Butternut Squash meets chicken soup in this Tuscan inspired dish. Comment or DM for the link ๐Ÿ”— to be sent your way. Hearty and nourishing for a cool (or cold ๐Ÿฅถ) day. . . . #ButternutSquashSoup #TuscanInspired #SoupSeason #HousefulofSoups #dinnerideas๐Ÿด

Enjoying coffee while working. A stormy day with water collecting on the roof. In some ways, my window view has a little bit of a Parisian rooftop vibe. One of these days I plan to visit Europe. The pull always gets stronger when watching shows set over there. I am currently working through Season 3 of Emily in Paris. So Paris is on my mind. Back to my multi faceted job with press releases, graphic creation, and social media posting to get done. How's your day going?

Winter has arrived in the deep south. This was the hard frost yesterday morning. The sun made it more bearable. Today it is raining off and on with temperatures in the low 40s. It'll be cold for Christmas and by New Years we may be back to highs approaching 70. Crazy weather in these parts. . . . #WinterinMississippi #CrazyWeather #MorningView #ViewoutmyWindow

Enjoyed a spectacular Christmas Parade in the nearby town of Picayune. We hung out with friends from the homeschool group. A great way to catch some Christmas spirit. I've made notes for things to do differently for next year. Like one of us getting there much earlier to stake out a good spot! . . . #ChristmasParade #Picayune #PicayuneMississippi #HolidaySpirit #MarchingBands

Back to work after Thanksgiving break. Decided to wear one of my "I feel pretty" dresses. For makeup, I pulled out this awesome pallette from @athrbeautyco. I adore the desert hues and how natural I can make it look. Along with the product being clean, I really appreciate the eco-friendly packaging. No mirror to hit the landfill. Because as much as I thought it was needed, it isn't. I never use a handheld mirror to apply my makeup. You'll find an affiliate link to this awesome company via the link in my bio. Now time to get all the work done. . . . #CleanBeauty #CleanMakeup #ATHRBeauty #BacktoWork

Sometimes you just want breakfast for dinner. With my husband and two of the boys on a hunting trip, I am keeping it simple for dinner time. We did soup and grilled cheese one night. Then I went for an omelet and a small bowl of grits. I โค๏ธ the grits from @traderjoes as they are so creamy when you follow the directions. Just a few more days with an almost empty house and no push for full dinners. . . . #Grits #WesternOmelette #BreakfastForDinner #SimpleDinners

The students finished the annual holiday concert with serious flair. Santa, playing his tuba, helped lead everyone in Santa's Second Line with a jazzed up version of Go Tell It On The Mountain. If you grew up in it near New Orleans, then you know what a second line is. If not, it is basically a jazz music parade. Umbrellas may be used. They have second lines for funerals and weddings. However you look at it, a Second Line is fun. They continued playing in the lobby for a while as people exited the auditorium. Some even danced their way out. What a great way to kick off the holiday season here in south Mississippi. . . . #SouthMississippi #ROARwiththeBEST #HolidayMusic #GoTellItOnTheMountain #JazzMusic #SecondLine

We may not get spectacular fall foliage like other parts of the United States. But we do have some here in south Mississippi. Spotted this little leaf when walking one of the dogs the other day. No long walk today as the rain and wind dropped the temperature significantly. Too cold for our southern gals. . . . #FallLeaf #RedLeaf #FallintheSouth #SouthMississippi #FallColors

I spent around 3 decades living up north, including almost a decade in Alaska. Today, I pulled out a blanket at work along with making a steady stream of HOT beverages in the attempt to stay warm. Even our dogs are showing signs of being cold. They go out to do their business and then crawl back into their crates inside the house. It is in the low 50s today. In all fairness, I know it is the high humidity (rain overnight) making it feel colder than it is. This weather combination chills you to the bone. I am also avoiding turning on the heat. (We have mini split units in our offices.) I'm thinking of soup and grilled cheese for dinner tonight. I will be pulling out my Alaska gear for Thursday as it will be COLD for the evening holiday event here. . . . #coldweatherโ„๏ธ #WinterintheSouth #PoplarvilleMS #SouthMississippi #BlanketLove

Veterans Day is just one call to remember those who have served our country. I am incredibly grateful to all who have served. This includes my father and many friends in my life. We had a very inspirational speaker at the Veterans breakfast on campus. He shared how the Air Force core values translates to students or truly everyone. Integrity first. Service before self. Excellence in all we do. Great values that I already try to live by. . . . #VeteransDay #VeteransDay2022 #AirForceCoreValues

Until we had our Mom's Night Out for the local homeschool group, I had not attended a party where all the food was served as Charcuterie boards. We ended up spreading some items (e.g. cookies) on their own boards. SO delicious and worth doing again. I may do this with a future family gathering. We enjoyed the food while chatting and playing a round of BUNCO. I also need more game nights in my life! . . . #HomeschoolMom #HomeschoolMomLife #CharcuterieBoards #CharcuterieBoardsofInstagram #SouthMississippi #MomsNightOut

Enjoyed the Banana Nut muffin I picked up on my drive home from Shreveport. Small coffee shop inside an antique "mall" in Florence, Mississippi. I stopped for coffee, but was tickled to see a gluten free muffin available. Warmed it up the next day and shared with my boys. . . . #glutenfreegal #GlutenFreeLiving #GlutenFreeMuffin #SupportLocalBusiness #GlutenfreeTravel #BananaNutMuffin

Make your own "flight" of wine at @weoliveshreveport was fabulous. One of the last activities I did on my hosted trip. From left to right: Dornfelder - NV Schlink Haus, Victoria, Nahe, Germany (a sweet red) Rose - 2021 "Tickle Me Pink", Lodi, CA Moscato - NV Doktor, Piemonte, Italy (Mango) All of them were lovely. Our server also introduced us to the Fiery Sweet Mesquite Honey from @lonestarbeeco that night. I left with a tall container of honey and one of the store's gluten free brownies that I look forward to eating tonight. So thankful for @visitshreveportbossier for being a fabulous host the last few days. So much to do here whether you come solo, with your significant other, or the whole family. Most of my sharing will be over at @LauraOinAK and on Day by Day in Our World. I suspect I will be back soon. . . . #WineTasting #WineTastings #HappyHourTime #TravelShreveport #LouisianaTravel #MidlifeWomenTravel #TravelTheSouth #ExploreOurWorld

I may have eaten a few too many of these little beauties from @bonneviemacarons at the #TBEXLafayette Taste of Lafayette evening at @warehouse535 last night. So many incredible flavors. This month's special tastes just like the sour patch candies my boys adore. Plus all #glutenfree flavors made this #glutenfreegal happy. Personally, I like the tart of the sour patch blue one and the 2 peanut butter ones (including the butterfinger one in the front.) Next time I am in Lafayette, I know where to get a macaron fix. . . . #TravelLafayette #Macaronstagram #MacaronLove #MacaronLover #TravelBlogLife

I have to worry about safety as so many places in the deep south do not "get" gluten free. 2. I often think about the cost and how I could make it for less at home. Yet, there are times when I can find something safe to eat and need to eat while away from home or my regular office. While working up in Hattiesburg a few weeks ago, I scoped out the options and decided the Fancy Nancy was calling my name. I adore a bit of fruit in chicken salad. And my sister Nancy had that nickname from one of our aunts. I brought my own glutenfree bread to make the scoop into a sandwich. And took a chance on their broccoli salad for the side. I am NOT a fan of things that are drowning in mayo. Neither their chicken salad or the broccoli salad had too much mayo. It was an excellent lunch. And I am now dreaming about a return visit. . . . #ChickenSaladChick #HattiesburgMS #GlutenFreeLiving #GlutenFreeEats #FancyNancy #EatingOutGlutenFree #SouthMississippi
