It’s over and done with…thank you snow gods! I love snow and usually, USUALLY don’t mind shoveling the nice fluffy white stuff but I am done with winter.

Last night I attempted to go out and shovel the snow but the wind was so bad I didn’t want to risk it. Plus the wind didn’t stop last night so I would have shoveled for no reason. It was nice to curl up on the couch and watch a movie.

This morning I had the pleasure of leading Team “Dig Out of the Driveway”….with my two side kicks: La La Lilly and Hipster Hilary. Luckily we have an AMAZING neighbour who came over and used her snow blower on 90% of our driveway!

Okay Spring…we’re all ready for you. This rain, snow and ice pellets that you have forecasted for this weekend – don’t even think about it.

Do your little kids wear sunglasses on sunny days?

Since it’s Spring…what’s your favourite thing do to ?

  1. alright, I’m officially done complaining how cold it is! at least I don’t have to deal with a massive snow storm, I hope spring comes your way soon!!!

  2. Those are the cutest little snow helpers I’ve ever seen! I’m glad it’s all over for you and I hope that’s it! I’m so done with winter too.

    And yes we definitely rock some sweet shades over here. Even inside sometimes!
