Hello Monday

Happy Monday!  After Scott being gone for 5 nights last week, we had a family-filled fun weekend, and the kids soaked up some great Daddy-time.  We’re prepping for him being gone again this week (he leaves tomorrow afternoon and comes back late Friday night), but first, saying hello to a few things on this Springtime Monday morning. Hello my little soccer player!!!  Brantley had her first official soccer game on Saturday, and it was awesome.  This is our first team sports[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday: Mama’s on her Own

Happy Monday, friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We did, and then we said goodbye to Scott for the week; he left yesterday to travel for work, and won’t be back until late Friday night!  He has been traveling pretty regularly lately, but 5 nights straight, and getting home late on the sixth is pretty unusual for us.  We get pretty spoiled with his schedule, since he owns his own business and can create a pretty flexible schedule.  So when[Read more]

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!  After a week of nap boycotts (I’m looking at you, Ben) and crazy Daylight Savings Time sleep schedules, everyone in our house is pretty tired and ready for the weekend.  And extra bonus, today is a Teacher Workday, so nobody has school today!!  Hooray!!  I’m pretty sure mama is always the most excited person in the household when there’s no school.  So we’re pumped for a three day weekend, which includes a fun playdate, soccer,  birthday parties,[Read more]

The Lutons Take Savannah

Scott and I had a long-awaited trip to Savannah BY OURSELVES this past weekend.  We don’t get date nights very often, and get away by ourselves even less often, so when we have the opportunity to get away, we take it!  Scott had a work event on Saturday, so after my mom arrived Thursday night to watch the kids, and we dropped Brantley off at school Friday morning, we hit the road! Scott took phone calls and worked the whole[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

TGIF, friends!  This week has drug by for me, mainly because, mine and Scott’s long-awaited adults only weekend away is finally here!  Scott and I have our bags packed, and we’re headed to Savannah, in the car by ourselves without We-Sing playing in the CD player or a Disney movie in the DVD player!  I have a bag of magazines to look through, and nobody to steal my candy.  We are so excited!!!  A short getaway is long overdue for[Read more]

Take a Bite Out of Lyme Disease

  There is an epidemic that is spreading across the country in record numbers, and you probably haven’t heard anything about it.  It’s not ebola, it’s not the measles, but it’s a chronic illness that affects the lives of millions of Americans annually.  It’s Lyme Disease. Lyme Disease is a tick-borne disease that if untreated, can severely affect a person’s neurological system, and just about every other aspect of their mental, physical, and psychological health and well-being.  It is one[Read more]

What I Wore Wednesday

I have two outfits to share today for WIWW!  We spent a lot of time in comfies and jammies during the bad weather we had last week, so nothing else was really share-worthy, ha!  But here are two that were somewhat presentable… I wore this out last Friday when I was running a few errands, and I felt very pulled together (something that whether or not I look it, I don’t feel very often!).  My trusty plaid flannel blanket scarf[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello Friends!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Here’s what we’ve got on the menu for our dinners this week: Chicken and Black Bean Tostadas I love Mexican food, and this weight watchers recipe sounds so good, while not being so heavy!  Plus, I think the kids will like them since they’re like little pizzas! Sloppy Joes and French Fries I need a few easy recipes this week since it’s going to be a busy one, so I’m gonna throw[Read more]

TGIF!  I really can’t complain too much about this week; it wasn’t particularly busy, but isn’t it just a relief to know the weekend is right around the corner anyway?  Today I thought I’d share some more of my favorites as of late, in keeping with my Friday Favorites theme! Favorite Frozen Yogurt and Toppings: Yoforia Pomegranate and Pineapple Yogurts with mango, kiwi, blueberries and strawberries During Bennett’s #onlychildweekend last weekend while the girls were having fun in Aiken, we[Read more]
