That was this weekend.


Even though my husband had to work late into the night Saturday, at least we had him in the morning.

Such is the life of an Agronomist. On Farmer's hours.

Bless the farmer's wives...for they have long hours to put up with!

I cooked my pants off. Kinda. You know, figuratively, not literally.

It ended up being a "Pioneer Woman" food fest over here...inadvertently. I made Chicken Parmigiana, Corn Chowder, and Chili (my own recipe, but with Masa in it...tasty!)...but slacked off on baking the cookies I've been meaning to try!

To top it off, I got a pedicure...a treat from a friend whose babes I watch here and there! You may remember them from here.

Tomorrow starts a tough week. A dear co-worker of mine passed away in a car accident last week...she left behind a husband and 5 beautiful children. My heart is breaking for her is so hard to grasp when a life has been cut too short. She will be laid to rest on Wednesday...please say a prayer for her family, I cannot imagine their pain right now.

Another co-worker lost her mom to an accident on Friday. Again, a life cut too short, too soon.

It's so hard to process tragedy. It certainly doesn't seem real...I'm not sure when it ever will, but the reality is that two families are laying their heads down tonight without their moms. I pray that God comforts them and helps to ease their pain.

Goodnight my friends...


  1. Praying for these two families and you too!

  2. So very sorry for your losses. :( It is terribly heartbreaking to lose someone so unexpectedly.

  3. Unfortunately, I am familiar with lives cut too short. Praying for all of them!

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

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
