Friday Favorites

Happy Friday Friends! This week has just been crazy, so today's list of FAVORITES is going to be short and sweet.

Daily Dime {October 2017}

If you are looking for our monthly Recipe Club, Don't Panic! You can still link up below!~ I was part of an amazing Fall Recipe Hop yesterday and I shared our FAVORITE Soups, Stews, and Chilis! So be sure to check it out! 

Just call me nosy because I love day in the life post. I love to see how people go about their normal day to day life. 

Soups, Stews, and Chilis

It has finally started to feel like fall here in Georgia (well just yesterday, haha). 
When I think of fall, I often time think of one-pot meals. That is why I love my slow cooker so much!  and FYI-It's 50% off. It's still pricey but oh so worth it! 

I thought it would be fun to put together a list of our FAVORITE Soups, Stews, and Chilis! 

Hello Monday {Back to Reality}

Hello Monday, Hello Reality.....Man after having 10 days off, reality is HARD! #thestruggleisreal

But we did have an AWESOME weekend that I will recap for you guys! We had a pretty low key Fall Break but ended it with a bang!! 

So grab our graphic and join us!! 

Friday Favorites {Fall Break Edition}

Happy Friday! Yay for the weekend, but BOO for the end of our Fall Break! We always enjoy our time off from reality! We are headed to Pigeon Forge today for an overnight adventure! Last night, Ben and I went to see Garth Brooks open up the Mercedes-Benz Stadium for concerts! Garth is a long time FAVORITE of Ben's! Be sure to check back here Monday for a recap of both fun events! 

So like most Friday's, I am sharing our FAVORITES from the week! 

5 Ways to Make your Home Feel Cozy

One reason I love Fall & Winter is the feeling of coziness that those seasons bring. 

The definition of 
Adjective: giving a feeling of comfort, warmth, and relaxation. 

That is exactly how I want my home to feel. Wheather it is just my family of 4 or a big get together like our Bulldawg Bash! I want everyone to feel welcome and cozy! 

Today I am going to share with you 5 Ways that I make my Home feel Cozy. 

Happy Birthday Ella!

I cannot BELIEVE that my Ella is 10 today! Two WHOLE hands, a full decade......and cue the tears! 
She reminded me earlier this year that I was going to have a double-digit daughter and a teenager as a  son! Thanks, Ella....NOT! 😢😢
Since we are on Fall Break, I asked Ella if she wanted to do anything special for her birthday! She said "I want to sleep in, have a movie marathon, and eat breakfast for dinner" Well her wish is my command.... today on the movie line up we have Harry Potter, Space Jam, and Hocus Pocus!! We had her friend birthday party 2 weekends ago with lots of red carpet fun! This past weekend, we spent the day at Jaemor Farms with some of my family and ended it with lunch with Ben's parents! So this sweet girl has had a full week of celebrating! 

Hello Monday {Fall Y'all}

Hello Monday! We are on Fall Break this week and we are SO excited! No schedules, No Homework! But both kids are getting their bottom braces today, so we have an afternoon of soup and movies ready!! 

Hope you guys had a GREAT weekend! We sure did, so like most Monday's, I am going to recap our FUN! 

Grab our graphic and join Johannah and me....

Friday Favorites

Well, Friends, We made it to FRIDAY and the kids are officially on FALL BREAK! We have a lot planned this weekend and next week! With a good mixture of fun and relaxation! We are also celebrating a certain little girl turning 10! 

As usual, I am sharing a few of our FAVORITES this week! 

Book Club for Girls {or Boys}

So one day Ella came to me and said: "Mom, I want to start a book club". You can only imagine my book-loving self-jumping for joy! I said: "Ella, you know that means you have to actually read a book" (she has a tendency to start something and not finish it). We decided on Wonder by RJ Palacio because they were reading it in class. Not to mention, she came home every day talking about the book. 

October Monthly Goals

Another Month, Another set of Goals!! I love setting goals and especially posting them on this little space of mine because I kinda feel like y'all help keep me accountable!

So here is a little bit of what we have been up to this month!! 
I am joining MelShay, and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday!! 

Fall Home Tour

Happy Tuesday, Y'all! Hope your week is off to a great start! Today I am sharing how I decorated my house for the FALL!! This past July, I really cleaned out my decorations, rearranged some furniture, and minimized a lot of my decorations that were on display! I was going with the "less is more" theory. I really wanted to go with the same theory for my Fall decorating. 

Hello Monday

Oh, Monday we meet again. After the crazy busy week, we had last week, you came rather quickly! 
Like most Monday's, I am recapping our weekend. So I hope you will join Johannah and me for Hello Monday! 

5 Things Friday {September 2017}

Happy Friday Friends!! Y'all know how much I LOVE Fridays but I really love this FRIDAY! 
Today I am the guest co-host along with Sarah for the second 5 Things Friday! I am going to share 5 things that are CURRENTLY bringing me JOY! 

Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Bread

I got a bread machine last year and I love it. But I only seem to make bread in it during the cooler months. I'm not sure why that happened. I guess I associate "baking" with Fall and Winter. Who knows... So today I am going to share a Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Bread recipe that I make in my bread machine. My co-host posted their favorite recipes yesterday but since it was my anniversary I had a special post up instead! If you are like me and just getting a recipe post up today or have one you would love to share, link up below! 

14 years and going strong.....

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are having a great week. Today is a special day in my life. On this day 14 years ago, I became a Mrs. So instead of my normal recipe club day post I am going to share 14 things that I have learned as a wife.
However, I do hope you join my co-host Johannah and Jenna for Recipe Club Day and tomorrow I will be sharing my yummy chocolate chip banana nut bread recipe...YUM!

Fall Bucket List

Y'all I love summer! But Y'all I really do love Fall most of all! Give me all the layers, booties, and pumpkin spice. :) So with the first day of FALL this Friday I thought it would be fun to share our Fall Bucket List!

Happy Friday! I hope you guys have had a great week. We survived Hurrican Irma. She was one bad lady. We had winds up to 45 mph and the rain...oh my goodness. Luckily, we did not lose power.

What's in my Bag?

*this post is NOT sponsored. I just love these brand of bags and giving my honest opinion. 

I love these type post. Just like I love "A Day in the Life" post...Just call me nosy. I love to see other's women's purses and what's inside. I mean they say you can tell a lot about a woman from what's in her purse. So here is what is in mine....

Hello Monday

Hello, Monday! I hope you guys had an amazing weekend. We have been following Hurricane Irma fairly closely. The kid's school was canceled today due to the heavy rains and winds plus they are anticipating power outages. So I ended our weekend stocking up on food to feed these kids for the day and possibly tomorrow! HA! 

But before I recap our weekend, I wanted to take a moment to remember 9-11. I will NEVER forget where I was when the first plane hit the twin towers. I still get chills thinking about it. Praying for all the ones that were affected by this tragic event. 

Friday Favorites

Yippee, We made it to the weekend again! Short weeks always mess me up and feel like they last forever! Tell me I'm not alone on this.....
Like most Friday's, I'm sharing our FAVORITES this week! 

Bulldawg Bash

We have hosted our annual "Bulldawg Bash" for the first Georgia Football game of the season for 8 years! We create some of the best memories that will last a lifetime. We hosted our annual Bulldawg Bash this past Saturday. 

August Book Review

I am known for reading "smut" books and this month was no different. I always tell myself that I am going to read something more educational, but truth be told reading romance novels is my #guiltypleasure. Here is what I was able to read this month.

Fall Favorites

*This post contains affiliate links 

Hello FRIDAY! This was the kids first full week back in school. When my kids start back to school, I automatically think it should be FALL!! Am I the only one??

It makes me want to crank down the AC and start a fire 😉 Anyone else have Fall Fever??

Back to School

The kids have been back in school for one week today! I can't believe it! So today I thought I would share a few of our BACK TO SCHOOL Must Haves!! 

All because TWO people fell in LOVE!

I can't believe that my nephew, Eric is married much less going to be a FATHER in 4 MONTHS!! It feels like he was just born a few years ago. Now,  he is all grown up with a with a family of his own. 

Eric and Candance got married on July 15th, 2017 at 5 pm in Pigeon Forge, TN! 
It was a beautiful ceremony but boy was it HOT! 

Eric asked me to take some pictures for them. I had to remind him that I am NOT a professional photographer but I would do my best!! 

So here are some of the moments that I captured! I gave the bride the SD card with over 600 pictures on it!
