Five on Friday

Happy Friday the 13th! 

Baylor isn't playing this weekend {and I could care less about the Alabama vs. A&M game, blegh} so we are doing a ton of projects around the house. Namely? Putting together the crib that my parents, "Foxy" and "Bear" purchased for us! 

{Also? Ignore my dirty glass door, please!}

When I got home yesterday, I saw this huge box on our front porch and immediately got excited. Our poor UPS man. And my poor husband who had to drag it into the house! He was not amused, obviously! 

My dad posted this picture on Instagram and Facebook yesterday of my cousin Robert and me when we were two and two and a half. My dad captioned it, "The mother of my soon-to-be grandson and my flight instructor - May 6, 1989." That made me tear up a little bit! 

For the longest time, my aunt and uncle lived in the house behind us and Robert {and his sister, Rebecca} and I would play together. Robert and I were always in the same grade at the same schools growing up, and we're a mere six months apart. It was so fun growing up with cousins so close in age! In fact, Robert and I called each other "Robby" and "Bobby" when we were little. His makes sense since his name is Robert, but I guess I needed something that rhymed with Robby so we called me Bobby! Ha! 

What's crazy is that I actually remember the day this picture was taken. 

I made Cooking Light's Beefy Corn and Black Bean Chili {and cornbread} last night, except I always substitute the beef for turkey. Y'all, it is seriously one of our favorite meals. I doubled it with the full intent of freezing the rest for when the baby gets here, but Brandon begged me to keep it in the fridge so we can eat on it this weekend. 

I'm so excited to go home tonight, curl up on the couch and eat this chili. Even though it's still in the high 90s here. Oh well. 

Lately I have been dying over pie. Like, craving it to the point that I am about to whip something up and hoard it for myself. And it doesn't help that I'm pinning all of these great pie recipes, either. 

I can't stop ordering things from Etsy! It is an addiction and needs to stop. It totally doesn't help that they store my credit card information so all I have to do is click, "Purchase," either. Ha! But seriously. I have got to stop. :)

Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend! Happy Friday...FINALLY!



  1. That chili looks delicious and I might have to try making it soon! Also, I totally feel you on Etsy! I was reading a blog about twenty minutes ago with a fall wishlist and I clicked through on a cute item and I ended up ordering it from the Etsy hop. Whoops!! They make it so easy for me to order and so hard for me to practice restraint!

  2. I love these five! That chili looks great and maybe we'll make some this weekend. Football and chili go so well together. My hubby is so excited for football these days that it might be a nice surprise for him (he usually cooks). I'm having the same problem with etsy! And I also have been purchasing way too many things from Very Jane. Hope you have a great weekend!
