Oh boy...

Here I find myself 27 days before Christmas, 26 days before the majority of my gifts are needed, 23 days until I start my 4 day work stretch before Christmas (my weekend AND my holiday to work...woe is the life of a nurse) and I've barely started. Oy.

Usually my mom and I do a Mall of America trip to get a jump start on Christmas shopping, which we didn't do this year because of Florida but which we've now both realized just how much shopping we actually got done! By the time Dubya's birthday usually arrives, I'm so deep in "Christmas mode" that I have to change gears and shut off the Christmas part of my brain to do his birthday shopping.

This year?

I was all "Dubya's Birthday mode"! Which isn't so bad, really, but means I'm very far behind.

Which means that every spare moment for the next 23 days I will be shopping. 

Maybe I'll win the Powerball tonight and I can just give out million dollar checks for Christmas.

Hey, that sounds like a win/win for everyone!

Powerball it is.


  1. Add me to your Christmas list, please and thank you. ;)

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

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...
