Random Things.

Finally. Snow.

It's gone now but it was good while it lasted.
And, a little snow day tradition around here...spiked hot chocolate!

Boozy Hot Chocolate
3 cups milk
3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Whisk all ingredients together over medium heat.
Give it a shot of your favorite liqueur and top it with a marshmallow.

When the warm air started to roll in, so did the fog.
I heart fog.
Especially out here in the woods.

I also knocked off this idea from a friend.

Laminated fabric under the high chair!
The fabric is Jenean Morrison and I think it's called Intermission.
I bought a yard and cut it in half.
Now I have a half yard to play with! 

Here we are taking the girls to the fabric store in town. 
Vivian is Iris's BFF, they are exactly one week apart and her Mommy's name is Jamie too.

How cute are they?

Love them! 

Well, now would probably be a good time tell you that Nugget and I are going to Florida to visit my Mom.
Grandma Beth.

We've got to escape this wintry hell!
 That's a joke, of course. If you're not from around these parts we've had a mild winter to say the least.
We had one other freak snow storm this year... in October... when this happened.

I'm a little nervous about it. This will be Iris's first time flying the friendly skies and we're going it alone.
I'll let you know how it goes.

  Now we are packing.

How we are going to survive without Daddy is beyond me.
I'm hoping all the newness will be a distraction for nuggie but I know early in the morning and just before bed she'll be missing her Daddy... and so will I.

I plan on bringing my laptop and posting a bit while in Florida so check in with us once in a while.

When I return I'll be revisiting the To Do List. 
Last year's and this year's.
Brace yourselves.


  1. I don't even have a babe to worry about and I still get beyond nervous to travel or go anywhere without Mr. Husband- but I think you'll surprise yourself by maintaining a calm vibe.
    Loved this post. So much goodness to soak up! For starters, I'm a fog lover too, and who doesn't love spiked hot coco? Pure love in a cup!

    I'm really intrigued by the fabric idea. Lots of possibilities with that one.

    enjoy the sunshine on your trip!

    1. Thank you for such a lovely comment. All went well travel wise. Hopefully the same for the trip back home. Don't know if you noticed your badge in the sidebar but I am seriously considering doing it. I'll get back to you on that.
