Let it snow!

I love snow.

There, I said it.

Now I know I don't have much authority on the matter since I live in (the usually) bright and sunny Southern California, but I did got to college in Ohio for four years and the snow days were some of my favorites. I mean how are snow ball fights and sledding on dining hall trays not the best study break ever? And how can you say that making snow angels aren't extremely giggle worthy? And how can you deny the peacefulness of a walk on a snowy night? You just can't. To any of it. Now I know that all my East Coast readers may scoff since they have to trudge through snow to work, scrape it off their windows, drive through a wintery mess, but you can't deny the magic of snow.

And why am I talking all about snow? Because I'm hopefully heading there this weekend. I say hopefully because the roads are messy and hopefully won't block our way to the mountains. But if all goes to plan me, Matt, my best friend Megan and her boy are all heading to Megan's time share in Big Bear! Megan and her boy plan on snowboarding while Matt and I simply plan on enjoying the snow, and I absolutely cannot wait. I've been listening to Harry Connick Jr.'s version of "Let it Snow" all week song, clearly I am ready :)

However, I find it funny that in all four years that I spent in Ohio, never once did I own a pair of snow boots. Yet when my dad was at Big 5 yesterday and they were having a sale, he bought me snow boots. Seriously I look like Napoleon Dynamite.

But I secretly sort of love them. For someone who wears nothing but flip flops and flats, the coziness of boots are sort of amazing.

Anyhoo, I'll be spending my day dreaming of snow and hoping I packed enough layers, I swear two years without snow I feel like a newbie all over again.

So wish us luck and pray for a snowy weekend, woo!

Hope you all have a most fabulous weekend.

happy friday!

I had my first snowball fight when I was a freshman at college. We don't do snow in Brooklyn. We do slush.

But incidentally, my senior year, I made snow angels with some friends and lost my phone in the snow. Miraculously, the phone was fine, despite being covered by snow/water. Whoo!

Julie said...

I seriously hate the snow.
But I have good reasoning. And it has to do with distractedspunk's comment.

I'm from Brooklyn... we got slush. The snow would fall and it would be messy icky slush by the time we were ready to play.

Now that I am in Boston it's even worse. You would think that by being a city in NEW ENGLAND they would know how to deal with it. But no. Things just shut down.

I'm sitting here at work waiting for a foot of the white gold to fall today. BOOOO

Yay for snow boots! I have to say, one of the best things about a snow day is being able to bundle up in the most ridiculous ensemble possible while walking around looking at other people's ridiculous ensembles. Chicago is great for that! Hope you make it to Big Bear!

Being from the East Coast
I can honestly say I couldn't
imagine not having snow.
It really is magical. I
LOVE it. (Until it gets
all muddy and messy-ew)

Your boots rock. And I
hope that you are able to
head off with Matt and your
buds for a winter wonderland
of a weekend!

I am SO sick of the snow it's not even funny!!!

Last night I can't even tell you how many times I got stuck on the road that I live on.

I need to go out shopping today, but I don't want to have to deal with the crappy roads =(

I want snow SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BAD it's not even funny.

Mandy said...

As a Buckeye who has to drive thru wintery mixers and scrape ice off the windshield I am not a big fan of the snow but have some great memories similar to yours from college. And there is something magical about it when it first falls. Have a great weekend!

Dana said...
