Awards Season!

..."I'd like to thank the Academy..."

Well, okay, not the Academy, but Amanda, Elizabeth, and Richele, for thinkin' I'm awesome enough for some awards! "I love you, man!!"

First, thank you to Amanda and Elizabeth, who gifted me with this:

And, since I worked a hard four hours today, and didn't get much sleep...I'm just gonna take it. I'm just gonna selfishly accept it and forget any rules that it comes with! I was lucky enough to receive this award previously, so if you really wanna read some "Honest Scrap" about me, go ahead, knock yourself out!! Click here or here! But you'll probably be "like huh, and like wha'...and you'll get a little bored an'..." (and that was my favorite line from Bolt...completely random, I know...).

Richele, whom (or is it "who"? This grammar stuff always trips me up a little...and to think I considered an English major...) I think is ultra witty and fun, awarded me this:

Rules (darn rules...always some stinkin' rules...) are:

To accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his/her blog link. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you have recently discovered and think are great! Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

'K, dem's da rules...but see, I have this little problem...I don't like to follow rules, and besides that, I'm tired...and a little cranky...and I don't have the patience to award 15 people (fifteen?!!!! Yikes! Who makes these rules anyway?! I wanna talk to this person, give 'em a piece of my mind...'course, bein' the wimp I am, I'd be all "Oh,'s totally okay, uh huh...15 is a great number!!" But, NO!! It's not...) so, I'm just gonna do five.

That okay?

You sure?

Good! (Boy, it's so good when you talk to yourself, 'cuz you get just the answers you're lookin' for!!)

And the "Best Blogger Award" goes to...

(See, here's my other hang up..."Best" means, well...the best...and, there can only be one person on the what's up with this 15 thing? Not sayin' that it should be moi at the top...nope not at all, just sayin', well...I dunno what I'm saying. I need a nap.)

I, the award goes to...

Kate @ Kate's Life

Tamara @ The (Un)Experienced Mom

Amanda @ Out Numbered by Testosterone

JD @ Infinite Adventures at the Zoo (a private blog, so you'll just have to trust me that it's awesome!)

Karen @ This and That

Okay, that about wraps it up!


But not quite!!

Remember my promise to you?

The "Babylegs" promise?

Well, here I am, in all my "Babylegs" glory:

Please look beyond the double, triple, quadruple chinish neckish thing I've got goin' on...I was about three sips into some wine spiked cider, which equates to me being nearly "completely wasted".


And I can't take a good picture to save my life.

Happy Saturday!


  1. Wow, thanks for the award! It's great to be noticed by other bloggers, especially ones with such a popular blog such as yourself!

    Thanks again!


  2. Wow... I am loving the babylegs! Think I may have to borrow that idea! Good thing I live in NC nobody will ever know... not to mention I would never copy something somebody else did because I am def a leader not a follower...rrriiiiggghhhtt :)

    Have a good weekend girl

  3. Thanks for the award! Oh sweet mercy..I'm very excited.

    You look FAB-U-LOUS in that pic, lady!

  4. What are you talking about?!?! It's a great picture!!! You need to make it your profile pic! really...its good!

  5. Haha! That is a great picture of you :) I love the babylegs...I gotta get a pair for me, I mean my baby girl lol.

  6. Love the picture! :)

    No worries on not using my questions. I'll just stop suggesting! ;) haha! totally kidding, I'm a sarcastic one. I just throw out there what's in my head, and if you like 'em, hey, even better. It's really just an outlet for the random thoughts in my head. ;) So I should be thanking you, I mean really.

  7. Awww...thanks for the love. :)
    I like the babylegs idea too...especially since we really only have a handful of cold days in the south. Not worth buying too many long sleeve shirts. :)

  8. How cute are the BabyLegs!? (And they're right, it's a smokin' pic.)

    Hope it's all good - I didn't re-award you, as you had passed on the "Best Blogger" to Tamara, and she to me, but you are on the "Honorable Mentions" list on my really new and not nearly as cool as yours blog! Now, I'm off to be nosy some more!

    Megan @ All A Bunch of Momsense

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 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 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 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, 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... (Lemme just inte
