Real Time...

Currently in my household...

I am lying beside a baby who is playing with my iPhone. Somehow, we've gotten into some very bad sleep habits with her. Sigh. Like everything else in life, she's proven to be SO different from our other kids!

The "other kids" are peacefully sleeping in their respective beds...well, actually, I think Hambone chose to sleep with Belle tonight. Belle, who is patiently awaiting the arrival of the (she knows) "toothfairy". Again, sigh. #parentfail

Did I just use a hashtag in a blog post? Ugh.

I keep loving glancing at my "new" camera. Okay, so it's not new. In fact, it's almost one, but I just received a new battery grip for it and it looks all grown up and "new"! See?

That piece I'm holding onto at the bottom is the grip. I haven't really decided if I prefer it's "functionality" yet, but the feel and the look? Love it...even if it is a bit heavier!

Totally enjoying a text conversation I'm having with my best friend, Dr. J. Laughing. A lot. (Sorry, J.!!)

Looking forward to having lunch tomorrow with a great friend. Gonna have a little tag-a-long in the form of Baby Girl, but that's alright.

I need to figure out how one goes about getting a membership or account or privileges or whatever it's called at a professional lab. Mpix? That's one, right? And something else...Whitesomethingorother? Anyway...

Okay...time for bed! Remember...tomorrow is the 5QF sneak peek, so offer up some questions for me! Please?


  1. Very interesting description made about. Lovely post.


  2. I've never seen a battery grip before. Actually, never heard of one before. Is it just utilized to help you hold the camera, or are their other useful purposes that I need to know about, because if so, I gotta have it! :)

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!

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.
