Never Ending Winter...

It always strikes me, at this time of the year, when the sun struggles to rise above the tree tops, just how stinkin' long winter is.

I don't know if it's the knowledge about just how far the sun has to rise in the sky before we'll be blessed with warmth and green and chirping birds again, or what...but it always seems like January is when it really hits me.

That we're in this for the long haul. That the little bit of winter we've just passed through was just the beginning.


Sure doesn't help anything that I was just looking through pictures like these:

And dreaming of the days in which I complain about how hot it is. Ahhhhh...summer, I can't wait!!


  1. I am SO with you on this!!! Right now, I'll even settle for Spring!!

  2. I just found your blog through another and I can't wait to read more!

    And I agree about January-it's too long! I want warm weather back too!

  3. Ya, I agree 100%. I'm over winter after the first snow fall.. Then it can go away. I hate walking outside and feeling my snot freeze.. (I know that might be a little tmi, but that's the way things are). I can't wait for Spring, and Summer. :)

  4. I just blogged about wanting warmer weather in my blog...I'm ready for winter to be gone!!!!!!

  5. I was just thinking about how warm it was at the beach last fall. We need a good melt here.

  6. Try going on a vacay in 77 degree Orlando and coming back to a freak snowstorm. 12 inches and a state of emergency in Tennessee. DE-PRESS-ING.

  7. Ahhhhhhh, torture to look at summertime pics!
    I am with you on "neverending winter" !! I get pretty "hopeless" at this time of year, thinking we will never feel the warm summer sun and crisp clean breeze again! And, then we get a mild day and it helps me get through!

  8. I am totally with you on this! I miss the summer so bad! I am so sick of the cold, grey, snowy days! Bring on the hot, sunny summery days! :]

  9. Definetly with you on this one. Please hurry summer!!

  10. We just got 7 + inches of snow in Columbia, SC. This never happens! I am so over the cold and ready for the warm. Bring on summer!!

  11. It hits me in February. There's usually one day when it just feels like it's going to last forever and I cry like the biggest sucky baby ever.

    Love the pic of BabyGirl in her itty bitty bikini! She is adorable.

    Hang tight, sistah. Summer has to come back eventually ;-)

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! ;)
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...
(Lemme just interject here...sorry for …
