A Little Late to the Game...

Alternately titled: "Happy Birthday to Mine Mama!!"

Yup, it was my mom's birthday today. I'm not sure that I've mentioned it before, but she's pretty awesome.

(So, that picture above? Something about it gives me the heebie jeebies...not the subject, but the coloring. The surroundings. Weird. And yet, I still post it. Weirder still.)

Come to think of it, I don't know anyone who doesn't think she's pretty awesome! She's hilarious, kind, fun to be around, a great grandma (not to be confused with "great-grandma", which she will NOT be for a long, long time!), a fabulous friend, and not someone you'd want to have a drinking contest with.

She'd kick your ass. ;)

We all (minus my big bro and his fam) got together for pizza at a local pizza joint and sat and chatted for 2 hours. Yes, it WAS bedtime when we left, but it was fabulous to spend the evening with them all.

Happy Birthday, mom...I pretty much think you're the best thing since sliced bread!


  1. That's so sweet!!! She sure doesn't look old enough to be a grandma though!!! :)

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.
