Solar Eclipse 2017

We had such a fun afternoon watching the eclipse as a family yesterday!  I checked the kids out of school after Brantley was so sweet and said she wanted to watch the eclipse with her brother and sister.  So we had a little eclipse party in our driveway! We headed outside at about 2:00, knowing that it was going to peak about 2:37.  We spread out a quilt, got out our eclipse-themed snacks, and alternated back and forth on the[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]

What Podcasts are You Listening To?

Great part about working from home: Pretty much everything.  Flexibility, working in pjs (if so inclined), lunch with the kiddos, etc. Not so great part about working from home: It can get sooooooooo quiet sometimes that the silence itself is almost distracting!  And then PODCASTS entered into my life. Maybe I was a bit late on the podcast bandwagon, being a millennial and all (let me first just explain that I am a very old millennial, in fact almost as old as you can get[Read more]

Monday Randoms + Fitted White Dress + Monday Meal Plan

Hello Friends, and Hello Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are excited about the new week ahead of us!  I’ve had so many things running through my head lately, and so I’m sharing a bunch of randoms to start the week.

What I Wore + What Bammy Wore Too!

Since I didn’t post my WIW last Wednesday, I have a whole slew of outfits to share today!  And no doubt, the best part is that since I’m sharing some outfits from my weekend away, Bammy is going to make her What I Wore debut!!!  So scroll through last week’s outfits and get to the good stuff if you’re so inclined. 🙂  Here’s what I wore the last two weeks: I cannot resist a white cotton top or dress for[Read more]

Handmade Closet: Ayda Top & Dress and Tammy’s Tulip Shorts Pattern Testing

Earlier this spring, I was so honored (and excited!!) to be invited to do some really fun pattern testing, and I am finally able to share the results with you today!  The amazingly talented Caroline Hulse of Sew Caroline and Katie Skoog of The Simple Life Pattern Company joined forces to create the sweetest collaborative Mommy & Me 6-Pattern Collection!  I have several of both Caroline’s women’s patterns and Katie’s girl’s patterns and have tested for Caroline in the past, so testing for[Read more]

Easter 2017 + Weekly Meal Plan

What a beautiful Easter weekend we had!  Not only was it literally beautiful- sunny skies and 78 degrees, but we were able to serve the community, spend time together as a family, worship in our amazing church, witness an inspiring Easter sermon, eat a delicious Easter dinner (if I do say so myself :)), enjoy an afternoon at the park, and even ice cream sundaes (or Easter Sundaes…get it?!).  A beautiful slice of life all in one weekend. We got[Read more]

SunTrust Park + Weekly Meal Plan

Happy Monday, friends!  We had a great Spring Break, and lucky for me and Scott, it’s not quite over yet!  But more on our Savannah trip later this week.  Today I wanted to share a bit about our first trip to the NEW Braves Stadium- SunTrust Park! The Braves have kicked off their season, but haven’t actually had a home game yet.  But on Saturday, UGA played Missouri at the new stadium and since my brother is a UGA grad,[Read more]

Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful spring weekend.  We were so lucky to have beautiful weather and took advantage of the time outside! Ben had a baseball game Friday night, and it was precious, as always.  Those little boys, in their sweet little uniforms, are just the cutest thing ever.  I like how our league does it- they pitch once to the boys and if it doesn’t result in a hit (99% of the time it doesn’t), they[Read more]

Links I Love

Need some fun things to read in all your free time (LOL, right?)?  More like, need some things to occupy your time while you put off folding the laundry, or need some time wasters while you sit in the car pool line?  Here are some fun posts from around the web… Have you heard of a Bullet Journal?  Pretty sure I’m gonna have to make one. Brantley got this book set for Christmas that I remember and LOVED from my childhood.  She[Read more]
