MIL of the Year

You know my BFF, Dr. J? She's a great story teller! I think what gets me most, is that she gets such kick out of her stories...she laughs and laughs and pretty soon I'm laughing and laughing...then we're both crying and laughing and gasping for breath. It's great!

So, she's telling us this story about her you tell me if this sounds like your

They were getting a new door hung...the contractor was over and Dr. J noticed the hardware was a little crooked. She walked closer to the door to have a better look and investigate with the guy.

Unbeknown to her, her sweet as pie MIL walked up behind her, also to get a better look. (Aside by me, when she told us this part of the story, her hubby pipes in under his breath..."Oh, so it's her fault now?"!!)

Dr. J, "Yup, that hardware is crooked."

Guy, "Huh, I never would've noticed."

Dr. J, taking a step back for a better look, steps on her Sweet MIL's toe. Dr. J takes a quick glance behind her, "Oh, my gosh, I'm so sorry!" she says quickly to her Sweet MIL, then turns back to the door issue.

Sweet MIL says, "Oh, no,'s okay"...and proceeds to walk into the kitchen.

Dr. J finalizes things with the door guy, and walks into the kitchen.

Her baby, B., keeps saying, "Grandma owie?"..."Grandma owie?"...Dr. J doesn't think much of it.

Then she sees her daughter walk in the kitchen...*gag*...Dr. J notices some blood...sees her daughter walk into the bathroom...*gag*...hears her daughter...*gag*..."it's just so bad I can't look at it"...*gag*. Dr. J walks into the bathroom, blood on her MIL's foot, all over the bathroom.

Dr. J says, "Oh, my gosh...Sweet MIL, what happened?"

Sweet MIL, "Oh,'s's's nothing...thank you! That toenail was really bothering me. I'm glad it's off now."

Dr. J, sees toenail dangling from toe, "OH!! I'm so sorry!!! Oh my gosh!!"

Sweet MIL, "Really, Dr. was really bothering me, it's just better off...really!"

Dr. J, scurrying willy nilly trying to decide what to do..."Oh my gosh...what should we do?!!! Oh, my gosh! Should we get a clippers, oh no...oh my gosh! What should we do?"

Sweet MIL, "Um...I're the doctor?!"

Dr. J..."Oh...yeah...that's right."

Gets Sweet MIL all fixed up...Door Guy says (he was privy to the whole scene), "Wow, that's some MIL you have...she thanked you for ripping her toenail off."

Dr. J, "Um, yeah...I know."

Huh, "Thank you, for ripping my toenail off"!!


  1. Ummmmmm.No. That sounds NOTHING like my MIL.

    Mine would never have been able to sneak up behind me. She would have been front and center the WHOLE time, telling the door guy how to properly install the door. And then, when I walked up to see the progress, my toenail would have been the one ripped off.

  2. Mine either. This lady does have a great MIL.

  3. hahahaha too funny. my almost mil, would have been right on the door guy bout it being crooked. she is mouthy. but i love her lol

  4. Ummmm, can I have her MIL? Mine is about as opposite from that as you can get. She'd have been in the middle telling the door dude what to do, and I'd have been the one stepped on, and it would have been my fault for getting in the way.

  5. That is AMAZING!!!! Poor Sweet MIL!!! I hope she gets one amazing Christmas present!!!

  6. Aw!! A real, real, real sweet MIL! Good thing, there was a doctor in the house...but wait...because there was a doctor in the house, the toenail came off to begin with...

    oh, poor Dr. J... ouch!

    Blessings & Aloha!

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!

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!

You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.

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...
