Snow, snow, go away

Well.  Just got dug out from 8-10 inches of fresh snow.  I swear you guys.  I said it yesterday, I choose to live in a cold, snowy state, but seriously.  Adding insult to injury - it had rained before it snowed, so my car was not only full of snow this morning but it also had a nice sheen of ice on it too.  And the locks were frozen.  Sweet.  I had been sent home from work early yesterday, but knew my boss would be gone today and hadn't approved us coming in late or working from home, so I really needed to get out.  Pants Monkey to the rescue - he helped bust open my car and shoveled me out of the driveway.  He's my hero.

I saw so many stupid people this morning.  Yep.  I am not mincing words here - they seriously were just being stupid.  I was cut off by a guy in a big F150 style truck who DID NOT CLEAN OFF HIS WINDSHIELD.  Big pet peeve - it's so dangerous to do that.  I honked at him of course.  He proceeded to drive like an idiot and I thankfully lost him about a block from my parents house.  I also avoided a near miss with TWO trucks with plows that were doing people's driveways and backing up without looking behind them.  Sigh.  You stay classy Minnesota.

Sweater - Mossimo, Target
Jeans - Gap, thrifted
Hat and scarf - Target

So anyway, I made it to my parents house in one piece, fed my child, got back out the door and was only about ten minutes late to work.  It could be worse.  And now it's cold again - but it's Friday, so a good excuse to wear a hat and cover up my shaggy horrible hair.  It most definitely will be getting chopped later today so it's all clean for Oliver's baptism this weekend.  I'm also relieved the storm hit yesterday and not Saturday into Sunday - that would have been worse!  I hope you all have great weekends - and maybe better weather than me if you don't live in Minnesota!


  1. People drive like idiots here too whenever it snows! You look cute and cozy in your hat! Hope you have a great weekend :)

  2. So glad you made it in safe and sound! You look adorable in that hat!!

  3. This has definitely been a challenging winter! Glad to hear you made it work safely this morning. Looking forward to seeing photos from Oliver's baptism!

  4. Stay safe lovely! Loving the matching hat and scarf and glad you wrapped up warm. Snow can be v dangerous! X

  5. Oh man, I swear extreme weather just makes the terrible drivers stand out more.

    On the plus, you are looking adorable! I really like the matching hat and scarf.

  6. Gosh that snow sounds appalling ... you look very cute and cosy though:)

  7. OH no! We definitely did not get THAT storm! We got the cold weather (cold enough to cancel date night last night). But you look utterly adorable. You look so long and lean, and most importantly, relaxed and comfortable with you in this outfit.

  8. You look so cute! Snazzy pieces, perfectly assembled. With sassy poses. You're back in the bloggin' game, Beth!

    Oh, and we don't have any bad drivers here in New York. No, sirree, none at all...

  9. Yuck! I am so over this weekend. I know you chose to live there, but I'm so sorry to hear that you guys got slammed with that much more snow. I hope everything went well for Oliver's baptism!



Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
