Still February and must admit trying my damndest to find the good right now.
More snow this past Sunday night and as of Monday we were told to brace ourselves for another storm on Thursday.
Fear was again running rampant and was even told on Monday when I dropped the girls off at pre-school that they were switching the Valentine’s Party to Wednesday in case Thursday was indeed a snow day!
And yup, Thursday totally was a snow day and brought us over another foot of snow on top of the foot we already had.
No end in sight and still have the rest of February and March to get through. God help me if it snows in April, because you may just find me cowering in the corner mumbling to myself! (Kidding, I think!)
Seriously though, as bad as it has been weather wise, I am so in need of finding the good with my weekly thankful things. So keep reading to find out now…
1. For funny commentary from Lily quite often. This weeks gem was Lily saying, “Hit it boys,” at breakfast!
2. Great friends like Amanda at Growing Up Madison giving us her leftover Gymboree Bucks for some kids shopping, where we got a nice amount of clothes.
4. Winning this adorable iPhone case from Raising Reagan’s Giveaway (I mentioned and finally received).
5. Getting to read and review It’s Really 10 Months, by Natalie Guenther, Kim Schenkelberg, and Celeste Snoggrass. Stay tuned for the review and a giveaway coming soon, too!
6. More nail fun with an oldie, but goodie with Chanel Le Vernis’s, Ciel De Nuit Night Sky.
7. Watching ice skating on Olympics with Lily Saturday night. Our favorite was Carolina Kostner from Italy ice skating to Ave Maria. Beautiful and so graceful, too!
8. Bright Smile review that I get to work on and get to whiten my teeth or free! I am sending my impressions back this weekend and hoping to get the kit soon to indeed whiten my teeth.
9. The Beatles 50th Anniversary Special on Sunday night. I got to watch the whole thing and seriously Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr rocked the house, as well as Foo Fighter’s Dave’s Grohl with Hey Bulldog, who was my next favorite from the night beside the two awesomely amazing Fab Two!

A side note by the way, I am on Instagram here and my hashtag to follow me is @jnine0712. Most of the photos above were indeed posted on there and trying to make an conscious effort for 2014 (one of my goals for the new year) to use Instagram more then ever and hope you will follow me over there if you haven’t already!*
