The week from Winter hell…and my nails!

So apparently when that darn rodent popped his head out and declared “6 more weeks of Winter suckers” he wasn’t playing!  I live in the Nashville area and this by far has been one of the coldest, weirdest Winters I can recall in my 20 years of living here’s .   It’s been in the single digits (and below) for overnight lows and snow/freezing rain/sleet hit us 3 times and one week!  And to top it off one night we experienced cryoseism which is basically like an ice quake.  Booms were going off that night and I just knew my house was cracking into pieces around me or ice sliding off the house and hitting the ground with tremendous force…nope, just Mother Nature.  Which I why I’m calling it the week from Winter hell!  hahaha

Speaking of Mother Nature, I’ve been in my house all week…with 2 kids…going crazy.  I may just have to set up something like this in my front yard…LOL!

The Olivia Pope Diet – Popcorn & Wine



It’s HUMP DAY!  If you watch Scandal then you know that Olivia’s meal of choice is typically wine & popcorn.  I mean she’s a single girl and works her azz off “fixing” stuff.  So she doesn’t really have time for full course meals.  LOL

After dinner and the house is quiet and calm, I get ready to watch Scandal each Thursday night at 8pm CST.  It is pretty much the only time that everyone in my house actually leaves me alone.  Even my 5yo knows not to mess with me.  A few weeks ago one of my favorite wine glasses broke and after I cried like a baby swept it up I realized I needed a new wine glass that would make watching one of my favorite shows even more enjoyable.
