Friday Favorites

Never sad to see a Friday, and today is no exception!  The kids have early release today, then I have conferences with Brantley’s and Grayson’s teachers, and then we’re off for a week for Fall Break!  We have a few fun things planned, and I am also hoping for some downtime and relaxation too. Today I’m sharing a few of our favorite things from this past week.  Wishing you a very happy Friday and a great weekend! Dirty John Podcast[Read more]

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday!  And WHEW, what a weekend!  The kids were gone to Aiken visiting Nana and Pop and all their Luton cousins Thursday through Sunday, but we had so much going on, I stayed so busy!  Here’s a peek at what we did: I took the kids to meet my in-laws Thursday afternoon, and Scott headed out of town for a Friday work event.  I was totally on my own for the night!!  So I did a little solo shopping,[Read more]

Brantley & Grayson’s Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

On Saturday, we were so happy to celebrate Brantley and Grayson’s birthdays at our very favorite little local bookstore, The Story Shop in Monroe. I’ve talked about their store before, and how it is just a child’s daydream come to life.  And yes, their shop is wonderful, but their event space… …it’s incredible!  We decided to have an Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter’s Tea Party for the girls’ birthday.  Since their birthdays are less than a month apart (May 17 and[Read more]

Chattanooga Field Trip + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ours started out crazy and then slowed down considerably which was wonderful. My mom came into town on Thursday night to help with the kids so that I could go on an all-day field trip with Brantley and her FOCUS class.  Scott had an event all day Friday and was unable to take the other kids to school, so Bammy picked up the slack and then some!  I wanted to share[Read more]

Lutons Lately

I keep feeling like I post a lot about my Monday meal planning, and things I like on Fridays, and other “series” type posts here and there, but I don’t post as much about the day-to-day randoms or the goings-on of our family as much anymore.  Maybe those posts take a bit longer to write and I don’t have a ton of time on my hands right now, but I thought I’d throw together another “Lutons Lately” to fill you[Read more]

Brantley’s 7th Birthday

Last month, our big girl turned seven!  Her birthday was on a Saturday, and since Scott had an out-of-town work conference in Louisville, Kentucky the same weekend, we decided to treat Brantley to a little trip out of town by herself with mom and dad!  We didn’t tell her the big surprise until the day before, and she was SO EXCITED when she found out that she was going to get a special big girl trip for her special day!![Read more]

Brantley and Grayson’s Outdoor Movie Birthday Party

Since Brantley’s and Grayson’s birthdays are only 3 weeks apart, for the past four years we have combined their birthday parties, and had one big party for them together.  I offered them each the opportunity to have their own much smaller parties this year, but instead of two small ones, they wanted one big one again.  No problem by me, I said, and we started brainstorming!  I had been wanting to try an outdoor movie, and thought this would be the perfect[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]
