A (very, very) Late Date!

While I wait for some late night Benadryl to lull me into a deep, peaceful sleep, I thought I'd get our Date of the Week up!

It was a busy weekend...I was able to score a bonus day off today, and spent it with my family at our church's bazaar. Lot's of fun, really hot, blew a wad of money and consumed waaaaaayyyyyy too much caffeine.

Hence, the Benadryl.

So...before it kicks in, I better finish this post!

Friends, I'd like to introduce you to this week's date:

Written by TexasHeather, a 30-something "ex-pat", living in Brazil, raising 3 boys and living to blog about it. Because my life is a random thing, my blog is a random place, and I like it like that. I hope you do, too.

Stop by and say 'hi' to Heather...they just got a gorgeous new puppy...who has been graced with (probably) the best name ever. IMO, of course! ;) Go check out that gorgeous puppy, and Heather's awesome blog...and tell her Mama sent you!

Thank you all who left me such fabulous advice on traveling with a boatload (er...make that a van load) of kids!

Next up: Destination tips...


  1. Benadryl is one of those magic little pill's that makes everything all better sometimes :)Hope that you got a good nights sleep.

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...
