Lutons Take Chicago!

Last weekend, Scott had a big presentation at a work conference, and I was lucky enough to tag along on the trip… to Chicago!!  I was probably Grayson’s age the last time I was in Chicago, and I was so excited to get a fun weekend away with Scott.  And man, did we have a great time!! I hadn’t flown in about 10 years (!!!), and honestly, I was VERY anxious about the flight.  We’ve left the kids plenty of[Read more]

Luton Beach Trip 2018- Murrell’s Inlet

Hello my friends!!!  I have been absent from the blog the past week because we took our first beach trip of the summer with our Luton side of the family last week, and then a quick (but awesome) working trip to Chicago this past weekend!  I am still unpacking, still getting settled back in, and still readjusting, but I wanted to share a bit about our beach trip today.  Follow along if you’d like! We left last Saturday mid-morning for[Read more]

Brantley and Grayson’s Spa Slumber Party

On Friday night, we hosted sixteen 7, 8, and 9-year-old girls for a spa slumber party to celebrate Brantley and Grayson’s birthdays.  Since their birthdays are less than a month apart, they’ve been sharing a birthday party- their choice- for years!  The girls were really excited about their spa theme, and I was just interested in keeping it as simple and low maintenance as possible, ha! I found the invitations and printables on etsy, and was able to customize them myself[Read more]

Happy Birthday, Brantley Girl!

Nine years ago today, we were blessed beyond belief as Miss Brantley Parrish entered this world and made me a mother.  She has grown and changed and challenges me daily, and I couldn’t possibly be more proud of her.  She is a natural born leader and a first-born through and through.  She is smart, loyal, helpful, creative, brave, independent, athletic, head-strong, respectful, stubborn, and challenging, and 100% just. like. me.  She makes crazy some days, but when I think about her[Read more]

Easy Summer Sangria

I am a red wine girl.  It’s my favorite thing to drink, but when it begins to get warmer out, I have to make the switch over to white wine, because I can’t bear to drink room temp red wine when it’s 90 degrees out. Unless it’s SANGRIA! And then you can throw in a couple ice cubes, some fruit juice, and enjoy chilled red wine with a bit of sweetness.  The perfect summer drink.  But who has the time to mix[Read more]

Friday Favorites + Reflections on the First Week of Summer

The first week of summer is always kind of an adjustment, amiright?  I feel like summertime is kind of like childbirth- you always look back on it fondly and don’t always remember how hard the bad parts were, haha!  We thrive on schedules around here and are definitely loving the lax bedtimes and laid back mornings,  but we’re still finding our groove.  But we’ll figure it out, just in time for school to start back, I’m sure, ha! So with it[Read more]

#MamaSummerBucketList

As I was compiling our family summer bucket list over the weekend, I kept thinking of a few things here and there that I’d like to do or that I’d like to get done myself.  And I thought, “you know what?  We are going to have an awesome summer with all these fun things to do together as a family.  But mama has some things to do too! I think I need my own summer bucket list!”  And with that, the #MamaSummerBucketList was[Read more]

#LutonSummerBucketList2018

Hello Friends!  IT’S SUMMMMMMMERRRRRR!!  Anyone else as excited as I am that you don’t have to struggle through morning routines for the next 2 months??!  I can drink my coffee quietly at my computer while my kiddos watch tv.  And they can even make their own breakfast now!  BEST. SUMMER. EVER!! We had a great end to the school year and a great weekend.   On Friday, the kids all had their last day parties, and I was so proud of[Read more]

Birthday Weekend Recap

Hello Friends!  I hope you are coming off a restful weekend and are ready to take on this LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL!!  I am ready to knock out these last five days, but we had a busy and fun birthday weekend and very little rest!  Last week was SO BUSY and this week will be SO BUSY, and I don’t feel like I have posted much on social media, so I thought I’d do a bit of a recap of[Read more]

10 Swimsuits + Coverups

So, swimsuit season is here.  And *confession time,* as much as I love the beach and love the pool, I am not excited about trying on swimsuits this year.  I didn’t get any new suits last year since we went to Disney World instead of the beach, so I already know I need a few new ones this year, and am really dreading it!  But at least there are FAR more one piece and tankini options than ever before, and[Read more]
