Snow Day

Hello all,

It started snowing quite hard on Friday and it didn't stop until sometime in the middle of the night. So I got to wake up to this awesome blanket of snow. These picture are what I can see out of my front door. It looks kinda all smooth and perfect don't it?

I promise you that the only people I saw that were brave enough to get out in this white stuff, were the ones with SUVs. I even saw some people walking to and from the grocery store. The closest store is probably a 15-20 min walk away from the neighborhood on a good day. I telling you right now, that there was no way I was getting out in that snow and ice to walk to the store for a few items. Knowing myself as I do, I'd be that fool you'd see out there who has fallen on my face, with my groceries laying everywhere on the ground! lol..

Having lived in New York for a while, this really isn't that much snow to me. In New York we got 3-4 feet of snow....... and that was a good day! And it sucks to be you if you got the lake effect snow... So this little 3-5 inches doesn't really phase me. It was fun to watch others get out in the snow and slide down hills and whatnot. I'm also pretty sure that some kid tried to build a snowman. How do I know, you ask? Cuz that would've been me trying to scrape up every bit of snow to make the biggest snowman I could build! lol..

I know you're looking at the picture below, like 'wtf?' But do you see those four little ovals in the snow? Well, we have our own little residential bunny rabbit! He's brown, fuzzy, and sooooo cute. We saw him posted up by one of our trees for the longest and I should've taken a picture, but oh well. I was surprised that he came up on the porch and got that close to the door. That picture is actually of the door mat right in front of the door.

Alrighty then people, that is all for today. Did you have any bunny sightings? If so, let me know!

The little Things...

Hello all,
I've decided that for this new year, I'm gonna start doing all the nice little things that I've wanted to do that I've seen in tv and movies. It sounds silly, right? Well that's the point!! I will give you an example. In the movie 'Sex and the City' Sarah Jessica Parker's character is always wearing pearls while she is at home. I mean.. she was even wearing them while she had on sleep clothes, chilling at home and to go to sleep in..... Who really wears pearls with sleepwear, much less wearing pearls to bed?? No one! But how fun and fabulous would that make you feel to do that?
As you can see in the picture... I chose to have some tea one afternoon. Instead of drinking it in a plain boring mug I decided to put it in a pretty cup with a saucer and took it to another level with having some sugar in a separate container as well. None of the dishes matched, but it didn't matter to me. It made me smile and that's all that mattered to me. :)
So my question is, if you aren't already doing nice things to make you smile throughout the day, then why aren't you?
