Family Picture time!!

I have been so busy lately I haven't taken the time to post some new family pictures! Here are a
few. Below is Bella, (yes she has grown alot), Lauren and Mom took her to an event here in town called Bark in the Park! My hubby said she looked miserable in this dress, but he was at a Georgia game, so she became a princess and can u believe she didn't win! :( but it was a beautiful day and we had fun!

Lauren did make it in the local paper with this picture! I think Bella is ready to go home!
Here if I could read her mind she would be say, Mom why don't I have a stroller! Why am I walking and this dog rides!
This is Pebbie, Bella's partner in crime! As you can see she was extremely relaxed with Bella gone for the day!

Nature Valley Nut Cluster's GiveAway!!

Its a Give Away made possible by MyBlogSpark! I am very happy to be chosen by this company! (Sorry about the picture quality. My camera was acting up.)
When I received my package I was amazed at the regular size packages that was sent, it wasn't samples sizes, which many times when you receive a new product in the mail this is what you normally will receive.

I have enjoyed using my new water bottle, it does keep things cold. My daughter has claimed the flashlight for her car, pretty neat since it's not ran on batteries!
Read below for a breakdown of things you could win!
You will win a really cool side shoulder back pack, 4 packages of Nature Valley Granola nut clusters, a metal water bottle, flash light (not battery ran, its the windup kind, really neat for your car in case of emergencies) and small binoculars!
The NutClusters we all enjoyed, my husband preferred the Almond package, but my favorite was the Cashew.
My daughter liked the Peanut one, which is amazing, she doesn't like any kind of nuts, but she liked the granola mixed in which gave it a special flavor and texture.
All you need to do is tell me why you like to be outside in the great outdoors. What makes it so special to you and your family. The best story will win!

Deadline is November 14, so start commenting now! The give away package will be sent directly from Blog spark once a winner is chosen.

Spicy Skillet Chicken! ( One Pot Meal)

Welcome to Thursday One Pot Meal! Today enjoy Spicy Skillet Chicken!
1 to 2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 can (11 oz) Green Giant® Mexicorn® whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, undrained
1/3 Old El Paso® Thick 'n Chunky salsa
2 cups hot cooked rice

1. In small bowl, mix chili powder, salt and pepper; sprinkle evenly over both sides of chicken breasts.
2. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).
3. Stir in beans, corn and salsa. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer 3 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are hot. Serve with rice.

Make a quick chicken tortilla sandwich by cooking just the chicken breasts as directed.

Microwave briefly to melt cheese.
This is great served with Mexican cornbread!
