Snowy Weekend Recap

Monday, December 7, 2009

We had our first snow of the winter on Saturday! Nicholas woke me up at 7 (as he was leaving for the library) to show me how beautiful it was outside! I think we got like 2-4 inches of snow. I’m so excited it finally feels like winter. Here are a few pictures from early Saturday morning just after it began snowing.

Our apartment is one of five in this old house (c. 1880 I think). I know...I clearly have an obsession with pretty old restored buildings.

Obviously it was super cold outside, so I stayed in and got a lot done around the house while Nicholas spent most of the day at the library. (I think this is his last week of classes before a week and a half of finals begins!) For dinner, I made a big pot of turkey chili…perfect for a cold, snowy night and we stayed in for a 3 weeks until our wedding champagne celebration and family game night (we tried to make the Poe Cat play, but he was more interested in attacking the game pieces). We have a serious collection of board games (cool..I know) and Saturday we pulled out Clue Mysteries. Such a fun game!

Yesterday I finally finished and ordered our guestbook. I made a photo book from Creative Memories and I think it’s going to turn out really well. (Although honestly at this point I don’t really care, just as long as we have something for guests to sign!) I’ve had such a time getting the book finished because for whatever reason I couldn’t make anything look exactly how I wanted it. I think I tried like 4 or 5 different types of photo book software before finally going back to Creative Memories (where I started originally)! This is the picture I put on the cover. It’s one of my favorite engagement pictures!

Nicholas and I also bought our angel tree presents yesterday. I got two angel tree tags from Junior League; one 18 months old boy who wanted a piano (what?!) and a 2 year old boy who wanted a Go Diego Go 3-in-1 potty training set. We had absolutely no idea what we were doing! Lol I’m sure we looked crazy standing in the middle of the baby section staring at potty training stuff! I think we ended up picking out gifts that will make both little boys happy. I wrapped them when we got home and dropped them off today. I kind of want to get more…I love buying angel tree gifts!

Here’s a cute random picture of the Poe Cat!


  1. Your apartment is TDF! I love love love it! How beautiful will it be if it snows on your big day!?!

  2. Wow! Look at all that snow! I am so jealous. I'd love to see what Doak & Campbell would do.

    Brett has his final today! I am so happy he is done for the Semester. Hope Nick is almost done too! I can't believe your wedding is soooooooo soon! I can't wait.

  3. The snow is so pretty! I am just dreaming of snow since I'm in Orlando. The engagement picture is so adorable and I hope the book turns out well. Is Clue Mysteries the dvd version? I've played that one and it's so fun!

  4. The snow looks so pretty and I love the building that you live in! That is a great picture of the two of you and I love the Poe cat sitting in the J.Crew box!
