New kitten in the family! (well tommorrow...)

After a TON of thought we decided that we would like to have a second cat. You haven't seen me posting in the last few days because I've been scouring the web looking for just the right one to add to our family. This is it!

We're going to get her tommorrow! I am just so excited! You know when you just KNOW that it's the one? Well that's what happened here...we just knew.

So *happy dance* and now back to your regularly scheduled programming...

Review and Giveaway: Piggy Paints!

Thanks to Piggy Paint me and my daughter were able to check out this all natural nail polish and nail polish remover! This stuff was great! The nail polish has basically zero smell and the nail polish, while it does have a scent, is not nearly as bad as the nose-burning remover you get from the store. It lasts just as long as regular nail polish and the pink that we got to check out was really pretty!

Here are a few other things I liked about Piggy Paint:

It's hypo-allergenic and eco-friendly!

Upcoming CSN Review!

Hello Everyone! CSN contacted me to do a review and giveaway. *throws confetti* I adore everything CSN makes so of course I agreed! Before I tell you about what I'm reviewing let me tell you about their dining room tables! I checked them out and they have something for everyone...from classic styles to modern styles, you can find something that you want!

While I do love EVERYTHING I can only pick one thing to review...and I was greedy this time! LOL! Do you remember this little gal? If not you can read up how she came to be with us here. Of course she no longer looks ragged and is growing by leaps and bounds! This is the picture I took on the day that we got her.
Well, it's month later and she is fantastic and we LOVE her! We've been talking about buying a Cat Tree for her so this came at a GREAT time! I knew you would all understand if I reviewed a kitty tree for Pumpkin!Here is what she'll be getting! I can't wait to see what she does with it!

Giveaway Time:
Even though she's getting this giant 64" Cat Tree I'm still able to offer you a $20.00 Gift Certificate! YAY!

Chicken Enchilada Recipe! (easy and yummy!)

This recipe comes from AllRecipes.com. I made this for supper the other night and it was quick, easy, and delicious so I wanted to share!

(picture from allrecipes.com)

Prep Time:30 Min
Cook Time:30 Min
Ready In:1 Hr 30 Min

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 onion, chopped
1/2 pint sour cream
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
8 (10 inch) flour tortillas
1 (12 ounce) jar taco sauce
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a medium, non-stick skillet over medium heat, cook chicken until no longer pink and juices run clear. Drain excess fat. Cube the chicken and return it to the skillet. Add the onion, sour cream, Cheddar cheese, parsley, oregano and ground black pepper. Heat until cheese melts. Stir in salt, tomato sauce, water, chili powder, green pepper and garlic.

Roll even amounts of the mixture in the tortillas. Arrange in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Cover with taco sauce and 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven 20 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before serving.

Time Saver tip:
Instead of using boneless chicken breasts I used the precut chicken fajita meat you can buy in (normally) the freezer section of your grocery srore!
