Today makes 18 years since my mom passed away. Sometimes it seems like forever and others it seems like it was just yesterday. It's hard for me to remember her voice any more. She has missed so very much. I had a dream about her the other night and I woke up and it seemed like she was real for a minute. And then reality set in and I realized it was just that....a dream. I would give anything to be able to have one more conversation with her, one more shopping trip, one more hug...........
SNOW!!! Glorious SNOW!!I I love when it snows. I love being snowed in and not getting dressed or leaving the house. Call me crazy (I know who you are, Northerners) but I do! But only for a day or two. Don't give me weeks and weeks and feet and feet! I love our little Georgia snowfalls. Just enough to satisfy my craving.
Well, they are predicting an ice/snow storm starting tomorrow. If you know anything about winter in the south....when they mention the "S" word EVERYONE runs.....and I mean everyone to the nearest store to get bread and milk (and probably enough groceries to last a month). It's just what we do. Usually nothing happens. maybe a few flurries so we shall see if that is the case this time. This was the bread aisle at Kroger. Thank goodness I was already stocked up but just needed to grab one thing (and see all the hype of crazy people running around everywhere).

Yay! This won't be too exciting for most people but it its for us. The new road is FINALLY open! And Addi insisted that we drive down it even though we weren't going that way! They have been working on this road for seriously FOREVER!!It is going to save us a lot of time!

Drew was at a friends house and his mom had made homemade Chex mix (I thought, hmmmmm, Betty Crocker much???) Drew loved it and asked me to ask her for the recipe. So I decided to make it tonight for Superbowl Sunday. Well, I take back the Betty Crocker comment. This stuff is DELISH!! Drew and I were fighting over it til the end! YUMMY!!
I always put this little mailbox out on the first of February for Addi. Every morning when she wakes up there is a little prize from Cupid in there. I lucked up last year and bought tons of junk on deep clearance so we are all set for this year. Now if we can just remember to do it each night. I am having flashbacks of that %&#$% elf.
You will probably see lots of food pics from me in the coming months. I'm trying really hard to stick to my New Year's resolution of meal planning and cooking at home. So far I am doing pretty darn good! But I have been scouring , you guessed it...Pinterest for some yummy recipes. This was a crescent chicken bake and i was soooo yummy!
I was cleaning out my desk and found these little tubes with confetti in them. I told Addi that we would take them outside later to play with them. Well, Drew came down and spotted them and "accidentally" set one off. I told them to just go for it and we would vacuum it all up. They had the best time with this mess.
