These two are ready for Daytona.. they don't need candy and heart shaped paraphernalia for Valentine's Day. No sir... they need racin'!

If couldn't already tell, these two have parents (and a grandfather) who are obsessed with Jimmie Johnson .. Mr. #48

It's going to be a long season folks.

Tiny Love

Today is the day. The day I get to pack my flip flops and catch a plane for sunny Florida! I'm excited for several reasons. The top 3 being:

1. We have snow on the ground, and I am so OVER IT!
2. I get to see Bethany and pretty much do absolutely nothing for 5 days!
3. Lily! Remember a couple months back when I was making this, well she's finally here! (3 weeks on Friday)

So, of course hubs will be spending his Valentine's by himself. I'm sure he's okay with that. Although he's getting company, don't think I'd leave him to a while weekend alone!!! His parents will be staying til Monday.

In honor of Valentine's day and sweet baby Lily, I made this for her first one!


My favorite part is the little ruffles on the legs! It was entirely too easy to do. And since she's only 3 weeks old and Florida isn't THAT warm, I made her a few pair of baby leg warmers!

So two things I can cross off the list of things I'd like to learn and master. The leg warmers by the way are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO easy.

Anyway, I'm off to breakfast with the hubs! With all this snow, ETSU has canceled classes today so Im taking him to a truly traditional college student breakfast! I should know, I was one for 4 years prior to my recent attempt at returning. So off we go to breakfast in our JAMMIES!!

Snow Cream

This past weekend Brian's brother and his wife stopped in on their way home from a friends house. Since we obviously had snow on the ground, they suggested we make Snow Cream.

Actually we had about 5 inches of snow and an inch and a half of ice on top of that. So technically this could have been called Ice Cream!! Before I show you the goods and how easy it was to make, I'll make you sit through these photos.

Brian and I kept thinking how eerily quiet it was before, during and after this snow storm. The skies looked different and absolutely none of the animals were moving.

It was cool to see the snow falling over the mountain into NC


It was like the consistency of homeade ice cream... well to me anyway. We made so much of it that of course Brian was the only one to finish his.

The ingredients were simple:

2 eggs beaten

2 Tbsp Vanilla

1 can Evaporated Milk

1 C Sugar

1 Gal of Snow, CLEAN SNOW!!(which measuring this was awkward)

We took ours off the car since we have way to many animlas running around here

Mix it all together and you get Snow Cream!
