You know with the holidays approaching quickly food is on my mind (well okay, food is always on my mind, but at this time of the year even more so!). I'm thinking about what I'm planning to prepare for Thanksgiving and Christmas. My birthday is coming up, and then sometimes we're so busy I just don't want to cook, and so on those occasions I'm thinking about where we'll be eating out. But there are too many people that don't have the luxury to think of either of those things. They are just concerned about where and how their family will get their next meal. That is why I am pleased to partner with TangoTab for today's post.
I'm not really sure why or how, but do you notice the older you get the faster time seems to go by? I still can't believe my daughter is at college! It seems like just the other day we dropped her off; worried about how she would fare.

I'm really having a difficult time getting my head around the fact that Halloween is at the end of this week.This is just our second October in Texas, and I still can't believe that I'm walking around in tank tops, shorts and flip flops. Seeing my friends' in Canada's photos yesterday on Facebook with snow on the ground, made me hop on my Samsung S4 phone powered by Family Mobile Walmart Best Plans to compare our weather to their weather. Because let's face it ya'll, you kind of have to take screenshots and flaunt it when it was 86 degrees here and only 37 degrees there.
Are you like me and find it difficult to get your suggested water intake each day? I have no problems drinking my fair share of coffee or pop, but water... that's a whole different story. Adding Crystal Light drink mixes is an easy fix that makes water more flavorful, but for me if the packages are not front and center when I'm opening the fridge, I'll reach for something else. So, I solved that problem by making my own Chalkboard Hydration Chart, where I can track my water intake daily/weekly AND have the Crystal Light packets close at hand, so no excuses!
This last week I was invited to the Dallas Lee Jeans Style Party at the NYLO in Plano, put on by Lee Jeans. I was able to bring a guest along and so (I dragged) my husband accompanied me. Really though, a date night out with food & drinks, the company of some of my favorite bloggers and where I could try on jeans, that's kind of like a trifecta in my books!
As most American families these days, we're all about getting the most bang for our buck. But that doesn't mean we want to sacrifice quality for price. That's why we've always enjoyed going to CiCi's Pizza. If you're not familiar with CiCi's, it's an all you can eat pizza buffet restaurant.
Because CiCi's listens to their guests, the feedback they were receiving from their customers inspired them to go back to the kitchen and create a better pizza expereince that is cheesier, zestier and tastier than ever before. This past week they invited some North Texas based bloggers to be among the first to try their "Better" pizza.
After blogging for six years and doing numerous recipes I put together a compilation of almost all of the chicken recipes on my blog that I've made or curated over those years. I didn't realize until I made this month's Foodie collection how much my family eats chicken!
Most if not all of them are fairly easy to prepare, and are kid friendly. I hope you find one or two in the collection that you enjoy.
