Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms
We had a huge snowstorm in the northeast. NJ was predicted to get 18-24 inches of snow but got less. The storm was still pretty bad and all of our schools were closed for a snow day which was nice for the kids.
When the snowstorm ended, we headed up to our Vermont cabin. We plan to decorate for the holidays, do some snowshoeing and spending lots of quality time in front of a fire.
Here’s a funny story…
Although we called ahead for snow plowing services, our driveway wasn’t plowed when we arrived in Vermont. We got hit with over two feet of snow so you can imagine what our driveway looked like. And it was plowed in from street plowing.
My husband drives a huge truck so he drove over the plow mountain into our driveway. Apparently, our truck isn’t as invincible as once thought since it got stuck once we pulled in. LOL. After some digging, we were able to get it out so all was good! We were plowed out first thing in the morning. Yay!
Here are some pics from my snowshoeing adventure with Shana. We hiked the VAST trail for a bit.
In addition to getting lots of snow in both NJ and VT, we also did lots of cool stuff on the blog!
Have you seen the paper bag snowflakes that are all the rage today? They look so cool and are really easy to make. It’s a great craft to do with kids. But don’t make the same mistake I did when making them. CLICK HERE to see how to make them.
In preparation for the big snowstorm, I made a HUGE pot of Sunday sauce with meatballs and sweet Italian sausages.
It is SOOOOOO good! CLICK HERE for the recipe.
Amazing Inspiration from Around the Web
I love finding cool inspiration from around the web and wanted to share some of what I’m loving right now.
My favorite thing about blogging is the great friends I’ve made around the globe.
And I want to share some of them with you this week because they are really inspiring me.
Since I haven’t quite given up on my pumpkin spice lattes yet, Rachelle from My Hubbard Home really inspired me with her Warm and Cozy Winter Coffee’s post. I think I found my new winter coffee – I am totally making these!
Ok so for me it’s all about food and beverages this week. I stumbled on my good friend Jennifer from Cottage on Bunker Hill’s recipe for instant pot pulled pork and I have to make it. Anything that cooks up easy in an instant pot and looks as good as this I am totally making!
And these cookies by my good friend Jennifer from J Dubby Design sound amazing! Who wouldn’t love s’mores stuffed chocolate chip cookies.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today and everyday! I really appreciate all of your sweet comments and feedback. I hope you enjoy the holidays!
Enjoy your day! xoxo
