Feeling Blessed...

Perma-smile. On my face. Today was magnificent.


From the weather to the company to the festivities...poifect.

Was greeted by my hubs with coffee and a card that had a certificate for a massage!!! A MASSAGE! Guys, he DOES listen! He redeemed himself from the chocolate covered strawberries and Pepsi/beef jerky gifts of late.

I have sun-kissed shoulders, grimy, tired kids, and a full heart.

Today was so beautiful, that the "cousins" decided to take a dip in the river...which might not seem at all strange to anyone who lives anywhere but Minnesota, but dudes. The river? The mighty Mississippi? Normally at this time of the year, a dip in the river would be considered crazy.


Because normally the river is breathtakingly chilly. Literally BREATHTAKING. But today? Still a bit cold, but tolerable! The kids jumped in several times before deciding that they were too cold to do it anymore!

And now...I rest. After the full, fabulous weekend that we had...I'm pooped! 

G'night my friends!


  1. Sounds like you had a day much like mine! It must have been nice out everywhere, because down here in Wisco. it was like God himself ordained a beautiful day for mothers! Glad to hear you had a wonderfully fufilling day.

  2. Sounds like a great day, happy belated Mother's Day!

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!

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.
