A Little of This, A Little of That

Portions of this blog post are related to cooking, hence the pic of the stockpot above (via Pioneer Woman). Not sure why I felt the need to explain the use of photography on my blog, but now you know. And I feel better.

Good mid-morning, beautiful bloggy friends! I had planned on writing about something fashion-related today, but felt more compelled to just talk randomness. All over the map, this post shall be...

- Let's start with a praise report...the weather in AR has finally cooled off! In fact, last night on my little evening stroll I almost got, dare I say, chilly! According to the weather app on my iPhone, this cripsy, cool awesomeness has no sign of stopping anytime soon and that makes me a happy camper. Yay fall...we're so glad you have arrived. Better late than never, fo' sho'.

-I have a ridiculous craving for soup right now because of the sudden arrival of frigid (but not really) temps...specifically tortilla soup or taco soup (I've heard it called both .) Do any of you have a semi-easy recipe for a good taco/tortilla soup? If so, PLEASE share! You can either post the recipe in the comments or shoot it to me in an email at askblondeambion@gmail.com

-Ok, so maybe we didn't beat 'Bama on Saturday, but I'm so proud of the way our boys played. The Hogs definitely held their own against the Crimson Tide and many people, (myself included), thought we might even beat them for awhile : ) Either way, win or lose, it was such a good game and fun SEC match-up!

-If any of you out there have super thick or coarse hair (like mine), I have found the Best. Conditioner. Ever. No lie, girls, it rocks my world in so many ways. It's called No Frizz Conditioner by Living Proof and you can buy it at The Mothership Sephora. The girl at the Sephora in Rogers told me it was the best stuff she'd ever used on her hair, (she also had super massive hair like me) and she wasn't kidding. True story- I didn't even have to Chi my hair after I washed and dried it this morning! Plus, it smells divine. Buy it now, ladies.

That's all for today. Stay tuned for tomorrow's post in which I'll delight you all in the story of my ongoing saga with a pesky crazed, stray cat that has taken over my life, my neighborhood and my sanity. You might want to pop some popcorn, it's gonna be a good 'un.

Hope your Monday is positively grand ; )

Be blessed, lovelies-

  11. Yummm yum, I have been wanting to make soup now, too! Let me know if you find some good recipes, because I'd love to try them out too!

    I SERIOUSLY thought y'all were going to beat Bama on Saturday. I wish you could've seen me cheering and screaming at the TV! I got a little too into the game when it wasn't even my team! I guess Arkansas is really the only other SEC team I'll even consider cheering for :)

    Okay, I'm totally going to go get this conditioner just from your recommendation. I have been looking everywhere for some good hair stuff, and this sounds right up my alley! I'll let you know how it goes!

    Happpppy Monday, sweet girl!

  19. I saw that brand at Sephora and really wanted to try the volumizing line since my hair has been so flat lately, but I didn't want to buy it without hearing some opinions first.
