Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms

It was a super snowy week here in New Jersey! First, we got hit with a snowstorm that dropped about 30″ and today, we are expecting another 4-7″!

And it wouldn’t be so bad if I wasn’t doing all the snow removal myself! Thank goodness I have this   and these to help me because they are lifesavers during these storms!

Why am I doing all the snow removal myself?

Well…the virus hit my house over two weeks ago so we’ve been quietly quarantining here. Thankfully, we are all good now and coming out of quarantine.

Luckily, my youngest and I did not get it so we just needed to hunker down and keep everything clean.

And snow free.

We’ll watch it in front of a cozy fire. As much as I enjoy a good game, the commercials are always so good, aren’t they?

    1. Thanks for the comment – the roses are faux and were bought on sale for $5 per bunch several years ago. They can be re-used yearly which is pretty budget-friendly. Aside from that, photos you see on blogs and social media are an inspiration – you don’t have to do the same thing.
