Slice of Life Sundays: 10-26-14


Happy Sunday friends. Hope you’re having a great weekend. I’ve been busy doing some much needed cleaning around the house. I was sick most of last week with a cold so not much got done.

Yesterday I had lunch with my sister and went shopping for a Halloween costume. It’s so frustrating when the “adult” size costumes are so tiny and they don’t have plus sizes available. I’m left to do a DIY costume. I’m going for a Day of the Dead look but I don’t want to wear a dress or skirt. Instead I’ll be wearing leggings and a tutu. I have to go to the store and get some tulle to make the tutu. I hate dressing up for Halloween and only do so for a friend. This is the third year that we are attending her party where costumes are mandatory. I’m still not sure if I’ll be painting my face or wearing the mask I picked up. I’m a spur of the moment type person which is not good because if I’m going to paint my face I need to practice it.

I have this chili stew in the crockpot right now. It looks so good. I hope it tastes as good as it looks. This is the time of year when I want to make a lot of chili, soup and stews. There’s nothing more comforting. Do you have a favorite crockpot recipe? I’d love to hear what you’re loving.

You may have noticed that I’ve been slacking a little in the blogging department. I apologize for this but work has been keeping me busy and I’ve also been working behind the scenes on my Etsy shop. I used to have an Etsy shop selling key fobs but I let it go. It just wasn’t doing well. After a lot of encouragement from my best friend Kim I finally decided to open a shop again. I will mainly be selling stencils but would also like to offer some decals and artwork. I’m working hard on getting the listings ready before I launch the shop. I have tons of designs already done but it takes time to get the listings ready. I also like to test the stencils before I offer them for sale. I hope to be up and running the first week of November.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend :).

  2. I bet your Dawn of the Dead costume and tutu will be very cute! I don’t have a crock-pot recipe. In fact last time, I made myself some soup after a long bike ride and I told hubby there was extra if he wanted some soup. He said he already had soup and my response was “I don’t like that soup, I only like REAL soup.. you know, from a CAN” 馃槈 yep, that’s about the extent of my cooking most nights (his was from a box) 馃槈 Cristin
