A Late Night Date...

Seems these Sunday dates get late, sometimes!

I spent most of today at, probably, the most gorgeous home I've ever stepped foot into. Puts my dream house to shame, really.

I didn't want to leave...I kicked and cried and clung to the door jamb as they shooed me out the door. I made my body limp and chanted "HELL NO, I WON'T GO!!!"

Then, I sat on the front step until I got hungry and had to leave to eat something before my blood sugar plummeted and I got all crabby. Now, I'm picking the splinters from the door jamb out from under my fingernails.


But, anyway...enough about my's time for this week's date!

I am pleased to announce our Date as:

I'm Andrea, a southern newlywed married to my handsome handyman. I enjoy all things crafty and cheap, DIY, Southern favorites, cooking, and OK State football. Join me as I learn the ins & outs of married life, DIY, and eventually mommyhood.

She is the MOST amazingly crafty person...and I want her as my best friend! Stop on over there, see what she makes and tell her Mama sent you!

See ya in the am!

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.
