Summertime Peach and Tomato Salad + Weekly Meal Plan

tomato and peach salad

I love finding simple recipes for all our fabulous summer Farmer’s Market finds. We love to scour our local market for squash, zucchini, cucumbers, greens, okra, tomatoes (of course), and Georgia favorites, peaches! The kids will just eat them like apples, but I like to find more creative ways to use them. So imagine my delight when I came across this recipe from Mark Bittman of the New York Times that I had saved (and printed out!) ages ago. So[Read more]

Mid-Summer Check-In

Hello my long-lost friends! I took a somewhat unintentional summer hiatus, but am back to check in with you! I hope your summer is going well- it’s lasted about 30 minutes for us, or so it seems. I CAN NOT believe it’s already halfway over! It’s equal parts depressing and motivating. We’ve got a lot to cram into the last month of summertime! But so far, we’ve had some fun, some work, some downtime, some travel, and I thought I’d[Read more]

This is 37: Things to Do This Summer

School is out for summer

HAPPY LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!!! We made it through what have proved to be the busiest three weeks of the whole school year. Busier than Thanksgiving AND Christmas, but now we’re through! And we have a NICE, LONG BREAK AND I CANNOT WAIT!!!! To wrap up my 37th birthday week I thought I’d share 37 things to do this summer! I’m making our annual Summer Bucket List, and adding some fun things of course, but also some totally doable no-pressure[Read more]

Summer “Reading”

I love to read.  I love books, I love stories.  But am I going to make time to sit down with a book one-on-one and read when I have precisely 867,932 things on my to-do list that are far more essential and critical?  Unlikely.  BUT, I am ALL ABOUT listening to books!  While I’m driving, while I’m cooking, while I’m exercising, while I’m working, I am multi-tasking like a BOSS and listening to all kinds of podcasts and books! This[Read more]

Back to School 2018

And here we are.  Back to school. Did we mark everything off our summer bucket list?  No.  But did we make the most of the summer break that we had?  We certainly made a valiant effort. All three kids started back to school yesterday, all at the same school, my beautiful babies.  Honestly, most days this summer I took for granted.  Late mornings, coffee in my pjs, snuggles on the sofa.  Sweet conversations and pressure-free bedtimes.  All summer long I thought,[Read more]

Friday Favorites

TGIF!  But actually, it’s more like ISIF (I’m Sad It’s Friday) because the kids go back to school next week.  Though I AM looking forward to more structure and routine, and the kids are SO EXCITED about going back to school, I just can’t help but be a sappy sentimental mom, just in disbelief that the kids are growing up so fast. BUT… let’s not get into all that quite yet!  Today I thought I’d bring back an old post[Read more]

What I’ve Worn This Summer

It’s been a WHILE since I’ve compiled a What I Wore post, and I figured it was long overdue!  Summer is so funny- you think you’re going to have all this time and get so much done, and then all of a sudden you have a WEEK left and over half your to-do list still to cross off.  Getting dressed in the summer is also kinda funny, since I don’t have to get out nearly as often and everything is[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]

Happy Independence Day!

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” –Ronald Reagan Happy Independence Day, my friends!!  I hope you’re celebrating our great nation’s birthday with friends and family, and celebrating all the wonderful liberties that our country has provided us.  God bless you and God bless America!

Amazon Swim Suit Reviews + Four Tips for Online Swim Suit Shopping

So, I needed to buy some new swimsuits this year.  It was a couple of years overdue, since when I pulled them out this season, they were either stretched out, faded, or just outdated.  It was time to go swimsuit shopping.  Womp-wahhhhhhhh. I LOVE shopping.  I do NOT love swimsuit shopping.  Oh, the days when I could run into Target and pull any old suit off the rack, and not even need to try it on!  I’m sure I’m not alone in[Read more]
