Snowed In

I'm sure you've heard by now but the Midwest is knee deep in snow and getting blown every which way but warm.

Last night I convinced Jus to walk me through the blizzard to CVS so I could get dessert.

I'm pretty lucky that my wonderful husband is willing to walk his jammie clad through the snow to buy me microwavable brownies

Today we've got the day off, and we're celebrating by sleeping in, working on the stairway and snuggling in an effort to stay warm.

I thought I'd celebrate our snow day with you too! So in honor of our snow day I present you with...


A couple of months before our wedding I searched Etsy for the perfect clutches to give my bridesmaids. I wanted to find an adorable clutch that BFF Beth & Banan could use again and that I could stuff with goodies.
Luckily I stumbled upon Murwati.

With beautiful bags like this there was no way I could pass them up. And luckily for you Murwati kindly offered one of her beautiful wristlets for you!

Up for grabs is one of Murwati's Fairy Tale Wristlets in dark brown.

Happy Snow Day! Your hubs is awfully sweet to go with you. We made brownies too! Even with only two of us they're about gone. There's just something about chocolate and snow...

My favorite snow day activity is watching a movie with my hubby, snuggling, and drinking a nice big mug of hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps. :)

Oh my lord. First, yes, you did have a snow day (see email.)

Second, in fifteen short hours you have EIGHTY entries. Amazing.

Third, on snow days I just love hot chocolate, 80s movies and not showering at all.

Stay warm!

Micaela said...

my favorite snow day activity is to start the fire place and make some easy bread in the oven because there's nothing like the smell of warm bread on a cold day.

luckily, i have "beer bread" down pat (it's SO EASY!) that the day of the worse of the winterstorm, i woke up early to surprise our neighbors (also newlyweds!) with some :)

My favorite snow day activity is kind of layered. I love (A) doing a craft project, like the doily chandelier I am currently making, (B) baking something yummy for my poor husband who had to go to work to come home to, and (C) watching a whole bunch of chick flicks. If the hubs is home, I love to snuggle and read.

unfortunately we don't have snow where I live in Australia, but then again perhaps it is fortunate that we don't or I'd spend all of my time ice-skating and making snow angels!
