Warm Wishes- Easy Crockpot Chili & 12 Cozy Spaces to Inspire

Hi Guys!  I’m popping in this weekend to share a delicious recipe and some cozy design inspiration!  Temperatures outside plummeted this week and it got me yearning for my favorite chili (as well as my couch, throw, and design magazines)!  My husband was introduced to this recipe by a college roommate–it was a family recipe. 5 years ago my husband signed us up to bring a pot of chili to our church’s Chili Cookoff.  I told my husband that since he signed us up he would need to be the one to make it!!:-)  He was actually excited about it because he had an idea to add a bit of barbeque sauce to the already awesome chili recipe. The Chili Cookoff was held on a Friday night so I decided I would go ahead and make it since my husband would only have time to swing by from work and pick us up.  I added the bit of barbeque sauce trusting my husband wouldn’t lead me astray. Well,  I  we won the Chili Cookoff that night!!:-)  Out of 30 pots of chili 6 judges concluded that ours was the best!…

Design 101- The Balance of Casual and Elegance

This past weekend my husband and I attended the wedding of one of his co-workers. It was a real treat since we don’t get out to go on dates as much as we should. For it being late June they had amazing weather for their outdoor wedding. It was held at 5:30pm when the sun wasn’t so intense and there was a nice gentle breeze making for an oh so lovely atmosphere. There was no else from my husband’s work there so out of the 135+ guests the only people we knew were the groom and his bride (that we had met once at a company get together). Anyways, it was kind of nice because we were able to just hangout, the two of us, at the reception.     As the other guests drank cocktails and socialized we took ourselves on a tour of the reception center soaking up lots of decorative eye candy.  It was tastefully decorated and I was very impressed with how well they were able to create a elegant space without sacrificing comfort. …
