Pinterest-ing Wednesday!


I'm not really sure where or when my obsession with keys really started... 

I just love the way they look!

So much so, I asked for and got the Tiffany Fleur De Lis Key Pendant as a gift and even added a very large key to my gallery wall. 

And you know Pinterest doesn't help the obsession :) 

These are some of my favorite key pictures I've found!

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Wraps

I love pinning and trying new recipes from Pinterest. Especially those easy crockpot ones! 

I pinned these buffalo chicken wraps a long time ago and finally got around to making them...

Here's the recipe: 
(taken from here)

2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs (I used breasts)
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup buffalo wing sauce
3/4 cup ranch dressing
shredded lettuce

~In 1 1/2-quart slow cooker, place chicken; sprinkle with salt (I covered the chicken with chicken broth to cook it... I find it weird that they said just to cook with no liquid...)

~Cover; cook 6 to 7 hours (if slow cooker has heat settings, use Low).

~With slotted spoon, remove chicken from slow cooker and place on cutting board; discard liquid in slow cooker. In slow cooker, mix buffalo wing sauce and 1/4 cup of the ranch dressing. With 2 forks, shred chicken. Return chicken to slow cooker; stir gently to mix with sauce.

~To serve, spread each tortilla with 1 tablespoon remaining ranch dressing; top each with about 1/2 cup chicken mixture and about 1/3 cup lettuce. Roll up tortilla; secure with toothpicks.

And this my friends, is my final product! 

These were REALLY good! So good, we've made them several times because we liked them so much! 

If you're looking for easy, good recipes like me, you should try this one!! :-P

Weekend Plans

Y'all I have nothing today. 

I have had an exhausting first week back at work with the kiddos and really, right now, I am just SO thankful it's Friday!! 

After work today I'm headed to a local Mexican joint for some margaritas with my favorite school nurse girls! That will be a much needed drink ;)

Saturday I'm looking forward to absolutely no plans during the day except some relaxation. 

Saturday night, we have plans with some friends for dinner at Del Friscos for the last weekend of Houston Restaurant Week. YUMMM! You better believe I'm indulging in one of these...

Hope everyone has a great weekend! 

What are your plans?

What I Never Knew About Blogging...

I never knew that I would actually meet anyone in the blogging world...

I never knew that I would exchange phone numbers with other bloggers and text like we are best friends...

I never knew that I would travel to other cities to meet bloggers...

 I never knew my Facebook and blog worlds would collide... 

I never knew that I would meet people who would make me smile after a really bad day...

I never knew that I would meet such amazing women...

I never knew that I would meet these women who I now call my FRIENDS! 

I can not believe the friendships I've gained from blogging. 

Seriously, these girls are amazing and people who I call my friends now. 

I am so excited to see all of these girls on Sunday at our August meet up and for many more Happy Hours, movies, meet ups, and dinners. 

I heart y'all so much!
