Friends, this girl can't party. With a capital CAN'T.

Went to a birthday party, followed by a graduation party chaser...and wound up staying up until 3:45 am. (Wait...maybe that means I still can party?!!)

THREE FORTY-FIVE!! That's like...all night long, to me.

We knew this was gonna be a rockin' party, so we brought our pop up camper and tucked our kiddos into bed and continued to dance and laugh and chat and show a whole bunch of 18 year olds how to party.

Er...maybe it was the reverse. I'm not sure...but, did you know that the cool way to dance these days is to bounce? Uh huh. Just hop up and down. That's it.

Sheesh. That is one thing I wish would've been cool when I was younger...since I lack rhythm of any kind, bouncing is something I think I could do.

It also made me realize how much I do NOT want my daughters to grow up. I do NOT want my daughters to bounce at dances. 'Cuz what happens when a woman bounces? Well...ah...certain things on her bounce as well...and that makes every dude pay more attention to said bouncing.

I don't like it. Makes me feel dirty...and like I wanted to pass out sports bras to the whole lot of 'em. On second thought, I'm glad it wasn't cool when I was younger!

Also...what is it with girls developing so early these days?! There was a 15 year old there, who could've passed for 20...and I kept thinking, "Never. Never ever ever will my daughters be allowed out of the house without me or a Judo trained protector, if they look like that. Amen. End of story."


I'm so old. And tired.

I need a nap...or, more like 24 hours of solid, uninterrupted sleep.

I'll be back later tonight with our Date of the Week...right now? I'm off to my mom and dad's for a fish fry!



  1. early development can be attributed to the growth hormones and chemicals given to the animals people eat to make them grow faster and produce more meat/vegetables. thats why organic is the best way! :) :)

  2. I think we need pictures of the late night partying!

  3. Well, it sounds like the 15 year old's parents shouldn't allow their daughter to dress like she's 20. The girls today are trying to grow up too fast and wearing makeup too early...I could go on. But they are physically looking older too which I believe is contributed to growth hormones in our food.

  4. I feel you on the whole bouncing thing I don't care for it either LOL! Reading this made me happy I have boys because I think my poor daughters would end up dressing like the Amish if my husband had a say LOL!

  5. I agree with you! Girls these days are growing up way too fast! Glad you had fun though :)

  6. I'm thirty, and I'm still waiting for that Puberty Fairy to pay me a visit...

  7. Obviously my mother didn't feed me enough hormone-ridden beef.

  8. I agree with Jessica - I want to see late-night party pictures! I'm scared for what kind of dancing is going to be popular in 15 years when Georgia is a teenager...

  9. I have 6- and 4-year-old daughters, and I don't want them to grow up too fast. Bouncing? Seriously? That's awful. I freaked when my neighbor told me they caught their 15yo daughter "sexting." That pretty much makes me want to never give them a cell phone.

    I need to get me some shotguns to keep the boys away. And no parties or cell phones for them.

  10. I totally agree with you! I just turned 28 and when my friends and I were 15 we were riding our bicycles around and being KIDS. But these days 15 year olds are wearing too much makeup, worrying about boys and texting. Where did childhood go!

  11. I had no idea that bouncing was the "cool" dance move now. Holy cow when did I get old? LOL!

    I think maybe I'll keep my daughter locked up with yours. Good idea! Oh wait...did you eve say that? Maybe it's just me thinking this way...

  12. LOL I don't think I'll let my little girl out of the house without a Judo trained protector either! hahaha that cracked me up and reminded me that she will never date (until 30!!! hahah)

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!

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...
