Grey Days


I’m back! I’m alive! I survived the snowstorm unfortunately named Nemo! Actually I got the h out of New York before that snowstorm hit. Well actually as the snowstorm was hitting. I was sweating bullets as flights were being cancelled left and right at the terminal gate. My husband and I were on separate planes and as my plane took off, I thought he was already an hour in the air. Wrong. He was still sitting on the plane, on the runway where he stayed for FIVE hours before finally taking off. I will never complain of a late take off ever again, right?

Of course the snowstorm wasn’t as bad as they predicted but still this Texan girl is terrified of blizzards. Unless they are from Dairy Queen, and then I welcome them with open hands and a spoon.

So we get home and it’s sunny, then it’s rainy. Then it’s sunny! Then it’s rainy. Today it’s just Seattle, so I dressed accordingly. (Is this how the cool kids in the northwest dress? No? Okay cool.) Oh and that cord that’s hanging out of my purse? It’s my ear phones. I didn’t realize it was there until right now. One day we will be professional at this picture taking thing and everything will be tucked, ironed and in it’s place. One day.

  14. I'm loving the casual vibes you have going on in today's post! Northern ladies do tend to dress a lot like this…mainly because it's our only way to remain somewhat stylish without ruining our favorite pieces! Hope you are staying dry!
