The perfect ending to the perfect day...

Aaaand...it snowed! A lot. It started Friday afternoon. At work, my co-workers and I were whispering excitedly to each other about the 1 - 2 inches that the weatherman was predicting. As soon as the first flakes started falling, I continued in my annual tradition of going out in the first big snowfall with a work boyfriend (work boyfriend being the person who you take break with, pal around with, etc. at work). I called him up and said, "Get over here, stat!" and then we stood around outside as the frosty flakes settled on our eyelashes. It really is the most beautiful time of year.
 
The 1 - 2 inches predicted has turned into about 12 inches, with flakes still coming down. I spent most of my day hopping between church services, eating, and watching the snow tumble down. I also got out and shovelled the walk which has left my arms aching. The snow is so heavy! Time for hot chocolate and carols!
 
The snow, of course, means a wardrobe change. Although the temperature was only at freezing today, it's supposed to drop severely below freezing for the rest of the week with tonnes of wind. It's time to pull out my Khombu snow boots, pile on the sweaters, and wear long underwear. Hmmm, I see mom jeans in my future...
 
Today, I wore a turtleneck (even though I always feel like I'm choking when I wear them), a black dress, polka dot tights, new booties from ModCloth, my H&M faux leather jacket, handmade mittens from a cancer charity event, and a scarf which I purchased from a church sale. I believe it was made by women in Kenya working in a co-op. I really wish I could remember now...it might be India. Either way, it's fuzzy and warm and I love burrowing my face into it. It's made by the same women who knit my super nice cardigan.
 
I'm wiped. This snow is making me antsy to go out and play! Christmas is near and I've so much to get done! I'm done with finals on the 15th & I have left to do 1 presentation, 3 papers, and 3 exams. So close. Then I'm going to decorate the tree, watch movies, read A Christmas Carol and Holidays on Ice, drink hot chocolate with friends, decorate a ginger bread house... Hmmm, what else should I do?
 
Keep warm & see you soon! xx

You look so adorable! I love the outfit from head to toe and I'd wear this too if I wouldn't feel cold so easily ;)
But I love all the snow, which we had that much of it over here!
