A few of you have said you wouldn't mind a post now and then about life in general. I know 99% of you breeze through here to see outfits, so this post is for the people who have asked to see a little more of me and Christopher (and for my mama, of course).
Like lots of people in the midwest, we had a snow day today (yippee!). After working in my study all morning, Christopher and I went outside to build our snow-hippo (prepare for disappointment; it was not a success). I made Christopher take this picture to prove that I do indeed own a coat, wear it every day, and look pretty darn boring in it. (But there will always be people who say "You must be cold in [insert outfit here]!" to which I present you this coat, which would keep a snowman warm).
The snow was super powdery and despite our best efforts (involving our recycling bin, a shovel, and multiple snowballs), we had to give up on our elaborate plans to make a snow hippo and we decided to play snow football with Christopher's brother instead.
I'm not going to post the pictures of the two of them playing this afternoon because they are both making silly monkey faces at me. It was a terrific day; I sort of wish we'd have snow days more often :)
