Snow Days...

Isn't that pretty?? Yeah, I think so too, I really do. But. You saw that coming didn't you? Sometimes, I get soooo sick of it! Especially, when you are stuck in the house and can't get out of your freakin' driveway! Ugh:(

I truly do love snow days...especially the part where I get to spend time with my family. I also love that I don't HAVE to do anything, because it's like a free day. A day where you can just hang out, maybe bake or clean or just watch some TV.

But then it's enough already and I want to go outside. I want to go shopping, go out to eat, to the store...something. Does anyone else feel this way? Stuck. In the house for days with the children and nothing to do.

I know those perfect mother's who craft with the children, bake with the children, redo a room with the children. I am not that mother. My kid is not that kid. He's not into the craft thing. He's only into the baking thing for about two minutes, and who has time to do redo a room!

I just want to go outside!

Now, I sound like the children.

Did I mention I'm a teacher? And we haven't had outside recess for daaaaaaaaaaaays?

He got to go outside...for two seconds!

In my defense I did bake after all. I made cupcakes, then I graded papers, cleaned the bathrooms, and watched The Croods with my kiddo! :)

And tomorrow we are going to sled down the driveway, make snow ice cream, and enjoy another free day together!

Oh, and shovel the car out of the driveway...maybe.

Um, there's no suggestion list of things to do. We're you looking for one? Sorry.

If you have one, will you send it to me? No crafts. No baking. No DYI projects. Never mind.

So, tell me...what do you do on snow days?

Oh, okay...here's a list of things to do. It's from The Happy Housewife. She rocks! Maybe I'll pick one of her things to do tomorrow! :)

Check her out!

I'm Baaaackkkkkkkkkk! :)

OMG! It's been almost a year and a half since my last post. Wowza! I've made many a cookie since then, but just kind of let the blog thing go. But I missed it and decided to give it another whirl!

Lots has happened since my last post. For starters, I graduated from college and started my first teaching job! Yay! I'm a third grade teacher to 22 of the greatest kids ever! I've also started my master's program...I know I'm crazy, I guess I don't think I'm busy enough! My "baby" is in 1st grade! Can you believe it?! Me either!

Honestly, I'm not sure how often I'll be able to keep up with the blog, but I'm going to give it a good effort! It was one of my New Year's Resolutions. That and less time on the computer...not sure how those two are going to work out together ;)

I hope to share some tips with you on cookie making...the easy way. My cookies have become much more simple and frankly that's the way I like them! I'm a busy woman and I just don't have time to make fancy ol' cookies all the time. But I will tell you this, they are tasty and they still impress!

These were some of my favorites from 2013...I'm especially loving those tropical ones right now...kind of sick of all this snow! :(

I will be sharing more details on how I actually do my cookies and not just pics of the finished product. I hope to inspire you to make your own sugar cookies! Your family and friends will be so impressed! I'm still amazed at the reactions I get from my sugar cookies...especially because there is sooo much amazing talent out there!

It feels good to be back...hoping you will join me when you can :)
