A Random Mix!

Today’s post is just a random mix of things, friends! Β I had an assortment to share with you this week and decided, heck, I’ll just stick it all in one post πŸ™‚ .

First up…

…did you set your DVRs???? Β Kensington and I sat down on Sunday night and set ours! Β The first original one for 2018 begins on Saturday night, but tomorrow afternoon, they start playing the older ones. Β Somebody pinch me!

Second thing on my list…

12 Easy Chili Recipes

…’tis chili season, so I thought I’d remind you about my 12 Easy Chili Recipes! Β They’re all really yummy and easy too! Β I made my Sweet Corn Chili on Sunday night for our annual Harvest Party…

…Smith decided to save his costume for Halloween night, but look at my girls! Β They all selected their own costumes, and I couldn’t be more pleased! Β We have Elsa, Anna and Liv (of Liv and Maddie!).

These sisters were so excited!!!!!!

As was my Liv!

Once we arrived, she united with her Maddie! Β Aren’t they so cute?! Β We had a friend make their shirts (it had their names on the back), and then we just pieced it all together.


I was so busy enjoying the beautiful evening that I didn’t take very many pics. Β Here is one with Griffin

…a random bounce house pic…

…a shot of all the kids! We had them ranging from days old to high school!

I love this one!!!

And then…

…look at this one my friend sent. Β Hahahaha! Β Look at all the moms!

I surprised Smith with tickets to see Dav Pilkey at an event by our house.Β  It was such a special afternoon!!Β  Dav Pilkey was so inspiring!!Β  I was encouraged by his message to kiddos that day myself.Β  Smith’s favorite part?

Meeting him!Β  Every kiddo there got to have their picture with him.Β  It was really special!

Know what I’m doing today?Β  Turning 37.Β  You know what?Β  I have my health, a wonderful husband, kiddos I love, a great family, the best girlfriends and a relationship with Jesus Christ.Β  I consider myself really blessed on this birthday.Β  From me to you, happy October 25th! xo

    All the girls costumes. I love both of madeleys the best. Did she decide she wanted to be fancy Nancy for her birthday party and Ana for actual halloween?

      Ashby and Madeley have been talking about Anna and Elsa for months (since probably like May!), so when we went to buy those costumes, I told her she could pick one more for her special costume birthday party and she immediately saw the Fancy Nancy and wanted to be that πŸ™‚ .
