Chili in the Summer?!

Hey ya'll! Happy Monday! Crazy that here we are full-fledged into summer and all the men-folk in my house are requesting CHILI for dinner tonight! What?! I don't think I've ever made chili from April-August before. It's not a hard and fast rule, mind you, but chili is usually a dinner reserved for those crisp fall days or the deep freeze days of winter...but not today! The temp is pushing 90* and all the boys were chili-hungry. So what's a Mama to do? Make chili of course! So I am sitting here getting used to the idea of having a piping hot bowl of chili for dinner tonight, topped with sharp cheddar and onions, and eaten with Fritos Scoops, not spoons :-)) It's starting to sound kinda good...maybe I should put on some sweats and turn the A/C way down....

On another note...IT'S 5 DAYS UNTIL RACE DAY!!! The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure will take place in downtown St. Louis this Saturday. My mom, sisters, and I are participating, with 3 of us walking and 1 of us running...I'll let you guess who's running. ;-) I am looking forward to all the stuff going on and just being a part of it all as a SURVIVOR! It's not too late to donate for this fabulous cause and hopefully someday soon we will have a cure for breast cancer and no one will ever have to face this diagnosis again! My personal donation page can be found here.
Have a great rest of your Monday, friends! <3

Chili - y'all are crazy! I have some chili in my freezer that's been there a little while that Ross keeps wanting for dinner. I just can't get around it though - it's so hot and humid down here!!

Haha, I brought chili for lunch today! But at least at work, its way too air conditioned so its cold enough to have it :) Yay, I'm so glad race day is finally here. I will be thinking about you on Saturday, hope you all have a great time and celebrate for all that you've been through, you are still here and you are holding your head high!
