Sorry for the Hiatus!

October has been a crazy month! Crazy but good! If you are my friend on Facebook you will probably think all I do is take photos of my kids and drink. I mean, that is so untrue. (Riiiiight)

     First of all, how brilliantly creative is this Halloween costume? My friend Erin in Charleston dressed up
         her son B and her dog Izzie! I'm sure this photo will make an appearance at his rehearsal dinner!

White jeans for Fall/Winter. What do you think? My grandmother would roll over in her grave but can we still wear them?

I want to make this but want to know...can I use frozen chicken? Please let me know if you think I can! 

Weight Watchers Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili via Photo a Day
Servings: 10

1 onion, chopped 
1 16-oz can black beans 
1 16-oz can kidney beans 
1 8-oz can tomato sauce (used a 16 oz can)
10 oz package frozen corn kernels (used 2 small cans of corn kernels)
2 14.5-oz cans diced tomatoes w/chilies (used a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes)
1 packet taco seasoning 
1 tbsp cumin 
1 tbsp chili powder (used a bit more as I didn't have any chilies in my tomatoes)
24 0z. (3) boneless skinless chicken breasts 
chili peppers, chopped (optional)
chopped fresh cilantro 
Combine beans, onion, chili peppers, corn, tomato sauce, cumin, chili powder and taco seasoning in a slow cooker. Place chicken on top and cover. Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for 6 hours. Half hour before serving, remove chicken and shred. Return chicken to slow cooker and stir in. Top with fresh cilantro. Also try it with low fat cheese and sour cream (extra points).  

I am starting the Jillian Michaels Body Revolution Videos, (Thanks Abbie!) I need to get this jiggle back into shape and never have time to trek to the gym so I can do this during my lunch break.

We had an amazing weekend up in Asheville for the Christ School vs Asheville School Football game. My friend EA's Dad graduated a year after my Dad and now their daughters and grandsons are buddies! A BIG time was had by all. (Especially this girl)

  1. That costume is fantastic! She is crafty! Such a cute idea. I love the leaf pics!!

  2. That costume is hillarious. Let me know how the Jillan videos are, I could use something new to spice up my workouts! Not sure about the frozen chicken but its probably fine to use.

  3. that's adorable! I always use frozen chicken. Well, I buy regular chicken in bulk and then freeze it immediately. And yes yes yes, wear those white pants ma'am! It's very french!
