Tech-no?

All my life I have been terrible at decision making..."pink shoes or yellow? hair up or down? corn and tomato salsa on my burrito?"...you see, I can just imagine how good both options can be. I've never been a glass half empty or half full kind of person either, afterall, doesn't it matter whether you've just filled the cup or emptied it?

So my latest issue is this whole technology bit, texting (I don't), blogging (I do), Twitter (just started), Facebook (for awhile) and how connected I want to be...or would it be disconnected? I'm loving the whole blog routine, hoping this isn't just a "honeymoon" phase, 'cuz I enjoy posting, stimulating my brain to be creative, witty, 'real'. Jury's still out on Twitter, loving Facebook, and questioning if I would like texting. I am a verbal person, I am a "warm fuzzy"...I love people, I love helping people, I love connecting with people and I think texting "cheapens" that...makes it, generic, if you will. If I start texting, will I become disconnected? I'm afraid for this "up coming" generation (I'm Generation X, is this Generation Text?) and the communication skills they will lack. Yet, with all of that, texting intrigues me, maybe even entices me a little.

And, hence, the decision...do I or don't I? Tech-no, or tech-yes?

And, if I do...what kind of a phone do I get? (oh, crap, another decision...)

  1. lol i'm with you.... although i personally think i spend enough time on "here" blogging, working, and doing all the things that keep me busy to buy a phone to keep me texting and twittering.... I look at that as my time with the girls (personally.. not judging those that do those things) and dont want one more thing taking time away from my kids... I'm not disciplined enough to keep everything in moderation! ;) You bring up great points ;) Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Texting is great for me (when I really don't want to talk but HAVE to) It's an easy way to make up when my husband and I fuss...I'm not great at saying I'm sorry so it's easier to text it but other than that, I like the old fashion talking on the phone :)

  3. Shoes--yellow was a good choice!
    Hair--wear it down, such a cute cut!
    salsa--always both! :)
    get off the fence and get the iphone already :)
    or .. wait and think about it for another 3 weeks asking me every 3 days if i still love mine :) Either way, you're lovable as indecisive you! (see, you can be warm & fuzzy online!)

Coming soon...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!


Crock-Pot Fajitas

You!
Yes, YOU!!
You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
Tonight.
Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post first...you know...so you know how to make it...
But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, well...is the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
