We just finished our last weekend of the kid's winter break & that meant it was time to take down the Christmas decorations.  Well...most of them.  Taking the ornaments off the tree & having Bo drag it outside to chop it up left quite the mess!  Once we got that cleaned up & boxed up the ornaments, it was time to relax!  I mean, a girl can only be expected to do so much in an afternoon! ;-)


Joe Dirt 2 was on the movie menu tonight, as it was recently released by Sony Pictures.  The first one was so funny, so we wanted to see where life would take good ol' Joe Diert√©next.  PLUS...I needed to see what happens next in one of the greatest on screen love stories of all time...Joe & Brandy.  They're right up there with Fred & Wilma, Sandy & Danny, Rose & Jack, Bella & Edward, Fiona & Shrek...you catch my drift!  ;-)

We got some snacks at Walmart so I could make some White Chocolate Trash Mix.  We got a box of Orville Redenbacher Pop Up Bowl popcorn, little containers of milk chocolate & peanut M&M'S® chocolate candies and my ever beloved Coca-Cola!

Once home, I also gathered some pretzels, caramel, sprinkles & white bark coating and got to work!
