While the Cat's Away...

Mama M. will play!! ;)

Mr. Wonderful and Big A. took off today on a manly deer hunting weekend.

mr.wonderful nine point buck hunting opener weekend
Which leaves me "widowed" with four small children.

We live in the middle of the woods, surrounded by cornfields...

Which means at this time of the year we are surrounded by hung-over men in blaze orange camo, bearing guns.

Irrational fears set in...

And my children aren't allowed outside unless they are wearing blaze orange head to toe.

I think I'm booking a trip to Disney next year.

Irrationally yours,


  1. I hate hunting season, I'm pretty much widowed all month too. ugh

  2. That would totally creep me out! Middle of nowhere..corn do you sleep at night!?!

  3. Jason Mraz? adorable? yes. i've hit the replay button on that song 5 times already. i'm in love with that song.

  4. I definitely think that escaping the creepy hungover men and going to disney sounds like a party!!!

  5. We live in the boonies too and a few years ago a bullet whizzed by our neighbor and lodged in his kids' swing set. Don't even get me started on hunters that shoot around houses...ughhh

    Great blog!

  6. I don't think your fear is irrational, in this case.

  7. I don't think you are being irrational at all! We live in the city so no hunting here unless you like squirrel roast.

  8. Hey I live close to my neighbors and still when my husband is gone for the night, I am a mess!

    Yay Disney!!

  9. don't feel bad. When deer season is here..ESPECIALLY duck season..i'm single! lol at least that's what i tell my boyfriend!

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!

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!
