A Beautiful Sight, We’re Happy Tonight (Walking in a Winter Wonderland)

ONE //  I had hockey practice Friday night, and I ended up coaching, which was kind of stressful and fun at the same time.But it wasn’t as much exercise as I had hoped for.

TWO //  Saturday I decided to get in the winter spirit and wear some plaid out shopping.

THREE //  Got a little crafty Saturday night. I saw these mugs, and had to recreate my own version. They turned out quite well. A friend may or may not be getting them for Christmas.

FOUR //  Woke up to this terrible sight on Sunday morning afternoon.

FIVE //  Had to get all dressed up to tackle that snow. And yes I do own the jacket that matches those bright orange pants. What can I say, I was 22, feeling a bit wild, and wanted to make sure I didn’t get lost snowboarding down the mountain.

SIX //  Don’t let that pretty white stuff fool you. It is a nuisance. It may look light an magical, but believe me its a lot of work to shovel, especially when you have a five car driveway to keep clear. So I did what any mature adult would do, I laid in the snowbank and took a break.

SEVEN //  And then I warmed up with hot chocolate and marshmallows, le duh.

EIGHT // For some odd reason I was in the mood to clean, perhaps its because I can’t put out my Christmas decorations until the house work is done. And I made my bed for the first time in like a month, sorry Mom. And then I tossed on a red pillow to add a little holiday flair.

NINE //  I couldn’t help but break my own December 1st decorating rule. I had to put up at least one decoration because the winter wonderland outside put me in the Christmas mood.

What kind of shenanigans did you get into this weekend? Link-up with Sami and share!

Winter “Wonderland”

I live in what apparently is the snow capital of Canada. Yesterday when I went to work we had zero flakes of the evil white stuff on the ground, but by this morning there was far too much of it lying around.

People, I am a morning person. There is nothing I hate more than getting up early, except for getting up early to shovel snow. This season has come far too fast as I was praying for at least another two weeks of “sleeping in.” And of course this would happen now, cause I sold my old snowblower since my dad bought me a new one (yes, I’m spoiled) but he hasn’t had a chance to bring it to me yet.

There are only two perks to shoveling snow:

One. Shoveling is exercise and definitely helps towards “Operation Not Be Chunky for Christmas” which I’ll be talking all about on Sunday for Sarah’s link-up.

Two. I get to rock my favorite winter hat. Hey, we gotta find the positive in things right??

Has winter struck your town yet??
