A few fun finds...

First of all, before I forget, go enter this week's giveaway !  One lucky reader will win one of Fabric & Handle's brand new Tote Bags!  Lucky!

Now, on to the good stuff....

Favorite recipe of the week:  Pioneer Woman's Italian Chicken Soup

This recipe makes enough to feed an army {seriously, we were centimeters away from a big mess....make sure you have a BIG stockpot.}, and it's perfect for the colder months.  Good old fashioned comfort food.

Favorite new cocktail:  Caipirinha
Our neighbor makes these, and they are the best!  Anything with limes and rum {in this case Cachaca} is alright with me.  I'd never heard of a caipirinha until they moved in, but apparently it's the national cocktail of Brazil.  


Okay, I know it says "a few" fun finds...but I think that's all I've got!  I mean, I've been searching around for something else to share, but that kinda defeats the purpose right?  I mean, if I'm just posting something to be posting it, what good is that?  

In other news, Jon and I went for a run last night....together.  I don't think that's ever happened before.  It was kinda sad too.  For being a former marathoner and a former half-marathoner, we were sucking wind pretty bad.  But hey, at least we were fighting through the misery together, and without getting in a fight!  We're  I'm notorious for picking a fight during exercise.  Poor Jon.
