Scenes from Thanksgiving + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving break, with lots of good food, tons of good family time, and maybe a pajama day (or two).  We were able to spend time with family- we were in Blue Ridge last weekend and in Aiken early last week- and then were able to spend the rest of the week at home, just our little family of five. When I was growing up, we spent most holidays with just our immediate[Read more]

5 Ideas for Thanksgiving Leftovers

Hello friends!  I Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday!  We spent it at home, our sweet little family, and had a wonderful day.  I prepped several dishes Wednesday night, so my cooking on Thursday wasn’t bad at all, but actually relaxing!  In fact, I think it was one of my best Thanksgiving dinners that I have prepared.  And, as expected, we have plenty of leftovers to last us at least until tomorrow, if not the rest of the weekend! And if[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday: Thanksgiving Edition

We’ve had one dinner already (as shown above- Thanksgiving at Mom & Dad’s house this past weekend), but I’m also getting ready to make Thanksgiving dinner at home for the five of us on Thursday!  I don’t want to make a huge dinner with tons of leftovers, but I also want to include all our traditional favorites!  So here’s what we’ll be eating and celebrating with on Thanksgiving Day: Turkey- Instead of roasting a full-size bird for our family of five, the past few years,[Read more]

Weekly Meal Plan

I have to admit, I’m getting really excited about Thanksgiving dinners!  We’ll get a couple family dinners, and then on actual Thanksgiving Day, my little family just stays home and has Thanksgiving just the five of us.  It’s one of my very favorite days of the year- we make our family favorites, eat, relax, and enjoy each other’s company!  We might throw in a Christmas movie too, to kick off the season. 🙂  But this week, we’re sticking to our plant-based[Read more]

Business Boutique + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and the time change hasn’t messed you (or your kids!) up too much.  Thankfully our kids sleep a little late anyway, so yesterday wasn’t so bad.  But ask me again how it’s going by the end of this week, when the madness always seems to kick in, haha! I got back into town on Saturday evening from a life-changing weekend.  My Magnolia Marketing Group colleague, Michele, and I hit the road[Read more]

Happy Halloween! Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends and Happy Halloween!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend, a good start to your week, and are excited about Trick or Treating tonight!  The kids are THRILLED, of course, and I am looking forward to walking around the neighborhood in the chilly fall air, with my drink in hand, and stealing the kids’ good candy!   The #candytax is real, y’all! I am a bit behind (what’s new) in sharing our goings-on, but wanted to share our weekend and everything[Read more]

Memes for Monday: Food + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We wrapped up our fall ball season (can I get a HALLELUJAH!) and knocked out one team party on Saturday, then I taught Sunday school at church Sunday morning, cooked, got some laundry, cleaning, and decluttering done, then had a potluck dinner at church and choir practice Sunday night.  I’ve hardly had time to sit down!  But alas, here we are on Monday, and it’s back to the grind. I see[Read more]

Date Night In Box + Weekly Meal Plan

Scott and I are homebodies.  We love a good dinner out once in a while, but most weekends (and weeknights, duh), you can find us on our sofas, half-watching tv and half-on our computers.  Romantic, right? Haha!  So when I came across Date Night In Boxes a few months ago, I thought it sounded like a fun way to shake up our typical evening routine.  And a few weeks ago, we tried one out! We got our cute little box[Read more]

Lutons Lately + Weekly Meal Plan

Hi Friends!  I hope you are safe and secure and out of the way or Hurricane Irma that is blowing through Florida and now up through Georgia today.  We’re experiencing Tropical Storm-force winds and rain here today, and since they cancelled school for today and tomorrow, with the exception of a meeting I had to run to, we’re hanging out at home, hunkered down! We have had so much going on in the past week and a fun weekend, so[Read more]

Labor Day Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful three-day Labor Day Weekend! We were able to head out of town for the weekend, and have a *few* pics to share if you’re interested in that kind of thing… Friday afternoon, we picked the kids up from school and wanted to do something a little different!  We headed straight to Michael’s and let the kids pick out some craft kits and supplies for a little Friday night crafting.  We hit up[Read more]
