Snowmageddon 2011

Snowmageddon 2011WhiteoutWhite on white

So the blizzard came and went, leaving a mountain of snow in its wake. About 10 inches here, I think. I've been relying on ibuprofen to help with all the aches and pains from shoveling. And there's been lots of cooking, too. Last night it was Pioneer Woman's spicy pulled pork--fabulous! Tonight, chicken tortilla soup. I think I've earned the right to eat some hearty meals, given the calories I've surely burned working outside!

Aside from logging some work hours here at home, I've been Web surfing a little more than usual. I just discovered Pinterest (yes, I'm late to the party) and I'm hooked. It is such a smart way to discover new things, new people, and keep a visual bookmark of everything you love. If you haven't checked it out, I highly recommend it!

I have to remind myself that it's February now, which means I need to liven things up around here with some Valentine's Day decor. If you're looking for a quick project, check out Jackie's heart garland. Very clever! And if you need a creative jump-start, check out Jen's ideas for beating the winter blahs. Good stuff!

P.S. The weather forecasters came up with so many names for this week's blizzard...but my personal favorite (being a Kansas girl) is Cory's: Blizzard of Oz.

We've had lots of snow here and I'm tired of it but yesterday we got freezing rain and I think that was worse. I'll look for you on Pinterest!

Great links - thanks for sharing them. :) We also are still digging out of the snow.

Blizzard of Oz - that's perfect. A local radio personality used the made up term "blizzerated" and i think that's what we were! Off to add you to my pinterest!
