Slow Cooker Sundays

Since the weather is finally cooling down, I have been very eager to start cooking in the crock pot. I love the smell of food cooking all day as the leaves outside are changing colors and falling. I am going to make this a Sunday tradition. Last week, I made a Chicken Posole soup; it was delicious! It had diced tomatoes, hominy, chicken, and onions in it. Even though these one pot meals make so much food, it is great to have the leftovers for the following week. There is currently a vegetable and tortellini soup in the slow cooker right now. I am just waiting for my date, Greg, to come over and enjoy the meal with me. I bought some cornbread from Whole Foods that we are going to eat with it. I have never eaten it from there before, but it looks delicious.
Dinner for tonight. Yum!
We'll see what I come up with next Sunday! :)

I'm Back to the Blogging World..For Now!

We'll see how long my return to blogging lasts. Hopefully I will be a little better at updating this site. A lot has gone on since the last time I was on here. I won't go into every detail, but I will touch on a few of the bigger things. I went to St. Augustine at the end of July with Greg, Lisa, and a few other people. We had a blast! I went deep-sea fishing for the first time, and I loved it! Greg caught a shark; scary!

 The month of July was pretty relaxed, which was nice. Greg's sister got married during the last weekend of July. She looked beautiful!  I got to meet a lot of Greg's extended family. They reminded me a lot of my aunts and uncles. School is back in session. It took me a while to get used to working a full-time job again. It's crazy to think we are going to start our 4th week already! I feel like school started yesterday.

The craziest thing that has happened since my last post is the car I got when I was 16 died! The transmission decided it didn't really want to work anymore. It was kind of scary driving it to the shop. Even though I was very stressed and upset about saying bye to the car I had for nine years, I was very lucky to get a wonderful new car out of a crappy situation! Who knew I would be driving a different car to work this week than last week. Unfortunately, it has to go back to Carmax tomorrow because there is water seeping in and onto the fabric on the upper left corner near the windshield. It's frustrating because all I want to do is drive it, and now I have to wait a day or two while it's getting fixed. I'm going to have to be very patient!

This week is pretty exciting because I turn 25 on Thursday! I'm officially getting old; it actually excites me, which might sound a little crazy. I'm super excited for the weekend because I am going shopping for new work clothes with my mom as a birthday gift; can't wait! I'm also looking forward for next weekend because Greg and I are going to Nashville. I hope these next two weeks go by fast! Hopefully I will be back sooner rather than later! Peace.
