Snow?

Really??? I can't even believe it snowed today. Where did that come from?! Of course, it didn't last long and it didn't come close to "sticking," but there were a couple of times today where actual snowflakes fell. I liked it. It was a sweet little encouragement to me that there are beautiful things that come even when it's miserably cold and blah out. My definition of miserably cold is pretty wimpy. But still, I don't much enjoy it. It makes me want to do nothing but curl up in a ball. Then I don't want to exist in any way apart from my little cozy ball. Seriously, I'm typically a go-er. (Great word.) It's pretty rare for me to just want to be still. But on cold winter days, I'm so content to stay inside. Too bad staying inside makes everyone that has to be around me want to go crazy. But today I'm sort of embracing life in my little ball. I don't plan to leave the house at all. For as long as I can hole up in here, I'm gonna. We'll eat frito pie for dinner, because that's just what you do on a day that has snow. At least, that's what we do. And after Jonah goes to bed, I'm going to sit on the couch in comfy lounge pants with lots of blankets, eating too much chips and guacamole, and watch a yet-to-be-determined movie with my husband. Surprisingly, it all sounds so very dreamy!

Here's a question for you mommies...I was looking online at nursing covers, and I'm curious as to what kind/brand is best. With Jonah, I just went with the whole use-a-blanket-to-cover plan when I was somewhere I needed to nurse more discreetly. But after an embarrassing flashing incident on an airplane, I'm pretty much ok with abandoning that method now. I'm wanting a nursing cover to use with Parker. And a really cute one at that! If you have one or know anything about which brands are best, I'd love to know! I would appreciate all the help I can get. I know nothing about them. Target has the following brands: Cover in Style Nursing Cover by Hooter Hiders, Peanut Shell, and Lait de Taule Nursing Cover. And then there's the official Hooter Hiders/Bebe au Lait brand that I think Elisabeth Hasselbeck recommended. And since I do think of her in a BFF-sort of way, I'd like to listen to her on this. But I'm really clueless as to what's the best here and figured I ought to do some research. So, help please!

Oh I really like the one on the website it is really pretty. I figure if you are going to spend 29 at target you may as well spend the 35 and get the real thing and a prettier fabric! CUTE!

I would go with the Hooter Hiders because you can't go wrong if it's named that! :-) I talked to Chandra and told her that in a few months we must all meet in Tyler, so we can love on Baby Lilly and go shopping in Canton!

I had one from Modestmommies.com and I loved it. I used it all the time. I think they are about $30. You should check them out online and see if they have one you like. Great quality product!
