Well, that preview of spring weather was short lived. I woke up this morning to a blanket of snow on the ground. Quite a change from the balmy 60° afternoons we had the past few days. Oh, well. I knew it couldn’t last, and I do love snow! Plus, it won’t be long until I’m in sunny Florida.
I’ve been working ahead on blog posts for this week because I know I’ll need time to plan the outfits I want to shoot in Florida, plus all of the things we women like to do before going to a warm weather destination in the middle of winter.
I scheduled a mani/pedi and a spray tan, and I already had an appointment for a glycolic peel on the books, so I should be glowing by the time I get to the Sunshine State! All such superficial things, but I’ll be glad I made the effort when it’s time to don sandals and sleeveless tops and take pictures.
Snow or no snow, this week on the blog is going to be all about spring trends! I’m super excited; I always enjoy putting these posts together. I’ve been doing a lot of research, and it’s definitely going to be an interesting year for fashion. Everyone is ready to come out of hibernation and start living again, and that’s very evident in the trends this season.
We’ve had a full weekend. The kids were all busy yesterday so Paul and I took advantage of having the day to ourselves. We both worked a few hours in the morning and then went on a long walk to enjoy the gorgeous weather we were having. I needed to run into the mall for a few things, so he tagged along, and then we went out to dinner and called it Valentine’s Day.
And just like the last time we had dinner plans, I wore my Paige Lia booties to tromp around the mall and changed into pumps before we got to the restaurant. I definitely felt a tad overdressed at the mall, but I got a lot of compliments!
I’m not sure if we’ll be able to get to church today or not. The snow is still falling, but it doesn’t seem to be accumulating very quickly, and the ground is so warm from the past few days so the roads probably aren’t too bad. It might just be slush.
And I suppose the Super Bowl is this afternoon! I almost forgot. We don’t have a team in the game, so it hasn’t been a topic of conversation around here, but I’m sure my men will be watching. I don’t even know who is performing at halftime. I lost interest in the halftime show years ago, and the commercials aren’t even funny anymore.
I guess I’ll use the opportunity to make Buffalo Chicken Dip and read my book. There’s something I find quite comforting about reading on a Sunday afternoon with the background noise of a football game on the TV.
I ordered Warsaw Orphan after finishing up The Things We Cannot Say. I also told my daughter I’d reread To Kill A Mockingbird since she’s reading it for school, and that just came in. I’m not usually one to read two books at once, but I already started Warsaw Orphan and I’m into it, so I’ll see if I can manage two.
So yeah, that’s about all I’ve got for today. I’m off to brew a second cup of coffee and see what the roads are like. I hope have a restful and relaxing Super Bowl Sunday, and may the best team win!
