Note to Body...

Hi's me, Mama.

I know that I've been neglecting you lately, and for that I am's just's just that you don't seem to listen very well.

You see, I'm an instant gratification kinda gal. When I exercise (and yes, I realize it makes you all hot and sweaty and grody feeling) you are supposed to respond. Like, instantly.

I don't want to work real hard at fact, I'd prefer to not have to do it at all, but you don't seem to agree, which means that I must, in turn, make you all hot and sweaty. If you could just oblige, by springing back into shape after a work out or two, we'd both be happy.

Do you think you can do that? Make it real easy on me? It'll benefit you in the long run...I promise.

Oh, and one more thing...when I do work out, could you please do me a favor and not get so sore that I have a hard time walking up stairs? I'd really appreciate that.

Wait...I thought of another thing. I'd like to be able to eat whatever I want, whenever I want without any extra padding on my (our) love handles nor extra growth on my (our) saddle bags.

I hope I'm not asking too much...I'm just real, real glad we could have this talk.

All my love,


  1. Oh my god. Reading this, I thought you copied it from me. Does this mean I am a woman too?

  2. Ha Ha... Let me know if your body listens because if so I'll read it to mine! It's so frustrating when you don't see any changes!

  3. I have had this conversation with my body several times, and it never listens!

  4. I've been having the same conversation with my body. But it seems to not be listening either and actually I think it's mad because it's responding the other way! I guess I just have to talk louder!

    So funny! Thanks for sharing your talk - one day maybe it will listen!

  5. If only my body would hear and comply with the same message...

  6. Speaking of, are you doing that "Hot and Healthy" deal again like you did last year? I first found your blog right towards the end of the series...but I'd LOVE to do it this time around- I need the motivation!

  7. You know what? I may just have to have a sitdown with mine as well!

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... (Lemme just inte
