Today was twin day at work today. You can’t even tell us apart, right?

Actually it was my office Christmas party, which included a potluck and a secret santa gift exchange. I brought the only crock pot recipe that I know how to make; buffalo chicken sandwiches. Apparently it was a huge hit:

The recipe is easy as pie. Except it isn't pie just to be clear.

- 3 lbs chicken breasts.
-1 16 oz bottle hot sauce (I used Frank's wing sauce)
-1 oz. package of Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning

Throw all in crock pot on low for 7-8 hours. Stir up, shred with fork. Throw on buns/bread. Voila.

Word on the street is that Friday at 9:30 AM EST there is going to be a National Day of Silence for the Sandy Hook victims. I’m not sure if this is ‘official’ yet or not, but I plan on participating regardless. You should too.

Also, there have been a few blurbs out there about sending ‘Hearts to Newtown’. The basic concept is to cut out a heart and write a loving/encouraging message that will be hung in the local church/around town.The address to send your heart to is listed below, and more information can be found here.

Newtown Congregational Church 

14 West Street 

Newtown, CT 06470 

And, if you’re still looking for ways that you can ‘help’ without actually being present in Connecticut, which I know I am, check this out. The hashtag #26acts (of kindness) is spreading like wildfire and I LOVE it.

The general idea behind it is to commit an act of kindness for each victim of the Sandy Hook shooting. Any act of kindness, big or small, can help to make a difference across the country.

Love someone today. Give someone a hug. Buy the person behind you in line their coffee tomorrow. Bite your tongue when you really don’t want to, or smile at a random stranger on the street. The concept is simple, but you never know whose day you may brighten.

Oh, and of course there's already word of a 5k for Newtown that will be put on to raise money for the victim's families, etc. No details have been confirmed yet, but if you are interested at all you can join the facebook group for it at this link.

Hope everyone has a fantastic Tuesday.
