White Bean Chicken Chili Recipe

This past weekend, we entered a chili cook off contest.  Correction: Lance entered us (read: me) into the contest.  Friends of ours were putting it on for charity, and if you read my New Year’s post, you saw that my number one goal this coming year is to give back more.  So even though I was out of town all week, and I’ve never cooked anything in bulk before in my life…we entered a chili cook off LOL. We had no intention in winning…we just wanted to bring some good chili.  My favorite chili is a chicken chili that I make often, and I thought it would break up all the tomato based beef chilis.  It is really delicious, especially […]

Happy Monday!  Who else is excited that it’s THANKSGIVING WEEK??  I AM!  It’s such a crazy time for me (being in retail), but I love it.  This year was super crazy because we left for Iceland on November 10th, so I had to have the store decorated before we left.  And I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year, so I want to have my house at least partially decorated by Thanksgiving.  We just got back Saturday night, so Sunday was crazy to say the least.  But I love it!  It will all be worth it when I’m eating all day on Thursday haha! I am so excited to share this jacket with you!  Not only is it one of my favorite purchases […]

Building Your Fall Wardrobe

Happy Monday!!  Did you have a good weekend?  Mine was great…I am LOVING this weather.  We’ve been sleeping with the window open and it’s been heavenly.  Fall is definitely here and I hope it’s here to stay.

I’m sure we all remember where we were when we heard the news.  I heard it over my CLOCK RADIO as my alarm went off at 9 a.m. when I was in college.  I can remember walking to class and it was eerily quiet.  No airplanes.  No cars.  It was very strange.  I’m actually heading to NY this Friday and Lance and I are planning to go to Ground Zero. I thought it […]

Free People Glam Embellished Denim Jacket

Happy Friday!  Any fun plans this weekend??  I’m heading to DC for a couple nights.  I haven’t been to DC in years, so I’m pretty excited to go explore and eat some great food, and we’re going to see COLDPLAY in concert.  EEEKK.  I have seen them several times and would see them 100 more, I love them so much.  If you have any must-dos in DC, let me know! This is one of my favorite shoots I have done with Austen!  First of all, if you ever need a photographer in Charlotte, she is AWESOME.  I love her so much.  Personally she is the sweetest and she has awesome vision/artistic talent.  I am not naturally comfortable in front of […]
