Hello Monday

Hi Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Here are a few things that I am saying hello to on this lovely Monday morning… Hello (and goodbye again) Scott! Scott was out of town for work most of last week, and we were all so excited for him to get home on Saturday night!  Just to have him have to leave again on Sunday, though, for another trip through Wednesday. 🙁  At least when we pick him up from[Read more]

Weight Watchers Chocolate and Peanut Butter Treats

Whether you are on Weight Watchers or not, I made a tasty sweet treat last night that was too good not to share!  It only uses three ingredients, takes no time to make, and they certainly satisfy a sweet tooth for very few calories! Here’s all you need: 1 Tub of fat free cool whip, thawed 3 Tablespoons of peanut butter 1 Tablespoon of sugar free fudge sauce, melted. Empty the tub of cool whip into a medium bowl.  Add[Read more]

Brantley and Grayson’s Birthday Fiesta

Finally getting around to posting about Brantley and Grayson’s dual birthday party, almost a month ago!  Since my girls’ birthdays are less than a month apart (Grayson- May 17, Brantley- June 11), for the past three years we have done a joint birthday party for the both of them, to knock out the celebrations in one big bash.  This year was no different, as we celebrated with a fun Mexican-themed fiesta in the backyard!  I wanted bright and floral and[Read more]

Hello and Meal Plan Monday

Whew!  Hi there!  I could say that I have been busy (and I have), or that I wanted to take a break since I was on vacation (I was, and I did), but really, I haven’t been blogging much in the past three weeks because I think I just needed to take a break in general.  We have been go-go-going, and I just needed to take one of those balls that I constantly have up in the air, and set[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

I just have not been able to get it together to post more than twice in the past two weeks!  But, I’m trying to get back in the swing of things, and am back for Meal Plan Monday for the first time in quite a while! So, for the past two weeks, I have been doing Weight Watchers to try to (FINALLY) get back to my pre-pregnancy weight (did I mention Ben will be THREE in September?) and stay there[Read more]

Happy Memorial Day!

  Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We did not pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. -Ronald Reagan, March 30, 1961 On this Memorial Day, I will be spending my[Read more]

Happy Birthday, Gracie!

    My sweet Gracie girl turned four years old yesterday, and I can hardly believe it.  Cliche, I know, but it seems like just yesterday that we were bringing our teeny little sweet Birdie home, and changing our family for the better. I had big plans for the day, but unfortunately Gracie started running a fever late Friday night (most likely from the virus Bennett had last week), and had a febrile seizure early Sunday morning (her first one).[Read more]

Things to Tell Brantley

  Today is Brantley’s last day of Kindergarten, and it is a bittersweet day.  I am SO, SO, SOOO glad for the summer to be here, since it brings along with it lazy mornings, beach vacations, and lots of fun adventures among other things, but Kindergarten is a is a big milestone, and she burst right through it and has come out the other side.  It makes me sad to think how fast time is passing, and the kids are[Read more]

Thank You, Mom

When it comes down to it, it’s not the gifts that moms want on Mother’s Day.  It’s not the brunch, the birthstone jewelry, or the mani/pedis after church.  It’s not even the sweet fingerpainted handprint flower bouquets and homemade cards.  Though all these things are wonderful and are absolute treasures, it’s about a little bit more. I truly think that moms just want to know that they are appreciated. We just want to know that the little things, the day[Read more]

Happy Birthday, Dad!

Happy Birthday to my first love, my first hero, my first protector and provider.  It really is hard for me to put into words the impact that my dad has had in my life, as I write and delete sentences over and over, trying, and failing, to give credit where credit is due (see also: Mother’s Day post tomorrow :)). When I was in third grade, I wanted to play baseball.  We were (are) and Atlanta Braves family (my mom[Read more]
