About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Ice Storm 2010

Ice Storm 2010

This is what happens when the lights go out....

Yes, we have quite a storm headed our way. We had to stock up on supplies.:) The girls are so excited you would think we were going to Disney World! They are ready to camp out in front of the fire and dive into the junk food.:) I am not so excited. We had an ice storm last year and lost power for.... too long. I am not a camper, my friends. Not even when it's camping in my house. BUT, I am learning to "savor"! So, I believe I am ready for this adventure.:)

It is heading our way today.....right now. It looks like my area might be more rain and I am keeping my fingers crossed. I also hope everyone keeps their power.

I remember the ice storm in 2001 when we lived in AR...we had no power for almost a week! Good thing you are prepared with some yummy snacks!

Jill said...

Just did the SAME thing!- Oh! and stopped by Hobby Lobby too! :)

Happy snacking! (and I'm SO NOT a camping girl either!)
Blessings!

Oh, I do not handle lack of power well : ) Prayerfully, we will not lose it again this year. Two weeks out last year. ugh. I'm praying for you about the other, too, Sweetie!

Those goodies are called "staples" in our home!!!
I too hope you don't lose power for long...Just enough time that it is fun~♥
I read about the storm coming your way when I was in Spokane this morning. Always thinking about you~

Love,
Me~

Susan said...

We're supposed to get the snow/ice too - it snowed here for a few minutes (just long enough to get the kids excited) and then stopped. I'm afraid that was the calm before the storm. We're preparing for a long day tomorrow, but REALLY hope it clears before Sunday when we are supposed to fly out to Vegas...
Hope ya'll enjoy all that yummy junk food - even if you aren't snowed in...

Connie said...

Looks like you know how to make good of a potentially bad situation. Hope it wasn't too severe! Your daughers were excited about it because you're such a good mom!
Take care.

Kylie said...

Your Doritos look yummy! You'll have to let me know if they're good. I might have to try them sometime!

Firefly Hill said...

I hope you all are now through the storm and that you did not lose power! Stay warm by the fire...

I just read about your diagnosis...I am thinking about you and praying for you Lori! I hope everything will by OK.

xo,
