Wow! What a day...

It was GO! GO! GO! from sun up 'til sun down today!

Miss E celebrated her First Communion today, and I woke to "Mom, can I put my dress on now?" Followed by (at 5, 10, 12.3, and 13.7 minutes, respectively...), "Mom, can I put my dress on now?" "Mom, now can I put my dress on?" "Mom, now?" "Can I put my dress on NOW, Mom?"

It was a beautiful day, all aspects of it! (Photos to come soon...)

Friday, we went to see "How to Train Your Dragon" with my bro, his girlfriend, and her son...and, lemme say...on behalf of ALL of us...WHAT A GREAT MOVIE!!!

We loved it! Totally want to see it again.

Okay...I wasn't gonna post this tonight...but, I decided to anyway!

Our "Date of the Week" for this week is the lovely, the talented, the youmayknowheras @brideleon:

Domestic Engineer, married to my high school sweetheart, and mom of 2 little monkey's. I blog about life, love and the pursuit of quiet time. To mix it up a little, I throw in my little knowledge of being eco friendly. I enjoy spending time with my family, watching the never ending pile of laundry grow and listening to the lovely sound of my two kids playing ever so nicely together. Pass the wine and Motrin please!

Stop over, give her a little bloggy love, and tell her Mama sent you! ;)

See ya in the am.

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

Yes, YOU!!
You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
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...
