I'll admit, I'm totally obsessed with pinterest!  I love all the fun ideas, beautiful clothes, and quotes.  

I've always been one to write down a good quote and pull it out later when I need it.  Here's one of my favorites from pinterest.

Slow-Cooker Chili {Recipe}

Thursdays are our crazy day.  Between preschool, kindergarten, homework, and ballet there is little time to cook a great dinner.

I've been trying out new recipes and this one is a winner.I actually combined a few different recipes I found to suit our taste.


1 lb. ground beef
1/2 green pepper, diced
1 large yellow onion, diced
1 tsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, diced
1 can Brooks Chili Beans
1 can Red Beans
1 can Chili Flavored Diced Tomatoes
1 - 4 oz. tomato paste
1/2 c. beef broth (you can use more if you like you chili thinner)
1 packet chili season mix. I like this one.
1 tsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. cocoa


Pour olive oil in a skillet.  Saute onions and green peppers until soft.  Add in ground beef and cook thoroughly.  Add in garlic until slightly soft.  Add to slow cooker.  Add all other ingredients.  Mix.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

It's Here

Yesterday I woke up to snow on the ground and a white sky that looked like it was going to burst snow at any second.

Honestly I should be happy that it is December and we haven't had a major snow, but I'm not.  I hate how my mood is controlled by the weather in the winter.

Today, although cold, the sun is shining.  That already makes today better than yesterday.
