Friday Favorites

TGIF, Friends! We made it through our first week back to school, and as usual, I am tired and ready for the weekend! But no rest for the weary- our downstairs has been in desperate need of a fresh coat of paint for a looooong time, and I’m going to start to tackle it myself this weekend! It’s quite an undertaking though, and the main reason it’s taken so long to get it done- our first floor has a very[Read more]

And after spending allllll of Christmas break in either pajamas or leggings, I have been ready to get dressed! I have a few outfits to share on the blog today! I wore this winter white swing dress to a Christmas party Scott and I attended several weeks ago, and I snapped a pic before we left. It’s[Read more]

What’s in My Cart + Weekly Meal Plan

Am I the only one or does anyone else have a million things sitting in their Amazon shopping cart pretty much at all times?? Anytime I’m browsing and I find something I like, I just add it to my cart and when it’s time to actually order the things I need, I “save for later” all the frivolous items until next time. Today I’m sharing just a couple of the things I have in my Amazon cart that I’m waiting[Read more]

Our Very Fancy New Year’s Eve Party

We have a lot of wonderful holiday traditions that we keep up with each year, but one of my favorites is our “Very Fancy New Year’s Eve Party!” It’s no big secret that we’re homebodies but several years ago, Brantley and I wanted New Year’s Eve to be a bit more fun than Scott was hoping for. So we dressed up, put on makeup, and did our hair, made some simple appetizers, she made the decoration (homemade signs and streamers), and called[Read more]

Happy New Year! + My Word of the Year

Happy New Year! Welcome 2019!! I hope you had a wonderful evening bringing in the New Year like we did (on the couch, in our jammies, with some champagne :)). I love New Years! A fresh start, new goals and plans, new intentions. A clean slate. I don’t see it as being a lot of pressure, I see it more as being a starting place for big changes. And I like change. The past few years, I’ve picked a word[Read more]

Highlights of 2018

I am so glad that I am able to look back on 2018 with fondness- our family had a really wonderful year! It was not without its challenges, struggles, and stresses FOR SURE, but it was also full of laughter, togetherness, learning, growing, adjusting, readjusting, and so much love. I have compiled some of our highlights of year, and most of them are pretty ordinary family events! But in this family, it’s the wonderful ordinary mundane moments that make a[Read more]

Luton Family Christmas 2018

Hello my friends! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas over the past few days! We have prasied, taken it easy, stayed in jammies, eaten well, played games, rested, and generally had a wonderful few days of Christmas celebration.

Merry Christmas!

Hello my friends! And Merry Christmas Eve! After a relaxing weekend, a marathon gift-wrapping session, a few last-minute orders finally coming in, and some stocking-stuffer shopping, I think we are finally┬áready for Christmas! What about you? The kids and I spent Friday morning trying to clean up a bit before my in-laws came to visit. Did you know that Santa Claus doesn’t come to dirty houses? He also won’t leave toys for children whose rooms aren’t clean? That’s what I’ve[Read more]
