Lutons Lately + Weekly Meal Plan

Hi Friends!  I hope you are safe and secure and out of the way or Hurricane Irma that is blowing through Florida and now up through Georgia today.  We’re experiencing Tropical Storm-force winds and rain here today, and since they cancelled school for today and tomorrow, with the exception of a meeting I had to run to, we’re hanging out at home, hunkered down! We have had so much going on in the past week and a fun weekend, so[Read more]

August Favorites + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend– didn’t it just fly by??  Sadly, my Ben started running a fever again on Friday night, and then threw up early Sunday morning, and then again right before we were to head to church (the girls and I still went since we had a few obligations, but Scott stayed home to take care of Ben).  But we still made the most of it, played a little ball, relaxed, got about 237 loads of[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]

Hello Tuesday + Weekly Meal Plan

Greetings, friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We spent ours at the ballfield all day Saturday, then in church and at Trader Joe’s on Sunday!  A little bit of relaxing, and a little bit of preparing for the upcoming (busy) week, and then a doozy of a Monday.  I’m happy that this is the kids first FULL week of school (we started on Wednesday last week), and I got up early yesterday morning to get the week’s worth[Read more]

July Favorites + Weekly Meal Plan

CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE TOMORROW IS AUGUST????  iIt blows me away that tomorrow is the last day of our summer break, and the kids will be going back to school on Wednesday.  It’s definitely bittersweet for me- I am ready for a return to routine and schedule, but I love the laid-back summer days and will miss the kids when they’re at school (even though they drive me bananas sometimes).  More than anything, I am sad that they are growing so[Read more]

A Change in Our Diet + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello, my friends!  And Happy Independence Day weekend!  We had a jam-packed weekend, are doing a bit of work today (SO MANY fun, new things going on with Magnolia Marketing Group!), and then we’re doing some more celebrating tomorrow! Over the weekend, we watched a few documentaries that made a pretty major impact on us and how we eat.  What the Health and Forks Over Knives (both on Netflix) both examine how a whole food, plant-based diet is much better[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello, Friends!  I hope you had a nice weekend.  I had a SUPER busy end to last week but had a lovely, laid-back weekend.  We headed out to our local farmer’s market on Saturday, just to be rained out (boo), we ate a mediocre lunch at one of our previously favorite places (we’ll try again!), and then we went to a new little farm stand near our house and got bad corn.  BAD CORN!  Who even knew there was such[Read more]

Happy Mother’s Day + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!  I heard a quote over the weekend, “Mother’s Day is not about letting mom relax, but acknowledging that mom never relaxes.” How true, right, haha!  My husband and kids gave me a wonderful day to top off a fun weekend. We wrapped up Ben’s baseball season on Friday night, and got some ice cream on the way home.  He loved baseball so much that I signed him up for[Read more]

(Short) Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello, Friends!  Last week was a killer, and this week isn’t going to be much easier.  I’m so glad that business is keeping me super busy, but on top of Easter, Teacher Appreciation Week 1 and now week 2, full weekend after full weekend, after full weekend, I am worn out!  So forgive me for short and sweet posts, but I just cannot cram everything into the 24 hours a day we are given right now! We had a fun[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]
