5 for the Road: meal plan

Hey yall! Are you enjoying this little series? It is funny….I’ll be driving along in my car and think….”That is a great thing to share on Friday 5 for the road…” Hope you are finding some of these little tid-bits useful:) If you have any to share…please let me know and I will pass them on!


I recently shared this pic on Facebook and folks loved the idea of it. Every Sunday I post our meals for the week. I love this for a few reasons….one, no one is asking me what we are eating…two, it takes one thing off my mind during the work week when things get crazy….and three, I know what to put on my grocery list—cutting down my time in the store. Win, win, win. Here is a post I did last year about some tips to getting dinner on the table….Get yourself a chalkboard…and get planning :)

I love the CleanFonts App. It makes my phone text so much more enjoyable:) As odd as that sounds….it is free and on both Google play and Itunes.


Locals…there is the cutest shop on Frankfort that my new friend/client Cindi told me about. I have no clue what rock I have been living under….but now I know. Urban Farmhouse LLC on Frankfort. Super cute stuff!!


Today I turn 42. That is all I have to say about that;) Honestly…I’m not all that into birthdays….it is not that I don’t like them…I am just kind of indifferent. I will however make it my job to stop in Gigi’s cupcakes to get me some of that goodness;)


Since it is my bday….I thought I would give you all a gift. You can sign up all week to win Pioneer Woman’s latest cookbook that is coming out in Oct. along with a 5 qt cast iron Dutch Oven. You’re welcome;) Pass it on mkay?!?! (Email subscribers, you can enter on the blog or on my Facebook page…look for the Giveaway Tab)

3 ingredient Crusty Bread Recipe

This past weekend I posted a pic of some bread that I had just finished baking. It was so stupid crazy easy that I have to share. Your family and friends will be in awe of your wicked bread master skill....for reals... After trying a few other bread recipes I really searched high and low for one that would produce a nice light and airy bread very similar to a good sourdough bread. The recipes that I had tried in the past have come out a bit dense..like a sandwich bread. And really what I … [Read More...]


DIY Printer Cover

  This is a sponsored post. The kind folks at True Value have asked me to share a fun back to school project with you. I have been compensated for my time and efforts. Good Monday friends!

We had a great weekend here...chillin and tidying up the house a bit. Sunday I made some homemade bread....I have never had good luck with … [Read More...]


5 for the road: conehead

Ms. Stella has a real strong affection for area rugs….as in…”hey I’m pretty sure mom is cool with me chewing on this since it is on the floor all the time….” (I mean, she’s got a point) She has chewed the corners of two rugs…but I think I found a deterrent that seems to be working….flag football cones. I bought these on Cintz Marker Cones (Set of 10), 9-Inch, Orange on Amazon and whenever I leave for a longer period of time I line them around the perimeter (we do this at night time too.) She has … [Read More...]

There is a treasure trove of … [Read More...]


things you may not know about me

I am a middle child. And the only girl. I broke both of my wrist at the same time when I was in 6th grade. Gymnastics. Uneven bars. Nuff said. My hair was short for the first 15 years of my life. I have only been in love once…and I married him. I was afraid of dogs as a child…until my dad brought home a golden retriever puppy from a business trip.We named her Muffin (cause preppy was all the rage:) I lived down the street from Aileen Quinn (the original Annie) Legend has it that … [Read More...]


Farmhouse Dining Table with Extensions

I told you all last week about the table situation in our dining area. We were able to bring home our new handcrafted table late last week and we are completely loving it! It fits the space so much better than the other table. We got it locally from a woodworker in Taylorsville, Kentucky. I found him at a local peddler's mall and took his business card. If you are local….you can find them on the web at Hahn Country Woodworks . He was able to build a table exactly to our specifications. We are … [Read More...]


French Toast Sticks

sigh….summer feels like it is coming to a close…I suppose getting back to a routine is good…but I really could use a couple more weeks…I often wonder what it will feel like when my kids are off at college in a few years. Will Fall feel the same when I don’t have the hustle of back to school forms and shopping….it will be weird for sure. This time of year…around my birthday…was always back to school shopping. My mom would take us out to get a new Eagle’s Eye sweater…some uniform socks and shoes…a … [Read More...]
