Like most people I know, I tend to enjoy certain foods during certain times of the year. After the holidays, with endless sweet treats and decadent meals, we regularly juice and try to eat healthy. During the summer months, we tend to grill out and eat lots salads, when fresh produce is abundant. As soon […]
Growing up, my family would visit P.F. Chang’s any time that we traveled. It was always fun to explore a new city and we loved finding a P.F.Chang’s along the way. We didn’t have one in the town where I grew up so it was always a special treat to enjoy Mongolian Beef or Crispy […]
If your house is anything like ours, you are up to ears in Halloween candy. We saw our first snowflakes of the season on Halloween. While we were out trick or treating it was 40 degrees with high winds. We noticed significantly less trick or treaters out this year and people were unloading candy […]
For the first few years that Currey and I were married, I was a part of the Junior League. It was a great opportunity to meet new friends and volunteer in my community. I got to serve on several projects and made great memories. A highlight of every year was our fundraising luncheon. In addition […]
Hello friends! As is usually the case, I ended up taking a much longer break from blogging than I had initially anticipated. Life has been crazy busy. Yes, even busier than usual. I’ve made a change in my work schedule that has taken time for us to get used to as a family. It’s […]
For the last 6 years, I’ve done a weekly bible study called Bible Study Fellowship. If you are looking for a study to help your faith grow or to learn how to better study the bible, BSF is worth checking out. It’s an interdenominational bible study and there are groups that meet all over the world. […]
Before we had kids, we didn’t have great eating habits. We’d eat fast food a couple of times a week. I’d also eat fast food with my co-workers a couple of times a week as well. I had begun making more meals at home but I still wasn’t a great cook. We ate lots of […]
Can you believe it’s already June? The month of May just flew by! Each year I marvel at how busy May continues to be. Ballet recitals, parties to celebrate the end of school and so many other events celebrating the beginning to summer. It’s all fun but just keeps us busy. Every Memorial Day weekend, […]
Hello there friends! I wasn’t planning on taking such a long break from blogging but I’m glad I did. Even a short break gives me time to miss blogging. I enjoy sharing recipes and keeping up this blog but constantly churning out posts can be draining. I’m returning from my hiatus refreshed and I’ve got […]
Hi there friends! Hope that you had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Our day was lovely and full of relaxation. Just what this momma wants! Today I wanted to share another Stitch Fix Box with you. My last post was so popular that I intend to make this a monthly contribution. In case you aren’t familiar with […]
If you’ve ever eaten a meal at our home, you know that I tend to over prepare. I never want anyone to leave our house hungry so I always tend to go overboard with the food. Which brings us to today’s recipe. When Kristie asked me to bring a treat to our get together, I instantly […]
Have you heard of Door to Door Organics? It’s a company that delivers organic fruits and vegetables to your front door. What makes this great is that the customer picks how often to get boxes and what size box to get. The order is easy to customize too. I get an email 5 days before […]
When I was invited to the Big Fork Brands Blogger Breakfast I was thrilled. Enjoying a delicious breakfast that I didn’t have to prepare and the chance to connect with other bloggers was worth the drive to the city. As I began to research Big Fork Brands Bacon Sausage my enthusiasm grew. It’s sausage made […]
My posts seem to be focused on adoption this week. I promise that this won’t become a blog completely devoted to adoption but that’s what’s going on in life right now. As we’ve begun the adoption process we’ve realized the financial commitment is significant. We’ve always known this was true but now that we are […]
Y’all sure know how to make a girl feel loved! Thank you, thank you for your kind words about our adoption. We are so excited for this journey and I felt like so many of you are celebrating with us! It brings me such joy. I’m so thankful for each kind comment, email, text and […]
