Easter Leftovers, Repurposed

If you’re anything like me, you may or may not have about 13 various tupperware containers full of Easter leftovers in your fridge.  My mom and I made tons of food, and as usual, there was plenty leftover!  And like my dad and I were discussing, eating leftovers is a good thing when you had a really great meal that you want to partake in for a second (or third!) time.  But eating leftovers is not nearly as fun when you’re[Read more]

Valentine’s Day Outfit Ideas

So to be very honest, Scott and I don’t make Valentine’s Day a big deal.  Once upon a time, it was fun to get dressed up and go out to an overpriced and extremely crowded Valentine’s Day dinner, but now we might exchange a small gift and go out to lunch, but that’s about the extent of it.  I mean, every day is Valentine’s Day when you’re married to Scott Luton! **Insert mega eye rolls here, haha** But what I[Read more]

My Christmas Lesson

I had a horrible day on December 23rd. Our holiday season was very busy this year.  We were gone a lot, we had a lot of obligations.  We had holiday parties, LOTS of work, we bought gifts, we did this, we did that, we celebrated, we were here, there, and everywhere, and up to our elbows in Christmas cheer.  It was fun, and there were jingle bells, and Christmas cookies, and twinkly lights, but man, did I overdo it.  And it all[Read more]

I had several end-of-year blog posts planned that will just be published a bit late.  Nothing much more that you[Read more]

Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  Can you believe that Christmas is TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY??  **Cue stress and anxiety levels to skyrocket.**  This season is flying by unlike any year in the past.  I am trying my very best to savor it and slow down a bit, but it’s SO HARD.  But we did have our first family Christmas with the Luton side this past weekend, and we were able to relax and just hang out with family, and let the kids play[Read more]
