I didn't have internet access at the time, so I tried to remember the recipe. I didn't get it exactly correct, but it's easy, cheap, and delicious, so I thought I'd share my version.
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
dissolve sugar in boiling water to make simple syrup.
add 1 packet of single drink mix flavoring (we used Hawaiian punch flavor) and stir to dissolve
cool before pouring over a cup of snow

I had an absolutely wonderful time at Blissdom. I will be sharing more throughout the coming weeks. Huge thanks to Beth at RoleMommy.com for helping make my trip a reality! You can read about some of my thoughts and adventures at RoleMommy this week - I'm going to be without internet access for much of this week, but I'll try and update the links as they go live.

Tuesday we got another six to eight inches of snow, further extending our "vacation" at mom's house. At times it was really fun, and at times I wanted to pull my hair out. It was a lesson in patience and a reminder that I have only so much control over life. There were many dishes and loads of laundry (neither of which I had to worry about, thanks mom!) and a mid snow diaper run.
Yesterday morning I was finally able to get down the drive and to the business of shoveling. A few hours and a much needed workout later I was able to turn my car around and we were in business! Last night was sweet - a quiet night in the comforts of home, sleeping in my own bed for the first time in a week. Today I'll get to baking thank you cookies to the many people that helped us out over the past few days.
What are you grateful for this week?

Things have been crazy this past week, some of it fabulously fun and amazing, and some of it just unusual and disruptive. I was able to attend Blissdom at the last minute when a waitlist ticket became available. Elise and I had a fabulous time - I hope you'll visit RoleMommy.com to read about our experience.
We returned to about eight inches of snow and a driveway that was impassable. To make a long story short, the girls and I are staying with my mom until we can dig our way back into my house. I'm longing for the comforts of home, but thankful that we have a warm place to stay and that we didn't get the real blizzard-like weather that they're getting east of us. Since we're out of our element, I imagine my computer time will be spotty at best this week.
And now on to more fun news - the winners of the Bravado and Amon Maternity giveaways... Congrats to Anissa and Marina! I will be emailing you, please reply within 48 hours to claim your prize.
I hope you are all having a great week, stay warm out there!
