It's OK Thursday

It's OK....

I'm still crying daily at some point about my mom, if not multiple times a day

I've yet to get the boys their Halloween Costumes and we have a party to attend tomorrow night

I don't care for Pumpkin Spiced Lattes

I didn't really like the movie Crazy, Stupid, Love...sure I laughed, but I didn't like the story that much.  Oh, I did enjoy the Ryan Gosling scenes, don't get me wrong.

I also didn't really like the new Lifetime remake of Steel Magnolias.  The acting seemed too forced too me and  not natural. 

I was a nut job and watched Steel Magnolias this week of all weeks.  It helped the tears flow.

That God seems to be testing my outer limits lately.  As long as my immediate family stays safe, healthy and functioning, he can throw what he wants my way.

Its Ok Thursdays


  1. I found your blog through the "OK" link up and I am really glad I did. I, too, just recently lost my father... I also cry daily. I can't pretend like I understand your grief. But I do want you to know I'm here for you if you need a friend to vent too. (I know we just met. But still.)


    1. Thanks so much for visiting. I'm sorry for your loss as well.

  2. Newest follower here! I found you through the Thursday link up! Cute blog, I can’t wait to read more!

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".
