You guys...I have THREE WORK DAYS LEFT and then it's summer vacation, baby!!!!

I can't tell you how ecstatic I am to have the endless, lazy, fun, (hopefully) warm and sunny days of summer ahead of us. I foresee a lot of swimming and beaching it! With the remodel job tucked safely under our belts, this summer is free from demands!

Oh my gosh, speaking of how it's almost summer vacation, have you read this article about the end of school???

Laugh out loud funny...only because it is so shockingly SPOT. ON.

In fact, my daughter was reading to me in my office after school today and I was "mmmhmm'ing" and "uh huh'ing" my coworker called me and demanded, "WHY ARE YOU LETTING HER READ TO YOU?! IT'S THE END OF SCHOOL!!" Oh, yes...I forgot, we practice auditory reading at this time of the year. Ohmigosh, I laughed so hard!

Memorial Day weekend is upon us and we are headed to beautiful South Dakota! Wait...did I say beautiful? ;) We're headed there to join in the celebration of my bestie's mom and dad's anniversary because, as the invitation read, "they still do". :)

Well, I have a pile of laundry staring me down, just BEGGING me to fold it...I guess I should oblige.

Have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day your gratitude to those vets that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country and what we stand for. I am so grateful for them!!

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.
