1. What is your next home improvement goal?

2. If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be? No religious texts (ie Bible, Quran, Torah, etc, etc)...

3. What is on top of your refrigerator?

4. What are your favorite or most used phone apps?

5. What's the one thing you hate most about your spouses job?


1. What is your next home improvement goal?
Our kitchen/dining/living room/mudroom...aka "nearly our entire main level". Ugh...see what I mean when i say we should just plow 'er under and start fresh?

Except now I have this gorgeous bathroom and this amazing bedroom and yeah. Not gonna plow it under.

I have dreams for our kitchen. Dreams that will make it less 1970something and more modern with a better work flow. Sigh. I wish I was rich.

2. If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be? No religious texts (ie Bible, Quran, Torah, etc, etc)...

Yikes. This is a hard one.

Hmmmm...I think I'd get tired of reading the same novel over and, I dunno, maybe "Eat This Not That"? Or some sort of self help book?

Or...can I choose a series? Like, Harry Potter? 'Cuz I could totally swing that for the rest of my life.

3. What is on top of your refrigerator?


A whole lot of dust and a couple of stray papers.

At our old house, we had VERY limited storage/cupboard space and the top of the fridge became a storage space. Paper towels, paper plates, large bowls...UGLY. It was one of the things I hated most about that house and I vowed to never let crap pile up on top of my fridge ever again.

I've stayed true to that...except for the dust.

Oh, my. The dust...

4. What are your favorite or most used phone apps?

Ooooh, lemme look and tell you...I love hearing what people's most favorite apps are!!

Okay, here are my "most used" apps: Facebook (duh), Pinterest, TweetCaster, Pandora, The Weather Channel, CANDY CRUSH!!!!!, Instagram, and Google Search.

My "most favorite" include the above and these lesser used ones: (love dreaming about uber spendy houses in far off places), Groupon, zuilily, Craigslist, SnapChat, The Monster at the End of This Book.

I also like Google Earth, Living Earth, Caring Bridge, Food Network, Target.

Gosh. I think I'm naming every app I have. I'd better stop.

5. What's the one thing you hate most about your spouses job?

That his busiest times of the year are Spring and Fall...which are Minnesota's most gorgeous times of the year. Normally. This year? Not so much. Spring hasn't even arrived yet...unless you could those two days last weekend.

He works with farmers and it makes it hard to get away or do many family activities during the summer. :(

But, I also love that he is self employed and has more flexibility with being his own boss. Makes some things in life a bit easier (getting paid early, dealing with sick kids, etc.).



  1. I totally forgot to list Pinterest as one of my favorite apps - I use it ALL the time. Happy Friday to you. I'm linking up for the first time.

  2. yay!!! you used my question...wooohooo :) yay for the bedroom just about being done...

    Yeah, that is tough about his job...but great benefits.

    I forgot about pinterest, but I don't use it every day.

    I lost the battle for the space above the fride, but I guess it works now.

  3. Harry Potter. AGREED. I read that series over again every few months.

  4. You should be a part of a contest for one of the most useful blogs on the web.
    I am going to highly recommend this website!

    Also visit my homepage: Sito Ufficiale Gucci Borse

  5. This design is incredible! You obviously know how
    to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
    almost...HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to
    say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

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

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... (Lemme just inte
