What We’ve Been Eating + Weekly Meal Plan

Hi friends, and Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend– ours was spent recharging and relaxing, and snuggling with the kiddos after their week away! We’ve been on our new eating journey for a few weeks now, eating a more plant-based diet and very limited dairy, meats, and other animal products.  It is going really well, and I thought I’d share a bit about what we’ve been eating today. Like I said when we first started, we[Read more]

Brown Sugar Pound Cake with Homemade Whipped Cream

Back on Father’s Day, I wanted to make a yummy dessert to finish off our celebratory dinner.  But since we had just gotten back from out of town, and I was already making a big dinner, I needed a low-maintenance solution.  I only had to look as far as the back of my brown sugar box! This Brown Sugar Pound Cake that I made was easy, delicious, and I actually had everything on hand to make it.  You can add[Read more]

A Change in Our Diet + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello, my friends!  And Happy Independence Day weekend!  We had a jam-packed weekend, are doing a bit of work today (SO MANY fun, new things going on with Magnolia Marketing Group!), and then we’re doing some more celebrating tomorrow! Over the weekend, we watched a few documentaries that made a pretty major impact on us and how we eat.  What the Health and Forks Over Knives (both on Netflix) both examine how a whole food, plant-based diet is much better[Read more]

June Favorites

{Collage created on Canva} Since today is the last day of the month, I thought I’d start a new series and share a few of my favorite products, movies, shows, recipes, outfits, etc. on the last day of each month.  So, without further ado, here are my June favorites! Hattie B’s Hot Chicken- Our trip to Nashville was memorable in so many ways, but we STILL can’t stop talking (and thinking!) about the hot chicken we got from Hattie B’s.  So[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello, Friends!  I hope you had a nice weekend.  I had a SUPER busy end to last week but had a lovely, laid-back weekend.  We headed out to our local farmer’s market on Saturday, just to be rained out (boo), we ate a mediocre lunch at one of our previously favorite places (we’ll try again!), and then we went to a new little farm stand near our house and got bad corn.  BAD CORN!  Who even knew there was such[Read more]

Weekend in Nashville

Hello, friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and a great Father’s Day yesterday!  We got back from an awesome trip to Nashville yesterday, and I thought I’d share the details!  As I mentioned on Friday, Scott had a work conference, and the kids and I were so lucky to be able to tag along.  This was actually the first trip we’ve taken just the five of us, and it was quite the adventure!  And good preparation for a[Read more]

Five-Layer Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

One of my favorite birthday traditions that we have in our family is that I always make the birthday kid (or adult :)) a homemade birthday cake on their big day.  While I have no problem outsourcing a cake or cupcakes for school or their birthday party, I like to keep their actual cake on their actual birthday an in-house creation.  And the kids love it.  I’ve made several strawberry cakes with strawberry frosting (for the girls, and PS- Paula Deen’s recipe is REALLY good),[Read more]

Memorial Day Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Happy Tuesday to you!  I hope you have had a wonderful holiday  weekend.  We had some crazy thunder Sunday morning (I even asked Scott if he thought one strike might have been a bomb!), and a great afternoon shower yesterday, but otherwise it’s been mild and warm and wonderful.  We had a wonderful start to our summer if you’d like to know the details! We started out the weekend right with school getting out, and then having our third annual[Read more]

Hilton Head Birthday Weekend Recap

What a weekend!!  If you read my last post, you might know that I celebrated my 35th birthday on Friday.  And not just all Friday, but all weekend long!  My awesome mom and I scooted off to Hilton Head, South Carolina for a girls beach weekend, just she and I!  It wouldn’t have been possible without Scott being such a trooper and managing the kids and taking them to Aiken for a fun weekend with Nana and Pop.  Cliche as[Read more]
