Winter blah blah's....part deux

Spring has most definitely not `sprung` where we live.  In fact these pics from last week pretty much tell the tale. The stores are filled with gorgeous spring clothes, shoes and bathing suits etc. and honestly I can't even wrap my mind around wearing them anytime soon. It all that seems a million miles away right now. As awesome as a foot of snow in April is, I'm really over it.  

The kids thought the massive snow fall was fantastic. I disagreed. 


Since bikini season is still so far away (at least I keep telling myself that) I`m still all about carb loading cooking hearty, satisfying dinners.  BBQ`s, fresh salads and watermelon are sadly not on the menu. (Possibly because our BBQ is buried under the snow.)


Beef Stroganoff with cream cheese, sour cream and white wine.  I might be fearing the beach because of this stuff...

On a brighter note, the kind weather-woman on the local evening news says that ``spring-like`` conditions and seasonally (warmer) temperatures are on their way this week. Bring it on bitch, mama needs to see the light of day...

Hopefully the sun is shining, tulips are popping and flippy-floppy`s are being worn where you live...

Update on my Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips
 Cue: shock and amazement. These nail strips actually held up. Except for some minor peeling at the cuticle, the last pic was taken after 8 days of wear! I`m thinking they`re worth the 10 dollars after all...

8 Days...not too shabby Ms. Sally Hansen!

Though I`m getting really tired of Houndstooth...

Wow, I'm glad I'm not where you guys live! Here in Denmark spring has really sprung - no more snow, but sunny instead. And it's getting warmer which is nice. But we have had a lot of snow these past winter. I was really "over it" at the end too. Hope spring will find you soon! :)

I know, it so does not feel like spring yet does it? Only fair to post the recipe if you're going to post yummy food pics :)

I am so glad those nail strips held up! I am really excited to try mine out now.

Oh no! You have much more snow than we do. The snow is melting here and it's actually beginning to feel like Spring. Which means (since we live so close) Spring is just around the corner in Calgary.

Those stickers held up well!

Have a great weekend despite the Winter weather conditions!

Ugh. I'm so sorry winter hasn't left your area yet. What a bummer! I hope the warm weather and sun arrive your way soon!

The weather here has been pretty bi polar. It will be 90 degrees one day and snowing the next. It sucks.

PS. Your kids are adorbs! xo
