Do You Prime?

What did we ever do before Amazon Prime? I'm sure you're aware that Monday and Tuesday are Prime Days at Amazon -- SO many good deals to score! Here's my one tip for shopping this sale: Be focused on what you're looking for. Otherwise, you'll end up going down a rabbit hole and trust me - you can't get that time (or that money!) back! I will be scoping out a handful of things, but today I wanted to share a few of my favorite Amazon purchases … [Read more...]

Sandy’s Summer Corn Salad

Hi there, friends! I had an interesting week last week and didn't accomplish everything I'd hoped, but such is life, right? We're headed into another week of Summer Camp at Legacy, so I'm getting organized for that and trying to rest up a bit today. :) I did want to pop in and share a new summer recipe that we're obsessed with these days -- courtesy of my friend Sandy! She served this over the 4th of July and we loved the crisp freshness and … [Read more...]

What I Learned This Month: June

Hi friends! I'm enjoying some out-of-town time with the hubs and some dear friends this week, celebrating the 4th. It's HOT HOT HOT, but we're immersing ourselves in a spring-fed "creek"... if you follow me on Instagram you know of what I speak! I wasn't sure I'd be able to pull this post together, as I wasn't particularly intentional about taking note of things I learned last month. But after mulling it over, some things swam to the … [Read more...]

Fourth of July Favorites

Greetings, friends, and Happy Independence Week! I am headed out of town for the rest of the week and can't wait to put my feet in some COLD water and enjoy a fun time with our friends. It's been a hot minute since I've shared any recipes here, but I thought I'd collect my 4th of July favorites to share with you today! A fave fresh little dessert. The 4th of July cookie bites are SO YUMMY! Super easy to make and just the right mix of … [Read more...]

Five on Friday

Happy Friday, everyone! We had such a great week at Legacy summer camp -- lots of great crafts and activities built around our favorite books. We'll do this theme again, as everyone (kids and teachers!) seemed to LOVE it! We're keeping it light for Five on Friday this week -- just some fun things that have come on my radar in the past week! I'm in need of a new travel cosmetics case, now that I'm at the age of numerous skin care/hair … [Read more...]

Summer Read: The Thirteenth Tale

Hi there, friends! Legacy summer camp is in full swing this week and we are all having SO much fun! I sure do love these kiddos and it's a treat to spend a little time with them this summer. Today I wanted to share a few thoughts about The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. It's been around for a while (published in 2007) but this was my book club's May pick, so it made the cut for summer reading! I began this in early May, and was … [Read more...]

Five on Friday

Happy First (Official) Day of Summer! Seems only appropriate that it would fall on a Friday, right? I see lots of late night swimming, grilling, and lightning bug catching for many of you this evening. :) I, personally, am celebrating that I managed to get three posts up this week! Let's hope it's a trend... Today I'm resurrecting the Five on Friday posts - a random collection of things that have caught my attention over the past week. … [Read more...]

This Summer’s Book Stack

Happy Thursday, friends! Since I'm already a third of the way through my summer "break", I thought I'd share my book stack for the season. I always look forward to stretches of time to immerse myself in a good book and summer is the best candidate for such. A few weeks ago I had the grandiose notion that I would read a book a week, and while I may still get there, it's not looking too good at this point! A few longer road trips in the … [Read more...]

Hello, Summer!

Once again, I didn't mean to be gone so long! The end of the school year got totally away from me, which led to me being brain-dead for a couple of weeks. Then my site needed some server updates so here we are -- halfway through June and a month into my summer "break." So far, it feels a little like a break, but I'm still working every day. The administrative part of running the school and Board of Directors is never ending, actually. … [Read more...]

Currently…

Hi friends, I'm having a hard time believing Easter is upon us! I don't know where the time goes, but I take comfort in knowing I'm not the only one. :) I had a nice productive/super busy Spring Break last week and then traveled to Texas for a memorial service. The bonus, of course, was spending some unexpected time with my parents, siblings, and niece/nephews. But I have to confess I am DRAGGING this week. I happen to have a weekend at … [Read more...]
