Happy Friday friends! I'm linking up today for Five on Friday with DARCI, CHRISTINA, LIZ, and NATASHA. (Only I'm really doing a Four on Friday because the stomach flu has hit and taken any energy I have away to come up with one more thing.. )
Scarlet and Gold is offering a FREE calligraphy class. Did your heart just skip a beat like mine did? I've always wanted to learn calligraphy but have never taken a class or tried to teach myself. When I heard they would be offering a free online class I immediately signed up and purchased my supplies. I can't wait for the first session! If you are interested you can sign up here.
I made fajita stuffed peppers for dinner one night this week and they were amazing. You can find the recipe here. I switched out the chicken for ground beef and the brown rice for quinoa. This is a new favorite in our house!
Let it snow (pretty please!) NC had lots of snowy weather earlier this week. I mentioned we were out of school on Tuesday because of freezing rain. That's just not cutting it though! I want the real deal.. SNOW. Everywhere else in NC has gotten snow this winter except where I live. I'm so jealous of all the pictures my friends are sending me of the snow! I remain hopeful we will get some (maybe? just a little!). Justin and I started talking about snow and the conversation somehow led to "we need to do a snow dance" which led to googling "how to do a snow dance". While we were researching this important topic we learned some other fun ways to make it snow. Like, putting ice cubes on your front porch, putting a spoon under your pillow, put a white crayon in the freezer, run around your table 5 times, wear your pj's backwards, do a snow dance and flush an ice cube down the toilet. We may have completed ALL of these. Except the white crayon because I didn't have one. Even with all that, still no snow. I blame it on the crayon.
It looks like the stomach bug has made it way to our house. I was at a hair appointment yesterday when it hit me- worst timing ever right?! I had to leave with my hair still wet to go home. After a miserable evening and night I'm hoping the worst is over.
