So Proud.

My heart is simultaneously bursting with pride and crying. Crying because time is moving soooooo fast!

I know I keep saying it...but mama's of wee babes that are keeping you up at night? Soak up those snuggles. Enjoy that extra time with your babies because before you know it...they're all dressed up and headed off to their first "real" job, in a tie they tied all by themselves.

So proud of this kiddo. He is an incredible young man who is going places in life.

Going places in life and leaving his mama behind.


Hold me.


  1. Congratulations! Our oldest granddaughter just graduated from Grade 8 and we miss the loittle girl she was.

  2. Awww mama. My middle will be 'graduating' from 5th grade tomorrow. Sniff. Your boy is handsome. And I love his Twins lanyard ;-) -PeazyT

  3. Thanks for that reminder....I have a freshly 3 week old little babe keeping me up all night and it's hard to remember that this time will become a distant memory. I think I'll smother him with sweet kisses instead of grumbling that I'm up to feed him for the 5th time. :)

    And congratulations to your son on his first job! How exciting for him!

  4. Congrats to him on getting a job! I'm sure he'll do great with 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! ;)

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...
