Chicken Fried...


I'm not sure if you've heard or not, but "Chicken Fried" makes me cry.

No...not fried chicken (tho', when I get a glimpse of my muffin top and saddle bags after fried chicken, sometimes a tear or two squeezes out...)...I'm talking 'bout the Zac Brown Band's "Chicken Fried" (click it to hear it!).

Friday night, our community held a fundraiser for our local Boy's and Girl's Club.

To say it was a complete success and a total blast is the UNDERSTATEMENT of all understatements!!

My parents were there (a surprise to us...), and they knew the band (I feel like I'm name dropping)...a kinda, sorta, tad bit, locally famous country band called The Roosters.

My two favorite men:

My dad requested "Chicken Fried" for me...I got my groove on and drug (or is it dragged?) the Mr. onto the dance floor:

(Silly me, singing to my handsome...)

I even made it through the whole song without crying...'course, coulda been that I was too intent on NOT tripping over my own feet, but I can't be sure.

My in-laws (out-laws?!!) ;) were there too (not a surprise...we shared a table with them and had a BLAST!!!):

A few of the sibling in-laws:



My goofy BIL, sneakin' a peek:


And a whole buncha out-laws gettin' jiggy wit it:





Is there anything better than expecting a "fun" date night and then having it completely knock your socks off?!

I think not!

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...
