Currently November

My favorite month!  I love November for several reasons.  First, school is in full swing. Second, I love cold weather clothes.  Finally, I love the anticipation of the upcoming holidays!  I'm linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy Fourth Grade for November's Currently.

Listening... to girls giggle.  My youngest daughter is having a slumber party.

Loving... that it's November and I have so many things to be Thankful for this year.  Here are a few.

My family, friends, pets, students, nieces and nephews, new sister-in-law, IU basketball, comfy shoes, my blog, and all that Teachers Pay Teachers has allowed me to do!!  It's be a great year!

Thinking... I really need to Fall clean but instead I went shopping today.  In my defense, my daughter needed new dance shoes and there's always tomorrow to clean.

Wanting... next weekend to get here!  My husband and I are going with six other couples on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail next weekend in honor of a friend's 40th birthday.  We haven't been on a couples weekend in ages so I'm so excited!

Needing... to have a giveaway.  I'm planning a big giveaway for the weekend of Black Friday through Cyber Monday.  I'm so close to 1,000 TpT and blog followers, so I want to celebrate and hopefully meet that milestone by December.  Stay tuned!!!

A yummy pin...  I know everyone thinks about pumpkin this and pumpkin that during the month of November, so I decided to pin a yummy non-pumpkin pin.
My family LOVES white chicken chili with a southwestern kick!  This recipe is excellent.  The only change that I make to the recipe is to add a can of beer to the chili.  Don't ask me why but it really adds to the flavor.  We also like to eat ours with tortilla chips.  Enjoy!


  1. That chili looks soooo yummy! I'm definitely gonna have to make that this week!! :) Glad to be your newest follower! :)

  4. The chili sounds great. It's starting to get cool in the evenings in East Tennessee. Had a fire in the stove for the first time this fall. Love these cool nights.
