My fav shirt

So today I have to share my new favorite shirt in case you need a new favorite shirt.


My mom and I made a quick trip to Target Saturday before the AU/GA game and she picked up the shirt in navy.  I had to go back Sunday night and get the grey.  It is so comfy and can be dressed up or dressed down.  Today I wore it with a button up underneath and a big necklace.  Before leaving the house this morning I realized Dutch and I were both wearing grey and green.





I think I'm going to go back and get the navy.  It can be my "Auburn" shirt for this season.  Which by the way how amazing is Auburn this year 10-1?  Dutch got to roll Toomer's Corner for the first time after the Tennessee game.  We called our families and told them to watch on the TC webcam.  So fun.


This was Dutch's 20 week photo on Sunday.  Surprisingly this camo outfit is one of my favs on him, and add tiny little loafers.  Recipe for adorableness.

Stockings

When Eric and I got married I made us "forever" stockings.  Well I don't really love them anymore and now with Dutch I wanted us sto all have matching stockings.  I started my search in September because I wanted to make sure they arrived in plenty of time to have monogrammed if needed.  I settled on these from Zulily. I can't decide if I want to get our names or monogram on them.  What do you think?


Since Zulily is a flash sale site, they are no longer avaialble but I am pretty sure the brand is Chooty and Co.  While I do love them, I've since realized that I was looking too early, retailiers are just starting to put out their holiday items and there are a lot more choices now.  

Eric's mom makes everyone in the family the Bucilla felt stockings and my mom  makes everyone their own stocking.  I can only aspire to be that awesome and maybe one January I will start on making our homemade stockings.

I really like the idea of getting stockings and gifts off of etsy, love to support those small shops.  When I started my search there wasn't much variety but now there are tons of choices on etsy. 
These are the other stockings that were in the running.

These burlap stockings from the etsy shop Holiday Home Decor.

Today on GroopDealz there is a great deal on monogram burlap stockings.
 
 
 
Another site that has a few cute options was Personal Creations.com.  I bought Dutch's Christmas PJ's from them and they are super cute.  Little butt flap that says Dutch's First Christmas, so cute!  Do you have forever stockings?

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Several years ago one of our supper club friends introduced me to her Chicken Enchiladas.  After that it was over, these have been made millions of times for new babies, new houses and just good measure.  If you need something quick to take to a new mom or a friend that is moving try these out.  They also freeze well. Before Dutch was born and I was eating dairy (r.i.p. dairy) I would make a batch of these and individually wrap in saran wrap and freeze.  Put one in the fridge in the morning to thaw and warm up for lunch.  Perfect!


CHICKEN ENCHILADAS

1TBS Butter
1 medium onion chopped
1 (4.5oz) can green chilies drained
1 (8oz) package of cream cheese, cut up
3 1/2 cups of boiled shredded chicken
8 8" tortillas
1 package of shredded fiesta cheese

Preheat oven to 350*
Melt butter and saute onion.  Add chilies and saute.
Stir in cream cheese and chicken.  Cook until cream cheese melts.
Put 3 TBS of chicken mixture in tortilla.
Place seam side down in greased 9x13 dish.
Bake until cheese melts.

(I wasn't sure when these would be eaten so I just sprinked cheese on, didn't bake)

Weekend Recap

Hey y'all!  How was your weekend?  The only bad thing about our's was that it ended.  But I've never been a fan of the fall time change.  This year it is even worse because a certain 4 month old is having a hard time adjusting.  I know it has only been 1 day and I need to give him time but I'm so worried that he will never sleep past 5 am again.  Any tips or suggestions that worked for you getting your babies adjusted to the time change?

Like I said we had a great weekend.  Saturday was Eric's birthday, he turned 38.  When we met he was turning 27 and I thought he was sooo old.  Time flies.  Anyway we started the day early with Dutch's 4 mo pictures.  By 9:30 we were finished with that.  When we got home I gathered some pretty leaves and plopped him down for a pic.  He was over the pics by then. :)

We just hung out the rest of the day.  We walked to Taco Bell for lunch, if you walk there that means it isn't bad for you.  Then the Auburn game came on and we went out to eat for Eric's birthday.   Yea Auburn won!  We are now 8-1 and hopefully will go to a good bowl game.  
Dutch says Happy Birthday and War Eagle!


Yesterday evening we had supper at some friends super cute "shack" in the country.  It was so much fun to get together with everyone.



Sack races and bobbing for apples for the big kids.  Look at this beautiful scenery.


 I always think Dutch looks old and big but he looks like such a baby in this picture.  Everybody's happy. ha!

All night I was so thankful for the group of friends we have.  Having a baby added to the crazy mix of kids is so fun. 


 I've wanted a silhouette photo for a long time. When Dutch and Eric were by the pond the light was perfect and I snapped this with my iphone.  I think my heart my explode.
