My Boudoir

Kelly's Korner is continuing her Show Us Your Life Home Tour and this week is bedrooms.

This furniture was our first major purchase after we bought our first house.  It was way too big for our old house, but now we have plenty of space.  However, some walls that are too short and a window not exactly even in the center of the wall have the furniture arranged not exactly how I'd like to see it.
That said, two weeks ago we rearranged our furniture after 3 years living here and it feels like a brand new room.  I can't tell you how much space we gained from this simple job.  Too bad I didn't take before and after photos. We didn't take anything out, but our new arrangement is so much more spacious and bright.  Our bed used to block one of the windows and thus nearly all of the daylight. I love having a brighter room now.  I haven't gotten to hanging up pictures yet either.  Any ideas for something above our headboard or is it good the way it is?

I'd eventually like to paint, but I'm on the hunt for a new bedding set that will knock my socks off. I love the design of this current set, but the silk shantung isn't as comfy as we'd like it to be.  Also, I'm saving up to buy another crystal lamp vs. the wood one on the dresser.

Our bedroom also has the on-suite bathroom design layout that was so ever popular in the 70s.  The toilet and shower are contained in their own room but the vanity and sink are on the outside and exposed to our bedroom.  A little more privacy would be nice so as not to disturb each other when getting ready in the morning, but we are making it work so far.  We also have his/her closets which is nice.  Mine is the double and his is a single :)

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".
