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…

My Idea of a Perfect Day

Spring is officially here. Each season has its own pros and cons, but something about spring just makes me feel good inside.  Today we decided to take full advantage of the day! First, we headed to Farmview Market in Madison, Georgia.  I love this place. Today was their Spring Harvest Festival and it was crazy…

Cruisin’: Spring Break 2017

I thought Spring Break would never get here! And then, just like *that* it was gone. We left around lunchtime Saturday. Of course, the plan was to leave a lot earlier, but you know how that goes : ) By the time we got to Miami, it was about 9:00PM, and we were starved.    We…

What’s Up Wednesday?

Happy New Year! This will different than my usual sporadic posting that I do on this blog, but Hey! It’s a new year. Why not switch it up? I have seen several blogs that I follow use this kind of format for a monthly or weekly update post, and I’m going to try it out!…

Christmas at The 101

“I’ll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams…” I know Christmas is over, but I wanted to document my decorations from 2016 before we take it on down on New Year’s Day. I love Christmas, just like everyone else, but I’m especially sad to take it all down this year. The lights, the…

A Family Favorite: Brown Rice

As long as I can remember, my family has been fixing this rice for special events and holidays. My Bopa absolutely loved it and it always reminds me of him when I have it.  Don’t let the name fool you. This isn’t boring, bland, gross brown rice… This is rich, buttery and the perfect side…

Christmas Candy: Homemade Butterfingers

This was a first time recipe for me… I’ve never actually made these, but I have held this recipe in my mind since I was a freshman in college. I absolutely love Butterfingers, so I’m not really sure why it took me so long to try these. They were so easy to make, and they…

Easy Christmas Craft: Burlap Garland

I have been wanting to do some Christmas crafting lately, but never seem to have the time. Everything either seemed like it will take too long or will cost too much money.. Or I think it will earn me a spot on PinterestFails.com… So, when I saw this on Facebook, I thought it looked so…

Peppermint Mocha Cookies

I love the seasonal drinks at Starbucks. I am a sucker for the red cups… I admit it. Does that make me basic? I don’t really care… : ) Anyway, one of my favorite drinks is the Peppermint Mocha. I love basic hot chocolate but there is something so refreshing about the cool flavor of…

Fall Favorite: Potato Soup & Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

There are probably 1 million ways to make potato soup, but this is my favorite way to make it. I usually have all these ingredients on hand, so it’s easy to throw together in a pinch… Like tonight when I realized I forgot to take something out of the freezer for dinner. Ha! : )…
