Welcome to Moonlight & Mason Jars, friends! Well, the cat’s out of the bag. In one of my blog posts last week, I announced that we’re about to put our house on the market…eeek! May is already jam-packed with all of the activities that come with the end of the school year, so why not add to the crazy, right? Seriously, though, we’re staying in Austin…just wanting to work our way to a different part of town that would be {Read More}

Welcome to the link party, everyone! Hope this finds you all having a fabulous week! How was Mother’s Day for all the mamas out there? Hopefully you were pampered and spoiled all weekend long. My greatest gift was being allowed (AKA, the hubby physically left the house with the children) to sleep in on Sunday morning…and I haven’t felt that rested in a long time! The night before, we went out to eat Mexican food (my choice…imagine that!) after church. {Read More}

Welcome to Moonlight & Mason Jars, friends! How has Cinco de Mayo been treating y’all? I have to admit that I love any holiday giving me free reign to enjoy (and blog about) fine delicacies such as queso, tacos, and margaritas — ha. 😉 On a more reverent and less fiesta-related note, we had a very special past weekend celebrating my eldest son’s First Holy Communion. But HOW IS HE ABOUT TO BE A THIRD GRADER??? And my middle will {Read More}

Welcome to the link party, y’all!Hope this finds you all having a wonderful end-o’-April! This week has been a little less hectic around here (so far) than last week, but still jam-packed with fun. On Monday, my Pre-K’er had a Rainbow Fish play at school, so I got him all dressed up in his costume and drove to school that morning to watch the play…only to discover that the play is actually on Wednesday. #momfail  Oh well…he actually wasn’t traumatized {Read More}

Welcome back to Moonlight & Mason Jars, friends!Is it just me, or is April zooming on by?!

Welcome to Moonlight & Mason Jars, everyone…so happy that you could join us!Happy Easter season, friends! Spring is in full swing here, so this past week we squeezed in a family photo session as well as the annual bluebonnet pics that I always take of the kids.

Welcome to Moonlight & Mason Jars, friends…so happy to have you here!Happy St. Patrick’s Day! And, at least in our neck of the woods, happy Spring Break! No big plans for us this week…our little family is hanging out close to home. We had a memorable Sunday at the ballpark to kick off the break, and today, the kids head off to “Grandparent Camp” for a couple of days.

Welcome back to Moonlight & Mason Jars, everyone!So who’s still adjusting to the time change {raises hand}? This spring forward thing always makes for a rough week, but I guess it’s worth the trade-off of daylight into the evening hours. On the plus side, we’ve got Spring Break on the horizon next week with no big plans…it should be nice to relax, hang out, and do a few fun things close to home. Are any of y’all doing something fun {Read More}

Welcome back to Moonlight & Mason Jars…so happy to have each of you join us!Happy March, y’all! I feel like I start off every link party by talking about the weather, but ugh…Texas is still being Texas, meaning it’s having a hard time deciding whether it wants to hold on to winter or jump ahead to spring. Take tomorrow, for example…it’s supposed to top 70° during the day and then plunge below freezing with a chance of snow in the {Read More}

Welcome to this week’s rendition of Moonlight & Mason Jars, y’all! Hope this finds you warm! Texas is in the midst of a little cold snap right now…relatively speaking, of course, to those of you in the much colder northern states. 😉 However, the threat of ice was enough to warrant a two-hour school delay this morning, and I’m not one to complain about the opportunity to sleep in an extra hour on a weekday. In other news, Lent is {Read More}

Welcome back to Moonlight & Mason Jars, friends…so happy to have you join us! So how was your Valentine’s Day? Ours was nice aside from the fact that I woke up on V-Day with massive congestion and absolutely no voice. Is it spring yet??? But the highlight of last week was definitely the toddler child’s first set of pigtails. I have to say…these girly milestones are kinda’ fun after two boys. 😉 Oh, and Happy Fat Tuesday!

Welcome to Moonlight & Mason Jars, everyone…so happy to have you here! How is it already almost Valentine’s Day?! Another week bites the dust, I suppose. But on the plus side, the past week brought fun with the kiddos, delicious treats, and even a Five Heart Home recipe featured in a real, live newspaper! In such a virtual world, it’s fun to occasionally see my work in print. Tonight, the hubby and I are going out to eat for an {Read More}

Happy February, y’all…welcome back to Moonlight & Mason Jars! Well, it was just a matter of time, but the winter yuck finally hit our household. Fortunately, everyone is recovered at this point and we’ve avoided the flu altogether so far (KNOCK ON WOOD). How have y’all been faring? Hopefully staying well and staying warm! I’ve been thinking about those of you in the blizzard zone…BRRRRR. Moonlight & Mason Jars is a weekly party where bloggers are invited to link up {Read More}

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 {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}

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.

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 {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 {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}
