Snow, snow, snow and more snow!

Holy Camoly we have gotten some snow today! LOL. We must have gotten at least 12 inches today. You should see my poor little dogs go potty! LOL.
I made peppermint bark and fudge tonight! OMG the peppermint bark is so stinkin' good! I have never made it and was a little nervous but pulverizing the candy was fun! LOL I am definitely going to make more tomorrow!
I also decorated one of my teacher journals today. It's so cute! I will share pics of it tomorrow, along with some more snow pics!
I ventured out four times today! Stupid me! Driving was treacherous! I had to take Katie to work this morning at 10, then at about 2 pm, I went back to her work to buy some stuff for making the candy, then at 6:30 I had to go pick her up from work, and then at 8:30 tonight we drove to Michaels, which took a good 40 minutes! All four trips, my van was having a hard time gripping the road everytime I went uphill or turned! So stupid to go to Michaels. When I got on the highway, a big diesel passed me in the fast lane and kicked up a bunch of powdery snow into my windshield and I couldn't see A THING for a good 20 seconds!! I was so mad and my heart was pounding! I had to let off the gas pedal and start really slowing down. I was trying not to just mash on the breaks! In the meantime, I couldn't see where I was going. Thank GOD that part of the highway is straight. Otherwise, I would have gone off the road. I just kept the steering wheel still and was preparing myself for hitting a guard rail or something. I was freaking out! But then the dust settled and no one else passed me the rest of the way. But the roads weren't even plowed! Not the highway or the surface streets. Not good to be driving out in a snow storm like that. LOL. Don't ask me why I went! LOL. I had a coupon for an extra 15% off my total purchase including sale items. So I got a great deal on wrapping paper and christmas cards! LOL My friend was picking on me when I told her where I was going! :)
Anyway, just wanted to share my day. Oh, and I also had to snowblow the driveway! Nice fluffy snow so it wasnt' too bad but sometimes that thing is such a beast to manuever.
So I will check in again tomorrow, share some pics and some other stuff. I think the kids are going to have a snow day tomorrow. Oh and I will share my recipes too. Have a wonderful evening. I am off to bed. Thanks for stopping by!
