We've had some super cold weather around here lately and, well, I found out I'm not as tough as I thought! We dipped down into the teens, which is rare for the land of Little Mama and oh my, it was colder than cold. The news said it hasn't been this cold here in over twenty years. We had night after night of hard freezes and all of the pretty Southern plants around here are just looking so sad.
This Deep South girl did learn a few things about super cold weather:
* Don't wear shorts to the gym when it's 18 degrees.
* If you have ice on your windshield,
chances are that your windshield wiper
fluid is frozen, too.
* Driving with ice on your windshield only
makes the ice more frozen. One should
probably scrape it off before starting to
drive. (Um, yes, I learned this lesson in
* The heater in my car takes a very long 5
minutes to get going.
* I rode in my friend's car during the cold
weather and holy cow ... heated seats
* This one's from my Mama : "I totally get
snow birds now."
* Shea butter is my best friend.
* Scarves aren't just for cuteness. They
keep you warm, too. :)
Speaking of scarves, Sister snagged one off of one of her stuffed animals to help keep her warm. She loves to accessorize!
Last week, the girls only went to preschool one day because of the weather. So, I didn't quite get as much done around the house as I had hoped. My Christmas decorations almost outwore their welcome!
Thankfully, I finally got everything packed up and ready for the attic. Yay!!!
I spent most of the week getting ready for our upcoming garage sale. That's no easy feat considering that we've turned a corner and Bitty Baby is into everything, everywhere!
While I was working (in the same room), I found her putting her snack in the fireplace!
