It was 66 degrees and sunny here in Minneapolis on Wednesday. We heard a lot of chatter about a snow storm that might hit Saturday, and well, it hit hard! We woke up and the ground was already covered at 7am. 6 inches had fallen by 1:00pm! In the forecast now; 10 inches total by tomorrow morning! Being from Michigan, we are used to a lot of snow, but man, it is just colder and snowier here in Minneapolis! Definitely the worst thing about being a Minnesotan, the winters! Boo!
Alex and I had planned to go on an Adventure to the Ol' Home Depot today to start researching some of our ideas for the spare room upstairs (lots of comments and suggestions from that posting, we love all the ideas and might be landing on a decision!). This is what it looked like outside when we got there, just a blizzard! Roads and parking lots weren't plowed so it was an adventure just driving there.
Here I am, full out dorky side starting to show. There's just something about the first snow that makes me feel like a goofy, cheerful kid again. Oh, it was really fun digging out my 'wookie' boots and big down coat this morning as well... surprise!
We looked at flooring for the spare room and some paint colors. We also picked up some wood for our fireplace. Alex and I have never used the fireplace because I am scared to, but we are going to try it for the first time tonight. What am I scared of? Mainly the house burning down, the dogs getting in it, or the TV falling off the wall, and the smell, I am not a fan of fireplace smell. I will post a blog about the experience.
With all the snow, I helped make our drive home more interesting by listening to Christmas music (dorky moment #2). I captured the essence of my bizzare mood in the video below, Alex wasn't so much a fan. (I apologize for my no make-up face, not very 'high heels' of me!)
