world market

i love you.
in a town that offers very little
in the shopping department.
this store NEVER lets me down.
i love their furniture, jewelry, food, and gift wrapping stuff.
(my husband loves their speciality drinks)

here are few of my new
favorite things.

i love this table runner.

this coffee table is so nice.
you can add stuff under the glass.
(my little chicken would crash through the top)

so, what do you think??

they always have great deals and you can
 find a coupon online!

yes,... it's been over a year
sense i started redoing my
master bedroom.
i feel like it's a constant work in progress.
do you feel like that?
do you change your mind as much as i do?

well, i was so excited about the new
target line that i had to incorporate it
into my bedroom.

my bedroom is super feminine and light
and this new decor was going to go
perfect in my room!

what do you think?

i just ordered a new bolster pillow
from etsy.

the horse head is from target.

my new chevron pillow, and 3 pics. are
from target.

i must admit.
i don't usually decorate all from one store.
but, this was all PERFECT!!

to the super easy to apply


they carry
chalk paint and teach
classes on how to apply and
do different techniques!

i was super excited and was dieing to try it!
so, i decided to invite
some friends for a workshop!
we had a lot of fun and i can't wait to
something else!

1.we used old cabinet doors.
2. painted the inside with
chalk paint.
3.picked an annie sloan chalk paint color.
4.painted around the edge.
5. dried FAST!
6. waxed.
7. some of the girls added a stain. can add hooks or handles to your board for cuteness.

for her daughters high school play.)

moddy's family pics.

i love getting our family pictures taken.
yes, it's a huge pain in the rear.
the outfits, whinny kids, making people laugh,
picking the location..blah..blah...blah.
it's just not fun in the midst of the craziness!
but, the end results make it all worth it.
we had my dear friend
Jan (check her cute blog out here)  do our pictures this year.
she is a wonderful photographer and
 great gal to work with.
(she really knew how to make us laugh)

bee's family 2011

we had 12 kids at our house for the holidays:  nine kids, a daughter and son-in-law and our sweet granddaughter.  our kids range in age from 25 down to 5, it was great! it's difficult for us to get a picture of all of us together but we did succeed thanks to moddy, my costco camera and savvy teenagers who have mastered picnik (photo editing).  enjoy!

easy crockpot chili verde

i love the crock pot.
i especially love it in the winter.
 i must admit im a little picky about what
i put in my crock pot.
many who know me know i pretty much
gag at the thought of using
cream of ANYTHING in my food.
but, most crock pot recipes use it!
so, here is a fabulous chili verde recipe
that is a huge crowd pleaser in my home.

oh, and it doesn't have an ounce of cream of gag in it!

put one onion, 4 pounds cubed pork shoulder (i had the butcher cube it for me),
1tsp. salt, and 1/2 pepper in a pan. 

cook until browned.

you'll need one can of this.

one can of this.

and one jar of this.

put browned meet and onion in crock pot.
add 1/2 tsp. cumin, and a little more salt and pepper.
(i always add more salt...i love salt)

dump all of the jar/cans on top.
let cook for 6-8 hrs. on low.
fast, huh!?
eat with flour or corn tortillas.
i like a little sour cream on top.
