Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Happy Halloween, y’all! Today, I decided I wanted to make something festive for breakfast. I have had these in my refrigerator since the beginning of the month, and I just haven’t had time to make them! But, rather than cook them the old-fashioned way, I decided to try something different! I used the waffle iron…

Greek Festival with Mack!

This weekend my nephew came to visit! There was a lot going on in Milledgeville since our town’s festival, Deep Roots was going on downtown… We decided we didn’t want to fight the crowds downtown and headed down the road to Macon for the Central Georgia Greek Festival! I know Mack would love it because…

Girls Night: Pumpkin Decorating!

Tuesday night, some of my best girl friends came over to decorate pumpkins! We started by painting them… And then moved on to melting the crayons on top… It was super fun! We just used regular craft paint and crayons, and used hairdryers to melt the crayons… **Tip: Wear something you don’t mind getting wax…

Camping in the Smokies: Wednesday

No rain Tuesday night, which meant we got a good night’s rest! We slept a little later and just relaxed before it was time to start packing everything up. My favorite part of our tent was the “porch” on it. It was just a nice little area to sit and listen to the creek. I…

Camping in the Smokies: Clingman’s Dome & Newfound Gap

Tuesday afternoon we explored some in the mountains. B took me to two really cool places: Clingman’s Dome and Newfound Gap. Clingman’s Dome is the highest point on the Appalachian Trail. It’s so high!   I have a slight fear of heights, so  I was pretty overwhelmed… and this was just the parking lot! We…

Camping in the Smokies: Tuesday

People are always shocked when I tell them I have never been camping before… I grew up as one of three girls and neither of my parents are really “outdoorsy”, so it really shouldn’t be that surprising! But, now I can’t say that anymore. We went camping– in a tent– for 3 days in North…

Apple Picking!

I have so many posts to catch up on! We just got home from my first camping trip yesterday, and I have lots to share about that, but this post will be about another first: My first time picking apples! The day didn’t start out too great. Lots of rain and clouds!         Our…

The Week Before Fall Break…

I knew the week before Fall Break would be crazy, but I wasn’t really prepared for this week… It started on Monday. It was really like any other day… I woke up and rolled over to check my phone, and then realized something terrible: The sun was up. It was 8:30AM!!! I had overslept by…

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Today is the 6th day of rain and clouds… I was so excited about fall being here, but this is just depressing! I had to bust out the slippers yesterday after church. It was freezing! Maxx doesn’t really mind the cold, because that means he gets to snuggle up to us really close! After lunch…

Roll Tide! Alabama vs. UGA 2015

This morning I let myself sleep in a little. I woke up around 9:30 and then started getting the house ready for the party. I love throwing parties and cooking yummy food, and I knew this was going to be a BIG game! I have been planning this party since Alabama’s football schedule was announced!…
