A Bad Blogger I have been!

I have to opologize for not keeping up with my blog. This year has felt so hectic at school, I'm not sure what my deal is. I have definitely been able to find time to read my favorite blogs and shop with some of my favorite etsy shops but can't keep my own going...must be my priorities huh?
April made these darling posies for me, aren't they the cutest! And I love this card cozy that Shelly made for me, I actually use it to hold a small notepad and calendar for meetings at school. April & Shelly are both talented gals, you need to check out their etsy shops when you get a chance!

Has anyone ever heard of a Twinkie Cake? I hadn't so when I ran across this easy dessert, I just had to try it out. I made it yesterday and everyone seemed to like it so I will definitely make it AGAIN!

Back in January, we here hit with a major ice storm here in NE Oklahoma...we were without power for 11 days! I thought I was going to go nuts. This photo below was of my parents' house, the pole itself fell on their house. I have never seen so many branches and limbs that fell off of the trees around here. May I add, that I am still picking up branches in our yard as we speak.

It's hard to tell in this picture but this is actually the road to our house. The trees and branches were so heavy with ice that they just folded into the road, a nice neighbor had to use a chainsaw to clear the limbs out.
So needless to say, once the power got restored...I was so appreciative to be able to flip the light switch and have it come on!
It has been snowing here today, where in the world is spring!!!

Hey Karen! Thanks for stopping by my place and nice to meet you. :) I love your posies and um, that Twinkie cake I MUST try!! I have never heard of it before but it kinda sounds like a strawberry shortcake but with that luscious cream. Yum! That ice storm looks terrible. I don't know how you could go without power for that long. Hope that kind of weather has passed. We just have rain now here in Portland. :) Hope you had a great weekend!
