Little Miss

Mac 'n' Cheese
Bubbles and Bath Time
Snuggles and Cuddles,
Lady and The Tramp.

Books, Blankets, and Bed Time.

That is what my night consisted of.
Little Miss Ave and I had a sleep over.

I cant get enough of this little stink.
I love being Aunt Tensey..



I was so excited 
and scared out of my mind 
to get on ice skates for the first time 
ever in my life.
I have always wanted to do it.
Just never did it. 
So while everyone was in town this weekend,
Kelly thought we should do it.
Now I cant wait to try again.
Plus I am proud of myself,
I did not fall once.
Talk about gold stars for me!

I can say that I give a heck of a lot of credit,
to the figure skaters, hockey players, and 
everyone else who uses this thing on a daily basis.
I am jealous of how easy you make it look,
Cause it is a lot more hard then I thought it would be.

I did walk aways with a bruise though,
from the skates being so freaking tight.
ugh, no pain, no gain.. right?

Chili and Cornbread Heaven.

Since the temperature has been dropping lately, I have been craving to make some homemade chili and cornbread. Searching the Internet for some really good recipes, since last time I made chili the recipe wasn't all that it cracked up to be. It was more of a taco soup type of soup then a good hearty meaty chili. Here are a few of the recipes that I have come across that sound ooh so delicious. I cant wait to make some chili and cornbread tomorrow! 

This Chili sounds so good and you would never guess that it is low-fat.

You can never go wrong with a Dean's recipe. My mom loves to make Paula Dean or any of the Dean's recipes because they are always good. I have this recipe in my cookbook but I haven't tried it yet. If its from a Dean, it has to be good. Right?

Pat's Famous Beef and Pork Chili.. Now this chili look and sounds amazingly delicious, and hearty too! Cant be that right? I think that the Neely's from Food Network are really good cooks,
 they never fail when it comes to flavor in a dish.

So I still wonder which recipe will win this Sunday:) 
Stay tuned to find out!

Chicken Noodle Soup

I remember growing up
 soon as fall weather was in the air
mom would make a huge batch of this yummy stuff.
It was always the one of the biggest hits in our house.
I haven't made it since I moved out,
and guess what it got cold this week!
When the girls decided to do a girls night,
I knew it was the perfect opportunity to pull out the crock pot,
whip up a delicious batch of this good stuff.
Curl up on the couch and have a lazy girls night.
I hope the girls get here soon cause I keep sneaking more of it.
I have to say that I am pretty proud of myself,
this is the first all from scratch batch :)
