potpourri friday ~ randomness from my week


1. my secret santa gift:
     my secret santa was stefanie (who AM, the orchestrator of secret santa, has known since college!)...she sent me this kit for a winter wreath that she purchased on etsy...
    i'm excited to 'make it'...but i am torn between just making it now or waiting for a snow day...cause for some reason this project just says 'snow day' to me...(fingers crossed, we may get a snow day this weekend...)

    here's a picture of the completed project taken from the etsy seller's site:
    thanks so much, stefanie...this is so me!

     2. why i have difficulty ironing:

     3. what the husband wanted to wear to work on thursday:
    i am not making this up... 
    the red/white plaid thing is a silk bowtie..
     and i said 'no'
    cause for reals....that ain't matching

     4. our massive snowstorm that virtually shut our city down thursday:
    again, i am not making this up...schools were CLOSED

    but isn't my tree lovely in the 'snow'?

    have a great weekend! hope your shopping is all complete...

    Wow...very cool secret santa gift!

    Isn't this the craziest weather this week? I mean I know it's nearly winter as stuff but at least here, we don't see much cold and snow until January. The kids here have been out nearly all week from snow and then our ice storm.

    Glad you like your Secret Santa gift! Can't wait to see the wreath after you've completed it.
    Happy Holidays!

    I had heard tales about how NC shuts down when they so much as say the word "flurries". Wow...that is crazy!!
