Happy Tuesday, everyone…welcome back to Moonlight & Mason Jars! I hope this finds everyone safe and warm, particularly if you’re battling the blizzard at the moment! Hopefully those of you in the northeast are all hunkered down with comfort food and a warm fire right about now. I’ll try to avoid mentioning the kind of weather we had here in Texas today… Anyway, who’s ready for Super Bowl Sunday? I am, I am! I’ve had fun the past couple of {Read More}

Welcome back to Moonlight & Mason Jars, y’all! I hope you all had a fabulous (and hopefully extended) weekend! The weather here in Texas has been absolutely gorgeous the past few days, but it sounds like we’ll be trading in our sunshine and spring-like temps for rain and cold later this week…boo. On the bright side, the Super Bowl is right around the corner, and if there was ever an excuse to throw a food-centric party, that’s it! Before we {Read More}

Happy New Year and welcome back to the Moonlight & Mason Jars Link Party…we’ve missed y’all! So how was everyone’s holiday season? I hope your 2015 is off to a fantastic start! We had a fun, relaxing Christmas with no major rushing around this year…which was blissful. My brother and his family were home for the holidays, so we were able to squeeze in some nice visits. It was great to have a break and to have the boys home {Read More}

Welcome to Moonlight & Mason Jars…we’re so happy that you could join us! Happy third week of December, everyone! Is Christmas really next week…already?! This week marks my boys’ last week of school, with pageants and parties and pajama day, but I’m secretly looking forward to Friday afternoon when vacation begins! I’ve been working hard this week to get posts scheduled out ahead of time so that I can take a few days off around Christmas. I’m mostly looking forward {Read More}

Welcome back to Moonlight & Mason Jars, friends! Is it just me, or is December flying by?! The next couple of weeks around here are filled with Christmas events at school by day and holiday parties by night, but I’m trying not to let all of the fun completely overwhelm me…like it does most years! This past weekend I was able to take my 7-year-old to see The Nutcracker for the first time, and that was the perfect chance to {Read More}

Happy December, everyone! So happy to have you back at Moonlight & Mason Jars! So how was your Thanksgiving? Wonderful, I hope! We had a very nice holiday, and I ended up taking the whole extended weekend off from blogging…in fact, that’s probably the longest break I’ve taken in the almost year and a half that I’ve been blogging! It was great to relax and recharge, though, and nice to spend uninterrupted and undistracted time with my family. We spent {Read More}

Welcome to Moonlight & Mason Jars Link Party, friends! So who’s ready for Thanksgiving??? Is it okay to admit that after all of the Thanksgiving recipes that I’ve been cooking for the blog over the past few weeks, I might be ready to eat a PB&J come Turkey Day… Seriously, though, if you didn’t have a chance to check out our Thanksgiving Menu Blog Hop last week, hop over now! A couple dozen of your favorite food bloggers collaborated to {Read More}

Welcome to Moonlight & Mason Jars, everyone…hope this finds you staying warm! So I’ve been hearing all about how some parts of the country are already experiencing freezing temperatures and snow…which made me feel like a big ol’ wimp today when I was shivering-to-the-point-of-teeth-chattering along with a classful of PreK-ers, teachers, and parents on a field trip to the farm. The temp was lingering in the 40s with really high winds, and these Texans are just not equipped for that {Read More}

Happy November, friends, and welcome to Moonlight & Mason Jars! So how was everyone’s Halloween? We had a fantastic one with our three little munchkins in their coordinated costumes. And who agrees that Halloween should fall on a Friday (or Saturday) every year?! It was so much more enjoyable not worrying about a late bedtime or a sugar crash, since the kids didn’t have school the next morning. As soon as Halloween was over, it was time to celebrate the {Read More}

Welcome to Moonlight & Mason Jars..so happy to have you joining us! Happy last week of October, friends! So who already has their jack-o-lanterns carved and their candy bowl at the ready? Not me (yet), but luckily I have a few more days to prepare! We did finally make it to the pumpkin patch last week, which was fun. And on top of Halloween, we’ve also got my hubby’s birthday coming up this week, which officially brings to a close {Read More}

Happy Tuesday, everyone! So happy to have you at Moonlight & Mason Jars! Hope this finds y’all having a great week! We celebrated our newly minted 5-year-old’s birthday this past weekend, and on the blog front, I’ve been swimming in apple recipes lately. I find it hard to believe we’re already a little over a week out from Halloween! Do your little ones have their costumes ready to go (or, if you don’t have little ones, are you dressing up)? {Read More}

Welcome back to the Moonlight & Mason Jars link party, friends! Hope you’re all enjoying your mid-Octobers! Hard to believe that Halloween is right around the corner (and did you see the awesome Halloween blog hop we participated in last week?!). Until then, however, we’ve been staying busy! Last week I had the privilege of attending field trips with both my 2nd grader and my Pre-K’er. This past weekend, we all headed back to our college alma mater for a {Read More}

Welcome to the Moonlight & Mason Jars Link Party, everyone! Hope you’re all having a lovely week! We’re in the midst of family birthday season at our house (all five of our birthdays fall within a two-month span!), so we took a little trip out of town this past weekend to celebrate. The plan was to enjoy the lazy river and water slides at the resort where we were staying, but it ended up being a bit too chilly when {Read More}

Welcome back to the Moonlight & Mason Jars Link Party, friends! I hope that everyone had a wonderful, relaxing Labor Day weekend! A long weekend is just what my family seemed to need to recuperate a bit from the first couple of weeks of school. We squeezed in plenty of college football, a birthday celebration, baking my first official pumpkin recipe of the season, and plenty of good ol’ downtime. In one word? Bliss! Moonlight & Mason Jars is a {Read More}

Well, we’re in week #2 of back-to-school and the boys seem to be hitting their strides.

Welcome to Moonlight & Mason Jars, y’all, and happy July! So who has fun plans for the 4th? We’ll probably hit our local Independence Day parade in the morning, take it easy mid-day, and then spend the afternoon/evening celebrating with family. Now if only I could narrow down what to bring to the shindig??? However you spend America’s birthday, I hope it’s a blast…and not just because of the fireworks.
