Oh the weather outside is…finally nice and warm!
The kids went back to school today, and I’m trying to get my life together because, of course, this was already supposed to have been a crazy busy week…so, while I’m running around like a crazy woman today, you stay warm, sip your coffee and enjoy a little life lately. I seriously love you people so much! xx
On Valentine’s Day morning, we woke up to icy roads, so church was online only which meant, we got to stay warm and cozy inside all day. My little Valentine’s burrito was very happy about that!
My forever Valentine.
On Sunday afternoon, we let the kids play in the snow. They had so much fun!
On Valentine’s night, we had fajitas for dinner, and then all six of us cozied up in our room and watched Crazy Rich Asians together. We, ironically, declared it the best Valentine’s Day ever.
At 1:00 AM, our power went out…and that’s where things went downhill.
Many of our local areas were “rolling” blackouts, so we assumed that was what was happening to us. The day started off promising because we thought they’d turn the power back on soon, so we made the most of it.
The kids played in the snow, they used their sleds…
…we had so much fun!
But reality set in quickly, and we just made do with what we had. Erika’s family did have power, so they were sweet enough to let us shower over there since we didn’t have hot water and the house was dark. We got our power back at 9:00 on Wednesday morning, but were without water until Thursday evening.
A few pics of the snow from Thursday afternoon.
I love these kiddos so much!!
By Friday, things were feeling back to normal around here. Her sass had returned 100%. 😉
Andrew snapped this picture on Friday night. I love everything about it. A girl, with her dog, reading a book while her cookies bake.
On Saturday night, we cozied up (again!) and watched Crazy Rich Asians for the millionth time 🙂 .
That’s life lately.
Please continue to pray for my neighbors and other Texans whose homes have been damaged this past week. It’s really been devastating to see, and my heart hurts for so many people right now. Sending so much love today and prayers to so many. I’m thankful for this community right here because I truly know you’re praying. See you all tomorrow. xo
