A very sweet blog reader sent me the BEST package in the mail last week. Nancy first emailed me with some suggestions for our fall road trip, and asked if I would like some of the cards she collected when she was a kid. Of course! I was so delighted to open up the envelope and see all these amazing Valentine's! I had a few vintage Valentine's and have been on the lookout for me. I love every single one of these! So many I would have snapped right up if I'd seen them at an antique mall.
My favorite is the deer, or maybe that little space dude.
Oh wait, no, it's the hot dogs! How cute is that hot dog couple??
She also included this little knit outfit with a note saying her husband got it on a bottle of hot sauce over 30 years ago and maybe it would fit my squirrel. Mr. Squirrel is pretty giant, but it first my little ermine PERFECTLY! I have been cracking up every time I look at it.
Haha! I love how tall the hat is. I think this weasel needs a few more outfits. Thank you again Nancy, you are so thoughtful!
I know those Valentines up there made you wonder what we got up to on that love holiday. I had to work actually, but I took some time to finally make a custom banner with the kit I got for Christmas. I think I'll leave it up for a while.
I made Travis some vegan Shirley Temple cupcakes and left him this little display to find. He bought me a GIANT gift pack from Lush that totally blew me away! I can't wait to use all 18 bath bombs! Ah!

Snow Day! Ice Storm!

We don't get much winter weather here in Tennessee and an inch of snow can shut Nashville down. The past few days everyone was been freaking out and buying all the bread at every grocery store in town because of an impending winter storm. We didn't get the foot of snow some were predicting, but the whole city was covered in ice. It was so bad the store I work at actually didn't open, which hasn't happened in YEARS. Travis didn't have to go to work either. I was so happy to be snug at home and not slipping and sliding around town. We had a great day.
I worked until 4 them night before so I slept late. When I woke up Travis made us french toast with caramelized bananas and we watched That Thing You Do! What a perfect morning. In the afternoon we got bundled up and walked around our neighborhood.
The last ice storm we had was in 1995. It was way worse than this though. I'm so glad our power didn't go out!
It was fun walking around looking at all the frozen plants. We only saw a few other people out, and a few cars. We live on a busy road in a crowded part of town so it was strange.
We kicked lots of things to watch the ice fall off too. Like this sweet caution tape.
We walked around for about 45 minutes until the constant freezing rain got too cold. The rest of the day was spent eating carbs and watching Girls. I finally starting watching it and I love it! We just started season 3.
I'm supposed to work at 6 am tomorrow, but the Mayor is telling everyone to stay home because all the ice and water on the roads is just going to refreeze tonight and be worse tomorrow. I won't be mad if I get another snow day.
