I Will Survive!

Guess I should say, "I did survive"!! My first 5K done and over, and I'm still ALIVE!!

Remember when I posted this about training? So, um, well...turns out that that was the only training I did. Yeah, I know, crazy and, possibly, even stupid. When I committed to running it with my girlfriends (oh, what, 8 weeks ago or more!!) I had plenty of time to get in shape and train for it...but, alas, my ambition and will power (or lack thereof) kicked me in the rear (or, ah, actually, didn't kick me in the rear) and I would think..."Monday. Yes, I'll start training on Monday." Well, somehow, Monday always came and went. But, my stubbornness refused to let me back down. "I will run this race, even if it kills me!" And I did!! Finished in 37 minutes (yes, yes, I know that is more than a twelve minute mile...you don't need to remind me!)...but I did it!! And I finished, and I even did a little celebrating last night for my 10 year college reunion. Not too shabby (again, if a little stupid) if I do say so myself!

Question is: Was it fun? Um, the jury's still out on that one. Ask me tomorrow (when the pain sets in), I'll probably tell you no...but for now, it's just maybe. And maybe, just maybe, I'll even do it again! 'Cept I'll be a smidge wiser next time!

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...
