Hunkering Down...


Word on the street is that a big ol' snowstorm is heading our way. I've had to switch my brain from "looking forward to spring" back to "there's still a big long stretch of winter in front of us". This winter has been so unseasonably mild, it had me dreaming of flip flops and shorts long before I should have been!

Truth be told...I love snow storms. Now, we don't get the kind of ice/snow that takes out power for days *knock on wood*, so I am fairly "naive" in saying "I love snow storms". But I do. I love the fresh blanket of white that muffles all transient sound around.

When I was in high school, my mom and I used to go walking when it was snowy out. I loved those walks...just talking, our voices seeming so loud against the quiet of the falling snow. I think maybe I'll take my kids for a walk if we really do get some big snow.

Could be somewhere in the 12 inch range! Doubt that'll happen tho, know why?

I made a run to Sam's Club yesterday in preparation for the big storm (and, okay, so we needed food anyway, also)...now that I'm prepared? Betcha anything we'll get a dusting. ;)

I'll keep you posted...maybe I'll do an hourly photo post of snow accumulation throughout the day?

Stay tuned!!

  1. Im a bit jealous we have had NO SNOW here in Nashville this year! We have been in the upper 60s for the last few days so I am thinking our chance of snow is pretty much shot! Good Luck with the impending storm!!

  2. We're getting the storm after you, but instead of snow forecasts, we're getting ICE forecasts. GRRRRR. I'd rather have snow.

  3. Um, can ya send some down here? NC has had crazy weather. It's been in the 60's/70's for a lot of the "winter." So ready for a real winter... ice and all since that's all we seem to get :-D

  4. We've got a storm coming, with little to no accumulation. It seems like a huge waste of a storm. If it's gonna be iffy to drive, I want accumulation.

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 day...my 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 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!

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...
