Here we Go!!

Well, it's finally time...we're heading to Orlando tomorrow!

My girl, my mom and dad and I are headed for fun in the sun for 6 days...a whirlwind of theme
parks crammed into 5 full days! Actually, scratch that, 4 days. 2 travel days.

We're at a hotel in near the airport and I've already received 2 phone calls from crying children at home. They miss me...but, it so much easier for me to leave them in the fabulous care of their daddy and not worry!

A little background...my parents have a tradition for their grandchildren that when they turn 11, they treat them to Disney...and a "corresponding" parent gets to tag along with only park tickets and airfare as an expense! (That's why I'm leaving my crying kids at home...they'll get their turn.)

In other news, this sweet boy?


I was just asked to be his Godmother!!!!

I am honored to have been asked...love that little munchkin!!!

Next time you'll hear from me, it'll be from sunny FL!

  1. That is such an awesome gift! I'm sure your little girl will feel very special that this trip is just for her and she will have beautiful memories from it. Don't feel guilty about leaving the other children at home, just bring them a little souvenir so they feel included. Hope you all have a wonderful time here in Florida =)

  2. Hi there, I do believe your web site could be having web browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Other
    than that, great site!

  3. The Pal is really to old to be crying for you when you leave home. :) And don't worry, Baby Girl was sad when I took her but cheered right up and is currently playing PlayDoh very happily. We are leaving soon for Birthday lunch at school.

Coming soon...

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...
