Quick and Easy Trader Joe’s Dinners + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello friends!  Happy Monday!  I hope y’all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for the week ahead (though I am never quite ready for Mondays, ha!). We made a fun trek to Athens after church yesterday to go to my favorite place- Trader Joe’s! We need quick and easy dinner ideas during this season that we’re in, and TJ’s has SO MANY great frozen or quick-cook options.  I had already planned my dinner menu for the week, but definitely made[Read more]

Friday Favorites

Welp, I thought I’d get more posts out this week, but hashtag life.  Anybody else feel like the weeks that we have an extra day off just make the rest of the week ten times busier?!  All week I felt like I needed to cram four days of work into five days, and kept me super busy all week long.  Throw in a doctor’s visit for me, a dental checkup for Brantley, softball, church, a leak in the shower, and,[Read more]

Lutons Lately + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello friends!  Sorry for the unexpected week off- we had a QUITE a week FULL without a minute to spare to blog.  But I’m going to try to make up for it, and am sharing what’s been going on today with another Lutons Lately post! School is going great (except the getting up early again part :))!  Brantley is loving fourth grade and joined chorus, Grayson is in second grade and has a new crush every day, and Bennett INSISTS[Read more]

Friday Favorites: Eat the Cheesecake

Hello my friends, and Happy Friday!  Honestly, I am exhausted- it has been a long week.  And after Ben’s flag football doubleheader in the morning, I might just crash.  Then Sunday we have plans to go to the lake with friends, which we’re really looking forward to!  The kids will be thrilled! I’m sharing some more favorites to round out the week- take a look if you like… Butcher Block Cafe- Monroe, GA We love to go to the Butcher Block for lunch[Read more]

Hello friends, and happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We spent our Saturday volunteering… …and then Sunday we took it easy for our 12th anniversary! Us as babies before we HAD babies, 12 years ago! But what I’m talking about today is what we had for dinner Saturday night– my new FAVORITE, easy dinner.  SHRIMP POKE BOWLS!

In My Shopping Cart: Midi Dresses + Meal Plan Monday

Happy Monday, my friends!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  We were able to get some good rest (hallelujah!!), do some long-needed things around the house, and just spend some time taking it easy as a family. As I start seeing more and more fall fashion sneak peeks, I get more and more excited for the upcoming season.  Jeans, booties, cardigans, and allllll my favorites!  But, it will be sweltering for at least another month and a half, so[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday- Back to the Routine

Hello friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  We were able to relax for a bit and recharge our batteries.  Onto another busy week!  All fall sports will be kicking into full gear this week as Ben starts flag football, Gracie resumes gymnastics, and Brantley continues her third season of softball. And I am resuming my Meal Plan Monday posts today!  During the summer all our plans and schedules are pretty lax, and so was my meal planning,[Read more]

The Secret to a Good Vegetable Plate

We have been taking full advantage of the beautiful bounty of fresh summer vegetables readily available at our local farmer’s markets lately.  Not just for a juicy tomato sandwich, or for a savory side of sauteed squash (bonus points for alliteration!), but for the real gift of the Southern summer– a vegetable plate! There is hardly a vegetable that I don’t like, so I could have a plate FULL and be happy for dinner.  BUT, there is definitely a difference between a[Read more]

Bammy’s Easy (and delicious!) Ice Cream Cake

I don’t make desserts very often at our house.  We’re just not huge sweets people, and it seems that everytime I make a cake or a pie, everyone might have a taste, but I end up polishing off the rest!  But I tried something new for Brantley’s birthday back in June, and it was a big hit with the kids, and so much so that I made it for our friend’s Fourth of July party yesterday!  And it’s perfect for[Read more]
