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]

Lutons Lately + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We were both laid-back AND productive, and I call that a win.  I can’t even begin to believe that this is our last full week of summer before school starts back next Wednesday!  So we’re trying to cram a few fun things into this week, in addition to starting fall baseball and softball for the girls (!!!), and also get some school supplies and back to school clothes bought!  No rest[Read more]

OMG I’m So Glad It’s Friday

Happy Friday, friends!  It has been a loooooooong week, and I am so glad that the weekend is THISCLOSE!  We have had a super quiet house this week, since the kids have been at my parents house, and we really have missed them so much!  I know they had a BIG time with Bammy and PaDaddy, but I am so anxious to see them today! Scott and I got A LOT of work done this week, we had a new team[Read more]

Independence Day Recap

Like most Americans, we are very proud of our country, and love the Fourth of July! We had a pretty big Fourth this year– we packed about all we possibly could into the day with the kiddos.  Here’s a little recap of our day if you’d like to see… Our big plans for the day were to go to the Minor League Gwinnett Braves game, since Ben’s favorite player, Freddie Freeman, was at Gwinnett rehabbing his hurt hand.  We thought[Read more]

Weekend in Nashville

Hello, friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and a great Father’s Day yesterday!  We got back from an awesome trip to Nashville yesterday, and I thought I’d share the details!  As I mentioned on Friday, Scott had a work conference, and the kids and I were so lucky to be able to tag along.  This was actually the first trip we’ve taken just the five of us, and it was quite the adventure!  And good preparation for a[Read more]
