Thursday Night 5QF Sneak Peek!!

So, I totally thought I was better. Then I worked today, and now I'm all achy and coughy and yucky again. A co-worker thinks I have influenza...judging by the instaneousness with which my symptoms set in.

Seriously. One nano-second I was the picture of health, the next, I was a sickly, pale, pasty, whiny pile of yuck. Oddest thing that's ever happened to me. Oh well...chalk this one up to a lifetime worth of immunity against whatever strain of flu it is this year!

Illnesses = Mother Nature's Inoculations didn't come here to listen to my drivel about feeling like poo. Since they don't make a "hoarse font", for all you know, I sound perfectly normal!

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!

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...
