Wild Card Weekend: Beat the Snow

This past week we had a major snowstorm. It involved lots and lots of the white stuff, many hours that my husband spent driving the snowblower around the driveway, I shoveled, and the fireplace got a workout as we were bundled inside during TWO snow days.

We are firmly entrenched in winter here in Nova Scotia, and we needed a little reprieve. I consoled myself with a bit of visual inspiration:

First of all...we haven't given up hope of a vacation down the road. This picture seemed to pretty much seal the deal for me:

But that won't happen for a while. And we do enjoy summer here so we started looking in a different direction:

Yeah, that's more like it! Warm lake, sunny days, kids in the back...NICE.

The only problem with both scenarios is that they cost $$$$. More than we have at the moment. So I actually made do with something else - cheap, immediate gratification, and best of all, enjoyable RIGHT NOW:

That's right. CAKE. Butter Pecan Cake. YUM.
