Such is life...

I've been wanting to get a new photography faux floor...if you take any photos, you HAVE to check them out. Fabulous.


Anyway, remember when I won an "honorable mention prize" for my crazy 7th grade hair in one of The Pioneer Woman's photo contests? Well, that gift certificate to B&H Photo that I won has been burning a hole in my pocket. Or my cupboard. Or, well, you know what I mean.


(Truth be told, it had sufficiently burned a hole when I first bought a battery grip for my camera that ended up making my camera malfunction so I returned it and now I have a credit to B&H that is burning a hole in my computer and holes being burned into computers is a very, very bad thing. Longest. Run-on. Sentence. Ever.)



A few months ago, I had my eye on a PepperLu faux floor at B&H, but even with my credit, it was still close to $100 and the thing that really killed me was the shipping. It was over 20 bucks! Gah. Seriously? I think you could ship a small child for less than that.




(See? Isn't it beautiful...)


So, I put it to rest for a bit. I'd peek back in every once in a while just to check on that fabulous faux floor of mine and see if, maybe, the good luck gods were smiling on me and that it was half price with free shipping and small child thrown in as an added bonus.


Never happened.


Last night I finally decided to just do it. My mind was made up. No one and nothing ANYWHERE, ANYHOW was gonna stop me. I logged on, tapped in my search, scrolled down to that sweet little floor and...


And...


AND???????


DISCONTINUED?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?


But...but...but...NO!


Ugh. Grrrrr. RAWR!!! 


Sigh.


Really?


Reload.


Yup. Really.


Reload again.


Uh huh. Still discontinued.


Reload one more time for good measure.



Yes, mama. Still discontinued.


Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! *sob* *sniffle* *pout*


Stupid floor.


Who wants a fake floor anyway?


*tear*

  1. That's my luck too! Sorry you waited too long. Maybe you will find something better. Good luck.

  2. Arrghh! I hate it when that happens! My entire color, not just the design, but everything in the base beige color, of my dishes were discontinued. I can still find them hit and miss, but they're much more expensive now. Maybe you can find somewhere that has the flooring on closeout? Just a hopeful thought.

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!

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...
