Cruel Joke.

Five years ago (hard to believe I've been blogging that long...) Mother Nature played a nasty April Fool's joke on us (the good news is that 2 1/2 weeks later it was in the 70's...could that actually be in our future?! Also...that link is my 3rd post. Ever. 3. Whoa.). She dumped HEAPS of snow, forcing schools to declare a snow day. In April.

Not funny, Mother Nature, not funny.

Well, guess what, my friends?

We're under a Winter Weather Advisory. Again. For April Fool's Day.

Please hold me, I'm going to cry. (And it's gonna be ugly. Ain't no pretty cryin' over here.)

Currently our back yard looks like this:

(And yes, that is a path through the snow to the trampoline...raising tried and true Minnesotan kids over here.)

Let's see what it ends up looking like by 8 am tomorrow morning...

Sounds like the wind will be the bigger factor tomorrow, not a ton of snow, but rain, turning to ice, with snow on top and high winds. You're jealous, I can sense it.

Just in case you're not jealous enough, look what's in store for Friday:

Yay us.


  1. I feel your pain. We are supposed to get 6-12 inches of snow between Thursday night and Friday night. I have so had enough! We actually still have about 20-24 inches on snirt(snow plus dirt) on the ground yet.

  2. we do not have snow like you but I really want sunshine. the temps are even in the 40's but it is rainy or cold. UGG I just need sunshine

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!
