My Snowy Day

Central Virginia had quite the snowstorm last night. It continued all day today and really transformed the town into a winter wonderland. I only went outside a few times, as the snow is really deep (they said 16 inches this morning, and that was before another full day of snow). I accidentally left my boots in the trunk of my car (why didn't I grab these while there were only a few inches of snow on the ground???), so I have only ventured outside once today for a walk. Above are a few photos from my living room window.

I had plans to go see my sister in the Nutcracker today, but when the snow really started to fall last night, all my plans were canceled. I am sad that I missed the show; luckily the tickets were shared with family friends who were able to make it.

I did get a chance to do some baking this morning. Rachael gave me the recipe to her delicious breakfast blueberry cobbler a few months ago, and I luckily had all ingredients available. It was a delicious breakfast treat for a snow day.

Holiday Baking

I've been doing a little holiday baking recently. This is my first year of completing cookie cutter cookies. Most years in the past they've turned out horribly, so I've tossed them before icing. Here are this year's results:

I only have one good photo of the snowflakes. They're Martha's sugar cookies. Needless to say, they were eaten pretty quickly.

Fa la la la la

Just downloaded "I've Got my Love to Keep me Warm" by Kay Starr on iTunes.
Go download it and do a little holiday dance.

Ready, set... go!

The holiday countdown is on. Go grab a peppermint mocha and start your decorating!
