Friday Favorites: Local Gems

TGIF, friends!  Is anyone else really feeling this Friday today??  I feel like I’m crawling toward the finish line after a busy week. Today for my Friday Favorites, I’m spotlighting a few of my favorite local small business establishments!  Being a small business owner myself, I know the importance of shopping small and supporting our local establishments and in turn, our local economy.  So whenever we can, we visit these favorites that I know you’ll just love!

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]

Luton Beach Trip 2018- Murrell’s Inlet

Hello my friends!!!  I have been absent from the blog the past week because we took our first beach trip of the summer with our Luton side of the family last week, and then a quick (but awesome) working trip to Chicago this past weekend!  I am still unpacking, still getting settled back in, and still readjusting, but I wanted to share a bit about our beach trip today.  Follow along if you’d like! We left last Saturday mid-morning for[Read more]

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]

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Guide + Weekly Meal Plan

Has Mother’s Day snuck up on you too?  Can you believe it’s less than a week away?!  Well, never fear, I am the queen of the last minute gift!  I am the worst at having the greatest gift-giving intentions, and then, uh-oh, it’s three days before the big day and I haven’t bought a thing.  So if you’ve procrastinated too, I have some great gift ideas that you can order this week and have in time for Mother’s Day on Sunday.[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]
