Well weathermen…what happened to 2-4 inches?!?
This morning, I was greeted with much more snow than we were originally anticipating, and while it is pretty…I’m ready for it to just go awayyyyyyy. It’s certainly not something I’m looking forward to driving in either, so let’s hope that the main roads aren’t as horrible looking as our little back road.
Ahhhh, but hey…it’s Friday! So at least that’s something to look forward to, right? ;)
As I mentioned yesterday, last night Jay and I headed over to Joe & Kate’s house for dinner and boy-oh-boy was it delicious.
Kate prepared an amazing spread of fresh salad, potato salad, and bbq pulled chicken from the crockpot. I don’t know what it is, but it seems like bbq pulled chicken seems to happen at our dinner gatherings ALL the time. Not that I’m complaining…I mean, I LOVE the stuff. :)
Unfortunately, I was in charge of the dessert, which turned out to be a major fail. Well okay, not major…but it certainly wasn’t great. For whatever reason, the red velvet cake batter brownies that I cooked on Wednesday night did not turn out as well as my cake batter blondies usually do, and they were actually a little dry. Then, to top it off, the container of frosting (yeah, I totally cheaped out) was expired (goes to show you how often I use it!) and smelled all funny.
Luckily, Kate improvised and made us a white chocolate drizzle which helped…but it was still not my best showing.
Even their cutie cat, Iris, was skeptical of the goods.
Knowing that the brownies didn’t turn out all that well before leaving the house (hey, I had to taste test!) I also quickly whipped up some homemade caramel apple tartlets before leaving the house…
Okay, I’m totally kidding. They actually came right from my freezer, thanks to that Omaha Steaks order from back in December. They just needed to cook quick for 20 minutes in the oven and they were good to go…and they were actually REALLY good. Definitely a delicious backup. :)
In other random news, just had to share my latest obsession and quite possibly what we’ll call a pregnancy craving…
Fruit snacks. Yes, I am totally loving on these things right now. It came out of nowhere, and now I want them like, everyday. So random?!
I also want to say thanks for the feedback yesterday on the whole haircut thing. I know that I’m not going to do anything drastic, but I may just wind up getting a quick trim and possibly adding in some more layers and/or an angle to the front again. Either way, I’m still keeping it ponytail accessible!
So what’s good for the weekend, friends? Tonight Jay and I may head out to do a little nursery shopping. Tomorrow we’re having a couple of friends over, and Sunday, as of right now, is looking like a chill day. It’s also most likely the day I’ll spill the beans to you all. ;)
