VEO Gala Recap + Weekly Menu Plan

Hello Friends!  Happy Monday!  Last week was a rough one- with Scott and Ben both home sick all week (strep for Ben, upper respiratory infection for Scott), AND Valentine’s Day, AND life and work that didn’t stop, so when Friday arrived, and the boys were starting to feel a bit better we were glad for a break! Brantley had her first softball practice of the season, so we spent a bit of time out at the ballfield, and got home[Read more]

Four Years of Father-Daughter Dances + Weekly Meal Plan

On Friday night, Scott went to his FOURTH Father-Daughter Dance with his little girls (WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE). It’s Brantley’s and Grayson’s favorite night of year!  Fancy dresses, (a little bit of) makeup, (just barely) high heels, and a special night out with their Daddy. As I was posting this year’s pictures, I was reminded of years past.  Anyone remember this sweet little girl? Brantley’s first Daddy-Daughter Dance was in kindergarten, and I thought she looked so, so beautiful[Read more]

My Favorite Instant Pot Recipes + Weekly Meal Plan

If you follow along with any of my meal planning or recipe posts, you know that I looooooove my Instant Pot.  It’s the electric pressure cooker that I got Christmas 2016  and used it so much over the last year that I leave it out on the countertop all the time.  We use it almost daily for one thing or another and is easily my favorite appliance in the kitchen.  I know it was a very popular Christmas gift again this[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]

Lutons Lately + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We spent our time cleaning the house, relaxing, getting a lot of work done, and getting these kids ready to go back to school today!  Today I thought I’d share what’s been going on around here lately, and what we’ve been up to. Last weekend we headed to Columbia, South Carolina, for a Luton family reunion!  We joined my in-laws, brothers and sisters in law, all the cousins, my husband’s aunts[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday: Thanksgiving Edition

We’ve had one dinner already (as shown above- Thanksgiving at Mom & Dad’s house this past weekend), but I’m also getting ready to make Thanksgiving dinner at home for the five of us on Thursday!  I don’t want to make a huge dinner with tons of leftovers, but I also want to include all our traditional favorites!  So here’s what we’ll be eating and celebrating with on Thanksgiving Day: Turkey- Instead of roasting a full-size bird for our family of five, the past few years,[Read more]

Memes for Monday: Food + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We wrapped up our fall ball season (can I get a HALLELUJAH!) and knocked out one team party on Saturday, then I taught Sunday school at church Sunday morning, cooked, got some laundry, cleaning, and decluttering done, then had a potluck dinner at church and choir practice Sunday night.  I’ve hardly had time to sit down!  But alas, here we are on Monday, and it’s back to the grind. I see[Read more]

Date Night In Box + Weekly Meal Plan

Scott and I are homebodies.  We love a good dinner out once in a while, but most weekends (and weeknights, duh), you can find us on our sofas, half-watching tv and half-on our computers.  Romantic, right? Haha!  So when I came across Date Night In Boxes a few months ago, I thought it sounded like a fun way to shake up our typical evening routine.  And a few weeks ago, we tried one out! We got our cute little box[Read more]

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]
