Mother's Day Blessings

My life's greatest blessings are the 5 miracles that've been placed in my charge and the amazing man at my side to help me parent them.

I know every mom says it, but when I look at my kids, I am absolutely awestruck that they are mine. And my heart is totally and completely filled with love. I am so honored to be the mama to 5 such amazing children. Sometimes I look at them and wonder, "What did I do to deserve them?!", God has blessed me in ways I never thought possible.

Today was perfect. Woke up to coffee (just the way I like it) from the Mr., gifts and cards and hugs and "Happy Mother's Day!!" from my babies. Spent the whole day with the ones I love most at my side.

As we get ready for (a late) bedtime, I am, once again, struck by the wonder and beauty of the blessing of being a mom. My big brother once told me I was "born to be a mom" and honestly, you couldn't give me a better compliment. Motherhood is my passion. My joy. My pride. My life.

And so, I bid you goodnight...full of s'mores, good food, greater memories, and lot's of love.

Happy Mother's Day to you all!

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!

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 braiding...watch 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

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 first...you know...so 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, well...is 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...
