I survived.

3 years. Three whole, stinkin' years.

That's how long it had been since I'd last been to the dentist. (Fer shame, I know.) If you could judge loathing in "days since"'ll get an idea of how much I enjoy the dentist.

Well, I mean...not THE dentist. He's a gem. A complete doll. The hygienist is too. It's just the stuff they do in my mouth. The SCRAPE. SCRAPE. SCRAPING. The poking and prodding. The unwieldy large x-ray thing-a-ma-jig they make a girl bite on.

I hate it. Which in turn, makes me hate them, but only for a second. As soon as their hands and instruments are out of my mouth, I love them again. But, back in they go and then HERE COMES THE HATE.

It's a good thing they can't hear what's in my head.

Regardless...I survived. And even got a "cavity free" bill of dental health!

(Hmmmmm...makes me wonder if I should push it to 4 years next time.) ;)


  1. Way to go on cavity free!! I am not sure I know anyone that enjoys the dentist! :) Makes you wonder why people go into that field!!

  2. HATE going to the dentist - but I have you beat. Until a couple of weeks ago, it had been 11 years since my last visit. I figure I can go once a year and get one cavity filled (I don't have cavity free visits) or I can go every 10-11 years and have 10 cavities filled.

    I don't discriminate though - I hate going to the doctor also.

  3. I like going to the dentist. Hook me up to the nitrous, and I am just fine. :)

  4. This "you should go to the dentist every 6 months" business is just a racket... if it ain't broke - don't fix it! Congrats on the good checkup!

  5. Seriously?!?!?! I'm jealous. I had three cavities at my last visit.

  6. I can totally relate...and I'm working on year 4 myself. It weighs on me though...and I think I will make an appointment soon...maybe next week I'll call. Right!?! ;)

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...
