Summertime Peach and Tomato Salad + Weekly Meal Plan

tomato and peach salad

I love finding simple recipes for all our fabulous summer Farmer’s Market finds. We love to scour our local market for squash, zucchini, cucumbers, greens, okra, tomatoes (of course), and Georgia favorites, peaches! The kids will just eat them like apples, but I like to find more creative ways to use them. So imagine my delight when I came across this recipe from Mark Bittman of the New York Times that I had saved (and printed out!) ages ago. So[Read more]

This is 37: Trader Joe’s Favorites

Hello again my friends! I got to stretch my birthday out a bit longer with an awesome day out shopping with my mom on Monday. We don’t get to do that nearly as often as we’d like (or used to back before kids), so it was a real treat! And then life got SO BUSY again, and here I am and it’s Thursday (but only two days of school left)!! And I’m continuing to stretch out my birthday this week,[Read more]

Easter 2019 Recap

Hello Friends and Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and a wonderful Easter yesterday! We had a very low-key and beautiful Easter, and I even snuck in a pretty lengthy nap! Here’s a bit about our day, if you’re interested… The Easter Bunny came! And the kids were up at 6:45 to let me know! With ALL THE EASTER CANDY the kids have been collecting over the last week, we took it easy on the candy and[Read more]

Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? Anything fun? We had a pretty regular weekend, but it was great. I don’t know what it was- if the stars were aligned, or I just wasn’t super stressed , or everyone was just in a great mood, but we just had a great weekend! Saturday we all took our time getting up, which is always so nice. Scott and I have a kind-of unwritten weekend routine- since I get up and get[Read more]

TGIF, Friends! We made it through our first week back to school, and as usual, I am tired and ready for the weekend! But no rest for the weary- our downstairs has been in desperate need of a fresh coat of paint for a looooong time, and I’m going to start to tackle it myself this weekend! It’s quite an undertaking though, and the main reason it’s taken so long to get it done- our first floor has a very[Read more]

What’s in My Cart + Weekly Meal Plan

Am I the only one or does anyone else have a million things sitting in their Amazon shopping cart pretty much at all times?? Anytime I’m browsing and I find something I like, I just add it to my cart and when it’s time to actually order the things I need, I “save for later” all the frivolous items until next time. Today I’m sharing just a couple of the things I have in my Amazon cart that I’m waiting[Read more]

Our Very Fancy New Year’s Eve Party

We have a lot of wonderful holiday traditions that we keep up with each year, but one of my favorites is our “Very Fancy New Year’s Eve Party!” It’s no big secret that we’re homebodies but several years ago, Brantley and I wanted New Year’s Eve to be a bit more fun than Scott was hoping for. So we dressed up, put on makeup, and did our hair, made some simple appetizers, she made the decoration (homemade signs and streamers), and called[Read more]

As per the norm around here, I did a lot of cooking this past year!
