Surprise Snow

You know when the weathermen predicts snow with rain and no one actually expects it to happen? No? That's just me? Well, I had seen snow in the forecast for about a week and yesterday I finally decided it wasn't going to happen. It had been sixty degrees the week before and I wasn't going to get my hopes up. I even planned to go to the gym before school this morning, just KNOWING it wasn't going to snow. Yeah, things changed. I woke up a little before my seven a.m. alarm went off, not wanting to get up, and looked out my window. Snow was everywhere and was coming down in sheets!! I was so excited but for some reason I still didn't make the connection that it would get us out of school. I checked Twitter for updates and everyone said there was a two-hour delay. Okay, I could deal with that. More sleep. But no, I just cannot sleep when it's snowing. I ended up getting out of bed, finding out school actually was cancelled, and then getting ready for a snow day. 

I spent the next couple hours reminiscing off all the fun snow days I had with my friend Chrissy and Becca and Kari. I did different things with all of these girls but in combination, we made igloos, cookies, tunnels, snow cream, slides... It was incredible fun and I miss those days like no other. So today, Kari, Becca, and I decided it would be a perfect day to have an old-fashioned snow day. With a movie, Chick-fil-A, a game, and lots of dessert, it was simply perfect. So thankful for these two girls!
