I ♥ Sigma's Synthetic Kabuki Brushes!

Christmas sorta came early, but never the less I love that my husband thought of me! 

These brushes are awesome, today was my first day using the round kabuki brush to apply my foundation and I actually had extra foundation left on the back of my hand because the brush was so dense it didn't soak up much foundation.  ♥!

Hollister's Yoga Leggings Don't Fail Me

A quick review:  These have a tight folded waistband that keep it in place.  I personally don't find these leggings to be a *ahem* camel toe problem issue, and these do make your butt look good :)

Cinnamon Apple Muffins, and giving Thanks

Cinnamon Apple Muffins by Duncan Hines :P

I just wanted to bake these to make our home smell yummy! 

ANYWAYS, giving thanks.  Recently I was in a situation where I wasn't living in my own home for about 2 months.  Now that i'm back I am thankful for so much. 

I'm thankful we don't live upstairs on top of another family, because if we did i'd go nuts constantly having to tell Keenan to be quiet. 

I'm thankful for being able to have space!

I'm thankful for netflix streaming, sounds gay I know but we got rid of cable and Keenan absolutely loves that he can choose what he wants to watch.  We're saving a good $60/month and i'm not looking back! 

I'm thankful that my friends understand who I am and that we don't need to call each other everyday just to stay friends.  While everything might not be exactly the same, our love for one another is still the same.

I'm thankful that after what i've overcome these past few months, my body is still in tact.

OF COURSE, i'm thankful for my husband and son.  I don't need to explain much, but that they are a part of me always.

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili


93/7 Ground Turkey
Two cans of Tomato Soup
1 can of Hunts tomatoes for Chili
1 can of black beans
1 can of pinto beans
3 1/2 tbsp of chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
dash of allspice
1 medium onion chopped
3 cloves of garlic chopped
salt for flavoring
*optional: cayenne pepper for spiciness

Directions:  Cook the garlic and onion first, then add turkey.  In the crock pot, add in the rest of ingredients, mix, then add turkey.  Cook on high for 4-6 hours (doesn't matter)

I'm pretty impressed with this recipe, it's super flavorful.  I must admit I was pretty scared at first because I haven't made chili in years and I wasn't sure what the outcome would be.  I think next time i'll add in some chopped green bell peppers and corn in it.  Try it, it's simple and you won't go back to buying canned chili.  I stored some in a tupperware in the fridge, and freezed the rest.  It's great for a warm winter meal.  It puts your spices to good use :)
