snow days for grown ups

Today the wind was howlin'. The snow was fallin'. And I was...shovelin'. Or sitting. Mostly sitting. It was the second snow day of the season, the first of 2011. And. It. Was. Wild.

A giant tree branch broke off from the tree in front of our apartment this morning from a combination of the heaviness of the snow and the strength of the wind. Currently, it is sitting on the side of the street. Thing's huge. There was almost two feet of snow hangin' out here in West Newton.

Somewhere under that pile is my car, Charlotte. You'll be happy to know that she's now free and can breathe again. I know, you were concerned. So was I.

Also, have you heard about HGTV's Dream Home 2011? It's in Stowe, VT this year, which is (kinda) hella close to here. Thing. Is. GORGEOUS. Don't believe me?

THAT'S JUST THE BEDROOM. Yep. Check out the rest of it. Swoon. Die a little. Then enter. We've all got an equal shot at winning, right? But if you win, you'll have to promise to take me there on a vacation. Seriously.


  1. Guuurlll, you CRACK. ME. UP. I just love you and your blog and your comments on MY blog. I haven't really seen much of the HGTV dream home this year yet, but you bet I WILL. Every year I enter to win, like, every day. With my email address AND my husbands. Ha!

    You live in Newton, NJ? My mom grew up there, I think. I was born in Montclaire! :)

  2. BTW, I gave you an award over at my blog!! No pressure to post on it, I just wanted to let you know! :)

  3. I think snow days must motivate some of us to think of the HGTV Dream House--just posted about it today! Haha! Hope you're staying warm. :)


Oh, herro there.
