No Snow Day

In case you’re wondering, no, I do not forgive Mr. Snow aka the Snow Day God. I now officially hate winter. Time to go find my boots.

What I Did for the Love of a Hot Tub
During the huge storm that hit Maine on Sunday I got it into my head that I was going to enjoy the snow from the bubbly depths of my mom’s hot tub. So I bundled up in a borrowed parka (no way was I doing manual snow removal in my pink coat) and got to work. Well 20 minutes later I realized I was insane and that even though the back deck was cleared off, it was filling back in quickly. Also, I was now thoroughly frozen solid and there was no way I was going out there again in my bathing suit when it was so bitterly cold outside. On the upside, all of that shoveling probably burned off a few cookie calories so I suppose it all worked out in the end.

An Animal Crossing Christmas

It’s definitely looking a lot like Christmas in our apartment right now, but I’ve also been decking the halls a bit in my house on Animal Crossing too. How cute is the little tree that I bought at Tom Nook’s store!? I hope they’ll have more decorations available soon. I keep waiting for it to dawn on me that picking peaches, fishing, and delivering packages to the other quirky game characters is going to get old, but it just doesn’t. It’s actually extremely addictive. Did I mention that “Gherkins” is the name of my town? Today I picked every peach in the village so I could pay off my mortgage.

Good Bye Butch!
I’m a little bummed though since my favorite curmudgeonly town resident, Butch, decided he was going to move out. I probably should hate him since he sent me on a three day wild goose chase in search of a Char fish that never materialized, but honestly I’ll miss him and his matronly green striped outfits. Hopefully someone cool moves into the vacant house.

Let is Snow
According to the weather report it’s supposed to snow a little in Boston tonight. Video games must be imitating life now as it’s been snowing in Gherkins all day. Really this post was all just an excuse to show off my new purple outfit and matching violet shoes.

New Bright Berry (aka Pink) Coat

While I wasn’t able to get the Royal Violet Lady Day Coat from J. Crew, I did finally buy a coat this weekend. I ended up with the Bright Berry Lady Day Coat, which I’m proud to report is equally as happy a color as the purple version I originally coveted.

The best part is that I got it on sale! I’m so glad I waited, and I’m equally grateful to J.Crew-aholics for constantly reminding me about special promotions and coupons.

Let the grumpy snowflakes fall as they will, my new pink coat has cheerful superpowers that will melt their slushy misery! Bring on the snow days, I’m ready for you. Now I just need to find the perfect accent scarf. Should it be cream? Black? A contrasting color? Or a lighter shade of pink? Decisions…decisions…
