Real Time...

Having just (finally!!) updated Five Question Friday to include my favorite condiment, I am sitting here, with wet hair because I took a shower at 11 pm at night.

We had two days of fall weather. High 60's, low 70's breezy and full of sunshine and I'm looking at the forecast and seeing mid to upper 80's for the next two days. Boo. I am so ready for long sleeves, jeans, and these Frye riding boots. Small problem though. I don't own those boots. 

I see a new "save up for" goal in my future!

This evening I went to my in-laws to take some photos of them for their 50th wedding anniversary. They have quite the story to the beginning of their relationship...met, engaged within a couple of weeks and married within a few months. 

My SIL had the idea to interview them, and their siblings, on the beginning of their relationship (and the longevity of it) and I was watching the "footage" of my BIL interviewing them, one at a time, and LOVED that we did this! I actually popped some popcorn and felt like I was watching a movie!

Note to everyone out there...interview your parents. Not only will you have footage talking about their life, you will have them on record, forever. You'll forever be able to hear their voice and laughter.

It was so wonderful!

Now...editing. Ugh. Two hours ++(not including sibling interviews) worth of video condensed into a 10-15 minute time slot. Wish me luck.

Tomorrow (or, for most of you, today) Gram and I are doing her version of carrot cake! A birthday party for Hambone on Tuesday, a conference on Thursday that I'm heading down to on Wednesday night, NOTHING Friday, and a family wedding ~3 hours away (overnight, again) on Saturday.

Sigh. Gonna be a busy week.



  1. You do video editing? I do as well. When I was 19 I ran around with a video camera at my grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary and then about 3 years later I finally got around to editing it all together. It was very fun to go back and see all of it!

  2. Those boots only go up to size 10. My size 11 feet are feeling very left out of this wonderfullness. :(

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!

You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.

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...
