Friday Favorites

What a week! TGIF! Last week was a slow, gradual crawl back to real life after the holidays, but this week I felt thrown to the wolves! But we have a fun outing planned for Saturday and then rest for us ALL! Sharing my weekly favorites today– enjoy and have a GREAT weekend! Rodan + Fields Radiant DefenseI have a lot of friends that sell Rodan + Fields, so I try to spread the love around when/if I decide to[Read more]

TGIF, Friends! We made it through our first week back to school, and as usual, I am tired and ready for the weekend! But no rest for the weary- our downstairs has been in desperate need of a fresh coat of paint for a looooong time, and I’m going to start to tackle it myself this weekend! It’s quite an undertaking though, and the main reason it’s taken so long to get it done- our first floor has a very[Read more]

Favorite Recipes of 2018

As per the norm around here, I did a lot of cooking this past year! I logged a good many of my dinner menus here on the blog and on Instagram, and I love looking back and seeing what we repeated, what worked and what didn’t, and what we want to eat more of this year! Here are some of my favorite recipes from this past year. Enjoy! Black Eyed Peas (in the Instant Pot!), Collards, and Cornbread Salad Pizza[Read more]

Hello my friends!  We have made it through another December week and are ONE STEP CLOSER to Christmas!!  Are you done with your shopping?  I HAVE SO MUCH LEFT TO DO.  Amazon Prime and UPS are gonna be wearing out the cement in my driveway, I’m afraid, over the next week, haha!  I have a special evening planned tonight for me and Brantley, and then a marathon Christmas baking session for the whole fam planned for Saturday.  Are you doing[Read more]

MORE Quick Trader Joe’s Dinner Ideas + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello my friends!  Forgive me for the lack of posts lately- life has gotten BUSY the past few weeks and I need about 3 extra hours in each day (at LEAST) to get everything done.  I say it all the time, but seriously, if I could choose a super power, it would be that I would never get tired or never need to sleep.  Wouldn’t that be the best?! ANYWAY- over the last two weeks I was able to compile[Read more]

In My Shopping Cart: Midi Dresses + Meal Plan Monday

Happy Monday, my friends!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  We were able to get some good rest (hallelujah!!), do some long-needed things around the house, and just spend some time taking it easy as a family. As I start seeing more and more fall fashion sneak peeks, I get more and more excited for the upcoming season.  Jeans, booties, cardigans, and allllll my favorites!  But, it will be sweltering for at least another month and a half, so[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday- Back to the Routine

Hello friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  We were able to relax for a bit and recharge our batteries.  Onto another busy week!  All fall sports will be kicking into full gear this week as Ben starts flag football, Gracie resumes gymnastics, and Brantley continues her third season of softball. And I am resuming my Meal Plan Monday posts today!  During the summer all our plans and schedules are pretty lax, and so was my meal planning,[Read more]

The Secret to a Good Vegetable Plate

We have been taking full advantage of the beautiful bounty of fresh summer vegetables readily available at our local farmer’s markets lately.  Not just for a juicy tomato sandwich, or for a savory side of sauteed squash (bonus points for alliteration!), but for the real gift of the Southern summer– a vegetable plate! There is hardly a vegetable that I don’t like, so I could have a plate FULL and be happy for dinner.  BUT, there is definitely a difference between a[Read more]

Bammy’s Easy (and delicious!) Ice Cream Cake

I don’t make desserts very often at our house.  We’re just not huge sweets people, and it seems that everytime I make a cake or a pie, everyone might have a taste, but I end up polishing off the rest!  But I tried something new for Brantley’s birthday back in June, and it was a big hit with the kids, and so much so that I made it for our friend’s Fourth of July party yesterday!  And it’s perfect for[Read more]

Marinated Olives

marinated olives

We love snack trays in our house.  Cut up veggies, some crackers, cut up apples and grapes, nuts, hummus, cheese or other spreads, and pickles make for a perfect snack for the kids after school or for a happy hour tray for the adults!  We’ve even put them together for super easy “serve yourself” kind of lunches or dinners on the weekends.  And I have one new addition to the trays- Homemade Marinated Olives! Now, you’ve all seen the amazing[Read more]
