    Hi Angie! How I miss the snow and would love to be snowed in once in a while (not much chance of it happening here in the UK:( I am sure you aren’t too upset about not being snowed in as white winters are a norm in your country (or are you in California?). Feeling super excited to find out the results of the Challenge!

    • Angie says:

      Oh, no, not upset at all! I hate shoveling snow! Our neighbor has a snow blower and he sometimes comes over and help but there are places snow blowers can’t get into ? I’m in NJ and we get enough snow but this year’s been pretty mild. I’ll get to the results as soon as I come home from work!

  2. Your husband is absolutely right! How do the meteorologists get away with it?? It’s been the same here…! Anyway, I’m glad you didn’t have to suffer any horrendous conditions xx

  3. Glad you had a day off to relax! It certainly is not an exact science.

    • Angie says:

      That’s true and that’s why it’s called a forecast ? But they’re way off too many times! And they delivered their prediction with such authority… Our European model indicates there’s pressure building up blah blah… lol

  4. Well we had about 13in or so I think – not as huge amounts as we have had in the past but enough to make getting around trickier! With the wind, it was probably as well we were off yesterday. We’re back to school today but some towns nearby aren’t, I guess maybe they have more hills that the buses can’t do until they are properly cleared maybe. Who knows, one snow day was enough for me (kids go stir crazy!). Today is sunny but so cold, it’s a shame as my eldest really wants to go sledding and not sure we’ll be able.
    Looking forward to seeing the results of the challenge, how exciting!

    • Angie says:

      13in is a lot! We had maybe about 4in but most didn’t even stick to the ground, just on the lawn and deck etc so I suppose we got lucky. I hope you get to go sledding even if for a little bit. I’ll be working on the results tonight! ?

    Yay! Thank you so much for featuring my soup. ?? And your daughter is indeed brilliant for her suggestion. ??Happy FF, Angie, and thanks for the party. ?

    Oh how I wish the meteorologists were wrong in our area!! They had predicted huge snow storms, freezing rain, more snow, and more freezing temperatures. And we got them all!! I haven’t been able to get my car out of the garage for a week and when we went to try last night, we found that the snow ploughs had deposited 3 feet of snow and ice at the entrance and exit of the lane ways!! I am done with snow, ice and shovelling! I have never been more ready for springtime!

  7. Hi Angie! I’m glad you didn’t get snowed in! We’ve had “snow” (more like dust, really) a little here and there but nothing noteworthy lol. I keep my fingers crossed and hope that snow will magically fall and pile up so I get a snow day but I know it’s not cold enough for that?

    • Angie says:

      I don’t mind a little snow actually. It’s pretty when it’s clean and white out there. But I don’t want to be shoveling! And I definitely don’t enjoy the cold! Can we have a warm, sunny, snowy day?! ?

  8. Andy Oldham says:

    I should have been a meteorologist. I’m good at being wrong, just ask my wife 🙂 Love all these wonderful recipes!

  9. I kept thinking the forecast would be wrong, but I am snowbound with my kids! Woo hoo! Snow Day(s)! We are doing well considering it’s our second day now…. Baking, lots of piano/cello- and oboe practice. 🙂 They made their Valentines too. Don’t worry- they are also face-timing their friends. 🙂 It’s nice to have a little break from the usual routine.

    • Angie says:

      We had a year like that. The snow came up a couple of feet against the door so when we opened it there was a wall of snow in front of us. Schools were closed for days. I remember we felt cozy in the house actually, lots of hot chocolate. I imagine you were all feeling the same way ?

  10. Antonia says:

    It seems like the more they play up an event, the less likely it is to happen. It sounds like it gave you a relaxing day though! Yummy features this week 😀 Enjoy your weekend!

  11. Glad to hear you got a day off! It’s nice to have a day to catch your breath, isn’t it? I was hoping we’d get enough snow for cross-country skiing, but only a dusting fell. In any case, I hope your weekend is a great one! -Julia

    • Angie says:

      I guess by the time it reached you, there wasn’t much snow left. I heard up north was pretty bad. Oh well at least we didn’t have to shovel ? Have a great week ahead!

  12. It’s 5:00 am and I’m reading your blog – hungrily! Everything looks so tasty! ?

  13. What wonderful picks! That bread pudding is going to haunt me! But a scoring guide rubric? I know how to make it all so much easier…just pick me, lol! Just kidding, but then maybe not!! 🙂 Have a great day, Angie!

    • Angie says:

      Lol, you never know… Didn’t have any chance to look at that rubric at all! Turning out to be a busy weekend!! All revolving around high school semi coming up, omg. You know, you gotta find that perfect dress and shoes. I’ve been dragged to multiple malls. Still going to more stores today!

    hi Angie
    Not much snow here at all, apparently it snows where we live about every 5-6 years and this is not one of them but I did see a few snow flakes 🙂
    Another brilliant party, lovely features and I love how it seems to be growing! 🙂

    • Angie says:

      That would be okay with me ?? Though I prefer snow than rain. But really I want sun all the time! ?

      • petra08 says:

        I was day dreaming before about sunshine and warm weather, it seems very far away at the moment! Snow here is a complicated thing, nothing works and it is just chaos! But despite the grey weather the beach is still beautiful for walks and it is nice to snuggle up with the dogs on the sofa and just hang out! 🙂 x

        • Angie says:

          That’s my favorite thing to do! Snuggle up with my puppy, or daughter when she lets me ? and just hang out. And if I live close to the beach, my next favorite thing would be to go for long walks and look for shells! You’re so lucky! ?

        • petra08 says:

          I mainly pick oyster shells for the front garden but I love the beach and the feeling of space and fresh air! Always a treat and especially after having been to London no matter how lovely it is to go there 🙂

    • Angie says:

      And thanks for cohosting! ?

  15. tidiousted says:

    Why do I get a message telling me my images are to big when they are the same size they have always been and are jpg’s as they have always been 🙂

    • Angie says:

      It may be InLinkz changing things around. I’m afraid I don’t have control over that. Try linking again and see what happens. It did happen to me once and I just used a different image and it worked. Btw, when they say size it doesn’t necessarily mean dimensions. It can mean the number of pixels.

    Hi Angie,

    Miss being snowed in sometimes; (used to live in Denver!!!); perfect choices for this week’s features… especially the raccoon cupcakes :D. Love the collection as always.
