Five on Friday, Vol. 17: Snowed In

Happy Valentine's Day!
I thought about making a Valentine themed post, but I've never been big on decorating for this holiday. Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those people who hate Valentine's Day. In fact, my parents always made sure to make this holiday special regardless of whether or not I was dating someone. The trust is, James and I haven't left the apartment for the past 3 days, so we didn't get to prepare fun details for Valentine's Day this year.
For those of you who don't know the South got hit hard with snow and ice this past week.
So, instead of sharing fun heart shaped goodies, I'm linking up today with DarciAprilChristina, and Natasha to share how we survived being confined to our apartment for 3 straight days.

 If it's gonna snow, you've got to embrace it. During work breaks, James and I took some time to venture outside. I haven't pulled my camera out in quite some time, so it felt good to capture everything. That white stuff may cause chaos, but it sure is pretty.

Hot coffee and tea are essential for surviving cold. It wasn't quite as good as the Starbucks barista makes, but thankfully the Verismo gets very close!  Extra warm points for drinking out of a cute mug.

Let's be honest, the best part of a snow day is cuddling up on the couch under layers of blankets. When I saw this quote on Tuesday it made me smile. If it's gonna snow we might as well enjoy it :)

I don't know about y'all, but my toes are first to get cold. Cute fun socks are necessary. Even better when Christmas socks get to be reused as snow day socks!

{F O U R}

Good TV shows are key. What else are snow days for? The Olympics were my first choice, but when boring sports were on Criminal Minds was my go to. Love. That. Show.

{F I V E}

Want to know how to make snow days even better? Get Valentine's flowers delivered. My parents annual flower delivery just happened to arrive a day early (major props to the flower shop for delivering flowers in spite of the crazy weather) and they were a welcomed surprise. After 3 days of only seeing white the pretty colors added some excitement. 

I hope you all had a good week and have a great day with your loved ones! James and I are off to celebrate our first married Valentine's Day!

  1. We haven't left the house in three days too! We have tickets to the movies tonight, so I'm crossing my fingers we're able to venture out! I hear you girl! That mug is absolutely perfect for you, and can I tell you I'm OBSESSED with Criminal Minds?! They're always on our DVR and Sieg gets annoyed that my show is over-taking our DVR space LOL Happy Valentine's Day love! xo

  2. Girl I am so jealous of your snow and ice!! Wish FL would get that ;) Looks like a great time even if you are going stir crazy :) Heres to hoping you get to get out soon! Happy weekend!

  4. Love your snow pictures! And like you, hot chocolate, fuzzy socks, and a good t.v. show are all musts on my snow days in!

  5. Warm socks are a MUST for me in the winter too!! SmartWool socks are my jam all winter long! I grew up in GA (Go Jackets!) but my recent move to Michigan means lots of snow and months and months of cold days. Your flowers look stunning, they give me hope for spring and warmer temps. Happy Valentine's Day and thanks for sharing!!
