Mother's Day Mania Themes!


Well...here we go! The official kick off for Mother's Day Mania!

Here's the button, if you wanna grab it!

Photobucket


This whole idea came about, after the fun I had doing the Valentine's Day Extravaganza! I heard from a lot of people that they really enjoyed it...so I decided to do it again!

I'm really excited to hear mama stories from everyone else out there...and I'm hoping this Blog Hop turns out to be as fun as I'm thinking it's going to be! Feel free to join in as many (or as few) days as you'd like!

Okay...so, we're gonna start this fun fest...this mania...on Wednesday...for a few reasons.

Starting on Wednesday gives us 5 days of the Mother's Day Mania. I have 5 prizes to give away...and I have 5 children that call me "Mama". I like 5.

5 works for me. I could go on and on about 5...I work 5 days a pay period, then there's 5 Question Friday...'course, there's the url of my blog...okay, I'll stop now...

So, anywho...on to the themes!

Wednesday: Whoopsie Wednesday! Let's kick this off with a little support therapy! Nearly every mom I know, had a "whoopsie" with at least one (all?) of their kiddos...falling off the bed, bonking a little head going around the corner, a bent toe in a shoe...I've heard so many stories! And, I know we ALL feel horrible about those times, so let's share 'em!

Thursday: Birth stories!! I know I've done it before...but, honestly...I can't get enough birth stories! I'm gonna do this particular birth story on my oldest...since he made me a mama for the very first time! This is an easy one...so many people already have birth stories written, just link up that post!

Friday: Standard 5QF...maybe with some mama themed questions thrown in...I'll see what I can dig up! :)

Saturday: What do you enjoy most about being a mother? Have you had any embarrassing mama moments? Take your pick or do 'em both!

Sunday: Happy Mother's Day! Let's write a letter to our firstborn...the one's that made us "mama's" for the first time! Enjoy your day!

At the end of the "Mania"...I'll draw 5 lucky winners from the "linker uppers" for the fun gifts I have to giveaway!

Looking forward to reading more about YOU as a mama!

  5. I'm sure I'll be participating. For some reason I thought it was going to be more of a tribute to our moms, instead of talking about us as mothers, but still fun.

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 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...
