Balsamic Chicken and broccoli Salad


I haven't posted any new recipes lately because honestly our dinners have been very straight forward..a meat and a veggie..for the past month.  Tonight I mixed it up a little with a last minute salad that turned out super delicious! Quick, easy and family approved! 

Ingredients:
-Thin Sliced raw Chicken Strips
-oregano
-olive oil
-balsamic Vinegar
-Green Giant Seasoned Broccoli Steam Bags
-Arugula 
-Fresh Parm

Directions:
-Toss your chicken strips into a frying pan over medium/high heat.  Add about 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil.  Sprinkle each tender with oregano
-Let the chicken cook for about 6 minutes and flip to the other side.  Add more oregano.
-Throw the seasoned broccoli bag in the microwave (following heating directions on the bag)
-Keep checking chicken until its cooked through.  Once chicken is white and cooked throughout add balsamic vinegar all over the strips.  Turn heat down to medium and just let sit.  The balsamic will coat the chicken..leave on heat until desired look...we like ours to almost looked grilled. (around 3-4 minutes)
-Place a handful of arugula in a salad bowl.  Scoop out some of the seasoned broccoli and place on top.  Finish with the chicken and top with some fresh grated parm.  The parm melts on the chicken and tastes so good with the balsamic flavoring! 

*We didn't need to add any extra dressing to ours once we mixed the broccoli and salad...but feel free to add to yours!

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!  


To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white.

1. Drizzle


2. Sterling

3. Halation

These three options are also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

I am kicking off the season with a very Merry CHIC-Mas themed master bedroom! Make sure to check out the four other fabulous bloggers this week!

You all know by now I love me some Christmas spirit in the bedroom and in our new home the master is light and bright so I wanted to continue that in the holiday decor.
  I chose to use the GORGeous Treetopia 7' prelit Tinkerbell Silver Christmas Tree. The silvery tinsel tips add such a magical touch and the width of 47" make the tree such a great piece and perfect CHIC-mas addition to any room.

Our Master Bedroom Flooring

Last night as I was showing a neighbor around the house (for a girls wine night..how fun right?!!) I realized that I hadn't shared our master flooring and office flooring!! You guys this floor was literally a STEAL! Every single person that has come to see the new house LOVES these floors!

Okay, so back to the beginning... when we were picking out the carpet for upstairs my husband and I both decided we didn't want the master bedroom to get new carpet.  It is the only bedroom on the first floor and the entire rest of the house already had tile.  I personally did not want wood tile in the bedroom just because I felt the need for something "softer".  Getting new hardwoods wasn't exactly in the budget so we decided to check out laminates.  Now, let me start by saying I have never liked laminate. You all know as soon as we buy fixer upper properties we ALWAYS rip out the laminate.  I just think it looks cheap.  Well...I was so impressed with all the laminate floors th…
