High Five For Friday


Welcome to the weekly High Five For Friday link-up hosted by Tif @ Bright On A Budget, Katie @ Cup of TeaBecky @ BYBMG   and myself. We're glad you're here! High Five for Friday is where we come together to share five highlights or five favorite things from the past week each Friday.

1) Raylan attended Open house for School. At first he was overwhelmed, but then he ended up enjoying himself. He was ok once he got warmed up to everyone and got to see his classroom. He says he is excited to go now. He starts Monday. I really hope he loves it and stays excited to go. Pray for this momma. I know I will be a total mess.


2) Our church had a cookout and waterslides on Saturday. It was so much fun! I always enjoy being around my church family and all of the fun events that they have.

3) Raylan got to watch his daddy race some over the weekend. Now that he is old enough, he loves to try to help Justin. He says he is a race car guy and part of the pit crew. I love watching Raylan cheer his daddy on.

4) I am officially on the Substitute Teaching list now. I'm excited and nervous to be back working. Many changes are coming mine and Raylan's way with him starting school and me working part-time, but I know if I stayed home while he's in school I would be bored out of my mind.

5) Raylan and I found some of the cutest Fall d├ęcor at the Family Dollar and Dollar Tree. I can't wait to start decorating! Is it too early to decorate for Fall? Asking for a friend lol

S'mores Popcorn


Y'all I love S'mores! Like I really really love s'mores. My husband and my closest friends can attest to this. My favorite thing to do during Summer and Fall nights is sit around a fire roasting marshmallows and making S'mores. They really are my favorite sweet indulgence. My husband doesn't care much for them, so I often make them in the microwave as a small snack for myself. However, a person can get burnt out on eating the same things over and over again. So, I like to switch things up a bit to keep things from getting boring. I present to you S'mores Popcorn!

What you will need:
1 bag of your favorite kind of Popcorn Popped
1 Hersey bar ( I melt 6 pieces in the microwave to drizzle over the popcorn and leave the other 6 pieces whole to place in the mixture)
Mini Marshmallows
Honey Graham Crackers broken up into several small pieces.

Add popcorn, mini marshmallows, graham crackers and whole pieces of candy first. Then at last drizzle chocolate over entire mixture.






It's the perfect combination of a sweet and salty snack. It really is such a delightful and easy treat to make. It's the perfect party mix. This snack will be great for any occasion or just to munch on at home. S'mores or Movie Nights will never be boring again!

Cheerful Summer Look








I love styling my look to match the seasons! When I think of Summer, I am reminded of bright cheerful colors. Mostly colors that remind me of the beach, so hot pinks, blues and greens come to mind. Bright colors always cheer me up, so whenever I'm having a bad day I like to get myself dressed up in bright bold colors. Lately I have been down and out because my baby will be starting school next week. I know all you momma's feel me when I say it's very hard to let go of your baby. I'm so excited to see all that he will learn and do, but my heart is breaking at the same time because my baby is not so little anymore. It's just bittersweet. Anyway, this outfit is the perfect pick me up look and it's one that I feel like I can be productive in and get things accomplished.  Do you have an outfit like that? No use in wallowing in self pity, get yourself dressed and take on the day. I'm a firm believer that a good outfit can change your mood completely and cheer you up. Throw in some colorful accessories too and have yourself a great day! So here is to many more cheerful outfits before Summer ends.

High Five For Friday



Welcome to the weekly High Five For Friday link-up hosted by Tif @ Bright On A Budget, Katie @ Cup of TeaBecky @ BYBMG   and myself. We're glad you're here! High Five for Friday is where we come together to share five highlights or five favorite things from the past week each Friday.

1) Sunday was such a great and relaxing day for my little family. After church, Justin took Raylan and I out to dinner and then for ice cream at our favorite local ice cream shop. Then we swam the rest of the evening and got caught up on our Netflix shows. I love days like that! They rarely happen so when they do I take full advantage of them. 

2) This has been a fun week for giveaways. I won two Facebook giveaways. I was so excited and shocked because I Very rarely ever win anything. 

3) I scored a letter board at Family Dollar for only $8. I've been wanting one for a long time. I love finding a great deal. Now I can decorate the house with some adorable sayings. 

4) Some church friends gave me some pumpkin spice coffee, latte and cappuccino k-cups because they know my love for all things pumpkin spice. I'm getting myself ready for Fall! I can't wait!

5) Raylan got the most adorable hair cut ever this week. Now he is almost ready for school to start. I still can't believe my baby is old enough for preschool. Where does the time go?

5 Back-To-School Bible Verses


Seriously, how is it August already? I'm definitely not ready for August because that means my baby will be starting school this year. This will be his first year of school and with that I have so many mixed emotions. It really does break this momma's heart, but at the same time I'm excited for him. I'm excited to watch him learn, make new friends and hopefully enjoy school.  I just worry though like all moms do.

I know all moms are probably experiencing some anxiety right about now about their babies starting back-to-school. School starts this week in several counties around me, and Raylan will be starting on the 20th. It's just all too soon! Anyway, God does not want us to be fearful or anxious about anything. He is with us,  for us and will protect us. This also means that God is always with our children at all times and will protect them and keep them in the safety of his arms. We just need to Trust God! So try not to worry, and when you do please remember these 5 Back-To-School Bible Verses. These verses will bring comfort to the parents and bring reassurance to the child. These verses will also remind children that they can do anything as long as they have God on their side. 

Have a great and safe school year everyone! God Bless You!

August Party Edition: TBB Asks


How is it August Already? Summer has really flown by so fast. I'm not ready for Summer to be over  because it means Raylan will be starting school near the end of this month.  My heart isn't ready for my baby to start school just yet, but I know he has to. Where does the time go? Anyway, it's the start of a new month and that means I'm linking up with my friends from The Blended Blog to bring you this month's edition of TBB Asks August-Party Edition. Let's get right to it...

1) Favorite Birthday Party as a Child? We always had our birthday parties at home but I would say my favorite party was when I was in 5th or 6th grade and a few of my close friends were allowed to come and sleepover. 

2) Do you like to entertain? Yes, I love to entertain! Just ask any of my friends and they would tell you that when they visit my home, I have meals planned out and things for us to do whether it be crafts or movies.  I also love planning parties. I would love to be a party planner. 

3) What kind of parties are your favorite? Halloween and Christmas Parties are my favorite! You can really get creative with those and do different things than what you can with traditional birthday parties.

4) Big or Small Parties? Small, much more simple and definitely less expensive. 

5) Favorite thing to do at parties? Eat!

6) Party Food Favorites? A variety of finger foods. I love fruits, veggies, cheese ball, dips, little smokies and anything of that nature. 

7) Favorite Flavor of Birthday Cake? Vanilla and Strawberry 

8) Balloons? Yes or No? Not really! They are too much work!

9) Best Party Song? Party in the USA

10) Do you like to dance? Yes, even though I'm not very good at it. But as long as I'm having fun that's all that matters!

What are your favorite kind of Parties?

1) Justin and I finally were able to sneak in a date day over the weekend. It had been way too long since we had had a date with Justin and his dad being sick over the Summer. We definitely need to make more time for that. Date Days and Nights are always so wonderful aren't they?

2) We celebrated my dad's 59th Birthday this week. He also received his power wheelchair this week which was the perfect birthday present. It's so nice to see my dad be able to go outside and enjoy fresh air without falling.

3) This has been such a rainy week. It literally has rained every single day! So needless to say, I've gotten caught up on a lot of reading and housework.

4) With the rainy weather, it has been cool and has felt just like Fall. So I've been burning my Fall scented candles and getting so excited for all things Fall. I've been pinning away on Pinterest.  I just can't wait! It's my favorite time of year. 

5) Our pumpkin plants are really growing good from all of this rain. I really hope they continue to grow so Raylan can have some pumpkins for Fall. It would be nice to have our own little pumpkin patch.
