Wowza, my friends! I feel like one blessed lady, that's for sure! ;) After a hard day at work, I came home to find two awards and a blog header gift...*sniff, sniff*...gosh, it made my night much better! So, thank you!

And, without further ado...

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Michelle! For somehow knowing I am a computer un-savvy girl without a clue as to how to give my blog a spark!! You rock!

And, to Stacy, who awarded me with (another!!) Lovely Blog award!!! Does this mean I'm extra lovely?! Oh, wait...guess it's a blog award, not a me award, huh?!! Thank you!!

To the hilarious, wonderful ladies over at The Suite Life of Lucy and Ethel, thank you for the "Honest Scrap" award! Love it, love your blog!!

Turns out I have to list 10 honest things about myself (you know, "Honest Scrap"), so here goes:

1. I'm horribly, utterly disorganized. Terribly...just ask Mr. Wonderful, I'm sure he'd be happy to tell you all about my disorganization! Ugh...I frustrate myself, sometimes!

2. You know those awesome yellow flats? Um...they're a half size too small. I just had to have them, tho'!!

3. I love giving birth. Crazy, I know! But I love being in labor and delivering a baby. What an amazing feeling! (And, for the epidural here!! That's how much I love it!)

4. I'm terrified of death. My biological father passed away when I was very young (Tiny Girl's age)...I have no memories of him, and I think that is what terrifies me. I have made Mr. Wonderful promise (many, many times!!) that if I were ever to die, to please not let my children forget me. Thankfully, though, my mom remarried an awesome man, who is my dad in every way, shape and form in my eyes and heart! (oop, just got a little teary there...)

5. I'm kind of a slacker, which is why I'm gonna stop at 5 honest things! I know, I know...I'm sorry! My award won't get taken away, will it?!! ;)

Thank you, ladies, for making my day! This is one appreciative Mama!!

Much love,


  1. You are so very welcome! I'm glad I could make you smile :)

  2. congrats- you totally deserve them!!

  3. Yay for the new blog header! It's adorable!

  4. Oh, since i am just catching up on your post...I didnt realize until this one that it was a new header than when you posted about doing the new background sides.

    Your header is perfect!

    Congratulations on your awards!

    And wow! you love labor and delivery??? No epidurals here...ours weighed 8lbs 2oz, 9lbs. 2oz, and 8 lbs, they were pretty quick... 2 hrs, 40 min, 6 min(from when they broke my water to birth)...and I loved everything about our newborn babies...but oooh, can't say that I love the labor adn actual delivery part! Wow! ...but then again, popping a pimple, is way too much pain for me!

    You are an amazing woman! haha

    Blessings & aloha!

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 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

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 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... (Lemme just inte
