Snow, Moving, a SALE and Five for Fraturday

Never too late for the party, I'm linking up to Five for Friday!

Okay, maybe y'all have heard. I think it's made the national news...snow came to the South. My daughters and I have bee out of school for a WEEK (that never, ever happens here) and they're bored to tears. I can't imagine what my little school munchkins are doing other than reading, practicing addition and subtraction, and writing in their journals every single day going stir crazy just like my own girls! Honestly, even though the roads are not only clear, but also dry, I have thanked God every day for this snow, because we moved yesterday, and on Tuesday, I hadn't packed a single thing! Oh my! The good Lord certainly looks out for us, and in beautiful ways - it really has been beautiful. It started with this:
I saw this rainbow as I was leaving work on Monday.
This was Tuesday morning (at the old house).

I left my (sleeping) husband this message, and we went
outside to play.

My beautiful girls stopped for a picture in front of the creek
that runs through our (old) neighborhood.

Back to reality...we packed and packed and packed, while the girls played outside, sledded in the yard, made the world's tiniest snowman, and loved every minute. We did finally all get outside together for a snowball fight (I used a sled to load up and throw snow at everyone else) and some sledding!

For our romantic Valentine's Day, we moved. From 7 a.m. until midnight. UGH! And this is what today looks like. YIKES!

The good news is, Megan Favre is working hard on my new blog design! I'm super excited and can. not. wait! to show it off! I think I'll celebrate with a sale...oh, what the heck, let's start it now - all snowy things in my TPT shop (and maybe a few surprises) are 20% off now through Sunday! Hurry - you have to snatch them up before I'm through unpacking!

While taking a break, I helped my mom with her bookshelves in her den. I made this cute little picture using scrabble tiles, turned over except for their last name. They fit perfectly in a frame and looked so cute in front of a vintage gameboard vignette we set up.

  1. Looks like you have made the best of the snow! I can't wait to see your new blog design - I am having Megan design mine too and I can't wait (although I'm not scheduled until April).

    1. Oh, Kelly, she's so worth the wait! Megan is amazing, patient, and soooo talented! I just sent her my choice for the new design (she sent about 7 the choose from). I'm excited for you, too!


I love to hear from you! Send me your comments, but be sure you're not a "no reply" sender, so I can write you back!
