All snowed in with nothing to do!

It's officially happened. I don't currently have ANY projects that I need to be working on, and I have no idea what to do with my free time! Granted, we still don't have invitations, but that is because I am still working on the design. And I'm actually not even stressed about them, because I have my plan all mapped out, we just need to finalize everything. I haven't had to go to work in 2 days and normally I would be so happy to have time to work on wedding stuff. But, I am so caught up/ ahead of schedule that I have actually been able to..... relax.....and boy has it been wonderful. Here is the reason why I haven't had to work this week:


{looking down our street from the non-existent driveway}



{tree in our front yard that fell from the weight of the ice & snow}



{Carter investigating the damage!}

So, as you can see, it is a mess. There are about 2 or 3 inches of solid ice covered with at least 2/3 inches of solid snow. Days like this make me thankful that I don't live in the Northeast, where this happens way too often! Instead of working on wedding stuff, I have been watching hour after mind-numbing hour of the Real Housewives of Orange County, of which I have probably seen each episode at least 3 or 4 times. I just love it! After that marathon was over, I had to switch to the Soap Network and old episodes of the O.C. and One Tree Hill. When I haven't been losing brain cells in front of the TV, I have been hanging out with this little snow-loving guy:

Gosh, isn't he the cutest? He would stay out in the snow all day if I would let him. It is just the best thing to watch him romp around and dive in the big piles of snow. As much as I love being at home with him, and being off work, I don't know how much more of this weather I can take. On the bright side, we have 117 days until our honeymoon in Maui! Yes, it's a long time, but at least we have something to look forward to!

I remember the last ice storm that hit Lexington about five years ago. I hope this one is a little better than that one, it was a doozy! :)
