Video Home Tour-- Pre-Renovations

  Good morning everyone and HAPPY FRIDAY!! Today I want to welcome you into our home with a little video home tour. Devin and I are THRILLED to finally be taking the plunge into renovating our home and we wanted to do a little before/after of our renovation process. I won't lie, the thought of filming a video initially terrified me-- I got major stage fright! But after awhile I just figured "really, who cares?" It's an easier way to show you the house and for you to get to see "the real me" 😊.

Caprese Zoodle Salad with Pesto

 Good morning friends! Today I am sharing a recipe my sister and I whipped up while Dev and the kids were at the beach a couple weeks ago. Devin is super allergic to shrimp so we don't ever eat it when he's home, but when he goes out of town it's the first thing I make! This recipe is super healthy and delicious. Let me know if you make it! I'd love to hear what you think.

What's Up Wednesday

Good morning everyone! Apparently I misread my calendar this month and thought today was What's Up Wednesday, but it's actually next week. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Oh well, you get mine a week early I guess!

It doesn't feel like September is almost over to me. Due to Liam's birthday and our move, this month flew by so quickly. I feel like it has to be early September still, right? The calendar says otherwise 😊 Let's have a look at all the fun we had in the past month, shall we?

What We're Eating This Week- Oh my goodness, I have been on a roll with cooking at home and trying new recipes! Some of these recipes I found on other blogs/social media and some I have created myself. Stay tuned for some recipes like these Southwest Quinoa Bowls:

What I've Been Wearing Lately

 Hi there friends! I hope you had a nice weekend. We were able to get all moved out of our house and moved into our temporary home and are feeling settled. We had plans to have a small get together Sunday morning for Liam's birthday but on Friday night/Saturday morning Lily Grace was hit with a tummy bug. 😷 We didn't want to risk sharing our germs with all of Liam's baby friends and their siblings/parents so we decided to push it back a few weeks until everyone is feeling better.

This past month or so I have actually been getting out of the house and getting out of yoga pants/lounge clothes more and more. It helps that I have been subbing at my former school and we have had various meetings with our contractor/cabinet lady/appliance people etc. This means I have had to start putting together a few outfits again. I forgot how much I used to love getting dressed in "real clothes" in the morning! While I definitely love some good old jeans and a t-shirt, there is something about dressing up a little more that completely shifts my mindset. 

Anywho, here are some of the outfits I have put together lately. I know sometimes looking at other people's outfits sparks my creativity and I think "oh, I have something similar, I'm going to try that today!" Hopefully I am able to make your mornings a little easier this week as you get dressed! 😊

What We've Been Up To

 Good morning friends! Today we officially move out of our house for the next 4 months. It is bittersweet. We love our little home and will miss it, but are excited for this next adventure. When we move back in, our home may be unrecognizable... but in a good way! I will be very happy to not recognize my tiny old kitchen 😂

So since life has been crazy busy lately, I figured I'd do a roundup of what all we've been up to! Here are some pictures of our sweet kiddos to fill you in on what life has looked like for us lately:

Roasted Broccoli & Cauliflower with Lemon and Pine Nuts

Good morning friends! I have been on a big veggie kick lately, trying to get in as many various vitamins and nutrients that I can. One of our favorite veggies around here is broccoli. Both of my kiddos eat broccoli without complaint every time, so it's a staple around here! I am always looking for some new ways to mix it up and keep it interesting and this is a new way I tried over the weekend. I hope you enjoy!

Liam is ONE!

Our sweet boy is one year old today! One year ago today my water broke and we headed to the hospital, calm as can be, to welcome this sweet boy into the world. Liam came into the world cool as a cucumber and has continued to be that same way every day since then. He has the most easygoing, constantly happy personality and we are so lucky to get to be his family!

Not Just a Mom-- Skincare/Makeup Routine

Good morning friends! I hope you all had a great weekend spending time with your loved ones. Our weekend was a good mix of being busy/productive and also relaxing-- my favorite kind of weekend! 

Today is our next monthly installment of "Not Just a Mom" and we are talking about our skincare/makeup regimens. I LOVE reading these types of posts because I always get great recommendations from you all! So I will share what I do, but I really hope you will link up with us below and tell us what YOU do too! And if you don't have a whole post put together, maybe leave a comment below telling us a thing or two 😉

So let's start with skincare, shall we?

Fun and Unique Date Ideas with Date Architect

Good morning everyone and happy Friday! I hope you all had a good week. We had a taste of fall weather around here and I am HERE.FOR.IT! Give me all things apple/pumpkin/fall please! Today I wanted to talk to you about one of my new favorite companies that I think you'll love too: Date Architect.

Cucumber Tomato Corn Salad with Lemon Dressing

Hi there friends! This past weekend we had one of those situations where some of our veggies were on the last day of being good before they started to get questionable. Rather than eat them individually, I decided to chop them up and make a simple summer salad out of them. It was super easy, healthy, and tasty! A win by all measures. It's so simple I even feel a little ridiculous writing it down, but I know some of you out there are looking for easy and healthy too-- so why not??

Let's Look: Our School Pics

 Oh man I am SO excited to see some of yall's school pics today!! When I saw the theme for the day I chuckled to myself because I KNOW some good school pics from the 90's are about to be the best way to start the day!! I swung by my parents house over the weekend and snapped a few pics from elementary, middle and high school to share with you. I did not grab one from each year because I thought that would be a few too many to share, but grabbed a variety so you got the gist of how I looked as I grew-- awkward years included!

Let's get started:

Farmer Devin's Greenhouse

Good morning friends and happy Friday! Today I am sharing something that we recently put in our backyard but have some really high hopes for this fall and next spring: our greenhouse.

Kale and Arugula Salad with Pine Nuts

 Good morning friends! Here is another super healthy salad we whipped up one day this week. I used to be that girl who only liked salads if they were doused in Ranch dressing, but I have learned to love a simple lemon-olive oil dressing. This is so much healthier for you, so I'm hoping this new taste preference sticks!

Monthly Goals-- September

 Good morning friends and happy September!!! Does it feel like fall where you live? I must've jinxed us.. it felt fall-ish for a week or two here but then we jumped back up to 90+ degrees every day. This weekend looks like low to mid 80's again though-- and believe it or not, I'll consider that "fall-ish weather"!

Today I have my goals for the month of September to share. Thank you so much for reading/commenting on these posts because you help to keep me accountable! If somebody out there knows I've set a goal for myself, it makes me feel like I need to  actually keep up with it. Here are my goals for the month:

What I've Been Priming- August

Hey ladies! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Today's post is short and sweet because we spent the weekend in the mountains celebrating my dad's 66th birthday-- woohoo! Now we are back and in laundry/grocery/get ready for the week mode. This week is the first week back at my former school and I am subbing a few days as a floating teacher assistant to help anywhere I'm needed. It's going to be a busy but fun week! I hope all of you have a good week ahead of you as well.

I am linking up with Tanya on Tuesday for Prime Purchases but don't typically post on Tuesdays.. so here's a look at what I bought on Amazon in the month of August:

Books I Read in August

Good morning friends and happy Friday! Today I am sharing the books I read in the month of August-- and believe it or not I was able to squeeze in 4! Every single one of these was an audiobook this month and I think that's the only way I was able to get through so many. I listen while I put on my makeup for the day, while I do laundry, while I clean the kitchen after dinner, while I am out for my walks/runs, etc. Anytime I have a spare minute, I'm listening! Do any of you listen to audiobooks?? I love a good thriller while out for a run-- I swear I run faster! 

Anyway, every single one of these books was hit! If you're looking for something good to add to your list, maybe some of these will fit the bill.

My Favorite Breakfast-- With a Twist

 Good morning friends! About a year and a half ago I shared with you my favorite healthy breakfast idea. I still eat this breakfast probably 1-2 times a week, but mix it up a bit to keep it from getting boring. Here's one of the ways I like to change it:

What's Up Wednesday

 Good morning everyone! I know we all say this every month, but where did this month go?!? The month of August flew by! Our September is going to be even busier/crazier so I'm sure I'll be saying the same thing next month. 😂 Grab yourself a cup of coffee and come see what we've been up to!

What We're Eating: We are pretty healthy eaters around here and are usually trying to find some new ways to sneak some veggies in. These broiled sweet peppers were delicious and super easy!

Weekend Highlights

 Good morning everyone and happy Monday!! This weekend was a perfect blend of busy and relaxing. I can't wait to share with you all what we were up to!

Friday felt like fall in Charlotte! It was in the 70's and rainy all day, and I have to say, we were NOT complaining about it! We moved Lily Grace's art/Play-Doh table from the back patio to the front porch because it's covered and we sat out there and played all morning!

Friday, August 21, 2020

Backyard Camping!

 Good morning friends and happy Friday! Today I wanted to share a few pictures from one of our recent activities: camping in the backyard!

I have the fondest memories of camping in the backyard with my sisters and my dad. We would roast s'mores, tell spooky stories with flashlights under our chins, and listen to nature. Meanwhile mom would stay inside and get a good night's sleep-- which I appreciate SO much more now! 😀

While the kids were taking their afternoon nap, Devin set the tent up in the backyard. When they woke up, LG was so excited to see a tent popped up in the backyard, ready for camping! She wanted to put on her Pocahontas dress because she thought it looked like a teepee 😊

Honey Sriracha Salmon Salads

 Good morning friends! Okay have any of you been watching "Down to Earth" on Netflix? Well you may or may not know that I used to be fascinated by Blue Zones and the Mediterranean diet, but over time kind of fell off that wagon. Well, after watching Zac and Darin go to Sardinia and learn more about centenarians and the Blue Zones, I am back to my obsession with Blue Zones! 

Today I am sharing a salad I made for Devin and I last week that had the perfect blend of sweet and spicy. It also had some greens, some protein and some carbs all mixed into one meal. If you like sweet and spicy, give this one a try!

Back to School Clothes

 Good morning friends! Yesterday as I was doing my morning rounds of reading blogs, I saw on Shay's blog that she was talking about her kids school clothes and I thought "Holy cow I haven't bought LG's back to school clothes yet!!!" Luckily I still have a few weeks, but still! It's time to get on it!

Hiking Crowder's Mountain: The Pinnacle

 Good morning friends and happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! We had the most beautiful weather yesterday and were lucky to spend a majority of the day outside. No humidity, temperatures in the 70's most of the day, and sunny. It felt like a glimpse of fall!

So as you know, earlier last week we were in Wilmington, NC visiting my in-laws. We had to come back to Charlotte about mid-week because we had some appointments and things to take care of, but my in laws wanted to let Lily Grace stay behind a couple extra days with them so they could stay busy/not go crazy during quarantine. Since we had appointments and such anyway, we figured it would be easier to only have one kiddo while getting our stuff done. We had one morning off without any appointments/errands so we decided to head to one of our favorite hiking trails a little bit outside of Charlotte: Crowder's Mountain State Park. Here are some of our pictures from that day:

Life Lately

 Hi friends! Today I wanted to share a brief update with you about what we've been up to. As most of you know, we did a lot of local (but safe!) travel in the beginning of July. It worked wonders on improving our overall mood/sanity/mental health to have something different to do than the same old stuff at the same old house day in and day out. 

So then we came home and spent the next 2 weeks at our house, which was GREAT (it was like a whole new house again since we were refreshed!). That being said when my in laws said they were getting cabin fever and wanted us to come for a visit, we couldn't have jumped in the car faster 😀. It helps that they live near the beach and we knew we would have a bunch of different opportunities for "activities" with the kids. I am beyond grateful that Devin's job is flexible with his hours and understands that he may be sending e-mails at 5 am or 10 pm rather than typical 9-5. As long as he's getting it done, they don't really care when. 

So let's have a look at what we've been up to!

Refreshing Cucumber Smoothie

 Good morning friends! Today we are off to hike to one of our favorite trails and I wanted to start the day off right by being well nourished and prepared for our long trek. Which brings me to our recipe of the day, a super refreshing and hydrating smoothie.

Let's Look: My Desk

 Good morning friends! I hope you're all having a good start to your week. I'm still stuck in this rut of "what day is it?" and I cannot for the life of me keep up with it! Is it quarantine? Is it summer? Is it both? Not really sure, but a week ago I had a hair appointment and showed up on the wrong day because I didn't know what day it was. I had to do the walk of shame back to my car and come back to my appointment the following day 🙈😂 I mean what else can you do but laugh it off, right?

Anyway, today's topic for Let's Look is "my desk" and.... about that... we no longer have an office because we keep having kids and needing to use more bedrooms... so if I'm being completely honest, my "desk" is more like our dining room table. Anyone else? When we first moved into this house we had more rooms than we knew what to do with! Now, we are actively using every single square foot. 😀 So come and have a look at my "desk" 😉.

Target Home Decor Finds

Can you tell I've had home decor stuff on the brain lately?? We have some big changes happening in our house here pretty soon (more on that next week) and in the meantime I just keep Pinning and Pinning and Pinning all the pictures that feel cozy, warm and welcoming!

A couple weeks ago I posted some home decor items I found at and apparently you all loved it as much as I did! I decided to venture over to Target and see if they had anything that fit into that same Boho/Beachy/Casual vibe that was also inexpensive (comparatively). I'll be real up front-- some of the Target stuff is significantly more expensive than the same thing is at Walmart.. but then some of it is priced very similarly. Either way, the items were all adorable and I love that this look is "in" right now and so easy to find everywhere. I've seen it at HomeGoods, Marshall's, Amazon and World Market just to name a few!

Broiled Mini Peppers

Hi there! Today is a random recipe we came up with last week when we were having a "shoot, there's not much left in the fridge, what can we make?!" moment. Sometimes those kinda recipes don't work out at all, but sometimes they turn out to be great! This was one of the ones that ended up being delicious and we will gladly make again. Since you are deseeding the jalapeños, they shouldn't be too spicy. That being said, we didn't give the jalapeños to the kids.. we kept those for ourselves 😀

Books I Read in July

Good morning friends! Today I wanted to share with you the two books I read in the month of July. I was hoping to read a little more than I did while we were at the beach, but as I'm sure you all know, beaching with two young kids doesn't exactly lend itself to quietly reading! I was only able to squeeze 2 books in, but I loved them both and can't wait to share!
Be the Bridge-- This was the second book I picked up as I'm trying to learn more about how to incorporate anti-racism into my life. Last month I read White Fragility and while I learned a lot from it, I finished it feeling depressed and like "there's so much hurt, where do we go from here?". I loved Latasha's book because it addressed the hurt from racism and racist acts, but the overall theme was reconciliation and moving forward. It was almost as if Latasha provided a roadmap between where we were/are with racism and where we can get to, assuming we choose to treat all people as if they were truly made in God's image and show them the love the Bible teaches us to show. If you are looking for an anti-racism book with a Christian/Bible based theme, add this one to your list!!
The Librarian of Auschwitz-- One of ya'll recommended this book a few months back and I am so happy you did. I love your recommendations! This book was heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time. It is based off the true story of a young girl who was tasked with keeping the secret library for the children in the family block at Auschwitz. The pain and horrible conditions the prisoners had to go through is difficult to read, yet I think is important for us to know about in order to prevent something so awful from ever happening again in the future. Dita, the main character, and her family/friends go through some truly terrible situations yet somehow Dita stays strong. It amazes me that someone who goes through something so terrible can still think of other people and not just herself & her own survival. 

Those were my only two for the month because July turned out to be much busier than expected! What about you? Did you read anything good in July?? Or do you have anything else I should add to my list?

What I've Been Priming-- July

Good morning friends and happy Monday! I hope you all had a good weekend. We did a whole bunch of nothing over the weekend and it was great! We played a lot in the backyard, had a friend over for dinner on Saturday, and went for a long family walk on Sunday. It wasn't much, but it was exactly what we needed it to be. 😊

Monthly Goals-- August 2020

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you had a good week! Today is the last day of July and I wanted to share a peek at what goals I'm setting for myself for the month of August.

Thai Basil Chicken

Good morning friends! Today I wanted to share with you a recipe that Devin whipped up last week that was incredibly delicious and also super healthy. I love finding recipes that check both of those boxes 👍 
You can make this one more or less spicy depending on your preferences. 
Here's What You'll Need:
- 2 chicken breasts
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon coriander
- 1/4 teaspoon citrus salt 
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 shallot, minced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1/2 orange bell pepper, sliced
- 2 large carrots, shredded
- 1 cup fresh basil
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
- 1/4 cup peanuts, crushed
- 1 packet rice or vermicelli noodles

1. Cook noodles by following directions on package. Set aside.

2. Season chicken with ginger, coriander and citrus salt. Melt 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a skillet, and cook chicken until cooked through. Set aside chicken but keep warm (we put a plate over the top to keep it warm!) 

3. Reduce heat to medium and add garlic and shallot. Add bell peppers and carrots and sauté 3-4 minutes until they start to soften. Add soy sauce and hoisin sauce and a few dashes of coriander. Stir together and add the chicken and basil to the pan. Toss together until basil wilts. 

4. Plate your dish by first putting down the noodles as the base, then the basil chicken on top of the noodles, then add crushed peanuts on top.

What's Up Wednesday

Good morning friends and happy What's Up Wednesday! Another month bites the dust... and I have to say, our July was great, but I am looking forward to what August will *hopefully* bring-- a little less busy and a lot more downtime. Let's have a look at July, shall we?

Family Beach Trip Video Recap

Good morning everyone and happy Monday!! I am actually super pumped about it being a Monday and about starting a fresh week ahead. We've just had so much going on lately that a little taste of boring old "normal" life sounds like exactly what we need!

Walmart Home Decor Finds

Guys, if you had told me years ago that Walmart would be a place I would turn to for cute home decor items... I probably wouldn't have believed you. Practical home items? Absolutely. Affordable home items? Of course. But cute? I didn't think that was Walmart's thing. But apparently I was wrong! Lately on Pinterest I have been searching out all the California Casual/Boho home decor pictures. Every time I open my Pinterest browser I am inundated with pictures like this:

Green Piña Colada Smoothie

Good morning everyone! Today I am sharing another one of our favorite smoothie recipes, the green piña colada. Coconut water is often referred to as "nature's Gatorade" because it helps replenish electrolytes after a good workout without all the dyes and added sugars of Gatorade. It's my favorite drink for after a run, and is also why this smoothie is great post-workout!

Our Trip to Blowing Rock, NC-- Summer 2020

Good morning friends! As I write this it is a scorching 95 degrees in Charlotte and we are doing the tango of in the pool, in the AC, back in the pool, back in the AC. Anybody else doing the same thing?? 

Just this past weekend Devin had a camping trip with some friends so the kiddos and I headed to the mountains to cool off and spend time with my parents.

Motivation Monday-- Back on the Healthy Wagon After the Beach

Good morning and happy Monday! As most of you know we spent two weeks at the beach and then took a quick trip to the mountains last weekend. We had an amazing time, truly, but we are also happy to be back home and back into our usual routine. I'm sure most of you get that 😉. It's also time to get back on the wagon as far as healthy choices go. When we are on vacation we don't quite adopt an "anything goes" mentality, but we definitely relax a little and have a lot more ice cream and a few piña coladas/local beers. So it's time to get back on the self-care bandwagon!

Hilton Head Island Beach Trip

Good morning everyone and happy Friday! We are back from our annual trip to Hilton Head and I have to say, I think I was more grateful than ever before to have a chance to get away. The COVID numbers were rising on the island of Hilton Head (at home as well) so we pretty much stuck to the beach, the grocery store, and grabbed takeout from a few restaurants. Exactly what we do here, except with a beach to play at! Here's a look at our trip:

We drove down on Friday afternoon and arrived just before dinner. My parents and younger sister were already there so they had dinner waiting for us and we ate out by the beach. After dinner Lily Grace and my dad, "Pop Pop", went to go jump some waves.

Peanut Butter "Ice Cream" Smoothie

Smoothies are one of our standard breakfasts around here. They are a great way to start the day off right and get your greens in early. This is our all time favorite smoothie recipe because believe it or not, it tastes like our all time favorite ice cream (hence the name!). This is a much healthier version of our favorite sweet treat, so when we are trying to "be good" we will whip this up instead of grab our fave ice cream from the freezer. If you end up making this, let me know what you think!!

Blast from the Past-- Cinque Terre, Italy

Good morning friends! Today's post is another installment of "today in my mind I'm in _______". Devin and I were sitting on the beach yesterday as we are wrapping up our trip and were talking about our next big trip... Italy. We have plans to go in 2021, but honestly, who knows if that will end up happening?? It started a little trip down memory lane and I remembered that years ago I posted several posts from our trip to Italy but never got around to posting our 3 days in Cinque Terre.

Not Just a Mom-- Girl Time

Good morning friends and happy Monday! Today we have our next Not Just a Mom post and the theme for this month is "girl time". I love this theme because I think "girl time" is something that we all probably took for granted pre-kids and now that we are moms, we struggle to get enough "girl time" in. 
👆So true, and so important!

It is getting harder as I get older to find time to spend with my friends. Most of us have kids now, houses we need to take care of, more demanding jobs, etc. I know it is easy to put off that phone call, that glass of wine you were going to grab, etc. but the more you say "I'll just catch you next time", the less likely you are to get invited in the future. Keeping up with girlfriends takes effort, but it is 100% worth it! Here are a couple tips I have found that help me to still end up consistently spending time with friends:
- Schedule a LUNCH date-- I don't know about you and your friends, but with my girls if we schedule something at the end of the day, something inevitably comes up for at least one of us and that person bails. If we plan to meet earlier in the day, before the day gets hectic/crazy/we get tired, we are more likely to keep the scheduled date. Some of my favorite things to do with girlfriends is to go for a morning walk with our kiddos, take our kids to the pool together, go to a playground together, etc. My favorite activity for adults-only time is to schedule a Saturday or Sunday morning brunch with friends.
- Schedule a time to call friends-- We've all been there, you've been playing phone tag with a close friend but one of you is always busy when the phone rings and you just can't answer. My girlfriend who lives in Chicago always used to call on her way home from work, which just so happened to be when I was trying to cook dinner and needed to pay attention to what I was doing. We kept going back and forth on calls but always ended up missing each other. I suggest finding a time that works for both you and your friend, and schedule it just like you would any other date you wouldn't want to miss!
Low-Key Activities Can Be the Best Activities-- Sometimes you don't need to schedule anything in advance, and that's great! I can't tell you how many times I've sent out a mass text message to several girlfriends saying "hey, I know this is last minute but we are going to ______ if anybody wants to come!" and usually somebody ends up joining. That obviously doesn't work for everybody on a given day, but if you do it often enough it can work for everybody at some point.

It's so important to put the effort in to keeping up with your friendships. Hanging out with or talking to friends is something I always come away from feeling rejuvenated. 

Thanks so much for reading along today!! Be sure to link up below if you also wrote a post about girl time. I can't wait to see how you do "girl time"! Be sure to come back next month for "Back to School Freedom"... I guess we will have to see how that looks for all of us at this time next month??

Books I Read in the Month of June

Good morning everyone!! Hope you had a great week and that you have some fun plans in your future for the weekend. We are still soaking up some sun at the beach and I'll tell ya, we are going to have some trouble prying these kids off the beach on their last day. It turns out I have two beach bums for kids 😀
This month I was able to squeeze 3 books in. Let's have a look, shall we?
