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″!
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.
Doing loads and loads of laundry this week! Thankfully, I have a pretty place to do it!
Are you doing anything fun for the Super Bowl this year? We are staying in so my daughter and I are making a bunch of fun apps. If you have any favorites that you love to make, let me know in the comments. I’m always looking for new things to make!
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?
