Happy Weekend, Blah Weekend

The weekend started off great as we saw….

DSC02434SNOW!!!!!DSC02438Here we are with our snow PEANUT!  Dothan is known as the Peanut Capital of the World (very ironic because I am deathly allergic to peanuts).  They have “peanuts around town” that are painted and dressed up like a shopping peanut, a firefighter peanut, a cowboy peanut, etc.  So my mom suggested we make a snow peanut!  It took almost all of the snow in our front yard, but… :)DSC02447 And of course the customary snow angels!DSC02459 DSC02453

Both the snow angels and the snow peanut look a little sad because you can still see grass and leaves, but around here we will take what we can get!  This was the first snow Dothan has seen in 17 years!!  CRAZY!  We had fun though, watching the snow and playing in it.  Ahh, great Friday.

Then the snow melted and life got poopy again.  :)  This weekend we got not one, but two pregnancy announcements from close friends.  One of my best friends in Alaska is pregnant with her second child and one of the guys that Barry carpools with is pregnant with their first.  So I just got finished hiding some more people on my Facebook news feed.  I hate doing it, but I want people to feel free to be excited and share info on their pregnancies, but I just can’t see it.  So they are blocked.  I love you dearly friends of mine, but I just can’t see that.  I am getting a chance to act out my love and not jealousy…sooner than I thought.  :)

On a happier note, we had a nice romantic Valentine’s dinner at home Saturday night, got to watch loads of Olympics (I LOVE the winter Olympics) and then on a blah note, did our taxes yesterday!  Woo-hoo! 

And that was our weekend…some good, some blah…


  1. I was the same way about pregnancy facebook updates before I finally succeeded. Even now that I am pg there are still a few I block, like the one who posts every other day some complaint about her pregnancy (which I will spare you examples). PLEASE!!! DON'T whine about your pregnancy to the world, honestly. Your hubby, your mom, some friends, sure, because let's face it- there are some less pleasant things about it. But not your 500 buddies on facebook every other day, especally since you never know who (or maybe you do) would love to take every ache you have to be pregnant. Just rude. I don't even think I'll be unblocking that particular annoyance even after she has her baby, lol

  2. Your house is so cute! I love the color!!

    Good luck w/ facebook.... I still don't have an account there!

  3. Yay snow! (I've never seen snow, sad I know). My DH shakes his head whenever I sign on to facebook only to hear/see another pregnancy/birth announcement. It drives me crazy, but I still prefer to find out in the privacy of my own home so I can grieve, scream and cry (or whatever is necessary) without offending anyone. Hoping for more snow for you.

  4. I'm a FB blocker, too. Blocked one last night. Pregnancy announcement? See ya in nine months, "friend"! :)

  5. Love the snow "peanut" and "angels"! :-) Such a cute house too!!!!
