Note To Self:

Dearest Bonehead Mama:

The next time

You see an orange crayon

Fall into the depths of the washing machine

And underneath the agitator

Try harder to get it out.


That's all. Carry on.

All my best,
You (me?)


  1. WOW. Ok you made me feel better. I got the wrath of the wife this weekend for f-ing up the laundry. Not checking for stains before drying, mixing white (mine &old) with darks. Yeah. But yours is worse, thanks for the pick me up. At least orange is a nice color

  2. I did that with a red crayon that dh had in his pants which he uses at work for plumbing mumbo jumbo stuff. I also dried it. Not a fun day in my house.

  3. wow that really sucks... That happened to one of my favorite white shirts...but it was a moth that made the brown spots.. gross. It flew in the back door and I guess straight into the load of whites.

  5. Oh, my... been there done that!

  6. Oh, that sucks. Also? Trident gum is a b!@ch to get off your dryer's drum.

  7. Oh that sucks! And you ruined your blogfrog shirt.... Ahhhh!

  8. Ours was a blue crayon...I have been there!

  9. Oh, man... Hubby once forgot to remove a pen from the pocket of some of his work pants. It ruined the entire load, but I secretly think it was a ploy for him to get new clothes...

  10. Purple crayon on my daughters all white bedding....I was sick...completely sick when I pulled it out and saw it...but I have noticed that the more it is washed, the more it comes out. And someone said something about ironing on a paper towel where the areas are and it will take it off??? Not sure how true that is, I'm not about to iron her sheets...or I'd try it out.

  11. Green the dryer...enough said :)

  12. Oh no...if it makes you feel any better (probably not) my friend washed a Sharpie in her scrubs once...let's just say, she ruined a whole load of clothes.

  13. Same here- but with purple...and different clothing.

  14. i've had that happen soo many times! i feel ya hun! but i can never find the stinkin things when i try and hunt it down haha

  15. I have had that happen. Not fun!!!
    I also hate it when family members forget about gum in their pockets.

  16. Oh dear! I'm afraid thats all I have ... lol

  17. I've done this accidentally for the family I used to nanny for! Use mule team borax to get it out!! You can find it where you buy your normal detergents! It's in a green box! It works like magic!

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...
