4th of July Fun!

I have a bunch of fun photos from our vacation to show you, but first...some 4th of July photos!

We had GORGEOUS weather...I spent the first part of the day at work, then sped home, grabbed the fam and headed to Dr. J's house for our annual Independence Day fun!

Girl knows how to throw a party!

The food.

The friends.

And this year...a DJ!!!

An audience for those of us brave enough to do a little boogieing.

 And sweet kids who want their mamas.

I think the 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays! (In other news, I'd like to trade in the area from my knees to my belly button for a more youthful, toned one. Thank you.)


  1. That pic of you and baby girl is too sweet! LOVE it! one ('cept the mister) sees the belly button....everyone sees knees in shorts and skirts. Be thankful.

  2. Love the DJ party - perfect picture that says "PARTY"

    And love that last picture - that's love :)

  3. Oh, I love the last photo! Precious. Looks like you definitely had a great 4th of July! :)

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... (Lemme just inte
