Happy Birthday America!!

My favorite patriotic song for you to listen to during this post! ;)

I just want to take this day...this day we, as Americans, celebrate our freedom and our great country's birth, to say how much I love my country.

I am typically a patriotic person, but on the 4th of July, I am often overcome with emotion and pride for my country...

And...most of all...for our military. For the men and women who selflessly protect and defend our country and our freedoms.

Thank you.

May God bless you and protect you!



  1. I love this song too. Happy Fourth of July! I hope your family has a wonderful day!

  2. This is a great song...Happy fourth too you as well!

  3. That is my favorite song. Thanks so much for sharing it.

  4. I love that song! It always makes me tear up. Happy 4th! Be safe!

  5. Happy 4th! Have fun and stay safe!!

  6. Happy 4th, dear friend! Hope you're having a great weekend with your beautiful family.

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...
