Easy Weeknight Meals

 School officially starts back on Monday for our older two, which means tired hungry kids Monday through Friday! And we did way too much Doordash this summer, so I've been on the hunt for easy, semi healthy meals I know my kids and that Todd and I will all like. \

Chicken Tortellini Alfredo 

I am actually making this weekend, and I am planning on serving it with green beans and garlic bread. 


Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli 

This looks delicious! And I would probably just make jasmine rice with this one since it has your meat and veggies already in there.  



Street Corn Chicken 

I absolutely love street corn, so I am dying to try this recipe!! 


Baked Meatballs Parmesan 

I have been on a meatball kick lately, but I've been using chicken and turkey so this would be such a fun change!!

Swiss Dot Ruffle Maxi Dress

I have this dress in the short version and it's gorgeous so I have no doubt this one is going to be as well.  


Flowy Baby Doll Mini Dress

So cute now with sandals, and will be perfect with this cardigan and these knee high boots for fall. 


Loose Flowy Shift Dress

I have this dress in two other prints and it's definitely a favorite!  And I am loving this new print for fall! 


One Shoulder Boho Dress

Looks great now with sandals, and then toss on this jean jacket and these flats for fall. 




I love everything about this dress and I really think the elastic bust is super flattering. 



Casual Square Neck Midi Dress

So pretty now with sandals, and then I would pair it with this jean jacket and these flats for fall. 


V-Neck Ruffled Swing Dress

And last is this pretty little floral dress, which would transition perfect into fall with this cardigan and these faux leather flats

This and That

Todd and I are heading to Beaufort tomorrow for a little early anniversary weekend getaway.  Our actual anniversary is August 25th, but it's always bad timing with the kids starting school so we always try and celebrate early. 

That being said, I am so excited to stay at The Emerald!  It looks absolutely stunning online and this will be our first experience staying at a full self-service hotel. 





I have been in such a cooking rut lately and feel like I just keep cooking the same things over and over, but I made Todd and the kids favorite skinny spaghetti bake recipe yesterday so I wanted to share it because it's so easy and so good.  If you guys have any good dinner recipes please share them in the comments. 


Here are some of the looks I am planning to bring on our trip.  I have already shared these looks on my instastories, but I wanted to share them here as well since instastories only last 24 hours. 


The romper runs tts, and for sizing reference, I'm wearing it in a size 2. 



This dress runs big so size down.  For reference, I'm wearing an xs. 



This skirt set runs tts, and sizing reference, I'm wearing a small. 



This dress run tts for the most part, but maybe a touch big.  For sizing reference, I'm wearing a small. 



The quality on the swimsuit is SO good!!  It runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing a small. 




Best designer tank dupe I've ever tried on!  It runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing a small. 


And because I thought this was so good that I printed it out, I wanted to share it on here in case any of you could use this too.

Dress with Tie Belt

This dress is so cute and I just love the fun zebra print. 




This is my favorite brand of jeans and I am loving the ripped look of these!




I love love love a good sweater tee, and this one is perfection.



This dress is perfect for now with sandals, but will transition beautifully with a jean jacket and boots/booties for fall. 





I own this top in the lace version in white and now I really want the blue with the tiny polka dots. 



Carson has a pair of these in the mens and he says they are the most comfortable shoes he owns.  And I absolutely love the tan color and think they would look cute with dresses, jeans, and of course leggings. 



The Somerset Maxi Dress

This has to be one of the prettiest maxi dresses I've ever seen and the reviews are so good!  It also comes in nine different prints and I love them all.
