Parent's Night Out!


Ahhhhh...what a beautiful Saturday!

And, I'm totally slacking. I took a nap. I drank some coffee. I read People magazine.

Wow, my ambition today is totally blowing me away!

Ooooooh, wait! I did do something! I listed a bunch of new Personals today! Check 'em out...and, if you are already listed, I would LOVE to post your blog button along with your Personal! Would you let me know if you have one?!

Oh, and don't forget that the linky for 5QF is open til tomorrow night!

I've been meaning to show you something:

It's my new bag from Native Honey! I won it!!!

I still can't believe I won it! Isn't it pretty???


Tonight, the Mr. and I get to go on a date! ("A date?!!" Name that movie...)

We get to have dinner on the Corn Growers Association!

Well, you know...not on them (ewwww...eating off of people?? I prefer plates, thankyouverymuch.), but on their tab!

It should prove to be entertaining, at the very least. See, this is a group of people in which I so ridiculously don't fit in that I have accidentally become the comic relief.

Kinda like a circus freak show.

One year, I was making conversation with one of the farmers, when he proclaimed that there was 80,000 kernels of corn in a seed bag.

Me, dumbfounded, totally picturing this nice man sitting on the ground surrounded by little piles of corn ('cuz it's always easier counting large numbers of something when you break them down into little piles), counting, "63,745...63,746...63,747"..."Honey, come and eat!!"..."D'oh, where was I????"

I looked at him, mouth agape, eyes wide and exclaimed, "HOW do you know that?????"

And the entire room broke out laughing.

Apparently, among crop farmers, it's well known that there are 80,000 kernels of corn in a bag. In fact, I think they said it's printed right on the bag.

So, now...my hubby brings me along to see what I'll say next.

I feel like I show up, people order a drink and just wait and talk amongst themselves..."what do you think she'll say this time???"

Circus freak show.

I'm tellin' ya.

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!

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...
