Our Snowy Super Bowl Sunday Weekend

Goodness gracious it snowed alot here this past weekend! I think overall we got about 16 inches. I don't know about you, but for us that is alot of snow. I guess since we come from Texas anything over a couple of inches is crazy.

Friday me and my unlucky self had to venture out at 5:15am to head to work. That was a royal pain in the ass. My hands were sore when I got there from gripping my steering wheel so tight. Tahoe's aren't the best for driving on icy roads. Add a girl behind the wheel who isn't used to icy roads and it's even worse. I was flying to work at the good 'ol speed of 20mph. 

My lucky husband got to take the day off and do his schoolwork from home so when I got home from work he was there.  That was SO nice! 

Saturday he talked me into going outside and making a snowman.

Proud of his hard work.

He pretty much made the snowman while I took pictures. Good work hun!

This is what I was doing while he was busy lifting heavy balls of snow.

* Thank you Dad for the hat!* 

This snow was deep! I am 5'10 and it went over my knees!

Saturday night we made another "treasure" from our chocolate cookbook. Recipe coming soon!

Sunday was Super Bowl day. We did the American thing and made fried pickles (recipe also coming soon), and wings and laid in front of the TV for most of the day.

If you have never had fried pickles you must try them!

My husband the Chef. He made delicious wings!

We hope you all had a great Super Bowl Sunday weekend!!
