What's in the Bag?

I love bags.  Love them! I have quickly realized I have way too many, but in my defense, they all serve a specific purpose.

Here is my all purpose diaper bag from Skip Hop.
I carry in it a change of clothes, snacks, extra diapers, bibs, toiletries, and small toys.  This mostly stays in the car unless we are going to be out all day some place such as the zoo.  I love this bag and am trying to resist buying another bag this size since I really don't use it that much anymore.

This is my go to bag by JJ Cole. 
Simple. Little. Useful.  I love it and highly recommend it for any mommy-to-be.  Several diaper bags already come with something similar as an insert. It fits 2-3 diapers, a bib, changing cover (included), and a small wipes case. It fits easily into my regular purse and doesn't weigh me down.

Finally I have this awesome storage tote from Thirty-One. (Visit my girl Kacie to order one for yourself) Sturdy handles and a lot of depth make this a perfect carry all bag for all the gear when we go away for weekends.  It is also very multipurpose.


Head on over to Growing Up Geeky to see what other moms are saying about their diaper bags.


  1. Oh, our diaper bag is almost similar! I love it and the colors are just perfect.

  2. I have that JJ Cole travel thing too. I keep it in the jogging stroller...just in case.

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".
