A Snowy Southern Twenty-Five on Friday!

It has snowed three straight days this week and I'm not kidding when I tell you that I loved every single minute of it.

Well except for when I was stuck in meetings at work and didn't have a clear view out the window. I got caught more than once leaning back in my chair to catch a glimpse of it out of a window in a room across the hall. I didn't love missing the snow then!

But this week has gone by soooo fast thanks to all of the snow adventures & it's already Friday. Time for some Friday five with April, Darci, Natashaand Christina!

This week's 5 on Friday had a special picture request so...

The snow this week meant that I got to wear my boots again! I've finally broken them in enough this winter where they are finally incredibly comfortable to wear around everywhere.

I'd like to say that I got a lot done around my apartment while being snowed in this week but uh... there are dirty dishes in the sink and my laundry from last week is still hanging out in my dryer. Whatever. I thoroughly enjoyed reading, taking naps, watching the Winter Olympics, staring out the window at all the snow coming down, taking pictures, and making a snow video for my best friend. I even got up, showered, put in my contacts, put on make up, and put on real clothes yesterday. And then proceeded to fall asleep on the couch as soon as I was done getting ready.

The highlight of my day might have been late yesterday afternoon when I went outside to try to dig my car out a little bit while the snow was melting and hadn't refrozen yet. It was fun to get outside and wage war against the snow on my car... not quite Lorelei snow rant worthy because I thoroughly enjoyed the snow, but the same effort was there. But anyway, after I dug my car out of the snow somewhat, I decided to go explore the outside world and walk around on the roads by my apartment complex. It was quiet, peaceful, and the sunset was amazing last night.

Oh! & HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY. Thanks to the snow, my cards will not make it to their recipients in time and I'll probably be stuck at home this weekend. Have I mentioned that this is the third year out of five that it has snowed on Valentine's Day weekend?

2010 in Clemson.
2013 in Charlotte.

Because it is Valentine's Day, I'll end this post with a little Chuck & Blair... because, let's be honest. How can you not be completely in love with them?
