Shrimp Poke Bowls + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello friends, and happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We spent our Saturday volunteering… …and then Sunday we took it easy for our 12th anniversary! Us as babies before we HAD babies, 12 years ago! But what I’m talking about today is what we had for dinner Saturday night– my new FAVORITE, easy dinner.  SHRIMP POKE BOWLS! Once a month I have a work event in Atlanta right across the street from The Poke Bar, and it’s[Read more]

In My Shopping Cart: Midi Dresses + Meal Plan Monday

Happy Monday, my friends!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  We were able to get some good rest (hallelujah!!), do some long-needed things around the house, and just spend some time taking it easy as a family. As I start seeing more and more fall fashion sneak peeks, I get more and more excited for the upcoming season.  Jeans, booties, cardigans, and allllll my favorites!  But, it will be sweltering for at least another month and a half, so[Read more]

Easter Leftovers, Repurposed

If you’re anything like me, you may or may not have about 13 various tupperware containers full of Easter leftovers in your fridge.  My mom and I made tons of food, and as usual, there was plenty leftover!  And like my dad and I were discussing, eating leftovers is a good thing when you had a really great meal that you want to partake in for a second (or third!) time.  But eating leftovers is not nearly as fun when you’re[Read more]

Marinated Olives

We love snack trays in our house.  Cut up veggies, some crackers, cut up apples and grapes, nuts, hummus, cheese or other spreads, and pickles make for a perfect snack for the kids after school or for a happy hour tray for the adults!  We’ve even put them together for super easy “serve yourself” kind of lunches or dinners on the weekends.  And I have one new addition to the trays- Homemade Marinated Olives! Now, you’ve all seen the amazing[Read more]

What We’ve Been Watching + Weekly Meal Plan

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a great weekend!  We took it easy- did some laundry, tidied the house, took Brantley for her softball observation on Saturday, then returned back home for more relaxing.  Sunday was super rainy and yucky, and as much as we were tempted to stay in bed, we made it to Sunday school and church.  But that was as productive as I got- I took a pretty solid Sunday afternoon nap on the couch!  Woke up to[Read more]

The Ultimate Chopped Salad

Like I posted last Friday, as the weather gets warmer, I crave lighter, fresher dinners.  And since we spend several nights a week at the baseball field, or at church, or on the soccer field, not only do I want something light and fresh, but also quick and easy!  And it’s hard to get easier than a nice, big NO-COOK salad.  For those nights that we either have very little time between dinner time and leaving for the ball fields[Read more]

Friday Favorites

I’m not sure I could be more excited that today is FRIDAY!  Maybe if it were next Friday (right before our Spring Break starts), but this is pretty good too.  Bennett has a baseball game tonight and we have the girls’ soccer games Saturday morning, and then it’s wide open.  Sadly the house is a wreck and I have PILES of laundry today, but still–WEEKEND! With the weather finally warming up a bit, I have been craving lighter meals for dinners.  I[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello Friends!  ONLY FIVE MORE DAYS TIL SUMMERRRRRRRRRR!!  We are seriously in the homestretch now, and even though I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, we have a BIG week.  Two birthdays, a field trip, gifts to make, water days to attend, good gracious…I get the itching to start making a to-do list as I write this.  BUT, if I can just make it through this week…SUMMER!!!!!  And with that, here’s our meal plan for the[Read more]
