Brownie cookies

31 March 2024

I just really can't say how wonderful these cookies are and HOW EASY and how delish and how I want to bake them again just looking at them. They are so wonderful. I bet you could do a dusting of powdered sugar and they would be really great as well! 

100 Days of School

30 March 2024

Who knew this was a thing but Kate was super excited about looking like an old lady! And we got the whole outfit, wig, etc, etc and then she didn't really want to look like a full out old lady. So here's where we landed. 

Central Cheer Clinic

29 March 2024

The Central High cheer clinic is a HUGE hit for Kate! She did it last year and loved it so much! Emmy joined this year and was super indifferent about the entire thing. She went through with it but kind of just stood there. The most exciting thing to her was the juice they gave her after... at almost 7pm. :) 

Italian Sunday: Meatballs and Polenta

28 March 2024

OK.. this was amazing. Better than amazing. I love meatballs, Brian does not. He said he would try so I gave it my best go. And I think he's on the way to conversion to meatball liker. 

Snow Daze

27 March 2024

Ya'll... I have a love/hate relationship with snow around here. It doesn't melt and we can't drive but school closes even if it's clear and work is always there. It's a super stressful time and then I'm like stir crazy. But anyway, all the negative stuff out-- the kids loved it!! And had a blast. 

New Years 2024

26 March 2024

Another fun NYE with the Lar family! We love this tradition of spending the close of one year and start of another with Scott, Holly, Ethan and Harrison! This year was so fun. They came to visit us in our new home. Lots of memories made. 

Christmas at Home 🩷

25 March 2024

I absolutely loved our Christmas at home this year. It was so good and so perfect. The girls had a blast and it was so fun to watch them wake up in their own home on such a special morning. Making new memories! 

Christmas in NWA

24 March 2024

Another fun Christmas celebration in the books! We went to Wynne the weekend before Christmas for a couple days of family and fun. The girls love extra cousin time and we had a blast packing in lots of fun celebrations! 

Corduroy at AMFA

23 March 2024

New holiday tradition alert! Must see a show at the Museum of Fine Arts here in LR. Corduroy was so much fun with our favorite little friends. And Annie brought all the kiddos a stuffed Corduroy. Plus we had front row seats! 

Christmas in El Dorado

22 March 2024

We almost didn't make it to El Dorado for Christmas this year. Emmy woke up sick the day were were suppose to leave.. or maybe the day before. I don't remember anymore. We decided we weren't going to make it and were so sad. So last minute we woke up Sunday morning and decided to hit the road for a day trip. I'm so glad we did! We packed so much in one day and the girls loved every single minute. Allll the Christmas things are really the best. 

Melting Snowman Cookies

21 March 2024

Dying over these fun little cookies that I made with the girls. The yummiest little sugar cookie topped with icing (not melted enough!), pretzel sticks, marshmallows, and mini chips. We bagged these up and took one to each on of the girls little classmates. They were a hit! And we super easy :) 


Neighbor Christmas Gift

20 March 2024

Really loved our little neighbor gift this year. I had these adorable little tea towels made locally then paired it with homemade cinnamon rolls. Who doesn't love hot cinnamon rolls delivered at dinner time? Next year I'm going to work on the timing :) 


Cookies with Santa at the Gattins

19 March 2024

So fun going back through all these sweet Christmas memories! Second annual holiday cookie party at the Gattin house included a special visit from Santa this year! It was so much fun! And while Emmy refused to wear Christmas PJs, at least we got the right color down. 

Holly Dolly Bunco

18 March 2024

Speaking of decorating for Christmas early, I hosted November bunco but made it and early Christmas themed Holly Dolly bunco :) And it was so fun! Totally worth getting the house all ready early! 

Christmas Party at the Mansion

17 March 2024

Continuing with all things holiday things catch up! Got a couple snaps from the Governor's Christmas party. Love that Lindsay and I both went the route of recycled dresses from years past. Always fun to have a night out and see the beautiful decorations! 

Capitol Lighting 2023

16 March 2024

We went to the Capitol lighting and didn't get a single picture of the actual lights or fireworks! Another one of our fav things to do! This year we hit the Oyster Bar prior to the show. It was fun, per usual! 

Christmas tree shopping

15 March 2024

One of my favorite days of the year! I'm kicking myself because we take this picture every year and I did it from the wrong side this year! But they are still super cute and excited. First year we got smart and took straps! And that rack (or whatever it's called) was a deal maker when shopping for a new car for this ONE reason! 

Brian's 38th Birthday!

07 March 2024

We went to Benihana's for Brian's 38th birthday. The girls loved it so much and ask about going back all the time. Nothing like dinner AND a show! 

The Perfect Sidecar

06 March 2024

One of our favorites! Except when we swing into the Haywood Hotel in El Dorado. Don't order this. Just stick to the menu :) 

1.5 ounces pierre ferrand ambre cognac (or other)
1 ounce pierre ferrand dry curacao
3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon simple syrup 
garnish: 1 orange twist

Shake all the ingredients with ice, then strain into a chilled coup. Express the orange twist over the drink, then gently rub it around the rim of the glass and place it into the drink! Enjoy!
