Real Time...

Sitting here, wondering why I can't ever come up with the time to blog on Mondays anymore when I realized that it all boils down to fun.


Weekends so crammed full of stuff (work included) that by the time Sunday evening rolls around, I am so plum tuckered out that I fall into bed, full of fresh air, sunshine and happiness.


Except for those few times when I fell into bed in a bad mood...but you didn't want me around then, anyway, so for that, you're welcome!


Cooked with Gram today...made some incredible Chow Mein that my horribly picky 16 year old wouldn't even try. Not. One. Bite. And you say your 2 year old is difficult?! Ha. Okay. ;)


Up late. Just showered. Editing photos, needing to write a blog post, trying not to think of the cupboard/closet reorganization project that I started and didn't finish, and ignoring the laundry that is calling to me from the hallway in a super creepy, horror flick voice.


Chugged down a delicious "smoothie" that my dad invented that consists of Kefir, V8 Fusion and a shot of Ning Xia ("Ninja). I feel like I could conquer the world now. (I think that's the Ninja talking...)


Looking forward to an impromptu vacation that we are planning...not going anywhere far this year, the Mr. is going to do a little "trade" for his "services" (gah...that looks so bad when I put that in quotes...Magic Mike-ish or something...) and in turn we'll get a week at a lake cabin on a fabulous lake!


And that, is about all I have for now...looking at my camera sitting by me and feeling the itch to go out and shoot something. If only it weren't dark out.


See you in the am! Stay tuned for Chow Mein!

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 day...my 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 braiding...watch 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

You!
Yes, YOU!!
You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
Tonight.
Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post first...you know...so 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, well...is 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...
(Lemme just interject here...sorry for …
