Friday Favorites:Snowy Day

Friday, January 22, 2016

IT'S SNOWING!!... well, it's supposed to snow. It's wintry outside. I am praying for just one good, fluffy snow so that the kids, Justin, and I can get outside and play! Ty has been carrying his snow boots around everywhere and saw a thin layer of snow on the housetops this morning and got very excited. Poor thing needs some real snow! Some sledding type snow!
On to my favorites this week!

SNOWMAN CRAFTING!

Ty has been loving some painting since we've been staying inside due to the cold weather. We've done two snowman crafts this week: a snow globe snowman, and a marshmallow stamp snowman. He just loved using a marshmallow to paint the body of the snowman, mostly because when he was finished, he got to eat one (without the paint on it, of course!)

AMERICAN IDOL: THE FINAL SEASON

I have not been an avid AI follower. I've watched most seasons, in and out (two times a week is a commitment!) But since this is the final season I decided I wanted to tune in. I have loved watching these last auditions over the past two weeks. I also love all the throwbacks to old seasons. Is anyone else watching?!

TY'S FIRST SNOW THROWBACK

Since this is Elena's first snow (or will hopefully be, if the weatherman is correct) I have been reminicing about Ty's first snow. We loved watching him experience it for the first time. We had him sit in a laundry basket with a rope tied to it and pushed him down the slope in our cul de sac.  He loved it and I am sure Elena will be even more stoked about it... she's our little dare devil!

 BUY TWO GET THREE FREE AT HT!

When Harris Teeter does their buy two, get three free sale I go bonkers! My favorites are the cheese. I never ever buy cheese unless I am getting most of it for free! This go around, I stocked up on canned green beans because Elena LOVES them, cheese (of course!), and HT Trader pints of ice cream! YUM! I've also stocked up on pasta sauce in the past! If you have a HT near you, you have to take advantage of their B2G3 sale!

BEN AND JERRY'S HALF BAKED

Is it just me or is a pint of Ben and Jerry's a special treat? I rarely get Ben and Jerry's but the pending snow day seemed like a good enough reason for Justin to get one for us! It's been forever since I last had Half Baked and when I had a bowl this week I remember why I love it so much! Who doesn't love chunks of cookie dough and brownie in their ice cream? I really need to get my new year under control! Good thing this only comes pint-sized!
