Five Question Friday!! 11/25/11

Well? How was it for you? ;)

My Thanksgiving (waaaaiiiiit...just what did YOU think I meant?!) was wonderful. Good food, great conversation, a little competitive gaming (Taboo, anyone?) could it be bad?

Santa comes to town tonight! Our town's annual "Santa Parade" is this evening, and the kids are PUMPED! The Christmas season is in full swing, now...there's no denying it or resisting it anymore!

We have another Thanksgiving celebration tomorrow...more fun, more food, more wonderful people.

And then? A year-long nap please. *yawn*

Okay, onto the task at hand!

5. When will you put up your Christmas tree?


1. Is there a special dish you prepare that you are famous for?

Well, yeah, kinda. I mean...if you can call it a "dish". brothers demand that I bring my taco salad dip. Legend is that I make it best (I think that's code for, "I really like it but don't want to have to make it."), so I bring it to every family gathering.

I have also, however, started bringing (courtesy of a sister-in-law) Buffalo Chicken Dip...which is now a huge, dare I say "huger" (I know, I know...not a word), hit than the taco salad dip.

So, now I bring both.

I know...I'm known for my dips.

2. Are you (did you) go Black Friday shopping ?

Did not, have, would potentially given the right company.

Was planning on doing a bit of on-line Black Friday shopping, but my eyes are tired and my body is yelling at me to SLEEP!!!! So, I think I've gotta listen to them.

Besides, the deals will be there tomorrow. There's nothing that I can't live without
, so I'll sleep well tonight and fire up the ol' computer in the morning.

3. What are your strangest holiday traditions?

Trick question. No fair.

'Cuz if a person celebrates them, they probably don't think they're weird. No?

Seriously tho...I don't think I can think of anything off the top of my head...maybe I'll come back to this one if I think of something!

4. Pecan or pumpkin pie? (She actually asked "Apple or pumpkin?" I just T-giving'ed it!)

Pecan. Most definitely.

Although, my mom makes a "luscious" pumpkin dessert that we have on Thanksgiving that is...well, de-LUSCIOUS!

5. When will you put up your Christmas tree?

Sunday, baby! Long standing tradition.

We go to a tree farm and cut our Christmas tree down the Sunday after Thanksgiving. So, Sunday it is!


Sorry my answers are so boring...I'm feeling a little punk and don't have much of a sense of humor right now! Blah. Have a great weekend though!


  1. I loved your answers. They didn't seem boring to me! I would love to get that Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe. It sounds yummy! I will not be "out" shopping today either. It is just me, the cat and the computer! I hope you have a restful weekend.

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

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