I know I missed the first day of October, which is probably when I should have posted this, but…oh, well. At this point in my pregnancy (about 6 weeks to go), everything takes way more energy than I think it will and takes way longer than it should, so I’m a few days late getting…… Continue reading Hello, October!
This is one of those “clean out the pantry and freezer” meals that ended up tasting really good and made it into our regular rotation of easy weeknight meals. It cooks up in one pot in about 40 minutes and has lots of flavor, and it’s even toddler approved! Jack crashed my photo shoot for…… Continue reading One Pot Southern Veggie and Sausage Soup
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…… Continue reading White and Black Bean Chicken Chili
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…… Continue reading Fall Bucket List Craft
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…… Continue reading Mexican Chicken Soup with Cilantro Lime Rice
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…… Continue reading Makeover Monday – Boys’ Room Progress and Final Design Plan
Before we found out the gender of the baby a few weeks ago, Jeff was absolutely certain we were having a girl. I’m not gonna lie, all his girl talk had me dreaming of a nursery full of pretty florals. Now that I know I’m decorating for a boy, I’ve honestly been kind of stumped…… Continue reading Henry’s Nursery Inspiration
This meal comes together pretty fast and is great for meal prep. It packs well for lunches and heats up well. 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…… Continue reading Chicken Fajita Rice Bowls with Cilantro Lime Dressing
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…… Continue reading Makeover Monday – Our Kitchen Progress
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…… Continue reading Jack is TWO!
