It's Not Goodbye.




It's just..."see you later, alligator".

My baby brother is moving. To California.


Hold me.

He's off on his next chapter in life...dentistry school. He's headed to San Francisco to figure out all it takes to be a dentist.

Let me lay out a few rules for you, Baby Bro:

Number 1: You must call, text, Facetime and/or Skype with us weekly. Or, okay, at the very minimum biweekly.

Number 2: You must not meet a California Girl. Remember "The Midwest Farmer's daughters really make you feel alright". If you meet a girl in California, she can hail from no farther away than Brainerd or Willmar, MN, otherwise she might use her womanly wiles to keep you in California. Got that?

Now that we're clear on that, moving on:

Number 3: You must never, ever, ever, never, ever miss a Christmas whilst you are learning all things dental.

Number 4: You must not fall in love with California weather and decide to stay there forever.

Number 5: See Number 2.

Number 6: See Number 4.

And, lucky Number 7: You must have fun.

I'll miss you bro. I'm beyond excited and thrilled for you and this adventure in your life and have no doubt that you will (in the words of Treehorn) "kill it". You've got this, J! Can't wait to watch you succeed!


  1. Don't worry....the weather in San Fran isn't that great. As in, better than MN but no where close to San Diego. Sorry, guess that wasn't much of a comfort to you! But good luck to your baby bro!! I'm sure he'll come home as fast as possible!

  2. Aww, Hugs, I know how it feels. My immediate family has always lived within walking distances of our homes.... then my brother moved across the state and I felt like I was in mourning for him, which is a weird thing, but you know what I mean, just missing him so much!

  3. Oh no, not to scare you but out of three friends/family who moved to cali only one ever came back...that weather and laid back "thang" brainwash people I swear! Hugs, I know you'll miss him, but good uncles always visit!!! :)

  4. He's off on his next chapter in life...dentistry school. He's headed to San Francisco to figure out all it takes to be a dentist.

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!

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
