It’s starting to stick!!


and NO, I’m not talking about the snow. Although it is sticking.


Might I add, it’s also the first snow I’ve got to enjoy this winter, the first snow I didn’t have to risk it all to get to work, and I’m loving it!


I’m crossing my fingers Nick’s grad school gets called off tomorrow. Though UK didn’t call off today, so I don’t have a lot of hope in the matter.

{and even though I do have to go to work tomorrow – it isn’t till 4… so I’m hoping the Nickster and I can build a snowman tomorrow, which I have done in years and which we’ve never done together. Wouldn’t it be nice…}




Don’t you love when the neighbor girl {I’m guessing she’s around 10 years old} trots through your yard with a gun while you’re taking pictures of the snow… I sure do.

{This is weird, right?}

and yes, I did blur her face to protect her identity… but I just had to show you one of the moments I actually caught on film of the weird family across the street.

{They carry this gun when they walk their German Shepherd. Who is never on a leash… because they said he respects the gun… SO weird.}



As for the “it’s starting to stick” – I’m not talking about the 6th coat of magnetic paint I’ve put on this wall in the basement either.



What IS starting to stick?




So glad the paint actually works!

Now one more coat of magnetic paint {because I want it reallyreallyreally strong} and two coats of “Burning Bush” red that I just had mixed at Lowe’s today, and IT’S DONE!!

{Well, the painting will be done… then we need to find a gas fireplace, have Nick’s dad hook it up, pick out all of our favorite pictures to print out to stick with magnets on the art wall AND find a huge mirror that I can make a tile mosaic around to place above the fireplace…. not too much left to do ;)}



Our Valentine’s Day was very sweet… my extremely intelligent and sweet hubby bought me beautiful potted calla lilies.

I have mixed feelings about cut flowers – especially with the V-Day mark-up – but these are GENIUS! He’s the best…

We went to see “Valentine’s Day” at the movies {pretty cute} and Nick made crab cakes for dinner.

In fact, he made enough that we had them again tonight!



Now off to sit by the fire and watch a movie with the hubs. ♥
