New Vintage Pieces & a Recipe

Ya'll I'm eeking out over these cute necklaces!
I was so excited I couldn't wait to share them!
These 3 "happys" are already listed in the shop and over the next few days I 'll be listing more as I get them made up. But for now here's a peek...
Also, I mentioned the other day about a Taco Soup that I make.
We seriously have it probably every 2 weeks and guess what? It's a Weight Watchers Recipe.
Which is an added bonus, just sayin'.
When I had my first babe, my best friend made it and brought it to us after coming home from the hospital.
Isn't that such a blessing? The churches we've always been a part of have had that ministry where they try and send meals to the family for a week.That was always such a reliever to not have to worry about cooking during that time. And I've gotten to bring meals over which I love cause' I get to be one of the first's to see the new little baby. And if I was really lucky I got to hold them too ;)
Ok..anywho... so here is what you'll need...

1lb ground turkey or lean gr meat
1 onion
1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
1 pkg Taco Seasoning
1 can Pinto Beans
1 can Chile Beans
1 can Corn
1 can Stewed tomatoes {Mexican Flavor}
1 can Stewed tomatoes {any flavor}
  Brown meat and onions, then drain. Mix Hidden Valley Ranch mix and taco seasoning into meat.
Then without draining the cans add all of the other ing. Simmer 1 hour.
This is delicious served with Fritos or Baked Tostitos chips.
Then we always put on the sour cream and shredded cheese.
Oh, and one more thing it's really more of a thick consistency.
Saying soup may make you think it's thinner or watery, but it's not.
Much love,


  1. okay ... i loved the camera necklace so much for a special someone ... that i bought it for their x-mas gift! thanks for posting! and i love taco soup we have it very often but mine isn't as healthy cause i load it up with sour cream, chips and cheese on top! ps... will i have the necklace by x-mas ... didn't think to look into that :) thank you mam!

  2. Oh I love the sewing necklace!! Really cute! I've been wanting to ask you how you like big cartel...as opposed to etsy. I'm thinking about finally working on my "shop"!
    I hope you and your family are well :)

  3. Those are the cutest necklaces!!!! We make taco soup too, but I don't think adding all the extras makes ours very healthy:-)
