Things I Love: Holiday Dresses

We are lucky to have several fun holiday parties and events to attend this month (Scott might not consider us quite as lucky, ha! #homebody)!  Which also means that I’ve needed some cute, festive holiday outfits!  If you’ve followed me for long or read any of my outfit posts in the past, you know that I don’t love buying single-occasion outfits, and like for the pieces I buy to be very versatile.  Buttttttttt… sometimes you just have to break your[Read more]

Bammy’s Disney Birthday

For my mom’s 60th birthday, my parents took my whole family to Disney World over the week of Thanksgiving.  After we had the most magical time last year, we were so excited to have the opportunity to go back so soon!  And this time, with Bammy, PaDaddy, Uncle Ramsey, Aunt Beth, and cousins Sally Kate and William!  And we knew that just like last year, we wanted to SURPRISE the kids! *Yes, we wanted to surprise them to see the excitement in[Read more]

The Sweet Spot of Parenting

Happy NOVEMBER! Can you even believe there’s only two months left in 2018??  Blows. My. Mind.  After 3 Trunk/Trick or Treats, 4 different costumes for 4 different occasions for each of the 3 kids, and 9,734 pieces of candy, I am happy to be through Halloween and on the other side!  I really do love Halloween; I have such fond memories of counting down the days to dressing up and going door to door in search of my favorite candies[Read more]

Happy Independence Day!

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” –Ronald Reagan Happy Independence Day, my friends!!  I hope you’re celebrating our great nation’s birthday with friends and family, and celebrating all the wonderful liberties that our country has provided us.  God bless you and God bless America!

Happy Birthday, Brantley Girl!

Nine years ago today, we were blessed beyond belief as Miss Brantley Parrish entered this world and made me a mother.  She has grown and changed and challenges me daily, and I couldn’t possibly be more proud of her.  She is a natural born leader and a first-born through and through.  She is smart, loyal, helpful, creative, brave, independent, athletic, head-strong, respectful, stubborn, and challenging, and 100% just. like. me.  She makes crazy some days, but when I think about her[Read more]

Celebration Invitations with the Paperless Post

Who doesn’t love a party, am I right?  I love the planning, and the decorating, and making cute theme-coordinated finger foods, and of course, super cute matching invitations.  And in fact, I’ll be doing all those lovely things next month for Brantley and Grayson’s birthday party in June! But sometimes, you just run out of time.  Or you plan a party on the fly.  Or daggumit, you just don’t want to write out all the dang invitations ’cause you’re just[Read more]

Highlights of Spring Break

I am usually so excited for it to be Friday, but when it’s the Friday of Spring Break, it’s so sad!  It has gone by so quickly, and I guess the silver lining is that we are one step closer to summer!  We’ve had fun, and at least we still have today and the weekend relax, play, and maybe squeeze in a surprise or two. 🙂  Here’s a few fun snapshots from our week: I hope you’ve had a wonderful[Read more]

Valentine Ideas for the Kids

The kids always get super excited to pick out Valentines for their friends and classmates each year.  Of course, it stressed me out a bit, wanting to find something cute and unique, but not too expensive or labor-intensive!  So I Go straight to the source, and Pinterest never lets me down!  Here are some cute ideas that are a little bit different that we may or may not be using for our class Valentines this year: You’re a KOOL Valentine[Read more]

My Christmas Lesson

I had a horrible day on December 23rd. Our holiday season was very busy this year.  We were gone a lot, we had a lot of obligations.  We had holiday parties, LOTS of work, we bought gifts, we did this, we did that, we celebrated, we were here, there, and everywhere, and up to our elbows in Christmas cheer.  It was fun, and there were jingle bells, and Christmas cookies, and twinkly lights, but man, did I overdo it.  And it all[Read more]
