Not Usually My Platform...

Okay, so Minnesotans, I have two words for you...SERIOUSLY??!!! (well, that's just one, but it'll do)

Al Franken? We are already portrayed as a bunch of frozen imbeciles by the media, then we have to go and prove them right?! I am (honestly) probably the most "apolitical" person I know, I hate politics. Loathe them. But this is enough to make even me get verbal!!

Back as an uninformed, 'cool' college student I did something bad (and no, it doesn't have to do with inhaling). I voted for Jesse Ventura. Yup, I'll admit it. Thought it'd be cool for good ol' MN to be represented by someone famous. Well, guess what? BAD DECISION!!! However, I learned my lesson...something, apparently, many other Minnesotans did not. Or perhaps they forgot how bad it truly was. Hollywood and politics don't mix. In my opinion, celebrities are a bunch of misinformed, uneducated idiots. Their job is to entertain us, not lead us and make decisions on our behalf.

Al Fraken is a comedian, a very raunchy, comedian. His job is to make us laugh, not make votes that affect our lives. The fact that MN has voted him into the Senate scares me. I am frightened for our future and what decisions will be made that will affect our lives. Maybe he will prove me wrong, but I'm guessing that come next voting season, a lot of people will be saying "Wow, I won't do that again." And that maybe, just maybe, MN will be smarter the next time a celebrity runs for office (well, maybe I would consider George Clooney...).

So fellow Minnesotans, this is not Stuart Smalley signing off, but I am hoping that Franken is "good enough, smart enough, and doggonit people" (will stop liking him)!

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...
