We love snow days! Last night it snowed 6 inches of fluffy, soft snow that stuck to every tree branch and pine needle.  None of that icy, half-inch business this week.  We stayed home and enjoyed the snow day together, Will studying, me baking (what else is new :) ). Here are some of the…

for the kids

FTK! For The Kids! If you know me, you are almost certainly aware of my love for UNC Dance Marathon (now Carolina For The Kids) and the funds it raises for the Children’s Hospital.  Dance Marathon was a huge part of my college experience and especially my senior year, when I helped lead the organization….

sunday sweets: chocolate bourbon pecan pie

Just read that again.  Chocolate. Bourbon. Pecan. Pie. Doesn’t that just sound delightful, warm and comforting?  This pie is a chocolatey, toasty, gooey treat full of nuts and texture.  The combination of chocolate, bourbon and pecans melts in your mouth and warms you up from the inside (which we all need with this weather). Toasty…

Happy Friday, friends! This week has been an odd one, filled with snow, sleet, ice and frigid temperatures but also sunny skies. It’s like the weather can’t make up it’s mind.  I mean, 1 degree, I can’t even comprehend what that feels like.  When it gets below 10 degrees, there is no differentiation, it’s just cold.  I…

valentine’s day

Today I bring you an update from the Woodhouse home!  With all of the snow excitement it feels like Valentine’s Day was a long time ago, not just a few days ago.  Easter candy is already lining the shelves at the grocery store where pink boxes and conversation hearts sat on Saturday.  It’s a bit aggressive, if you…

sunday sweets: sugar cookies

Did you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day filled with flowers, love and sweets? Growing up, my mom, my sister and I went to a Valentine’s party each year with the other girls and moms in our play group.  We all dressed up in our pink and red dresses, drank tea and ate finger sandwiches and impeccably decorated…

This picture is of a bird’s nest Will and I found while on a walk in the beautiful weather this past Sunday.  RIP 60 degree Sunday, welcome 25 degree Sunday.  At least we aren’t in Boston. Here’s a look into what I’ve been reading this week: These heart-shaped tea bags are the cutest, and just in…

snow memories

A year ago this week, a winter storm hit the South.  North Carolina has a tendency to shut down at the mere mention of a flurry in the forecast, but this was a real snow-and-ice, gridlock inducing storm that was particularly bad for two reasons: the ferocious speed at which it came and the melting and…

I got a valentine in the mail from my grandmother yesterday complete with chocolate and a poem.  The poem was:  Roses are red, chocolate is edible, I hope your Heart’s Day is really incredible.  : ) In honor of the upcoming holiday, here is a nice bit of chocolatey goodness for your valentine.  These brownies…
