Not Me! Monday!

It's that time again! Time to purge yourself of all the things you didn't do this week! Head over to MckMama's and see what other's "haven't" been up to!

I have not been tempted to declare my home a "natural disaster". I mean, you know, if I had the power to make such declarations. And, to be completely honest, it's not so much my home as it is my children's rooms. They are not so beyond the point of no return that the only thing that could save them at this point is a backhoe and a landfill. I do not feel the need to don a life preserver before entering their way!!! Not Me!!

I have not been living in a "sick house"...with a white flag flying outside my home, to announce to mail man, the milk man, the peeping Tom, that is suspected that the H1N1 virus has entered our home. I'm not suspicious that it actually wasn't the swine flu...sigh...and here I thought we were just gonna get it over with. But, no, I wouldn't hope for illness!! Not Me!!

I am not on a mission. I am not, such, a woman on a mission for "Hot Mom Hair" and stylish jeans that I ventured out of quarantine on a quest to find (insert echo-ey voice here): "Hot Mom Hair" that I nearly broke down in tears when every. single. stinkin'. salon wouldn't rearrange their schedules for me on Saturday. I mean, gosh...for some reason "a bride" with a pre-booked appointment took precedence over my whim. No, I am not an unorganized, woman on a mission...uh, uh! Not Me!!

I was not utterly annoyed at my children this morning. My E.W. spent the majority of the morning crying...first he didn't want to wear his Spiderman shirt, "'cuz the sleeves are too puffy (huh? puffy Spidey sleeves? Whoever heard of such a thing?), then, his big bro "took too much" cereal (sheesh, who died and made him the cereal police??), then he found out Miss E. had a tummy ache and was gonna stay home to see what transpires, and you'd've thought we just ripped his arm off. And, Big A., in all his teenage angst, "I don't have anything to wear!" (um, what's that you're wearing, right now?) "I need a home lunch!" (since when do you not like tacos?)...what ever happened to a nice, "I wuv you Mom!" But, no, I do not ever get annoyed with my kiddos! Not Me!

Well, hope you enjoy your week! It's definitely looking to be a chilly one here (today's high's? Not even 50!!!)


  1. LOL...please if you find the elusive hot mom hair could you sent it over my way???

    Glad I'm not the only one that does not get annoyed at her kiddos! Kim

  2. Love the post! I never get annoyed at my kids either! Not me!

    Glad to see you and I are both early Not Me! people! Love reading your blog!

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

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
