What I Wore

I have done a pretty bad job of taking photos of my outfits over the course of the last few weeks!  But I have a few for you today, and will try to do better for next week.  So here are a few things I’ve been wearing lately: Embroidery is my jam, and I can’t wait to continue the trend into fall.  Also, I wore this dress/tunic on Mother’s Day with a ruffled skirt extender, but I also love how[Read more]

Honey Vanilla Iced Coffee

It is no secret that I am a HUGE coffee drinker.  If it’s hot, there is a 99% chance it’s either black (coffee) or a latte (espresso), but if it’s iced, I like to branch out and try different flavor combinations.  So when I read about a Honey Vanilla Iced coffee the other day, I knew I had to try it out, and now it’s my favorite cold, mid-afternoon pick-me-up! I’m sharing my “recipe” with you today!  I put “recipe”[Read more]

August Favorites + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend– didn’t it just fly by??  Sadly, my Ben started running a fever again on Friday night, and then threw up early Sunday morning, and then again right before we were to head to church (the girls and I still went since we had a few obligations, but Scott stayed home to take care of Ben).  But we still made the most of it, played a little ball, relaxed, got about 237 loads of[Read more]

Friday Randoms

Hello Friends!  OMG— we have had one heck of a week.  Monday-eclipse.  Tuesday- Gracie’s first softball game.  Wednesday- all day work event, Scott’s birthday, and church.  Thursday- THREE ball games, and finally, FRIDAY.  THANKFULLY we have nothing scheduled this evening- so the only thing we’ll be doing is parking ourselves on the sofa and getting some rest before it all starts back up again tomorrow!  We have to be at the ball fields at 8 am for Ben’s team pictures,[Read more]

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]
