National Soup Month: January

image credit.

Soup is one of my favorite foods, I LOVE it, and I've said it before... 
I could quite possibly eat it every day! 
It is hearty and good for your soul! 
But, did you know that January is National Soup Month?
Makes sense, since it's a great way to warm up during these cold winter months and perfect ammo for fighting the common cold (and influenza bug) that seems to kick everyone's butt this time of year!

The people of Personal Creations blog/website have put together some great facts on soup such as, "Americans eat more than 10 billion bowls of soup every year" and "Chicken Noodle is the top rated soup according to 2,000 Americans polled". The site also has a descriptive difference between stocks and broths which I was always unsure of! 
At the end it includes tips for creating that perfect bowl of deliciousness!
You can check out the post here.

Here are three soup recipes that I have featured here on Perfectly Scrubbed that you can check out:

(this is a LOVED by all who try it!)

What is your favorite kind of soup?
I would love it if you shared your recipes too! :)

Looks Lately v8.0

Hello? Remember me? 
I went a little M.I.A. as work pushed on, holiday gatherings came and went, and 2014 came to a close. I think the one thing that I hate about being a nurse is not being able to hold traditions in your family because you most often have to work major holidays (like Christmas). This year my husband and I started to make (what we can hopefully try to work out in years to come) our own tradition with a sushi date and driving around looking at Christmas lights on Christmas Eve. I hope that you were able to enjoy quality time with family and friends and are looking forward to what 2015 has in store. 
Tonight I am sharing a recap of some of the end of the year outfits. There are going to be a lot of them since it's been awhile since I did a post like this so bear with me, but I hope you enjoy! :)
