"First Date" and other stuff!!

Have you checked out the "First Date" from my Personals page? Check out my far right side bar or here for the deets!!


It has been one heckuva fantastic weekend!

After MUCH debating and agonizing over the decision, I decided not to meet some awesome blog friends out for Girl's Night Out...I was majorly craving some family time, and I cashed in BIG time!

On the family time, that is...I'm hoping the girls don't ban me from future GNO's 'cuz I was such a party pooper this time!! (Please?!!!)

Friday night, we played "Apples to Apples"...have you ever played this game? It's a fave around here!

Miss E. won, Big A. cheated...and I cried.

'Cuz I'm a sore loser like that. ;)

Yesterday, we celebrated Big A.'s birthday (yes,'s how we roll around here!!) with some awesome beef stew and cake (that, ah...ahem...I couldn't put candles, he blew out a lighter. Lame. I know...), and today, we had brunch with the in-laws!

It was so nice to get my fill of family!

Now, as we head into the work week, my heart is full, my mind is relaxed...and, my house is trashed.


I've got laundry comin' out of the wazoo.

Looks like I know what I'll be doin' tomorrow (wishing we lived in a nudist colony with no possessions...).

Anyone wanna come help?


  1. Nope, sorry, I have enough of my trashy house ;)

  2. Ha ha ha, trashed house here too! Glad you had some quality family time....sort of ;-)

  3. Sounds like you had a nice weekend. I'll help you with your trashed house if you help me with mine. Seems like I clean and 10 minutes later it's a mess again. Frustrating!

  4. I have a gigantor mess going on over here. It will take me the rest of my natural life to get things back in order.

  5. Oh uhm good luck then. Sending some motivation over to you!

    Love this Personals thingy. I already grabbed the button ;-) Thanks for doing it! Good job!

  6. Yes do like the ideal of nudist but would rather wash clothes.

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
