I'm Ready.

I've come to a conclusion...I can't possibly live anywhere other than MinneSOOOOOta. Here I am, absolutely, positively DYING for snow.

Like, DY-ING. It is cold as heck out (well, not really, 'cuz as a true Minnesotan, I know it's gonna get a heckuva lot colder) and you know, if it's gonna be cold as heck, we might as well have some snow to make everything prettier.

That first "real" snow fall is so magical. Quiet and sparkly and stunning. I can't wait...not to mention the snow days that sometimes come along with the snowfall. An extra day with my kiddos? HECK YES!

The funny thing is, check back here sometime around April 1st or so, and you'll be hearing an entirely different tone from'll be more along the lines of "I am SOOOOOO ready for this snow to be gone!".

Guess you just can't please us Minnesotans!! :)

This time last year (November 23rd, to be exact):

C'mon Mother Nature...BRING IT!


  1. Lucky you to know you will have a first snow! For us, we get snow maybe… once every… couple of years.. make that every few years… ok, let's be honest, it happens so rarely in New Orleans that the ENTIRE CITY SHUTS DOWN! (Yes, even for a few flurries!) Employees leave the building and start building snowmen (they are the size of about ohhhh 3 inches, but whatever, it's a snowman!)… people forget how to drive on the streets, schools close for the day. Lol

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.
