Mostly just picture posts for the unforeseeable future. Blah but it'll have to do. Sorry, Texas.

We happen to get another beautiful snow in early January, and I had to post some of the pretty pictures. I only got a few in our neighborhood because I was quickly distracted. This is what you see as you turn out of our neighborhood. This is just a small section of this huge, beautiful farm.There's railing and a ditch in front of the farm but, there's only a short distance of railing in front of that ditch.So...If you pull out with your camera and cell phone in your lap because you just have to take pictures of the pretty scenery and don't realize that it could be slick...This happens. Yep, you spin around and slam right smack dab into a telephone pole while your coffee splatters all over your car. This was my choice on the other side of the road. You can see why I opted for the pole.

The damage is very minimal but I really thought it was going to be terrible. Just a small crack that probably isn't worth fixing. Oh, and my license plate holder was knocked off but, Tennessee doesn't require a front plate anyway so no biggie. I'm just thankful I stopped at the pole and didnt't go right through the fence. Whew!

After a few frantic attempts and flinging of mud, I finally shimmied outta there. Nathan was staying home with the kids since school was closed and begged me not to go to work after he inspected everything. Are you crazy?! I get paid by the hour, boy! I promised to go slow on my long journey and let him know as soon as I was safe in my office. Everyone at work knew about my little accident by the time I walked in and were smiling and giggling. All three lawyers had some wise crack to make and, one of them found it funny to start calling me Crash. Hardee har har, people!

Ok, how sweet is this??? So, I go out with a friend the night before my birthday and have lots of fun and wake up on my birthday morning to find that my wonderful husband made me my favorite muffins AND a cake while I was gone. A CAKE, PEOPLE!
And in the shape of a heart! Can you believe that??? He even iced the sides and everything. I rarely ice the sides of a cake anymore because it frustrates me to no end. This was the first time he's ever made one...I think he did a pretty darn good job!Nathan also arranged for the kids to stay the night with friends while we went out to eat at our favorite hibachi place. I've mentioned before how good it is. It's really good. Soooo very good but yet soooo bad for my sensitive tummy. I don't care though.

Does this guy love me or what?!

I didn't really stress about turning 30 but, saying that I'm 31...Kinda hurts a little. That's alright though because age is just a number and in my mind I'm gonna be FOREVER YOUNG!
