Meal Plan Monday

Hellllloooooo Friends!  We are back from the beach (post coming soon!), and trying to get back into the swing of things since we only have  A WEEK AND A HALF of summer left!!!  Brantley and Grayson start 2nd grade and Kindergarten (WHAAAAAAT) a week from Wednesday, so we have 9 days to cram in the last bits of summer fun and back to school prep that we can!  And also a bit of down/relaxation time, since their little worlds are[Read more]

Tropical Fruit Smoothie

Soooo… I’ll let you in on a secret.  Well, not a secret, but something I haven’t “announced” or posted about yet, or shared all over, but I have joined Weight Watchers (AGAIN) to shed this extra weight I have been holding onto (unwillingly, hahaha!).  We all know that I love food, I do not love to exercise, but daggumit, I have to find a happy medium if I am going to love the way I look (#thirtiesareFORREAL #amiright??).  SOOO… I[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello Friends!  We are back from the beach!  We left super early Saturday morning (we had to pick up our dogs by 12:30), so we got home by lunchtime on Saturday which was nice, and has given us a little bit of time to rest and prep for our super busy week ahead!  Isn’t it funny that you seem to need a vacation once you get home from vacation?! So, today I’m back to Meal Plan Monday!  Since the summer[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello Friends!  ONLY FIVE MORE DAYS TIL SUMMERRRRRRRRRR!!  We are seriously in the homestretch now, and even though I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, we have a BIG week.  Two birthdays, a field trip, gifts to make, water days to attend, good gracious…I get the itching to start making a to-do list as I write this.  BUT, if I can just make it through this week…SUMMER!!!!!  And with that, here’s our meal plan for the[Read more]

Homemade Lemonade

Put the Countrytime back on the shelf.  Don’t even look at the jug on the juice aisle.  Lemonade is one of the best parts of the summertime, in my opinion, and NOTHING beats homemade!  And I promise, as is most of the recipes for everything I make, it’s SOOO easy!  And might take 5 minutes longer than scooping out that powdery mix, but again, I promise, it is 100 times better. Homemade Lemonade One bag of lemons (8-9 average-sized lemons), plus one more[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday: Pinterest Recipe Reviews

Happy Monday friends!  First of all, I apologize for my unintentional absence last week!  We are in the end-of-the-school-year homestretch, and I am OVERWHELMED with end of year celebrations, teacher appreciation, etc., etc., etc…times three!!  SO, I was bogged down with about three thousand things, but everytime I sat down to write for the blog…NOTHING.  But, I am BACK! Secondly, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday!  We had a lovely day (the weather was GORGEOUS), and I had[Read more]

Key Lime Pie Pops

Once the weather starts to get warmer, one of our favorite things to do is eat popsicles out on the front porch after dinner.  Now, don’t get me wrong, a good ole Bomb Pop or classic cherry-grape-orange twin pops definitely do the trick, and we get those at the store sometimes too, but why even pay the $3 when you can so easily make your own popsicles with stuff you already have in your fridge and pantry?! When I saw this recipe[Read more]

If this is your first time here or you don’t follow along regularly, today is Meal Plan Monday!  We are a busy family, and if there is any chance of getting a decent dinner on the table every night, it means I have to have a plan!  So every Sunday, I have a meal plan and grocery list ready,[Read more]

Fruity Wine Slush

  During the winter, I pretty much stick to red wine.  But when it starts getting warm, my alcohol preferences broaden substantially!  I like white wines, cold beers, and the occasional cocktail.  And over the weekend, I whipped up a super easy drink that was refreshing and fun, and perfect for sipping on while watching the kids play in the yard! My Fruity Wine Slush couldn’t be easier to make, and it only takes TWO ingredients!  And no liquor store[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Happy Monday, friends!  Hope you had a nice weekend!  We were outside in the glorious spring sunshine for a lot of it, and it made for a lovely time.  But now we’re back to the grind, but one week closer to the summertime! Here’s what we’re having for dinner this week! Boursin Pasta with Asparagus, Caesar Salad, and Ciabatta Bread The picture is actually Boursin Pasta with Peas, but to be honest?  Peas are one of maybe three foods that[Read more]
