Solar Eclipse 2017

We had such a fun afternoon watching the eclipse as a family yesterday!  I checked the kids out of school after Brantley was so sweet and said she wanted to watch the eclipse with her brother and sister.  So we had a little eclipse party in our driveway! We headed outside at about 2:00, knowing that it was going to peak about 2:37.  We spread out a quilt, got out our eclipse-themed snacks, and alternated back and forth on the[Read more]

Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are all ready to start this new week!  Anybody have big plans for the eclipse??  I was really not all that interested in it until this morning, when Brantley expressed that she would rather watch the eclipse with her family than at school (read my Facebook post outlining the conversation here), SOOO… I ran to the Dollar General and bought up some Sun Chips, Sunny Delight, Starburst, and Cosmic Brownies,[Read more]

What I Wore

Hi Friends!  I have a few outfits here today for my WIW post- outlining what I’ve been wearing lately.  I slacked a bit since Ben and I were sick (thanks for all the sweet comments and messages, we are both feeling better today!), but I’m feeling better and ready to get out of my jammies today!  On to the outfits– I love this simple blue and white striped cold shoulder dress.  It’s cute to just throw on with flip flops,[Read more]

What Excites Your Kids?

Children can be so gloriously unpredictable.  We can spend so much time and money planning a fun surprise or outing for them, only to elicit a lukewarm reception, but they go bananas over a new bottle of bubble bath.  Sometimes the simplest things to us adults totally blow the minds of our kids!  What a lesson for us, right?  The world can seem to be full of unremarkable things to us but are actually so magical through our childrens’ eyes!  Inspired by this post[Read more]

Weekly Meal Plan

Mondays are no joke when you are recovering from a busy weekend and coming down with a cold!  Ugh.  Ben started running a fever on Saturday night, and by early Sunday evening, I knew that I was getting it too.  Luckily, no fever for me (so far, at least. Fingers crossed!), just congestion, scratchy throat, headache, and achy body.  Happy fall- the allergies have arrived!  So my diffuser is practically pumping right into my face, and I am drinking hot[Read more]

Hello Tuesday + Weekly Meal Plan

Greetings, friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We spent ours at the ballfield all day Saturday, then in church and at Trader Joe’s on Sunday!  A little bit of relaxing, and a little bit of preparing for the upcoming (busy) week, and then a doozy of a Monday.  I’m happy that this is the kids first FULL week of school (we started on Wednesday last week), and I got up early yesterday morning to get the week’s worth[Read more]

First Week of School Randoms

Whew!!  TGIF, amiright?  The first week of school is always a beast, even if it was only three days long, haha!  Sharing a few random thoughts today after a successful week back to school. The kids had an awesome first day of school.  They met their sweet teachers on Tuesday night, and any apprehension was washed away and just replaced with excitement!  Scott and I walked them into their classes on Wednesday, and each of them went in, no problem,[Read more]

What I Wore

This week has been full of color, gladiator sandals, tassels (duh), and trying to make the most of my summer wardrobe while I still can!  OH– AND going back to school, but more on that tomorrow (and the reason I’m a day late on my WIW post!).  Today, I’m sharing what I wore over the past week.  Take a look, if you’d like… I paired my new FAVE little white embroidered top with jeans the other day because we have had[Read more]
