So, it turns out that a summer cold can render one completely incapable of forming coherent sentences to turn out a blog post.

Actually, it renders one completely incapable of forming coherent sentences period. Blog post or not.

Friday afternoon I found myself irritable and scratchy throated. (Can you verb "throat"? 'Cuz I think I just did...) By that night I was feeling yuck. Worked Saturday, came home, went to church (prayed to feel better, btw), came home feeling even yuckier, slept for a bit, took some photos and went to bed.

Sunday came, I woke up feeling even blechier, made it through work and came home and slept. And slept some more, and whined, and sneezed, and blew my nose, and whined some more, then sneezed some more, ate some ramen noodles and Rice-a-Roni, and went back to bed and GUESS WHAT?!

I actually did NOT die last night like I was certain was going to happen. Indeed, I woke up alive and *gasp* feeling a bit better! YEE-HAW!!!!

Through it all my husband was a champ! Either his "compassion bone" has grown, or I actually looked as sick as I felt because dude was a SAVIOR!! Let me sleep, checked on me, camped outside with the kids, made supper, did laundry, felt my forehead, tucked me in, and was pure awesome.

You know...funny thing is, he didn't kiss me though.

Next up...Valleyfair tomorrow!!! And tomorrow's "In the Kitchen with Gram" post? A yummy twist on Sloppy Joes!


  1. I am just recovering from my summer took about 2 weeks. Take care of yourself!

  2. Reminds me of my hubby ... Super attentive since I became pregnant, yet he deprives me of one of my favorites -- kissing!!

  3. I'm glad your feeling better! I had to giggle when I read your post - I finally found someone else who knows what Valleyfair is! I was born and raised in MN, but have lived in AZ for the past 9 years. People think I'm all kinds of crazy when I talk about Valleyfair! LOL Hope you have fun!

  4. I'm sorry you weren't feeling well but glad that you're feeling better.

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...
