Headed to Disney + Dining Reservations

Hi Friends!!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  We made our drive down to Orlando yesterday, and are heading to the Magic Kingdom today!!  I will share ALLLLLLLLL the details (probably far more than you are interested in, haha!) once we get back, especially how we SURPRISED the kids with the entire Disney trip, but I’m keeping it short and sweet today! Since I typically share my meal plan for the week on Mondays, I thought I’d share our[Read more]

TGIF…and Headed to Disney!!!

What. a. week.  I know I say that just about every Friday, but WHEW!!!  I mean, let’s have a busy week, plan and pack for our biggest (and only!) vacation of the year, and OH YEAH, let’s throw in a hurricane.  WHAT?!

And[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]

August Favorites + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend– didn’t it just fly by??  Sadly, my Ben started running a fever again on Friday night, and then threw up early Sunday morning, and then again right before we were to head to church (the girls and I still went since we had a few obligations, but Scott stayed home to take care of Ben).  But we still made the most of it, played a little ball, relaxed, got about 237 loads of[Read more]

Friday Randoms

Hello Friends!  OMG— we have had one heck of a week.  Monday-eclipse.  Tuesday- Gracie’s first softball game.  Wednesday- all day work event, Scott’s birthday, and church.  Thursday- THREE ball games, and finally, FRIDAY.  THANKFULLY we have nothing scheduled this evening- so the only thing we’ll be doing is parking ourselves on the sofa and getting some rest before it all starts back up again tomorrow!  We have to be at the ball fields at 8 am for Ben’s team pictures,[Read more]

What Excites Your Kids?

Children can be so gloriously unpredictable.  We can spend so much time and money planning a fun surprise or outing for them, only to elicit a lukewarm reception, but they go bananas over a new bottle of bubble bath.  Sometimes the simplest things to us adults totally blow the minds of our kids!  What a lesson for us, right?  The world can seem to be full of unremarkable things to us but are actually so magical through our childrens’ eyes!  Inspired by this post[Read more]

Hello Tuesday + Weekly Meal Plan

Greetings, friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We spent ours at the ballfield all day Saturday, then in church and at Trader Joe’s on Sunday!  A little bit of relaxing, and a little bit of preparing for the upcoming (busy) week, and then a doozy of a Monday.  I’m happy that this is the kids first FULL week of school (we started on Wednesday last week), and I got up early yesterday morning to get the week’s worth[Read more]

First Week of School Randoms

Whew!!  TGIF, amiright?  The first week of school is always a beast, even if it was only three days long, haha!  Sharing a few random thoughts today after a successful week back to school. The kids had an awesome first day of school.  They met their sweet teachers on Tuesday night, and any apprehension was washed away and just replaced with excitement!  Scott and I walked them into their classes on Wednesday, and each of them went in, no problem,[Read more]

The Best Things About Summer 2017

Today is the last day of summer, and I’m taking it harder than I had expected.  In years past, I have been a little sad, but ready for the kids to go back to school.  This year, I’m just sad!  I think it’s partially the fact that this summer really was so short, also that Ben will be going to Pre-K at the elementary school with the girls, and partially the fact that I feel like the kids have really grown[Read more]
