Snow Day Shennanigans

We live in South Carolina, a place where snow can be the most exciting thing all winter. I love a good snow day, and I woke up yesterday to several inches of snow, and it was lovely. We didn't have power until about 10 am, so I spent the first part of my morning on the couch under 5,000 blankets. Kyle heated the tea kettle over our gas logs and made us coffee. Literally minutes later our power came back on, but our jerry-rigged coffee was delicious nonetheless.

It was a slow snow day consisting mostly of watching movies, baking cookies, and wrapping Christmas presents. The monogrammed pocket tee above from SpringerMade is going to be the perfect give for my niece! I know she will love it. You still have a few weeks left to use the code EMILYG for 15% off at SpringerMade.

Also, have you watched Dumplin' on Netflix yet? I watched it yesterday per my mom's recommendation, and it was such a cute movie! I definitely recommend watching it if you like feel-good movies.

What are your favorite snow day activities?

High Five for Friday No. 2

Anybody else out there happy it's Friday? We've got snow on the forecast for this weekend, and I've got my fingers crossed that it will actually happen! Here in the south, snow is a big deal, but it's also unpredictable so I guess we'll see!

Here are my five highlights for the week on this chilly Friday!

No.1 - We've been dogsitting a Goldendoodle named Pippa for our friends while they're out of town, and I am in. love. with this dog. She is so big and fluffy, full of personality, and Ollie is going to be so sad when she has to go back home. Good thing they only live 10 minutes away!

No. 2 -  I tried this recipe for healthier thumbprint cookies this week, and I must say, for a healthier option, they are delicious! Have you ever heard of the Trim Healthy Mama way of eating? I've taken a stab at somewhat following their plan this week, and I'm hoping to get the hang of it and make it a consistent way of eating for me and Kyle! I'd love to know if you've ever tried it and saw success!

No. 3 - I've been wearing the JORD watch that I talked about in this post a lot this week, and I really love the casual but stylish touch it's been bringing to all of my outfits. There's still time to enter the giveaway for a $100 credit on their site!

No. 4 - My hair is probably the longest it's ever been, but I've been wanting to chop it to a lob for some time now. I haven't taken the plunge just yet, but this is an inspiration photo that I'm loving. 

No. 5 - I've been loving my Corkcicle water bottle lately. I replaced the standard lid with one of their straw lids, and I now use it all the time! I love that it keeps my water cold for so long, and I love that they have the straw option for people like me who only like to drink water from a straw. I added a cute monogram decal by SpringerMade because #monogramlife.

That's all for today, folks! I hope you have a great weekend, and stay warm!
