Friday- Week in Review

Whew!  FRIDAY.  Amiright?  We are ready for the weekend around here.  I thought I’d just share a few things that were happening in our world this week.  Other than counting down to today! Back to School 2.0 Brantley went back to school on August 5th, but Grayson and Bennett finally start school on Tuesday!  We had Open House last night, and both were so excited, have a few friends in their class, and are IN LOVE with their teachers.  Ben[Read more]

School Lunch Packing 101

School is back in session, and in our house, that means mama is packing lunches every day for my Brantley girl.  When Brantley was in kindergarten last year, I made her lunch ev-er-y-day, and though I started out excited to pack lunches, by the end of the year, my poor girl was getting whatever I could scrounge up in the pantry and the fridge.  But this year, I was determined to fix that! I plan out all our family’s dinners[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello!  We have been busy adjusting to our new school year routine, but I am back today with our meal plan for the week.  It’s interesting how my meal plans change from summer to fall, not just the ingredients and what sounds good on a hot summer night versus a chilly fall evening, but how I prefer much easier and convenient meals during the fall and winter because we are so busy and I’d rather not be cooking all afternoon![Read more]

Hello Monday

After a big week last week, here’s what we’re saying hello to on this fresh, new Monday morning! Hello First Grade!!  Brantley started school last Wednesday, and let’s just say that it has been a huge hit so far!  My biggest girl is not a morning person, but she popped right out of bed on Wednesday and was so excited (oh, if she would only pop out of bed like that every school day for the rest of the year!).  We’re only[Read more]

And Just Like That, Summer is Over

Today is very bittersweet for me.  I never expected to be a mom that was upset to see the school year start.  I am always so anxious for the new school supplies, for fall coming up, for new schedules and routines and structure, and some time for myself, but to be honest, I spent a lot of yesterday crying.   We have just had a rough past three weeks.  My ear infection that had me sidelined ended up turning into a double ear infection, bronchitis,[Read more]

Hello Monday

Hello Friends.  I can’t tell you how happy I am that today is a new day, and we have a fresh start to the week, after a pretty yucky past five days!  Here are the things I am saying hello to today… Hello Steroids and Antibiotics.  I have had a fever since WEDNESDAY of last week, and finally gave in and went to the minute clinic at Walgreens yesterday morning.  Evidently, I have had a raging ear infection!  The fever[Read more]

At Least It’s Friday…

I don’t get sick very often, but when I do, it’s usually just a cold and I can power through it.  But SHEESH, this one that I have picked up is tough.  I spent all day Wednesday and all day Thursday on the sofa, as the kids spent their days on the double crib mattress pallet I set up for them, watching movies and cartoons, and whatever else I could get them to do relatively quietly while I could keep[Read more]

What I Wore Wednesday

So, I have been trying to be better (again) about taking photos of my outfits each day, so I am back today with WIWW!  Here’s what I wore this past week: My favorite dress that I have made for myself, hands down!  The pattern I used was the Washi Dress by Rae Hoekstra, and I already have another one cut out and ready to sew, and plans for several more.  The dress fit perfectly (thanks to a well-designed pattern), and[Read more]


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]
