technique for a properly blended smoothie.  Excellent! Times my kids want to talk to me. Homemade Hummus Hack.  Do you ever make your own hummus?  I am for sure going to try[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hi Friends!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We ushered in our Fall Break with a trip to our local small town Fall Festival, which was so much fun, and then took it easy the rest of the weekend.  We have been SO busy lately, so we have been looking forward to Fall Break for an opportunity to relax!  Anyway, we’ll be here a bit and gone a bit, but I still planned a decent little meal plan for the[Read more]

Five on Friday: Fall Break

Happy Friday, friends!  AND HAPPY FALL BREAK to my local friends!!  We have been SO READY for a nice break from school, and I swear, I feel like we just barely made it!  We have been working so hard, worn out, and just ready to not have a tight schedule to keep for the next week, at least!  And I thought that I hadn’t done a 5 on Friday link up in a lonnnnnnnng time, and decided to drop a[Read more]
