2nd Annual Mr. Wonderfulest Contest!!!

Welcome, everyone, to the 2nd Annual Mr. Wonderfulest Contest! I am so exited to "meet" and read all about YOUR Mr. Wonderfuls!!

This contest was derived from my observation of tons of "mommy blog" profiles that spoke so highly of their spouse or significant other. Last year, as a fledgling blogger, and in honor of Father's Day, I hosted my very first Mr. Wonderfulest Contest.

Nine people linked up...and I was totally overjoyed! I LOVED reading their stories and getting to know the "silent half" of we mommy bloggers! When Father's Day appeared on my radar this year, I just KNEW I had to do this again. it is!

Mr. Wonderfulest Contest Rules: Write (or vlog) a blog post about why you think YOUR Mr. Wonderful should be 2010's Mr. Wonderfulest, then come back here and link up your post! If you don't have a blog, feel free to leave your "entry" in the comments below!

Remember, this doesn't have to be a can write about your dad or grandpa or brother or, heck, even your favorite Uncle Louie!

I will leave the linky open until Monday morning...and then I'll have my work cut out for me. Like I mentioned "" will suffice for this style of'll just be me, my 'puter, some Mr. Wonderfulest posts, and a whole lotta coffee!

Oh...and the prize?!!

A Visa gift card...

In the amount of $75 bucks!'s my Mr. Wonderfulest post!


Is my Mr. Wonderful. The man who swept me off my feet with his quiet humor, his gorgeous smile, and his kind ways. He romanced me with Starburst trails, potted weeds (and that's plural weedS, guys...not WEED), and steady heart.

He welcomed my first little man with open arms and blessed me with 4 more amazing children, to whom he is an incredible father. And, by incredible, I mean a fabulous example of a man. Camping outside, Boudary Waters trips, fort building, bon fire making, work ethic teaching, loving. He is one of a kind.

And, he is all mine.

He let's me scare He doesn't get mad when I scare him...even when I do it 73 times a day. He enjoys my cooking, tells me he loves me, complains when I call him 18 times an hour, and complains even louder when I don't call him 18 times an hour.

A staunch Rebuplican, he is...not afraid to stand up for his values, yet respectful when people disagree with him. He is strong and unwaivering in his faith, helping those around him to strengthen their relationship with God.

He is strong. And handsome. And kind. And hot. And smart. And gorgeous. And ambitious. And incredibly good looking. Oh, and did I mention that he's a babe? (WARNING!! Pioneer Womanish photo to follow!!!)

He is my Mr. Wonderful...and he is my everything.

I LOVE YOU, HON! Happy Father's Day!

    (It still takes me forever to get a post together, so if I can get one post a week up...that is amazing. I love your ideas! I was able to join in with your fun Valentine's extravaganza in Feb (thank goodness, I had some time off from work around that time!)

  2. What an excellent tribute to your man - butt shot and all!

  12. Sorry about entering twice! :-) I'd like to blame it on my computer, but it's more likely my computer skills that are the problem. I loved reading everyone's entries!

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

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
