Five Question Friday! 3/8/13

My house is currently a disaster entire bedroom emptied of all of it's contents into my living room for carpet installation, paint in varying stages of completeness (more like "beginningness"), and, I have a confirmation party to host on Sunday. Ack.

I need a hug.

And maybe a stiff drink.

Please send help...and make sure to send a mop with them, as well.

Anyway, on day 3 of 3 at work and have to do some MAJOR grocery shopping today. Gracious. Why do I clump stuff together like this?

Let's get to the'll distract me. ;)

1. Does your family coordinate clothing for church on holidays like Easter?

2. How do you get out of a funk?

3. Online friends - real friendships or not?

4. What is the one food you must eat in a restaurant (not make yourself)?

5. What would happen in your home if you ran out of ketchup?


1. Does your family coordinate clothing for church on holidays like Easter?
For Easter, no, not really. Only the kids get new outfits...and they're usually "Easter-y" but not necessarily coordinating. Unless various shades of pastels are coordinating, then yes.

Christmas, however? Total coordination.

It becomes somewhat of an obsession for me to find the PERFECT coordinating outfits.

2. How do you get out of a funk?

Shopping, sleeping, taking a bath, talking to my hubby or my bestie. Lot's of various ways.

I totally wish I was a "clean to get out of a funk" chicks, or a "run to get out of a funk" chicks, but alas, I am not and when I am in a funk my house gets dirtier (see "sleeping" on above list) and my pocketbook slimmer.

3. Online friends - real friendships or not?

Absolutely real. My "online friends" are some pretty awesome ladies that I someday hope to meet in real life. I've had the pleasure of meeting some of them already and while I totally thought it was going to be a "get out your phone and tweet to each other" kind of meeting, it wasn't!

We talked, face to face, and laughed and joked and shared about our lives.

Just like people can meet spouses online, I believe we can also meet good friends.

Now, let's just hope they don't turn out to be 12 year boys hiding in their mom's basements pretending to be middle aged moms.

That'd be weird.

4. What is the one food you must eat in a restaurant (not make yourself)?

French Onion soup.

I've never tried to make it for myself because I fear it will be a big ol' disastrous failure. So, I just order it when I go out.

Also, french fries. We don't have a deep fryer, and that is totally necessary to have delicious french fries.

5. What would happen in your home if you ran out of ketchup?

Well, it's currently happening right now...and I'll be lucky if I survive the night. My children are circling me like feral animals, waiting to pounce.

Yes, it's true. We are out of ketchup. Alert the media, call in the National Guard, THE WORLD IS ENDING!!!! Never. I repeat NEVER before have I run out of ketchup.

I guess I took this pantry purge thing I was doing a bit too far. I mean, NO KETCHUP?!

I'm dying.

If you don't hear from me by this evening, you may want to notify the police...


Enjoy your weekends!!


  1. come on over we have cases of ketchup, my kids would starve if we did not have any at the house

  2. thanks for hosting babe. We are out of ketchup now and it's very scary.

  3. HA! You and your ketchup kill me. :)

  4. Aw, you should try French onion soup, I make it and it's really not that hard. I use the Better Homes and Gardens recipe. Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend!

  5. I like to polish my nails real bright and funky colors when I'm in a funk....of course if I have to go shopping to get the funky nail polish it works even better to pump up my spirits!

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!

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

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