What I wore: navy and ballet flats

Remember when I said we had a really mild winter (save of course the crazy two weeks of snow and a few other freezing days here and there)?  

This is one of my favorite outfits from that.  Many thanks to hubs for entertaining the backyard photo shoots so that I can be reminded that I really do have outfits that I love.  (Helpful on days when I just want to go shopping...)

Sweet potato biscuits

Y'all.  It's March.  March.  This year is flying by.  And I am just doing a little happy dance for Spring that is coming around the corner.  Today, I'm sharing a fun little recipe that I tried recently for a treat that I love to see at parties - sweet potato biscuits.  

For this recipe, I adapted the original recipe HERE.

Snow day. Again.

HAPPY FRIDAY!  It has snowed twice this week.  We've had a pretty mild winter overall, and I feel like winter is throwing a little tantrum now that it's turn is almost over.  And frankly, I really enjoyed yesterday's snow.  We got between 4 and 5 inches of fluffy, wet, sticky we got up early, had a fun pancake breakfast, and built a snowman.

The roads were clear this morning.  Well, the main roads at least, aka the ones I needed to get around on and because it was nice and sunny, they were great by the afternoon.

And then this happened just as I was getting home from work:

And as much as I do not love winter weather, this snow was nice and fluffy and really beautiful coming down.  

And so, we've made snow cream and are staying warm next to the fire.  

Maybe it's not so terrible after all.  

Snow day

Where in the world is Thrift for Today these days?  Oh, you know, a little here a little there.  In reality though, I feel like we have been running around like crazy the last couple of weeks and I have literally just decided to go to bed once we're done with everything at night rather than turn on the computer, much less write a decent blog post.

We have been spending lots of time with family and friends on the weekends, which has been fun and wonderful.  And yesterday we had a "snow" day, which was actually a light dusting covered in a sheet of ice day so everything was closed down.  I loved the day because I had lots of time to relax.  It was so icy out, so not fun snow.  We cleared the driveway and went for a walk around the neighborhood, so there was a little productivity, I suppose.

Save this freezing cold week, we've been having pretty mild winter weather this season, so I've been able to get away with layering and scarves.

I recently found this neutral animal print tee on a clearance rack and it has been the perfect tee to layer with this long brown cardigan.  Because let's be honest, I love a good long cardigan.
