So easy, even a cavewoman can do it.

Remember those creepy-scary GEICO commercials with the cavemen? I don't really watch television anymore, so I'm out of the loop and have no idea if they even run them anymore.

This is what I am referring to here.

The stuff nightmares are made of.

Even though the commercials give me the willies, I can appreciate the tagline: "So easy, even a caveman can do it." I sometimes quote it when I've done something easy, like make this:

Truly, it was easy-peasy. Even a little annoying, if I'm being honest. I mean, how hard is it to wind yarn around a wreath a million times? Not hard. But definitely repetitive.

Tutorial: HERE. Make your own. And if you are smart (read: cheap) like me, you'll buy a shrink-wrapped straw wreath instead of a foam wreath. Straw is about 1/3 the price of foam. Why? Life's big questions ...

As for the bread contest, it's officially closed. I got seven or eight recipes, so I'm going to be busy over the next few weeks. I've decided to make two of them each week until I'm done. I've made one already, and it was a hit! At this rate, I think I'll be done by Smush's first birthday. And if I'm not, maybe I'll make the last one as a Birthday Loaf and stick a candle in it.

Also, if you're wondering about the progress of my hair, well, here it is today:

Bubs makes an appearance!

I've gotten to the flippy-out stage. Don't know how I feel about it yet. My cute neighbor told me it reminded her of Meg Ryan, which I'll take as a compliment.

I was thinking Sue Sylvester.

Heaven help me ...


  1. i think it's more meg ryan :)

    i love the wreath! i've seen tutorials like that before but have never tried one myself. it turned out so great. love the colors.

  2. What a cute wreath! I love the colors you used. Your hair is still looking cute too, definitely Meg Ryan. It seems to be growing fast!

  3. You're totally rockin' the flip out hair! I tried to do that to my hair once when it was that length. My not-always-tactful hubby asked me if I did it on purpose...

  4. cute wreath, cute hair.... totally not Sue Sylvester by the way:)

    Oh, and I have to say that I LOVE the geico caveman commercials. The older ones anyway, they used to be so funny!

  5. Your hair is adorable! I'm in an in-between stage and I'm hating it! Yours looks awesome!


I like feedback almost as much as I like food.
