A Lesson Learned

So, the other day...I kinda bragged a little bit.

Just a lil'.

Okay, okay...I totally bragged and boasted. I told the world and anyone who'd listen, that I was caught up on my laundry!

I tweeted and Facebooked and emailed and texted (texted--is that really a word?!) and phoned and, heck, I even stopped strangers on the street.

And everyone was very happy for me! Well, to my face they were...behind my back, they were all probably, "Why, that little, boastful, full of herself gal..."

But then...

I think the laundry gods, the laundry powers that be, caught wind of my puffed out chest...and decided to set me in my place.

Yup, they deflated me with a big SAH-MACK, SLAPPITY, SLAP, SLAP...right upside the head.

For, it seems, that while I know my laundry had issues of procreating before...it now seems as though they are procreating in earnest.

Kinda like that stray cat we had a while ago.

Yeah...just like that stray cat.

And now? Now I've got laundry comin' outta the wahzoo.

Blech.

  2. we need to find the one that drops dirty laundry off at the house in the middle of the night. We have that same problem here and I know I would love to find the cause. I do laundry everyday... well I SHOULD do laundry every day!

  5. Laundry day here as well- well, EVERY day is laundry around here, but today is all the bedding for the 8 beds we sleep in, plus all the towels! But my neighbor and I decided to ditch it all and head to Starbucks for an hour of pure bliss- no laundry and no kids- and I highly recommend it ;-)

  7. I used to be on top of laundry. I was so proud of it. Well, pride comes before a fall. I am so behind no one has underwear! lol. I just can't keep up anymore...I mean the last few months have been horrible. I have clean laundry on my coffee table waiting for someone to put it away and dirty laundry in heaping piles falling out of the laundry sorter. UGH..better to start a load.

  8. Yep ... our family of 7 just spent 7 days in Disney ... I won't be crawlin' out of this mountain of laundry for weeks!!!! And don't even get me started on folding ... each kid can just take a basket of their laundry to their room ... no folding needed, right?

  9. I know, I hate that! Every time my laundry room is pristine and empty, then the kids clean their rooms and the next thing I know, there is a mountain of laundry again! Such a bummer!

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!

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...
