Yep, it has happened. Chicago’s first snow dusting:
It is premature in my book, but totally typical of Chicago. In our city, you cannot even begin to predict what is going to happen weather-wise. This was taken almost two weeks ago and the following weekend we had 60 degree weather followed by severe thunder storms, go figure 😉 I feel lucky that we get to experience all the different seasons around here, but I don’t think I’d be too sad if I moved somewhere warm and sunny all the time. My mood seems tied to the weather… But still – it makes me nuts that we were JUST enjoying warm/fallish weather and now I’m scrambling to get Evan some weather appropriate clothes:
Anywho, the snow has put me into wintertime mode. Hot chocolate, throw blankets, and pulling out/buying new Christmas decorations:
Tar-jey is so dangerous… They had the CUTEST owl/vintage-y ornaments so naturally I had to make Evan his own mini tree above… But really how cute are these:
Target also has holiday scents out. One of my favorite products had “Pine” scent so I snagged those too:
Time still seems to fly by at hyper speed. I realized I’ve never blogged about Evan’s first birthday – which I still will. I put in a TON of work for it and made decor that I’d love to share – so when I find the pictures I’ll blog about it 4 months late. I’ve also not blogged about Halloween even though it did happen and our mini werewolf (of course the costume we LOVED he hated, so pictures in it were nearly impossible) hung out with his bff Jonathan:
Like I said, with winter on the way we are scrambling to get out decor and set up our casa with holiday cheer the first holiday season we are spending here.
Thanks for taking the ride with us!
