Oh how I need a weekend of cozy. Good news is the youngest got cleared for football but they have a bye tonight so this girl is getting all cozied up for movie night. Sunday calls for rain so just maybe I'll be cozied up again. How bout you sweet friends?

1. The "Hat"
So this pic is old but the hat is back in style and I "still" have it!! The beautiful Amy Ann of Straight A Style showed off her engineer hat on Wednesday and it reminded me of mine. They're calling it lots of things like a baker boy hat, fiddler cap, etc but whatever you call it, they are cute and comfy!

Hunter green is coming back! In the mid 90's, I had hunter green kitchen countertops and a white and Hunter checkered tile backsplash. I had Hunter green flannel button down that I wore with light washed pegged jeans.  Loved it but then it waned and I'm not sure I owned anything in hunter green for years.. Until this gorgeous Chelsea28 lace top.

After I received it, I was looking at my stack of jeans and getting ready to grab black ones when I spotted my grey ones again and thought it paired so pretty with the green. Add in my two favorite accessories, the leopard clutch and pointy toe black pumps and it just felt right.

Flowy tops are my favorite. I just don't enjoy wearing tight around my tummy tops like I did in the 90's but I sure am glad Hunter Green is making a comeback!

I sure do love chicken soup but rarely make it because I leave it up to my mama who makes the best. However, this last weekend was so rainy and dreary and we just wanted some soup to soothe the soul. I decided I wanted to cook it in the crockpot and it was perfect timing as my dear friend Carlee from Cooking with Carlee, is hosting Crocktober with a Link-Up of all kinds of Crock-Pot and slow cooker recipes. and this whole week she is showcasing Choctoberfest...all chocolate recipes! 

I love soup so much so my love of soup bowls goes hand in hand with that. I almost forgot about these soup bowls I got a few years ago from Amazon as they are so pretty for Fall. This time of year gives me all the soup feels although, if I'm being honest, I could eat soup all year round. Mr. Nine does not like noodles so our youngest and I gobbled this up, but you could...gasp...make this without noddles. I'm not a huge fan either but I do like a few 
in my chicken soup.

This Soulful Chicken Soup really did soothe our souls and it made just enough for me to take a couple bowls of it to work and return the favor by sharing some with my mom. 
What you'll need

2-3 pounds bone-in chicken (I used 2 thighs & 2 breasts)
3 medium carrots, cut in rounds
2 cups celery cut in 1/2 inch pieces
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 Tablespoons good chicken base
1 bay leaf
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
6 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
2 cups wide egg noodles
3 Tablespoons finely chopped parsley
1/2 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Place chicken and all the ingredients except noodles, parsley and lemon juice in a 6 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours or until chicken is very tender and starts to separate from the bone. Remove the chicken, dice or shred and return the meat to the slow cooker. Stir in the noodles and parsley. Cover and cook on High for 20 minutes or until noodles are tender. Stir in the parsley and lemon juice. Serve immediately and garnish with leftover parsley.
