{snowpocalypse 2011}

so it didn't turn out to be quite the snopocalypse that the
weather forecasters were calling for, but there is a lot of snow nevertheless,
and it is still coming down. and it is most certainly enough to warrant for a
SNOW DAY!!!

{view from our porch}
hubby and i went for a long walk this morning with magglio, and it was magical.
so serene and peaceful.  it's days like these that i actually savor winter :)
and magglio was loving his life, pouncing around in the fluffy snow.




{i have never seen main street so quiet! probably half of the businesses are closed. so beautiful.}

{can not get over how enormous this mound of snow is!}

on an unrelated {but awesome} note, the lovely sandy is hosting a giveaway for me today over on her blog, sandy a la mode. up for grabs? a ruffle necklace in the winner's choice of color :) enter here. and grab her coupon code to receive 20% off in my shop!

we got about 9-11 inches here. today is the first day that the wind isn't blowing everything around and the sun is out, but it's like 9 degrees outside. crazy. i can't believe how many states this storm hit. enjoy your snow day! we're on day 2 and may go into 3!! and, my beagle hates the snow but my pug goes nuts. i need to get pictures.

Yay for snow days!

Moody is closed down for the snow, but most people are still going to the Founder's Week conference anyway. Being from Indiana, I love snow days, and I love seeing most of Chicago just shut down. :) Of course, this happens what, once every fifty years?

I wish it would just hurry up and snow here. I am tired for this 9 degrees and no snow business.
