Wait...could you hold please, whilst I flip the laundry?

Okay, sorry 'bout that...thanks for waiting.

Remember my sad, sorry little post about the video importing snafu that left my in-laws looking like oompah-loompahs? Well, thankfully there are people smarter than I in this world (I'm talking about YOU, Erin) who gave me a suggestion to try and it worked beautifully.

My in-laws are now back to their regular size and shape and...AND?! I have a total of 2 minutes of video edited! Yay! Only 13 more to go...

In other news, we have conferences for our two younger boys today and as I am writing that sentence, I realized that I forgot to email the two teachers of Pal's that I was unable to visit with at his conferences last week.

My brother and sister-in-law are going to welcome my nephew into this world ANY DAY. Well, technically, she's not due 'til Halloween, and I don't know about them, but I'M ready, and that's all that matters, right?


The bathroom project is coming along...we finally broke down and hired some help and that's been nice for two reasons...1. because we no longer have to find the time to do it ourselves and 2. because we no longer have to find the time to do it ourselves.

Anyway, I've gotta run now! Time to collect kids from school!

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

Yes, YOU!!
You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
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...)
