White and Black Bean Chicken Chili

Y’all – last week I came down with the WORST cold. I was coughing, sneezing, and could barely talk (not a good combo for a teacher). On Wednesday, all I wanted was a big bowl of chicken soup, but plain chicken soup is not one of Jeff’s favorite meals, so I decided to try to…

Fall Bucket List Craft

As soon as September arrives, I’m ready for pumpkins and boots and bonfires and all things FALL. As Jack is getting older, I want to make sure that we make the most of each season we have together. Last weekend, we made a Fall Bucket List together (meaning that he picked out the stickers and…

Mexican Chicken Soup with Cilantro Lime Rice

Fall is my absolute favorite season, and even thought we are FAR from it feeling like fall here in Alabama, football season has started and there is fall decor in all the stores and I’m cranking my AC and lighting my pumpkin spice candles and pretending that the temps are dropping and the leaves are…

Makeover Monday – Boys’ Room Progress and Final Design Plan

I wish I had a completed room to share with you this month, but we’ve been moving slowly on this makeover since I’m back at work and our schedule is kind of hectic. Last month, I shared my inspiration post for Jack’s Big Boy Room, followed by an inspiration post for Henry’s Nursery. After looking…

Ingredients: 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts 1 can whole kernel corn 1 can black beans 2 cups white rice 1 green bell pepper, sliced thin 1/2 yellow onion, sliced thin Taco seasoning (I…

Makeover Monday – Our Kitchen Progress

Now that school is back in session, I’m not going to have much time to focus on projects around the house. I still have a few things I want to finish, like painting all our interior doors, decorating Jack’s room, and setting up a nursery for the new baby. For the most part, though, any…

Jack is TWO!

I normally don’t share two posts in one day, but we just got pictures back from our photo shoot for Jack’s two year old pictures and they are so adorable that I had to share! We have used Heather Griffin from New Creations Photography for all our family pictures since we got married and she…

Back to School – New School Year Resolutions

Happy Wednesday, friends! Some of you might not know that I am a teacher by trade. I teach high school English, and tomorrow is my first day back at work after a wonderful summer off. It’s always hard to get back into the grove of work after so much time off and it can be…
