Texas Chili

Made this chili today; it's a perfect Fall day in the mountains and chili was just what we needed.  This recipe comes from one of Ryan's Texan aunts.  It's very mild; throw in some of your favorite hot sauce to spice it up.


2 pounds cooked ground beef
1 package chili seasoning
2 cans petite diced tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles
1 can pinto beans-rinsed and drained
1 can chili beans in sauce
1/2 white or yellow onion-chopped
Shredded Mexican cheese
Sour cream


Mix seasoning, beef, tomatoes, beans, and onion in a crockpot.  Cover and cook on low for 4 hours or high for 8 hours.  Serve topped with cheese, sour cream, and Fritos.

EASY! That's what I'm talkin about.

The Nursery Reveal

People apparently have parties to reveal everything about their baby (sex reveal parties, name reveal parties, baby's got all 10 fingers reveal parties, etc), so I'm thinking of making a huge deal out of revealing little THT's nursery.

JK. Sickening.

Here are some pictures instead :)  Its a little plain, but, I figured I might as well save my time, energy, and money to redecorate in about 3 years when little T will have an opinion on what his room looks like.

July 12. Planned. One baby. Yes, I'm sure of that.

Oh my GAH! 

I should have made a t-shirt that said all of the above.  I have been asked 8 jillion times those same first it was kinda of cool like "hey, it actually looks like a bun in the oven, not that I went a little overboard at Dunkin Donuts."  Now its kinda like "do you really need to know? Do I even know you? Can I rub your belly, too?"  

With less than a month until baby T hopefully arrives* let's reflect:

*ahem, baby T, I'd like your birthday to be the 4th of July...hint hint.

I'm like 5 minutes pregz! Sweet, time to show off that bloat.
Bought my first maternity shirt; totally unneeded at this point but hey, it was like totes cute.  I'll prob wear it unpregnant, too.

Obvi pushing out my stomach so it looks like baby not bloat (note: this was in February, baby was the size of like a tortellini noodle at this point).

Woohoo, a little bun in the oven! 
Skipped a few weeks.  Defs a baby in there. Now is about the time all the stupid questions get asked ("are you sure there's only one in there?!" "Uh no, I'm obviously going for octo-mom 2012." I mean really people, come on.)

I believe when I texted this one to my homegirls the caption was "fresh out of birth classes and scared sh*tless." Yeah, at least the hospital looks like a hotel.

Why yes, I did swallow a watermelon.  Thanks for noticing.  Oh and yes, amazingly there is still only one baby in there! You can stop asking now.

Ok, so there's me.  Little T's room will be finished tomorrow! HOORAY. I mean I've only been trying to get it done for like 6 months now*

*note: we have Hopie to blame for this one...took homegirl like 8 weeks to find the "perfect" dresser and it will be delivered tomorrow.  

So in case you are all just dyingggg to see his room, which he won't even use for another few months, I'll put up pictures later this week.

Peace out.
