My life has consisted of nothing but snow storms. No literally, one after the other.
I think we are on our 7th storm? I don't know I've lost count.
I have the worst cabin fever.
Here are few more photos of my snow-riddened town called cape cod, and oh, another blizzard
for this Saturday night!  Yes!
He's waiting on scraps from my lunch.
Seafood bisque is a plenty here on Cape Cod--thankfully. From Lindsey's Family Restaurant.

My newest favorite perfume.  Oh this scent is so heavenly.

I loved these beef jerky'ish treats from Epic Bar. Found at Whole Foods.

So I lucked out and found Zapp potato chips on Cape Cod!
Can you believe it?  Cape Cod of all places!
Newest flavor VooDoo is a mix of salt & vinegar w/ BBQ.  Oh yeah.

Yes!  Really good!  Yes!  So Delicious found at Whole Foods.

I wanted to start growing out my eyelashes.
Was told by a friend to give this Viviscal a go.  It works great as you can see in the
photo; I had ZERO eyelashes. And yes it does grow out the hair too, makes it thicker & longer.
I do recommend this, I was not paid for this, keep in mind it's pricey, but I think Amazon has
it cheapest.  Also it does upset the stomach so take with food. I take one pill every other day.

Gave this Red Ace beet shot extract a go to help boost my workouts.
“The discovery of nitric oxide and its function is one of the most important in the history of cardiovascular medicine.”Its good, I prefer pure beet juice though".
It's strong for sure and will stain anything!

I've been faithful to this beet juice after all the holiday eats.

This doesn't need ice cream, just a spoon baby.

This is a bad bad habit of mine.
It's made up of all chemicals and I love every single one of them! lol

Little footprints

Made a batch of my infamous salted nutella cookie bars

And just like that winter is here.

Lasted half hour on the ice and then fell. Game over.
