It really IS the Year of the Picnic Table!!

And tomorrow...I will show you photographic proof that I did, in fact, receive an awesome, homemade, huge picnic table!

I love it!

I love it so much that I started dismantling an old wooden futon frame to make a picnic table for the kids! I'll take some pics of that tomorrow, too...I really have no idea what I'm doing, so I'm not sure what we'll end up with...but it's been a fun little project!

I worked this weekend and it was busy...and it totally interrupted my blogging. Stoopid work. BUT, I could NOT go to bed without announcing this week's Date of the Week!

If you're new to the Date of the Week fun...check out my Personals page by clicking the link above, in my nav menu, or by clicking Personals <------- right there, and get all the details on how YOU can get listed!

And now...without further adieu...I bring you this week's Date, who is...

I’m Lua, a twenty something aspiring writer from Istanbul, soon on my way to the University of Kent to study Creative Writing! My blog is about my journey on becoming a published writer and everything I come across while I follow my dream, as well as books, movies, stories and my two crazy dogs- Chuck & Apple!

Head on over and visit Lua! Tell her Mama sent you!

And now...I must rest my weary head and my tired legs. My bed is calling for me.

See you in the am!


  1. Yes Virginia...there IS a Santa Claus.

    Congratulations on your new table!

  2. Wow! This is one of the most exciting dates I’ve ever been on! Thank you Mama M. :)

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! ;)

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...
