If it Ain't Broke...

Don't fix it, right?!!

Or no?

I mean...I was just thinkin' (and that thar's a scary thought...me, thinkin', and all)...but, I was.

Thinkin' that is.

So, when you fix something, it means it's broken, no? I mean...you wouldn't fix something that wasn't broken right?

Wrong.

It makes me laugh...this whole "fix" word...so many ways to use it:
"I'm fixin' to get a move on..."
"I want to fix you up..."
"I've gotta fix my hair..."
"We fixed the dog..."
"My hubby's fixed..."

Okay...it's the last one that really got me. And, lemme just say..."I ain't passin' no judgement!!!" In fact...we're in that last category...if you know what I mean...*wink wink*!

But, here's what was coursing through my little brain...if something's broken...then you fix it right? You fix an engine, you fix a lamp...see what I mean? And, on the flip side...something is broken if it doesn't work the way it is supposed to, right?

Right? (Well, unless we're talkin' horses...'cuz you "break" a horse, to make it work right...right? Or not...I dunno much about horses...)

But...if you fix a...well, let's say a human...aren't you really breaking it? I mean...you're making it not work the way it's supposed to...so, shouldn't we really say, "My hubby's broken?"..."We broke my hubby?"

Or...if you live in my neck of the woods, sub "busted" for "broken"...you'll fit right in.

As in..."my hubby's busted"...oh, wait. That could have other connotations.

Connotations that include things like jail cells or angry women running after their husband's car with a golf club, causing him to crash into a fire hydrant and a tree...hypothetically, you know. Yeah...busted can mean a lot of things, too.

We won't go there...

So, fixed...is really broken.

I think I'm gonna start a new thing..."Yo...so, is your hubby broken?" "You gonna get broken?"

Or, maybe...perhaps, I won't.

It's a curse to live with this brain of mine...

Really...it's a curse.

Later dudes...

  1. But the question is... Is it fixed, or still broken?

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...
