Surprises...and fun stuff!

Last night, at work, I was surprised by this:

My sweet Mr. Wonderful sent me these gorgeous flowers...'cuz he missed me! Between camping in the wild with our children, business conferences, and my evening work schedule, we haven't seen much of each other! What a fun surprise...he used to be the most romantic guy when we were little surprises, flowers, candy trails leading to a sweet card. Then, well, we got married! I joke that he stopped being Mr. Romance as soon as the church doors slammed shut! Sigh...looks like he still has it in him!

I also have (Achoo!) this nasty summer (Achoo!!) head cold...seems like (Achoo!) I can't go for more than (Achoo!) 14 seconds without (Achoo!!) sneezing! Darn colds (Achoo!), I hate being sick in the summer. (Achoo!!!) He thought maybe the flowers would brighten my day...and they did (now, if they could only make this cold go away!).


In other, fun news...I'm handing over control to a guest blogger tomorrow! Yup, my bestie, Tara, is takin' the reins for the day! And what she posts will be as much of a surprise to me, as it is to you!

She has some fabulously funny stories...and I'm so very excited to hear (see?) what she has to say!

Until then, my friends...


  1. Awww! How sweet! Beautiful flowers!!

  2. How beautiful! I can't remember the last time I received flower???

  3. Isn't is great when the men in our lives "get it"? I'm not always a fan of fresh flowers, cause they die...yet when my King shows up with them I love it!

    Hope you're feeling better soon.

  4. What a nice picture to see flowers from your husband. Hope you feel better.

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!

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... (Lemme just inte
