A 5-Day Weekend, Storm Clean Up & Mack’s First Soccer Game!

This “weekly recap” will be pretty sporadic. This week was so random and weird. Being out of school for 3 days due to Hurricane Irma threw me off! I didn’t know what day it was sometimes, and my concept of time was way off. Tuesday we were busy with storm cleanup, but Wednesday  I did…

Fall Cleaning, Surviving Irma & a Hurricane Slumber Party!

In my last blog, I mentioned that we were doing Fall Cleaning this weekend, and I wasn’t kidding! We spent almost the entire day cleaning and getting things ready for the change of seasons. I washed and ironed (whut) all the curtains in our house, cleaned the oven, dusted all the fans and light fixtures,…

Goodbye Summer!

I realized I haven’t posted a blog in a while… I definitely go through phases of wanting to blog all the time, and then being lazy about it. Plus, I don’t think my life is that interesting a lot of the time… But I thought I would go ahead and do an “update” post about…

Anniversary Getaway to Savannah! Day 3

“Nothing goes faster than a vacation…” – Ken Simpson I woke up Saturday morning and felt immediately sad. I couldn’t believe how fast our trip went by… We went upstairs and had breakfast in the dining room and got to chat with a few other guests at the B&B. After we packed our bags, we…

Anniversary Getaway to Savannah! Day 2

We decided to have breakfast in bed on Friday morning. The only time slot they had available was 10:30, and that was fine with us… We got to sleep in!    I loved wearing my robe every morning and evening in our room. Nothing like a robe and slippers to make you feel fancy.   …

Anniversary Getaway to Savannah! Day 1

It’s hard to believe that we have been married for 5 years. In a lot of ways, I feel like I’m still 17, so being married for 5 years really does make it sink it that I’m growing up and getting old(er). We spent our wedding night in Savannah at the sweetest B&B, The Gastonian….

Creamy Chipotle Stuffed Peppers

Good Morning! And Happy Hump Day! I’ve finally gotten some work done around the house that I’ve been avoiding… It feels good to check some things off your list! But, I wanted to take a break and come on here and share a new recipe I came up with last night.  I absolutely LOVE Mexican food,…

Hello Summer!

May was a strug. I never thought summer break would come. After our beach trip, I knew time would tick away slowly. The last month of school is full of fun, but also a lot of chaos. The kids have summer fever, the teachers are tired and everything is ready for a break. I had…

Summer Salad: Creamy Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

I wanted to share this recipe before Memorial Day because I love this dressing for a salad. It’s perfect served along side anything grilled! I love tangy dressings and this one has the perfect balance of sweet and tang. Creamy Honey Mustard Vinaigrette Ingredients: 1/4 cup white wine vinegar 1 TBS Dijon mustard 1 TBS…

Nothing Goes Faster Than a Vacation…

I realize I just shared a post about our cruise, so I know it seems redundant to share our vacation so soon… But it was a quick weekend getaway, and we probably won’t go on another one for a while, so you’ll just have to get over it : ) I’m so grateful for mini-vacations…
