A Snowy Five on Friday

1. Happy snow day!!! We are hoping it does not get super icy and we lose power. Fingers crossed Ella can go play in the snow later!

{This was actually taken on Wednesday when it was sleeting! Ella wanted to go play in it!}

2. Since my husband is a true Southerner, of course we had to hit up the store yesterday before the big storm! I didn't dare go near Harris Teeter (the parking lot looked insane); Target was a much safer bet! We picked up some snow boots for Ella, a shovel (last year Trav had to "shovel" our driveway with a broom, ha!), and a screen for the fireplace (you know, since we are going to lose power, we will have to burn a fire and we didn't want Ella to go jumping in the fireplace or anything). 
We actually didn't get any bread or milk! 

3. If you're looking for something to make on this snowy, icy day, let me recommend this Creamy White Chili.

Someone posted it on the moms group I am in on Facebook, and it was delicious!! I honestly did not think I would like it as much as I did!

4. We had another fun week at gymnastics class!

She has been really into it! I love watching her explore the different equipment and get her energy out!

5. I have a little snow day(s) project! Time to paint again! 

This time it's the living room's turn! 
Please do not ask me why all of these rooms in my house were painted red (well, it was really just Ella's room/bathroom and this room). Ugh. I picked out SW Repose Gray, and I'm hoping it will look something like this when I'm done. 

Have a great weekend! If it's snowy/icy where you are, be safe!
