Snow Days! (aka Blizzaster 2011)

After being ridiculously jealous of the snow days my family and friends on the East Coast have been enjoying this winter, the midwest (and most of America) has gotten slammed with a serious storm. I have scored myself not 1 but 2 snow days this week. February is off to a fabulous start. I am basking in the winter wonderlandy-ness of it all!

I did a whole lot of relaxing, and then eventually got off the sofa to fill our home with yummy smells.

I made my Grandma's Banana Nut Cake and threw in some chocolate chips to make it extra yummy. Our place smelled heavenly all afternoon.

Today, this lovely box is keeping me super busy. I'm somewhat horrified that it's taken us this long to delve into our wedding thank you notes, but I was set on using a wedding photo. We received our disc last week, I ordered our notes immediately, and now I'm getting the job done!

Also, it's a perfect time to read and sort through our massive stack of magazines by the front door...

maybe I'll hit a yoga class

...but for now I can't resist being curled up with my kindle. Just for a few more minutes.

If you're wondering exactly what our storm looked like, here's some very high quality documentation:

(What you can't hear me say is, "Oh there comes the wind. That'll getcha." No idea why I sound like I'm from Minnesota.)

Did you have a snow day? How are you enjoying it?
P.S. Mr. Fix-It is stranded in Maine. Here's hoping I see him soon!


  1. I live in Maine, and I don't think the airports will be open anytime soon! Sorry!

  2. Baking and reading sound like a fantastic plan! We didn't get any snow around my area though, enjoy being bundled up while you can. :)

  3. I spy with my little eye...our Christmas card! :)
