Not Me! Monday!



Another Monday...'cept it's no ordinary Monday here in MinneSOOOOta...no, it's snowing today! Blech...I'm not ready. And those are all "real" nots. Head on over to MckMama's to check out some not so real nots!

I most definitely did not send my kindergarten boy to school in my "shortie" socks today, because I have not fallen behind (once again) in laundry. He was not utterly appalled, but wore them anyway...afterall, it's snowing here and his feet would get cold if they were bare! But no! I would never be so unorganized! Moi?

My two little kiddos are not eating dry waffles, 'cuz our cupboards are not as bare as Old Mother Hubbard's, and there was nothing else to feed their hungry tummies. Particularly, there were not any eggs, because my hubby had not used them for the scavenger hunt this weekend...leaving his family to starve.

I do not resemble something like the "Swamp Monster" as I've developed a scaly little red dry patch under my eye. My SIL did not take one look at me this weekend as exclaim..."WHAT happened to your eye?" No, I always resemble Heidi Klum...always, so certainly that was not me!

I am not kicking myself in the butt for agreeing to a family get together, since my BIL's family is here from CA (but that's a whole 'nuther story!!). What the heck would I do with 50 people in my home and a yard covered with snow? I am not plum out of ideas, and I am not totally hoping you'll give me some good ideas for entertaining 30-something children of varying age. Nope, Not Me!

Happy Not Me! Monday, Friends!! Have a great week!

  4. We live in Hudson, WI - so we're in the snow, too! :) So, you've got a buncha people coming, huh? There's nothing like a bunch of legos to keep kids of all ages occupied for a long while - make it a contest! :) That, and clay. It's an idea for an inside activity...somebody told me today that it's supposed to be 60 by the end of the week...that's what I heard, anyhow...here in Twin City country, anyhow...you know what they say about Wisconsin/Minnesota...if you don't like the weather...wait an hour or so...

  6. Oh No, 30+ kids! LOL. I would say come up with a couple of cute little gifts and ask the oldest couple of kids to be your helpers for the day. I like to throw all the toys with small parts into a closet and put a big piece of furniture in front of it so I don't have to pick up hundreds of little tiny pieces. How about an arts and crafts table with a sheet underneath it, like banquet size table. Cover it in a cheap plastic table cover and set out some glue sticks. You could come up with different crafts, like paper bag puppets, paper plate flowers. Drop a big pile of construction paper, crayons, scissors, eyes, pompoms, puffy letters, whatever else you can think of. I bet you can get a ton of art supplies at wally world for less than 10 bucks.

    Good luck!

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...
