Luton + Midkiff Beach Trip 2018: Port St. Joe

We spent last week in Port St. Joe, Florida with my side of the family for our second (and final) beach vacation of the summer.  We ate, we drank, the kids played, and we had a great time.  Here’s oh, just a few picks of our sunny week on the Gulf! On our way down, we stopped in Dothan, Alabama at Hunt’s Fish Camp for some shrimp, fish, oysters, and scallops before we ate more shrimp, fish, oysters, and scallops[Read more]

Prime Day Picks

Hello, my friends!  Happy Tuesday!  I am back after our last beach trip of the summer (post to come later this week!) and have about 9000 things on my to-do list (who’s with me??).   School starts back in TWO AND A HALF WEEKS (OMG!!!!) and I have some serious shopping that needs to be done. And there’s nothing like perfect timing- Amazon’s PRIME DAY started yesterday!  Amazon is offering awesome deals and perhaps by waiting until today, I’ve avoided site[Read more]

Happy Independence Day!

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” –Ronald Reagan Happy Independence Day, my friends!!  I hope you’re celebrating our great nation’s birthday with friends and family, and celebrating all the wonderful liberties that our country has provided us.  God bless you and God bless America!

Lutons Take Chicago!

Last weekend, Scott had a big presentation at a work conference, and I was lucky enough to tag along on the trip… to Chicago!!  I was probably Grayson’s age the last time I was in Chicago, and I was so excited to get a fun weekend away with Scott.  And man, did we have a great time!! I hadn’t flown in about 10 years (!!!), and honestly, I was VERY anxious about the flight.  We’ve left the kids plenty of[Read more]

Hello my friends!!!  I have been absent from the blog the past week because we took our first beach trip of the summer with our Luton side of the family last week, and then a quick (but awesome) working trip to Chicago this past weekend!  I am still unpacking, still getting settled back in, and still readjusting, but I wanted to share a bit about our beach trip today.  Follow along if you’d like! We left last Saturday mid-morning for[Read more]

Brantley and Grayson’s Spa Slumber Party

On Friday night, we hosted sixteen 7, 8, and 9-year-old girls for a spa slumber party to celebrate Brantley and Grayson’s birthdays.  Since their birthdays are less than a month apart, they’ve been sharing a birthday party- their choice- for years!  The girls were really excited about their spa theme, and I was just interested in keeping it as simple and low maintenance as possible, ha! I found the invitations and printables on etsy, and was able to customize them myself[Read more]

Happy Birthday, Brantley Girl!

Nine years ago today, we were blessed beyond belief as Miss Brantley Parrish entered this world and made me a mother.  She has grown and changed and challenges me daily, and I couldn’t possibly be more proud of her.  She is a natural born leader and a first-born through and through.  She is smart, loyal, helpful, creative, brave, independent, athletic, head-strong, respectful, stubborn, and challenging, and 100% just. like. me.  She makes crazy some days, but when I think about her[Read more]

#MamaSummerBucketList

As I was compiling our family summer bucket list over the weekend, I kept thinking of a few things here and there that I’d like to do or that I’d like to get done myself.  And I thought, “you know what?  We are going to have an awesome summer with all these fun things to do together as a family.  But mama has some things to do too! I think I need my own summer bucket list!”  And with that, the #MamaSummerBucketList was[Read more]
