Not Me! Monday!


I was totally thinking of not participating in MckMama's Not Me! Monday, today! I've not been such a good girl that I'm afraid that I don't have any ammunition. But, then...I remembered...she's offering a prize...and I'm totally not a sucker for a prize, so I decided to dig into the depths of my brain, clear away the cobwebs, and see what I could find! This is what I unearthed:

I did not (once again) wash the same load of laundry twice...because I had not forgotten to toss it in the dryer and so it sat. It did not sit all damp in the washer and get all stinky and yucky smelling. No, I always learn from my mistakes, so that certainly couldn't have been me!

I am not resigned to tidying up this natural disaster of a home of ours. I have not been thoroughly enjoying wasting my precious time blogging and blog hopping lately...I am not putting on my "Responsible Mother and Wife" hat today so that I can (hopefully) accomplish something!

With one kiddo home sick from school, I am not relieved that that certainly exempts me from attending the last 8th grade football game, right?! Right? I mean, a sick kiddo can't go to the game, and she's not old enough to stay home by herself, so that means I'm excused, no? I do not not want to hear about babysitters, and they're glorious abilities. Nope, I don't!

On Friday night, we did not have gobs and gobs and oodles and heaps of relatives over. They did not stay so late, that I finally just said, "the heck with it", and put my jammies on, 'cuz I was all tuckered out! Nope, I am never an ungracious host!

Well, there. That'll do...it'll get me entered for a fun little prize, and that's what counts, right?!

Oh, and don't forget...there's just a bit of time left to enter the Mother's Necklace Giveaway!

  4. Guilty on the pajamas with guests over statement. I try to look cute but the longer they stay the more uncomfortable I get in my bootcut jeans and a cute fall sweater. Something's gotta give!

  5. Yes, I have forgotten if I put detergent in and said heck with it and washed again. More work? You betcha.

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 day...my 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 braiding...watch 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, well...is 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...
