Snow . . . Again

We got snow . . . AGAIN!! Probably 12 inches. We didn't even bother to measure this time. I was upstairs painting and glanced outside the window and saw this . . . it reminded me of a bunch of little ants. I love our new neighborhood. The hubbys get together and help each other shovel the driveways. They had just done ours and were working on the house across the street. That's my little hubby of ant in the blue jacket/orange shovel.

I'm ready for the snow to melt and for temps in the 80s!!

I went to Jessica's high school orientation tonight. When did this happen? When did my baby grow up?? I honestly can't believe she'll be a freshman next year!! I'm sad for me and gosh so excited for her and all the opportunities and adventures that lie ahead for her. Now I need a drink.

Do you have that friend that you may not talk to in awhile, but you pick up right where you left off when you get together?! That's me and Julie. We have been friends since elementary school!! More than 30 years of friendship - yikes!! Our daughters are both 13 and it was cool to see that even though we don't live near one another and see each other often, our girls are very similar and even own some of the same things!

Vacation Recommendations

Since it is freakin' cold outside, my thoughts have turned to summer and the beach! I'm one of those that has to have something in the works and something to be looking forward to. Does anyone have recommendations for nice and affordable places to stay at the beach? We're thinking Outer Banks, but are open to other places too. Who knows, maybe there is a place we've never heard of that would be perfect!!

Also, we had thought about going to Disney this summer but now are thinking maybe December - anyone been to Disney that time of the year? How is it?

Any ideas and recommendations are greatly appreciated!

Real Housewives of OC

Did you see last night's show?? I was surprised and sad to see this story today. Tamara can be a real bitch at times, but Simon is one controlling husband and he'll never admit it. More drama to follow I'm sure!
