End of the week links, kudos, and soup

Where has this couple been all my life?!? Seriously. Just a warning...this site has the potential to consume hours of your time. Don't ask me how I know.

Check out this site for FREE downloads and super cool stuff.


Wow, you guys are awesome! Thanks so much for your responses to my skinny jeans dilemma. Your encouragement is just what I need to take the plunge. The girls and I are headed to the mall tonight while my boys are at the Ankeny FB game, so I may just have to try some on for size. I'll let you know how it goes.

A special thanks to my hubby who tweeted this last night also in response to that post:

"Did my wife really dedicate an entire blog to soliciting advice on skinny jeans? She needs someone other than me to tell her how hot she is?"

Awww...he knows just how to make this mama feel good.


Speaking of Twitter, yesterday I tweeted that I was making this fall's first batch of soup, Bacon Potato Chowder. Soon after that tweet, I had a request from Liz to share the recipe (and I use that word loosely) to this family favorite. So, Liz, this is for you:

Bacon Potato Chowder...the real recipe and my changes:

1 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled (I just use the pre-cooked, pre-crumbled recipe pieces)
2-3 cup new red potatoes, cubed
1 cup chopped onions
8 ounces sour cream
1 1/4 cup milk
1 can cream of chicken soup
1, 8 ounce can corn, drained
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. thyme

Mix in crockpot. Cook on low 8 hours or on high for 5 hours.

I usually almost double the recipe, that way we have leftovers.


Happy Friday, everyone!

Uhhh... I'm glad that someone else asked for the soup recipe first b/c I was going to FB you about it :)
