Some light housekeeping...

I was meaning to do this when I got my "new look"...but that time came and went and was interrupted by a couple of Mean Girls.

I am happy to say, the Mean Girl situation is resolving...sincere apologies have been offered, teachers notified, and hackles lowered...tho' Mama Radar is still in full force.

But, what I wanted to say, was...THANK YOU!! to Bloggy Blog Designz for the awesome work on my blog. I will fully admit, I was a difficult client.

I really tried not to be, but I realized I am very hard to please.

Any Naomi Campbell-ish diva moments, aside...I am incredibly pleased with their work! They stuck with me...didn't hide in a fox hole and wave a white flag...they aimed to please, and please is what they did!

So, Jenna and Whitney, thank you!

Also, along with the new look, I wanted to "unveil" new nicknames for my kiddos.

Actually, the nicknames aren't new to us, but they will be to you! These are my kiddos IRL nicknames...bestowed upon them by their weird uncles.

Friends, meet:

The Pal:

The Belle:



And, Baby Girl:

She has yet to grow into a nickname. They tried calling her "Dr. Kenneth Noisewater" for a bit, until I learned that that was what the dude in "Anchorman" called, his right...ah...ahem...I can't say it. Read it here.

Then, she tried on "Do Dat" for awhile. I'm unsure if that one has stuck or, until she reveals her nickname, she shall remain "Baby Girl".

'Cuz that's what she'll always remain to me.


One more thing...I'm pretty sure I want to uninstall Intense Debate. I've seen my comments plummet lately, and I think the extra steps are discouraging to some.

Comments on this? (I tried to do uninstall, but couldn't...kept getting an error code...) Anyone out there loving it and will come after me with pitchforks and torches if I uninstall it?

Or, are most of you saying YES!! Get rid of it?

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...
