Continued Celebration!

Just when I thought I couldn't possibly consume another 12,000 calories in one day...

I'm gonna do it again!


Um...okay...well...if I were to be completely honest, it'll probably be more than 12,000 calories.

You know...maybe I should take up Olympic swimming a
s a hobby. Help me burn some of these calories.

Anyone know how to get ahold of those Olympic folks?

See if they'd want me?

Ahem...


Moving on...

So, today, we're celebrating Thanksgiving, again!!

And the creme de le creme?

The piece de resistance?

The golden nugget (or something)?

I'll get to watch a football game of epic
proportions!!

Really, you should be envious of me.

Or not.

For today, my friends, is when the annual "Pig's A**
Bowl" takes place at my parents!

My dad,
(This is the Old Man)


My bros and Big A.:
(The Great One...And Big A.)

(This is Treehorn)
(The Chosen One)
Yeah, those five...they'll be takin' on my uncle, his sons and son-in-law, and his grandson in a Bowl like no other.

And, it ain't a pretty sight.

Trust me on that one.

I'll likely be putting my nursing skillz to work...seems like there's always a knee to the head in one of these games...and, I'm not so sure it's accidental.

And, to be completely honest. I like to see 'em suffer...so, actually, no nursing skillz will be handed out to anyone taller than me...unless, of course, it's my Big A.

Then I will...but for the rest of 'em?

Nah. (You should hear 'em talk smack!! It's hilarious!! But, they totally deserve what's comin'!)

I love these get togethers.

A buncha hoodlums and a few perfectly pretty people (ahem...I like to place myself in the latter group) gathering to eat, laugh, eat some more, talk smack, laugh some more...and then eat again!

Next year...I'll invite you. ;)

Happy Thanksgiving, again!!

  4. That sounds like a TON of fun...and I am a little jealous!! I don't know when it became cool to stay in on a Saturday night with the kids...but it is!! So that is what the hubs and I are doing tonight. Hope the game went well!

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 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!


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 first...you know...so 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, 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...
