Goat & Lulu Gift Guide: Dads/Brothers/Husbands

Hello friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  This was the only weekend before Christmas that we’ll be home, so we watched a LOT of football (Go Tigers!), went to a fun Christmas party (and saw Santa!), and then spent Sunday catching up around the house and really taking it easy.  Now for a super busy week before we hit the road for our first family Christmas this weekend! Last year I posted a last-minute holiday gift guide, and[Read more]

24 Days of Elf on the Shelf

Whether your Elf on the Shelf has been causing mischief around your house since Thanksgiving or you’re gearing up to start moving that elf around each night starting tomorrow, you need at least 24 days worth of ideas to keep those kids believin’ and keep that elf in action!  I am here, and happy to do the hard work for you! The past couple of years, I have documented the hijinks of our elves, Noodles, Sprinkles, and Sparkles, and I am[Read more]

3 Advent Calendar Ideas

Once December 1st arrives, our elves on the shelf, Noodles, Sprinkles, and Sparkles take over the house.  Bringing treats for the kids, with a dose of mischief, they really kick off the holiday festivities in our family.  But this year, in addition to the fun that the elves bring, I am trying to focus on the true meaning of the season, and share it with the kids!  So I’m incorporating an advent calendar into our Christmas celebrations.  I know, I[Read more]

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]

Halloween Through the Years

Hi Friends!  I hope you had a super fun and not-so-scary Halloween yesterday!  We had our traditional Halloween pizza dinner (I never wanted to eat dinner before going out when I was little, so I make it as easy as possible and something the kids want to eat for our kids!), then started Trick or Treating just a smidge later than years past, since the kids are a bit older (we weren’t done by sun-down like before, ha!).  We made[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]
