Something just dawned on me.

Opened my eyes.

Made me see things a little clearer.

That lightbulb above my head'll do that sometimes...shed a little light on things.

When I started this little blog, I didn't have any followers.

Not a one.

Well, I had me...if that counts, but I didn't count it.

Today...just today...I glanced over at my followers list and...*GASP* the heck did that happen?

My heart swelled, my palms got sweaty...I may have even been a little teary.

To think that people, or, heck, even just one person, think I'm fun enough to be "followed", absolutely blows my mind.

And makes me feel incredibly blessed.

And happy.

And lucky.

So, thank you!!!


Thank you...

and you...

and, yup...even you! For stopping by and visiting my world.

And, now...I ask...what can I do for you? What would you like to hear more of? Less of? Different of? Same of?

Any questions for me? A little "Ask Mama M.", perhaps?

Or, just keep on pluggin' like I am?

Seriously...I'm feeling emotional right now! Weird...the Captain isn't even due to make her dreaded visit for a couple of weeks...must be the holidays.

And, being a woman.

And, loving my readers.

Y'all totally made my day!

Lot's of love,

  23. I have a very insane house and crazy toddler that never wants me to do anything, but i must MUST make time to come to your blog. my daughter sometimes sits with me and pretends to not only is it helpful tip its also family time.

  24. I don't always get to drop by, and even when I do, I don't always have a chance to do much more than zoom through, and sometimes Safari quits with a gazillion blogs in the dock... but I'd say you're obviously doing something right!



    PS - We haven't forgotten the award you bestowed on us a lifetime ago. Someday we'll catch up....

  25. You make me laugh, and tear up at times. That is enough for me!

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

Yes, YOU!!
You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
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...
