or let it go

we're home. we threaded the needle, as some people say, and missed state after state of icky weather. no ice, rain or snow for us…and we even breezed through rush hour traffic in nashville and completely avoided road construction along the way. believe me, we are feeling very blessed and very lucky.

then today, it snowed. a spitting and biting cold snow. {wait, did she just say a cold snow?} if you live in a place where winter is really winter and it snows, you talk like this, because honestly, there is such a  thing as a warm snow. and if you want to get really fancy, there's also a wet snow and a dry snow, but hey…you probably already knew that.

does anyone besides us listen to today's comedy radio on pandora? can i just say that my face still hurts from laughing so hard…literally, for hours and hours. if you ever have a long drive, to like anywhere, please take my advice and listen to…jim gaffigan, mike birbiglia, louis c.k., demetri martin, dane cook, john mulaney, john heffron and don friesen just to name a few. with that said, if you have littles in the car with you, this station unfortunately won't even be close to appropriate. i'm sorry. but hey, you can always sing "let it go" with your littles…for the tenth time. it will be almost the same thing.

and last but not least…the voice the voice the voice...which just started another season….is so much better than american idol. just saying. oh, and the train wreck also known as the bachelor…oh my days, i am so guilty of watching it…and laughing…out loud.


  1. Welcome home! Sorry our paths didn't cross while you were in Florida. Glad your travel was easy!
    Love the Voice. Some incredible talents shining already!
    Hope the rest of winter is easy on you.
    Big love!

  2. There is no place like home. Except maybe Seaside. We will see you at the beach, same time next year. Hugs!

  3. welcome home. I don't know anything about snow, so its fascinating to me these different ways it can be in the world. love the photo.

  4. Glad you made it home and had a fun and safe time doing it, love the roof top image also with the foreground image. You made me laugh just hearing you talk about your trip and the snow, so true.

  5. So happy your trip home was safe and you really avoided all the hassle on the road home. There was a lot of that going on! I know all what you mean by the wet, cold, warm, dry snow. I don't think it's the snow getting me this year -- it's that cold. When I did my last post about being tougher then, I really think we were. What a time we had back then. Now -- well, I'm just glad you chalked off a couple of months in sunnier climes!

  6. I must agree with you on the Bachelor and The Voice vs. American Idol. The guys last night on The Voice were all good.
    Yes, though I don't live in much snow I do know what you mean about the different kind of snows. Be warm. Glad you could
    be in the sunshine of Florida for awhile and had a safe trip home.

  7. Lately we have had snow so cold that is sounds like styrofoam rubbing together when you walk on it. Glad you made it home safely, back to the land of ice and snow. Spring is coming...somewhere :) The Voice...oh yes. I have some favorites from night one, not so much on night two. We will see what this week brings.

  8. glad you are home safely! I hope you honked at me when you drove through Sweet Home Alabama! :)

  9. Right now, we are having a dry snow, which I'm not real happy about: if it's gonna snow, at least let it be wet so we can get out and have decent snowball fights. ; ) Glad you made it home safely!
