Weekend Update

Happy Fall Y'all!

I was absolutely thrilled when I brought in the mail Friday afternoon and discovered I had received a package. It was my Be the Change cuff I'd ordered a couple of weeks ago from Threads by The Shine Project. 

I'm absolutely obsessed with my cuff and can't wait to order more pieces! The coolest part of The Shine Project is that all the jewelry is made by inner city students as a way for them to make money to help pay for college. So not only did I get this super adorable cuff with part of my all time favorite quote (be the change you wish to see in the world), but I helped someone else.

Sunday night for dinner we tried out a new recipe I found on Pinterest, crockpot Hawaiian chicken. You just put 2 pounds of chicken, 1 cup pineapple juice, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 1/3 cup soy sauce in a crockpot to cook for about 7 hours.

We paired it with some mashed sweet potato patties, and it was delicious! I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fun, simple chicken recipe.

Later I celebrated the first day of fall (AKA the end of bikini season and the beginning of over sized sweaters and leggings season) by enjoying some ice cream while I watched the Emmys and got a jump start on the week's blogging.

Cool Mint and chocolate chips!

I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
