We're here!!

Well, we're here!

And there's no wifi, which means that I'm stuck using my Blogger app which sucks more than blogger itself...but HEY! At least it's something!!

We just figured out how to use the coffee pot, thank you google, and now, our day can commence!

Super windy right now, but supposed to be record breaking temps this afternoon, so I s'pose the breeze (read: gale force winds) will feel good!

We arrived last night to a FRIGID cabin and discovered the A/C was set at 60!! Totally thought I was going to start seeing my breath at any second.

We remedied it pretty quickly, but slept amazingly well snuggled under blankets (instead of on top of blankets at our un-airconditioned home!

Currently, I'm sipping a cup of coffee on an easy chair overlooking the lake...this is the life! Kids are watching Scooby Doo and we're planning breakfast in our new pie irons!

We forgot hamburger...good thing is that between Pal and Mr. Wonderful, they'll be going home frequently for baseball, work, and forgotten necessities...this is the up side of a "lo-cation"! ("Local Vacation"!) ;)

No "In the Kitchen with Gram" this week!

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 day...my 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 braiding...watch 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

You!
Yes, YOU!!
You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
Tonight.
Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post first...you know...so 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, well...is 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...
