We were supposed to go and look for big girl beds yesterday, but it just didn't happen. We made a trip to the grocery store in the morning, and then we got a serious case of the lazies, and we never made it out again.
I was in a mad cleaning mood, and so, I was actually productive while I was in my jammies! I cleaned out my car which was a total pit. Does anyone with kids actually keep their car clean? If you do, let me in on your secret! I think I recovered 3 sippy cups, 2 snack containers, 3 pairs of sunglasses, a sweatshirt, 2 books, a stuffed singing duck, and tons of Cheerios. It was glorious to actually be able to see the floor of my car. I'll be vacuuming out the car today...
I even got caught up on the girls laundry. I bit the bullet and put away all the remainders of the girls summer clothes. I've been holding on to a few pieces thinking we might have some warmer weather, but it looks like it's going to be in the 50s this weekend, so I am just going to store them away.
We had the tv on all day, tuned into the Ryder Cup. For the record, I don't play golf. Never have. However, I love watching it on tv. Don't know why, there is no explaination here. Things were super intense there at the end! I was biting my nails for sure!
Speaking of nails, I also managed to paint my nails this weekend! That never happens. I usually like reds, but I had to try this color by Essie called Master Plan. I saw a gray color on my friend Cheryl at her baby shower recently, and loved it. I know she used an OPI color, but I've been drawn to Essie lately. I love their colors, and the names!
I also made crockpot chili yesterday. I have never made chili in my life, but this is definitely the season for it. And yesterday just seemed like the perfect day to try. It turned out amazing!
I loaded my chili with cheese and sour cream. Heavenly, I swear!
The chili recipe was super easy. Here it is in case you want to give it a try!
