It all Came Together.

Alternately Titled: Proof of How Tired I Was.

When Christmastime rolls around (gah, two posts in a row about Christmas. Can you tell who's missing Christmas?) I begin my "Christmas outfit" planning in earnest, always trying to find some cute, coordinating things for us to wear.

This year, my plan was plum and gray and I set about to find JUST the right things. I bought and returned and searched and scoured and pieced and pulled and FINALLY. I got it just right.


Remember when I told you how sleep deprived I was before Christmas, you know with the whole "finishing the bathroom" combined with "last minute Christmas prep"? Yes. Proof. Above. My eyes...they don't sparkle. I was plum (hehe, get it?!) tuckered out. And, that is me with a full face of makeup on.



  1. Your family is just so lovely! I didn't comment the other day, but I looked thru Baby's Christmas photo shoot (and HER baby!), and I can't help it---she just looks like a little angel. So, so precious---BOTH of your girls are just LOVELY! And such handsome little men you have!
    Just a lovely family. ♥

  2. NOT ew! You look beautiful. Love your hair. And I LOVE this picture. GREAT coordinating outfits, and such a beautiful family. :)

  3. What a beautiful photo and you all look gorgeous!

  4. What a gorgeous family photo! I think the subjects may have had something to do with it!

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...
