Our Very Fancy New Year’s Eve Party

We have a lot of wonderful holiday traditions that we keep up with each year, but one of my favorites is our “Very Fancy New Year’s Eve Party!” It’s no big secret that we’re homebodies but several years ago, Brantley and I wanted New Year’s Eve to be a bit more fun than Scott was hoping for. So we dressed up, put on makeup, and did our hair, made some simple appetizers, she made the decoration (homemade signs and streamers), and called[Read more]

Here are some of my favorite recipes from this past year. Enjoy! Black Eyed Peas (in the Instant Pot!), Collards, and Cornbread Salad Pizza[Read more]

Quick and Easy Dinners: Hashbrown Bowls

When I was in Nashville a few weeks ago, I had an awesome food truck breakfast that bears recreating and repeating!  And in fact, I don’t even want to recreate it again for breakfast, but for dinner! Everyone loves breakfast for dinner, and in my house, everyone loves taco/burrito/grain bowls.  Mainly because there’s a base (typically rice, cauliflower rice, quinoa, or couscous), and then just a bunch of toppings that everyone gets to pick for themselves to customize their bowl[Read more]

The Best Kale Salad Ever + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We took full advantage of the kids being with the in-laws, and went out for breakfast, went to the Monroe Farmer’s Market, bummed around, even took a nap, watched some football, watched hours of Netflix, went to the Dekalb Farmer’s Market (we have a thing for Farmer’s Markets, ha), I cleaned out my closet (partially), cleaned out the fridge (completely), and generally took it easy.  It was a nice rest after a busy week and[Read more]

Monday Randoms + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello friends. Happy Monday! Last week was quite a week around here, we were exhausted going into the weekend. Rest was the number one priority and we hit up the Farmer’s market, but that was about the extent of our activities other than bumming around and watching football!  We needed to relax, and thank goodness, we took full advantage of the opportunity. I thought today I’d just share some randomness from around here lately. Hope you have a wonderful start to your week! We spent[Read more]

MORE Quick Trader Joe’s Dinner Ideas + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello my friends!  Forgive me for the lack of posts lately- life has gotten BUSY the past few weeks and I need about 3 extra hours in each day (at LEAST) to get everything done.  I say it all the time, but seriously, if I could choose a super power, it would be that I would never get tired or never need to sleep.  Wouldn’t that be the best?! ANYWAY- over the last two weeks I was able to compile[Read more]
