Thankfully I was able to make it to work this morning! The roads were not yet plowed and there were a few dicey spots, but here I am. I knew it was going to snow today, however the earlier weather reports from yesterday predicted the snow to start this afternoon. Needless to say, Alex and I were surprised when we woke up and this was our view.

Snowy Backyard

 

Alex is at home today. He’s waiting for our furniture delivery and for Comcast to come by to hook up our cable and internet. While I was getting ready to leave for work, Alex was busy shoveling the driveway so I could get out. Isn’t he just the best??!

Check him out!

In case you didn’t know, Hunter is definitely a snow dog. He ran around like a mad man while his daddy shoveled.

Chompin' down on some snow

Love me some snow!

Considering this is our first snow at our new house, we decided to snap an early morning photo.

Don't judge us

It was snowing so hard that even as I entered the garage to go back inside my hair was completely covered in the chilly, white puffs.

Yes.. I'm silly, I know.

As I mentioned earlier, the roads weren’t clear by the time I left for work. My drive to work looked something like this…

Creeping along

Once I got to work I realized that quite a few people decided to stay home and not brave the weather. Not only does this make me seriously jealous, but it also makes it much busier at work than normal. Hopefully the day zooms by and before I know it I’m at home checking out our new furniture!

And if it wasn’t bad enough, Alex continually sends me cute pictures of Hunter all day long. Don’t get me wrong — I love seeing pictures of my boy all day, but it makes me wish I was home even more! Check out a couple of them…

"I've been watching you Dad..."

Have a good one!
