Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas

Found this recipe while browsing pinterest the other day. I had all the ingredients so I gave it a try...HUGE success! It's so yummy and will definitely be a common meal around our house! Plus it's a crock pot meal and super easy! The original recipe calls for lime juice...I had lemon so I used that and it was fabulous!

Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas 
1 onion, sliced
3 sweet peppers, sliced
1 ½ pounds boneless chicken breast or thighs
½ cup chicken broth
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cumin
1 ½ tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons of lime or lemon juice
Tortillas
Fajita fixings

Combine sliced onion and peppers in the bottom of a greased crockpot. Lay chicken on top of veggies. Pour chicken broth over top. Sprinkle everything with cumin, salt, and chili powder. Pour the lime/lemon juice over the top. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Shred meat when done and serve on tortillas with your choice of fixings.

You can find the original recipe post with step by step pictures here.

So yummy! Enjoy!

Green Dresser Makeover

The girls dresser is done! It's not the bold green I originally planned on, but I'm waiting to see how the rest of the room comes together before I go crazy and paint it again! Shhhh...don't tell my husband I said that :)

Here's the before:

This dresser was given to me by my Oma (grandma) It was unfinished wood and had brass rings on the handles. Not my style, but it was free and with a little paint it is perfect for my girls! 
Here's the after:

The color is Sultana from Martha Stewart, but I used Behr paint.

What do you think about the color? I like it, but just can't decide if it's what I want for their room. Like I said before I think I'll wait to see how the rest of the room comes together before I repaint, but I really need your input on this one!

Children's Rocking Chair Makeover

Hello there! As promised here's the children's rocking chair for my girls room! If you didn't see my post about the inspiration and colors I'm using you can check it out here.

Now lets refresh our memories of what the chair looked like before.


And after removing over 100 staples, filling the holes in the seat, a little bit of sanding, a solid coat of Kilz spray primer and Krylon Raspberry spray paint here's what she looks like now:


What do you think? I still need to make the pillow for it, but that will be done with the sewing projects. First things first...I will be stenciling this weekend and am so excited about it and can't wait to show you!

Enjoy!
