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]

Easter Weekend Recap

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend- He Lives!  The kids had Good Friday off, which made for a great start to our Easter weekend, and to our Spring Break.  Here’s a bit of a recap of our beautiful Easter weekend! It was nice to take it easy on Friday morning.  Ben “built a factory” with his legos.  This kid LOVES his legos! While Brantley was playing Barbies, Gracie was watching tv and snuggling Dolly. But after[Read more]

Hello (Good) Friday!

Hello friends!  Happy (GOOD!) Friday, and first day of #LUTONSPRINGBREAK2018!!! I could not possibly be more pumped that we get one extra day of Spring Break starting today!! We are looking forward to resting and relaxing, cleaning up the house a bit, my parents coming into town for the weekend and for some Easter fun, and then for them to TAKE THE KIDS BACK TO BLUE RIDGE WITH THEM FOR A FEW DAYS!!  Scott and I will have two full[Read more]

Friday Coffee Talk

Happy Friday, friends!  Isn’t it funny how even if you’ve had the week off school or even if it’s the summer, it always feels SO GOOD to know it’s Friday??!  That’s totally how I feel today.  AND the fact that I’m doing something a little different on the blog today!  Instead of writing a post about what’s been going on around here lately and what we’ve been up to, I made a video! So pretend like we’re sitting together, over coffee, and[Read more]

Easter 2017 + Weekly Meal Plan

What a beautiful Easter weekend we had!  Not only was it literally beautiful- sunny skies and 78 degrees, but we were able to serve the community, spend time together as a family, worship in our amazing church, witness an inspiring Easter sermon, eat a delicious Easter dinner (if I do say so myself :)), enjoy an afternoon at the park, and even ice cream sundaes (or Easter Sundaes…get it?!).  A beautiful slice of life all in one weekend. We got[Read more]

Eating Our Way Through Savannah

Last Sunday, Scott and I were able to take a little trip away to Savannah, just the two of us!  Scott visits Savannah several times a year for work, and once a year or so, I get the opportunity to tag along.  Savannah is one of our very favorite cities, and we had a really wonderful trip.  AS I was looking back through my pictures, though, it seems like I tagged along just for the food, haha!  But, truth is,[Read more]

Easter Dinner Menu

We had a pretty big Easter last year, but this year we are keeping it simple just the five of us!  We have a big Easter Egg Hunt and community day of service with our church on Saturday, church on Sunday morning (after seeing what the Easter Bunny brought, of course), and our traditional Easter dinner early Sunday afternoon. Since we had a bunch of family in town last year, we had a pretty big dinner spread.  But since it’s[Read more]

What I’m Giving Up for Lent

As of yesterday March 1st, it’s officially Lent season.  And as I have been actively working on (in?) my faith for a while now, I thought it would be appropriate for me to make the sacrifice and give up something for Lent this year. Lent is the 40 days leading up until Easter, reflecting the 40 days and 40 nights that Jesus fasted and suffered in the desert before he started His ministry.  According to the Bible, he was tempted[Read more]

Easter 2015

We had a lovely, relaxing, and laid-back Easter this past weekend.  After the crazy week prior, it was nice to take it easy and just hang around the house, just the five of us, for the holiday. The Easter Bunny came!  I didn’t go crazy with the Easter baskets this year, and the girls got a Princess Barbie, a headband, and some candy.  Ben got Spiderman, a cute straw fedora, and candy.  Honestly, the kids played with the dolls, but[Read more]

Timeline of an Attempt to Take a Decent Easter Photo

I don’t know about you, but it takes me, on average, about 478 snapshots of my darling (but totally crazy) children before I actually get a decent one (maybe a *smidge* of an exaggeration, but it seriously feels that way).  Add an impatient husband, a week-long sugar high, and the promise of an impending tea party, and well, it’s pretty much impossible.  So here is exactly what happens, in order, as we tried to take an Easter photo yesterday… Try[Read more]
