November Favorites

CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE THAT IT IS DECEMBER 1ST???!!!  Christmas is practically tomorrow, and November is gone!  We had a fun and busy month, and it just flew by.  Here are a few of my favorites from November… Volunteering for Veterans- We spent two wonderful days this month serving veterans and their families.  Scott and I were both so proud of the kids and their enthusiasm and hard work that they put into volunteering.  It was wonderful time spent as[Read more]

24 Days of Elf on the Shelf

Whether your Elf on the Shelf has been causing mischief around your house since Thanksgiving or you’re gearing up to start moving that elf around each night starting tomorrow, you need at least 24 days worth of ideas to keep those kids believin’ and keep that elf in action!  I am here, and happy to do the hard work for you! The past couple of years, I have documented the hijinks of our elves, Noodles, Sprinkles, and Sparkles, and I am[Read more]

What I Wore

Hello friends!  I hope you’re adjusting well after the holiday (it has been a struggle for us) and are having a great week. Today I’m sharing what I wore over the last few weeks.  It’s been a while! I’m embarrassed to admit how many blue striped embroidered tops I have in my closet, but I just can’t get enough.  I love the navy detail on this one from Rosegal, and the fact that I can pretty much wear it year-round! Striped and Embroidered[Read more]

3 Advent Calendar Ideas

Once December 1st arrives, our elves on the shelf, Noodles, Sprinkles, and Sparkles take over the house.  Bringing treats for the kids, with a dose of mischief, they really kick off the holiday festivities in our family.  But this year, in addition to the fun that the elves bring, I am trying to focus on the true meaning of the season, and share it with the kids!  So I’m incorporating an advent calendar into our Christmas celebrations.  I know, I[Read more]

Scenes from Thanksgiving + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving break, with lots of good food, tons of good family time, and maybe a pajama day (or two).  We were able to spend time with family- we were in Blue Ridge last weekend and in Aiken early last week- and then were able to spend the rest of the week at home, just our little family of five. When I was growing up, we spent most holidays with just our immediate[Read more]

5 Ideas for Thanksgiving Leftovers

Hello friends!  I Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday!  We spent it at home, our sweet little family, and had a wonderful day.  I prepped several dishes Wednesday night, so my cooking on Thursday wasn’t bad at all, but actually relaxing!  In fact, I think it was one of my best Thanksgiving dinners that I have prepared.  And, as expected, we have plenty of leftovers to last us at least until tomorrow, if not the rest of the weekend! And if[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday: Thanksgiving Edition

We’ve had one dinner already (as shown above- Thanksgiving at Mom & Dad’s house this past weekend), but I’m also getting ready to make Thanksgiving dinner at home for the five of us on Thursday!  I don’t want to make a huge dinner with tons of leftovers, but I also want to include all our traditional favorites!  So here’s what we’ll be eating and celebrating with on Thanksgiving Day: Turkey- Instead of roasting a full-size bird for our family of five, the past few years,[Read more]

Week in Review: Thankful

I’m pretty sure that when I post on Fridays, the first line literally every time is, “whew, what a week.” But, we just do not slow down around here, and here again, WHEW, it has been a busy week!!!  And we are so thankful for it.   So before we get our Thanksgiving Break started (no school ALL next week!!!), I wanted to share some of the highlights from this past week and what we’ve been up to. Last weekend, we celebrated Veteran’s[Read more]

Weekly Meal Plan

I have to admit, I’m getting really excited about Thanksgiving dinners!  We’ll get a couple family dinners, and then on actual Thanksgiving Day, my little family just stays home and has Thanksgiving just the five of us.  It’s one of my very favorite days of the year- we make our family favorites, eat, relax, and enjoy each other’s company!  We might throw in a Christmas movie too, to kick off the season. 🙂  But this week, we’re sticking to our plant-based[Read more]
