1. What is an acceptable age for girls to start dating?

2. Do you think your kids should have summer homework?

3. Would you prefer to live without AC or heat?

4. What the worst thing about staying in a hotel? (Besides not being with your family)

5. So, do your kids really get "104 days of summer vacation"? (Bonus points for those of you that get this reference!)


----------------------------------------------------

1. What is an acceptable age for girls to start dating?
Um...never? Okay, okay, okay...30.


30 and suitors must complete a rigorous interview process beforehand.

Ugh. Fine. I'm kidding. I want my girls (and boys) to be married with children by the time they're 30, so the dating process can commence at age 23, and not a moment prior.

2. Do you think your kids should have summer homework?

NO!!! A big, fat, resounding NO!!


Summer is our time off...and I'm a firm believer in learning through living. Just because my kids aren't in school, doesn't mean they aren't learning...sure, they're not doing worksheets and assignments, but we're learning. Trust me.

Also, I'm a big believer in NO homework. My children are at school for 7 hours a day, I feel that is sufficient time for them to get the work done that they need to do. (Barring sick days and make up work, of course.)

Studying for tests? Sure, that goes, but average, everyday work? Please don't ruin the little time I get with my kiddos in the evenings by giving out oodles of homework!!

3. Would you prefer to live without AC or heat?

Well...here in good ol' MinneSOOOOOOta, we can't live, literally, without heat. We would die.


Yes, I am serious.

Our pipes would freeze and burst and we would turn into people shaped icicles.

With temps that drop WELL below freezing (-50 degrees, anyone? Okay, that's rare...but -30? Bet we see that every winter.) it becomes a hazard to one's health to not have heat.

So that is my final answer: AC. I can live without AC. (I do, indeed, live without it...)

4. What the worst thing about staying in a hotel? (Besides not being with your family)

For one thing? Those stupid hotels that use flat sheets in place of fitted sheets. I pulled out my most princessiest princess once upon a time and asked for a fitted sheet and guess what?


They had them.

I guess they save them for the princesses. (Or, you know, the really high maintenance guests, like me.)

5. So, do your kids really get "104 days of summer vacation"? (Bonus points for those of you that get this reference!)

No. Fer dumb.

We counted today, and, at best, we get 101 days...and that's if Labor Day is late.

Here's what my ideal school calendar would look like: School in session January, February, and March...off the rest of the year. Whaddya think?

Alright, I'll give you the last week in December and all of April until the snow stops and the weather warms up.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. -30 degrees????!!!! I. Would. Die. I said I can live without heat because I can always put more clothes (and blankets) on but I guess there is a limit. I'm not sure I could ever get warm enough in that cold weather!! Yikes!

  3. Kids should have summer time, free, play, fun summertime. That's what I remember as a child and I had a CHILDHOOD. I want that for my son!

    For me, I couldn't live without the air conditioner! We have two summers in New Orleans - Summer and Summer Lite. Summer is like steamy hot shower at all times, as early as 9am. ICK.

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...
