More snow in Atlanta

wow... this white powder keeps finding it's way to my house. crazy!
but this time is was just a dusting and the roads are totally clear.

Me and Cole are having an inside day today...
he's busy looking at our gorgeous snow view and I'm busy in the kitchen.

Hope you all have a fantastic day...
Thursday's are kinda my favorite night for TV... 
Grey's and Jersey Shore! Whoop!

{I love this pic... the motion of his ears when I say his name}

ps. The other day when I posted about my pink screen of death someone commented and said that we should all be on the google reader bandwagon.... that you can subscribe to over 1000 rss feeds. So, I hoped over there to try it out. and I like it, but this is what I'm wondering... If I'm reading in this view {below} and I don't click on the actual blog {correct me if I'm wrong, but I would only click on it to comment because you can see the whole post in the expanded window} does it still show that I "visited" that blog? I want to actually BE there, not just read the content without visiting, know what I mean? Who reads from the blogger view and who uses google reader? why? HELP!

I got chills....

I wish I could say it was from all the uber sweet comments yall left on yesterdays post.
yall are really too much.... super sweet ladies & gents.

The chills I've got are from this darn cold. I just.can'
sucks. been on the sofa sleepin it off for what feels like days.
I'm behind on work, behind on blogs, behind on housework.
I don't know what feels worse... 
the cold or the overwhelming sence of non-accomplishment.

That is pretty much me right now... the doritos are my form of crackers (since we don't keep crackers on hand here) nyquil, and mucinex-D, and TP.

Can I just tell yall about this TP for a second. amazing. 
It's the Cottonelle Ultra 
(purple with a dog on it, if you husband is doing the grocery shopping). 
I heart it. 
(Dear Cottonelle, send me some free stuff. Love, Pam)

OK, that's it. back to the sofa.
The giveaway from yesterdays post ends tomorrow at midnight.

Happy Wednesday Everybody!

Valentine Cupcakes & Open Letters

I'm a bit under the weather... 
nothing major. sore throat, watery eyes, sneezes.
bleh. Got some serious nap time in my immediate future.

I wanted to share these Valentines Day Heart Cupcakes that Kelly and I made last week...
super easy and super cute. Red velvet cupcakes with butter cream frosting and white chocolate tinted pink to make the hearts. Just do a random heart with a "tail" on the bottom... stick the tail into the cupcake to keep it standing upright.

(I got the idea when I saw these super cute cupcakes here....)


 and some non-related open letter business:

Dear  sweet girl who sat next to me in Photography class (Carrie Ann? ya here?):
I got your email, bbuuuutttt, when I went to find it again and reply, it is no where to be seen. sad face. I definitely want to sign up for class II (esp, since I am still a total photography ding-dong). Please email me, pamela {dot} eaton {at} 
Love, Pam

Dear blogger who likes to take all my ideas and call them your own:
Your welcome. Lovies, Pam

Dear people that I work with:
Yall are seriously the bomb {dot} com. I am so blessed to have such an amazing team and I am so thankful for each and every one of you. Thanks for making my job so easy and my smile so much brighter. You rock.
xoxo, Pam

Dear Jackson, 
So sorry that nanny is sick. I don't want to get any of these germ-ies on you, sweet man. I love you so much. Me and mommy are working on a play date, asap. 
Tutti-ta, Nanny

Dear Sam & Ronnie:
What is up with yall? Please shape up or ship out. I need more Snookie, more Pauly D, I would even take more Sitch... just to have less of your mug on this show. See ya Thursday! :)
BIG fan, Pam

Dear Summer,
I had a precious dream last night... (yall, isn't it c.r.a.z.y. how we dream about people we really don't even know) that your baby miracle came true. I think about you every day and I am so in love with the troops rallying around you guys and your adoption quest. Your strength is amazing. Love, Pam
