14 Hours.

Is what I slept last night.

Well, more like 13, 'cuz when my adorable husband tried to quietly come to bed, he stepped on a plastic bag on our floor (*gasp*!! Yes, our bedroom floor is currently a minefield of plastic bags, tissue paper, wrapping paper, bows, and dirty socks. Forgive me.), yeah...he stepped on this bag and woke me up.

After I was awake, I discovered that I was in need of some ibuprofen and, heck, while I was at in, why not add in a Benadryl to help me get back to sleep...I was kinda afraid that with 5 hours of sleep already under my belt, my body might revolt at the thought of more sleep.

That Benadryl kept me going right up until 9 o'clock...leaving me feeling guilty for not getting up to tell my kids good-bye for the day, but, also leaving me feeling incredibly refreshed and rested!!

And, slightly stressed.

I've got so much to do!!! Wrapping and baking and grocery shopping and more wrapping and making sure all the kids have the same number of gifts under the tree lest I want World War 3 to start!!!

Ack! I need help.

Benadryl last night...No-Doz tonight.

(PS...I just don't have it in me to do the last installment of the Gift Guide. I'm sorry!! Please to flog me and burn me at the stake...I just can't do it. Forgive me?)

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!

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!

You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.

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...
