Five on Friday
one. Wednesday night we were all hyped up. All day there had been talk and threats of tons of snow coming our way and we were ready! Around 9pm they announced the federal government would be closed the following day so I switched off my alarm and snuggled in to bed excited to sleep in thinking I'd wake up to a more realistic 6 inches (D.C tends to freak out and expect the worse and then we only get 1 inch- it's embarrassing). Around 9 am I stirred and debated sleeping some more. I glanced at my phone and saw the text from my roommate announcing 13 inches!!
Afterwards we treated ourselves to chocolate chip cookies and cheersed to the funnest snow day since the blizzard of '96.
three. By this point we were pretty wet and cold and worn out from all the heavy lifting. We came inside and stripped off all the layers and reminisced over how as kids our moms used to make us come in through the garage and take all our wet clothes off outside and she would lay down towels so we wouldn't traipse snow through the house. Those were the days...
We spent the rest of the afternoon on the couch napping and watching Friends and the Olympics. And I also finished uploading a blog design I had done for StewMama Says. Stop by and check it out!
four. It's back to work today. We did have a 2 hour delay which was nice as it gave me time to clear off my car again after more snow fell last night. I also had time to pull together my suitcase because as much as I enjoy the pretty snow I am looking forward to a weekend out of town. I am heading to South Carolina for a sister weekend!! I can't wait to have a long weekend just us and I'm so glad that the weather sorted itself out before my flight tonight.
five. It's Valentine's Day! Now I'm not usually one to go all out for this day. I think it's fun to plan special treats and surprises and let people know you love them all year round. But I am a little sad I wont get to see TJ and tell him I love him in person. He surprised me with the sweetest package of some of my favorite things- candy, chocolate and tea and hand written mail- and I mailed him a little somethin' somethin' that was probably delayed by the weather but will hopefully tide him over until we see each other next.
Hope you all know you are loved today and everyday!
