It's time again for Project Life Tuesday. Week Five was all about the weather! Here in Texas we usually only get one or two good snow/ice events every winter. And Mother Nature decided to dump both on us this week while the whole country is watching for Super Bowl Week!
Sunday - it was unseasonably warm and Greg and Cullen had to get outside and play.
Monday - Bindi the cat has to be right up in my face even when I'm on the computer.
Tuesday - 19 degrees and ice and snow. Means no school for the kids and a long rough drive to work for mom and dad.
Wednesday - Ice is still hanging around with a high of 18 degrees again today.
Thursday - Cullen and Dakota, his friend from across the street decided the ice would make a good makeshift ice hockey rink.
Friday - More snow fell overnight and Madison decided to get out and play.
Saturday -- Staying in out of the cold means breaking out a new jigsaw puzzle for the family to work on.

When we moved to North Texas almost 4 years ago the new Cowboys Stadium was just a HUGE hole in the ground and everyone was talking about the Super Bowl was coming. It seemed so far away at the time! For these last 4 years we've joked about getting out of town when the Super Bowl comes to town, how awful the crowds are going to be, etc. Well now it's here!
Unfortunately we haven't been very good hosts this week. Terrible weather has slowed everything down. These Green Bay and Pittsburgh fans just don't understand that we usually don't have to drive in ice and snow here in TX, we don't know how to do it!! All of the celebrity parties have been either cancelled or barely attended. Roads have been horrible for driving from event to event. We don't really have snowplows here. The DOT borrowed some from West Texas this week.
But despite all the weather and traffic trouble, tomorrow afternoon over 100,000 people will gather at Jerry Jones' palace in Arlington and play football. And it should be a great game!

It's time again for Project Life Tuesday! This week I did one of my planned theme weeks. I love having our home reflect our experiences and memories. So this week I concentrated on capturing the photos and decorations around our house that mean the most to me.

I ordered this plaque from a wonderful vendor on Etsy last year. I love all her personalized plaques and want more. This one is hanging over the large window in our dining room.

We took Madison's picture in front of each letter at the entrance plaza at Disney's California Adventure back in 2001 when we first went to Dinsey while living in California. This past summer we did the same with Cullen and those photos are at the framers now finally getting their matching frame. Sadly, they just took these huge letters down recently to make way for a new entrace to the park, so we are glad we have these!

I loved this frame the minute I saw it at Kirklands. It holds a photo of Greg and the kids feeding dolphins at SeaWorld.

This is a pencil drawing of the Maison deVille Hotel Audobon Cottages in New Orleans where Greg and I stayed during part of our honeymoon. Greg brought the print back from a business trip to New Orleans.
