14 Days

Today marks 14 days left until I am officially on summer vacation!! I cannot even begin to explain the happiness that makes my heart leap when I think about the time, spread out before me, to spend with those who mean the most to me!

'Course, we'll be smack dab in the midst of a home overhaul, but I'm choosing to look at that like an adventure. I mean...what other choice do I have, right? ;)

To top it off, my baby bro comes home from dental school for a month in June. I see a lot of beach time and sunshine in my life soon! The kids are counting down the days. My biggest boy is 10...TEN!!!...days away from his high school graduation. For real, people, HOW did this happen? How can my baby be old enough to graduate from high school and begin the BIG steps toward independence?

Hold me.

Now, we need to get this weather to start cooperating...two years ago, the kids jumped in the river on Mother's Day...last year we had sunshine and buds on the trees...this year, I wonder if warm weather and sunshine will ever come?!

Happy's to hoping you have a fantastic week!

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...
