We Did It!!

I just needed to update you...

The Heroic Mom contest? WE DID IT! But...there's a catch that I wasn't aware of until late in the game. The voting was to determine 5 finalists, from which a panel of judges will choose the winner.

GAH! we wait. And pray. And hope. That those judges will see things OUR way and award my Hero Mom that prize!

Thank you all so much for your support of my sister-in-law in this contest!

I'll keep you posted on who they declare the winner!

Oh...and did you turn your clocks back? ;)


  1. YAY!! I am so glad you won the voting portion!! Lots of prayers for the next round! xo

  2. Congrats! I just read her story and cannot imagine how difficult it must be. She is truly blessed to have a sister in law like you. Praying you make it through the next round!

  3. How cool! Can't wait to hear the results! Keeping my fingers crossed you continue on!

  4. Yay for making it to the next round! I had it in my bookmark bar so I could vote every day as I'm sure so many others did too. Hoping and praying!

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:

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...
