Hello Monday + Weekly Meal Plan

Happy Monday, friends!  I haven’t done a post like this in quite a while and thought I’d share the things I’m saying hello to on this overcast Monday… Hello Quiet House The kids are back in school today after a week off for mid-winter break.  As much as I loved the break and time off with the kiddos, I am so glad to get back into our routine and get their schedules back to normal.  My kids thrive on routine, and a[Read more]

Four Years of Father-Daughter Dances + Weekly Meal Plan

On Friday night, Scott went to his FOURTH Father-Daughter Dance with his little girls (WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE). It’s Brantley’s and Grayson’s favorite night of year!  Fancy dresses, (a little bit of) makeup, (just barely) high heels, and a special night out with their Daddy. As I was posting this year’s pictures, I was reminded of years past.  Anyone remember this sweet little girl? Brantley’s first Daddy-Daughter Dance was in kindergarten, and I thought she looked so, so beautiful[Read more]

Currently…

I haven’t written up a Currently post in a while (this one and this one were the last ones!)!  Here’s what’s currently on my mind and on my heart… Appreciating- The amazing Children’s Ministry staff at our church.  The kids LOVE going on Wednesdays and Sundays (and at minimum one of the three cries when we leave), and Gracie and Brantley just joined the Glee Club, which meets during our Sunday service (Ben’s not quite old enough yet).  So they are belting out their praise[Read more]

Valentine Ideas for the Kids

The kids always get super excited to pick out Valentines for their friends and classmates each year.  Of course, it stressed me out a bit, wanting to find something cute and unique, but not too expensive or labor-intensive!  So I Go straight to the source, and Pinterest never lets me down!  Here are some cute ideas that are a little bit different that we may or may not be using for our class Valentines this year: You’re a KOOL Valentine[Read more]

Scissorgate: 5 Years Later

Brantley and Grayson have been after me for a few weeks about getting their hair cut.  They both have extremely thick hair, and brushing the nests of knots out of their hair each morning is a chore that none of us enjoy.  So they have been lobbying for new short haircuts, and honestly, I was all for it.  I love getting a fresh, short cut every once in a while too (and actually, it’s been a long while, and I’m starting to get the[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]

Happy Halloween! Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends and Happy Halloween!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend, a good start to your week, and are excited about Trick or Treating tonight!  The kids are THRILLED, of course, and I am looking forward to walking around the neighborhood in the chilly fall air, with my drink in hand, and stealing the kids’ good candy!   The #candytax is real, y’all! I am a bit behind (what’s new) in sharing our goings-on, but wanted to share our weekend and everything[Read more]

Lutons do Disney 2017: What We Learned

I know y’all are probably sick of hearing about our trip, and this is the last post about it, I promise (I think :))! Now, as a preface to this post, I am no Disney expert.  This is the first trip we took to Disney World as a family, and I am certainly a novice when it comes to planning a Disney trip and all the tricks and hacks and special secrets that come with experience.  BUT, I do know that[Read more]

Lutons do Disney 2017: The Trip

We took our first family trip to Disney World last week, and y’all, it was the trip of a lifetime.   We started talking about it September 2016, and officially booked it in December 2016.  I have been reading and plotting, researching and dreaming, praying and planning ever since then, trying to design the best surprise Disney trip for the kids, Scott, and I that I possibly could.  And in one word, the trip was MAGICAL.  I’ll have a second post[Read more]

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]
