Field Trips and Softball and Volunteering, Oh My! + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello friends!  As expected, we had a busy, busy end of last week with two field trips, a softball game, a quick family visit, and a morning of volunteering on Saturday.  I wrote up a little recap if you’d like to see… On Thursday, I chaperoned Brantley’s third-grade field trip to Callaway Gardens, the Bulloch House in Warm Springs for lunch, and then to the Pine Mountain Wild Animal Safari.  It was a long day, but we had a really,[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]

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]

Fall Family Pictures 2017

One of my favorite times of the year (and Scott’s LEAST favorite, ha) is when we get our annual family pictures taken!  Since Grayson was a baby, we’ve had our family pictures made in the fall of each year, just in time for Christmas and we had ours done this year by the lovely and talented Laura Roush of Laura Roush Photography. I was actually lucky enough to WIN a free session with her!  Earlier this year, she hosted a[Read more]

2017 Fall Must-Haves

Fall is hands-down my favorite season for lots of reasons, but it’s definitely my favorite for shopping!!  Jeans, jackets, boots– all my faves.  And speaking of faves, I have put together my must-haves for the fall 2017 season!  Instead of heading to the mall (or, let’s be honest, shopping online) without a plan for what I want and/or what I need in my closet, I make a list of the most important things I want to buy for the season[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]

Goat & Lulu Obsession: LipSense

I am a big fan of lipstick. And I have been for years– since I started wearing makeup regularly- like back in 7th grade!  Even throughout college, I worked at the Lancome counter in the Lincoln, Nebraska Von Maur because I loved makeup so much (one of my all-time favorite jobs, by the way)!  I like brights, neutrals, pinks, REDS, corals, berries, and everything in between, and it is extremely unusual to see me without lipstick on.  So naturally, when[Read more]

Hello friends!  I know I say this all the time but WHOOOAAAA, this week has been ridiculous.  But YEAH– we have three kids, three businesses we’re running, on top of friends, family, baseball/softball, OH YEAH I NEED TO CLEAN THE HOUSE AND DO SOME LAUNDRY, church, school, I NEED TO SHOWER AT SOME POINT, and oh yeah, SLEEP!  Haha, no rest for the weary, right?!  Here are five things for this Friday before the three day weekend (cheers to that, amirite??!),[Read more]
