snowmageddon = an epic fail

Last week we anticipated the arrival of snowmageddon. I stocked up on ingredients for crockpot recipes and kept our DVR full of shows. The snow began on Thursday around noon. I left the office at 2:00 to pick up Avery and head home, Greg followed around 3:30 and Kristin was already at the house. We were all home tucked away expecting to wake up to over a foot of snow. To our disappointment, we got a measly 6 inches...6 INCHES! What a joke. Lesson learned: don't trust the news. Clearly, when there isn't a lot going on around town, the lead story becomes weather-related. 

The one positive to the evening of the storm was a crockpot baked potato soup that my sister, Kristin made. It was easy, scrumptious and the perfect meal for a snowy day.

The remainder of the weekend looked a little like this: Old Chicago pizza + Grimm marathon with my hubby in bed, an afternoon trip to Home Depot to price out some wainscotting for the dining room/living, a last minute trip to Lincoln to see my family and dine at Fireworks {my favorite restaurant in Lincoln EVER} and last but not least, finding a new show on ABC that we are totally obsessed with: Zero Hour. 

Today we have another chance of snow. I am brushing it off, though, after this last letdown. Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

Excited about Avery's first pigtails!

Slightly obsessed with buying adorable jammies for Avery. These are my favorite to date!

  1. Yes. Fireworks IS the best restaurant EVER.
    and that's coming from someone who worked there for almost 2 years!
