Easy Crock-Pot Fajitas

Nov 18, 2015




I'm not going to lie, cooking is not something that I enjoy. I feel like for two busy people, take out is just more cost effective and time efficient. Not to mention that pretty much any place you go nowadays has a healthy option. When I do cook, I like for what I make to be healthy and as easy as possible. These fajitas fit the bill! So easy and so tasty!

Ingredients: 
Chicken breast tenderloins
Fajita seasoning
Bell peppers (2)
Chopped onion 
water

Directions:
Place the tenderloins in the crock-pot with just enough water to cover them. Add in the fajita seasoning, chopped onion, and bell peppers (I cut mine in strips) and mix the seasoning in. I cooked mine on high for and hour and a half and they were perfect. You can take a spatula to 'chop' up the chicken, that's how tender they get. 

We had refried beans and my husband's amazing fresh guacamole that he makes with ours :) Try these for your next Taco Tuesday & enjoy!

I hope everyone is having a nice weekend! The weather could not be more perfect today and we have a fun evening planned with friends & family. This is a look from last weekend (obviously it was terribly windy!), I love this cardigan I found at Forever 21 a few weeks ago! I have learned that if you spot something there you like, especially in store, you have to snatch it then or it will likely be gone forever! I also feel like their quality has gotten better over the past year or so. They are definitely one of my go to places to shop, you can't beat the prices.

Thanks for reading! Oh! I have changed the blog name back to Life & Messy Hair. Sambrooke.com will still link in though if you like that better ;) It was just easier this way since I already have a Bloglovin account for this name, sorry for the confusion if it cause any :\

Gallery Wall

Nov 11, 2015








Lamp, old from Target | Box, Home Goods | Gold Frames, Dollar Tree | All pre-framed artwork, Hobby Lobby

So I had been contemplating a gallery wall for a whileeee, then one night I was with my gal pal in Hobby Lobby and all of the canvas and framed art work was 50% off! It was a sign. I picked my pieces ($80 for all of them!), went to Target and picked up several packs of the 3M Commands (a blessing I tell ya), then went home and got to work! I didn't pre-plan the arrangement, I just kinda started on the outside and worked my way in, trying to keep the colors and sizes balanced. I knew I did not want it to be 'perfect', as in the spacing of the pictures, so I am really pleased with how it came out! I love that it looks cohesive yet still looks a little loose and fun. 

I chose to use different size and color frames to keep it interesting. I also chose to keep my main colors to a minimum. Notice the use of mainly blue and pink? I feel like too many colors would not have flowed as well. 

Cheater tip that will save you time:
Once you have the largest piece hung up, make sure it's even with a ruler/leveler, then you can use that frame to make sure your others are even. I didn't make sure they were all even because I could just align them based on the one I KNEW was perfect :)

Living in Leggings

If you are looking for the perfect leggings, THESE are the ones! I bought them last year and love them even more than my Lululemon pair (these are thicker and do not give that sheen when you bend your legs or the leggings get stretched out during movement). 

Life update: I feel like everything is falling into place! It's funny how things work out how you hoped they always would, even though you had no clue how you were going to get there, isn't it?
