Real Time...March 16th.

Whoa...been FOREVER since I've done a "Real Time" post, no?!

So, here's what's happening, in real time, in my home...

I have a sleeping Baby Girl beside me. No matter how big she gets, she'll always be my Baby Girl...or Baby...or "the babe". Being the youngest in the family means she'll always be saddled with that nickname.

Mr. Wonderful is in the kitchen...I can hear papers turning, I think he's working on our taxes. I used to get excited about taxes and getting a little money back every year. Then, my husband became part owner of an LLC and suddenly, my tax return DISAPPEARED and the money that we show as "income" on our income taxes is NO WHERE near what our actual income is. Something about having to claim the business profit as our income? Anyway, now tax time makes me anxious. I loved the simplicity of the days of Turbo Tax and early February filings. Sigh...such is life.

The rest of the house is quiet which leads me to believe this: 1. The boys are asleep and 2. Belle is watching YouTube videos of EleventhGorgeous or Brooklyn and Bailey or Beautylicious Insider. Which makes me wonder: WHAT is it about some vloggers that just MAKES them so watchable? I mean, you know, not that you'd every catch me watching EleventhGorgeous all by myself. Ahem. Moving on...

There are planes flying around like crazy tonight. We live nearish a small airport and goodness, there's been a lot of air activity tonight!

I'm SUPER anxious for spring. I know, just a couple of weeks ago I was longing for a snow storm, but then? YOU GUYS...we had a stretch of absolutely, positively GORGEOUS weather. 60-70º, sunshine and that sun on my cheeks and the fresh air smell on my kiddos made me ALL SORTS of ready for spring. Ohhhhhhhhh, how I want nice weather now! Currently, we're back to 40's. Amazing how warm 40º feels after a stretch of 20º days and how cold 40º feels after a stretch of 60º days. Such fickle creatures we Minnesotans are!

In other news, the Mr. and I enjoyed a weekend away last weekend. Went with my bestie and her hubby to a resort and had an AMAZING time! Tried my first Moscow might very well have been my last Moscow Mule as well. It was a weird drink to me...kinda tasted like my great-grandma's musty cabin...but it got better the more I drank it! Weird.

Well, goodnight my friends! I have a Hump Day to tackle tomorrow...woe is the life of a full-time working mama.


  1. I'm the same way with "my baby." He's 2 now, but I still refer to him as "the baby."

  2. time away with your husband is the best. I am so trying to get back to blogging. it is like little pictures into lives. I am nervous about taxes. we always get back but I am worried with selling soap it is going to hurt me this year.

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!

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...
