My Grandpa...

I've mentioned before that my Grandpa is pretty much the bee's knees...he'll help you in an instant, he knows how to fix anything and everything (might not be the "right" way to fix it, but fix it he will!!), he's young at heart and spry and enjoys coming to the kids' events and is just pretty much awesome. 

(Ha! Caught him off guard in this photo!!)


He's also quick with the one liners.

Here's a couple recent ones:

Gram and I were cooking something delicious, Gramp tried it and said, "I take back everything I was thinking about you. Not everything I said, 'cuz it's already been said. Once a bell's been rung, you can't take back the ring!"

I died. Oh dear heavens, I just died.

Then there was this, Gram was writing a list with a marker that wrote with a very bold (read: fat) line: "You can't write with that thing, it spreads out too wide...like some women's hips!"

Gram had a good comeback for that one, but I was too busy laughing to remember what she said!

Then there are these "Gramp Regulars":

"Now you're loggin' with a pitchfork!" (Translation: You're doing a good job!)

"Let's DO something, even if it's WRONG!" (Translation: We've been standing around much longer than is okay with grandpa!)

Love this guy! Never a dull moment with him around!

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...
(Lemme just interject here...sorry for …
