Let's talk about Poop

Ah yes, as a mom of two it is required I have a post regarding this topic right? 

But I'm going to put a little spin on it.  I'm not going to bore you with stories of my kid's blowouts, the colors of the rainbow they've portrayed, nor the rooms they have cleared out with their smells. 

I'm going to tell you instead about my poop, or lack there of.  I'm not talking about constipation either, but rather lack of time to even go.  Veteran mothers will tell you all about how time flies as a mom and be sure to get your sleep as a new mom.  They might even tell you to remember to brush your teeth every day.  I never had anyone remind me to take time to go to the bathroom. 

Seriously, there are days in my house where I literally don't have time to take a crap.  Between a 10 month old's needs, my 4 yr. old questioning me, my furbaby needing to be let out to do his own business, I come in a dead last to use the facilities. Then if I do get to go, I have to make sure that my baby is quarantined and no where near stairs and then my 4 yr. old is usually on the other side of the door wanting a play by play.

I think I now know why when my husband needs to do his business that he takes what feels like I could watch a sitcom during.

I hope I didn't lose any of you as readers with this topic.  I'm just a mom who hopefully isn't alone in wanting to find more hours in the day to do what needs to be done.

I realized I never updated my Halloween Pictures.

My little guys were just adorable this Halloween and boy did they haul in the treats.

Alex dressed up as Spider Man for trick-or-treating at preschool and had a great time going around the classrooms getting goodies.

For actual trick-or-treating, Alex went as a fireman and Cameron went as his faithful companion, a dalmatian.  I have to pat myself on the back for decorating the wagon up as a fire truck. 

I liked getting into the spirit of the season.  It is such a let down when the trick-or-treaters that do come around have no costumes or manners :(

Good thing I got this up before the next holiday!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken

I love spicy Buffalo Chicken and this tasty recipe was a snap to make.

I found this on Pinterest originating from here but below is my own variation and recommendations.

3-4 Chicken Breasts (I used fresh)
Franks Red Hot Sauce (regular or buffalo)
Dried Ranch Dressing Mix
2-3 tbsp. butter

Place Chicken in Slow Cooker
Pour approx. 1/2 bottle of sauce on top
1/4 to 1/2 of the dressing mix.  (I used 1/2 and found it to be too salty)

Cook on low for 6-8 hours

Shred up the chicken, add more sauce or a little water if necessary, but the chicken will shred up perfectly.
Put butter on top for about 15 more minutes, stir and then serve

**I think adding a little cream cheese to this recipe also might be a nice addition, but I'd melt that in the slow cooker prior to adding the chicken**

This is so yummy and very versatile to serve with anything.  I especially love it mixed in a cool salad with a little ranch dressing.  With the Super Bowl coming up too this would be a…

Pirate Party Game - Ring Toss

Why didn't I think of this?!  I came across this from Hostess with the Mostess site, my go-to party planning inspiration blog.  What an awesome game and pretty inexpensive if you were a savvy shopper and picked up the pirate hooks for $1 at Target along with some swim diving rings also in the $1 spot.

This would've been perfect for Alex's 4th Birthday Pirate Party where we played "Pin the Hook on Captain Hook".
