Snowy Snaps

The past few days have felt very similar to when Hurricane Sandy visited Boston. Everyone in town was stocking up on bread, water, and cookies (or was that one just me?). Luckily, just like Sandy, Nemo didn’t wipe out our power or anything. We don’t have a car here, so digging out wasn’t a big issue either. And thank you MBTA for getting the public transit running so well today! I kind of tried to downplay the hype in my mind because being from Colorado, it feels like everyone freaks out a little more here. I can’t imagine schools being closed days in advance or driving bans put in place! Every channel we have was reporting on snow and only snow all day (we only have like 4 channels, but still). They were pretty darn accurate with the predictions though! We ventured out on Saturday after it finally stopped snowing to snap some pics and check out the aftermath. City snow storms sure are different from the suburban storms I’m used to. I can understand the freak-outs a little more now! No garages to hide your car in around here! It was so weird to walk around the quiet streets. It was also fun to be surrounded by other curious wanderers, families heading to sledding hills, and dedicated car owners already digging their spots out. It seems like most people made the best of it and had a nice time with friends and neighbors. Of course, today was a bit of a different story. Slush, sidewalk mazes, and rain…yes, rain! Such a ‘well at least it’s not raining’/dark cloud moment.

Insta What?

20130210-141839.jpgI don’t usually have such a hard time coming up with post titles. It’s hard for me to even start writing a post if I haven’t come up with a title first. This is an Instagram post…there are lots of ways “Insta” can play into a title phrase. Too many. I like rhyming, I like alliteration, I like cheesy. So many opportunities, but none of them seem original. What do you think? If you were titling this post, what would you choose?? I would love to know!

It’s been a week mostly dedicated to organizing, preparing for a blizzard, and using said blizzard as an excuse to eat like a child. I was pretty busy the first half of the week with school/work things. The weekend has been very slow and relaxing, which I don’t mind at all! I’ll be continuing the laziness by watching the Grammy’s, snacking all day, and possibly tending to my hair…Have a good night!20130210-141854.jpgAw, she is getting so big! Do any of you remember her from my New Year post?? She’s not mine, but I take her and her sister for walks every week. They give me a good dose of Golden Retriever while I’m away from home! 20130210-141913.jpgWhen you don’t have to worry about driving/digging out your car, a storm is just a good excuse to lounge and eat junk food. 20130210-141921.jpgGood morning, Nemo.

Merry Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! I finished wrapping presents not too long ago. When I emerged from the super secret wrapping room I looked out the window to see, SNOW! Looks like we’ll have a white Christmas after all. It’s so pretty already. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas morning. I can’t believe it will be here in just a few short hours. I’m looking forward to a full nights rest tonight and a cozy, relaxing day tomorrow!
