YOU GUYS. Did you hear Friends is coming back for a comeback season?! (Ok, so I’m now hearing this is a rumor but it was still exciting when I read this!!!) I watched Friends off and on the entire time it was on air and I’m SO excited to hear this. *squeals* I hope they don’t ruin it, though & I hope that all the same cast members are back. Can you just hear your significant other groaning?? Oh, the episodes they’ll have to endure with us ;)

Have you heard about these crazy WordPress sites getting attacked? They’re starting to freak me out! Every time I log into my WordPress dashboard and if it’s a teensy bit slow, I start to freak out and think I’m being hacked. This whole thing makes me feel so uneasy but at the same time, it’s ironic that just last week, I signed up for Sucuri Security and I hope it was money well spent. Protect my site from those hackers! It’s beyond me why people do these types of things. I mean, what kind of “reward” do they get? You know what else is ironic? Going into a sunglasses store and picking up a pair of sunglasses to try on and falling in love with them. And then you realize it’s $480 so you continue to try on other pairs of sunglasses with no luck because you’ve already fallen in love and you can’t get the first ones you tried on out of your head. Nothing compares to it, so you’re shit out of luck and leave sulking because there’s no way you can justify $480 for a pair of sunglasses. No way! It always happens to me – the first thing I try on is always an exorbitant amount of money and of course it always looks SO GOOD. Why?? The shopping gods have it against me.

This past weekend, Jason & I went beer & wine shopping for our wedding with my parents. Now, Jason & I probably have beer & wine to last us 4 years just hanging out in our basement right now. That, or we look like alcoholics or we’re about to build a bar in our basement. We had so many people come up to us to ask, “what’s your address?,” “what time should we show up?,” and “can I come over?” – funny, but obnoxious after the first 10 people.

I know that it’s pretty much Spring now and not a lot of people think about soup for warm weather, but I had this sitting in my backlog and I kept delaying posting it because I had all these other recipes I wanted to share first. I figured I might as well share it now when the evenings are still a bit cool because I know when summer time rolls around, the last thing I’ll be thinking about is a large pot of hot soup. So, now or never for this corn chowder!

I LOVE sweet corn. It’s probably one of my favorite vegetables and I can eat ear after ear after ear of corn in the summer time. Corn anything makes me swoon. This corn chowder is a cinch to whip up since you put everything in a crockpot and let it slowly cook and develop flavor. It’s wonderful!

  1. I would love a Friends reunion so much, but I don’t think it will ever happen! I watched an interview Lisa Kudrow did not long ago and she seemed annoyed with all the Friends questions, like she was over it. Boo.

    I’m in Seattle right now and it’s cold and rainy and I want a big bowl of this chowder!

  2. I’m actually a little scared that they are going to ruin Friends and it won’t be the same! I’ve seriously almost stressed over this: “Emma is like 11 now, and what about Monica and CHandlers twins? And Joey moved to LA for that spin off that didn’t work? What will become of them!” I know. Lame. It’s sort of like seeing your high school crust after 10 years and realizing that he really isn’t as great as you though, I know WAY over thinking this! BUT I know that chowder will be awesome so I’ll just console myself with some that!

  3. I love any chance to make a delicious dinner in our crock pot! Sweet corn is my favorite summer ingredient!

    Yes I heard that Freinds rumor too- I feel like nothing can really compare to the original but I’m optimistic!!

  4. Friends is literally the best show of all time. I know basically every ep by heart… thats probably not good to admit. This new season could either be really good or realllllly bad! I hope they do it well! :) Ill just have to slurp up this soup to make me feel better ;)

  5. I’ve always wondered if they’d come back with a movie. It would be AWESOME!!

    I want a chowder for lunch now. This, to be precise :)

  6. It looks so good, Julie! And you’re right, there’s still time to enjoy this warm meal during this slowly arriving spring!

  7. Looks fantastic, Julie! I’m always on the hunt for new crockpot recipes. Adding this to my list!

  8. I love chowder. And love it even more when you can dump everything into one pot and let it slow cook! Yay for these recipes! Lovely post.
