Let’s Talk.. Recipes!

How is it possible that it’s already the second week of November?! I mean, don’t get me wrong of course I’m excited for all the Christmas festivities I have planned this year but it’s just crazy how fast this year has gone!

Also – I want to give BIG props to myself for the fact that I actually cooked 3 meals this last week.. yeah you read that right.. 3 dinners in one week (we had quite a bit of leftovers to help with the other days!)!  To most of you, that’s pitiful but to me.. it’s a huge win!  I’m teaming up with Erika and Andrea today to chat about what’s been going on in my kitchen lately!

We made Chicken Enchiladas on Sunday and they were pretty tasty! I’d never had them before but was pleasantly surprised 🙂 One change I’d make is, I’d buy bigger tortillas (and maybe corn versus flour) and make sure they are stuffed full!

On Tuesday, I made Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches (per the hubs request) and they actually were pretty great too! I eat the meat by itself versus a sandwich but the sandwich was husband approved! 🙂

I also made breakfast for dinner one night because I love breakfast 🙂

If you’re looking for a yummy breakfast for the holidays, a favorite of ours is this breakfast casserole!  It’s one that we definitely make on rotation every few weeks especially when we’re hosting!  We also love Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas and this Slow Cooker Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe as well!

Friday Faves!

Yeeeeeehawwww it’s finally Friday and I’m working for the weekend!  After work, I’m headed to pick up L from work and then it’s off to his parents house (about a 5 hour drive!) for a quick weekend!  We’re doing an escape room for my SIL’s 16th birthday and it should definitely be interesting!  Have you ever done one?! If so, was it fun? Any way, I’m linking up as usual for my favorites on Friday! 🙂

A big question I’m always asked is how I tie those darn blanket scarves?!  I shared my tutorial over here on Tuesday!  It’s easy peasy after you give it a try 🙂

These boots… enough said 🙂  But of course, I’ll say more!  I shared on my FB page earlier this week how awesome these boots are and I need to share them again!  I styled them in this post and I’m seriously obsessed!  Know what else I’m obsessed with…? Finding an almost identical pair for 5 times the price.. yes you read that right.. 5 times.. to make me realize how awesome my deal is!

I also really love these boots – on sale for $40 and I just can’t decide which color to order!  The almost identical pair (same designer!) from Nordstrom is $200 – Target for the win this week!!  Let me know if you’re interested in ways to style either of these?! 🙂

Umm did you hear that it’s November and now acceptable to discuss a HUGE favorite of mine… CHRISTMAS!?!?  Well if not, now you did 🙂 I’m seriously obsessed and have already sent out my invites to the cookie exchange party – and let me tell you.. they’re perfect!

I stopped into Nordstrom the other day to look for a few Christmas gifts and thought I’d look for myself a little bit as well (duh).  I loved this sweater ($39) and this tee (I have it in green currently and it’s a definite must have!).

Excuse my hair.. I was planning to just run in and out quick but #itsnordstrom!

Also, if you’re starting your Holiday shopping soon, definitely check out the holiday gifts section on Nordstrom’s website if you’re looking for a few stocking stuffers or gifts for her or him!  And as always, they have free shipping and free returns if you want to just give something a try 🙂

Hope you have a fabulous weekend and enjoy some sunshine!  I’ll be back on Monday to share some of my favorite recipes so if you’re looking for some new things to add to your rotation, check back!  Or subscribe to the blog (and enter the giveaway!) to have it sent straight to your inbox!

Family Pictures

Happy Thursday!! We’re 1 day away from our beloved Friday!!

If you have read my blog or know me at all then it’s no surprise to you that I love getting pictures taken of Logan and me.  I mean, I had pictures taken in our wedding attire after our wedding so we could have snow in them and did 2 engagement sessions 🙂  My husband doesn’t love pictures as much – so I’ve learned we have to do “quick” pictures in order to get a few good ones!
