Well, wouldn't you know...

Instead of waking up as an 80 year old woman, I instead woke up as a 13 year girl. I've got the zits to prove it.


Apparently I squatted on the wrong green tube and was morphed back into teenage-dom. Speaking of which, all of you mother's who are battling temper tantrums, sleepless nights and diaper blow outs? Embrace them.

These are the easiest years of your life.

Trust me on this one. When that sleepless babe grows to a teenager, the stakes rise. Even the "good" stuff is heavy.

I'm nearly ready for Christmas...some gifts to wrap and some baking to do, but then BRING IT ON! My stress level is still through the roof, however. My neck tells me so by becoming so tight I can't help but take notice because it feels as though it is going to consume my brain in a cannabalistic fit of binge eating.

That's all. Goodnight.

Oh, but wait...because I love you, (back to the teenage stuff) may you never be blessed with having to be a part of the team meal the week of Christmas.


  1. I couldn't agree with you more about the teen years. O...M...G! Give me back the toddlers years. Those were EASY.

    I like to refer to this period where each of my teens has officially mark me as the dumbest person they know. Sigh... good times.

  2. Too funny, and too true. I teach 8th grade and spend every day with these teenagers. My oldest is 10 and is starting to "try out" the teen angst. She is still a sweetie pie, but every now and then, she is 15 and my husband and I shake our heads and quiver in our boots.

  3. Ught oh... I'm a mom to a toddler (for the first time) and it's ROUGH!!! From the sudden mood swings to tantrums where he bangs his head on anything he can... I'm baffled most of the time!! It's not encouraging to know that this is the EASY stuff!!!

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!

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!

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! ;)

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...
