Thank you, Back to the Future, for letting me down… YOU SAID THE CUBS WIN 2015 WORLD SERIES!!!

Maybe, next year. (The official Cubs fan slogan)

Thank you, Shelly and Susan, for inspiring to make chili. 2 out of 3 kids do not like chili, so I haven’t made it for a while, but after seeing Shelly’s post and Susan’s post, I thought you know what… I WANT CHILI. I think chili is back in my life. 🙂

Thank you, kiddos, for wonderful parent teacher conferences. The PTO/school sure do know how/when to schedule a book fair.

Thank you, friends, for helping me pick out hairstyles for my round face. Do you have any suggestions for me?

Friends, I’m here again…I’m in the “I’m so over my hair phase”, and I need your help! 1) I haven’t had a haircut in MONTHS! Almost a year! 2) My bangs! I mean only Jessica Rabbit & Aaliyah can pull this off. 3) I want to cut my hair super short or I want it to grow at a super speed and BOOM hair down my back! 4) I have naturally curly hair, so short hairstyles can be tricky. 5) my face is round! I’m not sure contouring works on a gal like me, so my hair has to help out somehow. 6)I almost took my husband’s clippers to my head. But then I remembered my forehead 7) Now I’m just rambling… What hairstyle do you think would look good on me? I’m not afraid to join the #shorthairdontcare movement. Thanks! Love ya

Thank you, Crossfit!!! I’ve missed you!!! I’m glad to have you back in my life kickin’ my behind!!!! Crossfit in socks. Yes, I went shoeless. It was deadlift day, squishy Nikes weren’t going to do the job.

Thank you, Friday, I’m in love!!!!  
What are you thankful for this week or weekend?

Pssst… are you last minute DIYer? Me too! I wrote a post over on BlogHer with a few Last Minute DIY ideas. 🙂 Also, I would love if you read my book review about Parenting with Purpose.

  1. Do you use Jimmy’s Thank You Note Music playing in the background when you write yours? Hey, thanks so much for the Chili Shout Out! Much appreciated!

    1. Sometimes 😀
      You’re welcome! I’m seriously in love with your food/blog!! Thank goodness I can’t reach through the screen and gobble it up, because I would need extra Crossfit in my life. 🙂

  2. My husband is a loyal true Dolphins fan and a die-hard METS fan. He is in his glory right now! Our house will not be the same until the World Series is over. Thanks for hosting my favorite linkup. I shouted your party out this week, well because you are wonderful!

    1. Wow! What are the odds? Dolphins and Mets. Well, this year I’m a Dolphins fan too. 🙂 Mets, not so much, they crushed my little Dolphin’s heart. 🙁
      Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, for showing me some love on your blog!!! Two weeks in a row… I LOVE YOU, WOMAN!!
      Wishing you a beautiful weekend with your beautiful family! <3

  3. That is such a cute picture of you! Love the bangs, something I’m so jealous other people can rock so well that I never could. And too bad for the Cubs! Huge fan of BTTF and loved the second one the best.

    1. Awwww thank you, Nina!! 🙂 My bangs are nothing to be jealous of,for 1) they are crazy 2) I need a trim in the worst way and 3) I only have bangs to cover my eh hem… forehead. 😀 You’re gorgeous no need to cover that beautiful face. 🙂

    1. The coffee ring was inadvertent as well. My husband was like, “Babe, LOOK!” 😀
      I was happy to see that my coffee loves me too. 🙂
      Wishing you a happy weekend!!

  4. Your socks are all kinds of awesome! My husband swears by working out in Converse(s) because they’re flat and sturdy. I worked out Wednesday for the first time in ages. I still can’t walk! Old age is catching up to me. Go Dolphins! (He looks so cute!) xoxo

    1. I have a Halloween sock collection 🙂 My friends and family spoil me every year for my birthday. 🙂
      You not old! Confession: We swear by Chucks too.
      My husband: Babe you’re wearing the wrong shoes today, you need your Chucks.
      Me: But they’re all the way in the house. Can I just go barefoot?
      Husband: Sure. 🙂 Now, that’s old and lazy. 😀
      Thank you, I’m pretty smitten with him.

  5. Wow. It’s true. Your coffee is totally happy to see you too!
    Isn’t that special?
    I’m upset the Cubs didn’t go on. Don’t 80’s movies pretty much predict everything??
    Go Dolphins!
    And I heard “Friday, I’m in Love” today and thought about YOU!

    1. I thought it was pretty darn special, me & my coffee have a thing. 🙂 Oh love.
      My little guy & I were both so bummed. I kept telling him about how we’re supposed to win, because Back to the Future said so. :-/ Maybe next year.
      🙂 That made me smile! I love that song.
      I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend with your awesome family!

    1. Thank you! I thought, this chili isn’t that photogenic, but I wanted to show Susan & Shelly they inspired me. The coffee ring made me smile too, my husband spotted it, and was just as excited as I was that coffee is happy too. 🙂

  6. Mmm, chili! I want to make some, though not at 6 in the morning 😉
    Wish I could help you with the hair advice, but that picture of you is adorable!
    I’m thankful to get lots of time with friends (and Sam and Eve) this weekend. Two toddler birthday parties and two dinners with friends. Woot!

    1. But wouldn’t it be nice if at 6:00 in the morning chili would magically appear? 🙂 If coffee brewed itself & dishes cleaned themselves… that would be the life. 😀
      Aww thanks, Bev! ::blushes:: I’m thinking I’m going to go for it & cut it real short.
      Sounds like you’re having an AWESOME weekend. 🙂 You deserve it, m’friend!

  7. This reminded me that I’ve been slacking on my Thankful Thursday posts. I’ll be back on schedule and ready to link up next week. The chili looks delicious. Will there be a recipe post coming soon? We love chili over here!

    1. I cannot wait for you to linkup, I always enjoy your Thankful Thursday posts! I totally understand scheduling issues, it gets tough to stay on top of it all; ummm I still have part 4 of my road trip in my draft folder. :-/ This time of year gets busy! Birthdays, kids’ sports, kids’ school activities, appointments, and just life.
      Really? I thought the chili was nowhere near as pretty as Susan or Shelly’s but I posted anyway for them to see they inspired me. 🙂 I didn’t think to write up a post on it…DOH!
      Wishing you a beautiful weekend!

    1. I think the kids like it again, it doesn’t hurt that I served the chili with tortilla chips, they like the chips over cornbread. 🙂
