Welcome friends, to the 4th Annual Mr. Wonderfulest Contest!

A contest that celebrates all the wonderful father's in our lives. Whether that wonderful man is your father, your husband, or just a really super dude in your life, he's eligible...even if he's still not here on earth with us.

I want to celebrate ALL dads...past and present...for their hard work and awesomeness!

Here are the "rules":

1. Enter your "Mr. Wonderfulest" by linking up a blog post you've written about him, via the linky list below.
2. If you don't have a blog, but still want to enter your "Mr. Wonderful", please feel free to enter him by writing your "nomination" in the comments below.
3. After you've linked your post (if you need help with this, feel free to contact me, I'm happy to help!), call on friends and family and random strangers to "Like" your link below! (If you're submitting via a comment, get "votes" by having your friend/family/random strangers leave a "Reply" to your comment stating "Like!" and that'll count as your vote!)
4. Next Sunday, June 24th, I will close the voting and comments at 10 pm CST and determine whom has the most votes...if that post isn't a weird post about your cat (Father's here, people), then your Mr. Wonderful will be crowned the 2012 "Mr. Wonderfulest"!
5. The winner will score a $100 Visa gift card, sponsored by no one else but little ol' me!

Looking forward to meeting your "Mr. Wonderful's..."

May the best, "Mr. Wonderful" win!


  1. I tried to like Mr Wonderful at Love & Bugs but all that happened was the page refreshed. The like counter didn't go up. :(


    1. I have an email in to the Linky Tools guy to check on this...I was able to get the "like" feature to work on my end (yes, I will like them all...except I don't know who linked the contest wasn't me!!). I'll let you know what I hear!

  2. I have a few friends who are saying they are unable to "like" my post too. :(

  3. Just an FYI, I'm waiting to hear from the Linky Tools peeps about the "Like" glitch...I also don't like that the page reloads when you click "Like"! I'll inquire about that, as well!

  4. I linked up my blog above, (My Real Life) but wanted to write that the post I linked above was just one of the many I've posted about my Mr. Wonderful. My blog is about my amazing family, but it must be said again and again and again and again that I could not be a full-time working mama of 4 and still be so happy and centered and calm without my Real Man (as I call him). He is the backbone of the family and is my partner in life, in crime, in everything. He is truly Mr. Wonderful!

  5. I do not have a blog, so I will post my "Mr. Wonderfullest" here!

    Ten years ago, almost to the day, I married my best friend. He has been the answer to all my hopes and dreams, and I love him dearly!

    In those 10 years, he has become the daddy to seven children - six with us and one in heaven. He is absoutely awesome with them and they all mean the world to him!

    Like most good husbands and fathers, he takes his responsibility of providing for them very seriously, and with six kids to care for making ends worries him at times!

    Then, about four and a half months ago, a friend from church got a serious illness, and had to have an extended stay in a hospital two hours away and his wife needed to be with him a good chunk of the time. I knew in my heart we needed to take in their girls (ages 9, 7 and 3) so the oldest two could continue going to school. I told my Mr. Wonderful what I wanted to do, and he didn't hesitate. Sure, he was worried about how we were going to take care of them, but we both believed that God would provide, and he did!

    For the last four months, he has treated those girls as his own, and last week, when God called their Daddy home to heaven, he hugged them and cried, hurting for them as if they were his own. Then he turned to his own kids and made sure they knew how much he loved them. For the past four and a half months, he has made it a point for our kids to understand that those three girls were family and they needed us. Under his guidance, they rose to the occasion!

    My kids and I are so blessed to have a husband and daddy like him!

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.
