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was a couple of years overdue, since when I pulled them out this season, they were either stretched out, faded, or just outdated.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]

Luton Beach Trip 2018- Murrell’s Inlet

Hello my friends!!!  I have been absent from the blog the past week because we took our first beach trip of the summer with our Luton side of the family last week, and then a quick (but awesome) working trip to Chicago this past weekend!  I am still unpacking, still getting settled back in, and still readjusting, but I wanted to share a bit about our beach trip today.  Follow along if you’d like! We left last Saturday mid-morning for[Read more]

Easy Summer Sangria

I am a red wine girl.  It’s my favorite thing to drink, but when it begins to get warmer out, I have to make the switch over to white wine, because I can’t bear to drink room temp red wine when it’s 90 degrees out. Unless it’s SANGRIA! And then you can throw in a couple ice cubes, some fruit juice, and enjoy chilled red wine with a bit of sweetness.  The perfect summer drink.  But who has the time to mix[Read more]

#MamaSummerBucketList

As I was compiling our family summer bucket list over the weekend, I kept thinking of a few things here and there that I’d like to do or that I’d like to get done myself.  And I thought, “you know what?  We are going to have an awesome summer with all these fun things to do together as a family.  But mama has some things to do too! I think I need my own summer bucket list!”  And with that, the #MamaSummerBucketList was[Read more]

SUMMER. EVER!! We had a great end to the school year and a great weekend.   On Friday, the kids all had their last day parties, and I was so proud of[Read more]

10 Swimsuits + Coverups

So, swimsuit season is here.  And *confession time,* as much as I love the beach and love the pool, I am not excited about trying on swimsuits this year.  I didn’t get any new suits last year since we went to Disney World instead of the beach, so I already know I need a few new ones this year, and am really dreading it!  But at least there are FAR more one piece and tankini options than ever before, and[Read more]

Labor Day Weekend Recap + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful three-day Labor Day Weekend! We were able to head out of town for the weekend, and have a *few* pics to share if you’re interested in that kind of thing… Friday afternoon, we picked the kids up from school and wanted to do something a little different!  We headed straight to Michael’s and let the kids pick out some craft kits and supplies for a little Friday night crafting.  We hit up[Read more]

Solar Eclipse 2017

We had such a fun afternoon watching the eclipse as a family yesterday!  I checked the kids out of school after Brantley was so sweet and said she wanted to watch the eclipse with her brother and sister.  So we had a little eclipse party in our driveway! We headed outside at about 2:00, knowing that it was going to peak about 2:37.  We spread out a quilt, got out our eclipse-themed snacks, and alternated back and forth on the[Read more]
