Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings

As a fairly "new" mom, I'm a huge fan of quick and easy meals, especially ones that allow me to use my crock pot. My husband is a huge fan of this recipe and anything that makes him happy, makes me happy!

Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings:
1 Lb Shredded Chicken
2 Cans Chicken Broth
1 Large Can Cream of Chicken Soup
3 Medium Potatoes
1 Can Biscuits

With your crock pot on high, put the broth and the cream of chicken soup in and whisk it together so that it's all incorporated.

Add the chicken and potatoes and cover.
Let cook for 3.5 Hours.

After the 3.5 hours have passed, cut the biscuits into small pieces and add to the pot.
Add salt and pepper to taste. 

Cook in additional 30 minutes.

Serve alone of on top of biscuits.

Add carrots, peas and celery and make it a chicken pot pie! 

Hope you enjoy!

Pond's BB+ Review!

I am not a BB cream person... at all! I have very oily skin and prefer and super matte, full coverage foundation for everyday wear. But, when influenster sent me the new Ponds BB+, I was shocked at how much I liked it. It's got amazing coverage, great matte finish, and it smells beautiful. So different from other drugstore BB creams and at a wonderful price. I absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a great coverage BB Cream!

Mommy Makeover: Getting in Shape!

My weight has always been in the forefront of my life. I've always been known as the heavy girl or the "chubby" girl. The smallest i've ever been was a size 8. I remember in high school thinking that boys didn't like me because of the way I looked and because I was so self-concious about it, they expected me to be easy (which I wasn't... I'm proud to say that I was celibate until the day I married my husband! So, he really is my one and only!). 

When I began my TTC journey almost 4 years ago, my starting weight was 225 lbs. I was a wreck. Addicted to Pepsi and eating junk. But I knew if I wanted to be a mother, I needed to lose the weight. So, I cut out all soda, started a work out routine and by the time I began clomid in 2011, I was down to 190 lbs. Right after I had my boys, I weight 175 lbs and felt AMAZING. I looked so good! Laziness beat me and here I am today.

I am no longer willing to live this way. I am unhappy, ashamed, and very self-concious about the way I look. That's enough. I can't do this to myself anymore. I need to think about my kids and how being so out of shape and unhealthy is detrimental to our lives together.

So, here goes nothing... Yesterday, I started my new lifestyle! It consists of being more active overall, eating 3 regular meals at "normal" times, and i've incorporated a workout regimen (Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, Dancing with the Stars Cardio, and Just Dance video game). 

My goal weight is 170 lbs. and just to be overall healthy. I'll take it step by step. After i've reached 170 lbs, i'll go from there and set the next goal.

So, as I sit here typing this with a caffeine withdrawal migraine, i'm ready to do this! I will be updating every Monday with videos and on this blog.
