10 things I learned from the Hurricane

  1. The battery on our portable DVD player only lasts for 95% of a 90 minute movie.
  2. At any given time, I have WAY too many containers of yogurt in the fridge.
  3. Underneath all those containers, my fridge shelves are kinda gross.
  4. Shelf stable organic vanilla milk is tasty on its own but sucks as a substitute for half and half in coffee.
  5. Passionfruit syrup+ home infused strawberry vodka+ rum + seltzer= a damn tasty Hurricane!
  6. Strawberry buttercream, cranberry orange, and white linen are all lovely candle scents by themselves.  All together they’re horrible.
  7. No one else wants to park under the large tree overhanging the street in front of our house either.
  8. Curly sleeps just fine without white noise, Strawberry not so much.
  9. We are willing to drive around for 30 minutes looking for somewhere to get coffee when our power is out.
  10. Couch pillow forts are ALWAYS awesome, no batteries needed!
