What I’ve Been Listening To + Weekly Meal Plan

podcast

Was yesterday the most Monday of all Mondays or what?  Losing an hour and springing forward has our whole family out of sorts.  Not to mention that it was a rainy and cold morning, and throw in a case of strep throat for Miss Brantley, and we had a rough start to the week.  But it’s supposed to be sunny and a bit warmer today, so here’s hoping for the best! Now y’all know what a huge fan of TV and[Read more]

Hello Monday + Weekly Meal Plan

Happy Monday, friends!  I haven’t done a post like this in quite a while and thought I’d share the things I’m saying hello to on this overcast Monday… Hello Quiet House The kids are back in school today after a week off for mid-winter break.  As much as I loved the break and time off with the kiddos, I am so glad to get back into our routine and get their schedules back to normal.  My kids thrive on routine, and a[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]

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!  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]
