Happy 1st Day of Spring!

It’s spring y’all! I am excited to say the least. Even though that doesn’t mean an automatic weather change seeing that the high here tomorrow is 39. Fortunately I am flying south on Friday for 5 glorious days of vacation! My husband is kind enough to allow me to go off and vacation while he holds down the fort at home.

So I just realized I have pictures on my camera from a few weeks ago when we went to Ohio for my mom’s birthday. She took a great family picture for us with Dolly. Dolly’s eyes come off a little crazy in the picture but it is a good picture so I had to share!

So this is a short post. Tune in tomorrow for Wedding Thursday for another fun idea from our wedding!

Who likes Winter?

I mean this as a question, not a sarcastic statement. Well maybe a little of both. I am not the biggest fan of winter and I am looking forward to green grass and warm weather! But in an effort to be positive there are some good things about winter. 

1. Christmas. I love the Christmas season
2. Hot Chocolate. I will have to post the recipe for the homemade mix. Delicious. 
3. Fires in the fireplace. This one would be especially nice if we had a fireplace. But for now we just have to enjoy them when we visit family. 
4. Snow. This one is a good/bad thing. I love a good snow if I am able to spend the day home, on the couch under a blanket with a fire and some hot chocolate. Combining all of my favorite things about winter. However when it snows and I have to drive to work that is not this southern girls thing. Living up north is a different experience. And I am not claiming Northern Virginia as the north because I have friends in Boston and North Dakota and brr I don’t know how they do it. But for a girl from the south this is winter! So when it snows an inch I’m like why isn’t everything shutting down? Because that’s what a little snow does to Atlanta. I am glad it’s been a mild winter and I am ready for Spring! Who is with me? 

Due to the cold temperatures we have not been very much fun lately. I spent this past weekend sick. Not fun. But we did enjoy the Super Bowl on Sunday night, Go Ravens! Now it’s just back to the grind of working for the weekend. 

Hope everyone is good! I will be posting my new favorite winter comfort food recipe later! It is delicious and so easy!
