The Launch of the Personals!

Okay friends...I think I'm ready!

Remember this post? Seems like I had a lot of interest in the "personals" idea I threw out there...soooooo...let's do it!

Ever since I've started this whole blog thing...I've always wanted a place for one stop blog shopping!

Somewhere you (or me, or your neighbor, or your cousin's uncle's best friend's's just easier for me to use a collective "you" know?!) can go and find other fabulous blogs.

And, I've also wanted to find a way to recognize some of YOU who visit my blog and leave me fun comments and read my posts and shake your heads thinking, "crazy nut job weirdo!"

So, this is what I've come up with...

If you would like to be "listed" in my personals...send me an email at fivecrookedhalos at gmail (dot) com (or, click on the goofy little photo in the upper left sidebar for my email address)! In the email, provide a link to your blog (or the URL is fine), the title and a brief "personal" about your blog (oh, and will you put "personals" in the subject line, pretty pretty please?!).

For personal would read something like this, "Mama M.: Married nut job weirdo of five, loves blogging about labor and delivery and daily life. I enjoy humor and not taking life too seriously. I do love pina coladas, but not getting caught in the rain."

You know...a little "teaser" to get people interested in clicking to your blog.

Then...once a week, I will highlight a blogger to be the "Date of the Week" (I'm working on buttons for both the "Personals" direct link, and the "Date of the Week"...and I'm not too tech savvy, so it might be a while!) and that blogger will be displayed right at the top of the Personals page and on my sidebar!

How does that sound? Any questions?

I'm really excited to launch this!

Spread the word...oh, and when you are "listed"...I have a cute little button for you to display on your blog, if you'd like!

All right...let's roll!


Oh, and I'll announce the winner of the Valentine's Day Extravaganza gift card tomorrow!

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!

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
