It's Aliiiiiiiive!!!

Since you asked so nicely (Wait...what's that? You didn't ask? Oh, well, suffer through it anyway...), I decided I'd show you photos of the garden that IS!

It IS growing! (Hard to see, but we added MUCH more top soil...and by "we" I mean, "not me". Mr. Wonderful to the rescue...again!)

It IS producing (well, it WILL be)!

It IS alive!

It IS, come hell or high water, going to be a success!!!

(PS...Yes, I WILL be posting the "Mr. Wonderfulest" winner soon! I wanted to be sure to read ALL of the posts first! Soon, very soon, I will post the winner!)


  1. LOL...Love the title and the garden is looking great! I live vicariously through garden posts as my thumb couldn't possibly be browner! :)

  2. What a cool way to garden! I have never heard of this but then again I was as new to gardening as you could get before this year. Now I am growing my own veggies too and it is (surprisingly) working out great, especially since the sun has come out the last few days. I'm looking forward to your updates on this!

  3. That is awesome! I've heard a lot about straw bale gardening in the past few years now. It looks intriguing! I think I will stick with my lovely garden but I may try straw bales with my mom or something. It might be just the thing for her to attempt!

    Thanks for sharing! Looking good!!!

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.
