Monkey See...

Monkey Do.

There is nothing better than plunging yourself into the depths of the Mississippi on a scorching hot Minnesota day.


And this is why I don't want summer to end. totally need to check this Rocket Club song out. Describes MinneSOOOOta/MinneSOOOOtans poifectly. LOVE it.


  1. I could use a cool dip in the Mississippi today - Lake Waconia (south west MN) by my house is a cool 75ish degrees now that it is almost August. It feels like bath water :)

  2. That sounds like so much fun! I live in an apartment, so we have a swimming pool. But there's nothing like jumping into a lake/river! :)

  3. How fun! I sat on a curbside of my hometown watching the children's parade while my shoulders got BAKED in the sun and my boys got all jacked up on tootsie rolls. Awesome.

  4. Looks like they're having a great time!

  5. I would love to jump into any form of water right now, this looks great

  6. Looks SO refreshing!!! And fun! :)

  7. Looks like awesome summer fun =)

  8. I love how you paralleled the pictures! Great shots!

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!
