snow day

i haven't had a snow day since i was in college. which really wasn't a snow day...i just decided to skip classes if i didn't feel like walking in the snow. but, as i am sure you have heard, the south got dumped on this week and i have had 3 snow days from work. that's right - i wake up in the morning to check my email and get all excited when i see "office closed today". it's just like when you were in high school and you wake up to watch the school closing run across the bottom of the tv. 3 snow days from work. i mean how fabulous is that?

this means that i have been doing a whole lot of nothing. i haven't changed out of my pjs. i keep them on all day. i mean - it really is a treat. i have watched tv, cleaned my apartment (some), played with K and caught up on my blog reading. 

speaking of K - somebody is obsessed with the snow. OBSESSED people. i have seen my puppy throw tantrums because i don't let him go outside to run in the snow for hours on end. how i wish i had a backyard!

so i will leave you with my absolute favorite one of K in the snow...

happy snow days my friends :)

a white sand christmas

while my christmas was quite unfortunate and uneventful (i got pretty sick over the holiday), it was still great. great because i got to spend time in florida with my family. and although i am 25 years old, it feels pretty nice to have your mama around when you don't feel good.

even though i was under the weather and mostly in bed, it was nice to have a christmas that looked like this...

i hope y'all had a very merry christmas and celebrated with joy.

hello dear readers! well, i teased you with a little picture and then left you hanging. if you read any of my besties blogs you definitely read a little bit about the big engagement party {here, here, here or here}. but from the bride to be's perspective, i can honestly say it was the most perfect day.

after leaving work a little early, A and i began the trip up to lexington. we stopped up at windy gap (the younglife camp that we met and where we work a few weekends a year). i was under the impression we were stopping to visit a dear friend. while that was true, we were also stopping so A could pop the question. WG has a little island with a big old willow tree and a wooden bench. surrounded by a winter wonderland, A got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. it was so great. i couldn't have been more excited.

moving along - we got back in the car for the 4 hour trek up to lexington. i was so very antsy to get there, as one can imagine. we ended up getting to lexington at about 10:30pm. upon walking into jen's house, i was greeted by all of my loved ones. a handful of dear friends and my mom and sister (dad couldn't make it) were all there for a surprise engagement party. it couldn't have been more perfect and i couldn't have been anymore surprised.

i'll let the pictures do the talking.

the most perfect engagement story ever. :)
