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]

Weekend Recap: Family Visit, Braves Game, and a Big Birthday + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello, Friends!  Happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are glad to start a fresh, new week.  We had a jam-packed weekend, and I’m going to share a bit about it here today! We were so lucky to have Nana and Pop come into town on Friday afternoon to come visit and watch Ben’s baseball game Friday night, and the girls’ soccer games on Saturday morning.  A couple weeks ago, when Scott was home in Aiken for a night,[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]

Spring 2017 Must Haves

Spring has ARRIVED!  I think we have finally turned the corner, and have warm weather in the forecast from here on out.  Some seasons I am just so-so about the trends and fashions, but this spring I am LOVING all the new clothes!  And per my semi-annual tradition, I am sharing the items on my shopping list- my must haves for this Spring! 1. Ruffle T Shirts- I am loving all the ruffles all over tops, dresses, skirts, shorts, you name it.[Read more]

SunTrust Park + Weekly Meal Plan

Happy Monday, friends!  We had a great Spring Break, and lucky for me and Scott, it’s not quite over yet!  But more on our Savannah trip later this week.  Today I wanted to share a bit about our first trip to the NEW Braves Stadium- SunTrust Park! The Braves have kicked off their season, but haven’t actually had a home game yet.  But on Saturday, UGA played Missouri at the new stadium and since my brother is a UGA grad,[Read more]

Friday Favorites: Spring Earrings

First of all, can I just thank you for everyone’s comments and texts and messages from my post yesterday?!  I like to keep things really light around here most of the time– clothes and food and fun stuff– but when I go deep, I truly appreciate the support and the love. But, Fridays are for fun, right?!  So today I am sharing some of my favorite, fun spring earrings!!  I love jewelry, but I tend to keep it simple and[Read more]

Easter 2015

We had a lovely, relaxing, and laid-back Easter this past weekend.  After the crazy week prior, it was nice to take it easy and just hang around the house, just the five of us, for the holiday. The Easter Bunny came!  I didn’t go crazy with the Easter baskets this year, and the girls got a Princess Barbie, a headband, and some candy.  Ben got Spiderman, a cute straw fedora, and candy.  Honestly, the kids played with the dolls, but[Read more]

Timeline of an Attempt to Take a Decent Easter Photo

I don’t know about you, but it takes me, on average, about 478 snapshots of my darling (but totally crazy) children before I actually get a decent one (maybe a *smidge* of an exaggeration, but it seriously feels that way).  Add an impatient husband, a week-long sugar high, and the promise of an impending tea party, and well, it’s pretty much impossible.  So here is exactly what happens, in order, as we tried to take an Easter photo yesterday… Try[Read more]

Amanda’s Spring 2015 Fashion Must Haves

 The new season is upon us, friends!  I am a big fan of boots and sweaters and jeans, but after this yucky winter and lots of super cold weather, I am ready for bare legs, sandals, and loose, lightweight tunics.  Spring is here, and I am ready for some new clothes! Every season I make myself a “must haves” list.  I love buying clothes, but unless I focus my attention on a few key pieces that I really want, I[Read more]
