Currently…

I haven’t done one of these posts in a loooong time, and thought I’d update you on what’s going on currently around here… Appreciating… My Bible Study girlfriends.  We all knew each other before our bible study started at the beginning of the summer, and were friends through preschool, but we have really gotten to know each other so much more, and on such a deeper level during this six week study.  We share our strengths and definitely our weaknesses, and we leave[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello friends!  I hope y’all had a great weekend!  We took it pretty easy and hung out since the five of us were all back together.  Today I’m here to share my meal plan for the week, since I am starting to get back into the more structured routine for school (which is starting back in about 2 and a half weeks, EEEEEEK!!). Mexican Chicken and Bean Tostadas with Black Bean Soup  I had to pop in the store yesterday for[Read more]

Friday Favorites

Hello and TGIF!  Four out of five posts this week isn’t too bad, and much better than in past weeks!  I thought I would go back to my old Friday theme, and list four of my favorite things on this lovely Friday.     Favorite One-Serving Dessert: Chocolate Mug Cake The mug cake trend is a powerful one round these parts.  What to do when you’re craving something sweet, and chocolaty, but it’s 11:00 and yo’re out of candy and[Read more]

What I Wore Wednesday

I got myself together this week and was able to create a new What I Wore Wednesday post!  The whole point of WIWW is to take pictures of outfits every day to encourage myself to get dressed and get going, and make the most out of the clothes in my closet.  I have definitely been slacking this summer (but it is summer…), but I made it happen this week!  So here’s what I wore… This dress was pretty much the deal[Read more]

Pinterest Recipe Reviews

If you follow along with my Meal Plan Monday posts, you’ll know that I get a lot of our weeknight dinner recipes from Pinterest.  There are soooooo many great recipe ideas, and no matter our tastes, plans, or budget for the week, I can always find plenty of options. But, just like other recipe resources, there are going to be hits, and there are going to be misses.  I wanted to share some of the recipes that I have tried lately, and[Read more]

Hello Monday

Hello Monday!  After a fun weekend of Scott’s grandmother’s 90th Birthday Party, and hauling the girls to Blue Ridge to begin their week of Princess Dance Camp, I am excited to say hello to a new week.     Hello week of just me and my boy!!  Like I mentioned, the girls are at dance camp with my mom this week, and Scott is on the west coast for work all week, and so it’s me and Ben on our own.  And[Read more]

What it Means to be a Mother

  One of my worst fears (if not the worst) is dying before my children are grown.  It’s not the fear of dying, so much as it’s imagining how hard it would be on Brantley, Grayson, and Ben to grow up without a mother.  How painful that would be to not have mom around during the most influential time in their entire life.  So when I was reading one of my very favorite blogs the other day, Cup of Jo, and her post about[Read more]

Tuesday Randoms

  Hello Again!  I know, I know, right after I said I was back, I took another big long break, so I’m sorry!  I’ve been prepping for the beach, then at the beach, and I decided to not stress about posting while I was trying to relax, ha!  So, now that I’m back from the beach, and don’t have too much going on this week (except for laundry, laundry, laundry, and getting the house back in shape!), I’m here to[Read more]

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]
