Independence Day Recap

Like most Americans, we are very proud of our country, and love the Fourth of July! We had a pretty big Fourth this year– we packed about all we possibly could into the day with the kiddos.  Here’s a little recap of our day if you’d like to see… Our big plans for the day were to go to the Minor League Gwinnett Braves game, since Ben’s favorite player, Freddie Freeman, was at Gwinnett rehabbing his hurt hand.  We thought[Read more]

Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day, friends!  I hope you’re having a wonderful day, spending time with your friends and family, and celebrating our incredible country and all the liberties it provides.  May we always be grateful for those who have fought for our freedoms and given their lives so that we may live in the greatest country in the world.  God Bless America, and Happy 4th! “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our[Read more]

Memorial Day Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Happy Tuesday to you!  I hope you have had a wonderful holiday  weekend.  We had some crazy thunder Sunday morning (I even asked Scott if he thought one strike might have been a bomb!), and a great afternoon shower yesterday, but otherwise it’s been mild and warm and wonderful.  We had a wonderful start to our summer if you’d like to know the details! We started out the weekend right with school getting out, and then having our third annual[Read more]

Father’s Day Dresses

If your husband is anything like mine, he has a closet full of dress shirts for work, and he only wears a handful.  He’s got some from college that he just can’t let go of, some that don’t fit, and some that just aren’t his style anymore (or never were!).  Instead of throwing them in a garbage bag and hauling them off to goodwill, I decided to make a few special dresses for my girls out of Scott’s old dress[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]

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Guide

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]

Happy Valentine’s Day + Goings On + Weekly Meal Plan

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!  I hope your day is full of love in one way, shape, or form, and that you are able to give a little bit away too.  We had a fun morning with the kids- heart shaped pancakes and some candy and fun goodies.  They were all SO excited about their valentines for their friends at school- Fun Dip for Brantley’s class, Kool Aid for Grayson’s class, and Star Wars Glow Sticks for Ben’s class.  No doubt[Read more]

Thanks for the Memories, 2016, Hello 2017–Happy New Year!

Everyone keeps talking about how 2016 was such a horrible year, and everyone is so ready for 2016 to be over, but 2016 was a great year for our family!  Did it have it’s challenges?  Absolutely (what year doesn’t?).  But, 2015 was a HARD year for us, and we worked really hard through 2016 and made it work, and are now that much more excited for the year to come!  Not because 2016 was bad, but because it was GOOD,[Read more]
