I know, I know

I honestly have no idea what I do with my days anymore. All I know is I get home late fall into bed and repeat it all the next day. I am definitley the type of person who thrives on a busy schedule, but these last couple weeks have been a test! I have been CRAZY busy at work, and I finally for the first time in 3 years, feel like I am accomplishing something that helps the bottom line of the company :) My flag football team is in the semi-finals and I even managed to play last weeks game with a broken ring finger, (I know of all fingers, gasp, hahaha) from the game before. My chili was totally to die for!! Thanks for the helpful hints and suggestions, its was a total hit!! Albeit I did not win and neither did Mr. Man's green chili entry but there was not a drop left in that darn crock pot at the end of lunch. I travelled to Missouri to watch Mr. Man's beloved Sooners take on Mizzou and lets just say it was one heck of a long 11 hour car ride home after that game :( One of my good friends since kindergarten (not a typo) got married two weekends ago in a gorgeous ceremony and reception. It is still so wild to me that we are not boarding the school bus home and we are starting real life AKA marriages, babies, etc. Sooo wild!

so for no I am just trying to stop and enjoy the last couple days of fall before the first snow hits and I am spending my weekends on the ski slopes!! Can't wait for that by the way. I PROMISE you that I will update this blog and look for some fun pictures of the last couple of weeks of activities.

PS I'm thinking with the cold weather out there today, I"m going to have to make a pot of that delicious chili again! Num num num!

Well let's be honest here, I'm not exactly Betty Crocker, although I do try very very hard. So I need you all to help me with what you think is the tastiest, most yummy, best fall Chili you have ever made!! It would be greatly apprecitaed!! Plus, I totally need to beat the pants off of some of the more 'seasoned' chili cookers at my office. Thanks in advance!!!

Whats ahappenin'?

Hello out there!!! Sorry it has been a while, I feel like I am treading a ton of water just to keep from drowning...anyone else feeling that way?? Anyway, HAPPY OCTOBER!! We have had the strangest weather here in Colorado. I keep reading everyone's blogs and they are all wishing it would get cooler where they live. Surprisingly, here in Denver we are experiencing an Indian Summer. No joke it hasn't been below 80 degrees, with the exception of yesterday) at all yet this fall. Quite frankly, I am not complaining. Today I went and ate my lunch out on the patio of our office, and it was GLORIOUS!! Love that beautiful 75 degree (no humidity) weather in Colorado.

A little catch up to begin with:
-OU beat Texas: YEAH!!! Let me just tell you that it makes my relationship with Mr. Man that much better when those crazy Sooners beat their opponents :)
-I'm thinking I need to make some new fall wardrobe purchases, my clothes are pretty pathetic at the moment
-I'm going to start a cooking club that meets once a month with new yummy foods to try along with new recepies.
-One of my best friends since Kindergarten is getting married next week Whhhhhat!?? Crazy!
-I went to the circus last night!! I love being the only person within a group of 5,000 without a small child...I'm telling you it was some GOOD people watching! I honestly had no idea the circus was so trashy, all I remember is the yummy snow cones and trying to count how many clowns came out of the Volkswagen Beetle :)
-I have no plans this weekend (YES!)
-I'm putting myself on a new strict budget, which means the fall wardrobe may not be so fabulous :( I have to save my dollar bills!
-I have been try to get Mr. Man to buy tickets for us to go see Cavalia (awesome mix of a horse show and cirque du it)...sor far no such luck, but I won't give up :)

Those are about the only exciting, or non exciting for that matter, things going on in my life at the moment. What have ya'll been up to?
