The 4th Annual "Mr. Wonderfulest Contest"!

From the inception of this blog...when it was just a wee couple of months old, I have hosted an annual "Mr. Wonderfulest Contest" and I am letting you know that this year is no exception!

I KNOW we all have some pretty terrific Father's in our lives, whether that Father is our husband or our own dad or a brother or an uncle, or heck, even a neighbor you look up to, and they all deserve to be celebrated!

I also know that many of us write "tributes" to the Father's in our lives in honor of Father's Day, and that is where this contest comes into play! 

Edited to add: All you need to do is write a post, like you normally do, for a special Father in your life, whether it be single word bullet points, a paragraph or two, or a novel-length post, and link it up when the linky opens! Then, call on all of your friends, family, neighbors, brother's girlfriend's aunt's cousin's daughter, whomever it takes to start voting for you! (There will be a "Like" option next to your post title in the linky list.)

Your "Mr. Wonderful" can be here on earth with us, or in Heaven! Either qualify!

Beginning on Friday evening, I will "open" the official "Mr. Wonderfulest 2012" post, which will have a linky submission link in it where you can link your post. If you've never linked a post before and have questions, please don't hesitate to contact me! I'm happy to help you!

Like last year, this year's contest will be based upon a "voting" criteria (with final judgement by me...i.e. if you write a post about your cat and get all your cat loving community friends to vote for you and wind up with the most votes, I'll nix it in favor of the second most vote earning post about a father. Not a cat.).

Voting will last all week, with the contest closing on June 24th at 10 pm (Central Time). The winner will receive a $100 Visa Gift card sponsored by...ME! 

Now...any ideas for a "badge" for this contest? I'd say it's high time we get one... ;)

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!

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.
