The Announcement...

No...I am not pregnant! (Sheesh! Would you stop thinking that?!!)

Remember the whole Apple post? That wasn't even a week, bun in the oven!! (Phew!!)

I'm just stickin' to my word and telling you about the fun stuff headed your way!

So, you already know about the Birthstory Blog Hop tomorrow...but, I've got a BIG week planned next week!

In honor of Valentine's Day!

Starting Sunday (the 7th) and coming to a rip-roarin' halt on Valentine's's gonna be all about YOU over here!

(Well...and a little bit of me, too...sorry.)

Here's my plan...I am gonna have us a Valentine's Day Extravaganza! It's true...I wanna know all about YOU and your significant other.

Plan is, I'm gonna put up a "theme" for the day (how you met, your favorite date, engagement stories, etc.), I'll throw in a MckLinky, then you write a post on the theme and come on over and link up!

The "themes" for each day will have a sort of "chronological" order...(meet, date, engagement...etc), participate as far as you want (I'll try to throw in a way for anyone who isn't married, engaged, dating, "seeing someone", etc. etc., to participate too)...or you can just say, "the heck with you! This is dumb...I'm outta here! Nut job!"

It's totally up you.

I'll even throw in a fun giveaway for everyone who links, the more you link up...the better your chances of winning! Word on the street is that Visa giftcards are a fun prize.

So, I'll be giving away another Visa giftcard! (It may just be that my word is on the street...and I think giftcards are the bee's knees...)

So...that's the news for next week...

I also want to tell you about a project I have brewing...

I am so grateful for all of you who come here and read my goofy stuff...I wanna give a little acknowedgement...a little recognition, to y'all!

Plus...I love finding new blogs...reading fun, here's my plan:

I am going to start a "Personals Ad" page for bloggers!

No, no, no...not a place to find a date...a place for you to submit your blog, a brief "personal" about you and your blog, I'll link it...and...

Every week I'll highlight a "date of the week"...I'll choose a blogger that has submitted their personal ad to be the date of the week!

When I'm ready to launch it...(hopefully in the next week or so...), I'll make an announcement about how, when, where to submit your blog!

Looking sooooo forward to our "dates"! ;)

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

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 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, 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
