Let's Get Chili!

Today was a great day. A friend and I attended the International Chili Cookoff! 
It was only a 45 minute drive and we had a great time. Once we paid our 5 dollar entrance fee, we got to go around and test all the chili's. People came from everywhere! There was people making chili from all across America. We even saw one guy from South Dakota. The best chili maker gets a grand prize of 40,000 dollars! Now, that's got to be some good chili to win that!

Afterwards we headed to the shopping center where my friend was such a good sport and let me shop my little heart out. I found the most amazing sweater for the winter! It's from Abercrombie. It's comfy, oversized, warm and not to mention cute (at least I think so). 


It was a very good Saturday!
