Cameron's Nursery

We were team green, but I still think the nursery came off with more of a boy feel to it than a girl. I'm over my hippo bedding from Dwell Studio (Target) but have no ideas what to do next. I want to keep the orange accents, the yellow/gold wall and the khaki colors. Any bedding ideas you have would be welcomed! I'm thinking I would like to make a decor switch before he moves into the daybed.

The furniture doesn't match and that drives me crazy, but it is what it is. The changing table/dry sink has to be in the room. My brother, myself, my niece, my nephew, and now my 2 boys have all used it as babies. I love it! The Ikea shelf is so useful, but it only matches the chair. The chair was a steal because it was a floor model. I HAD to have it. I couldn't justify spending so much on a crib, so the crib is what it is. I originally had my heart set on a $1200 Handmade Amish one, however I'm so glad I didn't go that route once Alex discovered it was perfect for teething.

I have artwork that matches the bedding that my Sister-in-Law painted for me, but I've been a horrible slacker and have yet to hang it up, mostly because again I'm kinda over the hippo.

I missed out on Pinterest for my wedding, my house hunting, and both of my babies. So not fair! (First world problems, lol)

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".
