Yes, Huntsville shuts down at the slightest hint of snow and we always get guff from the northern transplants, but we don't have the road treatment infrastructure that northern states have. There really is no point and investing in salt and sand trucks when it only snows once a year. But because it snows so infrequently, some people down here drive like nimrods. I might be the most careful driver on the road, but if the goober next to me decides that it is business as usual and is fishtailing down the highway, that is dangerous for me too. They have to take into account all of the young drivers and the fact that this is a hilly area for buses, so conventional wisdom today is: Sit your happy butt at home and don't get out. As it is deadline day at the newspaper, I have no problem with that.
So in no particular order, my current five favorite things as of Friday, February 20, 2015:
Rub n Buff Sample Pack
Saturday Night Live's 40th anniversary special

I know that I say this about once a week but the media room is nearing completion. We picked out some inexpensive movie posters to adorn the walls and this one has to be my favorite. Big Kid: "These are all old movies." I told him that there is a Harry Potter poster and as he gets older and finds movies that he loves, it is really easy and not too costly to replace the posters.
I am only ten years behind everyone else but I love Prime. It is so easy and fast -- and you can find just about anything on there. Since joining in December, I have ordered makeup, bubble bath, a cross body bag, boots and dining chairs. I have gotten to where I really don't shop anywhere else.
The color green
Yes, I know this is a completely random selection but I have found myself gravitating toward green accessories lately. I realized that I have never decorated with green before and I like how it can add interest to a room full of neutrals. It looks fabulous with animal print too.
So none of these are especially earth-shattering but no one ever accused me of being cutting edge. After a day of cleaning out toys with a snowed-in family, I think that I am doing pretty good just to construct whole sentences that do not consist of, "Stop throwing things at your brother."
Happy Weekend! Stay warm and dry out there!
