Life Lately

Snowed In

February 8, 2016

Despite his predictions of an early spring last week, it became abundantly clear that Punxsutawney Phil (although unbelievably adorable) was mistaken about that when I woke up on Friday morning to 5 inches of snow. Which is crazy considering the fact that it has been 50 degrees F on Thursday and the sun had been shining basically every day since Jonas hit two weeks ago. But at least I got an excuse to wear my new J. Crew beanie… I wasn’t sure if I’d get a chance to wear it since it’s been so warm lately!

In fact, we got so much snow that morning that when I tried to go to work I couldn’t even make it out of my apartment complex. SO CRAZY.

So instead of heading into the office, I worked from home and stayed all bundled up in multiple blankets until the snow finally stopped falling and I was able to wander out into the winter wonderland. And let me tell you, I have so much respect for people who work from home now. While it was nice to not have to wear pants all day (TMI?), I had the hardest time staying concentrated with my bed tempting me from just the other room!

Did you guys get any snow this past weekend? It looks like we’re supposed to get a few more inches in Connecticut over the next few days, but otherwise we’re on our way to spring!

    • We’ve been getting a ton of snow in just the past two weeks! I guess that it’s making up for the 60 degree F weather we got on Christmas and even two weeks ago!

  • Len Dela Peña Parent

    Awesome post. Thanks for sharing babe. Have a great week.

    Much love, Len

  • We didn’t get any more snow, and for that I am thankful. We’re supposed to get a little this week, but then bring on Spring! 😉

    • Growing up in the south, I never realized just how much 5 inches of snow really is! It got crazy deep in some parts around my apartment!

  • That snow is everything I wanted! I’ve had none so far this year in London :((( but I used to live in Wisconsin and they do snow like nobody else!!! 🙂 xxxx

    • Holy cow, Wisconsin definitely gets a ton of snow every winter!! I lived in London for six months and never saw snow in the city either… I’m sure that the city is absolutely gorgeous when it does get a dusting though!

  • Danielle

    Wow I love it!!! So much snow!


    • We’ve gotten so much snow recently! We’re supposed to get some more tonight and then again next week!

    • The snow was so gorgeous! It really turned my apartment complex into a winter wonderland!

  • Beautiful photo! I am slightly jealous that you guys got so much snow! I live in Toronto and we didn’t get any snow this winter — at least none that has stuck around for more than a day. I almost miss the snow.. but I am looking forward to spring. Have a nice day 🙂

    • All of our snow came out of nowhere! We went from 60 degree F weather to 20 degrees and a ton of snow! I’m so excite for spring too, mostly so that I don’t have to wear pants or tights to work everyday!

  • How gorgeous is all this snow! So jealous! I always love when we get lots of snow it always makes it feel super cozy and nice!

    • My favorite thing to do on a snow day is to bundle up and watch the snow fall with a cup of tea. Unfortunately my boyfriend and I are long-distance, so I spend most of my time cuddling with my cat!

  • Definitely looks like a winter wonderland!!

    • Friday was definitely a winter wonderland! I definitely didn’t expect to get snowed in!

  • I love being snowed in! snow days are the best!

    • I had such a relaxing day working from home! I even worked from my bed at one point, which is so naughty but it was just too tempting!

  • Jenessa Sheffield

    You are so lucky, snow days are my favorite! Thanks for sharing babe, wishing you a great day, loves!



    • This was actually my first real snow day! I went to college in North Carolina, so 1 inch there meant that we got classes off but there wasn’t much snow to play in!

  • Woohoo, aren’t snow days the BEST?! And ps, as a current work from homer, I totally get the no pants thing!;-)

    • Not having to wear pants was probably the highlight of my morning and I made sure to text my best friend about it haha

  • Yana Kasekamp

    We just got snowed in here in Boston so I’ve been watching Netflix the whole day haha. Awesome post, thanks for sharing. 🙂

    • Are y’all getting hit like crazy with this recent snowstorm?? Connecticut’s getting a little bit but not as bad as other New England states!

      • Yana Kasekamp

        Oh yeah, it was bad. I hope everything melts soon. -_-

    • The snow was absolutely gorgeous!

  • Kait Elizabeth

    I love a snow day every so often!! Stay warm and safe. Hugs, Kait

    • Me too! Although they’re much more fun when you’re curled up at home and not worried about getting stuck in the office at work!

  • Wow! You can enjoy the snow from the indoors where it’s warm and cozy.

    • I’m a huge fan of doing exactly that!

  • The snow looks stunning on the trees. Stay warm love xo


    the way to my Hart

    • I was super cozy inside my apartment! I didn’t wander outside until the snowstorm was over, I’m not that crazy!

  • I love to see snow in photos but not so much in real life. It’s supposed to snow here this week… can’t wait for spring!

    • I’m excited for spring to finally get here too!! I need more dresses and open toed shoes in my life right now!

  • It sounds like a much better idea to work from home when it’s so snowy! We haven’t had any proper snow in London this year though it feels quite chilly

    • It really was and I definitely took advantage of the snow day!

  • reneejessome

    We just got a whole heaping of snow last night and still falling this morning! On the plus side, work was cancelled today 🙂

  • merel

    Wow, this looks gorgeous. Such a fairytale.

    • Connecticut is such a winter wonderland in the winter! I’m really loving it!

  • wow, sounds so beautiful. nope no snow over here only rain and wind :/

    x Sandra

    • That stinks, but I totally understand that because I grew up in the south! This is the most snow I’ve definitely ever seen other than when I would go skiing out west with my family!

  • OMG, I wish it was like this in London! Looks amazing!



    • London would look so gorgeous covered in snow!!

  • Oh wow, that sounds crazy! I really want it to snow over here in the UK – I’m waiting with my camera in hand every day haha 🙂 Your day of working at home wrapped in a blanket sounds lovely.

    • I always keep my camera handy just for that reason! And I really loved my day of working at home, all bundled up while watching the snow fall!

  • It really does look like a winter wonderland, we’ve had no snow really in the UK, just horrendous wind! x

    • That really stinks!! I wish that I could send y’all some of the snow that we’ve been getting recently!

  • I wish it would snow here! All we have gotten is freezing rain!

    • Oh wow that sounds horrible! Other than all of the snow we’ve been getting, the weather’s actually been pretty nice lately!

  • Tiffany Griffin

    I want a snow day!!

    • We’ve been getting so much snow lately!! We have about a foot on the ground right now!

  • We had a TON of snow here in Colorado last week! I think it finally made it over to you. So glad you stayed safe inside and warm!

    • I have a friend who lives in Colorado and she’s always sending me pictures about how much snow you guys are getting over there! It’s been such a crazy winter!

  • That’s too much of it !! It doesn’t snow where I live. Stay safe! Have a lovely day!

    • Yeah I couldn’t believe how much snow we’ve gotten just in the past week!

  • Oh so beautiful and snowy. We had so much wind in London and snow is so rare here x

    • This is the first place that I’ve ever lived where it actually snows (i.e. more than 2 inches for the entire winter), so it’s been a crazy winter for me!

  • As much as I love snow it is freezing to be out!! keep warm!

    • I like the snow most when I’m curled up under a blanket inside!
