Get It Together!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! I have got to get it together! I am talking about my house! Ya'll it's bad! I can't seem to keep up, and when I do I can't seem to stay ahead...and I say I want another baby! ha!  My hat is off to you moms that have more than kiddo, especially my momma who had 6 of us, and our house was NEVER dirty! Come to think of it I do remember her vacuuming my room at 2am when I was a youngster.  Geez, 10:00pm rolls around I'm ready for bed!  Please mommas, tell me how you do it?!?  As soon as I get off work I am in play mode, super cookin', bath time, story time and then bed time...O then I have to clean my thanks! haha!

I will say, I have a couple ideas that I am really excited about.  Thank the Lord for pinterest! I have put my own spin on some things that I just cannot wait to share with you.  I have a wonderful idea for working mommas. Ekkk I feel like I am about to burst but I'm gonna wait to share so I can take pictures and have it all together.  I have always been an organized person, always, but once sweet Carter entered my world it's a lot harder to stay on top of things.  I will be staying up tonight (with my Diet Coke) working on my new little projects (yes, it's plural) so get ready for some organizing post in the next few days!

In the mean time, I'm trying to figure out Carters' little Halloween costume.  I know this sounds a little odd but I found the cutest pattern for a stop light costume but I can't talk Matt into that one sooo...plan b.  Do ya'll have any ideas? Carter hates wearing stuff on his head so it kinda limits me.  I need help!

O one more thing before I go...I have the best recipe mommas for your little ones and yourselves.  It's white bean soup(I guess I will call it that) and it is A-H-MAZING and also vegetarian! Call me a bad blogger but I don't have a picture for this one...ekkk sorry :(  Plus it's not like my food pictures are pretty anyway haha!  I can't get Carter to eat chicken so I revamped my white bean chicken chili recipe so I hope you enjoy.
White Bean Soup
*32oz of Vegetable Stock
*2 cans of northern white beans (drained and rinsed)
*1 can of white corn (or yellow) you could even use mexican corn if you want
*4oz green chilies (NOT drained)
*A couple stocks of celery (whatever your heart desires:) chopped
*Same consistency of carrots as celery. chopped
*1medium onion. diced
*1 lime
*Salt & Pepper
*1/2 tsp oregano
*1/2 tsp cumin
*1 tsp cilantro
*Cook your onions then once cooked add your stock, white beans, corn, celery, carrots, green chilies, oregano, cumin, & cilantro
*Bring to a boil
*Once you bring to a boil add the juice from a whole lime and add S&P. I let mine boil for about 5min to make sure my carrots are cooked all the way through.
*Simmer for about 20-30min 
*ENJOY! :)
A little thing I learned off pinterest...I would make double and what you don't eat freeze in silicone muffin pans.  Once frozen store in zipploc freezer bags.  Then you have the perfect amount to feed your little kiddo for lunch or even take with you to work :)
Here's my little love helping momma in the kitchen
