WOW! We got snow coming out our ears!!!
My oven at home doesn't work (SUPER long story, the stove top does, just not the oven), so we had planned to go to my father-in-laws, about 15 to 20 minutes away, on Saturday so I could make eleventy-billion cookies for our co-workers! Well, we decided we were gonna make the trek regardless of the snow!
Sign number 1 we shoulda stayed home....I had to put trash bags over each leg and tie them just under my butt just to walk to the car in the driveway! the snow was over my knees!
Sign number 2...The following is a public service announcement...if you are driving in the snow, and you find an orange caution barrel in the middle of the road, yeah, it's probably there for a reason!
We always take back roads from our house to Dad's. Not a good idea in this much snow. After we passed the above mentioned barrel, we turned on the next road on our journey. The wipers were packing up with snow, so rob got out to wipe them off so he could see. He discovered that the snow was so deep that it was over the bumper of our 4runner and we were in fact plowing our own way! We were trucking right on through(going 10 miles an hour, tops) so we forged on! What we forgot was that the first half mile of this road is nothing but fields on either side, with no fences or power poles to delineate the road. We are moving slowly but steadily when suddenly...the passenger side drops! yeah, we were in the ditch! and spinning tires! I started praying like crazy, while trying to keep from hyperventilating, when finally Rob, a.k.a My Knight in Shining Armour, got us out(with a little Divine nudge)!
What normally takes 20 minutes tops, took us over an hour to navigate!
I hope our co-workers appreciate their cookies!
By the time we left, the snow was practically to my waist! Totals for where Dad lives...45 inches!
I will have some fun pics and maybe even a video of Macy playing in the snow tomorrow!
Ok, the mani I am going to show you today is actually way simpler than I first intended!
I started with Sinful Colors "Midnight Blue"
Goodness Gracious is this color GORGEOUS! It just glows!
My plan was to then add China Glaze "Nova" just at the cuticles and drag it down just a bit, to the bottom 1/4 of the nail. Then add Konad snowflakes with Millennium.
BUT, as I was applying Nova, I noticed I was dragging in out a bit too much, but really liked it! So I scrapped the snowflake idea, and went for the glitter!
The result reminded me of ice crystals creeping up my nails!
(sorry for the scarred up nails, I didn't get to take pics 'til 3 days later)
It's a shame that the glitter doesn't sparkle in the pics like it does in real life!
Well, that's all for today!
Hope you have a wonderful day!
