Another day of freezing weather. Becky got a much wanted snow day, even though we didn’t get much snow. Just lots of wind and really cold temperatures. Decided to beat the winter blahs by heading over to Crocker Park. Becky got her haircut-really super cute. Stopped at Trader Joe’s for snacks and bought myself some yellow roses. They didn’t fair well on the way home, but they’re still pretty. Stopped at the yarn shop and bought sock yarn. Bright red with stripes. Can’t wait to get started on that pair. Note to self: finish the pair you’re working on. Found these for $5.00 on clearance

Aren’t they cute?

Starting my second pair of socks. Normally I despise wearing socks, but with wind chills below zero and the cuteness of these socks, I thought it was time to get another pair going. Love how they’re turning out.

Essential food for freezing cold days. Chicken Noodle Soup. Homemade by me.

A little late starting this, but better late than never.

An ode to The Pioneer Woman who inspired a delicious dinner of pot roast and veggies. Her site is hilarious and she is an incredible photographer. I can live on a ranch in the middle of nowhere just by looking at her photos and making pot roast for my version of the marlboro man.
