This year, I’m going to be linking up to Andrea every other Tuesday for her Show and Tell Tuesdays :). Andrea was telling me about this idea way back in December and I just love, love, loved it, so I’m super happy to be participating today. I missed the first few due to our trip to China, but I’m here now.
Just so you know, here is what’s coming up this year on Show and Tell Tuesdays…
Today, she’s asking us to pick our Groundhog Day…you know, that day that you would pick to do over and over and over again (like the movie Groundhog Day).
I thought long and hard about this…because if I’m saying I would do this day over and over again for the rest of my life, it needs to be a good one.
A little disclaimer…the day I picked does not have Ashby in it. I picked a day from 2013 (before we adopted), so please indulge me in saying that I would pick this day but would include Ashby. We’re pretending, right? Let’s pretend Ashby can be with us too :).
The day I would repeat over and over again is
December 6, 2013.
This ended up being such a great day for several reasons:
1. When it snows in North Texas, we shut things down. No school, no work, no leaving your house…all fun.
2. It was at the beginning of the Christmas season, so our house was decorated, we had holiday movies to watch, a tree in our living room, cocoa to drink, Christmas goodies to bake, carols to listen to…it was so nice. Typically, our snow days fall in January and February, so it was super festive to have one before Christmas.
3. The four of us (we’re going to pretend that it would be the five of us if this day was on repeat) played in the snow, sat by the fire, baked cookies, and stayed cozy all day.
It was the perfect day :).
This would be my Groundhog Day.
I was with my family.
My house was decorated for Christmas.
I ate cookies.
I didn’t have to get out of my sweats or put on makeup.
It was cozy.
There you have it! To read the full post and see other pics, click here.
In two weeks, Show and Tell is about how we met our mate and got engaged…ahhh..here’s a brief bit…I ended up paying for our engagement dinner myself :). You’ll have to come back to hear the rest.
Thanks Andrea! I can’t wait to read all of them!
Don’t forget my foodie blog today…
…my Mexican Minestrone.
Tomorrow, I’m blogging about our first month with Ashby. See you then!
