Favorite Recipes of 2018

As per the norm around here, I did a lot of cooking this past year! I logged a good many of my dinner menus here on the blog and on Instagram, and I love looking back and seeing what we repeated, what worked and what didn’t, and what we want to eat more of this year! Here are some of my favorite recipes from this past year. Enjoy! Black Eyed Peas (in the Instant Pot!), Collards, and Cornbread Salad Pizza[Read more]

Highlights of 2018

I am so glad that I am able to look back on 2018 with fondness- our family had a really wonderful year! It was not without its challenges, struggles, and stresses FOR SURE, but it was also full of laughter, togetherness, learning, growing, adjusting, readjusting, and so much love. I have compiled some of our highlights of year, and most of them are pretty ordinary family events! But in this family, it’s the wonderful ordinary mundane moments that make a[Read more]

Luton Family Christmas 2018

Hello my friends! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas over the past few days! We have prasied, taken it easy, stayed in jammies, eaten well, played games, rested, and generally had a wonderful few days of Christmas celebration. We are right in the middle of my favorite week of the year, when you just take it easy, clean up bit by bit, eat whatever, take naps, play games, declutter a bit, and just rest after the chaos[Read more]

Merry Christmas!

Hello my friends! And Merry Christmas Eve! After a relaxing weekend, a marathon gift-wrapping session, a few last-minute orders finally coming in, and some stocking-stuffer shopping, I think we are finally ready for Christmas! What about you? The kids and I spent Friday morning trying to clean up a bit before my in-laws came to visit. Did you know that Santa Claus doesn’t come to dirty houses? He also won’t leave toys for children whose rooms aren’t clean? That’s what I’ve[Read more]

TGIF: WTFlu

Well, hello, my friends! I am out from under the blankets of my sofa, finally, after laboring through the misery of the flu this week. I haven’t been really sick in several years now, and let me just say, GET YOUR FLU SHOT if you haven’t already. I started getting a scratchy throat and a mild cough on Sunday, and I went to the doctor on Monday for an unrelated appointment. I was starting to feel worse and described my[Read more]

Email Marketing Tips

So who here owns their own business or has a successful side hustle??  From an etsy shop to a full-fledged brick and mortar, a part-time gig to a real full time job, women are starting businesses on their own more and more.  Social media marketing is on the rise, but email marketing is treated like it’s going out of style. Do you collect your customers email addresses for a weekly email or a monthly newsletter? If y’all didn’t know, I am the[Read more]

Friday Favorites

Hello my friends!  We have made it through another December week and are ONE STEP CLOSER to Christmas!!  Are you done with your shopping?  I HAVE SO MUCH LEFT TO DO.  Amazon Prime and UPS are gonna be wearing out the cement in my driveway, I’m afraid, over the next week, haha!  I have a special evening planned tonight for me and Brantley, and then a marathon Christmas baking session for the whole fam planned for Saturday.  Are you doing[Read more]

What I Wore

I started doing these posts years ago to motivate myself to get out of yoga pants and get dressed to be more productive and feel a bit more confident with three very small kiddos at home.  Sometimes I feel good about the posts, and sometimes I feel silly, but it always blows me away when I hear from people or read comments that they love my outfit posts because it gives them ideas or inspires them, or makes them feel like[Read more]

Things I Love: Holiday Dresses

We are lucky to have several fun holiday parties and events to attend this month (Scott might not consider us quite as lucky, ha! #homebody)!  Which also means that I’ve needed some cute, festive holiday outfits!  If you’ve followed me for long or read any of my outfit posts in the past, you know that I don’t love buying single-occasion outfits, and like for the pieces I buy to be very versatile.  Buttttttttt… sometimes you just have to break your[Read more]

Bammy’s Disney Birthday

For my mom’s 60th birthday, my parents took my whole family to Disney World over the week of Thanksgiving.  After we had the most magical time last year, we were so excited to have the opportunity to go back so soon!  And this time, with Bammy, PaDaddy, Uncle Ramsey, Aunt Beth, and cousins Sally Kate and William!  And we knew that just like last year, we wanted to SURPRISE the kids! *Yes, we wanted to surprise them to see the excitement in[Read more]
