Back to reality...

We're home! We rolled into our driveway at about 12:30 last night, transferred sleepy, dirty children to their beds, and crashed.

The Pal then immediately took off on yet another long car ride, this time with his dad, to the Boundary Waters! Poor kid will be "on the road" for almost 24 hours straight. I think I would have declared a mutiny! Or something! (Okay, so...I don't really know what a "mutiny" is, I just thought it sounded good...)

Now...I've got piles and piles of laundry to do, showers to give, family to update, posts to write, photos to share, carpet to vacuum, life to live.

Stay tuned...I'm going to post about our favorite Black Hills destination very soon!!


  1. Glad you all made it back safe and sound!! Can't wait to see your pics and hear all about your trip.

    Missed ya!

  2. Ahhh...gotta love the piles of laundry that follow a great vacation!

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! ;)
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...
