Mother Nature Is Confused
I think Mother Nature is confused? We've had wind chills as low as -25, tomorow the high is going to be 56 and right now it's raining and it's JANUARY!

Instead of snow boots, I had to wear my rain boots this morning. I can't remember when I've ever had to wear the polka-dotted boots during winter...very strange.

Happy Birthday Dad!
Have you ever thrown a surprise birthday party for someone? Let me tell you, it's fun, but stressful at the same time!

Today my Dad turns 60 and we had a surprise birthday party for him on Saturday. I almost had a heart attack when my sister called to say that my Dad was on his way to the house already - which meant he'd be there a half hour early!!!! Thankfully we were able to stall him and we pulled off the surprise!

Happy birthday Dad, thank you for teaching me to follow my dreams and for being my biggest cheerleader! xoxoxo

Rumchata Cupcakes!
My boss brought in the most amazing cupcakes this week at work that his wife, Katie, made!

And they were made with Rumchata, yummy! A lot of people have asked for the recipe and here's what Katie gave me:

Start with 1 box Pillsbury Dark Chocolate cake mix. Instead of 3 eggs, use 4. Instead of water, use RUMCHATA, then add the 1/3 cup oil AND throw in a cup of sour cream and a cup of dark chocolate chips. Mix it all up. Put it in a gallon ziplock bag and cut of a corner for squeezing it into the cupcake tray. (cut the hole big enough to let the chips through!) Bake for approx 18 min. at 350*.

Boo-Hoo I'm Bummed
The Packers season is over and I'm bumming. We had a great run despite some injuries and the mishap in Seattle with the replacement refs earlier in the season.
 
And as a Packers shareholder, win or lose I still love my team. Below is my buddy Sarah doing our "missing man" photo because our boy Donald Driver barely played in the playoff game against San Francisco. Not sure if he'll be back, but it was so much fun cheering for you these past few years Double D that's for sure!

Getting my Butt Kicked
Are you headed to the gym, especially with a new year getting started!

I can't say enough good things about my trainer, Lottie at The WAC downtown! She kicks my butt, that's for sure, but she's motivated me to add elements to my workout...like suspension training with TRX.

It absolutely kills, but I can tell you the payoff is well worth it!
Check out the plank I'm doing here, so hard...but you'll see great results! Good luck with those new year's resolutions! Remember, summer bodies are earned during winter :)

Plant Some Animal Resistant Bulbs this Fall
Don't let flower hungry wildlife stop you from planting spring flowering bulbs. Plant a few animal resistant bulbs in your garden this fall for added color and beauty next spring. Start off the season with a few minor bulbs. Winter aconite and snowdrops are some of the first bulbs to appear in spring. Mix grape hyacinths with daffodils to double your flower power and pop in some Siberian squills for a bit of blue in the spring garden. Try little Tommies, botanically known as Crocus tomassinanus. Garden catalogues claim and I have found them to be resistant to squirrels. Daffodils are well known for surviving hungry animals and now there are lots of new varieties to choose from. And don't forget to try some alliums you may know as ornamental onions. There are small and large flowered varieties and those that bloom in spring, summer or fall. A bit more information: Consider Camassia with blue flower spikes that resemble hyacinth, but tolerate partial shade. Snowflakes (Leucojum) Autumn crocus (Clochicum), Fritillaria and of course hyacinths are a few other animal-resistant bulbs. Southern gardeners need to select low chill varieties or use precooled bulbs if their winters are too warm for forcing spring flowering bulbs into bloom.
