June Favorites

{Collage created on Canva} Since today is the last day of the month, I thought I’d start a new series and share a few of my favorite products, movies, shows, recipes, outfits, etc. on the last day of each month.  So, without further ado, here are my June favorites! Hattie B’s Hot Chicken- Our trip to Nashville was memorable in so many ways, but we STILL can’t stop talking (and thinking!) about the hot chicken we got from Hattie B’s.  So[Read more]

Things I Love: High Heels & Gladiator Sandals

There is nothing that goes better with a breezy dress when it’s hot out than cute summer sandals.  And this summer, I am all about some block high heels and gladiator sandals!  Cute with dresses (like these and these) or shorts, I especially like sandals since you can buy a few different pairs for the season and not break the bank.  Here are five pairs that are on my radar! How cute are these nude block heel cut out sandals?![Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello, Friends!  I hope you had a nice weekend.  I had a SUPER busy end to last week but had a lovely, laid-back weekend.  We headed out to our local farmer’s market on Saturday, just to be rained out (boo), we ate a mediocre lunch at one of our previously favorite places (we’ll try again!), and then we went to a new little farm stand near our house and got bad corn.  BAD CORN!  Who even knew there was such[Read more]

Vintage Midi Dress + Five More Midi Dress Options

I know this will come as no big surprise, but I love getting dressed up for church.  I love to get dressed up anyway, so it’s not such a stretch for me, but I love that the vintage midi dress and slightly more conservative white collar dress styles are back in fashion and are a perfect look for Sundays.  The midi can be a tricky style for shorties like me to wear (I’m only 5’3″ when I stand up real straight :)), but[Read more]

Weekend in Nashville

Hello, friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and a great Father’s Day yesterday!  We got back from an awesome trip to Nashville yesterday, and I thought I’d share the details!  As I mentioned on Friday, Scott had a work conference, and the kids and I were so lucky to be able to tag along.  This was actually the first trip we’ve taken just the five of us, and it was quite the adventure!  And good preparation for a[Read more]

Happy Friday from Nashville!

Happy Friday, friends, and Greetings from Nashville!  Scott has a work conference here in the Music City this weekend, and the kids and I were really excited to tag along.  We got into town yesterday afternoon, and wasted no time in hitting up a barbeque joint, then walked around the city a bit, and took over the hotel pool!  The kids were most excited about just staying at the hotel!  Only Brantley has ever stayed in a hotel with us[Read more]

What I Wore + Another White Ruffle Dress

Hello Friends!  I am here today not only to share my week of outfits, but also to share the cutest white ruffle dress and white cold shoulder dress!  So let’s get to what I wore— So let’s lead off with some handmade goodness!  I made this Rachel Dress from See Kate Sew, and instead of long bell sleeves, I wanted a short sleeved version of the dress.  I have been wanting a short sleeved seersucker dress, and it’s hard to[Read more]

Five-Layer Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

One of my favorite birthday traditions that we have in our family is that I always make the birthday kid (or adult :)) a homemade birthday cake on their big day.  While I have no problem outsourcing a cake or cupcakes for school or their birthday party, I like to keep their actual cake on their actual birthday an in-house creation.  And the kids love it.  I’ve made several strawberry cakes with strawberry frosting (for the girls, and PS- Paula Deen’s recipe is REALLY good),[Read more]

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday!  And WHEW, what a weekend!  The kids were gone to Aiken visiting Nana and Pop and all their Luton cousins Thursday through Sunday, but we had so much going on, I stayed so busy!  Here’s a peek at what we did: I took the kids to meet my in-laws Thursday afternoon, and Scott headed out of town for a Friday work event.  I was totally on my own for the night!!  So I did a little solo shopping,[Read more]
