Spring Bucket List | 2019

Hello Monday | 8th Grade Formal Edition

Happy Monday Friends! How was your weekend? We had a great one and I can't wait to share it with y'all because my baby boy went to his 8th grade formal. I mean where has the time gone? Mamas with babies...really don't blink. It's true time really does fly.

Friday Favorites | Yoga Edition

 Happy Friday Friends!! The kids are home today and we are excited. It's also the 8th Grade Dance tonight for Ian! EEK!

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

Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad

Hey Friends! I hope your week is going well. Many of you know that I have been a WW member for about a year and a half now.

I am constantly looking for food items low in points. I love chicken salad but the mayo would make it high in points and since I only get 23 points per day I needed to find a lower point option. After looking on Pinterest for a while I found that other WW members were using greek yogurt instead of mayo! Genius I thought...

Let me show you my version of 0 point Chicken Salad. This amount will make about 4-5 meals for me.



Our Weekend with Golf, Wine, and Menchies

Hey Friends! Happy Tuesday.

I hope your week is off to a great start! I'm recapping our weekend today! I normally recap our weekend on Monday but Sunday afternoon the weather was great so Ben and I enjoyed sitting on the back deck talking. He smoked a cigar and I enjoyed a glass of wine so yesterday I shared DIY Wellness with Simply Earth Oils. Make sure you check it out. The sleep spray is AWESOME.

Friday I went to yoga, did some housework, and picked up the kiddos.

Friday afternoon, Ella wasn't feeling great so she parked herself in my lap.

I shared earlier this month that I received ARC copies of Waiting for Willa and Nice and Easy  those are the only 2 books that I have completed this month and I have already talked about those so I thought I would share with y'all what I am currently reading during my quiet time each morning.

But anyway let me share with y'all a few FAVORITE outfits that have been on repeat lately. I will link as much as I can but some are older pieces.

During my quiet time, I read a devotional along with a personal development type book. Here is a stack of my all time FAVORITES


DIY Make Up with Simply Earth

*I received this product from Simply Earth for free but all opinions are my own. 

Once again, I am back to sing my praises about Simply Earth Essential Oils. I received my February box and was giddy with excitement because it was all about natural make up!


Our Weekend with the Daddy/Daughter Dance, a Goodbye, & Winterfest

Happy Monday Friends! Our weekend was fun but sad at the same time. Saturday morning my sister called to tell me that my sweet PawPaw went to be with Jesus. He shared Jesus with everyone he met and he finally got to meet him face to face Saturday morning. We are so sad and heartbroken. If you pray, please keep my family in your prayers. We have the visitation tonight and the funeral tomorrow. Please also keep my sweet MawMaw in your prayers. She is going to be so lost without him. They just celebrated their 68th wedding anniversary.

I hope you will grab our graphic and link up with us!

Shape it Up: Active Wear

I have shared with y'all a few times some of my FAVORITE work out gear but it has been on several post. I thought it would be nice to have all my FAVORITES in one post. It especially makes it easier when I need a new pair of leggings. 😉

My ALL TIME FAVORITE leggings to work out in are these 90 degree leggings from Amazon. I wear them every time I work out. I even have the capri length for the spring/summer/fall. It's hot in Georgia most of the year.

Simply Earth | January Box

*Simply Earth sponsored this post but all opinions are my own.
