About Me

My photo
I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

Oh the Weather outside is frightful...

I love fall, and I love the winter season! Why? You may ask? No, it is not because I am a snow skier, I love that it gets too cold to go outside, and that it gets dark earlier so all my family gathers together in the evening. As one of my favorite songs this time of the year says "Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful, as long as you love me dear, let is snow, let it snow, let it snow!"
Well if the weather outside is frightful, you better have warm hot chocolate and yummy warm food. One of my favorite things to fix this time of year is soup. My favorite soup (besides potato soup) is Mexi Soup!

Mexi Soup

2 skinned, and boned chicken breast
3 T of vegetable oil

*cook chicken in hot oil in a large pan, stirring often. Once cooked, cube or shredded chicken.

1 med onion
1 tsp minced garlic
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn
1 (15 ounce) black beans, rinsed & drained
1 (15 ounce) diced tomatoes
1 (4.5 ounce) can of green chiles
2 cups of water
1 can condensed nacho cheese soup
2 T of lime juice
fajita seasoning packet
3 T of flour

*after chicken is shredded or cubed add the garlic and onion to pot to saute. Once done add flour, and 3 T of fajita seasoning, and add the reset of the ingredients -simmer until warm, stirring often!

I serve this with shredded cheese, sour cream, and strips of tortilla I have fried up earlier in the day, or chips I have bought from the store if in a hurry.

I love this warm soup! With a Mexican taste, and I love that this soup is made from staples!!! So even if you get caught in a winter storm you can have all the ingredients right in your pantry!!! I hope everyone has a lovely holiday season! Remember we get to choose our attitudes and thoughts so choose an attitude of Thankfulness over this Thanksgiving holiday!

I love to save money.....especially on those items that you have to buy and are disposable ..like food. However at times I get busy and lazy and forget to do the coupon dance, of cutting, filing, and searching. However I have recently found a new way of couponing (as I like to call it). Thanks to my friend Jayna she told me about this blog www.moneysavingmom.com.

Wow! I probably am the last person to find this blog, but if you have not heard of it, GO THERE!!! It matches up coupons and sales each week for Walgreens, CVS, Target, and tells you "print here" or what "date" (key part here) that the coupon was in the Sunday paper. So no more cutting and filing by alphabetically order -killing yourself and zapping your time. You just write Sunday Nov 15th and drop those coupons from the Sunday paper and when you need to find a coupon you just look behind the date in the file. Simple! and such a time saver!!!!! As well as money saving!

Money saving mom's blog also list other great deals found on the web so you do not have to spend your computer time searching.

I have found a few other great money saving blogs: www.couponingtodisney.blogspot.com

I hope you enjoy, and save time while saving money!

Crafting, decorating, couponing, reading, dancing, exercising, facebooking, blogging,cooking, bible study,...these are a few of my favorite things.

As a stay at home mom I still need to do the laundry, make the meals, do the dishes and bless my family by having a clean home for them to come home to. There fore I am learning time management. I can do all things that I enjoy but I have to make time for them, and learn how to balance them. That can be tricky!!! So I am turning to all the moms that I respect at in blog land and I am asking how do you do it?
