What Worked in 2017 + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope y’all had a wonderful weekend.  We drove to South Carolina Friday night and visited with our Luton family on Saturday for a family reunion (photos coming soon!).  We drove home afterward and went to bed at 10:00 (a recent record for me- I’m typically a night owl!) because we were WORN OUT.  Sunday was for church and laundry, and even though the kids were out of school yesterday to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, there’s no[Read more]

Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I cannot BELIEVE that Christmas is now less than one week away!  Are you ready?  Are you done with your shopping?  Are you ready to just sit back and enjoy the holiday cheer this week?  If your answers are no, no, and no, then I’m right there with you!!  I have a SUPER CRAZY week this week (just like last week- hello, only one post), we have three school parties this week, and we’re finishing up teacher gifts,[Read more]

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]

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]

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]

Business Boutique + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and the time change hasn’t messed you (or your kids!) up too much.  Thankfully our kids sleep a little late anyway, so yesterday wasn’t so bad.  But ask me again how it’s going by the end of this week, when the madness always seems to kick in, haha! I got back into town on Saturday evening from a life-changing weekend.  My Magnolia Marketing Group colleague, Michele, and I hit the road[Read more]

Happy Halloween! Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

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! I am a bit behind (what’s new) in sharing our goings-on, but wanted to share our weekend and everything[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]
