and i thought i left the days of playing in the snow in chicago.

 sweater: f21 / tank: HM / hat: f21 / jeans: aeropostle / boots: madison 
nailpolish: OPI wiliam tellme about /gloves: gift from sandy from CHWH swap


and who would have thunk?! not just little, cute snowflakes. BIG chunks of snowflakes with inches of snow accumulating on the ground. and now i wish i brought my big, sleeping bag coat - the one i used back in chicago all the time. i did not expect it to get this cold here in atlanta!

soooo much snow! well, not really (compared to chicago snow) - but it's definitely a lot for the south! we got about 5 inches over here, and ryan said where he's at, it's more like 7 inches! the crazy thing about it too is the layer of ice that froze on the snow so it's not exactly the kind of snow you want to roll around in or make snowballs with. look at the size of the chunk of ice in my hand! it is still fun to stomp your foot in it though to break the ice!

welp, the weekend is almost here, folks! 
do you got big things planned? 

even though we've been stuck inside for most of the week, the fam and i are having a blast being together here in ATL. we've had some funny moments - and even a little scary one when the car got stuck in the snow (eek!) but we still make it a good time when we're together. they'll be heading back but i'll be chilling here to spend some time with (my) Ryan and his family! can't wait - it's been too long! 

so sayonara for now! 

i'll see you all after the weekend so that i can spend some good time 
with the fam and with my man. 

much love.
[happy weekend, friend.]

    Yay for snow (I think). I love looking at it but I hate being in it.

  3. I love snow! I'm so jealous! Glad you get to enjoy it again!

    PS. I'm going to be perusing your blog for winter outfit ideas for my trip home. For example, love the tank top over the long sleeve shirt thing. I used to do that all the time and have forgotten how to dress for winter!
