We got some snow this week. As in, a blizzard. It was crazy. We got around 18 inches of snow, with drifts of over 2 feet. It was a neat experience to see all the snow outside (with all the wind sometimes all you could see outside was white), especially knowing we were all stocked up, warm, safe, and together. Pretty great.

That being said, I want out of here. Between us being sick, the weather being cruddy, and other factors, Andrew and I have basically been stuck in the house for 3 weeks straight. I have an ultrasound appointment tomorrow afternoon. I'm not thinking I'll be able to make it. And I'm bummed. We were supposed to find out the gender of the baby, and I've really (REALLY) been looking forward to it. I'm trying to keep in mind that we will get the ultrasound eventually and that it's not that big a deal, but my pregnancy hormones are also working against me. :( But, as I said, we are safe, warm, together, and happy.

Get me out of here. :)

Here's Andrew helping me make the French bread croutes for the French Onion Soup I made for dinner yesterday. He's brushing the olive oil on the bread. And looking super cute doing it.

I made blueberry muffins for Andrew today. I thought they turned out so pretty! And he loved them.....a lot. He basically ate muffins for dinner.

And here's the French Onion soup. It. Was. Amazing. Soooo delicious!!!! And perfect for our super chilly day!
Hope you all are safe and warm, and have yummy food to eat!

I don't think you should have a problem getting to the appointment as long as Mike does hit any parked cars...

I know what you mean, we are going to try to go drive somewhere today (if at all possible) because we're going stir-crazy! That onion soup looks awesome!
