no one mourns the wicked~

last night we had the pleasure of attending the opening of the musical~wicked
in dayton, ohio..
it was a private affair
invite only complete with a
wicked cocktail party with cocktails and
tons of hors d'oeuvres in the wicked colors of black and greenis this flying monkey ice sculpture too cool?flying monkeys circling abovelook at the hands holding the cauldron
in another room a complete offering of wicked desserts complete with
little green witch hats....
the pictures i took didnt do any justice to how special the night was as they were taken with my cell phone but it will give you an idea...
if you have the chance to see wickeddo it or see it multiple times i know we are...
and thank you
laura for sending me the wicked cd after you saw it..

frantic snow~

i know you all are probably tired of my snow pictures but i cannot help myself..
we have not had this much snow in a winter in a long long time....
it is so reminiscent of growing up with tons of snow putting on the winter
coats, etc and going outside to play in the snow or walking up to the golf course
to sled....man those were the days when the living was easy, lol....

so here are some more pictures from today...

snow day~

the snow started coming down probably around 630am..i let the dogs out at 53o and there was nothing coming down...by 930am all there tracks had been covered with a fresh layer of snow
and more was coming down..so i decided to throw on some warm clothes my uggs and
wrapped my co-pilot up .....and head over to work to get deliveries and change the phones that we would
be closed today and probably tomorrow and of course get some starbucks!....

so i did all that plus stopped at the post office and mailed some valentine packages

and headed back home...

i am super obsessed with getting mail everyday doesnt matter what it is

i just like to get mail...so when it snows we have to make sure the front of the mailbox is clear of snow otherwise she wont stop...

so i tried to clean it a little smoother with my SUV and this is what happened....



yes, i got stuck in the ditch right in front of my house...lol...so long story short, i phoned a good friend as julie is out of town and while waiting a nice guy stopped and offered to pull me out..how neighborly of him...so i thought you all would get a laugh out of my misadventures today...

its official we are 8inches and counting since 11am this morning and this picture was taken tonight at 830pm.....too cool for school, right?? and the snow is still falling...
we are at a level 1~snow emergency meaning use extreme caution when driving..
i am thinking we will be level 3 by morning if it keeps snowing overnight...
level 3 means
no driving unless you want to be arrested, lol....... dogs are so excited for the snow.....especially this one! look at that sweet face....

fingers crossed~


well, we are supposed to get snow dumped on us starting at 4am
by some accounts, lol...(**it started this morning at 11am, yeah)
keep my fingers crossed we will have the
same amount or close to it that some of the south had last weekend..
we still have a few patches of sporadic snow at good manor and the
dogs are praying tonight for at least 4inches....
the above pictures are from last year about this time when we werent allowed to leave the house for 24hs....
keep your fingers crossed..
