A cute baby, a ripped blanket, and a whole lot of chicken!

A cute baby: The baby belongs to my awesome friend, Sarah. She was sweet enough to stop by my house last week and let me snuggle him. His name is Benton. Isn't he adorable? She is already such a cute little mommy!! I can't wait to see him grow up:)

A ripped blanket: The ripped blanket is a little bit of a long story. Anyone who was there for my bridal shower at Jordan's mom's house knows I was so excited to get a beautiful bed set from a kind neighbor. It was a really nice one and I knew, since it was from my registry, that it was expensive. I never expected someone to buy it, it was just fun to scan things. It looked like this....

I really did love it, but it kept falling apart. The bed skirt ripped many times and I had to sew it over and over. The actual comforter was already wearing out and we've only had it for two months. I was sad because I knew how much had been spent on it. Finally, on Saturday, when it ripped again I decided to do something about it. I took it back to the store and they were happy to give me store credit without a receipt. That meant I couldn't buy a visa gift card like I planned to do and have been doing with our other gift cards. After an hour of looking for something that would work I decided I couldn't pay that much for something when I could go to Target and get the one I really wanted. To end this long silly story I convinced the manager to let me buy the visa cards, I bought what I wanted at Target for less then half the price, and I will spend the rest on groceries:) Pictures don't do it justice. I am in love with the quality and the modern look.

A whole lot of chicken: My friend, Trina, asked me months ago if I would want to can chicken with her. I thought it sounded a little strange, but told her yes. I decided even if the chicken was gross, I would still get to hang out with her while we canned;) Last weekend we finally did it. Trina made the process really easy and the chicken ended up so yummy! I am so glad I learned how to do this. The first thing I made with it was chicken pillows. I was really tired that day and decided on doing something easy and a little less from scratch then usual. Tonight I am using it for Buffalo Chicken Pasta. The precooked chicken makes it so easy to cook. It just falls apart and becomes the perfect shredded yumminess:)! Thank you, Trina. PS. Don't mind my dirty oven. It is the first one I've had without a self-clean option and I haven't collected enough elbow grease to do anything about it.
