Mr. Wonderfulest


Okay, well, thank you for letting me get that off my chest. I feel much better now, really!

This weekend we are in the "Big City" for a baseball tournament with Big A. I am "single parenting" it, however, since Mr. Wonderful is back home working. Hopefully he'll be able to catch up with us tomorrow (oh please, oh please, oh please let that happen!)! I am realizing how very much I depend on him for help with our gaggle of children...WOW! this is a lot of work!

Which brings me to (insert drum roll here...), my first giveaway!!! In light of and in celebration of the upcoming Father's Day...I'm gonna have us a contest!

I always get a kick out of people's profiles..."I'm married to the most wonderful man on earth" or "I have the most fabulous husband" or "my husband is the most wonderful father" and I love it! I love that we all think so highly of our spouses, so, my challenge is this: we will post about all of the wonderful, selfless, loving, caring things our husbands do for us, for our children, for their parents, whatever it may be! I wanna hear all about your Mr. Wonderful. My thoughts are that I'll then choose the "Mr. Wonderful-est" and bestow upon the winner a marvelous gift. I'm hoping Mr. Linky will be operational (and that I'll be able to figure him out)...stay tuned for the date (I'm thinking Monday...wait, NO, not Monday, Tuesday maybe? I can't compete with Not Me! Monday, nor do I want to!) of the posting...and the gift (I'm thinking a gift certificate of some kind to celebrate with your hubby...not sure tho')! Wanted to get the word out there, please feel free to leave me comment about your thoughts or ideas on this...Oh, and I should specify...feel free to post about any Mr. Wonderful in your life, your dad, brother, grandfather, BIL, son, soldier, anything!

May the best Mr. Wonderful win!


Oh, and PS--I won't choose my Mr. Wonderful...that just wouldn't be right!

  2. I hoppped on over to pay you a visit from the blogfrog.
    What a great idea you have here!

    I have "The Most Wonderful" Husband!

    I feel very blessed to be married to my dream man. He has always supported and encouraged me in everything I have wanted to do. He works 40+ hours a week, but always makes time to pitch in around the house or run the kids here or there. He is always willing to help out wherever he is needed. He is my best friend and life partner. I look forward to growing old and gray with this man. We were married on my birthday in 1997...and I thought I loved him then!

  5. I love the idea for the Mr. Wonderfulest! I think its great, and agree with you.... with as many times as we get downtrodden by our spouses, its amazing how all of us actually really do love, appreciate, and respect them! I'm in... give me details..... and let me know if you want me to put a shout out on my small blog world! LOL

  8. Since I'm planning on doing a Mr. Wonderful posting on Father's Day, I thought I'd do a comment here.
    I'm married to the most honest, hard-working, God-living, family-oriented man I know. Not only is he a fantastic example that my sons get to SEE how to be a great man, but he also talks to them about loving the Lord and living an honest life. He's self-employed- which means he works a lot to keep money coming in. But when he's home, he really makes an effort to be present with us. He's not flashy, and he doesn't care about the whole "keeping up with the jones'" thing-he's just himself, and I couldn't love him more for it!

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...
