The Best Things About Summer 2017

Today is the last day of summer, and I’m taking it harder than I had expected.  In years past, I have been a little sad, but ready for the kids to go back to school.  This year, I’m just sad!  I think it’s partially the fact that this summer really was so short, also that Ben will be going to Pre-K at the elementary school with the girls, and partially the fact that I feel like the kids have really grown[Read more]

July Favorites + Weekly Meal Plan

CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE TOMORROW IS AUGUST????  iIt blows me away that tomorrow is the last day of our summer break, and the kids will be going back to school on Wednesday.  It’s definitely bittersweet for me- I am ready for a return to routine and schedule, but I love the laid-back summer days and will miss the kids when they’re at school (even though they drive me bananas sometimes).  More than anything, I am sad that they are growing so[Read more]

What I Wore

Hello friends!  A couple dresses (one that feels like a satin slip dress!), denim shorts, and even a handmade garment–  I did a better job of taking pics of my outfits this past week! For my WIW post today, here’s what I wore this past week: If my wardrobe lacks anything, it’s business wear.  I used to have tons of suits and work dresses, but in the last 6 years of being a stay at home mom, those pieces were[Read more]

Lutons Lately + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We were both laid-back AND productive, and I call that a win.  I can’t even begin to believe that this is our last full week of summer before school starts back next Wednesday!  So we’re trying to cram a few fun things into this week, in addition to starting fall baseball and softball for the girls (!!!), and also get some school supplies and back to school clothes bought!  No rest[Read more]

What Podcasts are You Listening To?

Great part about working from home: Pretty much everything.  Flexibility, working in pjs (if so inclined), lunch with the kiddos, etc. Not so great part about working from home: It can get sooooooooo quiet sometimes that the silence itself is almost distracting!  And then PODCASTS entered into my life. Maybe I was a bit late on the podcast bandwagon, being a millennial and all (let me first just explain that I am a very old millennial, in fact almost as old as you can get[Read more]

What I Wore

From a handmade pink dress to an embroidered shift, to a jade maxi, this week’s outfits have been almost exclusively dresses! They are easy and cool for the summer, and really take the thought out of getting dressed, which is key for me in the summertime (since I’m usually throwing something on quickly to run to the store or something)!  So here’s what I wore this week: One of my favorite handmade dresses, and a new favorite pair of sandals![Read more]

End of Summer Swim Sales: Black & White Bikini Bottoms + Polka Dot Swimsuit

All I saw on my favorite blogs last week were photos of new fall clothes from the awesome Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but I just can’t even begin to think about fall yet in this sweltering heat!!  Instead, I found a few cute tankini tops with black & white bikini bottoms, and a polka dot swimsuit for great end-of-summer prices!  Makes more sense to me since it’ll be hot through October here in GA anyway.  And I just might have to grab[Read more]

What We’ve Been Eating + Weekly Meal Plan

Hi friends, and Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend– ours was spent recharging and relaxing, and snuggling with the kiddos after their week away! We’ve been on our new eating journey for a few weeks now, eating a more plant-based diet and very limited dairy, meats, and other animal products.  It is going really well, and I thought I’d share a bit about what we’ve been eating today. Like I said when we first started, we[Read more]

OMG I’m So Glad It’s Friday

Happy Friday, friends!  It has been a loooooooong week, and I am so glad that the weekend is THISCLOSE!  We have had a super quiet house this week, since the kids have been at my parents house, and we really have missed them so much!  I know they had a BIG time with Bammy and PaDaddy, but I am so anxious to see them today! Scott and I got A LOT of work done this week, we had a new team[Read more]

Brown Sugar Pound Cake with Homemade Whipped Cream

Back on Father’s Day, I wanted to make a yummy dessert to finish off our celebratory dinner.  But since we had just gotten back from out of town, and I was already making a big dinner, I needed a low-maintenance solution.  I only had to look as far as the back of my brown sugar box! This Brown Sugar Pound Cake that I made was easy, delicious, and I actually had everything on hand to make it.  You can add[Read more]
