Currently – April 2018

I’m linking up with Anne at In Residence and Jessica from I am Teacher Fit for this month’s Currently link up!  I always enjoy seeing how other folks answer the same prompts!  Here we go! I am currently… Showering:  business on my town’s brand new Culver’s!  Frozen custard, y’all!  Mmmmmmmm.  It’s a problem, really. Cultivating:  deeper friendships.  This is something God laid on my heart a while back, and I’ve enjoyed being intentional about scheduling coffee dates, frozen custard meetups,…

Speaking of Spring

Speaking of Spring

Let’s talk about spring!  My friends over at The Blended Blog have posed some fun springtime questions, so I decided to join in the fun and post my responses! 1. What 3 colors remind you most of spring?  Green, yellow, and blue. 2. What is the first thing you’d add to your wardrobe in spring?  Loafers  and slip-on shoes. 3. What is the first wardrobe item you ditch in spring?  Socks.  But I’ll miss them in a few weeks! 4….

Springtime Adventure List!

Springtime Adventure List!

Whoop whoop!  After being out of blog land for several weeks (I’m looking at you, Winter Olympics, post-Olympics sleep deprivation, and back spasms), it’s time to plug back in!  Let’s kick the new season off with a Springtime Adventure List!  Here are my fun “to-do” items for Spring 2018.   •Go camping at least two times.  We’re heading out soon to camp in Thomasville, Georgia, one of my most favorite places!.  From there we’ll make a day trip to Providence…

Random Thoughts on a Rainy Friday

Random Thoughts on a Rainy Friday

We’re having a rainy Friday here today.  Temps are nice.  A cool 62 degrees last I looked.  (Yes, that’s cool for Coastal Georgia!)  It’s been a quiet day.  A pajama day, if you’d like to know.  It’s been a good day for mulling things over, you know? Rainy days always make me miss Europe.  And since I just finished a great audio book set on a Scottish island, I’m especially missing it!  The book is The Cafe by the Sea…

Voilà! February 2018

Welcome to OutAndBack!  Today I’m linking up with Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy where we’re all sharing things that SO working for us right now! One big game changer for us right now is Prep Dish!    Prep Dish is a subscription-based service that provides me with healthy, delicious meal plans, the grocery lists to go with them, and prep instructions.  This magical combination saves me a LOT of money and LOT of time!  I posted a review yesterday and explained…

Prep Dish: A Review

Prep Dish: A Review

Do I love Prep Dish?  Yes.  Yes, I do.  I’ve talked about it here briefly, but I want to give you the whole scoop on it today. I love to cook, y’all!  LOVE to cook!  What I do NOT like to do is figure out WHAT to cook.  Can I get an amen?  Or is it just me?  AND I’m a messy cook, so I destroy the kitchen every time I cook…and I cook a lot. And then, PREP DISH!!!…

Winter Adventures 2018

Winter Adventures 2018

If you’re a regular here at Out and Back you’ll know that I’ve been posting a list of goals/adventures each season.  I’ve had SO much fun doing this!  You MIGHT have also noticed that I didn’t post a Winter List last month.  I have wrestled and wrestled with this one; my brain has adamantly fought against making a list this season.  Winter has been and is going to be just a little different than other seasons.  Some pretty big things…

Currently – January 2018

Anne at In Residence is sharing today what she’s CURRENTLY starting, hoping, scheduling, reading, and playing.  Me?  Here are MY answers! Starting:  exercising.  I’m really going to do it this time.  Really.  *sigh* Hoping:  for snow!  Yes, I live near Savannah, Georgia, and yes, you read that right!  We are having the oddest weather situation today!  Temperatures are super low for this area (the predicted high is only 33 degrees Fahrenheit), and rain is moving in from the Atlantic.  Predictions…

Advent

Advent

  Advent officially begins tomorrow, Sunday, December 3, 2017!  I love this time of year.  For me it’s a special time of focusing on Jesus, His birth, and His promised return. I’m headed up to the attic to start bringing down Christmas decorations this morning, and the first thing I’ll be setting up is our Advent wreath.  I wrote about it last year, and I’d like to share that post with you again today.  If you’ve never celebrated Advent, or…

Cinnamon Star Bread #bakealong

Cinnamon Star Bread #bakealong

One of my goals for this autumn was to do two of the King Arthur Flour bakealongs. Each month they post a recipe and invite folks to bake the recipe and then post a picture on social media. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, and I finally got in the kitchen and did it! The recipe for November was Cinnamon Star Bread, and it looked WAY too complicated! My mom taught me that I can cook anything…
