Ending 2019

Hey everyone! How are we feeling about this year and decade ending?! Personally nothing feels different but I love any excuse to start new and fresh. Make some new goals and plan out an amazing 2020! What are some of your goals? I plan on incorporating more fashion into my makeup posts. Taking more pictures and doing my makeup more and making it more interesting. Plan the best first birthday for my baby girl! Get back into fitness more. Write more workouts for y’all. These are just a few ideas that come to mind when thinking about starting fresh in January.

Remember that you don’t need to wait til January 1st to start healthy habits or change things in your life. Jan 1st is just an ordinary day that we put too much focus on. So start your goals or resolutions today! I already have by starting to workout. I have a beach trip with my husband planned for February so I’m working on getting ready now! I’ll post my at home workout later for y’all!!

Thanksgiving Fashion

Good morning everyone! Who is ready for the holidays? I am soo beyond ready! Many of you know we have been renovating our house a bit and it’s starting to come together. Hopefully a large chunk will be done before Thanksgiving.

I love the holidays! I love cooking and decorating, getting dressed up and hosting people over. This is one of the first holiday times that we aren’t traveling and we are doing everything in our own home!

So I wanted to share this super cute outfit and makeup look for this holiday season. I got this cute, festive vest from amazon! Great find. I’m obsessed with my over the knee boots I got from kohl’s. And jeans and blue top are both from lucky brand. I threw a slight wave in my hair with my curling wand. Lipstick is from dose of colors. A red lip is always a great choice. Truly my favorite accessory. Eyes are morphe eye shadows and lashaholic lashes! So simple and yet classic and beautiful!

What do y’all think about this holiday look I put together? I will continue to put some more of these together for y’all! And I always post makeup looks on instagram! So follow me on there!

Super Simple, but Super delicious Chicken Tortilla Soup

Happy Tuesday! Today I’m going to share with you my recipe to make this awesome soup that is perfect for bigger families or to be eaten on for a few days. It gave me and my husband 3 days worth of dinner and we definitely fill our bowls too full.

You probably don’t know but I have a secret love affair with my crockpot. I’m not sure why but I have always loved using my crockpot. Who doesn’t love being able to throw everything in a big pot, toss on a lid and let it do its thing. Hours later you open it up and voila dinner is done, perfect and ready to eat!

So for this recipe make sure you have a fairly large crockpot. I have made the mistake of trying to put it in a smaller one and it does not fit!! I apologize I don’t know what size my crockpot is, I can’t find it on the pot anywhere.

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Ingredients:

  • 4 uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast halves- you can really do whatever amount of chicken you prefer.
  • 2 cans of beans- I use 2 cans of mixed beans. It has black beans, pinto and kidney beans already in one can! I love it. Use whatever you like. Black beans are traditional but I like variety.
  • 1 can green chilies
  • 2 cans of rotel tomatoes
  • 1 cup of your favorite salsa
  • 1 15oz can of tomato sauce
  • Whatever toppings you like- cheese, tortilla chips, sour cream…

Combine all the above ingredients except the toppings in your crockpot. No need to drain any of the cans.

Cover and cook on low for 8hrs. You can stir and the chicken should shred super easily. I think this soup gets better day after day.

Then enjoy!
