Left today for my girls weekend. These are my friends that I meet the same weekend every year for the last 17 years. We are meeting in TX again this year.

Wendi using her GPS on her phone trying to figure out where the heck we are!

One of my best friends, April, and her daughter, Amber, drove up from San Angelo to spend the day with us. April and I have know each other for 20 years. We had so much fun!

Day 43 - Friday, February 12

Jason and his girlfriend, Lauren, made dinner for me tonight!
stuffed bell peppers.
Loved the food and especially loved the company!!

Day 42 - Thursday, February 11

I received my butter bell from Mike at Klaytivity!!!
and I love it!! the color is beautiful!

I first heard Rita at meemaw moments talk about her husband making these. they keep the butter at the perfect spreading temperature and then keep it fresh by a airtight water seal in the base. My trick will be remembering to change the water every 3 days!!

Day 40 - Tuesday, February 9

Ok, I must admit this is beautiful with the blue sky backdrop!

However, what you don't see is the thick layer of ice on the road due to it raining yesterday evening and then freezing over night. We ended up getting 7.5" of snow...a record. We normally average 5" for the entire winter.

Now I am hoping that sun will melt the ice a a bit (even though it is going to be below freezing all day) so that my husband and son can get to the airport for their trip! They are leaving for AZ for Jared's 16th birthday trip.

Day 39 - Monday, February 8

We woke up to an unpredicted and record breaking snow fall today.

So Jason decided to make us all waffles...
....please note how many bowls he has used!
But they were awesome AND he cleaned it all up!
LOVE it!

Day 38 - Sunday, February 7

I realized I hadn't take a foot shot in a while..ha! And since I have been challenged to not take a "food" picture for a week (thx Esthermay) , I can't show you all the great food I made for the super bowl party last night...your loss! So I got some of my friends to prop up their feet for a picture, because the best part of last night was spending time with my friends! And then the Saints won!!

The Dharma cake my friend made for her LOST party!!!

Day 32 - Monday, February 1

I wore this necklace today and got so many compliments. the cool thing about it is that I bought this when I was in 7th grade. I worked all summer making macrame plant holders to earn enough to buy it!

Day 31 - Sunday, January 31

Steve and I were invited to join one of our church's Life Groups for lunch after church. The weather is somewhat better, but it was obvious that the restaurant was short staffed. Our poor waitress was working her tail off!!
