Thursday Night 5QF Sneak Peek!

"I know it's late...I know you're weary...I know your plans, don't include me..."

That has nothing to do with anything other than the first thought I had when I started this post was "I know it's late" and suddenly, my mind is playing Bob Seger love ballads from the 80's. Forgive me for what I do.

I am beyond exhausted. Left home yesterday evening, had an enjoyable dinner with friends, stayed up way too late chatting with my co-worker, woke early, spent the day learning very interesting, very important things pertinent to my line of work, hit rush hour, drove straight to hubby's customer appreciation party, ate, mingled, collected kids, fixed the dishwasher, loaded the dishwasher, turned on the dishwasher, discovered my bed had been peed in last night by my youngest child and the mess only partially cleaned up, realized that I have to go to the laundromat AGAIN in less than 2 weeks time to wash the comforter, had a small, not at all satisfying pity party, and am now waiting for my sheets to dry.

I need a hug.

And a massage.

A little retail therapy, perhaps?


Anyway, you didn't come here to listen to me sing love songs to you or to hear my drivel about poor little ol' me, so let's get to the sneak peek!

Welcome to Five Question Friday!! You've come to the right place if you want a fun, easy post or if you've suddenly discovered your muses have gone all Eeyore on you and are entirely self absorbed with their own pity parties.

Coming soon...

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!

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 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, 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...
