Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  Can you believe that Christmas is TWO WEEKS FROM TODAY??  **Cue stress and anxiety levels to skyrocket.**  This season is flying by unlike any year in the past.  I am trying my very best to savor it and slow down a bit, but it’s SO HARD.  But we did have our first family Christmas with the Luton side this past weekend, and we were able to relax and just hang out with family, and let the kids play[Read more]

5 Ideas for Thanksgiving Leftovers

Hello friends!  I Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday!  We spent it at home, our sweet little family, and had a wonderful day.  I prepped several dishes Wednesday night, so my cooking on Thursday wasn’t bad at all, but actually relaxing!  In fact, I think it was one of my best Thanksgiving dinners that I have prepared.  And, as expected, we have plenty of leftovers to last us at least until tomorrow, if not the rest of the weekend! And if[Read more]

Weekly Meal Plan

I have to admit, I’m getting really excited about Thanksgiving dinners!  We’ll get a couple family dinners, and then on actual Thanksgiving Day, my little family just stays home and has Thanksgiving just the five of us.  It’s one of my very favorite days of the year- we make our family favorites, eat, relax, and enjoy each other’s company!  We might throw in a Christmas movie too, to kick off the season. 🙂  But this week, we’re sticking to our plant-based[Read more]

Hello Friends and Happy Halloween!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend, a good start to your week, and are excited about Trick or Treating tonight!  The kids are THRILLED, of course, and I am looking forward to walking around the neighborhood in the chilly fall air, with my drink in hand, and stealing the kids’ good candy!   The #candytax is real, y’all!

Five on Friday

Hello friends!  I know I say this all the time but WHOOOAAAA, this week has been ridiculous.  But YEAH– we have three kids, three businesses we’re running, on top of friends, family, baseball/softball, OH YEAH I NEED TO CLEAN THE HOUSE AND DO SOME LAUNDRY, church, school, I NEED TO SHOWER AT SOME POINT, and oh yeah, SLEEP!  Haha, no rest for the weary, right?!  Here are five things for this Friday before the three day weekend (cheers to that, amirite??!),[Read more]

Honey Vanilla Iced Coffee

It is no secret that I am a HUGE coffee drinker.  If it’s hot, there is a 99% chance it’s either black (coffee) or a latte (espresso), but if it’s iced, I like to branch out and try different flavor combinations.  So when I read about a Honey Vanilla Iced coffee the other day, I knew I had to try it out, and now it’s my favorite cold, mid-afternoon pick-me-up! I’m sharing my “recipe” with you today!  I put “recipe”[Read more]

Weekly Meal Plan

Mondays are no joke when you are recovering from a busy weekend and coming down with a cold!  Ugh.  Ben started running a fever on Saturday night, and by early Sunday evening, I knew that I was getting it too.  Luckily, no fever for me (so far, at least. Fingers crossed!), just congestion, scratchy throat, headache, and achy body.  Happy fall- the allergies have arrived!  So my diffuser is practically pumping right into my face, and I am drinking hot[Read more]

Lutons Lately + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We were both laid-back AND productive, and I call that a win.  I can’t even begin to believe that this is our last full week of summer before school starts back next Wednesday!  So we’re trying to cram a few fun things into this week, in addition to starting fall baseball and softball for the girls (!!!), and also get some school supplies and back to school clothes bought!  No rest[Read more]

What We’ve Been Eating + Weekly Meal Plan

Hi friends, and Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend– ours was spent recharging and relaxing, and snuggling with the kiddos after their week away! We’ve been on our new eating journey for a few weeks now, eating a more plant-based diet and very limited dairy, meats, and other animal products.  It is going really well, and I thought I’d share a bit about what we’ve been eating today. Like I said when we first started, we[Read more]

Brown Sugar Pound Cake with Homemade Whipped Cream

Back on Father’s Day, I wanted to make a yummy dessert to finish off our celebratory dinner.  But since we had just gotten back from out of town, and I was already making a big dinner, I needed a low-maintenance solution.  I only had to look as far as the back of my brown sugar box! This Brown Sugar Pound Cake that I made was easy, delicious, and I actually had everything on hand to make it.  You can add[Read more]
