Jackson Family Updates




Hey hey!! I just wanted to say hey, and just keep you all updated with how my family is holding up! We have been doing all good, but we have been getting a little bored and cooped up!!! Please let me know how you all are holding up!



So my family consists of my Mom, my Dad, my little sister Clara, my dog Maddie, my dog Sam, my kitty cat Charles, and me!! It sounds like a lot (just typing all of our names down felt like it took a while), but it really isn't to much. It can be a little chaotic, but it helps things seem more interesting in these times! 

During these quarantine times, we have been playing LOTS of badminton, baseball , volleyball, basketball, and jumping on the trampoline!! Our dogs (and cat) have been love love LOVING all of the attention! I have made a promise to my self to brush them everyday and give them a bath every other week! Over the break, I have had to re-read all of my books. Hahaha, some of these books I have read over ten times! #nevergetsold Butttt you do kind of get tired of it when you know the exact words off of the page! I have made myself a schedule, but it is SOOOO hard for me to make myself get up! I have ended up laying in bed reading for almost an hour!! I am trying to get more committed to my schedule, but it will be easier once my actual online schooling starts (our schools campus is closed for the rest of the year)!


Another thing we have been doing is potting some plants and LOTS of yard work. I don't know about ya'll but I DO NOT like yard work one bit. We have been documenting some of our plants we potted, and we have also planted some jalapeno peppers, little bing tomatoes (normally we get tiny tim tomatoes, but we decided to try something new), and we planted some Cherokee purple tomatoes! 

So that is pretty much what we have been up to, it has been enough to keep us all occupied, but we will see how much longer it lasts until we are bored out of our minds! ;) I hope each and every one of you is safe and remains safe! Please let me know how you are doing and what you all have been doing during this break! Bye!

PS: This verse has been very soothing and is very fitting during these times!
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” ~ Philippians 4: 8 


Love Abby!!

Let’s Look - Coffee Area!

Hey there! Happy Wednesday!! I am so excited that it is the first Let’s Look of the year! Today we are taking a look into my coffee area!! Linking up with Shay and Erika !  To be honest, I don't drink coffee on a daily basis! Don't get me wrong, I love coffee, and I would drink it every day, but I just drink tea instead! I love hot tea a tiny bit more than coffee! So yeah, I love coffee, but I don't need it every day. Before we get into it, check out my posts from earlier this week! Monday I shared a Christmas 2020 Recap , and Tuesday I shared my Makeup Haul ! Let’s get into it! This is one coffee maker! We have the Keurig, and the water Hamilton Beach water boiler! We got out Keurig a couple of years ago from Costco, and I fell in love immediately! You can make five different cup sizes, and it makes iced coffee as well!  Since I don't do much of the coffee drinking around my house, here is the coffee that my parents use! As for me, I drink Twining’s English Breakfast

Friday Favorites - 1.19.21 + A Big Surprise!!

Hey friends!! Happy Fri-YAY, the best day of the week!! I hope you have had a wonderful week so far! I feel like this week has gone by SUPER fast! I measure the time of my week by WandaVision episodes, and it seems like I just saw Episode 6!! 😂 Today, like always, I will be sharing my FAVORITES from this week + this week I have a little  BIG surprise for you all to see! I can't wait!! Let's get into it! *Linking up with Erika , Andrea , Shelbee , Nancy My first FAVORITE of the day is also my BIG surprise!!  So as you all know, our sweet pup Maddie passed away a couple of weeks ago. We missed having a dog so much, and it was so hard for all of us. So, we started looking for dogs. We connected with the West Tennessee Border Collie Rescue, and they found a male puppy in Prattville, which is so close to us. At first, we weren't sure if he was available for adoption or even fostering. It turns out he was! On Saturday, Mom picked up him from the shelter, and when I got home from

Friday Favorites - It’s 2021!!

  Hey friends!! Happy 2021! I am still amazed that we left 2020 behind, and are now experiencing 2021!! What a year 2020 was, and I am hoping 2021 can be at least a little bit better. Today I am sharing a huge haul of favorites from my Christmas Break, Christmas Eve and Day, New Year’s, and recent thing too!  As usual, I am linking up  with  Erika  and  Andrea , and Shelbee Before I get into this post, I would like to slow down and talk about some of the things happening in America right now. On Wednesday, led by the president, there was an insurrection, people broke into the US Capitol, and people died. This is wrong on so many levels, but this goes even deeper. Back in the Summer, people supporting Black Lives Matter were peacefully protesting and were tear-gassed so that our president could pose for a couple of photos. The people who were rioting outside of the capitol, and eventually some broke in, were not tear-gassed away, and they were breaking into the Capitol. People were shot
