I’m back today with my November Currently post. I always enjoy updating y’all on my life happenings.
Everyone has been talking about how great American Eagle jeans are and I really needed some new jeans! I was going to order online, but I was worried about sizing. So, I went into the store and I was excited that they were Buy 1, Get 1 Half Off! Yeah! I was only going to get 2 pairs… but, eek. I just loved them so much that I walked out of there with 4 pairs. I got a regular denim wash, dark wash, dark wash distressed and a black pair. Yay for new jeans! I went with the hi-rise jeggings, because the lady said those were on trend right now even more than the skinny jeans! They actually had all of the jeggings out at the front of the store and the skinny denim selection was all the way in the back. The jeggings are nice in that they fit all the way down the leg and the hi-rise helps to hold in any muffin top you may have. And, if you’re a mom and aren’t a fitness queen YOU HAVE SOME muffin top, right?!
Autumn’s 9th Birthday
My little girl is turning 9 on Tuesday. I can’t believe my YOUNGEST now is almost in the double digits. It really makes me want to have another! I have been preparing for her birthday and she’s been wanting these JoJo bows. There is the dancer/YouTuber, etc. named JoJo that is a 14 year old that makes and sells her own bows and has a bow line at Claire’s. They are really big, Southern belle style bows and they sell for $17 a pop! Although, I have heard you can find them at Five Below stores for $5!
MUST Try Fall Crock Pot Recipe!
When we have busy weeks, I try to make crock pot dinners! I tried the BEST crock pot recipe that I think I’ve ever, ever made this week. Frugal Foodie Mama Slow Cooker Apple Butter Pork Chops. SO good. You can find the recipe in my Pin Board: ‘This Weeks Meals: As Seen on IG Stories‘. The Creamy Velveeta Cheesy Chicken Chili crock pot dish is also delicious! Be sure to follow this Pin Board if you don’t want to miss out on any recipes I try… or, just follow me on Instagram Stories!
This month I read one book.
I have always loved The Body Shop, especially their cult status Tea Tree Oil! I was beyond excited when they sent me their new Pumpkin Vanilla products! They asked me to share a little about what my senses think of the fall… and, I would have to say that the fall is one of my favorite seasons and there are so many smells, sounds and sights associated with it! My fondest memory was the birth of my daughter, who I even named Autumn! But, lately I’ve been all about pumpkin spice everything! I love the fall flavored coffee drinks, such as pumpkin spice, s’mores, etc. and I enjoy drinking them in my fall mugs. Apple cider is also tasty… can you tell I am big on fall drinks? I’m also about everything cozy. I am reading a book about hygge right now and all things cozy!
Home gating is the new tailgating, it is so easy to stay home and enjoy a delicious spread of foods than all the hassle it can take to get to a game. FarmRich makes it easy with their large selection of appetizers. Recently, we enjoyed their Mozzarella Bites and Original Meatballs at home.
Feast Vox Box
I received the Feast Vox Box recently and I’ve been enjoying all of these tasty products right before Thanksgiving! I made a mac and cheese topped with the French’s Crispy Jalapeño and it was delicious! I also received Del Monte Fresh Cut Golden Sweet Whole Kernel Corn, Tim Tam® Biscuits in Dark Mint,
Country Crock® Unsalted Buttery Sticks and Bigelow® Benefits Ginger & Peach Herbal Tea and in Lemon & Echinacea Herbal Tea. I’m looking forward to trying the rest of these products! I received this Vox Box free and I am sharing my honest opinion on these products.
