Christmas 2016


Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! 
I haven't update this space in ages. Today I am organizing pictures and thought I would share some of our precious girls decorating the tree before Christmas. 
Christmas this year was by far my favorite. This age is just wonderful at Christmastime. Seeing the joy of the holidays through the eyes of my children is one of my favorite parts of being a mom. 
Enjoy some of my favorite tree decorating photos!

Friday Favorites!


Today I am doing some virtual organizing. Organizing hard drives and computer space as I gear up for a very busy Fall schedule, much like my Summer schedule. While I was perusing my picture folders I found 5 of my favorite days from our Summer. I am over here reminiscing on the wonderful times we had but wishing cooler weather would grace us soon. How did I end up being a cool weather girl? This humidity is killing me, y'all!

1. An impromptu photo session with these sweet girls cuddled on the bed one summer morning while I was "getting ready" for our day. 

2. Getting together with these ladies. I've known them all since middle school and have been besties ever since. Stef and I have been best buds since Kindergarten... Whoa... we are knocking on thats 25 years folks!

3. Disney World. Need I say more?

4. Sunflowers in Central New York with the cutest bunch of twins I've ever seen!

5. My precious little ladies turned 3 this Summer and I couldn't be more proud of how amazing they are or how incredibly kind they have become. 

Just some random favorites for your Friday since I rarely find myself blogging much these days. 

Happy Friday and Happy Fall, Y'all!

Tasty Tuesday|| Turkey Meatball soup


Happy Tuesday, y'all! Today I am sharing one of my go to meals. When I was on bedrest a sweet neighbor shared this recipe with me and we loved it.  I make up batches to eat now and others to freeze for tough days that either I just don't have time to do the chopping and prep that many delicious meals require or my guy has a business dinner and my goal is to keep it simple. 

Grocery List/Check your pantry for:
1 lb Ground Turkey 
1 Egg
½ Cup Bread Crumbs
2 T Olive Oil
1 Small onion
2 Carrots
2 Celery Stalks
½ tsp Marjoram 
Salt to taste
½ tsp Pepper
¼ Cup White Cooking Wine
6 Can Chicken Broth
2 Cups Cooked Penne Pasta


Cook Penne pasta according to package while preparing the meal. We like to use whole wheat pasta. 

Then in a mixing bowl mix egg, bread crumbs, and  turkey meat. Make meatballs about 1 inch in diameter.  

Cook in skillet with 1 tablespoon of oil.

Let them rest on a plate. 

Wash & chop veggies. 

Sauté veggies with remaining oil over low heat until tender. 
Add seasonings with about 2 mins remaining in skillet. 
NOTE: I used a skillet for the veggie portion during this documentation but I recommend using a small stock pot.
Add chicken broth and meatballs to veggies. Simmer for 15 mins. 

Drain pasta and dish ¼ cup of cooked pasta into bowl. Using a ladle, dish a couple scoop fulls over the bowl of pasta.
