As many of you know, I came home Monday night from New York. I got numerous texts while on my trip about all of the snow we got, but I got out of the airport, I had no idea! There were just PILES of snow everywhere and the roads were still a bit iced up. We got around 10 inches total! Some of you northerners may be rolling your eyes, but seriously, this happens about once every 10 years here. I can't believe I missed the snow! It was almost melted by the time I got to enjoy it. While bringing my luggage inside from the car, Pat asked if I wanted to have a snowball fight since he didn't have one all weekend. We didn't have gloves on, and he didn't have a coat on, so it was a one-snowball-snowball-fight. Fun stuff!
These pictures were taken Tuesday afternoon.. almost all of the snow is melted now. I absolutely love how these turned out. I'm glad I wore darker shades, I think they make a nice contrast to the snow! While in NYC, my ONE big request was to go to Buffalo Exchange! Man, let me say.. I made out there! I had some amazing finds (cough, Marc Jacobs dress for $22..) and this Kensie Girl coat was one of them! It's velvet and the bell sleeves add almost a Victorian feel to the outfit. The dress is from my clothes swap with Tieka of Selective Potential.. and gosh, it fits like a dream! Where did you get this, Tieka?! I must find one!
Tomorrow, we are headed to Charlottesville for the shows I've been talking about FOREVER: Amos Lee & Iron & Wine! My two favorite artists, two nights a row, in one of my favorite cities. The catch: It's supposed to snow. A lot. Like, 20 inches. Awesome. I just pray that they don't get canceled! Luckily, Amos is coming to the Norva in Norfolk in March, but Iron & Wine has no other plans close! Pray, pray, pray, and do the no-snow-dance for me, PLEASE!
Thank you for all of your responses to my last post about the apartment plans! Everyone was so supportive and I was really surprised that so many of you lived together before marriage! I guess it's because I don't really personally know too many people who choose to do that. It's important to both of us and times will be tough, we are very aware of this, especially financially. However, I think that we will grow from it and having the learning experience together will bond us even more. We won't be able to live like we do now, the budget will be tight, but we've weighed the pros and cons and we are super excited about our choice!
