First Snow


On Saturday morning, we woke up to our first major snowfall of the winter!  Technically still fall, but five inches of snow later and we've definitely moved onto winter here in Michigan.

I seriously always love the first snow of the year - I feel like a kid again.  We woke up and ran outside with Brady who loved it even more than I did.  I mean just look at that face in the last picture!  It makes me laugh every single time.  Last year he was still pretty little and didn't really 'get' the snow so we were excited to see how he reacted to it now.  Obsessed.  He had so much fun running and jumping in it and when we made him come inside, he just sat and stared out the front windows whining to go back out, ha!

It snowed allll day long, which made for the perfect day around the house.  We made pancakes and bacon for the breakfast, did some housework and cleaning up, and then spent five? six? hours on the couch watching Michigan/MSU college football dominate.  We pulled ourselves together around dinnertime to head out and check out a holiday farmers market where it was SO windy and cold that I couldn't even get my phone out to take pictures and then to grab Italian food for dinner.

After that it was back home to the couch and Netflix and our first fire of the year!


I'm not even going to tell you guys how many attempts it took to get this terrible picture.  For some reason, Brady would not sit anywhere near me so I practically had him in a choke hold while Nick was holding a treat to get him to look up.  All for a grainy, off centered, dark picture but you win some, you lose some!

Ps. I wore this scarf all weekend long - like literally, I wore it on Friday, Saturday and Sunday - and it's so warm and awesome.

Sunday was for church, errands, and the usual.  Now I'm just wrapping up my weekend on the couch, watching the American Music Awards (wondering how J. Lo does not age at all) and anxiously awaiting this caramel coat - which is on sale! - to be delivered tomorrow.  I mean, the toggles!  I can't wait!  

Hope you had fabulous weekends, too!

  1. If I didn't know better-I'd say those photos were from a catalogue shoot! Awesome. I'm jealous of your yard!!! I can't wait for a decent snowfall in DC. At least the weather is chilly enough for fires!

  2. How incredibly beautiful & perfect to keep in the holiday spirit! We had our first freeze in Texas this weekend! It actually got down to 30 which is by far the coldest we have had. We usually get crappy ice storms in February but I love seeing such pretty snow pics :)

  12. I am so jealous of the snow, it looks like a winter wonderland! Well kind of jealous, I can't drive in the snow and whenever it snows in the South they shut down everything - literally people flock to the grocery store to buy milk and eggs, its so funny!

  20. Those snow pictures are beautiful!! So jealous of your weather! Its oddly warm here in Colorado right now. And I can never get my dogs to look normal in photos. As soon as a camera comes their way they cant stay still!

  32. I never mind snow when its on a weekend :) If it was a work day, I'd be miserable & cursing the snow.
    Oh, the things we have to do to get a good dog picture :)
    .... speaking of which, did you post your pics with Brady you had done yet? I didnt want to miss them

  33. I can’t believe you guys got your first snow already! I agree the first snow is always so exciting! Brady looks so cute having so much fun – same with Stella she was just a baby during the winter last year and got lost in the snow – I can’t wait to see her play this year.

  34. Your pictures make it look so pretty and it totally was when it was falling I felt like mesmerized even though I know what it looks like. It snowed literally from Friday evening to Saturday evening and I want to say close to 10 inches fell. I was pretty surprised with how much actually fell, I'm sure Brady is having the time of his life :)!

  35. The snow passed right over STL...and as much as I love it, I'm okay with that right now!! Brady dog looks adorable in the pics though :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. So pretty!! It sounds like a great weekend. There really is something magical about the first snow. I'm impressed that you got out and about. I think it would have been hard to get out of my pjs :)

  37. I must admit, I do miss the first snow of the season. But then I remember January/March/April of last year and miss it a little bit less... ;-) Beautiful pictures!! -- Lisa | Two Martinis

  38. The snow is gorgeous! We haven't gotten it yet in Ohio, but I'm looking forward to that first snowfall. It is always the most magical. Also, I'm loving the J Crew coat. Beautiful!

  39. Oh my goodness, Brady running around in the snow is too stinking cute!!!! :D :D :D
    Do you guys still have a lot of snow on your trees around there? That's my favorite part about big snows... the trees look so gorgeous with snow on their branches! Usually it goes away after the first day but our tree snow is still going strong and I love it!

  40. It's so beautiful!! Like a winter wonderland! I was dying over your snaps - I've never experienced close to that much snow before

  41. That picture of you and Brady turned out fabulous!! That's definitely not what I look like on a snow day!! It does look beautiful though!!!
