Way back in November, when Belle and I (and my mom and dad) came home from Disney World, my babe had seen this "It's so FLUFFY!!!!" photo of Belle, that I had sent to my hubby:

So, when she opened her Edith hat souvenir:

She was, well, somewhat pleased, but apparently had been hopeful for the fluffy unicorn.

Months later, she was still talking about it..."Mama, when you go back to that place with Dubya, will you plllllleeeeeeaaaaassssseeeee get me that 'Spicable Me unicorn?". Good golly.

It tugged at my heart! I was >thisclose< to getting it for her when we were there, but the whole carrying it around all day/getting it to fit in luggage deterred me. And I regretted it ever since.

Then EUREKA!! Or, more appropriately, "Lightbulb." (name that very obvious movie)...her birthday was approaching! So, one night, while in the comfort of my bed, I googled Universal Studios store and LOW AND BEHOLD there it was. That fluffy little unicorn.

A couple of clicks later, and that sweet thing was on it's way here!

I nearly gave it to her early...I was so excited to see her reaction...but I held out. And I'm glad I did, because when she opened her last present, this is what we were treated to:



  1. Hey, I want one too!! Love the look on her face when she finally got it!!

  2. Aw, that's so sweet!!! I love giving gifts to people who react 'out loud'!!! Precious!!

  3. Awww, that is so adorable, you can see the excitement on her face. One happy little princess.
    I love Dispicable Me. Awesome film. and it really is Soooo Fluffy!

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!

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...
