What I Wore

I am back today with another What I Wore Wednesday!  Thanks for all the comments and love and support for my first post back in while last week…it always is a bit awkward posting a whole bunch of photos of myself, ha!  But I love the idea behind WIWW- to inspire myself and others to branch out, try some new things, and put some effort into my appearance every day.  It really makes me feel more confident and more productive.[Read more]

Links I Love

Who doesn’t love a little online quiz or an infographic here and there?  So here are some of my favorite links across the interwebs to browse if/when you have the time… I am so into smoothies (and so are the kids!), and this infographic shows the proper layering technique for a properly blended smoothie.  Excellent! Times my kids want to talk to me. Homemade Hummus Hack.  Do you ever make your own hummus?  I am for sure going to try[Read more]

Four Things We Love About Bennett

On this day, four years ago, I arrived at the hospital about 8:30 in the morning (already 6 centimeters dilated), ready to turn our family of four upside down, and become a family of five.  The little boy that was born just a few hours later (in three pushes) changed our lives infinitely for the better.  And as cliche as it sounds, I simply cannot imagine our family without his spunk, his contagious enthusiasm and energy, his sweet and caring[Read more]

10th Anniversary Weekend

Hello Friends!  I was radio-silent last week as I got a bunch of work done and prepped for a long weekend away!  Want to hear more about it?? Scott and I were able to get away for a long weekend to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversay this past weekend!  He had a work conference in Charlotte, so I was lucky enough to be able to tag along for the weekend, and we turned it into a fun weekend celebrating our[Read more]

We Need a Prayer

I don’t think I need to post about things I like today.  I think we all need a prayer.  And I am so glad that God can see directly into my heart and knows my thoughts, my worries, and my concerns, because I hardly even know what to say.  We need a prayer for our country.  A prayer for our families, for our children, for our friends, our government, our future, our communities. We don’t need another opinion piece about who is[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Happy Monday, friends!  Hope you are having a good start to your week like we are, after a beautiful day yesterday!  After church we had a little picnic lunch outside (Homemade Lemonade!  Chocolate Chip Cookies!), and were able to enjoy the sunshine and spring weather for the afternoon (hope it’s here to stay!).  Anyway, here’s what’s on the menu for our dinners this week! Hibachi Shrimp Supper with Lo Mein and Zucchini and Mushrooms I am so excited to make[Read more]

Links I Love

I haven’t done one of these posts in a while, and thought I’d share some fun links I’ve found on the internet lately! *** This article pretty much describes me to a T. I got a necklace just like this one several months ago, and have yet to take it off, I love it so much. GENIUS. Such a handy trick! I am Dolly Parton! This article almost makes me want to do something I never thought I’d say I want to do…go camping?!![Read more]


I am so very, very proud to be a stay at home mom.  It is not for every mom, and that is absolutely okay, but it has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl.  I have always wanted to stay at home and raise my children, just like my mom did.  And despite the daily struggles, the ugly moments, and the times I just want to crawl back in bed and shut the door, I honestly would not trade my[Read more]

Friday By the Numbers…

6- How old Brantley is. 16- How old Brantley thinks she is.  Serious six-year-old sass, y’all. 12- Weeks that my family and I were sick.  I hate to jinx ourselves and even think it, much less write it, but I *think* we might be through it.  Someone has been coughing through the days and nights since mid-July, and to say that we were all sick of being sick is the understatement of the year.  Hopefully our immune systems have recovered and we can be[Read more]

Five Things

Another week, another round of viruses, and at least we’re back to the weekend!  Gracie and Ben both ran fevers this week, so evidently the bugs have still not worked their way through everyone.  PRAYING that this is IT and that no one else gets sick!  For, like, the third time!!!  Here’s five things from our week… CHRISTMAS PAJAMAS ARE HERE! Goat & Lulu 2015 Christmas Pajamas are now available in my etsy shop!!  25 Fabric options, tons of shirt[Read more]
