Easy Summer Sangria

I am a red wine girl.  It’s my favorite thing to drink, but when it begins to get warmer out, I have to make the switch over to white wine, because I can’t bear to drink room temp red wine when it’s 90 degrees out. Unless it’s SANGRIA! And then you can throw in a couple ice cubes, some fruit juice, and enjoy chilled red wine with a bit of sweetness.  The perfect summer drink.  But who has the time to mix[Read more]

What I Wore + Weekly Meal Plan

What a week, yall!  Spring break ended calmly with plenty of relaxation and about 217 loads of laundry completed, just in time to kick off a beast of a week with tons to do, and oh yeah, Scott out of town for five-sevenths of it.  Well, he’s just in Atlanta, but he’s holed up in a downtown hotel all week for a conference and might as well be across the country!  But we are holding it down, rocking and rolling,[Read more]

Easter Leftovers, Repurposed

If you’re anything like me, you may or may not have about 13 various tupperware containers full of Easter leftovers in your fridge.  My mom and I made tons of food, and as usual, there was plenty leftover!  And like my dad and I were discussing, eating leftovers is a good thing when you had a really great meal that you want to partake in for a second (or third!) time.  But eating leftovers is not nearly as fun when you’re[Read more]

What I’ve Been Listening To + Weekly Meal Plan

podcast

Was yesterday the most Monday of all Mondays or what?  Losing an hour and springing forward has our whole family out of sorts.  Not to mention that it was a rainy and cold morning, and throw in a case of strep throat for Miss Brantley, and we had a rough start to the week.  But it’s supposed to be sunny and a bit warmer today, so here’s hoping for the best! Now y’all know what a huge fan of TV and[Read more]

Marinated Olives

marinated olives

We love snack trays in our house.  Cut up veggies, some crackers, cut up apples and grapes, nuts, hummus, cheese or other spreads, and pickles make for a perfect snack for the kids after school or for a happy hour tray for the adults!  We’ve even put them together for super easy “serve yourself” kind of lunches or dinners on the weekends.  And I have one new addition to the trays- Homemade Marinated Olives! Now, you’ve all seen the amazing[Read more]
