Is it really Thursday??

I seriously didn't know what day it was until I saw everyone was doing Thoughtless Thursday from Katie's blog!  Staying at home I feel like I lose touch with the world! Ha!
Monday's and Thursday's are not my favorite days because Jared has school on Monday's and a sales meeting on Thursday's. Boo..We love for Daddy to be home early! Finn is luvin'  some Daddy here lately. He wants to be with him all the time! Ok enough rambling.

I made some AWESOME Chicken Salad last night and I have to share the recipe.

I got the recipe from Meredith. She is such a sweetie. This is a picture from last summer. Jared works with her husband and she had sent some to work with him. Jared came home talking about how great this chicken salad was so I had to have the recipe!
(I hope you don't mind if I share)

Chicken Salad:

3 Thick Boneless Chicken Breast
4 Celery Stalks, chopped
4 Green Onions, chopped
2 Cups Seedless Grapes, sliced in half (I did fourths)
1 Bag of Cranraisins
1 Bag of Paula Deans Sweet & Salty pecans, chopped very fine*
1 Container of Marzetti's Ranch Veggie Dip
2 Apples, peeled and chopped very fine (I only did one)

Boil/Cook Chicken breast (I cooked mine in a pressure cooker), chop in fine pieces, mix all ingredients together.

* I couldn't find Paula Deans pecans so I used some that were Pecan Pie flavored.

Jared and I ate half of it just standing there after I made it. It was so good.

Today I am going to try and change Finn's room back to his normal room! Our roof leaked last year and it is just now getting fixed. (A brand new house by the way). Of course it was in Finn's room so we switched the play room and Finn's room until it was fixed. I just got Finn some new bedding (with owl's of course) so I am going to do something new in his room. I HAVE to change things often. I get SO tired of the same ole thing. I really didn't like his bedding I originally got him anyway. If you see any cute owl things for a little boy's room please tell!
