As we all are well aware by now, we are facing a very big decision next month. This is a decision that causes me to lose trust in any person that thinks either option is a sure thing. Let’s be honest here, neither Trump nor Clinton is the kind of stand up citizen we can admire or brag about as our leader. But, somehow we got ourselves into this situation and we have no choice but to see it through – as my mom would say: you made your bed, now you must lie in it.
As we find ourselves lying in this scandalous, muddy, and depressing shell of a bed, our social media is full – overfilled with ‘facts’. I can’t believe I am using that word, even in air quotes; it’s a word so inferior to what is being used that I feel I am doing actual facts an injustice by using it. Nicole popped our political cherry a few weeks back with her piece expressing support for Hillary Clinton, I don’t disagree with her, but today I am not here to speak for any particular candidate, I am here to speak out against memes.

Are you familiar with Stitch Fix? Yes, No, Maybe? Ok Well first I'll tell you it's a clothing subscription company. I'll tell you 'My Story' and then I'll explain all of the details and if it's worth it.
So a while back I had looked into Stitch Fix. I had read about Stitch Fix on Pinterest and over at one of my fave blogs Living in Yellow. She is a big believer in Stitch Fix and just opened her 52nd Fix! I checked out the site, I created an account, filled out my Style Profile and I closed the window. I checked back and waffled and closed the window. And then finally in February 2016 I pulled the trigger.

I’m not a big fan of Halloween, I don’t really ‘get’ the October obsession, and I HATE pumpkin spice (yep, I said it).
I do love hoodies though… and FOOD! – and we all know that fall equals comfort food.
My favorite fall comfort food? – Soups! - Especially the creamy ones.
I must not be the only one around here that digs soups because I didn’t find this particular recipe, my step-daughter did. And the minute she tagged me in Gimme Some Oven’s video Facebook post, this soup immediately snagged a spot in our meal plan – and we are so glad that it did!!
The consistency was perfect, the ingredients’ flavors melted together deliciously, and it was easy!
Wanna try it out for yourself? – Here’s everything you need to know.

As you may have noticed, I (we) LOVE #colors, especially #rainbow!
Therefore, it's probably not hard to believe that this was my gum of choice #backintheday.
So fun! ...except there was that part where the flavor only lasted for about 30 seconds. :(
