The Winner...and a good cause!!!


I'm ready to announce the winner of the "5QF breaks 100!!!!!" giveaway!!

But first...a little message.


I've been trying to figure out on how best to help the victims of the Haiti earthquake...do I do an "every comment makes...", or a "giveaway donation"?

Paltry thoughts for such a serious, devastating, heartbreaking event.

So, this is what was decided:


In honor of Five Question Friday meeting the 100 (113!!!!) mark...Mr. Wonderful and I have decided to donate $50 to Doctors Without Borders.

While we would love to have the resources to donate the thousands that some people can, this is what we can do for now.

Doctors without Borders
speaks volumes to my nurses heart, and feels like a good "fit" to us...and, additionally, it is one of the charities that is able to help Haitians immediately.


Okay...now...on to the giveaway!

Five Question Friday surpassed the 100 mark! I hafta be honest...I wasn't sure it was gonna happen...but happen it did!


113 baby!

The prize I have chosen is a $25 Visa gift card...boring, but oh so versatile!!

And...the winner of the gift card is...

(*insert drum roll here*)

#49!!! It's Kate...from 5...6...7...Kate!!!

So, Kate...contact me with your info, and I'll get you your card (which, I insist, must be spent on yourself!!)! ;)

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who joined in! Hope to see you back for next week's 5QF!!

  4. YAY! I heard Sandra Bullock on the Globes last night talking about how the money for Docs W/O Borders goes there right away and how many organizations taking money for aid are having trouble delivering aid . . .so that $50 will go even farther considering! Great cause!

  7. Hey, thanks so much for posting this original and unique article. I can't tell you how many times I've visited blogs
    from Google and they've got nothing on them but crappy ads and false information that's unereliable. I don't
    normally comment on blogs, but I just thought that i'd drop you a line and tell you that I think you're doing a fantastic job.
    Thanks! if you want, you can check out my blog at Stihl Chainsaws and

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...
