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]

Happy Mother’s Day + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!  I heard a quote over the weekend, “Mother’s Day is not about letting mom relax, but acknowledging that mom never relaxes.” How true, right, haha!  My husband and kids gave me a wonderful day to top off a fun weekend. We wrapped up Ben’s baseball season on Friday night, and got some ice cream on the way home.  He loved baseball so much that I signed him up for[Read more]

Weekend Recap: Family Visit, Braves Game, and a Big Birthday + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello, Friends!  Happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are glad to start a fresh, new week.  We had a jam-packed weekend, and I’m going to share a bit about it here today! We were so lucky to have Nana and Pop come into town on Friday afternoon to come visit and watch Ben’s baseball game Friday night, and the girls’ soccer games on Saturday morning.  A couple weeks ago, when Scott was home in Aiken for a night,[Read more]

(Short) Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello, Friends!  Last week was a killer, and this week isn’t going to be much easier.  I’m so glad that business is keeping me super busy, but on top of Easter, Teacher Appreciation Week 1 and now week 2, full weekend after full weekend, after full weekend, I am worn out!  So forgive me for short and sweet posts, but I just cannot cram everything into the 24 hours a day we are given right now! We had a fun[Read more]

Eating Our Way Through Savannah

Last Sunday, Scott and I were able to take a little trip away to Savannah, just the two of us!  Scott visits Savannah several times a year for work, and once a year or so, I get the opportunity to tag along.  Savannah is one of our very favorite cities, and we had a really wonderful trip.  AS I was looking back through my pictures, though, it seems like I tagged along just for the food, haha!  But, truth is,[Read more]

Easter Dinner Menu

We had a pretty big Easter last year, but this year we are keeping it simple just the five of us!  We have a big Easter Egg Hunt and community day of service with our church on Saturday, church on Sunday morning (after seeing what the Easter Bunny brought, of course), and our traditional Easter dinner early Sunday afternoon. Since we had a bunch of family in town last year, we had a pretty big dinner spread.  But since it’s[Read more]

The Ultimate Chopped Salad

Like I posted last Friday, as the weather gets warmer, I crave lighter, fresher dinners.  And since we spend several nights a week at the baseball field, or at church, or on the soccer field, not only do I want something light and fresh, but also quick and easy!  And it’s hard to get easier than a nice, big NO-COOK salad.  For those nights that we either have very little time between dinner time and leaving for the ball fields[Read more]

Kid-Free Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and that you were able to enjoy some beeeee-youtiful weather like we did.  The kids had a big time with their Nana and Pop, which allowed for Scott and I to have a fun weekend on our own at home!  Here’s a bit of a recap of our weekend… Ben had another baseball game Friday night, and it was a great spring evening!  He is loving baseball, and gets better every single[Read more]

Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful spring weekend.  We were so lucky to have beautiful weather and took advantage of the time outside! Ben had a baseball game Friday night, and it was precious, as always.  Those little boys, in their sweet little uniforms, are just the cutest thing ever.  I like how our league does it- they pitch once to the boys and if it doesn’t result in a hit (99% of the time it doesn’t), they[Read more]

Friday Favorites

I’m not sure I could be more excited that today is FRIDAY!  Maybe if it were next Friday (right before our Spring Break starts), but this is pretty good too.  Bennett has a baseball game tonight and we have the girls’ soccer games Saturday morning, and then it’s wide open.  Sadly the house is a wreck and I have PILES of laundry today, but still–WEEKEND! With the weather finally warming up a bit, I have been craving lighter meals for dinners.  I[Read more]
